Nathaniel "Nate Dawg" Graham Stevens in da' House!!

After months and months of anticipation, he is here!  Mom, baby and dad are all at home resting and enjoying being a family.  I'm so proud of how tenacious and tough Lesley was in the delivery room!  Nate weighed in at 7 lbs. 7 oz.  Though I am probably a bit biased, I do believe he has the makings of a tough ultrarunner in the future.  After only being alive for a little over a day, he barely made a peep when they pricked his heel to do the blood screenings.  I wish I could say the same for myself when I had a little heel trouble in HURT, but I was crying like your average newborn at mile 87.  If all goes well, son will soon be taking dad to school on the trails of Tantalus!  Thanks for being such a strong support to our little family, HURT ohana.  We cherish our relationships with each of you. 


Matt, Lesley and Nate

Hey Matt ! Congratulations to both you and Leslie ! However, there's only one Dawg in your house, and it ain't Nate or Leslie. Hmmmmmm..."Matt Dawg"...ya, it has a nice ring to it.


Congrats! Let's hope that serious sleep deprivation will slow dad down a little on the trails. (I seem to recall a sub-1hr finish at Top of Tantalus. Ridiculous. This has to end.)

Love to all!


Congratulations, Matt and Lesley! Matt, don't forget to teach Nate the songs that you sang on the trails during HURT 2009. You need to start "warping" the kid as soon as possible...


Congratulations and best to the family!

Matt, from the looks of that picture of you and Nate, I have to say that you are well on your way to joining us in the Senior Division.


Congratulations Matt and Lesley!!! Parenthood is fun:) I'll have to check out more pics...

Jah Bless You,
