What We've Been Up To - By Crosby and Carter

Hey Y'all!  So it feels like it is officially spring here in Texas.  We have been spending a lot of time outside with Mommy and Daddy.  There have been some great trips to the park and walks around the neighborhood.  We are both looking forward to many trips to the pool this summer.  We love all the time that we get to spend together. We are looking forward so springtime visitors!

Sisters - Carter Joy 8m and Crosby Eleanor 2y8m

8 Month Side by Side

Carter Joy

Crosby Eleanor

Carter - 8 Months

I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that Carter is 8 months old!  How on Earth is this time flying by so fast?

No doctor's appointments this month, so no stats on height or weight.  She is GROWING so fast.  Wearing 9 months clothes and size 3 diapers.  

She has 4 total teeth, her two bottom middles and two top middles.  Carter is a great eater, she eats 3 solid meals a day.  Some of her favorite foods: bananas, apple sauce, peas, sweet potatoes, black beans, noodles and cheerios.

Carter is a rolling and drooling machine.  She has started rocking back and forth on all fours a little bit.  Since Crosby brings anything she needs to her, she has very little need for mobility.  I think she's very satisfied staying put. (FOR NOW)

-swinging at the park
-when Crosby roars really loud
-putting everything in my mouth
-FaceTiming with my family
-car rides
-playing at church
-bath time
-my paci and my thumb
-going for walks
-riding in the wagon and stroller
-loud music
-standing at my play table

-waiting to eat
-mommy or daddy out of my eyesight

Carter is one happy little girl.  She is a joy and a blessing in our lives.  We love sharing new things with her.  We love you beyond measure Sweet Carter Bug!

Happy Birthday Daddy! - Love Crosby and Carter

Our daddy had a birthday this past week!  Did you guys know that?  Birthdays are a pretty big deal in our family.  Birthdays = Cake or in daddy's case brownies.  Carter and I wanted to tell everyone a few things we love about our daddy - Mommy helped us with the pictures.

Daddy loves like crazy.  He calls us his girls.  We love when he cuddles with us.

We love his laugh!

We love how strong he is!

We love the way he plays with us and makes us smile.

We love the way he lets us explore on our own.  All the while he is protecting us and making us feel safe.

We love the way he shares new experiences with us!

We love playing games with him!

We love how he helps us!

We love how he can make us laugh!

We absolutely LOVE YOU!  Thank you for being a GOD fearing, loving, caring, amazing daddy and husband.  We are blessed to have you in our lives!
