That sounds good! It's great having your own homebrew, isn't it?!
As far as the high level of carbonation, sometimes that subsides a bit after it's been in the fridge for a little while. It seems like the carbonation goes more into the beer after it's been refrigerated for a couple of days. If I take a beer out and stick in in the fridge and drink it the same day, I've noticed the same thing as you. But after two days or longer in the fridge, the carbonation seems "softer" and the beer is bubblier, but the head isn't any bigger.
Now, I could just be imagining it, too. But that's what I think, anyway!
