Happy 1st Birthday- Caden!

A year ago today, Caden was brought into the world. At 7 lbs 12 oz and 20 1/2 inches, I'll never forget the look on his face when he came out. It was of pure shock and then his little nose and face scrunched up and he screamed bloody murder as to ask

" why did you take me from my comfy home!" and he didn't stop crying until he was in our arms..

This year has brought so much growth for Caden, obviously, and for his parents a HUGE growth in the art of managing and balancing 2 kids and learning alot of patience of functioning fully during the day while NOT sleeping at night :) Caden is soo different from his sister and couldn't love dirt more or banging into things to get his body through or following his big sister everywhere.

Caden's little facial expressions are priceless and he has a couragious little boy's heart and tries to truly go where no baby has gone before...

and he holds a special place in my heart as I truely understand what it is to be 2nd born and have to find your place beside (NOT BEHIND) those overachiever/people pleasing, toy grabber, 1st borns !

Love you ,Caden, you are a joy and are soo important to our family
