12 weeks!

Carter is 12 weeks old today and weighs almost exactly 7 pounds. Last weekend I packed up the preemie clothes and got all the newborn clothes organized -- and I had plenty. I have so many onesies that if I put a different one on him every day and then threw them away, he'd have five weeks' worth of clothes. :-P

The NB onesies fit him really well and the other clothes are a bit big. His feet get stuck up inside the sleepers, and his arms slip out of the sleeves and get stuck inside as well. It's cute to see him in things that are too big for him again.

If you'll indulge me:

This little outfit is SO adorable! This was taken in the bathroom at a restaurant, just before a diaper change.


See what I mean about his feet?

His legs aren't actually as long as they look here. His feet don't quite go down to the end!

Here he is snoozin' in the co-sleeper.

Lucy takes whatever attention she can get!

And here's a video of him all awake and cute!

We had a consultation with the surgeon today, and Carter's surgery is scheduled for two weeks from today. Because he's less than 3 months old (adjusted) they'll have to keep in the hospital overnight for observation. It should just be a straightforward surgery, though. I guess we'll see how it goes!

AWWWWWW!!! He's so cute and precious!

And no babies get their feet into those sleepers. They still want to curl up, so their legs get sucked up into the body of the suit. Sam was like that, too, even though his legs would fit into the sleeper if I held them out straight.

Oh, Carter is just so cute and precious and adorable and yummy!

Carter is so sweet! I cannot wait to see him again. He is growing so fast. It is so hard to believe how fast they do grow. From what I have read they actually grow in thier sleep! It is amazing what they learn in such a short amount of time.
Those sleepers will be too small before you can blink. I love the little overall's. He looks like a little man in them.
Give Carter a big kiss for me. I look forward to his posts everyday!

Wow, he is really growing. He is so cute and he is looking more like his Daddy. I can't wait to hold him when we get to the beach.
