Yoda or Nerd

Okay, several of you have told me that I am mean for saying my son looks like a nerd. Some sweet friends helped me realize I should have said Kaden looks smart and then no one would have felt bad agreeing. Anyway my point is that if I am mean for saying he looks like a nerd is my mom mean for laughing when she saw Kaden's new picture and saying "Oh how funny. You aren't going to like what this picture makes me think of" after a little prodding she tells me my son looks like Yoda. Whatever! I may just be a biased mom but I really don't see the resemblance... so who is brave enough to tell me he really does look like Yoda? Ha Ha Mom... now the whole world knows what a sweet Grandma you really are!

Happy Birthday Kaden!

Our baby boy is 3 months!

Little Kaden is getting so big so quick and I don't like it at all. I feel like everything that happens with him is going to be my last experience like that and to be totally honest I am having a really hard time. For the last nine years I have had a little baby and I have loved it! He just grew out of some of his size 3 month clothes and I cried and cried knowing I will never need them again. In fact I'm crying as I write this. Kyle doesn't get it and just hugs me and loves me through this. He happens to love that we are done with this phase! I think I agree with his decision but it doesn't make it any easier. I do look forward to the freedom we will have with our children now that I won't be pregnant and sick any more and soon I won't even have a nursing child. This is so crazy! I always thought I would have a huge family and now my little family of 7 (i know that is big to most people but I really thought we would have like 8 or 10 or even 12 kids) is all done growing.

So on a more positive note... Isn't Kaden precious!!!! I sure am proud to be this cute little boys mom and I pray God will give Kyle and I wisdom as we try to raise another child to serve Him! I'm amazed at how each little baby of ours is so different and so easy to love just as much as the first. Motherhood is truly a blessing and I pray I never take for granted these children and the special role God has given me in each of their lives!

Oh and I'm not a mean mom... I love this kid more than anything and think he is as cute as can be but will any of you admit that he has a nerdy look? Let me know which picture you like the best? Oh and side note... Kenyon is pretty handsome huh? He is such a good big brother and such a goof ball. No wonder Kyle relates so well with him (I'm refering to the goofball part but Kyle knows what it's like to be super cute too)!
