Just kidding, Daddy found a snake in the garage and decided to play with it. He killed I thought. When I handed caden to him the tongue started slithering....AHHH

My future Missionary

I got bored one afternoon and decided I would take some more pictures of Caden! I wanted to try something new, so here he is as my little future missionary!


Caden's first crack at a teething cookie!
This was the beginning.....
this was the middle....
.....and this was the end! He loved it! Can't you tell?

I can't get enough

Cousin Tate

When I came back to Utah I lived with my mom for a few weeks until Aaron drove our stuff back from Virginia. Lindsay was there for a few weeks until kenny moved back from Texas too so it was a full house. It was definitly some good times just hanging out eating treaties, taking ressies, and watching some shows.

Caden is wearing some of Aarons old jammies....27 years old.

Lindsay and I saw these cute shirts at Target for 1 dollar so we couldn't resist. I think Grammie was doing a dance behind me to attract attention. I think they liked it!

More Cousins

On the Louder side Caden has two cousins, Gavin and Sydney. They are always wanting to hold and play with, "baby caden", as sydney would say. They love to help Caden put his binky back in when it has fallin out. Caden Loves them very much.

Washington D.C.

Aaron’s sister Kristen came to Virginia to visit in March. It gave us a reason to go site seeing. We decided to go to Washington D.C. It was so beautiful. We spent two days downtown and I think we saw about a 1/3 of what there is to see. Caden just hung out in his carrier and when it was time to eat he let me know, then he would go right back to sleep. The trip went a lot smoother then I thought it was going to go for his first outing as a 5 week old.

Moms photography studio.....

I have taken up photography as my latest hobby. I really enjoy taking pictures, poor Caden.

Grammie, Linds and Tate come to visit

My expected due date was the 11th so Grammie and Lindsay booked their flights for the 13th in hopes Caden would hold on for a few days. But, little Caden came a week early (I was not complaining). Though it would have been nice to have family surrounding us in the hospital, it was actually kind of peaceful and quiet for our first moments with Caden. It was so nice to have them visit. Cousin Tate had grown so much and it was so fun to see them together for the first time.

Welcome little Caden

Caden came to us on Feb. 5, 2007. He weighed 7 lbs. 11 oz. and was 19 ½ in. long. He is such a joy to have in our home. He was born with jaundice and had to sleep in a “tanning bed.” Mom was jealous! He had such great color.
