Today's is Carter's 6 month birthday...he's half a year old!! Where did time go..... I can't believe it has been 1/2 a year since God blessed us with the second miracle of our life! As I reflect on the past 6 months, I realize how much our life as a family has changed. When we first brought Carter home, I was terrified (No lies!). I had no idea how we would handle life with two small children, so close in age. But I also knew that God gives you what he knows you can handle. As the months have gone by, I cannot imagine life without my kids..both of them. Carter just said "Mama" for the first time (YIPEEE!!). I was so excited to hear this. I know that he doesn't understand who he's talking to, but still..it's so nice to hear those words! :) He's getting so big and almost crawling-he can scoot backwards really well-if only he could figure out the frontward motion thing! Liliana is 20 months old this week as well. Again, I can't believe my baby is almost 2 years old!!! We went with the youth on a trip last night, and as some of the youth were talking in the backseat...all I could think was...my kids are going to be "them" so quickly...
For New Year's we went to Pigeon Forge, TN with Grandma and Grandpa (Gincy's parents). We had a great time, but the most fun was had at the Ripley's Aquarium. Liliana LOVED the fish, although she didn't enjoy trying to touch them. :) We had a great time watching the fish and watching the kids' fascination with them! They say that "what you're doing on New Year's, You'll do all year long">....so that's the plan ...be on vacation all year ! hehe..I wish!
When we were at Kevin's parents for Christmas, we also had Carter's Christening. We are very blessed to have Kevin's dad to this for us. Carter's cousins, Addison and Wesley Jr., were also christened the same day. It was a great, special day to spend with friends and family!
Here are some pictures from Christmas with Kevin's side of the family. We had a blast spending the weekend with them. Liliana and Carter (as well as cousin's Addison and Wesley Jr.) were very excited about the wagon from Aunt Michelle and Uncle Rob. They each took turns riding around the house in it! I can't wait till this spring when we can go out for walks with it! :)
Well, I realize that it's Mid January, but I promised to keep you up to date! :) Below are some pictures from Christmas morning!
Yes, I realize that we spoil our children...but isn't that what they are for. (Disclaimer...this is ALL our Christmas presents for the entire family..their stuff only made up a small part of it!)
