Something that must be documented!

Jack in the Box!!!!

743 mile car trip

We left at around 8:30 this morning for California. So far we have made 1 1/2 stops, watched parts of about 7 DVDs and had a pretty happy little guy. He finally conked out a few minutes ago and it looks like our ETA for Santa Rosa is about 7pm (depending on traffic and length of stops.) See you all soon!!!!

Carter and Cassidy

We hung out with my friend Erin's family and Carter and Cassidy were so cute in the Barbie Jeep! He even opened and closed the doors for her! What a gentlemann!


These get all the crusties off but don't dry out his face like baby wipes! Love them!!!

A fun game on a boring Saturday morning

All you need is a bowl of shallow water, foam letters and a dishwasher. Don't worry, when he spilled water on the floor I just gave him a paper towel and cleaning became of part of the game too.

How do you eat tortellini?

Big boy booster!

As promised, pictures of our big boy eating at the table!

And playing with his new booster seat on the ground.

A good Sunday!

Last night Carter had a night terror which was awful, but he was SO tired that he ended up sleeping in until 7:00AM and took a 3 hour nap which was awesome! He's been in a great mood today so he has been rewarded with some of his favorites:

Yesterday Carter seemed very interested in a short from the movie Cars so I told Dave that Carter wanted the movie. Then I spent all day teaching Carter to say "Please Daddy" so he wouldn't be able to resist. He bought the movie and Carter is loving it.

Carter hasn't been staying at his table for dinner unless we scoot him over next to us so we decided to invest in a booster seat so he could sit at the table with us (pictures to come) and he has been sitting in it on the floor while watching Cars.

Carter is a cookie monster and has taken a liking to these:

I bought these "veggie straws" from Costco for my lunches and Carter LOVES them!! He wants to eat them all day!

Put them all together and it makes for a great Sunday afternoon!

Lunch date!

My boys met me at work today and swept me off to Subway for a lunch date. We've been trying to eat healthier so we have been going to Subway and eating off their fresh fit menu whenever we want to eat out. We've never thought to get Carter a sandwich until today when we ordered him a kid's fresh fit meal. It was so cute and came in this little re-usable lunch sack with a handle and velcro that Carter enjoyed carrying around. We had so much fun that I've begged Dave and Carter to come rescue me every Friday that I work!

Carter trying his Turkey sub. We had to teach him to hold it with 2 hands but he caught on quick and continued to hold it right the whole time.

The kid's meal comes with apple slices so here he is saying "apples"

He wanted some juice but refused to put down his yummy sandwich

Looks like somebody loves Subway!

It was so fun and I loved seeing my boys in the middle of the day!!
