We're now in the home stretch...I've officially made it 7 weeks past the time I delivered Carter putting me at...a very LARGE...36 weeks. And I could not be happier. I am ridiculously flaky and can not even remember the simplest tasks so this blog has just been hanging out...getting ignored. If you are still hanging on with me, I can't wait to update you all as I near the end of this pregnancy and introduce you to my newest little monster. Carter, we think, is starting to get it finally and we're incredibly excited to watch our 2 little boys grow up together! There has been a ton of stuff going on since I last posted...not to mention...the monster baby is now 2!
We can't believe it!! He is such a big boy, getting smarter...and sassier with every single day!! I will be doing a whole birthday post with plenty of updates and fun Carter stories ASAP. He has grown into such a funny little guy, I couldn't be prouder! That's all for now, hopefully my next update will be sooner than later...and my grammar will be just a little better :)
BTW- Those 2 photos are from a session we just did with photographer Julie Melka. She is amazingly talented and sweet and we could not have asked for better photos. I'll be sharing more from our session in future posts. She will be shooting the new little man when we welcome him to the world as well. Her newborn photography is phenomenal!

I think I've posted every now and then about my blogging hiatus and how I will start to keep up with it more often, and then pregnancy brain kicks in and it is MONTHS before I start up again! This time I mean business!! I'm officially ending my hiatus today, I have tons of new monster man stories and new info on our newest little monster!....Wow that is the most I've ever used the word new in one sentence, oops!...Anyway, stick with me I'm getting out of this slump NOW. Stay tuned........ :)
So it's official...the little monster is going to be a big brother!! We'll have a second little monster at the end of the summer following in his/her older brother's footsteps...and we couldn't be happier! The weirdest thing is that this baby is actually due a day before Carter was due, so we're crossing out fingers that we make it to August this time! It's a very surreal feeling to be doing this over again, I feel optimistic though! So, here's hoping for a happy, healthy...FULL TERM...pregnancy and baby! Yay!

Carter's blog was made to tell the story of a baby born 11 wks premature who grew to be the little monster baby he is today. We hope to inspire those going through the rollercoaster NICU ride and entertain you as you go on the adventure of a day in the life of a monster baby :)
