We interupt this blog for some breaking news...

I really don't want this blog to be all "HEY! Look at what Carter is doing!" but that's hard to do when he decides to achieve many milestones in the same day. It seems like when babies are learning about the world around them, every day is new and exciting. Once you become a preschooler like Logan, it's old hat and just a part of life.

Yesterday while I was working (writing) and the boys were playing together with cars on the floor, Carter began to wave 'bye-bye' and actually tried to say 'bye-bye' too. I was shocked. First, this is not something I've shown him before. It was like he picked it up out of nowhere! He thought it was the coolest and we waved bye-bye to each other all afternoon.

Right after he learned to say "ma ma", he had a huge surge in vocalization, babbling and talking to himself all day long. He quickly picked up on "da da". In one day.

Then, Carter likes to crawl after Logan and they play together at the bottom of the stairs using them as racing tracks. The front room is still empty too, so Logan will play with balls while Carter sits and watches. It's really cute. So, they were playing on the stairs and Logan runs over to me. "Carter did it all by himself every single day!" (every single day is now what he says after every statement). I get up and see what he's doing and lo and behold, Carter has pulled himself up and he was standing. All by himself.

It was a day full of excitement over here yesterday. Busy little bees we were!

So cute! It seems that little Carter is anxious to follow in big brother's footsteps :)

Smiles about the 'every single day thing' ;) Myles' latest thing is to add 'yesterday' to almost every phrase: "We went to the pool, yesterday, didn't we?" When we really went today, or last week etc.

I Love it! He is so cute! I adore that Logan has an answer to everything you say too. He's grown up so much since we saw him last. I really need to come to Ft. Collins to see the kids (and you too) this summer.
