Hello world!

FamilyHello!

We’ve started this blog for a couple reasons:

1. We’re using this as a way to keep everybody updated about our lives.

2. We’re using this as a diary for our kids to have one day. 

 

Carter is now 6 weeks old, 10lbs 9oz big, & 22 inches tall. At birth he was 7lbs 15oz & 20 inches tall. A few things Carter loves:

  • Eating … he will eat all day long if I let him!
  • Sleep … when he’s not fighting it.
  • His daddy … William has the touch of making Carter smile! It’s such a sweet smile too.
  • One more thing … being outside. He’ll be crying and all I have to do is walk outside and the cries stop instantly! William says that’s because Carter is already an outdoorsman. 

He is such a good baby. At night, he sleeps really well. Usually only wakes up once to eat. The past couple weeks, he has been making eye contact, focusing, & following things with his eyes. This week he’s been “talking” more with his cooing sounds and also been smiling.

Among the many, these are a few great things about our life right now:

  • Watching our family & friends love Carter has been so amazing to see. It’s really made me love those people in a different way. (Thank you family & friends…you know who you are!)
  • Carter has a cousin named, Cameron. Cameron is 11 days older than him and they are best buds! They have play dates regularly and I can’t wait until they really know each other. It was such a gift from God that Katie & I got to be pregnant at the same time. (No, we did not plan it or even tell each other we were trying!) That’s why I say it’s a gift from God. We’re so excited for our boys and to watch them grow up together. 
  • Carter has many friends! He spends lots of time with our church babies. There were about 6 of us women who were pregnant at the same time and had babies within 4 months of each other. Carter is the youngest.
  • It’s so much fun to see what he’ll do in 11 days (so to speak) by watching Cameron. And fun to see what he’ll do in 2-3 months by watching Enoch, Hudson, & Georgia. 

On a personal note, I’ve fallen more & more in love with my sweet husband watching him love & take care of our baby.

    Jenet, I love that you are doing a blog! I love being able to catch up on people’s lives and see pictures through their own blogs. The pictures of Carter are so great. Enoch is the same as Carter is with not wanting to sleep and loving the outdoors. Any time he’s crying all I have to do is step outside and he immediately stops, isn’t it great!
