For all of you who have requested pictures of baby Carter, thank you for your patience! Here are a few of our favorites from the last few days, and I promise to write more later. We are so thankful for our little angel and appreciate your welcome wishes, prayers, and visits!
Samuel Carter Brown came into the world on Tuesday, January 29th at 7:30 am on the dot. He weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz and measured at 20 3/4 “.
Wide awake and alert!
Carter gets his first name “Samuel” from his daddy (Scott Samuel) and his grand dad (Sam Brown). The name actually goes back five generations. It also has significant personal meaning for me, as I was greatly encouraged by God’s faithful answer to Hannah’s prayer for a son, Samuel, in 1 Samuel 1. Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thanked Him for blessing us with this child.
Aunt Coco (my sister Courtney) and Uncle Ivan (Courtney’s fiance) are spoiling their nephew already!
This is one of my favorite pictures so far. And the blanket Carter is wrapped in was knitted by his Aunt Julie.
Carter’s expression when he saw how high up his Daddy is! But with his long legs and good-sized feet, he will probably grow up to be 6’5″ as well. (Funny side note: poor Scott has been having a sore back from leaning over the changing table to change diapers. We joke that we’ll have to get another set of baby furniture suited for his tall stature!)
Scott was very impressed (and probably a bit scared) that I managed to “coordinate” our outfits! 🙂
Carter with his Grand Mary (my mom, Mary Lynn Brown). His other grandfather, Papa (Bob Brown) is in SanDiego for a business meeting and can hardly wait to get into town on Saturday to see his first grandchild! We have been sending him pictures and videos every day until he gets here!
Carter and Aunt Julie. His Uncle Stuart (Scott’s twin brother) and Aunt Noelle (Stu’s girlfriend) are coming in town today from Atlanta.
