Welcome to the world, Luke Matthew!

May 30th was here before we knew it and another one of the best days of our life!  I cannot think of a better reason to set an alarm for 4:30 am than knowing it is to meet your son and/or daughter for the very first time.    Surprisingly, we got some decent sleep, Nana stayed at home with Addison and  we headed to the hospital dark and early for check-in.

This time around, we were a scheduled c-section for 7:30 am and they stuck right to that schedule!

Our precious Luke Matthew was born at 7:51 am on May 30th and we could not be more in love.
8 lbs 6 oz, 20.5 inches
He is the perfect addition to our family.

{My first time to see our little guy... still in the operating room}

While back in recovery, Josh brought back Addison to meet her brother for the first time. I didn't have access to the camera then so we don't have that very first picture but we did capture some more once we got to our room.

I love that Daddy's smile!  Can you tell how proud he is of his son!?

This picture makes me laugh.  I think Addison is saying "Oh, dear!  You are an actual baby!?"

We loved getting to share Luke with our sweet family. 

{a little treat for our visitors}

We delivered at Baylor McKinney and they have Cuddle Time each day mid-afternoon so our visitors left for a bit and Josh and I got some quiet time with our little guy ...until it was bath time!

Nothing like a baby sleeping on your chest! 

That evening our family came back up and Addison got some special big sister presents from "bubba".

And we sang Luke Happy Birthday with our "cuckcakes" we made the night before.  Yes, everyone thought I was crazy.

Dr. Banks with our little man.  We love her and are so grateful she takes such great care of this Momma during pregnancy and delivery!

Like I said, one of the best days of our life.
There is nothing that compares to the miracle of life.
