wonderfully made

I was working on some stuff at my computer today, and as it happens so often, I was distracted. Distracted by pictures of baby Cade.  Not of his first days in the hospital, or our trip home, or his smile, or bathtime, but of his very first picture.  The first time we ever saw him, only 11 weeks old, still inside of me.  It brings tears to my eyes to think how God formed Cade from his first day of life when he was as small as a period on this page into the 14+ lb. precious baby boy that I get to feed, hold, rock, sing to, comfort, and love each and every day.  Josh and I are incredibly blessed parents.  Blessed by Cade's life and by the opportunity to see how God created Cade from the very beginning. What a powerful and mighty God we serve!

Psalm 139:13-14
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."

all. night. long.

YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cade slept from 10:30pm to 6:30 am! I was the happiest mommy in the world this morning! To put a cherry on top, he rolled over 5 times today, too! I'm just so proud of him! Enjoy some more pictures of the sleeping-all-night-rolling-over-pro...

chunky legs are mom's favorite!

Time is FLYING by! Baby Cade is already 10 weeks old! He changes every day and is cooing and smiling all. the. time. We went for his 2 month check-up a couple of weeks ago and were blown away by how much he had grown!  When his sweet Dr. saw him she said "Who is that baby? Are you sure that's Cade?"  After that we knew he would have a great weigh in...he weighed a whopping 13 lbs and 2 oz and was 22 in long.  He had gained 5 1/2 lbs and grown 2 3/4 inches since he was born.  His new nickname is "Chunker"! I love the fat rolls on his legs, all signs of a healthy baby boy!  Here are some recent pics of Chunker...

last week was grandude's birthday...we found
these shirts and couldn't resist! They were a big hit.


 That same night Grandude presented us with a book he wrote called "The Crib Story."  What an amazing story about how he lovingly crafted Cade's crib!  Grandude is so thoughtful and did a wonderful job.  I am sure it will be one of Cade's favorite bedtime stories.
