A Little Something Extra

Baby is Here!!!

Here's the great news that Mark and Jennie asked me to post:

Matthew Taylor arrived safely via c-section this morning at 7:50 CST.  He weighed in at 8 lb., 2.6 oz., 20" long, with a 14/5" head circumference.  He is currently in the NICU on oxygen because his lungs were not quite fully developed at 36 weeks, but Jennie tells me he's doing fine and they have already reduced the amount of oxygen that they are giving to him.  Jennie is doing well, too, and resting.

Congratulations to Mark, Jennie, Nathan, and Micah!

Congratulations on your third adorable boy! With your three boys and our soon to be three girls we just might have to do some matchmaking;) I can't believe his size for four weeks early wow! Glad you didn't have to go full term with him. Praying he is soon breathing without oxygen and that Jennie's recovery is quick. Praying also for your little guys at home especially Micah and those helping to care for him. Hope you get a little much deserved rest in the hospital this week.
