2 1/2 weeks old!

Carson is about 2 1/2 weeks old and I can't believe has been here for that long. He is such a good little boy. We are starting to get somewhat of a routine down. He usually only gets up once a night to eat. It has been pretty nice. Don't get me wrong we have our nights when he is up almost all night, but for the majority he sleeps really well. I'm really sad that I am going to have to go back to work. I never thought that I would want to be a stay at home mom, but I'm starting to see why people don't want to come back to work. I love being at home with Carson and sometimes just watching him while he sleeps. Staying at home is not a possibility for me right now. Maybe when Zack finishes school I can stay home.

In other news....our chihuahua Gus had to have some pretty serious surgery this past week. He started acting funny about a week after Carson was born. I went and saw him at the duplex and he acted a little better, but by the end of last week he still was not acting like himself. Zack took him to the vet and it was decided that he had a pinched nerve. Saturday, Gus' back legs stopped working. He didn't move them at all. Our vet is closed on Saturdays, so we had to wait until Monday morning. Zack called me when he got done at the vets office on Monday morning and told me that things didn't look good. The vet told him that we could either take Gus to a surgeon in Austin for emergency surgery or we were going to have to make a decision about putting him down. We decided to take him to the Austin vet. He had his surgery and got to come home yesterday. He has a 6 inch incision on his spine and is having to do some serious rehab. We take him back in 2 weeks to have the stitches removed and he will see the physical therapist that day as well.

For everyone who is keeping up with the house....We are making progress. It is not enough to move in yet, but it is progress. I don't go over there as often anymore, mostly bc of Carson. We have been staying at my parents house since Carson came home from the hospital. It has been amazing the help that we have gotten. My parents are saints for taking us in, and even more of saints for taking our dogs in as well. I love being here, but it's hard at the same time. I feel like my dad is going crazy. He is a very organized person and with a baby you can only be so organized. All of Carson's stuff is driving him crazy. I'm sure that he is ready for his life to go back to normal. I really wanted to be moved into our house by the time I go back to work, but I'm just not sure if that is going to happen. It would be great if we were, but if we're not we have a great place to stay.

Here are Carson's two week pics!

I think that his hair is getting a little lighter. He is such a cute little boy...I'm a little bias though.
