Buddies Growing Up- Luka & Carson

It seems like just yesterday Kellee and I were in our "Childbirth Prep" class at St. Vincents and now suddenly the boys are 9 months old! They love hanging out.

Smile? Camera? We're very busy!

Oh! Smile! Okay!

This is soooo interesting!

9 Months Week 2- OOPS! Put that diaper back on!

I'd like to blame this on Daddy but I was the one insisting on "airing out" the parts. He looks so sweet and innocent in the background!
Cutest bathtime bubble helmet ever!
Just showing off my cute Nike jacket from friends!

9 Months Week 2- Learning Where People Go

No pics but the cutest story ever! Carson has learned to follow us. When one of leaves the house he crawls over to the window to look for us outside. Today Daddy was working from home and Carson could hear him. He followed the voice to the office door, which I thought was shut. Carson pushed as hard as he could (he recently figured out how to push open and shut doors). Lucky for him the door wasn't latched and he discovered Daddy sitting inside. An hour later he heard him again so he crawled over but this time the door wouldn't open so he stood up outside the door and banged on it to get Daddy's attention. It sounds so silly but we both couldn't stop laughing and being proud parents!

Video- Carson Cruising the Living Room Part 1

This little guy is a speed demon! Check out his cruising talents!

Video- Carson Just Loves Laughing!

Even better than getting chased is getting caught! Carson just can't stop laughing in this clip!

Video- Wild Laughter during the Great Daddy Chase!

Carson loves to get chased! He especially loves it when Daddy chases him. He laughs so hard that he can't move or falls over.

Video- Carson & Jackson Playing "Fetch"

Carson is trying his darndest to entice Jackson into a game of fetch. Unfortunately his throwing abilities are not quite up to par. Jackson is entirely unimpressed. Sorry Carson!

Video- Carson Learns to Throw

I am finally figuring out video! Now bear with me as I figure out how to just get the cute stuff and not make you watch everything inbetween. Here is a cute clip of Carson when he learned to throw.

Month 9- Week 1- Fisher Price Living Room

I will never live down the statement I made at my very first baby shower about "I will never have a Fisher Price, plastic, red, yellow, and blue living room!!" These pictures illustrate just how wrong I was. Now I'm a sucker for anything that will make my little boy happy!

Mommy found this for me on Craig's List! I love the colors!

I think I'm supposed to go inside it!Oh ya! This feels right!Peekaboo!

When nobody was looking I turned my play table upside down! It makes the perfect climbing structure!
Trust me Jackson, this is safer than it looks!

Month 8 Week 4- Easter Aftermath

Playing around with the camera after Easter!

Thank you Nana for the toy!
I'm going to eat these Easter eggs!
Daddy! I'm going to get you and that fun looking camera!

Jackson, my best friend!
I'm so cute!

Somewhere along the way, we heard about a technique to help babies learn balance. We lean Carson up against the wall and let go. It's been amazing to watch how his balance improves so much each month! It's also eerie to see him just standing there!
Look Mama! No hands!
I'm so proud of myself! Clap, clap, clap!

Best friends!
Soft fur tickles my face!
Please don't leave! I refuse to let go!

Month 8 Week 4- Easter

We celebrated Easter with the Bride Tribe at Aunt Donna's in Salem. Carson enjoyed the 30+ people and didn't stop for the entire 4 hours. He crashed the minute we pulled out of the driveway and slept the whole way home.

Month 8- Week 4- Random Cute Pics

Nothing special just some cute pics of our ACTIVE little guy! He is quick to find anything new to explore and climb into. In this case, Daddy turned his back for a few seconds and Carson found his stroller on the floor!

Daddy playing with the camera!

After the zoo, we played and then it was time to get cleaned up! Eloise (now 11 months) and Carson enjoyed a little splashing together!

Toothful grin!
Toothless grin!

Hairpulling is not allowed

We love chewing on toys!
Hmm, I don't have one of those.

How Old is Carson?

How Old is Keaton?
