Meet Baby Mac!

Baby Mac is finally here and we CANNOT wait for you to meet him! Allow us to formally introduce you to the DIY Playbook’s newest member…

Benjamin O’Connor Matkovich. Ben made his debut on Tuesday morning, weighing in at 8 pounds and 10 ounces. He immediately stole our hearts… we still can’t believe he’s ours!! How did we get so lucky?!

Speaking of lucky. I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the love and support you have sent our way throughout this pregnancy, but especially over the past week.

You were so darn sweet about Ben’s nursery (thank you!!) but when I shared on Instagram that I was headed to the hospital to be induced Sunday night, your love, support, and words of encouragement were overwhelming. Ben wasn’t born until Tuesday late morning so I had a lot of time to read through all of these messages and they brought me so much comfort. This little guy is extremely lucky to be coming into a world surrounded by so much love.

Welcome Baby Ben

We are beyond blessed to call this little blondie our son and can’t wait to share our journey with all of you… starting with his fashionably late entrance into this world! But until then, we’re spending as much time with our “perfect little gentleman-ben” as we can and cannot begin to thank you for all of your love. We feel like the luckiest people in the world.


P.S. Although Matt and I are spending as much time as we can focusing on the newest addition to our family, the blog schedule will remain the same thanks to Aunt Casey!! Isn’t she the best?!
