Mid June Update

On more week of summer flew by. We did go to the pool this week and Carter loved it. This time I couldn't get him out of it. He didn't even need my help or want it. Before we went swimming we went to the park to play with 4 of our little cousins. It was fun. They each go in opposite directions so there is no conversation with anyone except the little ones.

Right now we are in a rut of eating only dog dogs (corn dogs). I'm so sick of corn dogs. But Carter request one anywhere we are. I'm trying to be really creative at the grocery store for more food options. If it doesn't have a wienie in it we won't eat it!
Chris and I are still amazed everytime Carter talks. Last night we were going to bed and Carter looked at us and said "Momma and Daddy". Who knew the word and would be so fun to ear!


We pulled the pool out of the attic for a little fun. We had more fun sitting and watching Carter. I was trying to warm him up to the water because we have been going to the pool since it got warm.
Carter's first drum set. He has a little stool that he sats on and just pounds away! I'm sure the neighbors just love me.

We save all of our change for Carter. He will sit until all of the coins are in his piggy bank.

Getting Ready For Summer

So we finally did it...Carter went to the nursery at church. I thought it was going to be major drama because he doesn't like being anywhere without us. Chris and I got him signed in and met his teacher. Then the strangest think happened Carter went right to the teacher and wanted on the floor to play with the baby (a little girl). He never even looked back at us. In a way it kind of hurt your feelings because he is growing up way to fast. Yesterday we brought him back to the nursery and he was so excited to go play with all of the babies (Carter calls anyone who is not an adult a baby). Lately we have been working on saying Sea World. Chris said that whenever Carter can say it we will go there. He doesn't quit have it down yet but he knows that whales are here.
This weekend we had a surprise visit from our Papa and Grandma from Austin. We were all glad to get to see them and for them to see Carter. They got him a new Texas football and everytime he goes to play with it he says Papa. Carter also got to play with his cousins and had a great time. He has been saying Nate all weekend. So I think he had a bunch of fun with them.

Picnic at the park- We stopped to see all of the ducks from the dock with our cousins Kinzlee, Wyatt, Kate and Jack.
Since it has gotten warm we had to go and get a turtle sandbox. Carter loves it and spends many hours a day in it.
Carter is into everything. I left him alone outside for only a second and came back to find him digging in all of my flowerpots. He had such a great time.

Prince Carter!
