We survived...Carter is here!


Carter Jackson King is here!


Born Tuesday, February 8th @ 9:17 am


Weighing 8lbs. 15oz.


20.5 inches long


His brother and sister are completely smitten


And I survived.

Thank you all for the overwhelming number of prayers that went up on our behalf. They were answered and Jeremy blessed me with his presence and a calming numbness that took over me today (or is that the drugs?) Either way, I'm thankful.  I've never been so exhausted in my entire life, so I will update soon.

What a beautiful, beautiful boy. And almost nine pounds! No wonder you're exhausted!

I'm sure his daddy is so proud. He has a lot to be proud of. I wish he could be there to tell you himself.

I'm not sure how I stumbled upon your blog this morning, but I did and I've read over your story for the past hour. I can't even begin to imagine what you've been having to go through. I will be praying for peace, comfort and guidance for you, your two beautiful children and brand new addition. By the way, Carter is perfect! And from what I can see, he has one of the strongest, bravest mothers I know. Enjoy your new bundle of joy.

He's beautiful, and I agree with the last comment. How could God not have big plans for him and for you all? We don't very often know why things happen, but praise God when we can see the good that can come out of it.

I have never seen a more beautiful picture of a mom holding her newborn than that one right there! And you look gorgeous! Your mascara is perfect and your hair is flawless. You make one of those cap things look good haha. Your older two look adorable holding Carter, they will be a great big sister and big brother. I'm glad Jeremy showed up and you had unexplainable calmness yesterday. Praying for more of that to come your way!

Congrats girl! Such a beautiful baby boy :) I love that last pic of them kissing Carter. I have been thinking about you and hoping the birth went well! So glad to hear everything was fine. I'm so glad you received this blessing and have something to look forward to. Welcome, Carter!

You are amazing!

Danielle_Wright said...

congratulations on Carter! He is a big beautiful baby and his bother and sister seem so happy to have him! I pray that what I feel is right and that Jeremy had a hand in getting this little one prepared for this world for the past few months. Preparing him to be the little man his mommy needed and giving him the little secrets on how to make you smile, push your buttons, and comfort you when you are sad. We will not know if that is the case until the day you get to see Jeremy again and ask him if God let him meet his little man before Carter met you, but I hope that the thought of this might bring you peace and comfort in the days, months, and years to come. I wish it were different for you and I continue to pry for you and your family.
