a birthday...



oh my goodness....guess who turned ONE??? Can a whole year really have passed that quickly? Where did our tiny baby go? Now he's such a big independent little man...trying to walk, crawling everywhere...with 12 teeth for goodness sakes!

It has gone WAYYY to fast for me...babyhood is so fleeting, one short year and then they are toddlers...sigh....
Look at this sweet man, here he is at two days old....so precious....
look at that wrinkly skin and big alert eyes already...


SOOOO now the PARTY! We made him a little racetrack cake so we could put his squishy little cars that he loves on it...he thought it was pretty cool...crushed oreos for the track...green sprinkles for the grass...a few race flags...voila! (He really is only ONE...the girls just thought he needed extra candles to blow out...:))



Presents are FUN!!!! He LOVED the "giggler-piggler" you sent Grandma Maurine and Aunt Kass...that thing is hilarious!!...

but we might as well have just given him the boxes...and the screwdriver used to put the toys together...that is what he really wanted...see that evil little grin and the glint in his eyes after he crawled over and found the screwdriver?? (don't worry, no Carter's were hurt in the making of this blog, we took the screwdriver away from him immediately...:))


You know what is amazing to me? Little boys must just come with a built-in motor....




Nobody showed him how to do it...not one of us DID it...but somehow when he picked up the cars that went to his Little People garage...he started razzing his lips and making a motor sound....where does that COME from??? tooooo funny!

Oh my I can't believe he has gotten so BIG!!! When did that happen? That screw driver picture is hilarious. It's definitely one to pull out in 15 years to torture him with.

It's funny you made that comment about the motor sound because Ben did the exact same thing when he got that same garage for his birthday - weird, huh?
