Today - he played with his toys. He likes the textures on his woobie bear from grandma and grandpa.

Well, the negotiations over Carters bedtime continue. We have tried the 4 B’s to get him to bed at night:
But sometime after bath, he switches the rest to:
4.) Scream when put in crib
5.) Spit up due to extreme frustration about being in crib
6.) Cough and choke on spit up loudly so that it sounds like an emergency in the baby monitors
7.) Pee enough to get it out of the diaper and need an outfit change
8.) Stomp feet and pound fists into crib and scoot all the way to the rails and then pound on those until feet and arms are hanging out between rails just enough to give mommy a heart attack
Last week, while secretly scouting out some birthday presents for daddy, I realized that I was singing loudly to Blind Melon (don’t judge me … I just can’t help it, I’m a product of the 80s and 90s) shamelessly with my windows open while driving like a jerk. Well, I apparently cut some lady off that was driving super slow, so she honked at me and flicked me off. The nerve, who flicks people off anymore? This isn’t Brooklyn New York in the 90s. I’d like to say that I ignored her and then explained to Carter that people should not act on anger or aggression, and instead should show composure and patience. Nope - I yelled … well, I yelled something that wasn’t nice that rhymes with “meet me” out my window.
If those turn out to be Carter’s first two words, I plan to tell Chad that he said it one night when he was drinking…and Carter picked it up from him. Because what kind of horrible mother would say that in front of her little baby boy all snug in his car seat wearing a pooh hat and monkey overalls?

Here is Carter in the cutest little boy outfit EVER ... playing with daddy

Although, I did notice that he had a few similarities to mommy's newborn picture too (or i am just convincing myself of that). But he grew out of those fast. Is it wrong of me to say though ... newborns all sort of look alike to me. I know ... i'm a horrible person for saying that.

Here is Carter having some playtime. He has started to smile some ... this shows it a tiny bit.

Mommies first outing without Carter. I was so sad to leave - but so happy to be out of the house. Gretchen, Regina and I went to Rocky River Brewing company for a girls dinner. It was fabulous. Chad took this of us right before we left.
