14 Months

Carter turned 14 months yesterday! Where are the days going? We are having so much fun with him. He is completely walking now and no longer crawls. He is wearing a size 4 diaper, a size 4 or 5 in shoes (just depends on the brand). He is wearing some 12 month clothing still, but mostly 18 month clothing. He sleeps through the night, which he has been doing for months. He usually goes down between 9:00 and 9:30 pm and sleeps until 7:30 or 8:00 am. I am very happy with this schedule. Blake and I stay up very late so it works for us. Carter also sleeps with a sound machine, which he has since he was a couple months old. We use it at nap time and bed time and sometimes in the car to drown out other noises. Carter is still drinking from a sippy cup with milk at nap time and bed time and the rest of the time he drinks water from a cup with a straw. He is still eating pureed baby food, but also eats some regular foods too. Carter is a talking machine (like his mama). We babble all day and night and his favorite word that he says all the time is dada. He still watches the same shows and he still has 4 teeth on the top and 4 on the bottom, though we can feel a couple more trying to break through. My favorite thing that he has been doing for a couple months is giving kisses! If you are eye level with him and ask for a kiss he will give you a great big kiss. Of course we do this all day and night. He also gives big hugs. Carter's Recaro car seats face forward now. His legs and feet were so big and long that we had to turn him around. He absolutely loves it. We are loving every minute with our big boy and can't wait to see what the next few months have in store for us, with a move to a new house, Disneyland, a Disney cruise, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas right around the corner!
