Carter at 1 Year!


Carter had his 1 year well check up today at the doctor and was "well enough to get shots." Poor thing! His ears are still clearing up from their latest infection. Here are his latest stats:



Weight: 23 lb, 9 oz

Height: 30.5 in.

Head: 19 in.



Carter enjoys eating, playing with his new toys, being outside, and reading books (especially "Praise God"). He says a few things--uh oh, hi daddy, Dylan, mama (I swear he said it at the doc today while looking for me), bye, praise God (pretty darn close!). Aside from his ear infections, he is a very happy little boy and easy going. As usual, he is trying to copy all that his big brother does. Oh, and he has no concept of feet first for climbing down steps, beds, etc. We have to keep a close eye on him, because he is a climber :)





Playtime/snuggle time with Daddy and Dylan!

Praise God!

Carter knows a few words, but oddly knows how to somewhat say, "Praise God." Like his older brother, he loves his "Praise God" book (courtesy daycare). Here, if you listen closely, you can hear him "say" it. Carter is too cute!

Not our house. Not our garage.

Dylan & The Tournament

video

After watching lots of NCAA tournament games, Dylan started shooting free throws. I didn't know he was paying attention to exactly what the players do. It was great!

Dylan loves pizza...

...for him, pizza is a healthy alternative to the rest of his diet.

Carter loves food...

...and has trouble waiting for it - won't let it out of sight.

Already a love for the game!

Shoe Shopping!

A good way to attract business...


Brotherly discussion at the mall (in window)...


Looking good, my man!


Super happy about his new kicks...


We figured we'd go with the always reliable Lego sneakers...

If anyone asks, they are Lego "basketball" shoes.

Today, in the news...

Playtime!

We'll call the initial take-down a "hug". Dyl loves making Carter crack up.

Looking Good!

Where did they go?
