String of Thoughts

Carter is a busy boy. And he thinks he's funny. He is funny. A crack up...yet all in body language and expression. He's a boy of few words so far, yet he has major comprehension. He handed me the tv remote this morning with one battery that he'd pulled out. I asked him where the other one was and told him to go get it. He grinned at me, walked away, and then came back with the battery. Funny kid. He does say a few words here and there, just not tons. He started walking (how bad is it that I never recorded this...) at about 15 1/2 months. I am still so thankful that I was kind of getting around before he was on his feet! Although he still toddles a bit, he is all over the place and even races the house with his brothers. As of this moment, he is working on 4 molars and all of his eye teeth. 2 of the molars have started to break the skin. It's made him crabby at times, but he is so much happier than I think I would be in that situation! He is just SUCH a laid back boy. Love him so.

Caden seems as old as Carson these days... aside from the education side maybe. Seriously, they seem so close in age. They are always up to something and acting out some sort of elaborate story...though he still loves sleeping and nap time and all that involves cuddling and holding on to whoever is closest. He's the sweetest cuddle-bug. Right now Carson and Caden are having a "concert" in Carson's room.

Carson keeps asking when he and Caden can have bunk beds... I don't know if this will happen or not... I suppose it depends on where we live when the next baby comes along... speaking of which, we actually made it past our goal of distance between children for once!! WOOT! :) Don't hyperventilate... I'm not announcing anything... but it's been the topic of conversation for Carson lately... that and "when I'm married..." conversations. That boy is a romantic all the way. Today when he asked me about the bunk beds, I asked him if he wanted us to have another baby, and he immediately said yes. I asked if he wanted a brother or sister, and he said both. You want twins? I asked him, and he said yep! That would be AWESOME! (Hear that, Daddy??) Then he proceeded to tell me, "When I'm married, I'm gonna have twins TWICE! Boys and girls." Way to plan that out, buddy. The other day, he said, "Mommy, when I'm married, will you teach me how to drive?" I suppose if he wants to wait to drive until he's 30 (because that's when he's getting married), that would be fine with me! :) He also told me that when he gets married, I can come visit him at his house. Nice to know.

A Christmas Update

Picture Overload Coming. :)

We had Christmas at home this year because of my accident. We had originally planned to spend the holidays with some of Cary's family in Houston, but since I'm really just now walking on my own (albeit still in a walking boot), it just wasn't in the cards. We missed getting to see everyone, but it was nice to be home. That hasn't happened very often for Christmas. We had a Christmas Eve service at our church, and spent Christmas Eve evening at our house. It was laid back, and normal, and I loved it! :) My favorite part of Christmas was having the boys wake up here to have Christmas at our house and breakfast together. The boys had more presents than they knew what to do with, I think, but Carson and Caden kept up with it all and were super excited over everything they opened. It didn't matter if it was an awesome new toy or underpants, they were thrilled! :) Carter was just happy to be here. He opened a few things and messed with the toys in their packages and drank his milk, while everything happened around him. :) After that, we went to my Mom and Dad's for lunch/brunch and had Christmas with them. Then that evening we went to Grandma Lola's house for Christmas with my Dad's side of the family. It was a great day, and we were pooped by the end! :) This morning, Carson wanted to know if it was going to be Christmas tomorrow. I told him that Christmas was over, but that it would come again next year, and he got so excited! It's good to know that it made an impression. :)

Now for pictures...

Discovering stockings... Carson and Caden's super cool pjs are from DeeDee & Papa Tom....they even have capes!

Both of the boys got new underpants in their stockings, and Caden has since potty trained himself! Woo-hoo!!! :)

I love this tid *(Caden doesn't say the hard C sound at the beginning of words...so anything starting with a hard C is said with a T... Tarson, Taden and Tarter.... )

So, if any of you blog friends have boys, these playskool *I believe* helmet toys are the coolest! The boys love them, and they are by far the favorite new thing at our house... tied only with the super cool costumes they received from DeeDee & Papa Tom as well... seriously, coolest costumes.... I'll have to remember to pull out my camera when the boys are in one of their many get-ups. :)

Carter already has his cheesy camera grin down.... I didn't even ask him to smile, silly boy. :)

"hugs for brothers!" - this usually ends with them hugging each other so tightly that they fall over, at which time the wrestling match begins.

Once again, cheesy grin....
