2 years of marriage!

4.5 months

Carter turned 5 months old the same week Chris and I celebrated our two-year anniversary!  My parents agreed to take Carter for the night, so Chris and I were able to enjoy a long evening out on the town!  We tried Ounce steak house for the first time.  We waited at the bar to be seated and the bartender served me a perfectly shaken dirty martini with hand stuffed blue cheese olives.  Our waiter was attentive and friendly and the steaks were mouth-watering.  The macaroni and cheese with applewood smoked bacon lacked any real flavor and the sautéed mushrooms were served with an insane amount of garlic.  Maybe it was an off night for one of the chefs…

We brought a bottle of Swanson Alexis that was signed by the wine maker and gifted to me by my Mother-in-law.  We also brought a bottle of Pine Ridge, since that and the Swanson Alexis were the two bottles of wine we drank on the day the Chris proposed.  We decanted the Swanson Alexis and half of the Pine Ridge.  Y.U.M.M.Y.  We ran into Jordan Lord and her boyfriend, so we joined tables after dinner.  We ended the night with other friends and closed the bar down.  It was a fun anniversary and we spent it doing what we love to do; partying with each other and good friends.  🙂

At five months old, Mr. Carter is weighing in at 17 pounds!  He’s still the happiest baby and has almost conquered rolling over.  He can roll over on his side, but hasn’t yet figured out how to move his arms, to complete a full roll.  He’s eating rice cereal twice a day and loves to blow bubbles when his mouth is full of food!  When he’s on his changing pad, he feels inclined to tell me all about himself.  He jabbers and jabbers and looks at me as if I understand everything he is trying to convey.  I of course play along and love chatting it up with my little man.

Chris’ brother, Nick, came to visit Carter for the first time last week.  I think we may get to see him again next week!

My grapefruit season has ended.  I’m beyond sad.  I have spent the last couple of months juicing over 100 grapefruits, enjoying fresh grapefruit juice daily.  I’ve included a couple of pictures in the slide show!  Almost forgot to mention, Carter and Cameron had their first pool-side date.  She was dazzling in her yellowed ruffled bikini.  😉

Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Details of our weekend will have to wait until the next post.
