My nephew was named after two of great-grandfathers. The name Matteo (Mah-TAY-oh) is the Italian version of Matthew. Jeremiah's paternal grandfather's name is Matthew so they named their son Matteo in his honor. "A gift of God" is the meaning of the name Matteo. How cute is that? His middle name, Peter, has been in my family for two generations already. It is the name of my paternal grandfather and also my father's name. I couldn't think of a more fitting name for such a handsome little dude.
The only downfall to the arrival of my nephew is that I have to wait a whole week to meet him. His mommy and daddy live in Framingham Massachusetts and since I'm down in Philadelphia so I've planned to visit this coming up weekend. Appropriately it is Mother's Day weekend!
Here are some photos that my family took and sent to me while I wait in Philly until I get to meet him.
