So It has been over 3 months since my last blog post- YIKES!!! Well a combination of no motivation, busy with the holidays and exhaustion with this pregnancy are to blame :) So I am going to try to catch up here. I am sure I will find more pics that I want to include so I may add them later and I know I will want to do a Phone dump of pics too, so bare with me.

Well the last three months have been so much fun with Carter. He is growing and changing so much every day. He is talking SOOO much now. We even had a speech evaluation in October requested by his teacher that showed a very minimal delay(no need for speech therapy at this time) YAY!!

Here are some Fall pics I took of Carter. I had been wanting to take some at a Cotton Field and found the perfect one. These remind me so much of my Pinky!! LOVE THEM!!

20Weeks with Cohen!! LOVE my boys!!

One afternoon after picking Carter up from school we headed to the Priddy Farms Pumpkin Patch. He had so much fun. We have made this a tradition and have been here every year since he was born. In fact I remember nursing him in the middle of the pumpkin patch the first year :) Gosh how things have changed.

We spent Halloweeen at the Wollneys and had fun Decorating cookies, eating and playing with our cousins!!! and I got this AWESOME pic!! Aren't they precious!?
Here I am 22 weeks! 0

These Family Pics were taken on Thanksgiving. We had a fun filled, busy day with family. We had our first Thanksgiving at my Mamaws. We then headed the the Smith's for our second Thanksgiving. My sister snapped these pics for our Christmas card before the day started!! I was 27 weeks here :)

Carter got to visit Santa a few times this year. Another Family tradition we have is taking C to the Enchanted Forest. This year he LOVED walking around in his walker looking at everything(esp. the trains)!!! We didn't even take in the stroller!!! HUGE improvement! Carter would not sit on Santa's lap here but we improvised and got a great shot!!! He looks SOO big here!! The next night while I was at work my parents took him to the kids Christmas program at church, followed by cookies with Santa. Of course he sat on Santa's lap and LOVED him there! Silly boy!
And here are some Twinkly light pics I took for fun one afternoon. I LOVE how they turned out!!

Iphone pics and Christmas Post coming next!!!

Popsicles do a Tummy Good!!

So the last few days Carter has come down with his first ever stomach virus. On Monday morning on the way to school when getting him out of the car he started throwing up(like 6 times!!) YUCK!!! Not much fun cleaning when you are pregnant!! So of course we came home took a bath and have been laying low ever since. We have watched probably 800 episodes of Mickey and 600 of Jake and the Pirates. We have also had LOTS of cuddle time!! He threw up one other time that day when trying to eat lunch then again yesterday when trying to eat lunch. So for two days he has had popsicles for dinner and snacks!! This and juice has been about the only thing he could keep down. He has not thrown up again this morning, but has had some rather loose stools! Hopefully we are on the uphill swing now and this will be gone soon!!! Here are a few pics of him enjoying his popsicles while watching Mickey!

Lebonheur Pumpkin Run 2011!

Every year we have wanted to participate in the Pumpkin run, but this is the first year that Carter was well enough, so we went ALL out!!! We knew we wanted him to have his own team and it only seemed fitting that the name of his team would be Team CARTERMAN!!! That is what we have called him since I was pregnant with him. We also chose the superman theme to wrap it all together and it turned out AWESOME!!!

We ended up raising over $2100 for Lebonheur and had 43 team members!!! AMAZING!!! Here is an overload of pictures from our AMAZING day!!

Our Team!

The Last Few Weeks

The last few weeks we did a lot of PJ time, lounging, sleeping in. Carter had a really bad UTI. Luckily we caught it pretty early. He then was put on the strongest PO antibiotic and got a severe Yeast infection around his vesicostomy. UTI's usually make him feel pretty crummy so he stayed home with me and he had a lot of snuggle time, lego playing and Mickey & Pirate watching. Of course once we cleared the UTI he spiked a 102 fever. We then went into the Pediatrician and prayed that it wasn't his shunt! Luckily they felt it was a fever. So lots of watching and waiting for it to pass!! Here is our little guy, not looking to sick :)

Little HAM!!
Still LOVING Mickey and Snuggling!! Carter is SOO sweet, I just can't wait to see him with Cohen!!!
This is TOTALLY his personality!!

After a few days I finally started feeling a little better. and I LOVE playing with daddy at home!
Then we started feeling pretty crummy again. Tried to go to the park and the first stop we made was time out. Not such a good park trip :(
He thinks it is hilarious to run away from me and for me to chase him!! Not so funny to have this pregnant momma chasing you!!
and Carter's pretty blues!
We finally got over the UTI and fever. Then on Monday Carter's teacher called to say that it looked like he had 4 absent seizures(petit mal seizures) bw 8-11. I was freaked out and got there as fast a possible. I didn't see anything that looked like a seizure, but we made an appt with Dr. Boop the next morning. He didn't think that he they were seizures and that he was probably just really tired and out of it from being sick for a week. Poor baby. Luckily we have seen no seizure like activity and he has been back at school and doing fabulous!!! He is also doing AWESOME with the Gold walker!! Will post a video later!!
