Pumpkin Man

Little man is getting more accustomed to spending time laying on the Boppy. These pics were taken about a week or so ago before bedtime. He has already outgrown this sleeper so it's disappointing he can't wear it to bed on Halloween, but oh well. He is growing & changing everyday. We thank God daily for our son & look forward to what each new day brings.

The Nursery

Here are a few pictures of our nursery. It's not complete b/c there is nothing above the crib (we haven't decided what we want up there yet) & there's some wall space on the other side of the room too.

1 Month Pictures

We took Cade's pictures a week late, so these are actually 5 week pictures. We're going to try to take them each month to see the progression & hopefully in the same spot. Dayle started this trend I believe & I know Rachel does it too, so thanks for the good idea. This photo session wasn't great due to his lack of cooperation, but I know if this one was hard, the ones to come will only get worse. This outfit was his "coming home" outfit from the hospital, except it actually fits now instead of falling off him. We didn't include the hat, sorry!

O.K. O.K. Here are some pics

I keep getting prodded to display more pictures of Cade so here are a few of recent. Not sure if he is saying "Hi," "O.K., that's enough pictures for now," or "Wait just a minute, I'm not wearing anything under this blanket!"
Cade looks in shock many times when he is wide awake, those big blue eyes get our attention.
This was a couple of weeks ago when he barely could get in the swing but he has grown so much & fits in it much better now, though he's still not sure he likes it all that much.
Our friends from Brazil, Ina & Ildeu had lunch w/ us after church & they were enamored w/ Cade. They have like 11 or 12 grandchildren, but treated Cade as if he was one of their own. I know baby talk & babble coming from adults is funny & weird, but trying observing baby babble in Portuguese!
This is one of our favorite pictures of Cade sleeping. Not sure what he's dreaming about, but we're not's probably just gas!

Kara's 2nd Birthday Party

A little over a week ago we celebrated our neice Kara's 2nd birthday. Wow, how quickly time flies. It seems like just yesterday we were at the hospital holding her just hours after her birth. Cade is growing up right before our eyes & it's scarry! Here are a few fun pics from the party. My sister did a great job on Kara's cake. I know she worked hard & it was worth it. It tasted great too.
Kara's attention span was short. 2 year old's get something they like & forget about the rest of the gifts. I spent most of this time trying to get the toys & dolls out of the packages. Why does it feel like trying to break into Fort Knox just to open a toy (frustrating).
This little stroller had many intricate parts, but once we got it put together it became the toy of choice. She strolled her doll around all over the park until it was time to go home.
Whew! These birthday parties are tiring! Cade was oblivious to what was going on around him, nonetheless he was in the spirit of the party. Maybe he'll be satisfied w/ these Mickey ears until we can go all the way to Orlando some day to get the real ones. In case your wondering, his outfit says "My Heart Belongs to Grandma" - one of the many early attempts to spoil our son.
