Today was Jamie's first day back, and Carter's first day at daycare - which is thankfully just at our neighbors. He's going to be so spoiled! Anyway, Jamie picked him up after work and Savannah, who is 8, told Jamie that he rolled over. Jamie was like what? Then sure enough - he brought Carter home, put him on his tummy and he rolled over! Thankfully he did it for me when I got home too, otherwise I would have been really sad!

Carter had his 4-month appointment last Friday - he is a big boy! 25.5" long (75th percentile), 16 pounds (also 75th percentile) and 41.25 head circumference (37th percentile). He did really well after his shots, too. I mean, as well as can be expected. And he slept a lot the couple of days afterwards, which was nice.

Here's a few new pics...

It's so sad that summer is almost over, but we are looking forward to being outside more this fall when it cools down a little!

We're headed to Duluth for the weekend - in my new car! Ok, so it's not exactly new, but new to me. It's a 2002 Chevy Impala. I really like it, but it's so much bigger than the Mazda was! And actually, Jamie pointed out to me that it's bigger than the Rendezvous...that just seems wrong. Ha!

I'm really buying into the sleep begets sleep theory - Carter hasn't been napping as much the last few days, and it has been so much harder for him to go to bed! He just keeps fighting it for some reason. Although he has also been waking up a lot more than he used to, but he goes right back down. Or so I think, anyway - Jamie's probably getting up to put his pacifier in. Next week is the last week that Jamie will be home with him, though, so then we'll have to split the waking duties.

So here's a random question - what is your favorite workout song? Or if you have a Nike+, what do you have as your PowerSong? I'm trying to put together a new playlist for running...

So work is going well - I'm settling back into a routine. A routine that since late last week has included a workout. At times, I'm excited about that; at others, not so much. But I've got a 5K to train for, and I don't have time to spare! It's easier to work out at the gym while I'm at work when I don't feel as much like I should be spending my time with Carter. I need to make sure I'm taking care of me, which will help me take care of him even better. I think that's what I was wrestling with a month or so ago...

Jamie's enjoying his last few weeks with Carter before school starts again - he's doing such a good job. I think it's funny how many people will say "Oh, how's Jamie doing with the babysitting?" My response is "He's not babysitting; he's parenting." Who wouldn't want to parent this guy?!


He was dedicated at church a week or so was a nice dedication, even if it was a big church, with a bunch of other kids being dedicated at the same time. I don't think God minds what the service is like, as long as the intent is pure. Anyway, it was a nice time with family after church!



We had a nice, very last minute National Night Out gathering in our driveway with almost all of the neighbors on our 'block'. It is so great to have good neighbors that we also call friends!
