Matt's second week as a resident was one of the craziest weeks we've had yet. He left at 4:30 a.m. and didn't get home until 10:30 p.m. if he came home at all (two of the nights he was on call). Carter didn't get to see his daddy at all that week. When Saturday rolled around we were sure Matt would be too exhausted to do anything with us. But he was a real trooper and was anxious to spend time with his family so we went hiking about an hour north of Pittsburgh in the gorgeous PA countryside.
As a baby shower gift my parents give each of the kids a baby hiking backpack and Carter loved his. He loves the outdoors and we're hoping for a die hard camper and hiker and if he has any Herzog in him in the inside (because he doesn't have a lot of it showing on the outside) then he for sure will be an outdoorsman.
I love seeing Carter and Matt hanging out together. It is cool to see their bond developing so strong so soon.
