Do you remember the captivating Lewis family from a few blogs back? We captured Shea and Chase when she was about 8 months along in her pregnancy journey. Shea shared with me then that her pregnancy had been much harder than the last two. This might have been a foreshadow for the birth of newborn Clayton Lane who, since the maternity session, has made his appearance!
On December 13th, Clayton came into the world and was warmly welcomed by his 2 big brothers, and his parents, Shea and Chase. Unfortunately, they did not have the experience every family hopes for as things during his birth took an unexpected turn. Clayton suffered from respiratory issues (with three diagnoses!) which led to 6 days spent in the NICU. With strength and lots of prayers, he finally made his way home on December 19th and big brothers Andrew and Brenden showered their new best friend with kisses.
Clayton officially completes the ABC’s of the Lewis family following Andrew and Brenden. With how many ‘C’ boy names are out there, Colton, Christian, or Carter, you might be wondering how they decided on Clayton. Shae shared an anecdote about hearing the name Clayton on a radio advertisement! Paired perfectly with Lane, the middle name Chase chose their last baby was ready to join the world.
Witnessing their love and strength in this cozy in-home session truly filled my heart with so much joy. I could not be happier for this beautiful family and their absolutely perfect newborn.
