Baby Jayden's Birthday


("...Happy Birthday Dear Jayden, Happy Birthday to you...")

Sure, he started out sort of lazy.  He would lay around all day waiting on someone to feed him, clothe him and even bathe him but eventually, my brother Andrew realized that he is a father now and that he had to do those things for someone else.  

Little Jayden Michael blessed the world with his presence last year on August 20th.  Arriving a couple of weeks early, he was a surprise in more ways than one. Many months prior, as I sat in the comfort of a fancy Red Lobster restaurant in Pensacola, I learned that the baby who would eventually be named Jayden was on the way.  A little bit apprehensive and nervous for what the future may hold, I immediately took comfort in the delicious biscuits and complementary salad that was drowned in delicious Thousand Island dressing.  After chugging down two glasses of Dr. Pepper and requesting more melted butter for my crab claws, I realized that life is full of surprises and a beautiful baby will never be a bad one. I also realized that a full sized adult bib emblazoned with a large crustacean is not exactly the best look in public.

On the day that Jayden was born, I received the call as I was standing outside of a McDonald's.  Overwhelmed by the fact that this little baby had finally entered the world and that I had forgotten to get an extra packet of sweet and sour sauce, I burst into tears.  From the moment on, I have been smitten by my baby nephew.

For those of you on my Facebook, you've been force fed weekly Jayden photos and undoubtedly cataloged and scrap booked them in your own personal homage to him.  For that, I thank you.

To celebrate Baby J's first year on the planet, let's have a look at some of his best photos along the way! 


(Jayden's face when he realized what "circumcision" meant!)


("Uhhh, I know you a'int about to dip my head under some water in the Lord's name!")


(Peek-a-boo!)


(Greatest Day of Jayden's Life!  Meeting Me!)




(Jayden is HONGRAY!!!!)


(Handsome Boy sporting his best look yet.)


(My family scaring the hell out of him by making him pose in front of a dead shark.)



(He's a big help around the house.  He enjoys emptying drawers to help his Mom re-organize things.)


(Obviously fashion forward, his glasses match his outfit as he prepares for his first haircut.)


(Jayden grows his first moustache which appears to be quite blonde or dough.)

So, to my baby boy Jayden, I love you very much and I hope that you have a great first birthday!  With every photo, every phone call and every story, I love you more.  I can't wait to spoil you and piss your parents off as I sneak you cake, teach you cuss words and buy you things that they won't let you have. After all, that is the job of any good Uncle.
