Meet Jayden Elijah

This post, written by Greg, originally appeared on

We are still at the hospital. They want to keep Boogie for another 24 hours to monitor his vitals. So, Mommy has to stay so that he can eat. And of course, I’m staying with!

He’s been really good. He’s hardly cried at all, with the exception of a couple of times when he was hungry. He’s been pooping and farting like crazy though! He’s spent much of the time sleeping since he made his way out of the womb last night. There were a couple of times though where his little eyelids peeked open and he started looking around to observe his new surroundings. He even looked up at me for a while. I love my new baby boy!

Mommy’s been pretty good also. She’s just extremely tired because she hasn’t gotten much sleep. We’ve been staying up to enjoy our little ball of wonder. Yeah, it’s pretty much safe to say that sleep don’t live here no more! He packed his bags and hit the road!

I just wanted to give everyone a small update on what’s going on. He’s getting his hospital picture taken in a half an hour, so I’m going to run back to the house to get an outfit to put him in. We packed an outfit for him in Mommy’s overnight bag, but it’s a little too big for him.


Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday! Mommy and I really appreciate it! I’ll make sure to keep you guys updated when I can!

    Awww! Congratulations to the both of you! He is a very beautiful child. Make sure you guys try to get some rest! I know it’s easier said than done. When my son was born I slept whenever he went down for naps. I took advantage. Keep that in mind!
