He's HERE!!!!

Mateo Christian Simpson made his appearance today at 3:53pm. He weighed 8 pounds 1 ounce and is 19 3/4inches long.

I am blogging from the hospital, so this will be short, but here are a few pics for the family that couldn't be here with us....

Here is me showing off the tag on my epidural line...
Proud Daddy looking over Mateo
Dr. Bannister holding Mateo.....I still LOVE her!!!
Me checking out Mateo...counting all fingers and toes...

Mateo tonight after he got a bath...

Me looking horrible and TIRED and Mateo doing what he did all night....sleeping in either my arms or Antonio's arms.



Antonio and Mateo dressed in their Memphis gear watching the game in the hospital...
In this last picture, Mateo really looks like Tatum....I have a picture of Tatum that looks alot liket this one....I will have to do a side by side comparison later.
My delivery today was wonderful. I could not have asked for anything more. I was a little surprised that Mateo weighs over 8 pounds, but he still looks so tiny.
Tatum and Mateo have not met yet. Tatum will be coming to the hospital tomorrow to see him for the first time, so i am sure there will be LOTS of pictures taken then.
Antonio, Mateo, and I are in the hospital til Wednesday. Thanks for all of your prayers! We are doing well and I am trying to recover from delivery, catch up on sleep, and get down this breastfeeding stuff.

I will post more pictures later when I get time.

April you look gorgeous as always!

Mateo is beautiful as well. I have to agree he looks a lot like Tatum. I can't wait to meet him and get a hold of his kissable cheeks! I am so excited for Tatum when she first meets him! Looking forward to seeing those pics! I hope you feel good soon. Dr. Banister is a trip holding the baby! It's sweet that she was talking to the baby knowing she has delivered tons! Mateo is special! By the way, love his middle name. It flows really well. As you can see I really miss you and have lots to say! So, see ya tonight!
