4 months and counting

Kaden turned 4 months last week and had his well baby doctor's appointment yesterday. He was tough through all of the measurements, pokes and prods. We are so grateful he is healthy and happy! Here are some stat's and cute pics!

Weight: 14 lbs. 13 oz. (36%ile)
Height: 24 1/2 in. (31%ile)
Head Circum: 16 in. (17%ile)

He is steady as can be on his growth charts, sleeping all night, looking around and reaching for things, recognizing us when we are talking, talking (cooing) up a storm, sneezes like daddy, smiles and laughs like crazy (although he doesn't perform for the camera), holding things, holding up his head, and so close to rolling over, sitting up with a little help, and loves standing when we hold onto his hands. We are so blessed to have this little guy in our life!

Merry Merry Merry!

We had a wonderful Christmas and great new year despite all the sickness at our house ;)

We love getting together with family and friends and spending time with our own little family.

We had a beautiful tree this year, even when it died 2 weeks later, we still enjoyed it while it lasted. We'll make sure to water it more next year. Kaden was mesmerized by it! We had lots of family gatherings and lots of sleeping in!

Our ward Christmas party was really fun. They do a Christmas breakfast instead of the traditional ham dinner which was really fun. Santa and his elves were there and so Kaden got a picture with Santa but was a little too tuckered out to tell him what he wanted. But Jimmy got to tell Santa what he wanted...Can you guess?????

We made gingerbread houses with our friends Jeff and Elise. Didn't they turn out awesome! I love Elise's cute pink and red house. We are so glad they are our neighbors!

Kaden slept great Christmas eve and woke up around 8am after Santa came. He just learned to grab and pull earlier in the week so it was really fun helping him open his presents.

Jimmy's new favorite shirt! Thank you Eddie!

Kaden's play mat that he loves!

We enjoyed yummy monkey bread in the morning after presents and relaxed till family and friends came over for dinner.

For New Years we actually stayed up till midnight this year. We went to our neighbors for their party and then went home a little early to celebrate the new year on our own with a little sparking white grape juice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holidays, reflecting on the Savior and being together. If I know this is a little late, but I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday as well. Merry Christmas!!!
