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)!

I'm just looking at this post to see how it looks on the blog and I just have to say one more time I love Kaden and think he is so so so cute!!!! I just wish I could hit pause on his life right now.

You are so emotional. I think he's precious, too! As for my favorite pic, I like the first one the best (I tend to like the close-ups best) and then the second one after that. Can't wait to see him!

Amy. He doesn't have a nerdy look. I love the toothless smiles! I like the first one the best so that is the one I get right???? When are you going to post all these on your blog to the side?

I was actually waiting to get this of Kaden so I should get the pics up this week. And yes I will send you a wallet of the one you like best. That is why I asked. I only ordered wallets of the first 2 though so nobody is allowed to like the other ones best.

Cute, cute, cute! I love how emotional you've gotten in your "old age" - it just shows that you understand the miracle of motherhood. I do remember when you 1st started dating Kyle, you were scared of our large family - you once asked how we could possibly take care & love so many kids - now you know that the more you have, the more you are able to love.
