Rest in peace sweet baby Jaden

40685084_156450850825395_r.jpegHi, I'm Jaden Wesley and I decided I wanted to meet my family sooner than later. Though I wasn't due until November 6, 2019, I decided to make my grand entrance at 10:44 am on July 11, 2019. Weighing in at a whopping 13 ounces, I'm already wowing the Doctors. I've heard them use terms like 'amazing' and 'remarkable' to describe me so far - not bad for someone under 1 pound, huh? My parents and my grandma are going to use this site to let you know how I'm coming along in the NICU. I hear I'll have to be here until my due date - so I've got a while before I break outta here. I lost a little weight in my first couple days on earth, but they say they were glad it was only 15 grams (1 ounce), but I got my first taste of momma's milk on Saturday (I was 2 days old) and everyone says that it's the very best thing for me! I liked it A LOT and know that it will help me grow big and strong so I can wrestle with my brother and uncles in no time. I can feel all the love and prayers around me, and can't wait to meet you all! Love, Jaden Wesley
