Chapter 128: Baby Mine
Jayce boosted Zeke onto the bed, and he stared in amazement at the baby, as if it had never occurred to his young mind that the baby everyone had talked about was actually going to come. “Mine?”
“Yes, Zeke,” his father replied. “This is your new brother.”
Jayce patiently answered, “Yes, Zeke. He’s your baby brother.”
The boy crawled to his mother’s side and carefully patted the newborn’s fuzz of dark hair. Looking up into his mother’s face, he whispered, “Baby.”
“Yes, Zeke. He’s our baby.” Trading a long look with her husband, Naomi revealed, “His name is Jude.”
