We've been busy!

He was watching his Nana so intently the other night.... she got about a million smiles out of him too! He loves to watch people and take it all in.

I was trying to give him a little tummy time and I couldn't resist taking pictures 'cause he was crackin' me up! He was just being too comical.

All smiles... all the time!! (Even when we're at work!)

That's Annie, Charlie and Jackson. We walked down to Mary's one day to check out the chickens and boy did we have an interesting time. On our way down, we noticed that one of the white chickens were out and that caught Jackson's eye. Well, he began running towards the chicken and when she saw him running towards her, she began running towards him. Annie and I began cracking up because it looked like one of those commercials where the two long lost lovers are running at one another while the Carpenter's are playing in the background. Too funny! As the chicken got a little closer, Jackson realized she was getting a little 'too close for comfort' and turned and ran back towards us. We finally made it down to the chicken pen and Jackson began picking dandelions and was throwing them to the chickens still in the fence. The white chicken that was loose kept following Jackson, so he began hiding between Annies legs yelling "Shooo Shoo!" What a character! We really enjoyed their visit... although it wasn't long enough!

Our little farmer man.... the flannel was a definite hit with daddy!! If Jason had his way, Carter would have flannel and camoflague on every day!

On Sunday, Annie was watching Charlie and Jackson while mommy helped celebrate Cindy's birthday in Pittsburgh. She brought the munchkins out to the farm and we went for a walk. Carter slept the entire time... whats new! But Charlie took in the world while getting a free ride out of Annie. What a happy, slobbery man!

Of course Jackson had to sit on every tractor (more than once)! Luckily for Annie and myself, Jason was around to take care of the heavy lifting! These two are the best of friends...

We went to the park for the first time while Jess and the boys were home... boy oh boy did we have fun!! This is Carter enjoying himself at the park. Doesn't he look like he's having a blast.... At least Jackson and Courtney (one of Carter's many women) had fun.

Obviously something caught his attention... maybe it was the million kids running around screaming at the park.

What a ham! This is my little man all the time. He enjoys life and has quite the personality! A little too much Drew sometimes! That's definitely a look i've seen before... from daddy!

All smiles here!

Carter finally smiled for the first time the other day... I laughed after I took the picture cause I thought he looks like a turtle or something. But I don't care... I got one of his first smiles on camera! priceless... Oh yeah... forgot to add that it was his father that he was smiling at. (Jason made sure I put that in there!)

Jason was away all last weekend at trout camp and as soon as he came home he snatched the kid up and didn't let him go. These are some of the pictures I took of him laughing and smiling at his daddy... they are too cute together!

I had to add one of me and my baby... he absolutely loves his bathtime and snuggling afterwards!

This is one of my favorite pictures I have taken so far... he's just too stinkin cute!

Jess, Jackson and Charlie are in town this week... so I'm sure there will be many interesting pictures to come...

Lilly came to visit!!!!!!

At last! Beth and Lilly made it up to visit us from Breezewood! I can't tell you how nice it was to have these girls here this weekend... Lets just say... I didn't want them to go! (Thank you Jason for sharing your girls with me for the weekend!)

The minute Lilly and Beth got to the house... Lilly was wanting to get her hands on Carter. She sqealed and climbed everything until she got her hands on him. Beth set her on the couch and set him in her lap. It was all she could do to contain herself enough to hold him! I think they're in love!!!!

Yep! Definitely in love.... I hear wedding bells!

We went to visit my mom and dad friday night and Lilly got the bright idea to put Carter's pants on her head while my mom was changing his diaper. She is such a ham!

We were out running errands and Carter slept the entire time... until we got home and Lilly got her hands on him. I had put him in the pack 'n play to continue sleeping, but Lilly had other plans...

As you can see she got him up and was pretty stinkin proud of herself!

The best of friends!! These two are really gonna cause some trouble when he gets a little older... look out!

Bathtime... at last!

I am excited to announce that Carter has finally lost his bellybutton... yes! I have been waiting for five weeks and five days for this moment. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a picker... and this was the longest five weeks and five days of my life! (not that i was counting or anything)

He absolutely loved it! Not a tear... I think he'll be a water baby! Take note as to where the washcloth is... He has become king of peeing on his mommy. Not so much his father... but mommy is the way to go! I can't tell you how many shirts and pants I have gone through in the last few weeks...

Man... what a gut!

Isn't he too cute! What a happy baby!

Hello thunder-thighs!

So... we went to our 1 month check up the other day. I about hit the floor when the nurse weighed him. She looked at me and said, "So I take it that he doesn't have a problem with eating???" He now weighs 10 lbs. 2 oz.... well... that was last week. When we left the hospital he weighed 7 lb. 2 oz. In one month he gained 3 lbs! He sure loves to eat! Look at the legs and the tummy on the boy!

I guess he was trying to tell me that he's bored... or tired... or hungry... who knows. As fun as a barrel of monkeys... yeah... sure!
