- Carter had his first really good swear word this week, courtesy of Mama. I don’t even remember what inspired it now, but Glenn and Carter were going upstairs, and I was closing up downstairs for the night. I think I dropped something on my toe, or stubbed my toe, or something painful like that, but I yelled “F**K!!!” really loud, and then heard a little parroted “F**K!!” from upstairs. Glenn and I both just about died laughing. Is this something we write in his baby book?? Guess it’s officially time to watch my language.
- Glenn was in the office and I was lying in bed, exhausted, but Carter was nowhere near ready to sleep. He ran helter skelter down the hallway, screaming “aaaaaaaagggghhhhhh!!!!” at the top of his lungs, then into the bedroom and over to me and said “Hi!” then “aaaaaaaaaggggggghhhhhhh!” down the hallway to the baby gate by the office and said “Hi!” to Glenn, then back and forth about 20 times, screaming and laughing the whole time. Eventually he burned off enough steam to slow down and go to bed!
- Carter likes to play with Glenn’s big Maglite flashlight, and he’s learned how to turn it on and off himself. We were lying in bed at bedtime the other night and he would turn it on and say, “There it is!” then off and say, “Where did it go??” He did this over and over again, then turned it on and said, “There’s the moon!
Milestones: I’m in my 3rd trimester, woo hoo! Collin is about 2 pounds and 14.5 inches long. He’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals and opening and closing his eyes. His brain is very active now (going to be smart like his brother!), and his lungs are finally developed enough that he could make it on the outside now with help.
