Madness Tuesday!

After being sick since last Thursday I am finally today feeling better! I am still on medicine but lucky for me Carter has not shown any signs of getting it! Thankfully I have been able to give him kisses today which I have been trying not to do on his face this past week. This was a rough sickness and for a while I thought I had the flu but got the yucky up the nose test and it came back negative. So.... just an upper resportiory infection for me!
It is only Tuesday and it has been such a crazy week for me since I was out from work last Thursday and Friday. I feel like I will never catch up. Carter and I went to my brother Jacob's football game tonight and he had so much fun watching Uncle Jacob play! Carter LOVES football. Really he just LOVES being outside. He did not however like it when the people in the stands would stomp when we scored. I let him know that he was going to have to get over it being a coaches son and all.

Hope you are all having a great week and get out your fall stuff because October is here!!!!!! YEAH FALL!
PS. Does anyone know why the spell check is no longer an option!!!!

Carter is Five Months Old!

Carter you are 5 months old!

What are you up to these days?

  • You weigh 12 pounds! Slow as a Turtle you are gaining more weight!
  • You are 26 1/2 inches long
  • You are in size 2 diapers and the are only a little big now. Pampers are your favorite
  • I have packed up all your newborn outfits and since you wore them for so long I was very sad to see my favorites go. You are now in 0-3, 3 month, and some smaller 3-6 month outfits!
  • Your eyes are still very blue! Mommy wants them to stay this way but Daddy would like for you to have green eyes. Either way we love looking at them.
  • Still no sign of hair. NONE AT ALL
  • You are sleeping now from about 7:30 or 8:00 at night until 7:15 in the morning when Mommy wakes you up to leave for work. I wake you up and you smile so big when you see me. I change your diaper and put you in your car seat with your outfit for the day in your lap. Mrs. Crystal or Mrs. Ann Marie dress you most days for mommy unless you wake up early and then I dress you. You take two naps 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon. YOU LOVE YOUR SLEEP!
  • You love for me to sing to you. Your favorite song is You are my Sunshine! I don't even have to use the real words sometimes I just sing about we are doing but you love the tune!
  • You are a rolling machine! You sometimes roll of your play mat and on the hard wood floor and make Mommy put you back on your mat by making loud noises at me
  • You are pushing up while on your belly and trying to scoot with your knees. I guess you really want to be mobile. I am ok with waiting on that for a little while.
  • You are an on the go boy! You love to be in the car and outside going places. I think you love shopping!
  • You have started blowing bubbles with your mouth. You get drool everywhere but it is really funny
  • You watch everything that is going on around you including the doggies and TV. You are very intrested in the world around you
  • You babble all the time. You are going to be a talker just like Mommy
  • You have learned how to turn yourself around in your jumparoo and play with all the toys so now you are liking this toy much better and for longer
  • You are still sleeping in your swaddleing blanket and oh how I love it! I know the time is coming when you will no longer stay in it at night. Sometimes you do get out in the middle of the night but I wish you would sleep in it forever. I hope the transition is easy
  • You love to hold on to everything you can get your hands on and most of it all goes in your mouth so I am constantly having to watch that
  • Right now your favorite toys are: Spunky Monkey, chewy blanket, and monkey wubanub
  •  You are a Mommy's Boy! You love your Mommy and it makes me very happy!
Happy 5 Month day CARTER!!!

Carter's fist party outing!

Tonight was my friend Tiffany's little boys THIRD birthday party! This was also Carter's first party ever! YEAH! He had a great time. He was very intrested in all the other kids and got to hang with his friend Delaney! She is 1 week older than Carter and her Mommy Cari and I spend a lot of time going back and forth about what the kids are doing now. When she was born and I went to go see them in the hospital Carter kicked me the whole time I held Delaney. I guess it was love at first KICK! Here we are as you can see he is checking her out but she is not having any of that!

Here is Peyton on his 3rd BIRTHDAY!

Time is flying by so fast with Carter. Tomorrow he will be 5 months old.
Have a great night and GO HORNS!!!!

Monday Madness!

Tonight our friends Lacey and Rodney came over for dinner and to see Carter. We love having people over but these two hold a special place in our hearts so it was super fun. Carter really loves to look at Lacey. I think he likes her blonde hair!!! I meant to take their picture but of course I was busy and I did not think about it. It rained all day again today and Carter did not get to go outside at the sitter's house. I could tell he really wanted to because as soon as we walked out of her house to get in the car he started cooing. He has really started to talk baby talk a lot more recently. He loves to look out the window while he is in the car and just make noises to himself.

Tomorrow I am staying home with him which is a big treat for me except that we have to go to the doctor for weight check. Please say a little prayer for him! Thanks!Have a great TUESDAY!

What a weekend!

Does anyone know why my pictures when I post them are coming out with white on the sides of them? It is killing me

We had a good weekend! Saturday Ryan had to go in to work for a little while and Carter and I did some cleaning. Terry and Crystal came over to watch the Texas Longhorn play a great game and Crystal was able to do some shopping in my scentsy collection. Then Ryan and Carter and I went over to Ryan's sisters house to see Daddy Kieth and Nana!!! We all had a great time.
Sunday I was able to leave Carter in the care of Daddy and Terry to watch the Cowboys game while I went to try on bridesmaids dresses for one of my best friends from highschools wedding in June. Lacey and I have known each other since our Freshman year in highschool and when we graduated from College we moved into an apartment together in Richardson. I love her! The dress is so pretty and I can't wait to lose more baby weight and go and try it on again in November. The rest of the evening was pretty low key. All in all it was a great family weekend.

Carter's next weight appointment is on Tuesday so please be thinking of him then!

Go Horns!

Carter says GO HORNS!!!!! This is his first UT football game of many to watch! Who do you cheer for in college football?


We have now officially made it through a mommy and son sickness together. Carter stated feeling bad on Tuesday and I could see it going down hill from there. By Thursday I took him to the doctor and both of us had fever so Friday we stayed home and got better. Daddy was gone from Wednesday - Friday with football so he missed out on all of the throwing up fun! It was sad to see Carter not feeling well but by today for the most part he is feeling better. I still have a headache but my tummy is feeling much better. I am glad we made it through it together and hopefully we won't both be sick at the same time again!

OH the joys of football season...

Well..... we are back to football season! And by that I mean Ryan is always gone! :( He loves what he does so I try not to give him to hard of a time,however, I will admit some days are just plan harder than others. Before there was Carter I would go hang out with friends or go shopping or just veg out while he was gone but now pretty much it is like being a part time single parent. I know it is hard for him because he will go for almost two straight days without seeing him so again I try my very best not to tell him how much I miss him or how hard it is sometimes without him. BLAH BLAH football season! I love watching it but I love watching it with Ryan.
Hopefully this season will be another great one and we will go deep in the playoffs!(do you like that football lingo hehe)

Carter is loving his new diet of baby food! So far we have tried Banana's and Sweet Potatoes. He is great and pushing the food to the back of his tongue so most of it does stay in! YEAH! Let's all cross our fingers that he gains some weight and when we go to our GI appointment next week they will not need to run any more tests on him. He seems to be teething so I have started giving him some teething tablets. Everyone says how fast they dissolve but I can't seem to get that to happen really fast. They are the little teethers brand. Have any of you tried them?
