Raining Petals

This post is a "PPPP" Procrastinated Picture Purge Post. Total points for all that alliteration. I am too lazy to move all the pics around to be in order. I dislike the way blogger messes with my pictures...so I will not fight it. These pictures were meant to be posted last month. These depict Carter's birthday trip to the Memphis zoo...as well as the only 2 pictures I got of his birthday cake and presents, the camera batteries died:(

I think these are one of the strangest looking creatures that roam the earth.

I am sad because the picture turned out so dark...but it is the only one I have. We let Carter pick his cake...yes...my kitchen was not unpacked yet so I was not in the position to make him one. He picked a white cake with strawberries on top...and once you scraped off all the icing it was actually really good. I rarely like store bought cake so we were happy with his selection!

Here is Carter enjoying the trampoline Grandma Theresa sent him and behind him on the couch is the present we got him. It is a little boom box that plays different songs with letters and numbers and colors. Carter likes to turn a song on and jump to the beat...then turn a new song on and jump some more. I love that we both got him gifts that he uses together and loves! He also got him some bath toys and a few summer clothes.

Who ever knew Marco Polo was so dang cute?

This was funny. Carter wasn't sure if he could get too close at first...I guess this little panda looked all too real. I finally convinced him to pose.

So far he is living up to the terrible twos. They are big shoes to fill but Carter wears them well!! He has decided to melt down into full out tantrums these past couple of days which have just come out of nowhere...so much fun. But I also love this age the very most. He communicates so well and he jokes with us and we just have so much fun. He loves to snuggle and give kisses and just hang out with Mom and Dad...which I know won't always be the case. I always try to remember that this time goes by so fast and cherish our moments...I know it won't be too long before I am yearning for days past and trying to remember what he was like when he was 2 years old. Sheesh...enough of this talk! We love our little guy so much!

Fun pictures. It looks like Carter had a happy birthday. He is a cute kid! I called you back and left a message. I was so sad that I missed you...call me back!

In response to your comment...I feel weird posting pregnant pictures...maybe I'll do it though...

Carter is getting to be such a big boy! I can't believe how grown up he looks in these pictures.

By the way, thanks for the comments on my blog! I always love hearing from you!

Happy (late) Birthday, Carter!

One of the nice things about the Terrible Twos and boys is that they really do seem to leave most of the tantrums and fits behind by the time they turn three. So there's a glimmering ray of hope for you yet!
