Happy 1/2 Birthday!

Carter is 6 months old today!! Poor thing had his 6 month check-up this morning which meant 5 stabs in his thigh. :( It would have normally been 4 but we went ahead & got his first of 2 flu shots as well. With that pig flu & regular flu going around, I wanted him to go ahead & get started on that. As far as his stats go, he has grown 2 inches from his 4 mo. check-up to 28" which is in the 90th percentile & he weighs a little over 19 lbs now which is around the 80th percentile. His head circumference has grown an inch & is now off the charts at 18.75 inches!!! He's going to have a big 'ole head like his Daddy. :) The doc said that normally a big head means a big body & he is def. a big boy! Everything else checked out great & he doesn't go back until 9 months except for his 2nd part of the flu shot in 4-6 wks. We talked all about food & he basically said we can feed him any of the baby foods, 1st, 2nd or 3rd but he said to steer clear of the 2nd food meats...they're supposedly terrible...and no desserts since they are just full of sugar & fats. He said we can probably start any table foods that he can handle like mashed potatoes, sweet potates (which he loves), etc. In about a month or so we can offer him some cheerios and then just go from there. So all of that will be fun! He has been teething for awhile now but no pearly whites yet. The doc also said that it looks like they are still pretty far off so who knows when one will finally come in. It is amazing how quickly they change from one day to the next. We have been so blessed with such a precious child over the past 6 months & look forward to all the fun times ahead!!

Feel free to check out his growth chart on and put in my email address ( & the password is Carter330.

Ebay addict!

I just won this off ebay for Carter man & I am SUPER excited about it!!! He loves this thing! Everytime I go in to pick him up at MDO he is in it just bouncing away so I figured I would get him one. He already has an exersaucer that he really likes but this thing he can really move in plus it is good exercise for those chunky little legs. :) Everywhere is sold out of them or at least online except Amazon which had it for $199!!! I won it for $51 (I whipped in a last min. bid & I'm sure ticked someone off) & it is only $8.59 to ship. All the other ones that were on there were $25 or more to ship so I think I got a great deal. I can't wait til it gets here! Too bad it is coming from NY but hopefully it won't take too long. Carter is getting baptized this w/e so this can be his little present from mommy. :)

Carter's 1st beach trip!!!

**FINALLY** getting these up! Football season has already kept us VERY busy! :)

We went to Destin with Justin's Dad, stepmom, sister, brother-in-law & our niece for a long w/e over my birthday w/e on Aug. 14. It was Carter's first trip in the car & he was such a good boy! He napped most of the way down & back...we pretty much tried to feed him just before we left so we wouldn't have to stop to do that on the way. He loved the water...especially the pool & his fun starfish float...

Hadley giving Carter a kiss!
Daddy & Carter playing around in the pool.

These pics were so sweet of them playing next to each other on their floats.
Aww they were holding hands...precious little cousins!
Family pic out to dinner...our camera started acting up so it's a bit blurry & Carter looks like he just saw a ghost. :)
Finally out on the beach & in the ocean! Tropical storm Claudette decided to randomly appear out of the Gulf the 2nd day we got there, so we didn't have many nice sunny days but just enough for us to still get out & enjoy it!

His beach hat was a little big but it served its purpose.

We love the beach!!
