on monday december 29th, matteo was born via c-section at 8:08 am.
(7lbs 4oz, 21.5")
after our c-section experience two-and-a-half years ago, we were a bit on edge through the process, aching to hear the cries of a healthy baby emerge.
so when the midwife held matteo up over the blue partition where we could see his face and soon after the nurse brought him around to cuddle with us, we were overjoyed.
everything happened as we would hope it could in a c-section situation.
we arrived home the very next day.
