baby C and baby Z

I'm terrible at remembering to update my blog.

Let's play some catch-up, shall we?
Carter turned 4 months old in January! Oh 4 months with this little guy...

Here's an update:

* He started talking and cooing out loud.
* Smiles all the time
* Loves watching Colin and any other little person who is willing to act goofy
* Started sleeping in his CRIB! Finally... I take the blame for that one. He just started sleeping in our room and I never made him go to his own room.
* Rolled over from belly to back
* His 4 month check-up he was 16lbs, 25 inches
* Wears a size 6 months
* Eats 6oz every 3-4 hours
* Sleeps from 7:30pm-3:30am, 4:00am-6:30am
* Naps - about an hour around 9:30am, 2-3 hours at 1:00pm
* Oh and he just reminded me.... he started screaming and then laughing afterwards

We had another little fella join the family this month. Justin's brother and wife welcomed little Zachary on the 17th. He is such a cute little guy. I went last week and took some pictures and he was great.... until I suggested a curled up naked baby shot... oops. Zac is a little modest and hated the very thought. Bad for baby, great for aunt. I got to snuggle with him and feed him a bottle! Here is the little (big) guy...

It has been really cold and snowy lately. We really haven't done too much. Justin's birthday was the 5th. We celebrated with his family last Sunday. I only took one picture of Uncle Matt and Carter - I told myself I would start taking more pictures and I didn't.

Notice Carter's 1 mitten? He sucks his hand and he popped a blister. Poor guy! We have been keeping it clean and dry. That was all I could think of to keep him from eating a bandaid.

We couldn't be more excited. Uncle Matt and Aunt Sara are expecting their first baby. She is due.... tomorrow!!! It's a boy. It is the first cousin for Colin and Carter on Justin's side. I am so excited for them. They are naturals and will be great parents.

So it has been snowy and cold here. Justin and Colin have been taking care of the outside. Here is Colin out in the driveway. He was helping shovel when I ran out, snapped a fast picture and ran like heck back in the house.

Justin's brother is taking Colin to Monster Jam tonight. I asked Colin if he wanted to go with Uncle Todd tonight and he started jumping up and down. The last time we took him to Monster Truck Nationals it wasn't the best experience. He cried and was scared so we watched it on the tv screen in a lounge. Todd has been warned. Colin told me this morning that is isn't 3 anymore and his 4 year old ears won't hurt. Justin is out now getting new ear plugs. Thanks Uncle Todd! Hope you are ready :)
