Carter turns ONE!

Our handsome little guy turned ONE on May 14th!! Can't believe it....

And he started walking a week before his birthday!! He keeps me on my toes :) On his actual birthday we went to Indian Ladder Farms with my Mom to check out the baby animals! It was a great day. And then last weekend we had a small BBQ
with family and friends to celebrate! We went with a golf theme :)

Since I am (once again) too tired to actual blog all my thoughts about this huge milestone and all the happenings in the lives of Samantha and Carter. Here is a classic photo

We are getting ready to move this weekend! Not too far...same town...but I am completely overwhelmed with packing and all things moving related! :) Plus, my poor boy is cutting all of his molars right now at once!!!

Little mommies! So concerned about Baby Sierra!

Easter and Carter turns 11 months old!!

Sometimes I get a bit sad over this blog and how it's mostly a place for me to photo dump and keep a quick record of things that are going on. Sometimes I miss those days when I would blog for hours just typing up my thoughts and experiences at a leisurely pace.

However, the reason (the two reasons) I am not able to do that anymore are well worth it :) They are the two things I blogged about having someday! My little wishes-come-true. Just sometimes I feel a little guilt that I don't keep it up as often as I should. As well as reading and commenting on other blogs.

On that note...cheers to another photo dump!!!

Just doesn't get any better. Blessed.


I mean...come on...

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.......
Pretty girl
Big boy! Last pic in his infant seat!
Mini BFF's
Slept through the whole parade! Even the sirens and bag pipers didn't wake this guy!
A boy and his Papa
They love each other!
Doesn't get much more handsome.
