It's been so long. He's grown so much.

I know it has been a long time and I have been a lazy blogger. Things have been busy around here. We had such a great Halloween. Carter was such a cute little pumpkin (thanks Emily for letting us borrow the costume). I love Halloween and fall time in general. It was fun to watch all the leaves change colors. I am not to excited for the snow however. Carter is growing up so much. He changes everyday. He will be five months old on the 17th! He has more tricks now. He loves to blow bubbles with his lips. Roll over both directions. He is such a people watcher. He loves playing with his toys. I put Carter in the jumper one day and he just kind of swung around in it. Then the next time I put him in it and he totally remembered how it worked and jumped up and down. He loves it now. I can't believe how fast he got the hang of it. We are just busy working and enjoying our family time when we have some. Enjoy the pictures. My disclaimer for the video of Carter doing his business. I thought it definitely is one of those things that the parents only think is funny. But Jamie said no it is hilarious you need to put it on. So sorry if you think it is a bit strange. Not my fault.

Such a happy kid!

My boys!

Ok this is pretty funny. Carter learned how to roll over awhile back. I would go into check on him during his nap time and this is what I would find. He always got stuck on his tummy and didn't know how to get back. He just recently learned how to roll from his stomach to his back.

Halloween party and Emily's (thanks em that was fun)

One evening Carter was being fussy and I wanted to watch my show "The Office". So, Jamie set him on the ottoman in front of the TV and he was quiet and watched the show with me.

How can you not smile. Look at that face.

You're pooping video makes me feel better about my breastfeeding story... thanks! Talk about cute MJ. Call me crazy but I think he looks like Jake, who I always thought was a spiting image of Dave. There must be more Hyde there than I realized.
