Jaden Michio Tsai
April 2004
6 lbs. 11 oz.
19 inches
Three weeks before he was due, Jaden had enough with the womb with no view. Contractions began at 2:30 a.m. Julie, following the advice of her doctor, stayed home and waited until contractions were within 5 minutes apart. By 8:00 p.m., the contractions became intense enough for Julie to summon her chauffer husband. Once checked at the hospital, people realized the boy was ready to emerge. The hospital staff rushed to find their bearings while Julie attempted to squeeze the life out of her bedside railing. In one hour's time at the hospital, Julie and George were staring at their newest addition to the family.

Separated at Birth?
Jaden continued to grow faster than our cameras could click. Our boy consciously smiled and laughed if he was amused by our goofy faces and sounds.
