Happy 3rd Birthday, Karter!

It seems like just yesterday we were welcoming our first baby into the world and in the blink of an eye our baby boy has just turned 3!!! Even from his first days, Karter has always been a sweet, happy, loving little guy. What a blessing he is to our family!

Our boy isn't a baby anymore, he has grown into a very handsome 3 year old. He had his 3 year physical this week and his stats are full of threes...3 feet 3 inches tall (90th percentile) and 33 1/2 pounds (65th percentile). This was Karter's first appointment with Dr. Richmond, and she was very impressed with his vocabulary and counting abilities. She said he is above that of a normal three year old!

Karter and I have a little tradition, every year on his birthday we go out to lunch at Applebee's. It started out when he turned one and it was the only restaurant in Hastings, and last year he chose it himself...and this year he picked it again. So I guess it is a tradition!

This year we invited Aunt Emmy and Gramaw to come along for our celebration!

And of course Kado was there too!!

Tonight we celebrated with a dinner at home just the 6 of us (well, Papaw was late, but he got home in time for brownies!)!

Karter had a little issue this morning swallowing the fact that he was getting older, we had a little disagreement and he insisted "but I really liked being 2!" By the end of the day he finally came to terms with getting older. He did wake up knowing he got to eat off the red plate today...I guess he remembered that from last month when it was Gramaw's birthday. (He has an AMAZING memory!!)

Just like Daddy, Karter gets spaghetti for his birthday dinner!


Since we already had his party, I just made him a little pan of brownies for tonight. He insisted on putting his own candles on!
