And we have a...

TODDLER! Yep, that's right! 2 weeks ago Carter finally decided to walk on his own. So I guess I can't call him my baby anymore. :( He had been taking steps for months but would never just go...he would always just stop, bend down and crawl. Everyday he walks more and more and doesn't crawl as much. It's so fun to watch him.

Just a cute pic I thought. I propped him up in the neighbors tree. :)

The rest of these are in no particular order. Sunday we went to mom and dad Meeuwsen's pool and Brian thought Carter needed to go down the slide. It was close to nap time when we got there so I didn't bother with a suit; just threw a swim diaper on.

And he LOVED it! And wanted to go again and again and again...

Saturday we spent the day/night in Grand Haven with mom and dad Meeuwsen for the Coast Guard festival. Carter was happy as long as got to go for a few dinghy rides. The weather was the pits but we still had a fun day and the fireworks were AWESOME. Grand Haven has the best by far. Carter slept through them all and didn't make a peep all night in the boat!

Last week we went to visit daddy at the fair while he was buying animals. Of course Carter spotted Meppelink's car and had to sit in it and go vroom, vroom (as you can see by his lips). He loved the animals too and I suffered and walked through the barns and sneezed and sneezed...lovely allergies!

The weekend before we had Brian's cousin's wedding. We snapped a few pics before dropping Carter off at Grandpa and Grandma DeJonge's.

And earlier in the week we went to play at Helder Park with Alyssa and Kaylee. They had fun playing together. Next year will be even more fun with Kaylee running around!
That's about it all we have been up to for now! Brian says stay tuned for an update next week of Sumo tube Part II. Just for you Kennedy! :)

That's funny!! She'll be excited to watch Brian fall off the tube. Glad you're having a nice summer and that your life with Carter just got even busier. You'll soon realize that him not walking wasn't all that bad. Although I'm sure he was a super fast crawler and that keeps you hopping as well.
