8 weeks old

Carson is 8 weeks old!

He had his 2 month check-up this morning and was a trooper. 3 shots in the legs with super long needles. Poor baby. He was literally beet red and was crying that cry that doesn't produce any sound. Until he finally manages to catch his breath then the cry becomes an ear-piercing sound that could shatter a window. Yes, my poor baby boy.

To make it worse, Dylan & Matthew also had shots today. So I had 3 hysterical boys in that tiny doctor's office. Man, did I look like the worse mom ever! 

Back to Carson. He is growing well. He is now 12 lbs and 14 oz. and 23 3/4 inches long. So about average for his age. Still, we are amazed that it is possible to almost double your weight and grow over 4 inches in 2 months.

He is smiling at us, cooing, exploring his hands and able to roll over from his tummy to his back. His brothers still love to kiss him and talk to him. Unfortunately, usually when he is trying to sleep.

I go back to work next week. The next few days will be devoted to cuddling and playing together. I will definitely miss our afternoon naps together!

very sweet. You'll have to let me know how the first week back to work goes. I'll have to post Chance's numbers. He's about the same - just slightly smaller.

Your boys are getting cuter each day. Thanks for sharing them. I check in all the time for updates (sorry I haven't commented lately!). I can't believe it's been 2 months already and you're headed back to work. Good luck!

Quyen, you must know that I've been thinking of you, Joe and the beautiful boys. Thanks so much for your card introducing Carson's arrival. Having computer troubles, should have a new one next week or soon after. Must go before it shuts down of it's own accord!! Lots of love, Elizabeth xxxxx
