Baby Matthew

So I did promise you a post about Baby Matthew. You know, the child my daughter was carrying? Ironically, he was born the same day, the same time, and measured and weighed in exactly the same as Anna Joy. Seriously, that is what his It's A Boy card said. And his little foot prints that the hospital does for us? Yup, pretty close to Anna's.

One of the nurses in the nursery was kind enough to wrap him up and make up his little card and footprints for us. She was really very sweet about it all. And when she brought Anna to meet her sisters, she tucked Matthew in right next to Anna for the ride down the hall.

Check out that look of elation on Sarah Grace's face.

I think it was love at first sight.

They even included a pacifier for little Matthew. That nurse thought of everything!

Matthew is a hot item around here. In fact, he plays second only to Anna. Both of the older girls enjoy taking care of Matthew...especially making sure that his diaper is clean. Poor kid is often diaperless, showing off his Xavier Roberts tattoo!

How special for Baby Anna to have her nephew as a "twin" :)

Wow. That Sarah Grace looks amazing after having a baby who's about 1/3 of her own weight. Good job, little Mama. ;)
