On August 20th Carter turned 3! He has come a long way in 3 years. He currently weighs 28lbs and is 33 1/2 inches tall. He loves to read, watch Veggie Tales, Cars and Toy Story. He loves trucks and anything with wheels. This was an extremely tough year for Carter. He recently started walking again with assistance from his walker. We are so proud of him! He is the strongest little boy I know. Carter has taught us more than we could have ever imagined and we are honored God chose us to be his parents. Happy 3rd Birthday Carter!
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalm 139:14
We pray it will not be long before we are chasing you around again.
Happy 3rd Birthday sweet angel. Your life has been nothing short of a miracle. Mommy and Daddy are SO proud of you! We love you more than you will ever know! To God be the Glory for all that he has done!
I know I have been a little absent in the blog world. This time, no news is good news! We have been enjoying life to the fullest! Carter's brace came off of his legs on August 2nd. Since the brace came off, Carter has been standing with his walker. He has recently started crawling. He is all over the house, and we are loving it!!! We did find out that Carter will need to have another surgery this September. We were hoping it could wait a little longer, but unfortunately it can not. He will be having another spinal surgery, and he will have to lay on his stomach afterwards. Thankfully, it is not nearly as intense as the surgery he just went through. We should only have about a week hospital stay. Any Spinal surgery is a little scary, but we know God has got this.
Knowing that his days at home are limited, we have spent the past few weeks allowing Carter to enjoy life as much as possible. He went to the movies for the first time last week to watch Disney's Planes. He absolutely LOVED it, and he sat through the entire movie. It is hard to believe that Carter will be turning 3 on Tuesday. Brandon and I both decided that instead of a Birthday Party this year we would take him to the Global Wildlife Center in Louisiana. It was a great decision! Carter absolutely LOVED it!!!
Thank you all SO much for all of the continued prayers and love for our family. We are overly blessed! I will update more on Carter's upcoming surgery later. I want everyone to see how much Carter is loving life right now! Our God is great!!! As always... To Him be the Glory!!!

The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. Zephanian 3:17
