Saturday was Carter’s birthday and he turned the big ONE!! I can’t believe it! It’s been a whole year of fun and lot’s of changes! It’s even amazing how much HE has changed in just this one year, I can’t imagine what the next year is going to be like!
Here’s a little photo history of the past year!
Months 1 -12!
So here is a little 12 month update for Carter:
Likes: music, dancing, all his toys, “cow” (his sleep toy), all the food, going new places, Rocky, watching dogs play, opening and closing things, walking (!), taking baths, cell phones
Dislikes: being in the car too long, when new people try to hold him
Sleeps: through the night and usually wakes up at 6:15, no matter what time he went to bed. Takes two naps during the day.
Eats: everything we give him and bottles! We have cut from 5 to 4 bottles to slowly transition off the bottles.
Carter smiles whenever a new person enters the room and when people talk to him at the grocery store. He is “talking” all the time but so far only says “mama” and a word we think is for Rocky which is “uggy” (maybe trying to say Rocky and doggy together?). He loves being in the kitchen and playing with all his kitchen toys the most! Carter thinks that now that he can walk, he can also walk down the stairs… he will stand at the top and hold your hand and try to walk down. We are trying to teach him to crawl down backwards but really we just keep the baby gates closed all the time! Carter absolutely loves music and sometimes I will turn around and he will be dancing in his high chair while eating his snack! He also loves banging things to make a beat! He is also getting into anything and everything and loves pulling out all the baskets and seeing whats inside.
Carter has grown so much from a little 4 1/2 pound guy to a now 20 pound guy! He can walk by himself but does like to walk holding hands, too!
Happy Birthday Carter!!
