As we draw nearer to Carter's one year anniversary of being HOME...I am constantly reminded of the amazing strides that this boy has made.  It's easy to get bogged down with 'he can't do this yet...' or 'when will he do this...'.  The other day, I was reminded just how far he's come.

This is just one of his amazing changes - and it's a very small one.  But cute.  Darn cute.

So I'll remind you that this is how Carter used to enjoy his apples.....

And this is how he enjoys them now....

Small achievement, but so very big at the same time.

This is just a tiny, itty bitty goal that Carter has been working on since he's been home.  Not 'to eat an apple whole' - but to see mama eating her apple whole, and translate that picture in his brain to eating HIS apple whole.  And then taking the apple in his hand, realizing that in order to eat it like mama he has to put it to his mouth and take a bite.  And another.  And another.

Doesn't seem like such a small achievement anymore, does it?

Little boy growing & changing in so many ways.  We are so, so blessed.

One Thing I Know For Sure: An apple a day.....  ;)


  1. Well, I think that's huge!!! I'll tell ya, I'll be shoutin' from the rooftops if/when J ever does that! I still cut the peels off for Elijah as I'm afraid he'll choke on them (and then puke) with his gag reflex getting worse. :-( You go Carter!!!

  2. cutest. apple pictures. EVER :) GO Carter!

  3. Oh my goodness! He is just sooooooo cute! And I think that it's a big deal. I don't even eat my apples whole. I like to cut them up!!
