Puffs, Swimming, The 4th, & Going Round & Round!

Ooo me did we have a busy weekend!  Of course you guys know I loved having that extra day off with my sweet family.  Any working momma loves the holidays because that means another day with our little loves!  Extra days mean extra kisses, hugs, snuggles, & PUFFS! Carter is obessed with puffs.  In a week we are flying to Flordia (that should be it's own blog in itself lol) and you better believe puffs will be my saving grace!  I promise he could eat a whole container of those things in one sitting, with me helping out a little bit, strawberry apple is my favorite :).  He can eat 90 and get 16 calories. Haha, maybe I should eat those for my snacks! I'll tell ya, we don't go anywhere without our puffs...that even means the pool! 

Next: Swimming! Don't worry, I let his food settle for 30min. hehe :) He loves loves loves swimming! He likes to take baths so I knew he would love to swim.  We are very blessed that his yaya and paw-paw have a pool so Carter is able to swim whenever he wants.  He wasn't a big fan of his little float that paw-paw got him but once he got use to being in the pool he was all about it.  Carter is so so smart! While in his float he started to kick like he was dog paddling.  I learned to swim when I was 5yrs old (thanks to my big brother, who took off my floaties and told me to swim! I didn't have the choice haha) so maybe Carter love will be a early swimmer. He's 10mos old and I already think he can do everything ha!

I just melt when I see his amazing little smile...I get lost in that smile

So my extra day was in thanks to the 4th of July.  I love the 4th, it's one of my favorites.  I love history and the holiday that comes with it!  Plus my brother is a US Marine so that makes me love it even more.  I loved it a little more this year because I got a extra day with my Carter love and it was his first 4th of July.  His mimi has made it a point to get all of his "my 1st" outfits and send them to us.  I was actually surprised Carter did so well with the fireworks.  He was so so tired but he did really good! The next morning he slept till 10am! Woo hoo! His Daddy was extra happy lol!  I can't wait till Carter grows up and we can do all kinds of fun stuff together on the 4th and I can teach him the history behind it all...I know, I'm such a nerd!  My mom always made holidays fun (heck, she made everyday fun) but holidays were always extra special.  She was, and still is so creative.  I hope Carter will remember all the fun thing I do with him like I have with my momma. 
 Round & Round! Carter loves to go round and round.  His aunt "tay-tee" found this new hobby for him.  I loved hearing his big giggles as they went round and round, and of course his face afterwards was hilarious.  This is a little of what I saw...

Look at those pictures and can you imagine the sweet sounds I heard coming out of that mouth? And that is what I miss while I'm at work.  I know he's happy and having a fun day but I can't help but stare at these pictures and think that I am missing out on a lot of that.  If I could be home everyday Carter love, I promise we would go round & round and have a day filled with puffs...When he is older I hope he understands why I have to miss out on some of those giggles.  It breaks me knowing I miss out.  I wish it was different but the Lord says otherwise.  I def don't understand but He does.  It's hard for me to remember that and maybe that's why I have to wait a little longer to make my prayer come true.  As cheesey as it sounds, I know the Lord knows my heart and my passion. I pray being with my Carter love full time is the Lords way for me...
