Mr Carter is 4 Weeks Old

Today marks four weeks since Carter joined our family. In some ways it seems like we just brought him home from the hospital, and in other ways it is if he has always been a part of our family. Amazing how that happens. Last night, he blessed us by sleeping a solid five hours. Tonight I'm hoping for six hours of blissful sleep. We shall see how that goes. ha. I'm enjoying these newborn days with this little guy for I know they will slip away all too quickly.
In other news, Zach continues to add several new words to his vocabulary on an almost daily basis. I get so tickled at him because he adds an "h" to the beginning of a lot of his words. For example, Big is Hig, Rock is Hock, Buckle is Huckle, Walk is Halk, and so on. Yesterday he stopped calling me Ma-ma and started calling me Mom. He was so proud of this new found name, and he called for me all day long. So cute.

And, I'll finish up with sharing a few Tylerisms. I told Tyler to finish up his breakfast earlier this week, and he replied, " Whatever you say kiddo". I turned 30 today and he wished me a Happy Birthday and said, "Are you going to be four?". I told him that no Mommy was getting really old, and he said, "Oh, so you are going to be five?". :) Zach decided to throw sand in Tyler's face while they were playing outside, and Tyler quickly came to me and said, "Mommy, you have got to deal with him".
