Carter slept for about 8 hours last night! It was weird waking up to an alarm!

Carter is becoming more aware of his tongue!

Blessings of all sorts

So much has happened since our last real blog and we haven't had a chance to write about it.

He's officially 2 months old (and then some) and at his doctor appointment on the 9th he weighed 10 lbs 6 oz and was 22 1/2 inches long. He is definitely growing! He got his shots and I had to leave the room. Luckily Dave was there so I was able to. According to the doctor Carter is very strong and is very physically advanced for his age. She was impressed that he is already starting to roll over when the norm is about 4 months. He slept for 7 hours straight last night and has been sleeping better most nights. He loves to play during the day and has his favorite toys like Ferguson the sock monster. He smiles a lot but we are still waiting on an actual giggle which could happen at any time.

The big news is that Carter was blessed on Father's day. It was an amazing blessing and we were so happy to have family and friends there. We are thankful to everyone that showed up and helped to make it a memorable and very special experience. We weren't able to get any pictures of just him in hs cute outfit when he was happy so we apologize for the face in this shot but hey, it's reality people... He was very well behaved during the blessing and the remainder of church so we don't need to capture it on film.

3 years and 2 months!!!

Wednesday was our 3 year anniversary! Hooray! We took Carter to Wednesday night market and had a great time together. It has been the best 3 years of my life.

Yes Carter is in there. He fell asleep as we walked around downtown.

Tomorrow Carter will be 2 months old! I cannot believe he is already 2 months! He is growing fast and getting super strong. He will be standing before we know it. Here are some things that have come with his 2 month birthday:

smiles! He has been smiling a lot and reacting to us more.

    Caught in a half smile

sticking out his tongue

sleeping in his bassinet and for good chunks of time

growing out of some newborn clothes

making more sounds

looking at himself in the mirror and making faces

just being really cute

In other news:

I cut my hair and I feel so much more like myself. It's great. Dave signed up for orientation at the end of this month so we will be taking a trip to Utah. It will be interesting to fly there with Carter and for Dave and I to take our first flight together.
