  1. It’s been a great experience having a toddler he such a joy!

  2. Simple easy to pronounce in English, French, and Spanish.

  3. We chose the name because that is his fathers name.
    Though he gets very mad when someone says that he is a junior. (his father has a different middle name)
    We named him Shawn Cordero.

  4. That what his dad and I wanted to name him
