What about this cutie????

Carter has always been a fun, cheerful kid. As we creep closer and closer to the big 5 in August, he actually amazes me more. He's becoming his own little independent little man. He thinks he's grown. Give him a herd of cows, and he's going to tell you he knows what to do with them. Ask him to clean his room and he's going to tell you he needs your help. So go figure. 
His giggle is still one that when I hear it, it's contagious. His little mind so full of questions, yet so full of knowledge. How is that? He is truly amazing. Everyday he amazes me with some out of this world comment. He's awesome with Tucker, and I love to see them play together. Tucker adores him, as do most people that meet him. He just has this spirit about him that is a joy. 
I sometimes look at him at the end of the day and just stand there. I wonder where did the day go, where did my little Carter go. I contemplate finding some way to stop time, but I know I can't. I just have to hold on, embrace the days that lie ahead, and trust and know that God is molding this precious child into something amazing. He has a heart like no other child I have ever met. He is compassionate, he's loving, and he loves Jesus at the tender age of 4. 
I love this kid. I love him dearly, even on the days I wonder how we're going to make it past lunchtime... he's still awesome. His smile makes even the most miserable day better!  Just look at that smile, and those eyes... wouldn't you smile if he was looking at you? 
This last one is for my friend Kari. Do you see how far I am outside of my comfort zone? He's standing on top of the car, and I wasn't freaking... I'm making progress!!! :) I kept telling myself it's only a few feet off the ground, it's not the end of the world, quit being so over protective!!!  Now, Kari... quit laughing at me! 
Carter, thank you sweet child. Thank you for your laughter, for your pure, innocent spirit. You are my heart, and I love you so very much!!  love... momma
