Carter has found a new love of balloons! He is constantly entertained by playing with the balloon... cheap entertainment!

Check out those chompers! His eighth tooth has began to come thru... yay!

Snuggling with the balloon...

One of the many interesting faces that Carter makes at me on a daily basis... this is one of my favorites!

Carter loves sitting in anything that he can. I have several of these baskets that we keep his toys in. He will empty every one and crawl from one to the other.

He has adopted this spoon from the kitchen and plays with it all the time. He has many uses for it. He will use it to get his toys that are at the back of the table that he can't reach... what a smart kid! :)

Chewing on the corner cover... I'm trying to break him of that!

What a look!

So this morning I was sweeping the house like I do quite frequently. While I am sweeping... Carter is playing in the living room, usually watching Noggin or playing with one of his toys. I was sweeping my kitchen floor and realized that he got very quiet and I wondered what he was up to... who knows with this kid! I peeked into the living room and couldn't find him anywhere! Then I looked down at the gate right below me... and there he was... watching me. It creeped me out a bit... just by the way he was peering over the gate at me. I just laughed and grabbed the camera!

I bought Carter an overstuffed chair from Pottery Barn Kids for him after Christmas. I think I was more excited about the chair than he was at first... and now... he absolutely loves the chair! He loves climbing on it... sitting and reading... and chillin'.
These two pictures are a bit fuzzy... but couldn't resist putting them on!

He loves to get inbetween the two couches that I have in the living room and tear everything off the end table. I caught him in the act today....

Carter has discovered that once he clears off the shelf on the coffee table... it makes for a fun time! He is constantly pulling EVERYTHING off the shelf and then is crawling up there and playing. Too funny!

If that isn't a Drew look... I don't know what is!

Still recovering from a busy Christmas!

What a busy December!
Carter is now cruising and taking one step at a time. His newfound love is standing at anything he can get to. He loves hanging out under the dining room table... as you can tell. He has developed quite the hilarious personality and is a ham! He loves waving, clapping, blowing kisses and saying a few words. Of course mama is not one of them unless he is absolutely mad and is yelling at me. He now says dada, nana and tractor (and you can only imagine how happy daddy is to hear that!)

The Drew clan... Maria, Kenny, Chloe, Michael, Patty, Jason, me, and Carter (who was just about done with the whole picture taking).

Carter got his first John Deere tractor for Christmas... We absolutely could not get him off of the tractor all day long! Obviously he can't peddle the tractor and it is too big for him... but he loves it the same. We literally put a belt around his waste and the seat to keep him from falling off.

Checking the tractor over to make sure it is up to his standards... or should I say... his fathers standards!

Maggie wanted in on the action!

So excited!

We opened presents at our house in the morning... He was much more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents!

We got him one of those two stage cars. He can walk behind it to help him learn to walk... and he can also ride it. One of his favorite new toys!
