Checking out Daddy...


First bath with aunt Carolyn (my buddy who was our nurse yesterday)


A sweet sleeper (well, on the first day anyway)


This picture looks a whole lot like a newborn picture of ME!


I'll tell more about how the delivery went later, but wanted to get some pictures up!!

Congratulations Jenny! He is beautiful. I had two huge babies (8 10 and 9 8) so I know your pain. I will be praying as you adjust to life as a family of 3!

Absolutely beautiful!! Congrats, Matt and Jenny!! What a blessing! Thanks for sharing your journey these past 9 months preparing for Levi's arrival. It's been great to watch and even better seeing Levi in real life. The pic of Matt and Levi checking each other out is great. (By the way, Jenny - Shelby was 10# 4oz. It wasn't the most fun but it wouldn't stop me from having more. For me, it was just the right time to stop having kids.) Enjoy yourselves! You just went from being an awesome Christian couple to being an even more special Christian family. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
