Happy 2nd Birthday Carter Allen!!!

WOW!! Carter Allen you are a big TWO years old!!! How did it happen so fast? It seems like just yesterday I was visiting you in the NICU at Lebonheur desperately waiting for you to come home. You have accomplished so much in the two years you have been here and I have learned so much from you. You are the most determined and independent child that I have ever seen and don't let anything get in your way of getting what you want. A few weeks ago we celebrated your birthday with a Mickey Birthday party(You LOVE Mickey right now). We had our closest family members and friends here to celebrate. Unfortunately the day before your birthday party you woke up not feeling so well(Runny nose, cough, congestion, and wheezing), so you were not feeling the greatest at your party. I can only imagine it is a little overwhelming having so many people you love in one place at the same time.

Here are the adorable decorations and Yummy Food:

and your best buddies:

eating a snack. Still weren't feeling well, so all you wanted were crackers.
Opening all of your gifts. You are sooo blessed!!

Your mom and dad also got you a slide for the backyard. You LOVE to slide. Can't wait to play with that and your sand and water table once it warms up outside! You are going to have a blast!!

Time for Birthday Cake!!
You were NOT a fan. You got a tiny piece of icing on your finger and you kept saying "Uh Oh, and Off". After that you were done. I think this had to do with you not feeling well and not eating. It was delicious though!! You were happy once you got your keys back :)
Our Sweet Family!!!! LOVE!!!

Thank you to all of our family and friends that came and shared these wonderful memories with us!! And a special thank you to My mom and sister that helped me tremendously with the food, decor and cleaning. and Thank you to Tiffany for making that LONG trip to be here with us. What a surprise and for helping take pics and capturing these precious moments. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

Happy Birthday ANGEL!!!


  1. So glad we made it!! Such a cute party!! :)

  2. How fun! What a great party.

    By the way I found your blog through Ashley Sisk. I am getting ready to have an MRI for my 10 month old son on Monday to check for Cerebral Palsey. She thought I could benefit from your blog. Your little guy is so precious!
