Update

So I have been given a really hard time with my lack of blogging lately. I know it has been four months since I have blogged last. In my defense for some reason blogging totally intimidates me. Then when I sit down at the computer to upload an image I realize it isn't that hard then I think to myself why did this take me so long to do. Things have been going good for us. Jamie is busy in school at the University of Utah. He just had spring break it was so much fun having him around we were able to get some projects around the house done. Carter is busy as ever. Seriously the kid can not sit still. He is always on the move. He turned nine months old on March 17th. At nine months he is 28.5 inches long and weighs 20 pounds 11 ounces. He has a laugh and seven tooth smile that lights up a room. He loves crawling all over. We have even caught him standing for seconds at a time. He likes to clap his hands together and is learning how to wave good-bye.

My high school friends can attest that I have zero creative skills. But my sister has really done a good job at helping me discover my creative abilities. I have been having so much fun working on Carter's scrapbook.

Here is the most recent page of Carter's scrapbook. I love this one. I normally don't put nearly this much effort into one page, but I saw this idea and copied it from a magazine.
I took this picture today (Sunday) after church. He was so tired he fell asleep sitting up in his crib.

One of Carter's favorite places to play is under the table.

Carter absolutely loves his cousin Jake. Whenever he sees him he starts to laugh. Carter was climbing on Jake like they were wrestling. This is on St. Patricks day.
Enough said!

During Jamie's spring break he wanted to do something for Carter's room, so he free hand drew the sea creatures from Carters bedding. Then we mod podged it onto this magnet frame that we painted white. He worked really hard on it and I think it turned out awesome! Way to go Jamie!



Carter's first time in the pool was at his friend Emmett's birthday party. He loves the pool. We will definitely have to go a lot this summer.
