Introducing Nathan "Nate" Paul DeCoste

Nathan means "Gift of God" and his middle name is after Katie's father.

Momma and son share a moment just after delivery.

Our family has now grown to 5!

Sam gets to know his new little brother.

Katie shares a quiet moment with Nate on the porch.

The LONG wait is finally over!!! We welcomed the newest addition to our family, Nathan "Nate" Paul DeCoste, on Monday, June 23, 2008 at 8:52 a.m. He weighed 9 lbs 2 oz and was 21 1/2 in long (Go KATIE!) He is a beautiful little boy full of personality and charm. He is very laid back (as you may have guessed being he was 5 days late) and loves just looking all around. Not a big cryer ... yet. Katie will have to post her delivery story soon but until then I will post a few pics.

We couldn't believe the outpouring of love that we felt from family and friends. We must have received 50 calls in the past week as people anxiously awaited Nate's arrival. We thank you all for standing with us in prayer and can't wait for you to meet our little man. God is good!

Matt, Katie, Grace, Sam and Nate
