ISR week-5

Awesome float!  Plus Angelee only has to tell him to come get her now and he flips to his swim on his own!

His 1st attempt of "jumping" off the step by himself.  Notice, he walks and sinks :)

He's officially a big boy!

In one day, my little boy has now grown into a big boy!  I'm so sad, but happy at the same time.  I went in to get him from his nap and found him doing this.. of course, I made him do it once more for the camera.  
video
We've now opened the little gate to his bed and so he can crawl in and out on his own.  He was a VERY good boy his first night with the door open.  He even stayed in his crib until I came in and got him in the morning.  All his animals were on the floor, and when I went in he pointed and said "notty".  How precious!
video

Down to lunch, there was another 1st.  I've been trying to teach him how to use a spoon on his own, he's not very good at it, but today I gave him his yoghurt and he was able to eat it himself.  Sure he was covered in yoghurt by the end of lunch, but he ate it all on his own!

Infant Swimming Resource - Week 1

This week Carter starts his ISR lessons!  I'm sure you're wondering what ISR is, well, instead of me telling you, I can show you over the next 6-weeks!  As Carter has been enrolled and today was the 1st day I could video him.  Sure there will be a little crying, and a lot of tears, swimming scared me at first too!  But I know I'll have a little water bug on my hands after this is all said and done!  Carters instructor is Angelee, she is amazing, and we love her!

No I didn't teach him this....

We have a photo of Mr C in my studio that hasn't been put on the wall yet, It's from his newborn photo shoot. I was in the kitchen when I heard him babbling so I peeked my head around the corner, grabbed the camera, and caught this.




Awwwwww :)

Pool Time!!

Since we have Miss Sadie while Gamma is out of town, Carter wants to make sure she's getting enough Love and attention!
video

It is so difficult to get this boy to look at me for a photo, so lately, we've only been doing video, but how cute are these?!

Racing horses in the pool! Silly boy!

Wishing Daddy was here with us!

Could you say no to this face?

Definitely a Gross...

Why do I say that? Because there seems to be an obsession with CAKE in the Gross Family.



And without any provoking on my part, the boy LICKED the frosting off his plate!


of course I made him do it again for the video...as Daddy says, not a good thing to be teaching the boy!
video

Maybe we should just buy him a dog bed!

Carter Loves to run to Dakota's Bed and DIVE!

video

Iowa boy at heart

I know what all you Kansas People will say, he can be a little Kansas too, but today, today, he's an Iowa Boy!

Bounce Jungle Rocks!!

We decided to try out Bounce Jungle with our Playdate Group. I wasn't sure CK was going to enjoy this one, but after a short warm up with me in a bounce house, he was ALL over the place!

Here's Mommy being mean & making him chase her...
video

CK Crawling in with his friend Owen near by!


Mommy forgot as she was trying to do too many things that you can't hold the camera sideways.. so tilt your head :) This is CK climbing the steep ladder to the slide! What a big boy! He did half of it himself, then he wanted help.
video



Finally up to the top of the slide! He LOVED it!
video





I know this is so out of focus, but you can see the HUGE smile on his face as we come down the slide!


Later in the evening we went to Grandma & Grandpa's where he put on Uncle Jeff's shoe. Which is his new favorite thing to do. The boy loves everyones shoes! Except when they are puuuie!!
