Justin found the camera cord!

Yeah, I can post pictures now! Of course the camera cord was "in plain sight" sitting in a pile of cable and internet cords in the living room. Our apartment is slowly coming together. We actually painted Carrie's room yesterday (thanks mom and dad). I'll get a picture of it as soon as we get all the furniture out of the middle of the room. :)

So here's catching up on the pictures from the last few weeks.
Carrie likes to turn sideways in her crib. I thought this picture was funny with her dress spread everywhere.

A couple weeks ago Carrie got to visit a pediatric Cardiologist to check out a little murmur her regular doctor found (actually very common in babies). Here she's hooked up to the EKG machine. Everything looked great, the doc said her murmur is very very faint and should resolve itself. We have a follow-up in a year.

I was trying out a new hair-do. A headband with little curls all over. Mostly I just love the smile. She's sooo happy. She looks like this most of the time - huge grin on her face. And she laughs at the silliest things. Today after dinner my brothers were throwing a little monkey stuffed animal back and forth across the room and she thought it was the most hilarious thing - especially when they made it do flips. :)

This is her new favorite thing. We call it a lot of things. Her bear, blankie, woobie... Whatever. The point is she loves to hold it when she goes to sleep. We'll lay her down and give it to her, she cuddles right up to it, snuggles it to her cheek and she's out. It's magic. We need to get 1 or 2 more in case something happens to this one. :)

Carrie and Rooster. They're the exact same size! I love how they're both looking right at me and playing footsie.
And finally, this was my attempt at a "cool" birthday cake. It was for my friend/might as well be little brother. It's supposed to be a high-top sneaker stepping in mud... Whatever...
Justin's doing great with his sales and I've been able to pick up a few more shifts. Carrie is getting much better at naps and is consistantly sleeping 12 hours at night. :) She has discovered her voice and starting a couple days ago has been "screaming" non-stop. It's happy screaming, just while playing with toys and entertaining herself, but it's starting to get a little annoying in an adorable way :) I'll try to be better at keeping updated.

I love all the pictures of Carrie. Her curls, her and rooster, and how happy she looks with all the monitors hooked up to her. She seems like such a happy little girl!

Great pictures! She is so cute! Are you guys planning on coming to the reunion over Pioneer Day weekend? We are going to do the huge family picture thing with matching outfits! Hope you can make it- can't wait to meet Carrie!


we are hoping to! If we can make enough money to cover it than yes.
