What a...

FUN day!
We didn't do anything grand, but I really enjoyed it. Garrett had the day off today, which is SO rare. I don't remember the last time he had a Friday off! So, he helped me mow the church lawn in the morning, then just him and I went to lunch, took him to get a hair cut, picked up Caden, came home and picked up a bit, took a nap, then went to the park to take a few photos, grabbed an ice cream treat on the way home, and to end the day we gave Caden a much needed bath :).
I think we got a couple good photos, but it was so hot out and it is SO hard to get Caden to smile on cue! haha- that's a baby for ya :)!
Garrett is leaving for high school camp on Sunday night and won't be back until Friday, so this was kind of a special family day together before he leaves. Boy will I miss him!
Here are a few of the photos from the park and a couple of Caden after his bath :)

2 MoNtHs

I can't believe that Caden is already over 2 months old! I am trying to hold on so tightly to the memory of the day that he was born. Ah.
Anyways, I wanted to record a few things from his 2 month check up for me to remember.
Weight: 10 lbs. even (25th percentile)
Height: 23 1/2 inches (50th percentile)
Head Circum.: 15 3/4 inches (70th percentile)
He recieved DTap, Hepatitis B, Polio, Hib, Pneumococcal, and Rotavirus vaccines.
He is very healthy- has great head control, tracks objects, is great at focusing, smiles a ton, and coos a lot.
He is now in size 1 diapers and is in 0-3 month size clothes, totally out of the newborn stuff.
And get this...last night he slept 8 1/2 hours straight (from 9pm-5:30am)! I woke up at 4am and went to check on him to make sure he was still breathing! I couldn't believe that he slept that long...hope it continues. :)
It is such a blessing to watch him grow and develop his own personality...I love getting to know him. Nothing is better. :)

A lotta notta!

Not a whole lot to say.
Just chugging along I suppose. :)
Caden had his first set of immunizations on Monday and it went pretty well. I was dreading it and was so relieved when it was over. Luckily he didn't have a fever or anything afterwards.
I really have been feeling like a change is going to happen lately....mainly with Garrett's job. We both feel like God is leading him to be somewhere else. So, we will see what happens. Just continuing to pray about it. Ah, change. Garrett and I know that word very well. Our lives have been FULL of change every since we were married nearly 4 years ago. I am ready for some stability for awhile. But God knows what I need more than I do. :)
I feel so boring as I am writing this. I am just feeling so blah right now. Just ready to climb in bed and read a book.
To end this very interesting post I will leave you with a few photos of Caden's 1 month (he is now 2 months) photoshoot with Alisha Beverly. Enjoy! :)
