1 year is around the corner!

The guilt has been getting heavier and heavier, finally leading me to sit down and catch you all up to speed.  Carter is eleven months and is the speediest crawler I have ever seen.  His crawling days have been fun but I think we are about to see the last of them in the near future.  Carter has started walking with the help of his push-cart.  When he walks with it he’ll take a couple of steps and then turns to us with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen. It’s as if he is so proud of himself that he can’t contain his enthusiasm and wants to make sure Mommy and Daddy are watching him. Chris and I eat it up – every second of it!!

The little munchkin has twice as many teeth as all of his friends his age. The doctor told us that all kids get their teeth at different times but I think it’s hysterical that mine got his early.  It’s only funny because he still doesn’t have a full head of hair but he does have a full set of teeth! – Four up top and four on the bottom to be exact.

We still make most of his food and serve it to him pureed.  Wether it’s homemade soup or a filet of salmon, put it in the blender and Carter loves it. He eats all his veggies and meat but LOVES his Cheerios like you would not believe.  It’s very entertaining to watch him concentrate on picking up one cheerio at a time.

Chris has hired two full-time employees and Big Red Dog is crushing it! Although he’s putting in lots of hours, the company is growing and deals are getting done! Real estate has kept me busy as well and I’m proud to finally have my new website go live! I spent a good while working with a fabulous web developer in Florida, James Savino.

Lots of events have come and gone.  Carter was a tree frog for Halloween! I flew to Dallas for my best friend Corrie’s 30th birthday and then flew to Houston for my sorority big sis’ wedding.  Amira’s family hosted a gorgeous wedding at the Four Seasons downtown and I got to catch up with sorority sisters I hadn’t seen since college. I also drove to Corpus to celebrate Elena and Mariana’s 30th birthday with all the Corpus girls that I dearly miss! We spent Thanksgiving Eve eating Mexican food with good friends and spent the next day with both our families. This year will always go down in the books as the last time A&M thought they had a chance. We are forever the champions – Hook’em Horns!!

We recently hosted our annual Weigand wine tasting. With 55 guests, it was a success!  Everyone brought a bottle of wine and an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots. We are still in the party planning mode as Christmas is right around the corner. More importantly, we only have 2.5 more weeks until Carter turns one!!!!!! Details on the party to come.
