Fun day with family and friends!

Today Carter and I got to hang out with one of my best friends Kambrie! I brought my camera and still forgot to take a picture of her and Carter so here is one from a shower I had. I guess that counts right? Then we went to go and see my mom (Grandma Neice) and Carter was able to show off his new trick. He has found his feet! I really never knew how excited things like this would be to me!
If you have never heard of it here is a little about it! It is a flameless candle that uses a light bulb to burn the wax. You can replace the wax and still use it in another candle to trade out scents. You can order directly from my scentsy website and never even have to talk to me. This will be helpful for all your out of towners! You can also have a party and get free things! Let me know if you have any questions :)

Blog Hop! Fav Kid Photos

MckLinky Blog Hop

This week on the blog hop it your favorite kid photos of your kids! This is exciting for me and in a way helpful too! I had to download all the pics from my camera and my phone to make the blog hop so it was productive. Carter is now 3 months 1 week old also known as 14 weeks and is such a wonderful baby. Ryan says God gives you the first one and makes them a great baby to get you to have more. My friend Tiffany would disagree with that but I am thinking he might be on to something there. Since Carter has turned 3 months I really feel like his personality is starting to come out. He likes to play with his toys now and can entertain himself for a pretty long time. He has begun to love his swing, his tummy time mat and his bouncy chair. Just this weekend we put together his exersaucer and while we laughed our heads off at the fact that he still is to small for it he did stay in it for about 15 min. I put in a picture so you can enjoy a good laugh. I am not sure when he will grow into it but I will just keep trying. I hope you enjoy the pictures of Carter

Blog Hop- Things you don't know

This week on Blog hop we are supposed to put up three things that you don't know about me! Join in the fun and if you do let me know so I can check it out!

1. I have two little brothers that I adore that are 15 and 17 years younger than me!
Jacob 12 and Tyler 10

2.I am obsessed with Tori Spelling! I love her and find so much of myself in her sometimes. I own her books and her Tori and Dean and faithfully watch it every Tuesday night! Bet you never thought that :)

3. I hate getting gas for my car! I actually ran out of gas on my first date with my husband because I HATE putting gas in my car. Little did he know when he had to bring me gas on the side of the freeway that he should have run far far away from me then. But he is the best and that is now his job!

12 weeks

Where have the past 12 weeks gone? Carter is on his way to 3 months on the 20th and I can not believe it. Today my mom and I went to have his weight checked AGAIN. He is 9.15 ounces. He went from 9.11 to 9.15 in one week. She said she thinks this formula is the key to his tummy issues and not wanting to eat a lot at one time so hopefully we will keep this up and he will be on his way to gaining much needed weight. However, to me he looks fine and healthy!!!!!

I am doing well since the gallbladder issue. Ryan took very good care of me while I was recovering and I am not taking pain medicine anymore. Mainly because I hate how loopy it makes me feel. One week from today Carter will be going to visit his Daddy Keith and Nana!!!!!!!! He can not wait! (and neither can mommy and daddy) Even though we will miss him for the 2 days he is gone :)

All is well....

I am having a nice recovery from the gallbladder surgery and I am hoping to be up and feeling much better tomorrow morning! Carter has an appointment at 11am so I will update you more then. Just wanted to check in!

Blog hop- Leave a message :)

I am doing this blog hop! Come join in with me! If you are visiting my blog let me know what you think. This week, on TUESDAY, 7/7/09, the theme is A FAVORITE PHOTOGRAPH. Post up one of your favorite photographs and a caption that tells the audience about it. Here is a sample:

Dr. Visit check up

We went back for our 2 week check up Monday to see if Carter had gained weight. He had gone from 9.3 to 9.11 and a half ( I must include the half) My amazing Doctor who I love decide to up his meds to a full pill and switch his formula to something that is eaiser for him to digest blah blah language to me I just want my poor baby to be able to eat without being in pain and gain so weight! The formula smells really bad. Worse than the soy we have already been using. Sparing you details just let me say it moves right through him! BUT he seems to be having a little bit of an easier time eating so YEAH! Maybe we have found out how to fatten up our boy! We will go back in and have another visit next Monday and see where we are at.

Carter is hardly ever napping during the day but sleeping about 9-10 hours at night so I guess that is ok. All you mommy's out there what do you think?

We had a wonderful July 4th at Ryan's family lakehouse this weekend and Carter got in his first 4th of July outfit that my Grandmother bought for him. I am uploading the pictures tomorrow and can't wait for you all to see him.

I hope everyone had a great July 4th!!!
