He is finally here!

Let me introduce myself...my name is Matthew "Brody" McNeil. I was born Sept. 29th, 2008 @ 2:36am, weighed 6 lbs 13 oz and was 19 inches long.
As you know we thought long & hard about the name. We finally came to a decision literally a couple of hours before leaving the hospital! It felt like it was a matter of life or death...which it was really about "a" life...Brody's. We stuck with a "Br" name but in a little unusual way if you haven't already noticed. We are SO glad that he is here and are forever grateful to our Heavenly Father for him!

Val, how cute is your baby? Im so happy for you and your body the last 10 times I saw you it hurt me to see how uncomfortable you were! Im greatfull that you can have your body back ohh except your boobies those still are not yours. Take care and let B.J. and I know if you guys need anything. Dinner, babysitting you name it even if you want to call and cuss someone out. No Im sure you handle stress way better than me. Take care. Candi

Congratulations! You have such a cute little family. Kallie didn't have a name for a week. The hospital kept calling to see if we had named her yet. Poor thing! That was so stressful for me!
