Happy 2nd Birthday, Carter!

So hard to believe that my baby boy is ...
A. No longer a baby and
B. Turned 2 yesterday (January 30)!

A few pictures from his first birthday - there are 2 different cakes because he had a "family" party and a "friends" party.

Look at those cheeks ... I forgot how chubby they were!

And now for his second birthday ... complete with an "Emmo" cake :)

Carter is just growing by leaps and bounds lately. Every day he comes up with new words, new songs, new things that he understands, and new signs of "maturity" (like walking through the mall with mommy without the stroller and just holding hands ... without darting away!) It's so fun watching him grow and develop ... it seems like it's been a long time since we went through this stage with Audrey.

We thank God for him every day (and for his sister too!)

Happy Birthday Carter! Isn't it amazing the difference between the first and second birthday! It's the difference between a baby and a little boy! He's a great little guy and I'm glad we get to watch him and Audrey grow!...and baby #3!

Yes, he is getting big. Love the Elmo cake! Chantel is now 49" tall at age 6. She really grew from 18" or 19" at birth, they said 18 but a few days later she was 19". That's at least 30" in 6 years!
