4 weeks

I can't believe that in 2 days Caden will be 4 weeks old! I feel like he has been a part of my life for so much longer than that, yet at the same time these past 4 weeks have flown by. I am just loving every day that I get to spend with him.
I have to go back to work in 2 weeks and I know that it is going to be difficult to go back. I just love staying home with him- it is such a joy. :)
Caden changes so much week to week. He is much more alert, can focus his eyes more on things and people, and can hold his head up for longer periods of time! I love seeing these changes.
I just feel so so blessed.

Week 2

Caden is 2 1/2 weeks old now and it is going by so quickly. He already looks so grown up to me compared to when he was first born...sigh.

We have really been enjoying being parents, it is like nothing we have experienced before. It is so tiring, but so rewarding at the same time. Each day I am amazed at how much I love him. God truly blessed me with a husband and son like none other! Thank You, Lord!
We have been getting out some. We went on a long walk on the greenbelt last weekend, which was a ton of fun. Caden loves riding in the stroller.
Here are some pics from that day:

Today we had "serve sunday" at church where we went out into the community and did service projects. Then we met back together at Julia Davis Park for lunch. It was a lot of fun. It is awesome to see the church being the church and serving people. That is what Jesus would have us do not just on Sundays, but all the time.
It was crazy because we brought Caden with us and we were stopped about every 2 feet by a crowd of people wanting to see him! haha. I feel so blessed that Caden has so many people that love and care for him already. God is so good.
The rest of the day today we are just enjoying time together as a family at home. Haven't had the chance to do that really yet, and I am really enjoying it. :) I love being a family of 3.

A New Life

I don't have a lot of time to write these days or get online. Ah.
I am full of so many different emotions; joy, love, awe, fear, and just plain exhaustion!
Most of the time I don't know what I am doing, but am just trying to trust in God.
Caden is so amazing. He is the most precious boy to me and so beautiful. I love him so much that i can't handle it.
Garrett is the best dad ever. I couldn't imagine how amazing he would be at fatherhood. It makes me love him so much more.
Caden is one week old today and we are starting to get the hang of things...I think. :)
I don't know when I will be able to write again, but until then here are just a couple of pictures to hold you over :)
