A baby is God's opinion the world should go on.

I'm so excited to share these photos, I'm bursting at the seams. We had a little newborn photo session with Angela Miller yesterday, and she did an incredible job capturing my little man. They're all so fantastic, I had a hard time choosing just a few to share. The one of Carter's hand holding Jeremy's ring especially tugs at my heart. Hope you enjoy.














Which one is your favorite?

I love the photo where you are holding him close to your heart and he has that precious little crooked smile. He looks so content to be in that place where he is so meant to be in.

Ummmm, I can't even begin to pick one. I swear I have NEVER seen better or cuter newborn pictures in my life! There were so many different poses and looks. And, he looks like he's full on smiling in a couple! These are AMAZING!!! They make me happy to look at. Thank you for sharing them.
I will say this....from the limited pics I've seen of you and Jeremy and such, he looks an awful lot like his Daddy. ADORABLE!

Bree said...

These photos are remarkable! They are so beautiful, there are hardly words to describe how happy they have made me. Your story/ life's journey has touched me in a way I cannot describe. I am praying and rooting for you everyday. My favorite photo is the black and white one with the baby wearing the cat with buttons. He seems so unaware and happy. Love, love that you shared these with us.

Jessica said...

I loved them all however the one of you and him in the background with the ring in view is my favorite. made me tear up some. Praying for you .

Vee, I have followed your blog since the tragedy of losing your husband. My prayer has always been for your unborn baby...that God would protect him from the emotional impact his Mama was going through with the loss of his Daddy. I look at this precious baby and I know my prayers have been answered. He is the most adorable peaceful baby. I will continue to pray for you and your precious family that peace will find you daily!!

Sara brought these up at work, yesterday and we were both "oohing" and "aaahing"! Not sure I've seen more beautiful photos. The last two are my favorite. The one of you and him is gorgeous.

I am so thankful for this very shining light in your life.

Ashley Tinius said...

They're all beautiful, but my fave is the last one. So precious!

Anonymous said...

Sorry, Lurker here, My favorite is the one of him laying down with the little smile on his face... Clearly talking to his daddy. : )

megan said...

I don't think I've ever seen a newborn propped up on his folded arms, all relaxin' looking. These are awesome, vee.

Ashley said...

Oh MY!!! It's hard to just pick ONE favorite. HE IS SO CUTE!!!!!! And every single one of these pictures are extremely PRECIOUS!!!!! You are so blessed.

K said...

He is by far one of the cutest babies that I have seen.... EVER! Congrats on your new little bundle of joy. I know that this is hard and I can't say that I would be as strong as you if I were in the same situation.

Brooke Simmons said...

The one of you holding him in the background with the ring on a string in the foreground brought a tear to my eye. Isn't funny how a picture can capture so many emotions all at the same time.

Anonymous said...

Those are so incredibly beautiful! I am going to have to go with the one with your hands and his feet and the rings. It's a lovely heart. Congrats on the adorable little man!! Lisa

Hands down the one of you and carter - the second last one. i know he's probably not smiling b/c he's still so little but you both have beautifully joyful & peaceful expressions.

These are beautiful. and the hats!! so cute.

from C to C said...

What a handsome little boy!!! I can only imagine how hard it was to pick just a few photos, they are all great, but my favorite is the 3rd one where his eyes are barely open & he's smiling at you!

Deanna said...

They're all beautiful! But if I have to pick a favorite, probably you holding him with Jeremy's ring in the foreground.

Tunes & Spoons said...

I am here from Nicole's blog and have been following you for a few months and praying so much for your sweet family.

I just love the pictures with your rings..they are so touching :)

thehappilyeverafter said...

Love the one of you holding him with his feet making a heart and the rings on his toes. Beautiful! Be blessed, be strong, be corageous, you continue to be in my prayers!

Roger P Mulligan said...

hi Vee - he's beautiful! so glad to hear things are going as they are. #2 is my favourite one - very nice! thanks for sharing so much with us all. love you honey. we remember you in our prayers always.

Sammy said...

The one with you and him. Hands down. Made me teary. Carter is GORGEOUS!

Kathi said...

Delurking for a moment - I'm a new reader, and first of all, I'm so sorry about Jeremy, your love for him shines through everything you write, and I ache with you. Second, congrats on your new sweet little Carter - he's beautiful (and born on my 17-year-old-son's birthday - great day to be born!). Third, while I loved the pictures of Carter, I really connected with the title of this post - my beautiful 6-year-old daughter was diagnosed with leukemia three weeks after my son was born. I worried so much that the leukemia and subsequent treatment would blur my first year with our new little one, but the opposite happened, and I've said the phrase "Ben just reminded us that life goes on in spite of tragedy" very often. He was a marvelous reminder daily of that, and a wonderful distraction to my sweet girl as she went through treatment. (She's 15 now and very healthy!). I hope that Carter fills your home with joy, and helps to distract from the horrific pain you're feeling.

Keeping you in my prayers,
Kathi

All of the pix are just incredible....the one with the ring in his hand makes me speechless....


The second to last one is definitely my favorite.....his face while laying on your chest shows just what you do for him....his face is one of absolute contentment and happiness...you and your family will be okay, you will go on, you will have to, for those little faces....you are so strong, and can and will do what you have to for those babies....

You are amazing, and he is beautiful.....praying for you all....for peace and for strength....

spinning plates said...

I'm torn between the one where Jeremy's ring is floating in the foreground and the black and white where you can see Carter's cord... I love all of them.

Veronica, I've been reading your blog since GCG. Thank you for sharing your life like this with all of us... it's been a blessing to see how God can carry us through our miseries. You are an inspiration to me and my girls.

They are all beautiful! I especially love the ones where Carter is smiling!

They are all so beautiful! I like the ring ones, and also the one of him in that fun little hat with the ears. I'm a sucker for fun baby hats. :)

That quote you used in the beginning of your post is one of my favorites.

He's a handsome little guy!

OMG!!! That last picture is the cutest thing EVER. I LOVE it!

Anonymous said...

Oh, Vee, I love the picture of his little hand holding his daddy's ring. It broke my heart. It really just isn't fair. That ring belongs on a different hand and it's just not fair. I'm so sorry.

Darcy M. said...

Oh my goodness....they are all so beautiful. I couldn't pick a favorite.

deardarl said...

Oh, they are all just so beautiful.
The second last one - B&W of you holding Carter makes tears well in my eyes, it's so beautiful.

The Better Baker said...

I'm speechless! These pictures are stunningly beautiful - and your precious baby boy is nothing less than perfection! He is just adorable - I can't get over the smile on his face. God is truly soothing your heartaches with the gift of little Carter's presence. May He continue to bless your socks off Dear Lady!
