Carter John, the day you were born, your mommy labored so well. She had help from her carefully chosen birth companions. You even had a doggie-doula.

After you were born, it was time for a snack and then a nap. What an exciting day! Good thing you learned how to suck that thumb before you were born.

Your whole family (four-legged big sister included) is so happy to have you here.

Welcome, Baby Carter!

May all babies be born into loving hands
