I was there, in the waiting room when he was born. We heard the lullaby music over the speaker and wondered, "Does that mean he's here?"
Then, 9-year-old Autumn (baby Caplin's big sister) came running out announcing the news: "He's born!"
And just like that, the world changed.
I sat in the waiting room with my sister, my mom and Brandy's mom. We were all four clenching our phones, waiting for text messages from my brother, and the first pictures of Caplin Warren Brown.
What you see above is one of the first we got.
Caplin was born at 10:23 a.m. Friday, August 2, 2013.
He was 8 lbs 10 oz, and 21 inches of perfection.
He was beautiful, right out the gate.
It hasn't even been a week and a half, and the love and light this guy has added to our family is immeasurable!
He's a blessed little boy. He has a great Mommy, a proud big sister, and a Dad wrapped around his tiny finger with his cute tiny little miniature fingernails.
Now... what do I want to give baby Caplin Warren Brown? A cousin, of course.
