1 week check up

One Week Old!
Today Carson had his 1 week check up and his first visit to the doctor's office.  He measured 21 1/2 inches long which is the 90th percentile for height...Travis said he's going to take after me for height..ha ha!
He also weighed 8lbs 5 oz.  which is 1 oz. more than his birth weight so we are headed in the right direction! He had a bit of jaundice in the hospital but it's gone now and Dr. Larson said, "he's lookin' good"  That was encouraging for us to hear and we look forward to seeing her again next week!

Today was also Carson's first play date!  Lucas Nelson came over for some time to "hang out" together.  Lucas is 3 months old and a cutie pie!  He spent the day jabbering and smiling and teaching Carson all about life!  What a difference 3 months makes!  Lucas seemed huge in comparison to Carson.
Carson was tuckered out after all the day's events! Let's hope he sleeps well tonight! :)

Random Photos

Travis, Parker and I have been enjoying our new addition this week!  Carson has made a huge difference in our family for the good!  Here are some odds and ends photos of this week.
Real funny daddy! 
Proud Papa and son! 
Look Mom, Dad is super strong and can carry us both....but this isn't super comfy...down..down..down.


These ADORABLE shirts were made by a friend of mine as a baby gift for Carson!  Aren't they cute?  She has a great display out at Hawthorn craft mall of different baby items and also does custom orders!
Go Team Stecher!

No sleeping during the game Carson! 
Awww drats, you caught me! 


Happy 4th of July!

Carson is 1 week old today!

Having story time with dad.

Are we going to see fireworks dad?

The great thing about having a baby so close to the 4th is a lot of really cute 4th of July clothes! :)

On Sunday Misty's family came over for a short visit. Unfortunately, this tired mommy and daddy forgot to charge the camera and it died shortly after these photos!

Saturday Travis's sister and family made the trip from the Des Moines area to meet Carson. It was great to see everyone and we look forward to getting together soon.  If Travis and I are brave enough we might try a trip to Des Moines before we go back to school.
Annica was quite smitten with Carson and Aunt Heather wanted more time to cuddle!

Parker was a big help opening Carson's gift.

Grandma and Grandpa with Carson.
