Our last little Carter baby is one year old today!
Miles Benjamin was born April 12, 2016 and we have been BUSY but oh, so happy ever since.
Miles is the sweetest boy we could have ever dreamed up. He’s everything we prayed for and more. He giggles all day long and loves nothing more than his big sister and brother.
It has been a joy to watch Julia and Mac interact with Miles during his first year. He wants to be a part of the action and do whatever they’re doing. Mac still hasn’t come around to sharing his trucks with Miles, but he’s the best big brother and loves Miles fiercely.
Julia loves reading to Miles, feeding him, blowing bubbles for him, and anything else that allows her to be the center of his attention. She’s been sweet and quite patient with him this year.
Miles isn’t walking just yet, but he sure can get where he wants to go lickety split (usually to any power outlet or up the stairs before you can blink). He’s an ornery little guy. He knows he’s cute and hams it up big time.
Staying true to his Carter roots, this boy LOVES to eat! He will eat anything and everything you put in front of him. His favorites are cheese, biscuits, pancakes, bananas, and avocado. He tore up his smash cake and would have eaten the entire thing if I hadn’t taken it away from him.
It’s hard to pinpoint who Miles looks like. I think he favors Julia so much, but every now and then I see a bit of Mac. I think he looks the most like his Daddy out of all three kids. He’s just about the most precious boy I’ve ever laid eyes on, but that’s just my humble opinion.
Miles has filled a hole in our family that we didn’t even know was there. He lights up the room and is as sweet as sugar. He usually goes with the flow and is happy to be wherever the action is. Good thing, because the third kid gets carted all over creation to keep up with the big kids.
We love you so very much, Miles. Happy FIRST Birthday, and here’s to MANY more!
