My Baby is One

I can't believe that a whole year has come and gone since Carter was born. We celebrated his birthday on June 19th and it was so fun! We just spent the day doing things that he loves to do. We took pics to show what a big boy he's become! I haven't downloaded pics of his party yet but here are the ones of us playing outside that day. I also included pics that we took for Paul for Father's day. It was a great to celebrate what Paul means to all of us. He's literally the perfect husband and dad. We love him so much! Keep checking in for pics of Carter's party!

Sweet Baby Boy! This was the picture he gave to Paul for Father's day.

He really is this happy ALL the time! We spent lots of time outside on his birthday cuz he LOVES it!

In a Nutshell

Wow, May really must have been a crazy month because it's been forever since I posted and I'm feeling out of the loop! To start with, Kate and Lizzie started their first semester of preschool together. This is Kate's fourth time but it's the first time they've ever gotten to do it together and Lizzie's very first time. I have actually liked the time with just Carter and I. It's helped me regain a little sanity and free time. Then we celebrated Kate's fifth birthday on the 21st and had a blast! She was so excited to turn five cuz she knows that this is the year that she starts school and gets to start a lot of new things. She had a birthday party with just the family and then she had a birthday party with her friends for the very first time and although I was a little nervous about it, it was SO fun and I loved it! The night before her party she was playing around in our bedroom and hit her eye on the corner of the windowsill and got a MAJOR black eye. She was so distraught and in a fit of tears turned to us and said, "I can't have my party tomorrow! I don't want my friends to see me like this cuz they will all freak out!" I was trying so hard not to laugh because it was so cute and it was the first time that I had ever seen her concerned about her vanity. Of course by morning she was over it and we had a High School Musical Birthday party that was one to remember! What a fun month!
