precious mateo gave his mommy a long labor,

and eventually ended up having to arrive via c-section.

born at 2:40 in the morning, i got to meet him when he was just ten hours old.

he wasn’t a big fan of being unwrapped from his blanket, but he loved holding onto his mommy’s finger.

it was such an honor to meet this family for the first time as they welcomed their baby into the world.

mateo… you are a precious and loved little one.
