Carter turns 2!

We started off Carter's birthday weekend by going for dinner Saturday night and heading to the mall. We first started at the Easter bunny. He just sat there and took it all in. :)
Then it was off to ride the carousel for his first time. He LOVED it and would wave and yell, Hi Mommy! everytime he went past me. So cute!
Last night we had a Monster Truck party for Carter's birthday. Here is a picture of the cake I made.
Showing off his ADORABLE shirt from Miss Jenni....she was a lifesaver b/c I couldn't find a cute monster truck shirt and she whipped this out for me last cute! Wait til you see more of her handiwork in the next few weeks.
Quick picture with preggo mommy before the party.
Posing with his cousins whom he absolutely adores! He was SO EXCITED to see them.
Grandpa Jim had to help open most gifts (go figure).
He got an adorable suitcase from Uncle Eric, Aunt Kate and the girls but as you can see the packaging was more fun!
Opening his new basketball hoop from grandpa and grandma DJ.
Blowing out his candles...we had to light them several times b/c he loved to blow them out.
Today was a busy day! We started off at Carter's 2 year appt...he did SO GOOD and was an angel for the nurse and Dr. He weighed 28.4 lbs. and was 34.75 inches tall...both around the 50th-75th percentile. Then we brought Carter to Vicki's house to play with Alyssa and Kaylee while I went to my 36 week appt. All is well. Heartbeat was 145...has been 150 and 160 at the last two appts. so this baby is a mystery! I am not dialated or anything which is fine by me...I am not quite ready! After my appt. we went to Jackson and Greyson's house to play. Jackson gave Carter a birthday present...more tractors! As you can see he was pretty excited!
The three dudes hanging on the couch.
Brian had Carter line up all his new tractors tonight (of course his monster trucks had to be in it too). Carter thought he needed his new rain boots on too! Trying so hard to smile. :) We had a super fun birthday weekend with our little guy and look forward to many, many more years together! We love you Carter James!
