Wanted: As many friends as possible

The amazing thing about Carter is his ability to want to be best friends with anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a 2-year old at the park ("hey friend, come play with me) or a down syndrome girl at McDonalds that he had never met (cutest little girl, and Carter came up to her and grabbed her hand and said, 'Hey, do you want to ride this slide with me, come on, lets go"...and off they went up the stairs to the slide. They did this countless times over the course of 30 minutes) to our older awesome kid neighbors Zoe and Ezra and Josh in our neighborhood...Carter would ask any of them to come over to our house and play the wii or jump on the tramp every single day if I let him. He just makes friends. He just wants to play. Our neighborhood is terrific as he has a great friend next door in Zach, and 10 other kids in his grade in school so he is set with having friends to hang out with.

With all that said, it would be hard to beat his two best buddies (and both are his cousins) in Hope and Necie. Rarely a day passes by where Carter doesn't ask to see them. I will now have to convince my sister and sister-in-law to let me have Carter move in with their families 2-3 days a week so that he could be really happy.
