Just Starting...

So I have decided to give this blog thing a try. I Love reading other people's blogs, so I thought it was time to make one for my own. Webb and I welcomed our miracle little boy, Carter on Feb. 24, 2009. He is 10 weeks today!!! Wow how time has flies when you are having fun!! Carter man has Myleomeningocele Spina Bifida and had surgery to repair his spine and a shunt placed two days after birth and everything went smoothly. I will explain later exactly what spina bifida is and what all it entailed.

Well 1 thing that our little guy does like a champ is EAT!!! He also is a great sleeper at night, which I am very thankful for!!! He wieghed in at 6lbs, 8oz at birth and was 20 inches. Well at his 2 month check up he weighed 12 lbs 2 oz!!!! And he was 22.5 inches. He is growing and changing way to fast and I cherish every minute I spend with him!!!

Two of Carter's favorite things to do is go on walks in his stroller and bath time!!! I am also very lucky in that I am able to stay home with him for 16 weeks, which means I only have 6 weeks left!! I wish that I could hit the jack pot and not go back!!!! Well I am off to feed this little man, AGAIN, lol. I will try to update often, esp. pics!!! (bc I think so far I have taken like 5000) haha!! I have added a couple of pics to show you how much he has changed the last two months!!
