Our sweet little guy is already 9 months old!!!  I just can't believe it.  Before I know it, I won't even have a baby anymore!!  Here's what he's up to since my last update:
- Carter is making so many sounds.  He says Momma now when he's happy, not just upset.  :)
He said Dada yesterday.  Sunday he was playing with the ladybug on his saucer saying Bu bu bu.   
- He has started reaching up for me when I walk near him.  It's hard not to pick him up when he looks up with those blue eyes and chubby cheeks!!
- He is grabbing at EVERYTHING!!
- He cries when Caroline cries.  It's pretty pitiful.  He loves his sister. 
- He is napping a lot less.
- He gives high fives.  It started out trying to teach him to wave hi, and it turned into a high five.  He seems to enjoy that one more. 
- He gives me the sweetest kisses.  That's my favorite!!!
-Carter is still not crawling, but he's a pro at turning circles.  Then he gets mad and rolls onto his back.  He's in no rush to do all the crawling and pulling up.  A part of me is ok with this because it means he's going to be a baby longer, but his best friend Catch is about to walk.  Speaking of comparing Carter and Catch, Carter is about 2 pounds and 2 inches smaller than his buddy.  Carter does have him beat in # of teeth though.  He has 6 and is cutting more as we speak!! 
-At his appointment, Carter weighed in at 19 pounds 15 ounces and measured 26 3/4 in lenghth.  This was the 25-50th percentile in both.  Dr. Dooley does want to see him in a month to check his head circumference again.  She's a little concerned because it went from 50th to 75th to 97th percentile in 9 months.  Caroline's was always in the 90th, but Carter's didn't start there, where hers did.  We'll have to say some prayers that everything's ok and he won't need a scan of his brain next month. 
Carter Edward is just as precious as can be.  We are so in love with this little guy.  (Caroline's getting there!)
Giving high fives.

He is too cute! I picked him up the other day to hold him and was surprised by how light he was! He's so round, I actually expected him to be heavier. He just melted into my arms. I can't believe he already has 6 teeth!!! He's going to be eating steak in the next couple months! ;0) I hope all goes well next month. Can't wait to visit with you this Sunday!
