Okay, Okay...

So, I know I have definitely been slacking the past few months with posting pictures. I know 2 sister-in-laws who have probably written me off because of it. Excuse or not, I just never feel like typing anything. So in my pathetic attempt to blog... here are a bunch of pictures!

My two favorite boys before church one Sunday (prob early 4 months)

First time eating something other than milk (4 month birthday)

Happy Halloween- Todd's shirt said Tootsie Pop and mine said Tootsie Mom

My adorable Family

Maybe if you're lucky I'll do a real Christmas Post!

A Family Forever...

And just because I think it's such a cute picture here is one from when we were in L.A.

Busy, Busy

The last few weeks have been really fun and even more crazy! 2 weekends ago we went to LA to visit my brothers family. Lots of beach, peirs, shopping, food, and cute kids! We can't wait to go back down. We love having them so close!

First motorcycle experience! He loved it!

Last week Todd and I got to go to a Josh Groban concert! It was such a blast to get away! Thanks Jamie for watching C!

Little, I mean growing way to fast Carter is now wearing 3-6 month clothes! Most 0-3 still fit perfectly but the fact is that he is just growing so incredibly fast!

And finally school started for Todd again and work for me! We are both exhausted but grateful we are progressing to the end of "student life" for a while at least. Here is a pic of the little guy I watch playing with Carter. They are 14 months apart!

So like I said... Busier than ever but loving every minute!

Finding time!

I'm finally finding a little time for crafts again (my sanity is coming back)! Since. C spits up so much I needed more burp cloths than intended! I found this online and had to make a few.

Just took cloth diapers and jazzed up the center with fabric. The fun twist I found were these hooks!

It's a tag blanket twist but I can always find his binki when I have to reach back while driving. He seems to always wait to spit up until in his carseat anyway so they were perfect!

I think I found my new favorite gift for friends!

Sunday afternoon

I love Sunday afternoons! We all come home and get in our "comfies". For Carter this usually means the pants come off and a onsie will do just fine!

Then we all get a little shut eye...


Everyone except the mom! Off to make dinner and then I think I'll feed a baby! Happy Sunday everyone!

Bedtime Routines

Carter and I have gotten into our nightly routine finally! We go out for a walk and then come home and take a bath. These are quite possibly his 2 favorite things to do (next to eating)!

Loving the outdoors...

Discovering splashing!

Notice his legs flopped over the edge. Usually his arms are in the water too!

So when Carter was 6 days old my amazingly talented friend Liz took his newborn pictures. It seems like such a long time ago! He has already grown and changed so much. Here are some of our favorites!

1 month

I can't believe that our little man is already over month old! Sunday marked 1 month for Carter. He spent the day sleeping. He thought it would be fun to sleep all day Sunday and then give Mommy a present of precious one-on-one time that night wide awake! So much has happened this past month and I am still amazed with this little life we have been blessed with.

At his 1 month mark here are some of the things we have noticed about Carter
-He now weighs a little over 10lbs and is 22in long
-His hair is getting lighter, longer, and crazier
-He loves looking around especially when outside
-He is starting to sleep in his crib more and more
-He is starting to smile more and more (mainly when mommy makes a fool of herself)
-He found his hand the day he was born but more and more he is finding thumb... oh no!
-He absolutely loves bath time

-He loves his daddy and usually takes a nap with him when Todd gets home

I wish time would slow down a little because my little newborn is no longer a little newborn, At the same time, we are anxious for the more milestones he will make and the more we can interact with him.

On a side note... last week we had a play date, for the moms that is, with Beckham King (2 months) and MaKynzie Belo(4 months). These three will be friends whether they like it or not. Here is their first picture together.

Pictures galore

Here are just a few random pictures from our adventures over the past 3 weeks...

Carter's Blessing

Saturday night, July 16th, was a very cool night for Todd and I. Over this past week we have had all of Todd's siblings in town and for 48 hours I had both of my siblings in town. Since we had them all here we decided to bless Carter. It was such a cool experience to have all of our siblings here and especially all our brothers here to help out with the blessing.

Todd did a fabulous job with the blessing. He is such a sweet and loving father to Carter. I am so lucky to have such a great husband who is able to teach and love our little family so much.

Thanks to everyone who was there! It meant a lot to us to have so many family members present. I didn't get a group photo of the Barth family on my camera but here are a few of the ones I did get.

Book Shower

My great friend Belinda threw Carter and I a fabulous Book Shower this past weekend. It was such a cute idea. She has had a close connection with my family for a very long time and over the past few years I have been able to get to know her on a more personal level which has been so much fun. She has such a talent for this kind of thing (even if she doesn't think so). It was absolutely beautiful!

Since Carter and I have already had the typical baby shower she wanted to throw one for just family members and since I didn't need much of the "traditional" gifts the books were perfect! The teacher in me was so giddy as I opened up each gift. We were able to get such a variety of gifts.

Today's job is to get the library all set up in his bedroom. I think I need to convince either Grandpa Dan to build a new bookshelf or Todd to let me buy one so his books will all fit!
