Just an average boy

This morning we had Carter's two month appt. He weighed 12 lbs. 2 oz. and was 23.5 inches long. He measured right in the 50th percentile for everything so he is doing great and growing just like he should be. He did have to get several shots...I think I had as many tears as he did. By the time I put him in his car seat he was full of smiles again so that was good. We swung by daddy's work for a kiss too. :) The doctor did hear a slight heart murmur so he has to go to GR this week for an echocardiogram. Since he is growing as he should and has great color she assumes they won't find anything but she wanted to err on the side of caution. So please pray that all is okay!

It's back to work for me this week so I have a feeling I may shed more tears! I know Carter will be in good hands with his grandma's so that makes me feel better but it will still be hard! These last 10 weeks have been the best and I have enjoyed every minute with him...good thing its only a couple days a week!

Oh and my goal was to have Carter sleeping through the night and he did the last 2 out of 3 nights! He must have known my goal....little stinker!

Good luck going back to work Kel! I'll be thinking about you! And congrats to Carter for sleeping through the night! He must have known that you're going back to work and need some good rest! :)

you'll eventually enjoy your couple days away each week. it's hard the first few weeks, even when it comes to leaving the third baby. i wish i could say that get's easier, but it doesn't. this was my first week back too and i do the 2 day a week thing. it sounds like carter will be in good hands, so that's great. grandma's are the next best to mommy. i'm also glad he enjoyed the bumbo. before long he'll be sitting on his own.
