np.vstack((mat[0], mat))

np.arrays are not matrices,
a slice with a single number reduces dimenson,  mat[0] which is
identical to mat[0,:] for 2d array
mat[0][np.newaxis,:] adds a new (row) dimension

>>> mat[0][np.newaxis,:].shape
(1, 5)

it is described somewhere in the help on slicing and indexing
