9 month stats!

Keegan had his 9 month appointment today!!

Here are his stats:
Weight- 21 pounds and 9 ounces, 54%
Height- 29 inches, 59%
Head- 18 1/2 or 47 cm, 85%

Keegan has really slowed down with his weight and height, I thought for sure he would be taller....I know his Dad was really hoping for a TALL basketball player. His head is not surprise to me. The Dr. said that his head took a big jump, and it surprised her how much it grew. I told her she should see his Dad and brother, she said then it made sense! Rileys head used to be so big it was almost off the one time I remember them saying that if it got any bigger they possibly would check for a brain tumor....HA, wasn't funny then, but it is now to look back at!!!

Look at my teeth!!

These aren't the best pictures, but the only ones I could get with him smiling!! He looks like such a big boy with all of his teeth! He finally stopped witht he army crawling and is pretty much up on all fours and getting into anything!! He loves to get into the TV, he will crawl up to it and turn around right before he is about to touch it and look at you with his little smirk like "I know I am not suppose to be doing this" and then you tell his NO and he laughes at you!!! He goes in this Thursday for his 9 month checkup (even though he is almost 10 months!!) so I am sure I will post with his stats!!
Riley is doing well too, got his report card last week and it is no surpirse how well he is doing!! Keegan is going to have some tough shoes to follow. Riley is in his first play on Friday, I am SO EXCITED to go and see it!!! GO RILEY!!

A hot dog nose and two eyes made out of grapes...

The boys and I took advantage of a nice winter day today and played outside and built a snowman!! It was very interesting....the eyes are made with grapes and the nose is a hotdog and his smile is some fritos! The snow wasn't as soft as I thought it was so it was a little hard to make the snowman!! Riley and I were building it and we turned to look at Keegan and he was facedown in the snow, I ran over there thinking he fell....well, he sat right up when I got there so I walked away to finish and turned around and there he was again, facedown. He would sit up and laugh, he must of liked that cold snow on his face, along with eating it. Towards the end of our adventure outside Keegan realized that after awhile, the cold we finished up so Keegan could get inside and warm his little face and hands, Riley of course stayed out for another hour to play with some friends, he had enough 'MOM' time. I hope the weather can stay this nice for the rest of the winter!! Wishful thinking, I know!!

The missing piece

This little boy is the missing piece to our family, a piece that would make us a family of 5 and be complete. Chris, the boys and myself were shopping in Walmart one day and who do you think we passed? It was Carter. It was one of the most emtional days of our lives, to be standing so close to your son and not be able to do anything about it. And try to comfort your little 6 year old son who had tears streaming down his face because he wanted nothing more then to give his big brother a hug and mostly....introduce himself. This has been an emtional rollercoaster for all of us, Chris especially. We have been trying to get Carter in our lives for quit sometime, but because Carter was adopted by his Grandparents we aren't so sure it is possible to get any sort of custody and the way the legal system works it makes it that much more difficult. I know there is a lot of our family out there that is curious to see what Carter looks like, so I wanted to post this picture that Grandma Lisa found on a certain website....
There isn't a day in our house that we don't think about him and wish that he was here with us. Someday he will be with us, I am sure of it. It may take a little time, but I know in my heart we will be a family of 5.

That is how many teeth Keegan has now!! A couple days after his two bottom teeth came in the top four followed!! No wonder he has been crabby lately!! So cute though, I will have to post some pictures tomorrow!! I walked into his room this morning and he was laying there with a big smile and all I could see was his top teeth!! What a big boy now!!
