Carter is one lucky little boy! There have been so many people who just can't wait to love on him! I am incredibly humbled by the many friends and family who have been so supportive to us during this wonderful transition in our lives. We have had so many friends bring yummy dinners that have helped make our evenings a little less stressful, which has been tremendously helpful. I have loved having the opportunity to have our family and friends love on the little guy (and, I must confess, sometimes it is just nice to have an additional pair of arms to hold him!).
When people have asked me how we like Indianapolis, I have always said that we like it better than we thought we would. I go on to say that we thought we would like it, but that it is even better than we expected (minus the cold weather, of course...I mean, I am a southern girl, after all). After two years, when people ask that question, I still answer with the above response, but I add how many wonderful friends we have made and how that makes Indianapolis really feel like home. I can't imagine living here without the friendships that we have made...and I certainly couldn't imagine living here without having all of my "mom" friends to call and ask my silly questions. We are truly blessed. So, all of that to really say THANK YOU to our friends who have made living in Indy wonderful and have made having a baby 500 miles away from family much easier.
On a non-sappy note...one of my friends, Susie Lovekamp (check out her blog--it is linked on the right), turned me on to www.picasa.com which can help when posting pictures to your blog. If you are interested, check it out...it is how I made the collage above!

We had a big weekend in Alabama! We went to Tuscaloosa Saturday for tailgating prior to the big win over Arkansas (the first Tide comeback in the 4th quarter since 2001) and were in Decatur for a Sip and See at Debbie's house on Sunday. We will post some pictures from all of the weekend excitement soon!

Carter and Bamma
Wrigley is being a great "big sis" to our little man. She always wants to sniff and see what is going on with him, but she is always gentle with him. Dontrelle is just mad that his favorite room in the house is now occupied, so he has been spending more time outside.
Carter with Cindy, Maddie and Mia ToddWe have been so fortunate to have many friends come by and visit so that we could introduce them to Carter. He has loved all the attention (he probably gets that from his mom!), and usually stays up at night telling us all about how much he loves it!

Megan Todd and Carter (Megan and Carter were due on the same day, but Megan was born on July 30; Carter on August 27--almost a month apart!)
Please check out the following link for some pictures of our last full day in the hospital and of his arrival at home for the first time. I will also put the link over on the right side of the page under Friends' Blogs and Other Sites so that, if you want, you can periodically check to see if we have added new albums.
