We're Swingin!

Liliana LOVES to crawl up into Carter's swing. This past weekend I went to put Carter down in the swing and Liliana wouldn't get out. So... I did like all mother's would-and asked her to share! LOL!! It was too cute so I had to grab the camera! Here are a few pictures from their "swing" together! Liliana is SO good with her little brother! Carter is getting used to her as well. There are some times I think he rolls his eyes at her when she comes to "see"him and kiss him, play with him, etc. I can't believe it but this week Liliana turns 16 months old and Carter turns 2 months old! It's so crazy how fast time flies.

Sunday night we enjoyed dinner with Jill, Aaron, and Levi. Levi and Liliana were HILARIOUS together! Levi had learned "bellybutton" and Liliana would pull up her shirt (Much to daddy's dislike) and let him show it too her. Now (thanks Levi!) Liliana "looks" for everyone's bellybutton and has also learned the word! She's adding words to the vocabulary DAILY! She's got "Bath, ball, down," and a few other new ones just this week. The other day she called the babysitter by name as well! I'm so excited about this stage in her life. Carter is growing like a weed. He goes back to the dr. for 2 month checkup/vaccines next week. I'm anxious to see how he's growing. He's been eating better, loves to smile, and it's interacting with us more and only I could convince him that 4 AM isn't the best time for breakfast!!!!!!!

Labor Day Laughter

On Labor Day, Kevin and I, Liliana, Carter, and my parents, all ventured out to the Yellow River Game Ranch ! (YES, we totally stole the idea from Jill and Aaron...hope she doesn't mind!). We had a great time. Liliana was running everywhere and giggled every time she fed an animal. Carter enjoyed the visit also--all tucked away in the sling! It was a great day of family fun! Oh...and yes, Kevin tried to get Liliana to "ride the pig"--see the left middle picture.. (which I'm SURE was against the rules!). He did NOT like that at all--but couldn't exactly run away because he was entirely TOO fat to go anywhere. It was quite hilarious!

Say Cheese!

Here's a picture of one of Carter's first smiles. He's smiled for me a few times, but I can never get him to smile while I'm taking a picture. Kevin caught this with his phone last night before bath time. I think it's just too precious!

Hannah came a few weeks ago to take pictures and I've just seen the proofs. They are ADORABLE! Can't wait to share them with you! There's one of Liliana and Carter that I'm in total love with! (And it involved John Deere..imagine that!)
