Carter turned ONE YEAR OLD on May 14th.
It is INSANE how quickly time goes by. I seriously feel like he was a brand new baby just a month or two ago.
We feel so blessed to have this little guy in our family. He is ALL BOY and very nicely balances out the girly stuff in the family.
His favorite toy is...a ball. (The rubber bouncy ones are best if he's playing in the kitchen, otherwise any ball will do. He LOVES to kick and throw them around.)
His favorite foods are "ba-na-na-na-nas", dried mangoes, string cheese, grapes, ham, chicken, beans (like kidney, pinto, etc. kinda beans) yogurt and eggo waffles.
He can say "bye-bye", "baba", "dada", "ball" (he pronounces it "baw"), "mama", "papa" (just learned that one a day or two ago when Brandon's parents were here visiting) and "uh-oh" (pronounced uh-uh, but with the right intonations).
He is just like Jemma with the walking thing...he is totally capable, but not quite ready to take off...although, he did take a few steps on his birthday and today!
Anyway, here's a little video of his birthday festivities. :) It''s a little uneventful...we missed his afternoon nap cuz we went to the zoo, so he's a little on the tired side I think. It's like 3.5 minutes long...we were SHOCKED that he didn't eat/mawl his cupcake...we may never have a child that does the whole "mash the cake up and make a HUGE mess" thing on their birthday.
We sure love this little guy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARTER!
