Mathias David’s Birth Story

Here’s a post I definitely didn’t think I’d be typing up this soon! I’m still a bit in shock that our sweet Mathias joined our family a full three weeks before his due date, but I’m not complaining about the extra time to snuggle him on the outside AND the fact that I don’t have …
