1 month old

It's hard to believe that Audrey is already a month old. She's a good eater and is already weighing in at 7 lbs. 9 oz. We're hoping that will bring more sleep for mommy soon. Carter's been a real sweet big brother and we are proud of him for how he's handled the change. Some of the things he enjoys to do are; singing to her, helping with her baths, giving her her paci and holding her. He doesn't go to bed without giving her a kiss goodnight. As usual he never misses out on a photo op. Carter also thinks he's a super hero lately. Every day he dons one of his costumes and runs around the house and yard saving the world. He'll be happy to find out that I've ordered him a spiderman cake for his birthday.

Thanks to all our visitors

We want to thank all our visitors over the past month. We enjoyed them all and already miss everyone. Carter is especially missing the extra attention and all the presents! Our first visitor was Grandma Aprahamian. She arrived early for us in case Audrey decided to make her appearance early. Chuck and I got to go out to dinner just the two of us one last time before Audrey was born. Grandma was a big help with Carter and we really appreciated her help while we were in the hospital. Before she left we took Audrey on her first outing to the zoo. Carter had a great time and got to ride the train for the first time. Our next visitors were Grandma Debbie and Tita Angela. Carter enjoyed dyeing Easter eggs for the first time (and did a great job). We found our bridesmaids dresses for Amy's wedding. Tita Angela did Audrey's first photo shoot while they were here. Before we knew it, it was time for them to make the long drive back up to Wisconsin. Last but not least, Auntie Kate and Todd came to visit for a long weekend. The guys got to go golfing (Carter got upset that he didn't get to go along) and the girls were able to fit in some shopping. Thanks again to everyone.

Audrey Stella

We would like to welcome Audrey Stella to our family. She was born March 28th. We went into the hospital in the morning to be induced. To my surprise I was already having contractions but didn't even know it! It was another quick delivery with a failed attempt at an epidural.
We are all doing great. Carter is a proud and sweet big brother. He loves to help in any way he can. We'll see how he adjusts when all our visitors are gone.
