I'm 1 week old!

Well we survived our first week of being parents! Baxter is doing so well and other than looking a little yellow (jaundice) he couldn't be better. Warren was able to take some time off work which has been great for these first few days. Baxter's Gigi (Abbey's mom) comes back to visit today and his Gimma (Warren's mom) and Grandpa Carroll are coming again this weekend. Hopefully uncle Jeffrey (Warren's brother) can make the trip from Alabama as well. Baxter has become quite comfortable in his new home and has even spent some time getting to know his dog brothers, Hunter and Maverick. We want to congratulate our friends, Pat and Noel Pearson on their beautiful baby girl, Annabelle, born April 20th. Thank you everyone for the calls. All the love and support has been so helpful and we can't wait to see you soon! P.S. we are trying to figure out how to post more pics to the .mac website but until then I will try to keep putting them on this page.

Well he's finally here!  Baxter Warren Carroll made his arrival into the world on April 17, 2008 at 12:35 pm weighing 6lb 12oz and 19 inches long.  He is absolutely the best baby ever and we couldn't be more excited.  Sorry everyone it took so long to post the pictures but we didn't have internet access at the hospital and we have just gotten home.  Both sets of grandparents have been to see him as well as his aunt Katie.  He can't wait to meet his aunt Alice, uncle Matt, aunt Sarah, uncle Nelson, uncle Jeffrey, and cousin Emma Kate.  We have such wonderful friends here in Shreveport who were all so sweet and came by to visit at the hospital.  Baxter can't wait to meet the rest of his friends and family!  We'll post more pictures soon.

New Blog

We finally decided to set up a blog so we can share all our fun times with family and friends. To update everyone we are now living (together) in Shreveport, LA. Abbey has almost completed her 2nd year of Pediatrics residency at LSUHSC-Shreveport. We have a great house, our 2 wonderful dogs (Hunter and Maverick) and we are so thankful everyday for God's continued blessings. Our most exciting news is that we are expecting our first child. Abbey's due date is April 30th and we can't wait to meet our new son! Here's some pictures of the ultrasound, the house, and us-hope you enjoy!

Easter Sunday- Abbey is 35 weeks pregnant and Warren is participating in Mustache March (A competition for the month of March where they grow out a mustache-thank goodness its April!) That's our house in the background.
