Look at me!

I'm sooo BIG!!

From sitting, to standing! Over the past week, Carter has been trying his hand at pulling himself up. He has gotten so good that he feels confident enough to let go, turn and smile at whoever is there to watch...not so fast, the smile is usually followed by a quick fall to the floor. It is so neat to watch him learn new things. He just tries so hard and then when he finally gets it he just smiles and gets all excited. And of course, Matt and I cheer every time! Yea, Carter!!

Hangin' out and having fun!

"Hey Ladies"
Here are just a few pictures of Carter hangin' around the house! Enjoy!

Well, this isn't at the house, it's a park, but he is "hanging" out just the same. He absolutely loves to swing!

Carter has become quite the mover over the past couple weeks. The other day I caught him climbing through the bottom of his Exersaucer. I kept trying to move him away from it because I didn't want him to get hurt but he would just keep going back over to it until finally he made it through to the other side! He has continued to perform this trick daily and even did a show at Nana and Papaw's house in their Exersaucer!

Daddy and Carter reading Carter's favorite book You're My Little Love Bug! OK, so I really think that he just likes the lights and music that go along with the book, but I love the story, so we will just call it our favorite!

If we cannot seem to find little Carter anywhere we just check under all the end tables, it is his favorite place to crawl. JK he is never out of sight, but he does love those tables!

Carter has mastered the skill of sitting and so he has moved on to conquer the sippy cup!

Carter eating at the highchair for the very 1st time. He likes the chair, hates the bib, loves the food, but I love that little smile even more!

6 months old

Can you believe that Carter is already six months old? Where does all that time go? Well, for Carter the time has been spent learning to sit, army crawl, and grab at everything in sight. He loves grabbing for peoples faces, jewelry and hair! He is also the first to point out every little speck of lint on the carpet! Along with all his new skills, Carter continues to be such a happy baby. He laughs all the time and has a smile that is just to die for!

At his 6 mo. appointment Carter was 15 lbs 11 oz. and 27 in. long. He is long and lean! Above is a picture of Carter showing off his rolls and his new found love of playing with his toes!

All those rolls didn't come from nowhere. Carter has a love for peas, bananas, and sweet potatoes. It is so fun watching him get all excited at meal time. Just the sight of the food jar is enough to get his legs kicking and put a smile on his face!

Carter's 1st Haircut!

The before picture!
So, Carter's hair was beginning to look a little like the Donald, a nice comb over, or maybe even a baby toupee. It was definitely time for a haircut. I had told myself I wouldn't cut it until his birthday, but I settled for his 1/2 birthday instead. So, at 6 mo. Carter got his very 1st big boy haircut by his Nana Wynberry.

Here we are getting ready for the big cut. Smock in place, hair wet, one lone curl down the forehead, a living room full of eager spectators, and more camera's than the paparazzi.

And with one quick snip it was off. and yes, I cried.

The after picture! What a big boy!
