{Carter}

Carter’s is pretty much the type of kid everybody loves…and I’m not just saying that cause I’m his mom. He’s so laid back, has the funniest personality and such a desire to love people. We are so thankful for the joy Carter has brought to our lives and we thank God each and everyday for trusting us with him. We are so excited to see what God has in store for him and we have no doubt it’s going to be pretty amazing.

I knew from the second I found out I was pregnant that I was having a boy and his name would be Carter. I was so set on it I think my husband was afraid to even challenge or compete with the naming rights (seriously, naming a kid has got to be one of the hardest things to agree on!!). Truthfully, I’m pretty sure I told him before we even conceived that I was naming our next child, since he picked our daughter’s name.  On May 19, 2006, we were ecstatically blessed with his arrival and pretty much jumping on cloud 9. Obviously, it was instant love, but gosh, after 3.5 years the love we have for this little boy has just grown exponentially every single day. Throughout his short little life, people have always commented on how funny and different Carter is, constantly calling referring to him as a “little man”. He had an extensive verbal vocabulary at the age of 1 and could easily engage you in a conversation for hours (and oh how I love listening and talking to him).Plain and simple, I just can’t get enough of him. My face just lights up when I see him, I laugh when I’m around him, and he is the sweetest, and I mean S W E E T E S T little boy ever (okay, yes, I’m sure I’m a little biased). Seriously though, on average he picks me 3 wild flowers a day, so he definitely knows a way to a girls heart. 🙂 **however, i should note, he is already “taken”. feel free to reference his future bride, and their “save the dates” below. aren’t they cute? :)**

He’s on the left kissing his little brother. Nothing like brotherly love! The other picture is his reaction from opening his Christmas present. Note, this is the THIRD time he has received this EXACT same box of legos in the past year. Yes, he’s a LEGO FREEEAK.


Here he is with his girlfriend! They truly do both say they are going to marry each other!!
