Happy Very Late Birthday, Carter!

Carter is one of the most amazing people I have ever met in my life.  When I think about how lucky we are to call him his parents I just nearly pee my pants!  He's so brave.  He has gone through more in the last 17 months than I have been through my entire life.  He truly takes things like a man.  I VERY rarely see him get frustrated or down about his lot in life.  He's optimistic.  He's brilliant.  He's so darn cute without those front teeth.  He knows he's not s physically able as his friends to do things but tries to keep things in perspective. ("I know someday I will be able to ride my bike and play sports.")
Sometimes I watch what he goes through and I cry with him or for him.  Watching him struggle breaks my heart.  Not being able to take it away from him breaks it even more.  He is mature beyond his years (I'm sure I will need to be reminded of this when he's a crazy teenager) and an absolute joy to have him around.  I can't image our lives any other way than the way they are now.

How old are you?  6... I mean 7
Who is your best friend?  I have 2... actually 3... no 4.  Taeler, Mathew, Koen, and Dylan
What is your favorite thing to do?  Play Legos
What is your favorite food?  noodles
What is your favorite color?  green and blue
What do you like to do with your family?   Wii Fit and Hiking
What is your favorite toy?  Legos
What is your favorite movie?  The Avengers and Star Wars
What do you want to be when you grow up?  Scientist or Dentist
What makes you happy?  Legos
What makes you sad?  Cancer
What's your favorite show to watch?  Phineus and Ferb
What's your favorite book?  I like lots of books.
What do you love to learn about?  Science
What is the best thing about your birthday?  my friends coming over.
Where do you like to go?  Does that count in the future?  (me: sure)  DISNEYWORLD!!!
What is your favorite treat/candy?  Suckers
What do you think about before you fall asleep?  Random things
If you could meet anyone in the world who would it be?  Does Heaven count? (me: sure)  Ok, then Jesus... even though I know him but I don't really remember him so Jesus and Heavenly Father.
What was your favorite birthday present?  The "Mamelian Falcon!"  (The Lego Millennium Falcon that he got from Gigi and Granky).

Those steroid cheeks are a way of life for him.  They will eventually (in over two years) go back to normal.  When I see pictures of him like this it doesn't even look like him.  But his smile is still Carter's smile and his eyes still twinkle like they always have.
