This weekend, Ash updated his fans on three-month-old Hayden and shared a treat with him Photo series of their lives these days.
In one photo, Ash looks down at her infant son sleeping in her arms, the newborn’s fists clenched tightly.
In another picture, the little boy is lying on his play mat, holding his head up and smiling at the camera. Not surprisingly, Hayden is a strong, determined champion of tummy time. “On my way. No wonder,” one person commented.
The third photo shows Ash’s husband Garry Kissick, he and Haydon wearing matching red outfits.
“Outnumbered by boys,” Ash captioned the post. “I love every single minute.”
