GROWING baby!!

As of Tuesday, Carson had gained 1 whole pound since leaving the hospital! That's 16 ounces in 9 days! We are SO glad he is such a good eater; a true barracuda. :)

Carson is also growing mentally. He has black and white flashcards, as well as black shapes that adorn his bassinet to accommodate his developing vision. He studies them intently.

I think Rick looks too young to be a dad in these pics. Sometimes we say we are babies having babies. (Also, Rick just got his 2nd acceptance to med school... Medical College of Wisconsin.)

And I am doing... ok with the whole never-sleeping-more-than-two-hours-at-a-time thing. Carson has been eating even more often today, like every 1.5 to 2 hours, so a growth spurt is probably coming. We look forward to more chubs and to him growing into all his clothes!

Yay for good eating! The pic of you and Carson sleeping is PRECIOUS of both of you. Page, you are a trooper. That first month or so was super hard on me sleep-wise.

And congrats to Rick on his second acceptance! You guys deserve multiple choices.

I'm so glad to see a picture of you sleeping. I had a hard time sleeping at all in the beginning. And after exhaustion sets in there is nothing else much you can do. WAY TO MAKE A CUTE BABY!
