St. Patrick's Day Parade and Carter turns 10 months!

My brother and my sister-in-law throw a fun St. Patrick's Day parade every year. They own a home on the parade route. So it is very convenient! We had a lot of fun! And our little man turned 10 months old!

This week we switched him to a convertible car seat and he said his first word "Mama"! Very happy about this as Samantha said "Dada" first :)

Cheeks for days.......

They love each other!

St. Patrick's Day flashback. Her first St. Pat's Day was in the NICU in 2012.

Samantha's 3rd Birthday

A few weeks ago our baby girl became not so much a baby anymore! Samantha turned 3 years old! Please join me in shaking our heads in disbelief....

She had a Paw Patrol themed party and a gymanstics place here. And she had a BLAST! It was all worth it...the planning...the $$$$! Everything was worth it to see the joy on her little face :)

She also had her 3 year appt on Monday. And I am SO happy to report that in the first time in 3 years...she did not cry or scream at the doctor's office. Which was huge for all of us! :) Only too 3 years. haha. She used to be so scared to
go! Her stats are:

26lbs 9oz
34.25"
11th percentile for height
4th percentile for weight

She is still a peanut princess!!!

Here are a few pics from her birthday!

Carter turns 6 months and a photo dump!

Our little chunker turned 6 months this past month! His 6 months stats are:

17lbs 14oz
26.5 inches
55% for weight and 51st for height

He's got his two bottom teeth! And is moving (rolling) around like crazy!! He's gets up all all fours and like does this hop! Its so cute! I am thinking he will be crawling VERY soon. Yikes. He LOVES to be tickled and has  just the cutest most contagious laugh ever!!

Sam is doing great. Talking up a storm and growing up too fast! The "bottle fairy" came a few weeks ago. She would ONLY drink milk out of a bottle. She would drink water and juice just fine out of a sippy or an open cup..but was SO attached to the bottle for milk. But we had to just bite the bullet. So the bottle fairy came and took all her bottles to the babies who need them. And left her a daniel tiger trolley instead. Its been tough though. She will hardly drink any milk now :( Hopefully in time this changes!

Things have been so busy here! And right now we are all a little sick. Blah. But I wanted to blog about his 6 month stuff before he turns 7 months this December :)

Here are a few photos from the day Carter turned 6 months, Thanksgiving and tree hunting!

We are pretty excited for Christmas!! We had Christmas card photos of the kids taken at a tree farm! Will share those once cards go out! :)

Carter "chose" a snowman helicopter ornament! He loves snowmen!

Samantha chose a stuffed rudolph ornament!

Searching for her tree!

How cute is this sweater? Perfect for tree hunting!

My beautiful girl

Happy Thanksgiving times two!
