One More Month.....

I can't believe Carter is only one month away from turning ONE - where has the year gone?? He is cruising all over the place these days, has 5 teeth (3 on top, 2 on bottom), loves eating whatever we are eating and has almost completely weaned himself from nursing -so sad! He is weighing just over 20 pounds. He is STILL a great sleeper - goes to bed around 6:30pm and sleeps until 7:30-8am. Takes 2 naps per day - generally 1.5-2.5 hours each. Can't complain! He is a happy baby and loves watching and playing with his big brother!

Here is the look he gave me when I asked him to smile......

Happy 11 months Carter -we love you!!

{Pumpkin Festival 2011}

My brother flew into town for the weekend and we drove the boys down to our hometown for its annual Pumpkin Festival! Ahh - nothing like the good ole' P Fest ~ brings back such memories! This was (and still is) THE festival of the year in Morton. It was strange to go back after so many years of being away but felt like home all in the same. Kayden had such a great time and I was so happy to see him enjoying it like I used to - definitely something we'll have to make a tradition! Grandma and Pop Pop met us there too!

Kayden got to ride some rides (his new favorite thing!)

And we also checked out the parade on Saturday morning - Kayden was so excited to watch the parade and more importantly, get the candy that they threw - Uncle Brian was helping him with that!

Before we left town, we went to visit some old neighbor friends of ours and they still live across the street from our old house. I couldn't help but snap a picture of my childhood home.....I lived there for 19 years - such great memories!! (Hope the new owners don't mind!) :) IMG_3743
What a great trip - we will definitely be going back next year! Maybe we can even get Kraig to go with us. ;)

Good Sleeper!

Carter is such a happy boy when he wakes up - I love to see his face peering over the crib smiling at me when I go in to get him up!

Beautiful Weather!

We had a beautiful weather weekend and the boys loved playing outside! Oh how I'm going to miss this warm weather - wish I could bottle it and pull it out in January! :)

Happy Teeth!

Kayden had his first dentist appointment today - what a big boy!! Here here is in the waiting room patiently waiting his turn.

He got to watch Mommy get her teeth cleaned first and then it was all his turn! They gave him sunglasses so the light wouldn't hurt his eyes - he thought that was really cool!!

He did such a good job staying still for her and his teeth all checked out clean - whew! :)
