Matthews First Month!

Finally, we have our blue eyed, baby boy! Matthew is the best little man that we could ask for, he is such a blessing. Leah is a great big sister, she is constantly rubbing his head and giving him kisses. His delivery went very well and my recovery was much better then with Leah. Jake and the girls took great care of me.

This month has gone by very fast. It has been so nice to be home with Renee and Jasmine this summer. They really have been a big help! We took a trip to MA so everyone could meet Matthew! It was a fun trip, the girls had a great time going to the water park and the beach.

Thank you everyone for your cards, gifts and meals...we really appreciate all your love and support.

Here are some pictures from August!
