Where is the time going?

It feels like yesterday that I was rubbing my tummy waiting to meet the precious life inside of me and now I am chasing around a very happy, busy, precious little boy!! I can't believe that Carter is already 17 months old!! He has changed so much over the last 2 months since his last shunt revision!! He is talking up a storm!! He says; Mama, Dada, Meme, Nana, Allyson, Ginger, Hi, Dog, No, Yumm, Eyes, milk, thanks, OK (I am sure there are more those are just the regulars!) And he really has changed so much developmentally too!! His favorite thing to do lately is climbing. He army crawls to any and everything that is at a taller surface and tries to pull up on it and crawl in it or over it! He also loves to act like he is flying in the air and flapps his arms as Webb whizzes him around the house like an airplane! This is so exciting and new! He has gotten so funny when we change his diaper to that he kicks and slaps so fast and so hard, all the while laughing with all he has. Its crazy to think that about a year ago he wasn't even really moving his legs at all and today he stood(with a little assisstance) at a train table at story time and played. He just continues to amaze everyone around him!! And on a VERY exciting note, he pulled up last week in the bath tub all by himself. We were taking a bath and he was playing with his ABC toys on his tummy when he reached up for the rail, pulled himself to tall Kneel and then to stand without ANY assisstance!! Ofcourse I yelled for Webb to come in there and he did it again!! AMAZING!!!!!!! We also brought a walker with home with us from PT this week to get Carter to practice standing at it and getting used to it!! We should order one this coming week!! Althoughit will be a while before he starts to use it (just the anticipation of using it is exciting!!)
These pics I took the other night sitting on the front porch for dinner and then after dinner let Carter eat some Banana and Chocolate Pudding which he LOVED. He has gotten very into trying to feed him self lately too.
Just wanted to update everyone on what we have been doing lately. We have been having a ton of fun and have had a couple of good Dr. Appt's too! So keep my little guy in your thoughts and prayers that he will continue to strive like he has been doing for the last couple of months!!! (I guess he is playing catch up from the couple of months that his shunt wasn't working!) Go Carter GOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
