Happy 3rd Birthday Captain Carter

Wow, it is hard to believe that our sweet little Carter is already turning three! I can remember the day we brought him home from the hospital like it was yesterday! He was 6 lbs 1 oz the day we left the hospital and he had a head full of dark-black-soft-as-feathers hair that I just couldn't keep my hands off of. He was wearing the sweetest little white one-piece outfit with the tiniest little blue stars. Oh, that drive on 465 was the slowest and longest drive of my life....I was so nervous as Matt passed all the semi's that I kept making him drive well below the posted speed. And at dinner that night I just sat there and cried because I was so worried that I would not be able to take care of something so tiny and so completely dependent.

It funny how things have changed....
Now our sweet baby is three and reminds me daily that "I a big boy mom" as he attempts to do EVERYTHING on his own and usually after a couple attempts realizes that there are still some things he needs his momma for.

That same tiny baby is now nearly 30lbs and over 38 inches tall and can be found daily standing on our couch with his arms stretched out wide screaming "I'm Buuuzzzz Lightyear" followed by a nice little launch straight to the ground!

Carter loves to go hiking and told Matt the other day he wants to go "Mike 'n biking" which we discovered he means Mountain Biking! He loves the great outdoors and anything adventurous.

He loves music and dancing and making people smile. He loves books and cars and praying to God. He loves riding his bike and building forts and helping out around the house. He loves his momma and his daddy and yet his favorite people are his Nana's and his Papa(w)'s! He loves khaki pants and riding in the Bronco and loves nothing better than helping in the garden. He loves being loud, running fast, and digging for worms. He loves pirates and "deck shoes" and anything with wheels. He is ALL BOY, and I love it!

I love that he stills likes to sit on my lap and read. I love that he loves doing crafts and making cookies. I love that he stills love to be rocked after his bath and sang to before bedtime. I love that he is compassionate, caring, and crazy at times. I love when he comes up to me and says "mom, I love you" just completely out of the blue. I love that on the days when I head to work he says "mom, go take care of people" and he means it! I love when he says "this is the best (fill in the blank) in the whole word" meaning to say world! Most of all I love that he is still my sweet little baby!

Happy 3rd Birthday Captain Carter

Momma loves you more than words can say.
