It has been a long time since I have blogged anything. There are reasons for that, of which I will not get into. Maybe someday.
Anyway, earlier today, at 10:12 AM, my firstborn son came into the world. Troy Matthew, Jr. was born at Johnston Medical Center in Smithfield, NC. He was 19 inches long and weighed 6 pounds, 6 ounces. Both baby and mother are doing well. I am sharing some photos here. In the first photo below, the red on his cheeks is actually from him scratching his own face with his little, jagged fingernails that were pretty long when born. Interesting. He has socks over his hands now and is getting a trim Tuesday.
