baby jayden {1.}...

So my last post shared a bit more about my personal 'baggage' that is happening in my life. I normally don't 'go there' on the blog, but it is MY I think I get to. The last post I wrote about was a sad/happy post about a bad situation that is hopefully being molded into a good situation (if you didn't read click here). Now I just get to share the amazingness that is the newest member of my family. I didn't think it would be easy to welcome Rachel and Baby Jayden into the family, just because of how stubborn I am, and how hard it was for me to accept that my sweet little toe-headed blonde boy Sean was having a baby. But one look at him and I was hooked. Check these pictures out, can you really blame me?

Jayden Sean Alan Eakes

Born March 22, 2011

9 lbs. 1 oz. 21 1/2 inches

{1.} Jayden's very first picture. He looks full grown he is SO big. Like pack that kid a lunch and send him to school. He is ready.

{2.} Rachel was so lost in her baby boy. It made my stone cold heart melt.

{3.} Sean looking down at his boy. He was such a proud papa. Two seconds after this picture was snapped I was sobbing

{4.} Tania and Rachel with their half-assed smiles.

{5.} She was so loaded and exhausted in this picture. After being awake for almost 48 hours she was out of it, but still such a beautiful and happy new mom.

{6.} My first time holding the little man. He is so precious. I may not ever want kids, but I love other people's babies.

{7.} He is such a proud daddy.

{8.} Tania and her 'crumb-snatchers' as she so affectionately calls them. She is the most amazing person and juvenile drug court counselor. I cannot thank her enough for how hard she has worked with Rachel and Sean. I know it is her job, but she has connected with them on such a deep level.

{9.} Close up! Isn't he absolutely beautiful? Okay, okay...I know newborns aren't really cute to anyone, but to me he is one handsome devil.

{10.} The newly formed Eakes Family. I am really proud of these two. I hope and pray that they can keep their heads on straight and raise little Jayden to be an amazing human being.

Please don't kill me, I have A LOT of pictures of Baby Jayden and I will be blogging about him a lot. So, y'all have fair warning. Once again please send prayers and positive thoughts to these kids, they need all the help they can get.

He's so handsome! Trust me. Some newborns are ugly (they can't help it, look at what they just went through!) but he's adorable.

They are young but if they are determined and both put in effort they can make it work. I hope they accept help when it's offered and ask for help when it's needed, and that they are able to stay best friends, be there for each other and work together to raise Jayden (love the name). I'll be thinking of them and praying for them!
