I’m a week behind here since last week was so crazy but I wanted to blog these photos I took of Carter for his 4th Birthday. I can’t believe my little 6 pound peanut is now a lean and tall dude who often gets mistaken for a 6 year old.
It’s been a year of change and adjustment for him as he became a big brother in October, but he’s taken it in stride and has learned to love Reed.
It amazes me how much he’s changed in just two years.
He will actually pose for photos with a forced “cheese” smile if bribed now.
He’s boisterous but shy when he meets new people. I actually love it when he’s shy because it’s the only time he’s quiet.
He’s got such a great imagination and it’s always fun to play pretend with him.
He is worshiped by his baby brother and is getting better about sharing his toys and playing with him.
He still calls his butt his bunt, headphones are hegaphones, and fruit loops are fruit lips. I love these things about him and refuse to correct him because I think it’s cute.
What I love the most about him is that he’s not too big that he can’t snuggle with me, crawl up and sit on my lap and he still loves hugs and kisses from his Mom.
Cheesy smiles aside, I think he’s pretty awesome and am thankful every single day for having him in my life. He’s the first, the one that made me a Mom, and the one who taught me patience and unconditional love. Happy Birthday big boy!
