He loves to eat peanut butter on whole wheat bread! He is allergic to milk and so we have been rotating formula and rice milk. He still prefers the formula to the rice milk. He loves to play with cars and balls. He says mommy and daddy! He could say hi all day and is going through this phase of saying, "Hi, hi, hi, hi, hi, hi, hi......" you get the point! He says me and bye.
He prefers Daddy to Mommy. The minute Dad gets home he follows him around begging to be held, crying if Daddy puts him down, and pushing Mommy away if she tries to take him from Dad. He loves his big brother Jakob and is learning to play well with Isabelle. She has toughened him up and he enjoys her company MOST of the time. We just love him so much and are trying to enjoy these baby days since we know they will be gone all too quickly. Love you Karter man!

I can't believe that you started 1st grade today!! Such a big step in your life! You have been talking a lot about school these last couple months, nervous to be going to a new school where you don't know anyone. I was so proud of you this morning! You walked into your classroom, found your seat, and said goodbye. I could tell how nervous you were, but you were so brave.
Last night your dad gave you a blessing promising you that you would find good friends and learn many good things. When you went to bed last night you told your dad that you were a little excited for school to start, that Heavenly Father helped you to get excited.
I just can't believe that you have grown up so fast! You do so many things on your own and are so self sufficient. You are thinking a lot and coming up with some big questions. The other day you asked me if numbers go on forever. You also are thinking about your future, debating what you want to be when you grow up and talking about who you want to marry. So many things to think about.

Main Floor Bath
This room is finished!! I need to take pictures and post!! The only thing we will do with the room that we have not done is put new trim up and paint the doors. We are planning to take our time with that since we are doing it ourselves and will slowly do it at our own pace.
