Life is Crazy!

We are still here!!! I promise to try to get more pictures up, more often.
We are doing well. Elliot turned 1 a few weeks ago... yes that's right... MY BABY IS ONE!!
It is so hard for me to believe that he has only been a part of our lives for a year... it feels like he has been a part of this family forever!
Elliot is quite the hamm!
He loves to torment his brother.
Eating is his #1 priority!! As soon as he get up... time to eat! If he see's Carter eating anything... he has to eat too! What can I say... he's a growing boy!
Ell is walking like a champ! (running when his brother is chasing him)
He can say "mama" "dada" "woowoowoo" (barking dog) and so on...
At his 1 year check up Elliot weighed 23 pounds and is 30 inches long. (My little chunka munka)
not quite sure what this face is about... but look at those adorable teeth!

Carter had a little mini photo session... and these are the pictures I ended up with...
p.s. I know the kid needs a haircut... he has gotten one since I took these pictures.

What a sweet face...

There's the Carter I know and love!
Nanna and Pap got C this bike for Christmas and he only gets off of it when it is time to eat, needs a bathroom break, or it's time for bed. It's the first thing he seeks out when he gets out of bed in the morning. He LOVES it! oh... did I mention that Carter also LOVES to chase Elliot around the house.

Ell and his balls... 'nuf said.
He carries anything and everything around the house... but prefers to carry balls.
They are fun. They bounce. The dogs chase them when I throw them... what's not to love?!

So by dinnertime... the boys are absolutely sick of me!
That's when the 'fun' parent steps in and saves the day!
What's not to love about daddy????
He winds us up.
We get loud.
We play hide and seek.
We run and he chases us.
We get to do things that mom has been telling us not to do all day.

oh.. and did we mention that he lets us run around the house naked??!!

We were extra wound up this night!

Too cute not to share this one!
Elliot was running laps around the upstairs between bedrooms but was very cautious as he rounded a corner... ya never know when dad was going to be there to scare ya!

Eventually we get both monsters corraled in the bathroom for tubs!
Carter would play in the tub for hours!

Elliot and his nunni's...
Man he loves his nunni's.
He has to have one in his mouth and one in each hand just to fall asleep at night...

Happy Birthday Elliot!!

Today my baby turns 1... bittersweet really...

It is so hard for me to imagine that 1 year ago today I was meeting him. Getting to know his tiny little face. Adjusting to having two children. And loving every minute of it!

God is so good!!!

(I will get pictures up soon! I promise!)
