I figured it was time to catch up on a few photos. I haven't been taking as many pictures lately as I should, but I have snagged a few.
I realized a while back that I never shared the winner of the Christmas card shoot. It's a miracle I got both boys in the same picture, and no children were harmed in the process. Yay for small miracles!
Carter is quite the handful these days. He's feeling better after his ear infection. He's still not quite back to eating normally, but he's sleeping fine and has plenty of energy. He's getting into everything. He will not leave Jacob's stuff alone. I don't know how babies instinctively want to get into the very things they're not supposed to touch, but they do. Carter also wants to put everything in his mouth, which is getting frustrating. Here's a picture of his toy corner, where we can fence him in if we have to, but he usually gets upset about being in there so right now I'm mostly using it when I absolutely have to.
|I do like that the gate sort of blends into the wall a bit. This area is usually a bit of a mess, but it picks up quick.|
|This is a perfect smile, though, complete with all eight of his teeth!|
|He likes this truck a lot. It sings the most annoying songs, but if it keeps him occupied, so be it. Pretty sure he's already played with it more than Jacob did.|
|Cheesy smile while playing with Jacob's golf club and his own little basketballs...and so begins the sports!|
|He's still working on his technique...|
|Giggling as he tried to climb on me!|
|Getting into trouble as usual...this time up on the ottoman grabbing the remotes!|
|Showing off his puppy skills! He is constantly crawling around with something in his mouth!|
We're heading into a weekend without Craig, who's off to Edmonton for work. We don't have any plans for tomorrow, so I may need to make some to save us from an entire day in the house trying to keep Carter out of trouble and get Jacob out from in front of the TV. Sunday we have a Superbowl party to go to--one we've gone to over the years but that had taken a two year hiatus. I'm a little nervous about getting the kids there myself (Craig will just be getting back and meeting us there late), keeping Jacob away from the gluten, and keeping both kids occupied. But it's a great party with good friends, so I'll do my best and come home if we have to.
Starting off the weekend by being up far too late isn't good, so that's it's for now...
