Yesterday, July 22nd, my brother Carter was born! He was born at 3:05 pm and weighed a whopping 9 lbs 8 oz! Wow, he may be bigger than me someday...but for now, I'm the big brother. Carter's full name is Carter Solomon Loyd. Over the past few weeks, Mom and Dad have been saying some weird words like, "brother", "Carter", and asking me if I want to be a "big brother". Finally that's starting to make sense! . I can't wait to play with him, show him my tractor collection, share a bunk bed...okay, I'm getting ahead of myself...Anyways, check out these pics from the exciting day! Mommy and Daddy arrive at the hospital and get things going around 5:45 am!
Mommy started having really big contractions around 2 pm and the doctor was called. By the time he got there, it was time to push! After 15 minutes of vigorous pushing, Carter's head came out. A few more pushes and his broad shoulders were through and he was born! Here he is just after birth, the nurses trying to get him to breathe. C'mon Carter, give us a shout!
