He's 4 weeks old already!

It's amazing how fast time passes. Carter's already 4 weeks old. I had him yesterday to check his poor little face and he weighed 11 pounds!! I made sure to get some pictures of him yesterday!

Picture Tag-EDITED!

I've been tagged! Here's my picture. Not too exciting. I was supposed to show the 6th picture from the 6th folder. Well, on my laptop I only have two folders so this is the 6th picture from the 2nd folder. I couldn't get to the file on my other computer at the moment.

This is our boat when it was parked at a storage lot. We wanted to find a nice, fenced, safe place to park it for the winter until we could get the side driveway done at our house.

Well, we got fenced, but not safe!! Alex went down to check on it and found out that someone had broken into our boat and stole the stereo that Alex had just put in this summer. Needless to say we were ticked! Alex took this picture along with others after that happened. That was a few weeks ago. The sad part is that it happened AGAIN! We think they came back to finish the job, they stole the new speakers too. We pulled the boat right out of there!!!

Speaking of the boat. Here's the sixth picture from my sixth file from the sixth folder. That's just how mine are stored, year, month, picture.

So I finally got to the file from my other computer where most all of my pictures are kept. This is a picture of one of my YCL's from girls camp. We took them boating before camp. This gal had the best time tubing!!! I felt bad for her because the rest of the girls didn't want to tube with her because she loved going fast and wild. If I hadn't been pregnant at the time I would have tubed with her!!

Okay, here's what you are supposed to do. Post a picture on your blog and tell the story that does with it. It is supposed to be the 6th picture from the 6th folder of pictures.

I'll tag: Kris, Allie, and Dyana

I Rest My Case!!

She's Guilty! I put Carter in the swing to check my email and he started to get fussy. This is what happens. Now Cierra's trying to do her homework while she's holding Carter. She's too funny!


I feel like I spend a great amount of time doing this. But he's sure nice to cuddle!!

Nice picture huh? I think Cierra took that one.
As you can imagine he gets held a lot around here! I lay him down to get some stuff done and if he fusses the girls are right there to scoop him up. Mason and Spencer try their hardest to make him happy without picking him up. It's hard to resist holding a cute baby!!
He's starting to find his voice and make those cute cooing sounds. There's been a couple of times where he's actually giggled in his sleep. I wish I could catch that on video! Today after he had been fed he was in good mood so I took that opportunity to take a few pictures. Poor little guy started getting that baby acne all over his face a few days ago. It doesn't seem to bother him so that's good. Carter had his first bath today! He enjoyed that nice warm water and wasn't too happy when he started to get cold. I had to make sure there was a warm washcloth over him while I was washing his head or he would get a bit fussy.

Back on schedule

Alex headed back to Bothell this week and I'm on my own, more or less. I have rides for the kids to school so that I don't have to be up and ready for the day yet. Then I have all morning to take care of Carter, get my shower and be ready in time to get Mason and Spencer from school. I'm having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. There seems like so much to do but it's all just the normals stuff I'd be doing anyway but now I have one more, very cute thing to add to my to do list.
The laundry is starting to pile up (clean and dirty) and I just can't seem to get myself to get it done. The problem with having a couple weeks of rest and recovery is now I'm on that kind of schedule.

I went to our storage unit and grabbed the baby swing for Carter. He seems to like it. I'm hoping that will help me be able to get more things done around here. He's just so much fun to hold and snuggle!! Especially in those nice fleece sleepers! Harley came home from school and noticed the swing with Carter in it and then made the comment, "that sound is going to get annoying," she was referring to the click and hum of the swing. I've already tuned it out!
Gotta love those cheeks!

Not the thumb!

Somewhere around 5 days ago I caught Carter with his thumb in his mouth. I just had to catch a picture. Thank goodness for a camera with a pop out, rotating screen on the back, it sure comes in handy. As cute as he was I DO NOT want a thumb sucker! A binky is so much easier to take away. And for your viewing enjoyment I threw in a couple other pictures too. :) Spencer always asks to hold Carter but he usually only lasts about a minute then he's done. He's happy to just sit on my lap while I'm holding Carter. Spencer's my little lap boy.

What a cutie!

It's amazing how much infants change in such a short time period. Time to take more pictures!!

Thank you, Thank you!

I just wanted to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us out since Carter was born. You know who you are :) I appreciate all the dinners, treats, gifts, rides for kids and all the well wishes. It's great to have such wonderful friends! I'm not usually one to ask for help, for whatever reason. I think I have to take myself down a notch and let others serve me. That may sound kind of weird but I think sometimes I forget that maybe we need to LET others have their chance to do service. Maybe I'm just to proud to admit when I may need help, I don't know. I only hope that I can use your examples and be of service to others also!
I am truly thankful for all your kindness!!

Carter Duane Pospical

We are happy to announce that we now have a new member of our family. Carter Duane Pospical was born on Tuesday, December 30th at 5:31pm. Duane is my Dad's name. He weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces and was 21 inches long. He has much lighter hair than his siblings did when they were born, they all had dark brown hair, Carter's is closer to a dark blonde. It will be interesting to see how his hair changes. Our pediatrician says he looks like the rest of our kids but she sees Spencer. We've been with the same pediatrician since Harley was born and we love her! Anyway, I think he looks like Spencer too.
