Top of his class

On Saturday, Carter graduated to a big-boy bed, passed his car seat test & passed his hearing test. He did all of this despite the "trauma" from his...ahem, procedure.

The doctor informed of another little program they offer at the hospital. On the last night (and yes, this means Carter is practically locked in to coming home Monday) they let both parents stay in a room near the nursery with the baby to get a sense of reality while having the security of professional help hearby.

Then the next morning, the baby is discharged and they all leave the hospital (for the last time) together into a brave new world.

Very exciting!

The timing is perfect as we just have a few tiny finishing touches left for Carter's room at home. On Saturday, my parents visited and brought some homemade goodies (peanut butter cookies, mmmm) and a couple of gifts for Carter: one to wear and one to get changed in.

Dad has made most every piece of furnite we have. One piece in particular is a long, waist height dresser with a mirror mounted to the back. Considering that room in our apartment is at a premium, we thought that this dresser would be perfect to "convert" the top to a changing station while utilizing all of the already exisiting storage space for his clothes, diapers, blankets, etc.

So, Dad made the changing station add-on and it looks like its been a part of the dresser a along.

Now we just need to figure out where we're going to store all of the toys & "exercise equipment" he's been receiving.
