It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year....

This really is the best time of the year. I love the Christmas music and decorations, and knowing what Christmas is really all about. I love the start of basketball season and extra time with family, but most of all I LOVE that my baby's birthday is right at the heart of the Christmas season. I have not even come close to finishing my Christmas shopping, but I have long been thinking about Caden's birthday party. With his birthday being on the 25th, we are going to have a party on the 26th. Just family, plain and simple...BUT I could not deprive everyone of his cute invitations:) SO, it's not ever December yet, but here are Caden's first birthday invitations (Oh my goodness, did the words "Caden's first birthday" just come out of my 'mouth'?!)

**I dont know why the quality is so bad but the poem at the top says:

"The whistles blown, the time has come, For our baby Caden to turn age one. It's been a year and we would love for y'all to come on over and have a ball."

A little cheesy I know but he only turns one once, right?!

This is a cry for help! Caden has become attached to a lovey:) He has actually been attached to it for quite some time now, but here is the problem--they dont make them anymore (or at least I can't find them). They make bear ones and bunny ones but I cannot find any puppy loveys. He had two but we lost one at the zoo today so we are down to one stinky lovey (we definately need more than one for back up). If anyone knows where to find one please let me know!! They are on Ebay but for $25.00:( Here is a picture of what we are looking for so please help us find a new lovey!

Proud...or concerned?

Okay so Caden does not know where his nose is, he is not walking yet and all he can say is "mamma" and "bye bye" well today at Target he was being such a good boy that I just had to buy him a basketball. Now, he has LOTS of basketballs little ones, medium sized ones, stuffed ones, etc., but I bought him a real NBA style ball...and he LOVES it. He played with it for an hour today. He used it to stand up with then would crouch down and pick it up and throw it. Should I be concerned that my sweey baby cant sing his ABCs or tell me what sound a dog makes, or should I be proud that he can dribble before he can walk? (not only that but what does the fact that I am even posting this say about our families priorites?!)

2 Weeks Later....

I know Halloween was a couple weeks ago but I figure better late then never...right? and these pictures were just too cute not to post.
