It's a BOY!


Welcome Liam Matthew to our family! Born on March 23 at 6:43 PM, 7 lbs. 12 oz. You were the brightest spot in our week. Papa is really sorry he couldn't be there when you arrived, but we kept him in the loop the whole time by cell phone. And thank you so much for waiting for me (Nana) to get there before arriving. Mom only had 3 pushes left to get you out. We are so glad you are here and healthy.




Your big sister, Mia, is glad you are here too! And I think she forgot that she wanted a baby sister. She was very curious where your toes were, we reassured her that you do have them, but you were wrapped up very tight. She wasn't happy that she couldn't give you a bottle like her baby doll.








Your cousin,Kai, just loved you. He was asking his Mommy to please get him a baby brother. He's not very fond of older sister sometimes and a little brother sounds like fun! I imagine lots of fun days ahead for you.










First stop home from the hospital--to see Papa. Well, at least for him to see you! You are such a good little baby and seem very content. You sure brightened our week.









Congratulations to our daughter, Tenille, and her husband, Matt, on the new addition to your family.

Karen...oh how fun! He is beautiful, and look at that smile on sissy's face! I am so glad you posted a pic with grandpa, I have been praying for grandpa's healing...maybe holding that precious baby will speed his healing some? Grandpa needs to get well, won't be long before little guy will want a horsey back ride!
