(Sorry for the hiny shots. Don't worry...I didn't leave him alone to get the camera. It is all-hands-on-deck at bathtime at our house--Nick was with him.)
The little guy loves bathtime--and has such a great time in the water. I can't wait to see him in the pool this summer. I know he is going to love it. This is him playing after his bath. I know it looks like he might be fussing, but he was not at all. He was squealing, laughing and flailing his arms.
It is FINALLY warming up here. We are thankful and just hope it sticks around!

So, what do you do with this?
All this playing with sticks makes me sleepy

At any rate, Carter got a surprise from his mom this week. I ordered him a swing to use and enjoy this summer. We decided to try it out after work/school one night this week. As you can probably tell from the pictures, he wasn't too sure about it. He wasn't unhappy, but he wasn't squealing with delight either. That could also be because he was pretty tired, so we will try again another day.
Carter is definitely on the move these days. He has used this week to perfect the crawling that he started last weekend, and he is all over the place! I was out of town for work last night and Nick said that he left Carter in his room to fix his bath water. Carter crawled from his room into the bathroom while Nick was in there. I got the pleasure of having the same experience tonight...I guess I should have known better. His teacher called me to give me an updated on him today, and she said that now that he can move, they find him in every corner of the room!
Every time I tell someone that he is crawling the next question is, "Have you baby-proofed your house?" Hmmm... I am assuming that you have figured out that the answer is no. Guess I should get on that...

It is still a bit primitive, but Carter is crawling. Yesterday was the first day that I saw that he actually got the whole arm-leg thing worked out. I think the video shows pretty well how he still goes back and forth between crawling, scooting and trying to stand up. Call it what you like, he is now mobile. My days of leaving him unattended and expecting to find him in the same place I left him are over!
