These are the photos of Wyatt that I showed him at the time, taken just days after he was born. Today’s guest is Wyatt. He’ll be 22 months old soon. He’s sweet, amusing, and the source of my greatest joy. It’s because he now has a newborn brother that he appears to be overjoyed in this photo. Sebastian is his name, and I’d like you to meet him “Cooper went on to tell the world about his gorgeous new baby.
