Right after her first bath.
My baby girl Hayden as of 3 days ago, looks like she grew up over night. She now looks so much bigger to me. She really has lost most of her baby look and is looking more and more like a little girl.

I automatically assumed we were headed to Urgent Care (which is much cheaper for us than ER but still $75) when Matt said, why would I ever go pay for one of those guys to do it when i could do a way better job? Well, ok then. I of course was worried about scarring our child with the pain that we were about to inflict, but no matter what I knew it was not going to be a pleasant experience.
So Matt numbed him up with two shots, this was the worst part!! Matt put Carter's head in between his legs with his legs over Carter's arms while I laid myself over the rest of his body and kept his head still. Carter was screaming and saying the saddest things. I turned my head, I couldn't watch, and cried the whole time. Hayden was worried for her brother so she was crying too. Once Carter's lip was huge and numb, Dad sewed him up while I held the IPad in a place where he could watch something while Dad stitched. It was pretty intense, but Dad did one heck of a job. I learned through all of this that I could never be a dr or a nurse. Carter is all about showing off his stitches now and I think he thinks their pretty cool stuff. He had to go show them off to all his neighbor buddies this afternoon. Boys will be boys!
But the sweetest thing of the day was when Grandma and Grandpa were leaving this evening, Carter told them, "My Dad can fix anything." Yes honey, you keep believing that.

Then around 4:00 that afternoon, Matt asked if I'd be able to handle sitting in the car because he felt we all needed to get out of the house and get a breather. I had remembered that Carter had begged about two weeks earlier to make a pile of leaves and jump in them. We don't have enough trees at our house to make leaves to do that, but we knew of a local park that had tons of HUGE trees filled wtih leaves. So we hopped in the car with the rake and headed out.
This was the most perfect place to go and play in the leaves. It literally took about 2 minutes to make a HUGE pile of leaves because there were so many! The kids were in leaf heaven.
When Matt and I got married, my Aunt Valerie told me once that even though she thought I was pretty she really hoped that we would have a child that looked just like Matt especially with his big, chocolate brown eyes. I agreed! And this picture clearly shows those beautiful, big, chocolate brown eyes.

You'd think I'd look more rested after being on bedrest for two weeks, but man I just look worn out.
Carter also decided to help out and rake up the leaves.
Wow, doesn't she look so big?!
Boys and sticks go hand in hand.
Yes, that's right I am 35 1/2 weeks pregnant at this point. I know I am not very big for how far along I am, but man this black jacket really does have a slimming down affect. It's also nice have a son photographer so that Matt and I can actually be in the same picture together. He is such a great Dad and helped to make this evening so fun!
