While most people were busy preparing their Thanksgiving dinners last November 24, Matt and Shayna Sokol were welcoming their first child.
Sokol Jr. was born at 5:42 a.m. Thanksgiving Day at UPMC Magee Womens Hospital. Mattie weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz and was 22 inches long.
He is the first grandchild of Guy and Margaurette Sokol and the third grandson for John and Sandy Lubawski. Both sets of grandparents live on the South Side Slopes. Great grandparents are John and Jean Stupak of the South Side Flats, and Bill and Roberta Smith, Mt. Oliver.
