Today my sister had her baby! After 23 hours of labor, Matthew was born!
It was great they posted the progress on Twitter. Between Twitter and texting and calling, our family stayed in touch. Gotta love technology.
As soon as we could, we went to the hospital. I got to hold my new baby nephew!
He was a bit fussy and rooting around but found his hand and furiously sucked it. Eventually he managed to cram an entire index finger into his mouth. It was amazing how he could fit that whole thing in there — I thought for sure he was going to gag himself! But, nope. He just sucked himself to sleep.
Love how his little foot is sticking out too.
Here’s a picture taken on my phone. So darling! He looks amazing good for only being born a few hours! Doesn’t even really look like a newborn.
Little Steven appears to like his little brother. He was a bit more fascinated with the toy plane his baby brother gave him. It was nice when we showed up, he came over and gave us a hug!
Congrats, Steve and Corrie!
