Loving on Baby Carter

Chloe and Ryann on Saturday--our Thanksgiving Part 2

The "Rockets"

Sunday night we headed to Nashville to see the "Rockets"....that is what Chloe thought anyway!  We had tickets to see the Rockettes at the Grand Ole Opry with the Beech Family!  The girls absolutely loved every second of it!  They were so cute...asking questions every time Santa came out!  I have been before but it was even better seeing it with my sweet girl!  We bought our tickets prior to Blake breaking his foot...poor guy...he had to hop up and down several flights of stairs!  Afterwards, we headed to Maggianos to eat dinner--YUM!

Happy Turkey Day

We spent this Thanksgiving eating tons of great food with Grandy and Jenks & then we headed to Papa's house!  Chloe had spent the night with Birdie...when we picked her up, she was dressed up so cute and her hair was curled!  So precious!  Carter enjoyed the day as well..no turkey for him, but he had plenty of milk to keep him happy!  Blake did okay considering the situation!  All in all, it was a great day!  I'm looking forward to the next month of fun Holiday activities!

Brittnye's Baby Shower

In need of an update...

Wow, what a crazy few days it has been. To start, Blake broke his foot on Saturday :( He was doing me a huge favor by carrying a rather large present down the stairs...he slipped on one of our steps and broke his foot in 2 places. He had to have surgery on it today--9 screws and 1 plate later, he is on the mend. The day after Blake broke his foot, Chloe tripped while running at Grandy's house and broke her front tooth (the same tooth has already been fixed once). Well, we headed to the Dentist on Monday, and they were unable to save it :( She had to have her first tooth pulled. It was a sad day (really just for Mommy)!!! The tooth fairy did visit though and left a hefty $10 :) She was able to buy a new Barbie for all the trouble! I will say, she did far better with it all than me...she didn't even shed a tear (not even when the tooth was pulled). Such a brave little girl. Mommy shed quite a few that day!

Well, it is almost Thanksgiving...I'm hoping for an uneventful day of eating and sleeping. Thank the good Lord that Carter is a good baby! He's been the least of my worries lately!

Blakes foot the day he broke it :(

Happy 1st Month-Day Sweet Carter

Just 1 month ago on October 17th, Sweet Carter entered this world.  I honestly can't remember what it was like without him here.  Spending the last few weeks with him has made me incredibly happy and grateful for the time we have had together!  Happy 1 Month Birthday Sweet Boy! 

Here's what you have been up to the last 4 weeks:

*You have far exceeded your birth weight.  You were already above it at your 2 week check up!  I think you are going to be a big boy :)
*You are now taking 4 oz each feeding, which is every 3 hours or so.
*You put yourself on a great schedule from the start...for that, I'm thankful!
*You are great at staying awake after each feeding!
*You are very alert and aware of what is going on AND you hold your head up so well already!
*Bath time is getting better--you enjoy it as long as you are sitting up!
*The swings and bouncy seats are still not your favorite...you tolerate them, but you don't love them as much as your Big Sister did!
*You celebrated your 1st major holiday--Halloween--you and Chloe were both pumpkins!

I'm looking forward to seeing how much you change over the coming month!  We will soon get celebrate your second holiday--Thanksgiving!  I can't wait!  I love you more than you will ever know!

I don't think he liked being in the basket...what do you think?

Carter's Nursery

I have been meaning to post pictures of Carter's nursery...I am so happy with the way it came out!  I can't wait for him to start sleeping in his crib in his room!  Enjoy!

4 year check up....

Only 2 months late :)  Chloe had her 4 year check up on Wednesday morning.  All is well!  She is in the 85% for height and the 34% for weight (down from last year).  She most definitely is long and lean.  I always worry that she is not eating enough...she certainly is a skinnie minnie!  But, Dr. Roads said she is perfectly healthy!  I think her baby brother will be built the same way!

Because this is her only check up before she starts Kindergarten, she had to have shots..no fun..but, she got over it really quick!  The 2 stickers Dr. Roads gave her certainly helped!  She passed her hearing test and eye exam with flying colors.  She answered every question that Dr. Roads asked perfectly!  When asked to count, she counted to 20 without missing a beat--which is great because she has NEVER done that for me!  I know she knows how to count far beyond 20, but she thinks it is funny not to share it with me :)

I have to say one positive thing is that we have not been to the Doctor in just about 12 months!  Chloe has been healthy as a horse (knock on wood)....Don't get me wrong, we had our share of illness...she was just about sick for 18 months straight after being in daycare...but, her built up immune system NOW makes that tough time worth it!
