Introducing Matthew Porter Alvey

Our little Matthew was born February 22, 2009 @ 9:06am.
He is 8 lbs 6 oz and 21" long.
He is a beautiful happy, healthy baby boy!


We are all thrilled with his arrival. My water broke at 3:15 am Sunday morning, Zack predicted that my water would break at 3am the night before. He seems to be rather good at predicting these kinds of things. Brian & Kelsey came over to watch our kids while we were at the hospital, they were life savers as my parents were headed up to Salt Lake City that morning. My labor really started around 5:30am but with my water breaking I knew it would be fast. Zack slept through most of the labor, I woke him up when it was time to push, which took all of 3 minutes! Grandpa Belt was our first visitor, he was rather smitten by Matthew. Brian & Kelsey brought the kids to the hospital a couple hours later and our kids were thrilled to be able to see him, they all had to touch him! Joshua said "that baby popped out your belly Mommy" (he calls Matthew Pine View) and William says "I am so excited!" Katelyn and Taylor just adore the baby.

Cutest baby in the nursery!

I look a little worn out!
I guess that is what happens when you have 5 kids in 7 1/2 years!

Katelyn 7, Taylor 5, William 3, Joshua 2 and Matthew couple of hours old

He looks wonderful! Glad to hear he arrived safely. That is great you had someone to keep the kids in the middle of the night. I tend to go into labor in the night, too. It is amazing that he is so awake and alert in the photos. Congratulations! Can't wait to see him.
