One Month-Already?

I am very sad to report that my sweet little Carter John is oficially 1-month old!! Yes I know it came too fast and Drew and I can hardly believe that only one month ago we were blessed with another little bundle of boy joy! He is such a good baby and has had a few struggles with formula. But I am so blessed to have another perfect little man in my life. His big brother is starting to warm up to him but is still a little jealous. The last month has brought our family so much happiness and we are so excited for many to come. A few things I would like to say about my sweet little "tiny" man are
1. When he hears Drew's voice he looks all over for it.
2. In the middle of the night when I feed him he always gives me the same curious look as if to say "I kind of like it here"
3. He loves to be held! I love that I can just pack him around all day.
4. Dallin loves to talk to him. Dallin told him yesterday that he will teach him to mow the lawn when he gets big!
5. His fingers and toes are so long! Everyone always comments on how long and skinny they are.
6. When I sing "You are my sunshine." to you, you always calm down. I know what the readers are thinking because I might have sung to all of them too and they would probably start to cry.

Carter John, I love you more than you will ever know and I am so lucky to be your mommy. I think you look just like Grandpa Curt. You have already brought us so much happiness and light. Our love for you will always be unconditional. You are a wonderful addition to this family and we are so excited to watch you grow. I love you little man and I will love you always.

Thanks to my BFF!!!!!!!

So I just wanted everyone in this world to know (or just those that read my blog) that I really do have the Best Best Friend!
I had been telling my Best Friend Brittany that I wanted her to be there when Carter was born, to her that was no big deal except for the fact that she lives 3 hours away! I told her I would not be upset if she couldn't make it considering the fact that I was not exactly sure when he would be making his debut. So when my water broke at 12:45, I immediately called Drew (of course) and after hanging up with him Brit called me and asked how I was doing. I told her "Well my water just broke so do you think that it would be possible for you to come out?" With no hesitation she said "Yes! I am leaving now!" Keep in mind it was a 3 hour drive that my sweet friend had to drive. Luckily she made it in 2 hours and 20 minutes! She had plenty of time too because She got to sit there for 5 hours. After sharing the wonderful moment with us, she told us she needed to go home so that she could make it to work the next day. SHE IS A TROOPER!!! She indeed drug her sweet little daughter and made the drive home the same night!
Brit, I just want you to know how lucky I am to have you as my Best Friend! I love you and I am so glad that you got to be there for this awesome experience. Thanks for all you do for me and for always being there. I love you!!!!!!!!!!

Carter John VanDyke

Carter John VanDyke was born at 9:06 p.m. June 3 2009. He weighed in at 6lbs. 8 oz.
He is such a good baby and we are doing well. Dallin loves him already and is still a little confused about why he has not gone home to his own house. He still calls Carter-that baby. Oh well. Pictures are soon to come! Our life could not get any better. Thanks to all of our friends and family for the food, gifts and visits.
