Baby Jayden

I’m a bit biased but I think that this little guy is the sweetest and most squishy newborn that I’ve ever laid eyes on.  After a long labor Zeus Alexander finally made his grand entrance into the world…weighing in at a whopping 10lb 3oz.  What a joy it was being there and watching my sister […]
