My goodness, how these little ones change! Although it's still a rare occurence for Carter to have his eyes open for longer than a 30 minute stretch, when he's awake, he's a happy little guy! I guess it's a good thing our first baby was a harder baby...this first week and a half has seemed super easy in comparison...then again, it could just be because my wonderful mother and sister Melanie have spent the last 5 days with us! Carter and Jemma have greatly appreciated their company too.

Just one example of how fun it is to have company: right after Jemma's bath the other night, Aunt Melanie let Jemma try on a whole bunch of her shirts...they fit more like dresses, but Jemma LOVED it! She kept saying, "I'm pretty!" and wanting us to turn on music so she could dance around like a little princess! She's ALL GIRL...unless she's wrestling with her daddy.
WHAT A GREAT BIG SISTER!
Jemma really wanted to hold Carter the other night, but insisted on wearing the oven mits...who knows!
