Jacob and Shayla had their baby on Friday! His name is Carter Noel and he's a real cutie—isn't his hair adorable?!
He was 20 inches long and a whopping 9 lbs. 4 oz.
I haven't heard the whole story yet, but I know that he had to be delivered via c-section. He's been in the NICU for the past couple of days because his blood sugar is all wonky, but he's been doing better so hopefully they'll be home soon.
The NICU dressed him up as Captain America for Halloween:
At least, I'm assuming it was the nurses because I stumbled across a news article about it today! NICU nurses are amazing people! I'm sure it was fun for all the NICU parents to see their little (or big!) babies dressed up for the holiday since they weren't able to be home with their babies.
We're happy that Carter's here and doing better (and we're glad that Auntie Shayla's recovering as well, of course).
Funnily enough, Carter was born on Kayl's birthday! That will make it easy to remember!
My cousin Beth had her baby yesterday—on Halloween—which is funny because that's exactly what she did two years ago on Halloween! Now she has two kids, both with Halloween birthdays! What are the odds of that?!
