Meet my son

Meet my son

Please everyone; meet my son, Mogammad Yameen Siers. He is now about a month old. We decided on the name quite early on in the pregnancy. I wanted to somehow reference my dad without actually using his name, Mohammad Yusuf. Yameen means Oath, Right Hand, Right Wing (Of the Army).
