A Growing Girl

Here's our little angel girl at 2-months-old. At her check-up in November, she had gained another 2 1/2 pounds, and grown an inch & a half... wow! Her 2-month stats: 12 lb, 1.5 oz, and 23" long! In one month, she went from the 50th percentile in weight to the 90th... you "grow" girl!

Callie loves to watch her hands, and she chews on them a lot! She has the most beautiful smile. I can't get enough of that! At two months, she could already roll from her tummy to her back. She is a strong baby girl! Callie really is a good baby. She's an awesome nighttime sleeper... what more could a mommy ask for?!

Bless her heart, she has lost most of her hair though, and what remains is so funny! Had to take a picture... She does have new hair coming back, but she still has a little bald spot in the back. Too cute!

Ready for a Christmas night out

What a sweetie! Callie's expressions here are a LOT like her brothers' when they were this age.

Thanksgiving Weekend

We were fortunate to spend a day of Thanksgiving with each of our families this year. Everyone being together can be chaotic, but equally as wonderful. We are blessed to be part of truly loving families... I can't help but stop and think about the service men & women and their families especially during the holidays. God's peace, comfort, and blessings to you all...

Cade's Birthday Weekend II

Cade was so, so excited about opening his presents this year!
Sweet boy...

Here he's posing in his new "hoodie" with Daddy...

We blindfolded him & led him outside for his next surprise. Look at that face!

To top off the weekend, Cacki brought him a "combine cake". Yummy!

Cade's Birthday Weekend I

Cade turned three-years-old on November 13th... Yes, Friday the 13th this year... but it was a super-spectacular day! The weather was awesome for November and we went to the zoo! The boys have been begging to go back. Howie went this time, which was great! I was able to take a break with Callie when needed, and he got to spend some time with the boys. Cade enjoyed his birthday very much!

Hudson & Cade posing like flamingos.

Look how close the elephant came!

Watching the polar bear swim & swim was one of the highlights of the day! It was almost like he was putting on his own show!

This group of monkeys was swinging & climbing. They were a lot of fun to watch, too.

And here is Cade's favorite animal... a horse! Of all the wild animals at the zoo, the barnyard animals were his favorites. :)

The After-Party

Hudson & Cade had a great time playing and celebrating with family & friends at their birthday party. They had an equally good time opening gifts after the party... :)

Baby sister didn't make it too long :)

Birthday Party

More birthday pictures...

Hudson and Cade celebrated their birthdays together this year with a party on Halloween! What fun!

Hudson had a mountain of baseball cupcakes with his #5 at its peak. Cade had a tree of football cupcakes with a #3 at the tip-top. They even had pinatas in the shapes of a 5 and 3. How cool!

All of our guests came in costume. Can you guess who they are?!

Here's the whole crew together... We tried, anyway!

Thanks, everyone, for coming! We had super birthdays this year!

WOW! Our little boy is three-years-old today! I can't believe how much he has changed, and is growing so fast! When he was first-born, he looked just like his older brother. He quickly morphed into his own being, though, with his own look & personality.
We've been blessed with good babies... Here is our precious Cade as a newborn.

By age one, our little blonde boy was a real go-getter with huge personality!

Look at how much Cade changed between ages one & two! He's a little boy already! He didn't keep that chubby, full, toddler look for very long.

Such a big boy, but still our baby, too. This is Cade on Hudson's birthday this year.
Cade is still our Jekyll & Hyde baby. He can turn on a dime! He's so sweet & thoughtful when he wants to be, but puts the "terrible" in two's & three's also. You gotta love him!

Football-man! He loves, loves, loves sports, and the more physical, the better! He's a smart, little man, too. He's begun to really enjoy books. He gets into one, and wants to read it over & over! One of his favorites right now is about a "lucky" fox & piglet. On one page it reads how the fox opened his door & saw a "delicious-looking piglet". I love to hear him "read" this page... (in his loudest, one-volume voice) "Fox opened de door and saw a dewicious-wooking pigwet"! Too cute...

October 15th

Ok, so I'm WAAAAY behind on blogging... Going to try to play catch-up! :)

Hudson's 5th birthday was October 15th, and, boy, did he have a great day! He's been waiting for this day, and he enjoyed every minute of it!

Cade & I took birthday cookies to preschool for him to share with his friends at snack time.

It was a Thursday, so he got to stay for Afterschool Care.
(He thought Afterschool Care would be the coolest thing in the world, so Howie & I gave in and let him stay one day/week. He LOVES it! It's a treat for him, and it wears him out, so it's a treat for us, too! ha!)

(Thanks, Ms. Brandi, for these two pics!)

Cacki, Papa Ross, and Grandma Carnese came to visit with a special birthday cake. How cool is that?!

Hudson had a super birthday filled with wonderful birthday wishes from his WHOLE family! Thanks, everyone, for remembering Hudson on his special day. He's looking forward to his birthday party!!!

Too cool, too soon!
