The Chunk--Happy 4 Months

I think I have the biggest baby ever!  Carter recently had his 4 month check up.  At that apt, we found out that he weighed 17lbs 13oz (93%) and 27 inches long (97%)!  He is built so different than his sister...she was long, but very skinny...not the case four our sweet Carter Boy!  Current things that keep it exciting with Carter are: laughing out loud, lots of smiling, enjoying time playing with toys on his playmat and WATCHING TV (this is his all time favorite thing)!  Dr. Roads told us that we need to limit the TV watching...but, it is hard because he zones in on the TV anytime he gets within 100 feet of one! 

Carter is super close to rolling over...hoping this happens soon, but I think he chunky thighs are hindering him!  We have moved up to size 3 diapers...even though these are a tad bit tight already! 

Beyond just plain 'ole formula, he is now eating cereal at night with a little bit of apple juice mixed in!  We are looking forward to moving on to green veggies this next month! 

Finally, on the sleep front, we are still pretty much getting a full nights sleep.  Carter lays down around 730 or so after his big 7 oz bottle and he generally wakes up between 445 and 545 (not the most exciting thing)!

We are lovin' our sweet chunky boy!  He is the most content and happy baby I have ever been around!  Here's a few pics from the last few weeks!
Waiting for our favorite Dr!

Yum! 1st time eating cereal!

My precious baby girl.

There are just not enough words to describe my love for this 35 lb little girl. 

Chloe, you are growing up so fast.  I wish everyday that I could push a pause button.  In just 6 short months, you will be heading off to Kindergarten.  Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes.  I truly can't believe how fast it has gone.  I'm looking forward to the wonderful milestones to come...but I just can't help but be sad to think about how fast we got here.

You are such a sweet and kind hearted little lady.  I have a feeling you will be a people pleaser (just like your Momma)!  You are constantly complementing everyone around you!  I hope that this quality always stays with you.  You are the best big have transitioned into this role flawlessly.  I can't wait to see how you and your brother interact once he gets a tad bigger...I have a feeling you are going to be the first in line to teach him all he needs to know! 

You love to are semi obsessed with cheerleaders--this makes my heart swell as my secret hope for you is that you are the precious little dancer I never was.  Your favorite thing to do is COLOR.  I think you would do this 24 hours a day if I let love to do crafts / art at school.  You always least since you have been old enough to hold a crayon :)

Some of the things that come out of your mouth are never cease to amaze me with your thoughts and millions of questions. You are constantly asking about things...I know this is because you thirst for knowledge and for that I'm thankful.

You are so sincere and loving.  Chloe, I can already see how sweet of a person you are going to be.  I hope you always stay this way!  I love you so much!

Will you be my Valentine?

Luckily, I don't have to ask anyone this anymore.  In all honestly, it has been 12 1/2 years since I have had to worry whether or not I had one!  I'm one lucky girl...especially since I can now say I have 3 sweet Valentines to call my own!  What a weekend we had.  Friday started off with a sweet surprise---when Casey came into the office, she told me I had to leave work at 3pm and couldn't ask any questions.  Of course, I knew that Blake had something up his sleeve (as he is so good at sweet surprises).  I did ask one question--what about the kids--Casey quickly informed me that everything was taken care of--Yay!  That was good enough for me :)  Blake and I headed to Green Hills to watch a movie and eat at F. Scotts!  We had a great time!  I was so happy to have some much needed one-on-one time!  The rest of the weekend was spent laying low with a late night trip (with kids in pjs) to Khols on Saturday night!  Chloe had her class party today, which she thoroughly enjoyed!  And I woke up this morning to 5 sweet handwritten cards from Blake (well, and Chloe, Carter, and Riley as well)!  I hope your V-Day was equally as sweet!
Watching Mommy get ready this AM!
