Carter is here!

Carter Wesley made his way into this world at 6:20 pm on June 25th. He weighed 8 lbs and 11 ozs and 20.75 inches. With his chubby cheeks and copper hair he is precious! I was induced and Pitocin was started at 8:30 am and things were very slow going. It took until 5:00pm to get to 5 cm and I was getting discouraged. But luckily 45 minutes later I was fully dilated and ready to push. After a practice push the nurse said to wait so we could get the doctor back because he had already turned and was ready to come out. I only had to do one really long push and he was here. YAY!!
He is perfect, precious, wonderful and we couldn't be happier. Especially his Big brothers. They are so thrilled with him. They tell me non-stop how cute he is and they love to just talk to him and hold him. He is such a good baby. I have to wake him up to eat already. I am adding a lot of pictures but there are tons more I would love to add. It just takes forever.
I have to say the word that best describes us right now is BLESSED. I am so thankful that Carter is here and healthy. He is exactly who was meant to complete our family!!
