The big EIGHT months!

Look who's 8 months old!!

He is loving be able to interact more with his big brother and is entertained by everything that he does!
He is mainly off the baby food except for the snacks. He loves trying to eat anything we are eating but is good with fruit, chicken, crackers, bread, etc. Still having a little trouble with dairy but seems to be doing a bit better. He LOVES sitting with us and eating- such a big boy! IMG_2512 IMG_2514
He has also mastered "Dada" and a few times I have heard "Mama" :) and he is trying to crawl!! He's got a bit of an army crawl down and he's working on making himself more mobile - look out!!

Carter's Baptism

We had Carter baptised this weekend and had such a wonderful time with family! My brother and his family came from MI and my sister and her family came over from IN. We decided to do "make your own pizza" night on Saturday evening and had so much fun.

This morning, we had Carter's baptism and it was a wonderful ceremony. It was so nice to have our family there to share it with us!

My brother, Shawn, and Kraig's sister, Danelle, are Carter's Godfather and Godmother.

She did it AGAIN!

My wonderful friend Colleen took more family pictures for us this past week and once again, they turned out amazing!! Every time we have pictures taken, I always get worried that she won't get a good shot and EVERY time - I have so many that I love!! I should really stop worrying. Here are a few (ok, more than a few) of my favorites from our shoot....

Second Generation Friends

Two of my best friends from growing up brought their kids over to play with my boys today. Jenny (who has been one of my best friends since Kindergarten!) has her two kids (who have been on my blog before) Cael and Paige. And April (who has also been one of my best friends since grade school!) just had a baby girl (right before Carter was born!) Savannah. I'm sure these kids are going to grow up to be the best of friends as well! :)
Oh yeah, getting 5 kids to look at the camera AND smile....Impossible!!! :)
