Sorry It's Been So Long!

Andy and I have been horrible about keeping up our blog on Carter. I am going to try and do a better job at it...I promise!! What's new: Carter had his one month check-up on January 23rd. His stats are amazing. He weighed 9lbs 7 oz and was 22 inches long. He definitely is putting on weight. We went back to the dr's a week later because we thought he had a rash on his head...turns out our poor baby has baby acne. So sad...that dr's appointment was exactly one week later and they weighed him again and he was already at 10lbs 2oz. I think I have a good milk supply and this baby loves to eat!! Carter's Uncle Matt and Steph came out to visit the weekend of January 30th. It was great to see Matt and meet his girlfriend Steph. She's Italian just like me. :) It was also wonderful they got to finally meet Carter, they were perfect with him...While they were here we took them to Pike's Place on Thursday, which was a first for Carter and Steph. We also visited the first Starbucks and had coffee (Chai for me). Carter started to get grumpy after a few hours so we decided to trek back home and play rummy cubes! Friday, we lounged around and then went and had an "adult" only dinner at the Met. mmmmm....It was delicious, but we sure missed our little guy! Saturday, we went wine tasting and Carter did great. I think he loves the smell of wine. :) They left on Sunday and we were sad to see them go! Hopefully we'll be seeing them again in June when we head out to Indiana. Lastly, I started work again this week. It's been a weird adjustment not being home during the days with Carter, but we are lucky to have dad home taking care of him... Below are pics of Carter around 5 weeks of age (I'm a bad mom and can't remember when I took them...)! Over the next couple of weeks we'll be posting a lot more pics since we will be having lots of family in town from Indiana and we have Carter's baptism on the 14th! Love and miss you all, Karen, Andy and baby Carter
