Caden is 5!


“The first time his laughter unfurled its wings in the wind, we knew the world would never be the same” Brian Andreas

I blinked and you were 5. You were just sleeping on my chest and now you’re 41.25″ and 39 pounds. You have given me so much joy and have made me so proud over and over again. You are incredibly happy and have the best smile. You are extremely thoughtful and kind and honest and you always want to help your Mommy. I love your complete adoration for me and that you call me Mama, because I realize this won’t last forever. I hate to see you get hurt, but I love that I am the only person who can make the ouchie go away within seconds of being in my arms. I love that you enjoy biking with me. You are such a rule follower and have the sweetest heart. You are beginning to read and are looking forward to kindergarten. You love gymnastics and playing the piano and our second baseball season has just started and I know that you’ll hit it out of the park, because your infections laugh and bright spirit is behind everything you do. You have a little something extra and Mommy can’t wait to see what amazing things you do in this great big world!
(Side Note: I just read this to Caden and he cried and said,”thank you, Mommy”. My little love has the biggest heart)
