Welcome to the world, Jonathan Matthias!

Jonathan = The Lord Has Giv­en  /  Matthias = Gift of the Lord

And tru­ly, after a 9-month stretch, God has giv­en us a beau­ti­ful gift and his name is Jonathan Matthias. He came punc­tu­al on the pro­ject­ed due date but was also an answer to many of those who had us in prayer. These prayers had unwrapped the cord around Jonathan’s neck and assist­ed him to come out safe­ly and health­ily. These prayers also gave Michelle strength and deter­mi­na­tion to push forth to see his face! These prayers gave the wis­dom and exper­tise to the nurs­es and doc­tors who strate­gi­cal­ly helped Michelle through the nat­ur­al deliv­ery and bring Jonathan to our arms. Prayers do get answered!

In prepa­ra­tion for Jonathan’s arrival, we want­ed to ensure that he was going to get the same treat­ment as his big broth­er, Nathaniel. So, we did anoth­er lit­tle mater­ni­ty pho­to­shoot and this time, Nathaniel enjoyed being a part of it! Michelle enjoyed all the clothes from Thyme Mater­ni­ty (espe­cial­ly her sup­port from the Markville Mall loca­tion). There­after, Jonathan had his own spe­cial pho­to­shoot at four days old and was an awe­some sleepy mod­el. As you can see, Nathaniel is such a lov­ing big broth­er who loves to graze his cheek over his younger sib­ling and tell him how much he loves him. At the hos­pi­tal when the broth­ers first met, he want­ed to feed Jonathan a French fry and ques­tioned why he didn’t wave back or say “Hello!”…haha! We are so thank­ful that they both get along (famous last words!).

Life with two chil­dren is cer­tain­ly a bless­ing. Yes, we’re still learn­ing how to man­age the atten­tion of both kids, from one who wants to play puz­zles to the oth­er who needs a dia­per changed. We are def­i­nite­ly look­ing for­ward to the jour­ney that lies ahead!

Thank you for join­ing us in this won­der­ful cel­e­bra­tion of life.
