Mateo

If you’re a fan of RJP on Facebook, you might remember seeing this little miracle baby’s story.  For those of you who haven’t “met” Mateo yet, you are in for a real treat.

Mateo Edward Villegas was born on December 28, 2010– 1 pound 8 ounces & 11 weeks premature.  The following weeks were a scary time for Mateo’s incredibly loving parents.  After multiple surgeries, an extended stay at the hospital & countless prayers, this little miracle was finally strong enough to come home.  I visited Kristin, Roberto & Mateo in the hospital last spring.  Here are a few pictures from that visit to give you a little perspective of how well he’s doing now…

He finally decided to open his eyes for us:)

Now, Mateo is 9 months old and so happy to be home with mom & dad.  I can’t believe how much he has grown!!

Welcome to Mateo’s nursery…

Isn’t he so handsome?!

Mateo is such a smiley little guy!

Kristin & Roberto– Thank you for allowing me to capture a small glimpse of Mateo’s amazing story!  I look forward to watching him grow up & continue to get stronger every day.
