2 months

Cayden was 2 months on November 24th
 At 2 months
-He is sleeping threw the night from 9-7, he has only been getting up once since he was 1 week old and after 4 weeks he was only up for maybe 20 mins between 3-5am! Such a good sleeper
-He eats every 4 hours during the day and eats around 5 to 6 ozs and sometimes more at night
-He is turning into such a talker, he loves to be talked to and he will tell you stories back
-He is so happy and so smiley ALL day, especially in the morning right when he wakes up
-He is such a chub and has the best cheeks ever
-He loves tummy time (his big brother HATED it)
-He is starting to notice and try to touch his toys
-When I am holding him he always has to have a fist full of my hair, I think it is a comfort thing for him
-Still such a great nurser
-He loves his mommy, I am his favorite person (not for long I am sure, so I def am cherishing that)
-Every year my mom gets ornaments for the grandkids and I had her get Cayden the stay puft marshmellow man cause that is what we call him and he looks like haha
-B's nickname for him is monkey
This little guy is such a great blessing to our family and I wish he would stop growing! He is such a sweet baby and such a great baby! We really are blessed and lucked out to have him! Love you Cayden Nicholas

Cayden's Blessing

Our sweet little Cayden was blessed by his daddy on November 18, 2012 in my mom's ward! It was such a sweet day! I am so thankful that my husband holds the priesthood and was able to bless this little guy! We had family come into town and we couldn't thank them more for coming it meant so much to us for them to share this special day with us! Cayden didn't cry or make a peep while Kyle blessed him (he seriously is the best baby) After the blessing we had everyone come over to our house for some brunch! Thank you to family and friends who came and to the men that helped bless Cayden :) we love you all and are so grateful for you all! I am a slacker and usually so good about getting more pictures this is all we took! I wanted one of the men in the circle, one with all our family, and friends and it was just kinda crazy and didn't happen! So thankful for my eternal family :)

Halloween Festivities

I love the holiday season, starting with Halloween in October to January 1 is my fav time of year! This year we had lots of fun we went to the pumpkin patch a bunch of times, B is obsessed with all things Halloween, every store we went to we had to see the scary Halloween stuff, every time we drove past the Pumpkin patch he got so excited! I can't even begin to tell you how much he LOVED Halloween! He keeps asking me where the pumpkin patch went and tells me that it needs to come back! We went trunk or treating at my moms church, we went to Gilcrease Orchard with the Christensens and picked out our own pumpkins, we carved and painted pumpkins with my family, we of course went trick or treating and had chili and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies at my moms on Halloween! We had such a fun time B was Batman of course (he loves him) and Cayden was a handsome devil! We had such a fun month and can't wait for more fun this holiday season!

1 month

Our sweet Cayden is 1 month old today! Already?? Time is going by to fast for my liking! This sweet angel has brought us so much joy and love in just 1 short month! He is such a great baby, he is always happy and he smiles so much, I love it! He is still such a great eater and loves his food! He is only getting up once at night and has been since I stopped walking him up! He is already over 9lbs, little chub haha and is really starting to fill out and get chubby cheeks and a double chin and chunky legs, well starting to get chunky everything! He eats every 3 hours during the day! He loves his sleep and is hardly ever awake! Brysen loves his little brother and is so good with him! Since I nurse the baby, B has wanted to nurse off me (sorry kid not for you), thinks I make chocolate milk, and he also thinks he can nurse the baby and tried to yesterday! When the baby cries B always tells him "its okay monkey" and gives him a kiss! I love my boys so much! Cayden we sure love you stop growing so fast mommy doesn't like it! It is so amazing how much easier it is with the 2nd baby, seems like a piece of cake, now taking care of 2 kids that has had its challenges, but we love being the parents of 2 kids, we are so blessed :)

Newborn Pictures of Cayden

One of my friends Sammi Osborn S.O.Photography took some photos of our sweet little Cayden! He was 1 week and 1 day old here :) I can't get over how darling these all came out, this is not even half of them! Our sweet little man is now 2 weeks and 1 day old, he smiles ALL the time and is just so sweet, we are all so in love! He is great nurser and only gets up ONCE at night, eats and falls right back to sleep which is awesome for me! Brysen is such a great big brother and always ask to kiss him, and if he crys he tells him its okay baby brother! We love you Cayden Nicholas, you complete are little family :)
