Valentine's Day

Friday, February 15, 2013


We had fun celebrating Carter's first Valentine's Day.  We had two playdates with his friends where we played and decorated heart-shaped cookies.  Carter's grandmom came and brought him a heart-shaped balloon which he loves and new jeans which I love!  It was a fun first V-day!

On Saturday Jess came over to capture some pics of 9-month-old Carter doing his favorite things...

Gymboree introduced him to bubbles...he's mesmerized and always tries to touch them!

Pushing his walker everywhere as it plays his "soundtrack for walking"

He loves hitting balls and crawling to get one, even though as soon as he touches it, it rolls further away...

AND...of course his all time favorite thing to do, day or night...

9 months old...

I'm soooooooo happy to have these pictures.  As he becomes more mobile it's so hard for me to take pictures and let's be honest...Jess's pics are amazing!  I LOVE how they capture poses, nothing crazy...just him.
Here are her other pics of Carter:

In the beginning of January we started going to Gymboree on Mondays and Wednesdays.  It has been the best thing for us!  We love it!  First, it gives us something to do other than run errands or go for walks.

And he has new little friends!  I think he's grown from watching the other kids who are his age.  When we first went he wasn't crawling, but I swear from watching the other crawlers he was determined to join in!  Now he crawls up ramps, through tunnels, anywhere...especially if he sets his sights on a ball!  

 And it's so great for me too.  It's so nice to talk to other moms who are going through exactly what we are and share stories and ideas!
And it's fun!  The songs and games are pretty cute too!
