Sneak Peek: Carter's Birth Announcements

After browsing many different websites to create birth announcements for Carter, Shutterfly definitely has the best selection to choose from.  Not only do they have the best selection to choose from, but they have excellent customer service as well.  I had created Carter's birth announcements on a day that Shutterfly was having a sale.  The next day, when I went to order the announcements, they were no longer on sale.  I contacted Shutterfly and within 24 hours received a response AND they honored the sale price. . .EXCELLENT EXCELLENT customer service!

Growing Like a Weed

Our Little Sharks

It's difficult to believe that Carter is already one-week-old.  So far, he is such a laid back baby.    Not even his first bath seemed to bother him that much.  He didn't particularly care for getting out of the warm bath, but once he was wrapped up in his shark towel, he was ready for a photo op.

First bath (at home)

Before Carter was born, Caden had to try out the shark towel.  I'm thinking we should probably buy another shark towel to prevent future "shark towel fights."

Chomp! Chomp! Chomp!

Head Over Heals

On Monday, August 8th, at 2:40 p.m., we welcomed Carter Mason Work into our family.  So far, he is an excellent baby; he is a good eater, sleeper, and hardly ever fusses.  We brought him home yesterday afternoon and are enjoying being at home and taking care him.  We are already in love.

Optimus Prime Is Going to Pre-school!

Our little Optimus Prime was accepted into pre-school.  (Thank goodness! I don't feel like filling out another 10+ page application or paying another non-refundable registration/supply fee.) Caden is ecstatic to begin pre-school.  When I told him he was accepted he said, "Okay, I'll leave in about an hour." He picked out a Spiderman backpack today and wore it around the house all afternoon.  He is waiting patiently for September!

If you push Caden's chest he will say, "I am Optimus Prime!" (If he's in the mood of course!)
