Carter’s First Birthday

Here's a collection of photos from Carter's first birthday. She's starting to stand without support or help, and she's not even wobbling any more. Her first steps are just days away, I suspect. She loved the presents, and devoured the cake - this was actually the first time she had ever had cake, but she wasn't shy about it! Actually, Carter took way more interest in her first birthday than Sean did - when he turned one, he hardly even paid attention to what was going on, never mind getting involved or excited. I think Carter definitely takes after her mom's extroverted ways, and Sean is more like his introverted daddy.

New Skills

Carter has been picking up some new skills lately. Here you can see her feeding herself with a spoon, and learning to color with crayons. And check out that first photo - what a ham!

Apple Picking

This actually happened quite a while ago, but I am just now getting around to posting the pictures. Tracy and Ryan took us to Butternut Farms to pick some apples. The kids had a great time. The weather could not have been better, and the apples had reached that perfect stage of ripeness. Carter got her first taste of a "real" apple, instead of mashed apples from a jar.
