Carter (3.5 months Old & Quickly Growing)

Many of you have sent us messages asking for updates about our family and Avery's little brother Carter.  We want to thank you again to for loving Avery and continuing to care about our family.  Below are some recent photos of Carter and don't forget, if you haven't already done so today (or in a while), tell someone you know about Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) or reach out to an SMA family in your area and ask what you can do to help them because you never know how it might positively impact their lives or this disease.

It's amazing to us how much Avery & Carter look alike in their profiles.

Carter's a happy morning (pretty much all day)
baby just like his big sister!
Just like Avery, it doesn't take much to get Carter to smile big for you.  The following photos were taken about a month ago and all it took was mommy's comfortable shoulder and daddy's funny facial expressions and noises.

We just wish he liked traveling in his car seat more.

He smiles big and promotes big smiles in return :-)

And what's life without a little laughter every now and then?
