Jelaine Taelynn Reardon

I was born: April 29, 2009, at MeritCare Hospital, Fargo.

My parents are: Kathy and Shane Reardon, Horace, N.D.

My siblings are: I have and older brother, Trae Allen, who is almost 3.

My grandparents are: Dennis and the late Joyce Peppenger, Great Falls, Mont.; and Wayne and Sue Reardon, Medina, N.D.

My parent’s chose this name for me because: I am named after my Grandma Peppenger, whose name was Joyce Elaine. Mommy used the J from Joyce and added it to Elaine to come up with Jelaine in honor of her mom.

Parents’ wish or advice for the new arrival: Mommy and Daddy wish for me to be a caring, strong, independent girl who brings smiles to others through my contagious smile.

Something special: Mommy and Daddy were able to choose my birth date of April 29. My big brother came to the hospital every day to see me before I came home. He is so protective of his baby “stister!”
