We Made It!

Well, we all survived my first week back to work... and we had many obstacles thrown at us. I feel much more confident now, especially knowing that it will probably never be as hard as it was last week! Dave had the flu ALL week, so basically I felt like a single working mom! But we survived and even managed to have a family day on Sunday. Carter and I watched Dave do some gardening, then we all went to El Torito for a delicious dinner. It was the first time we have gone to a sit-down restaurant and I was nervous... Carter, being the best baby in the world, slept the whole time and was pretty content. He is definitely growing bigger and becoming more aware of what's going on around him. Harmony and Jesse bought him a bouncy chair that has forest animals hanging from it. He finally is starting to interact with the animals (I call them his friends.) He smiles and reaches for them and makes all sorts of cute noises. It's so adorable!
Carter has also discovered that he has a tongue, and sticks it out all the time!

Here he is in a cute outfit from his Grandma:

And finally, this is a picture of all of us last night... exhausted from our long week!

I'm so glad you made it through your first week of work. Everything is so much harder when you're juggling a newborn; grocery shopping, cooking dinner, working, even showering sometimes can be a challenge. Celebrate every little accomplishment. Love the pictures too! Carter is beautiful.
