Little brother is 18 months old!

We had a family day at Cades Cove this past weekend and I thought it would be the perfect time to capture Carter at 18 months!

We took him to a creek there and this was his first glimpse of it. He always take in the world around  normally give the "Oh WOW!" face!

After thinking it over he got excited when you heard Daddy and Griffin were going in and started clapping. Pretty much anything they are doing, he wants to be in the middle of.

 Daddy is so good to let him go at his own speed and he loves being right by his side.

Feels pretty good on those feet... this isnt bad!

 By this age I had big brother trained when I had out the camera with the cheese face. This however is what he gives me :)

Speaking of big brother, he is his favorite person in the world! These two have so much fun together and I couldnt be more thankful that they truly are best buds.

Now that his personality has come alive, I often find big brother watching him to see what he is going to do next. They both love to make each other laugh and will do anything to start the giggles!

This shirt really says it all! Carter is tough as nails and rarely cry when he falls or gets hurt... he save all the crying for when he gets MAD! Oh that temper is a bad one. His new thing is that when he doesnt get his way, he runs as fast as he can to hit something. Doesnt matter what it is.. just have anger and need to get it out quick!

We often see this little hand out. Typically it is to ask for more food, but in this case he is wanting a rock too because he saw Griffin throwing one.

Daddy was teaching them how to skip rocks. I can promise, if there is something a little boy is supposed to know or do... their Daddy will show them!

The boys spotted two butterflies and were watching them fly. Little brother kept saying "buttfly" and then shortly after I took this picture went over and picked one of them up and then threw it down. Again not afraid of anything!

Oh you little stinker! That smile captures anyone and you have filled our life with a lot of joy, even though I do call you "Our little stinker!"

I pray that these two will continue to walk through this life, hand in hand, encouraging one another and pointing each other to Jesus. It is a joy to be your Mommy!

A few other things to remember about Carter at 18 months:
-still taking two naps a day and sleeps from 8pm-7am
-goes to bed a 8pm and still has to have the bottle at bedtime (UGH!)
-loves going to school. will walk into your class and turn around to blow me a kiss without a second thought.
-obsessed with Batman and can sing the theme song
-usually one of two extremes: giggling or screaming
-wearing 18-24 mo, size 4 diapers and 4.5 shoe
-can say just about anything he wants to
-loves puppies and motorcycles
