Tornado Warning

The Little Tornado. That's Carter's nickname and has been since he started crawling around 9 months old. That being said, you can imagine what my house looks like some days. I've said many times that it's a good thing he's so darn cute...

These are looks he's given himself in the last few days. I laughed so hard when I found him in the first look that Britney thought I had lost my mind. Then he rolled his eyes when he saw Carter in his favorite purple hat (it's Ashlyn's) and the pink princess slippers.

The second picture was after Carter somehow came across a Sharpie that had been left out on the counter and decided he needed some tattooing. It's times like this that I hold onto the first picture - to remind me why I shouldn't kill him.

By the way - my son does have clothes. This is a phase we're going through called potty training and his favorite part is taking off ALL his clothes to go to the bathroom. Somehow, they never seem to make it all back on when he's finished.

Yep, that's my precious grandson. My nickname for him since he was little was the "bull in the china shop" but he is a little tornado sometimes too! Nevertheless, I love him dearly. When I looked at that first photo of him in the purple hat I saw for the first time just how much he looks like Ashlyn in the face (and it's not because he has on those princess slippers either). I can't wait to get my arms around the two of them next week. Thanks for always keeping us updated with pictures so we can see those little faces, even when they are "in trouble"!! Hugs and kisses to everybody.
Love you guys,
Mom

Oh my goodness.....I see what I have to look forward to. At least I don't have any girl's clothes around the house for him to put on!! Those pictures are adorable. He looks so old! It is so funny how totally opposite he and Nathan look. Although I guess you and I don't favor too much either!! Can't wait to get the boys together in a few months! Give them kisses for me!

He is waaaaaay tooooo cute! Somehow every kid always finds a Sharpie at some point in their lives. I agree with Jill--he looks so much older! And with Judy--I see Ashlyn in him, too. Seems to have lost the baby look and become a little boy. What fun he must be! Thanks for posting the pictures. I look forward to checking your blog every day for updates.
Love you all,
Marla

Ahhhhh, boys. I tried to get federal aid to help with "Hurricane Andrew". But, it was a no go, they didn't think that he could really cause THAT much damage. I felt like his guardian angel breathed a sigh of relief at the end of each day. I know I sure did.(and sometimes still do)
Love,

He is SOOOOO cute. I can't believe how much older he looks. Allen keeps saying that I need to mail you guys his special hat from when he came to our house but I told him that I didn't want Britney to hate us! Tell everyone Hello!

Okay, so in that first picture of Carter in his purple hat and dalmation t shirt...he looks so much like you. Atleast to me. I thought it was cute.
