Happy Birthday Henry!

It seems like only yesterday that we were packing up in the middle of the night and heading to the hospital, ready to welcome the newest addition to our family. A year later, it’s hard to remember where all the time went. Between health scares and helmets, Henry has gone from cute and cuddly to…

Swimming Lessons!

With spring here and summer around the corner, it’s about time for the pools to start opening in a few weeks. With that in mind, these past few months have been a good time to get Carter reacquainted with the water, by signing him up for swimming lessons. Carter has always loved the water, and…

Ice Skating!

Living in Minnesota, there seem to be ice skating and hockey rinks everywhere you look. One of the true signs of winter is when the local park gets flooded and setup for this, including most of the ones near us. After visiting these rinks a few times, Carter asked if we would take him ice…

All-Around Athlete

My quest to mold Carter into a 10-sport athlete continues. Most recently, Carter has taken a liking to tennis and golf. His hand-eye coordination is getting quite good, but I hesitate to put a real golf club in his hand, for fear of what he might break with the ferocity of that swing. Golf Tennis

One Man Band

Who needs drums when you have a set of mixing bowls and some plastic spoons? Between singing, dancing and now instruments — Carter is working on some musical talents that he must have got from his mother — along with the lyrics to his version of Jingle Bells.

Frosty the Snowman

This past weekend, we spent some time putting up our holiday decorations around the house and setting up the Christmas tree. To get us in the holiday spirit, Carter performed a rousing rendition of his favorite Christmas carol — Frosty the Snowman. This wasn’t the first, nor will it likely be the last, time we have heard him sing this song, but I think the dance number brought it up a whole nother level.

I Like Snow!

It seems way too early in the year, but we got our first measurable amount of snow in the Twin Cities last night. While it wasn’t the blizzard that it seems someone is always predicting, it was still enough to coat the yard and trees. Carter could hardly contain his excitement while getting dressed and eating breakfast, as he kept asking me when he could go outside and play in the snow. Sure enough, as soon as we got out the back door, he ran to the middle of the yard and started eating the snow, and all I could do was watch. Judging from his initial reaction below, Allison and I could be in for a pretty fun winter. At least we know Carter is looking forward to it!

Climbing Machine

It’s amazing how much Carter has changed in the past year, especially at this age. A little over a year ago, his days at the park were somewhat low key and relatively uneventful. Fast forward to today, and he can’t get enough of all the obstacles around him. As evidenced in the video below, he…
