Carter's 2!

Our little Bubba just celebrated his second birthday. Upon being asked how old are you Carter? He'll stick his hand in the air and shout two! We tried to make his day special and put all of our attention on him. I'm pretty sure he enjoyed this. He was able to watch the Wiggles, play at mommy's work, and basically have his way the entire day. Spencer enjoyed telling everyone that it was Carter's birthday and how his little brother turned 2 today. It was very cute.

We waited till he finished his nap and Rob was home to start the festivities. We ordered pizza, opened presents, and then had cake. He opened each present very meticulously, starting out at the corner, and eventually tearing the entire paper off. He enjoyed all his presents: the blocks, the puzzle, the Wiggles book and movie, the moving dog, and his bowling pin set. -Yes, he made out like a bandit.

We sang him Happy Birthday, and he had a huge grin on his face the entire time, focusing on the candles, wanting to touch them and saying hot, hot, hot, hot, over and over and over again. It was hilarious! We were very impressed that he was able to blow out his candles all by himself. (I think the flying spit helped douse one of the candles.) I guess it was good that it was just family. I don't think any one else would have appreciated the added moistness.

Thanks for the calls and gifts. He really enjoyed talking with his grandparents on the phone. He thinks he's something special when he gets to talk on the phone. It was fun to be able to talk to all too.

So I guess it's official that my baby's not a baby anymore. He has grown so fast. He is learning to communicate and becoming more and more independent. It's a beautiful thing. He is such a charmer and has the cutest chuckle. We love his personality and his zest to have fun!

Happy Birthday Carter!
