two weeks.

On Saturday, Carsten turned two weeks old. How did that happen so fast?! It's been a whirlwind two weeks, but without the craziness that Taylor's first two weeks brought us. This child-rearing business... old hat, folks. Cake. Cake walk. Cake... sounds yummy.

Today was Carsten's two week check up. He surpassed our weight guesses and came in at a whopping 10 pounds even. And he has grown 1/4 of an inch. And his head, well, yeah, it's getting bigger, too.

Carsten is so strong, alert and silly. He grunts more than any child or pug I've ever encountered. He loves, loves, loves to snuggle and always makes us laugh when he makes his chicken or cat noises. I'm just a tiny bit smitten with this little man!

I'll have more pictures soon - have to upload them on Trask's computer since mine is slowly dying bit by bit. Oh, and maybe because we take trillions of pictures at a time...

We hope you all are well! Thanks to our dear friends for the comments, well-wishes, cards and meals! We appreciate it so very much!
