Pics of the Day – Year One

Carter’s first birthday is coming up this week.  His Aunt Lori and Uncle Sean were here for a visit this weekend, and Lori was gracious enough to produce this incredible compilation of the first year of Carter’s “pics of the day.”

Thank you, Lori – not only for the video, but also for being way more organized than us with the pics of the day.

Carter’s first taste of cereal




Last week at the doctor, we learned that Carter might be ready to start cereal. Amber said some of the signs that babies are ready include eating more than 40 oz of milk per day and getting hungry between feedings. He’s been taking more than 40 oz a day for a while now and for the last four nights, we’ve gotten up for at least two feedings. I really wanted to hold out until he was closer to six months, but sleep deprivation won out. Tonight, we went to the store and bought the boy some rice cereal.


Here’s some video of his reaction.

He wasn’t quite sure about it, but we think he’ll like having a full tummy.


Talking with Carter

Carter has been talking and cooing quite a bit yesterday.  He’s especially vocal at bedtime.  Here, he and Lisa are having a lovely conversation.  He’s also about 90 seconds away from completely losing it.
