A family of 4!

Carter is 2 weeks old (as of yesterday)! We are making the transition to a family of 4 and doing well. We've been blessed with wonderful support from family and friends that have helped make it a smooth process. Cooper is doing well and is so proud of his lil' brother. Carter is a sweet lil' baby so far. We had his 2 week appt yesterday and he is now 8lb 11oz (he was 8.1 at birth)! We are staying close to home with the weather being so cold and right in the middle of flu season. We are functioning on lil' sleep and taking naps when we can. Carter is consistently eating every 3 hrs during the day and 4/4.5 at night. Here are picts from our 1st two weeks with Carter here! Enjoy!
