Mother's Day in the Bates House

Erin (Bates) Paine recalls how her family celebrated Mother's Day when she was young (video below). "Dad really put a lot of thought and effort into the day to make it special for Mom," says Erin. In less than four weeks, Erin and Chad are due with their first child, a son named Charles Stephen Paine IV. They have already decided to call him Carson.


  1. erin looks fantastic!
    do you know if there will be a special on uptv when erin delivers!

  2. why don't they just name him carson instead of using it as a nickname for a name it has nothing to do with except the first letter?

    1. Because he is fourth generation Charles Stephen Paine.

  3. Glad to hear Erin had a safe delivery. With all the potential complications she was facing with childbirth, I am so happy that she and Carson are doing well.

  4. My Husband, Ben & I are so very happy for you two Erin & Chad & your families! The arrival of Carson is a miracle, answer to prayer & a great Blessing! Thank you ABBA!!!

  5. Erin, I am so happy for you! Am so excited about Carson! But Please remember though you lost three other babies, it doesn't take away from the fact that you are still a mother of four, those other three just happen to be waiting for you in heaven. Yes Carson will be the oldest here on earth but he has siblings in heaven. God Bless !!
