He's here.


And he is absolutely perfect in every way. 
My heart is just completely spilling over with joy right now. 
He came so quickly that my mind is still processing that he's here! 

Since I may or may not get around to sharing an official "birth story", I'll just let ya know the short version:

Water broke at 5:30am.
Pulled into the hospital at 8:30am.
He breathed his first breath on earth at 9am on the dot. 

More photos to come soon. It's back to snuggling and resting for us! Thanks again, from the bottom of my heart, for all your prayers, my sweet blog friends! It has meant the world to me! 


  1. Awww, congratulations. He's so cute with his pouty little mouth.
    I love the name Cooper, although I had my bets on Carter when you revealed it was a C name. Cooper was on my boys list so I think it's a great name!
    Enjoy the newborn snuggling. X

  2. Oh my goodness!!! Yay, congrats!! That sounds like just about the perfect birth story. :-) And does he already look so much like Molly?? Soak it up, Mama. :-) He's just precious.

  3. Congratulations on a safe & healthy delivery! Enjoy all those special moments as a family of 4!!
