Trip to Grandma and Pop Pop's

We had a few days off this weekend so we decided to take a trip to Grandma and Pop Pop's house! The boys had such a great time and Grandma had so many fun things planned for us to do! Kayden got some guitar lessons from Pop Pop...

Elburn Days 2011

We went up to Elburn Days tonight to watch a band play with some of our neighbors and Kayden got to ride his first festival ride - he was a bit apprehensive at first but once we got him on it, he LOVED it and went again and again and again!! (taken with my iphone, so not the best photos!)

10 MONTHS old!!

10 months have passed already since little Carter was born, and he's not so little anymore! He is weighing 21 pounds (wow!!) and loves his "big people" foods! He has his two bottom teeth and his top two front left teeth. He is still sleeping great- 12-13 hours at night and two naps during the day, each 1.5-2.5 hours! We love our little sleepers around here! He is pulling up to stand on everything these days and has even taken a few steps with the walking toys.

And big brother Kayden loves to play with him! IMG_3138
And they both love playing with the dogs!! IMG_3140
Even gotta give a little love! IMG_3141
Only TWO more months to go!
