Hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's Day!
We had a great time as a couple and has a family of 3!
Garrett and I celebrated early by going to dinner at the Melting Pot. It is a fondue restaurant downtown. We had a 4 course meal and it was so wonderful! Especially because we never have such "fancy" eating experiences. If we ever go out to eat it is usually to Red Robin (which IS my favorite restaurant by the way).

Then on Valentine's Day we had a yummy breakfast of pancakes and strawberry smoothies!

Then we gave Caden his Valentine, which was The Very Hungry Caterpillar book. Then after a morning nap, we went to the park for the first time with Caden. He LOVED the swing. He was just laughing away. Afterwards we went to the mall for a few things and then had dinner in the food court.
Such a fun day celebrating the love in our life. :)

A Most Amazing 9 Months!

Caden is 9 months and 3 days old today. He had his 9 month check up with the doctor today. I wanted to record his stats from the doctor and some other things about him at this age. Each stage goes by so quickly and the last thing I want to do is forget!

Caden @ 9 Months:

*Weighs 17lbs & 10 oz - 8th percentile
*Is 28 inches tall- 38th percentile
*Head has a circum. of 18.25 inches- 78th percentile! haha.
*Wears size 9 months mainly, but can wear some 12 month sizes.
*Sits on his own, but sometimes randomly throws himself backward and bonks his head. :)
*Does the "arms crawl" and always drags his right leg when he does it...pretty dang funny.
*Rolls like a crazy person.
*He is ALWAYS moving. He doesn't like to sit still or to be held. He just wants to be free, especially when I am changing his diaper or clothes...this has been a major challenge lately.
*He LOVES bath time. It definitely relaxes his and he loves to splash in the water.
*He enjoys shopping with me. He just observes everybody and watches all the things roll by.
*Daddy makes him laugh more than anyone. He especially likes it when he makes funny noises.
*He is VERY ticklish.
*He can't get enough of his bottle...this is going to be a tough one to break.
*Likes reading time with mommy. His 2 favorite books are "Brown Bear, Brown Bear" and "I Love You, Goodnight."
*Calms down when I sing "The Ants Go Marching" song.
*Still loves jumping.
*Likes his oatmeal, mangos, and carrots.

As he grows I love to see his personality develop more and more. He is such a character and I am looking forward to each day that I get to spend with him. :)
