AJ asked for us to name him after him so being such a nice BSB I did. lol Actually we both loved the name before he said anything.

James is the name of my great grandfather on my dad’s family and Saint James was the church we got married in. He’s now our little St. James

Pictures will be coming. Still in the hospital and all he’s wearing is a diaper. Need to get him dressed so you ladies don’t get to excited.
