I got to close out 2017 with this Fresh 48 session of Matteo. He wasn’t set to arrive until mid January but he had other plans and wanted to make sure he arrived in time to have his first Christmas at just a few days old! Usually I check in with my mommas about 4 weeks out from their due date to see how they are and how baby is progressing and if there are any changes to their birth plan. This keeps everyone on their toes to make sure they get in contact with me too when labor starts so I can plan my time getting to you within the first 2 days! Well, I am so glad with the christmas craziness and rush I checked in with Elizabeth because just 2 days later she told me she was being induced for low fluids. Matteo was born the following day at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip weighing 5lbs 11oz and 19in. I got to meet him on his 2nd day around 30 hours old and he was a feisty little guy who really liked to nurse and be swaddled.
