I'm sorry, I just can't contain myself tonight. I just have to say to the world, I really think Carter & Tay are some pretty cute chilluns. I know, I'm biased. But still. Carter's a little mischevious (which he gets from Corinne, of course), but when he's sleeping or watching TV, he's just so darn lovable! It makes ya' wanna tackle the kid and plant a big wet one on his cheek just so you can see him smile real big and say "eeeeeeeeeeew", followed by some serious cheek-wiping action onto his shirt sleeve. And if I'm lucky, he'll turn to me, point to me with his little 3-year-old finger and say with a big smile, "You're the buddy!"...which is his own little term of endearment that he came up with all by himself. I think it's the closest he gets to actually saying "I love you" in his own words.
And Tay...well...she's still in that phase where EVERYTHING she does is cute...but even if she weren't, she'd still be really cute when she's sleeping. I love how she crawls around the house. She has two speeds: normal crawl, and 2nd-gear crawl (for when she's really excited). Both crawls involve a lot of diaper swaggin'. It's pretty cute. Trust me. And I love how she just stares people down. In church, at stores, at other people's houses...everywhere. People come up to her and make all the gaa-gaa goo-goo noises and pinch her cheeks, but she doesn't move a muscle. She just stares at them. Right in the eyes. And studies them. Completely emotionless (which she gets from me, of course - ain't that the truth) and expressionless. I love it! Plus, her noises are absolutely adorable. She moans like a cat when she's tired and squaks like a crow when she's happy. Music to my ears!
I LOVE MY KIDS!
