Carter's First Bump

Those babies are made of rubber I swear. I tried to get a picture, but it healed too quickly.

Carter had two bumps this week.

Monday I dropped him and fell on top of him. I got my foot tangled in a cord that ran behind the nightstand and under the bed. No idea how that happened. I had just picked him up from his nap and we fell right to the floor. I went to call the doctor, and as I was trying to find the number he became quiet. I realized while I was on hold that he had found a magazine and shoved it in his mouth. I pulled it out just as the nurse answered the phone. He screamed and screamed until I gave it back to him. I found his plug and he was as good as new. No bruise on his head, no damage. My knees are still very badly bruised. I had to find a new way to pray until this heals.

Wednesday he was sitting on the floor playing with a toy. He is not very steady on his bum. He falls over very slowly and hasn't figured out how to stop yet. He fell forward and hit his head on the leg of his girlfriend Lydia's bouncer. He then thrashed around a bit before anyone was able to grab him and sit him back up. He got a nice goose-egg on the side of his head and a rug burn on his forehead. He screamed and screamed reaching for the toy he was playing with. After he had it back he was fine. The next day, any signs of injury were gone. Go figure.

Vancouver Temple

Carter's first overnight - and weekend - without mom.

David and I went to the Vancouver Temple open house. We had a nice weekend, babyless. Carter spent 4 days with grandma. He had a super fun weekend with family that stopped by to visit.

Carter's First Campout

We went to Rock Island (Near Wenatchee) for Aunt Arlene's 50th birthday party. Carter had his first campout.

In the yard

Baby Carter now has two teeth, and is eating mushy solids now. He is quite the listener. He is constantly watching and observing. He would much rather sit and watch you than grab at you and sit in your lap. Here are some pictures from him in the yard while I prepared the garden beds where his baby food will grow.

You can guess how that ended up.

Just like Daddy

I have started coordinating Carter's clothes with dad. My friend Dawn gave us the baby bow-tie.

David coordinated this all by his self though. I cannot take credit for that.

First Tooth

It snuck up on us. Carter cut his first tooth last week - on the 3rd. Grandma found it. I may not have know he had one yet if she hadn't have been poking around in there. We feel in there often, but apparently not often enough. He wasn't super fussy, no fever, no problems. Let's hope they all come in that way.

Off we go

Carter loves to walk his dogs. He can be super fussy - but as soon as he gets out the door in that stroller, he quiets right up.
