I found this pic in my old (new again) cell phone from September 2008, so I guess he was seven months old. I just love his little face in it.

Dear Chooch,

I love sharing my yogurt with you in the morning. Thank you for eating all my disgusting strawberry chunks. You are totally my number one.

15 months!

Today Carter turned fifteen months- UGH, I just can't believe it. I had the day off of work, so I took him to the Virginia Zoo. It has nothing on Cleveland, but it is a good size for him.
I left the camera at home, and just let him have a special day. I let him walk, and lead the way. He walked circles around the petting zoo- he got brave and touched a goat and let it lick his hand. He spent 30 minutes easy by the giraffes, and he got a train ride.
The train was so cute, and he did not want to sit on my lap, he wanted to sit by himself- hands off Mama, I'm a big boy. **sniffle**

Okay, so I was about twenty pounds heavier than I needed to be when I got pregnant, but seriously? I am eight weeks and here is my tummy:I admit that I by no means had my "pre-Carter flat stomach" but this my friends- is all baby. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Baldy Baby

The mohawk was so cute, but not for his permanent look. I just can't believe how much he looks like Chris with his head shaved! I miss the red!

Big Week!

Well, first off- we had our FRG (family readiness group) meeting this week, and updated us on our "schedule." As of right now, Chris will be leaving Norfolk in February, going on a short cruise around South America, and docking in California April 2010. So, approximately ten months from now me, Cart, Roof, and our +1 will be taking a cross-country trip.
Wait. Did you hear that? My +1? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh! Finally!

Major changes are heading our way! I am just trying to brace myself, hold on tight, and savor every last minute.

Chris got a little clipper happy this weekend and gave Carter a 'hawk. I am a kind of partial to his little boy cut, but I can't deny how cute it looks. It kind of fits his personality too- being that he has really turned out so mischievous. Everyone thought he had Chris' personality at first, but I beg to differ.

There are some more/new pics on winkflash is you want to check them out.
