Keaton was so cute when he met her! He looked at her in awe and said, "Hi baby Karter!" He wanted to hold her and give her kisses. It was so cute! Since then he's been great! He's already protective of her and just loves her to pieces!
Once we brought her home she was just soooo good! We honestly didn't even know what her cry sounded like the first 2 weeks because she was so good! I now know what her cry sounds like, but she really doesn't cry unless she's just overly tired and let's face it...I cry when I'm overly tired too. She's starting to stay awake a lot now and she looks just like Keaton did when he was a baby! Some days seem really hard with 2 kids and I wonder what in the world I ever complained about when I just had one baby to take care of! Other days everything flows great with their naps and I get a lot done around the house and feel productive. I'm hoping those really good, easy days start happening more and more! =) It's a learning process right!??!
That second week we also got hit with the stomach bug. Keaton and I had a fever and were throwing up for 2 days and that was NO FUN with a newborn around!! Thankfully we both got over that and Karter and Kyle never got sick.
At 3 weeks old we took Karter to her first Aggie Tailgate party, WHOOP!! No I'm not the type that takes my newborn to germ infested crowded places. This was just a family/friend tailgate and she slept the entire time (besides waking up twice to eat) so she wasn't being passed around to everyone and I had hand sanitizer readily available, hehe! =) We had a great time though! It was so nice to be out of the house and Keaton just loved every second of it! Not too many people could take their 2 year old to an outing from noon-7PM where they skip their nap and are outside all day but yet act like an angel and just happily play the entire time! Sorry, I had to brag a little because he was just so well behaved! He even picked up an 8 year old girl! That's right, he's got game! =)
Gig Em' Ags!!!!
So to sum things up Karter is doing great and we just can't imagine our lives without her! Having a baby is just the greatest miracle that God can give you and we're so thankful!
