Growing up too fast!

So many things have happened in the last few weeks since I posted last. Carter decided that we wanted to grow up and start rolling over ALL THE TIME! This is bittersweet for me cause he's growing up but now I can't just leave him and know that he'll be there when I get back. So much for my independence! He had been doing some rolling over the last few weeks... but yesterday he really got the hang of it and just went crazy. He was going from back to front and front to back. He's a champ! And I'm sure he'll get bored with this rolling over stuff and decide to do something bigger and better - that's definitely the Jason in him!

Carter and his aunt Maria... We had her bridal shower last Sunday and Carter was lucky enough to be invited! (like we had a choice... he is sooooo attached to his mommy!)

We went out to my mom and dad's camp last night to see how things were going... The pavilion was down (thanks to a huge tree that fell on it during a storm)... and we were missing several trees that my dad had cut down. He says there are only 14 trees that were cut down... but it looks more like 24. I knew it was only a matter of time before the trees were cut down. Instead of having a cabin in the woods... he has a cabin in the field... with a few trees...

We're working really hard on a mohawk.... we'll get there someday.... but isn't he just too stinkin' cute?

An absolute ham!

Daddy and Bean....

Mommy and bean.... poor thing looks absolutely frightened!
I think he has a good combination of both mommy and daddy... don't you?

I thought I would try posting a video... and see how it goes. Jason was off Wed and so were we! We had a million errands to run... but daddy found time to get him giggling! I just wanted all of you to experience a short clip of my happy baby!

3 month check up

We went to see Dr. Lubold for Carter's three month check-up on Thursday. Carter now weighs 14 lbs. 8 oz. and is 24 1/2 inches long! He is still in the 75th percentile for height and weight and is in the 90th for his head! He is growing like a weed! P.S. he loves his mom!

Summertime.... its only just begun!

You might be wondering what my son is sucking on... If you have identified it as asparagus... you are right! We are right in the middle of asparagus season and Mary and I have been working soooooo hard on bundling a million pounds of asparagus for the last month. (Ok... well maybe not a million...) We were bundling some the other day and it was soooo stinkin hot that Mary gave Carter a piece of asparagus to hold - to help cool him off - since we keep it in the cooler. It was entertaining him and then all of a sudden we heard him sucking on it... it was too funny. He really loves his asparagus already!!

A hard days work deserves a long nap! This is what my son looks like at work almost every day. Carter is the only one with the 'no clothes policy' - if you were wondering... And as you can tell - my son is a thumb sucker...

Carter got to go swimming for the first time on Sunday. I wasn't sure what to expect... but he loved it! Obviously he is gonna be a water baby this summer. He really enjoyed his time in the water... so much that he pooped on his nana's leg. That was quite the experience for the both of them!

I think my son is part spitbug. I am constantly wiping his chin... so much that he has broken out in a rash due to the constant rubbing and heat! Poor thing! But obviously it doesn't affect him one bit!

We had Annie and Claire's graduation party a few weeks ago and had a million visitors that weekend. This is Isabella (Annie's cousin), who was absolutely in love with Carter. She kept kissing on him all night!

I don't even remember where we were or what we were doing... but this picture was too cute not to put on! He is such an angel.

It's been a busy few weeks!

Hey... I just wanted to let everyone know that we are still alive and doing very well! We have had a busy two weeks!!! Janet, Phyl, and the Sweetings were here to visit... so that kept us going for a week! We have also been very busy with work and playing! Carter is changing everyday... and I'm loving every minute of it. He is now giggling all the time to his daddy... but when mom tries to get him to giggle... there is nothing! I guess daddy's just a funnier looking/acting person than his mommy! I will get some pictures on soon!
