Isaac Matthew came into the world at 12:45 am weighing 8 lbs. 6 oz. and measuring 20 3/4" long. He is absolutely beautiful. He did not cry once while we were there. According to his mommy he did not really cry when he was born nor did he when given his Hep B Vacc. Katie has been blessed with a good baby.
I have been really struggling with some sadness since we went to meet Isaac. I feel that I'm not exactly entitled to these feelings. These feelings should be Katie's, as Aunt Chris was her mother and I'm just one of the cousins... I wish Aunt Chris had been there. Oh, I know she was THERE and probably had been since Katie checked into the hospital on Friday night. Kate is sure her mother was with her the whole time. But I wanted her to be there in body. I wanted to see her hold Isaac. I wanted to watch her hold Katie's hand. I wanted to hug her. I wanted her to put her coat on and leave with us, riding down in the elevator, walking across the parking lot with my Daddy Bill.
