Here you go Moms - a different kind of survey for a change - it's all about you and your first baby.
12. What was your first child's sex? Male
18. Who watched? Jared stood by my side and was awesome. He couldn't have been better. My mom and dad sat off to the side of the room. It was great to have both my mom and dad there. I loved hearing my dad say "you're almost done" he's almost out" "you can do it sweetie". The doctor was great and my nurse was awesome!
Cayden brings us so much joy and we love him so much. He is such a wonderful boy and brings such a wonderful spirit to our home. He is definitely all boy though. He climbs on everything, gets into everything, and gets mad when he can't have something. His new favorite thing is to "play" video games with his daddy. If Jared has a controller Cayden wants one too. He will even grab it on his own and "play" without Jared now too. He is so smart!
We took Cayden to the Pumpkin Patch on Friday. It was so much fun! They had a bounce house and a kiddie hay maze that we let Cayden play in. He LOVED it. Cayden just loved being able to walk around and do his own thing. We had a great time and got some great pumpkins! Cayden even picked out his own.
Can you see his top teeth in this picture?? They are pretty cute!!
Have a wonderful week!!! LOVE TO ALL!!!!

This is for Grandmommy. Timmy's choir sang at their Homecoming game a few weeks ago. It was FREEZING out so we had to bundle Cayden up. He couldn't move his arms. But he was a trooper. Timmy's choir sounded AWESOME!!!
Last but not least....
My oldest brother Chris had his surgery Wednesday. The doctor said it couldn't have gone better. Chris is doing well. He was able to help move himself from the operating table. He was alert and coherent. Hopefully today he can move from the ICU into a normal room and then come home this weekend. I think he starts chemo sometime next week. Thank you to everyone who kept him in their prayers.
WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

But everyone else can enjoy too. Cayden is getting so big. He is walking ALL over the place. He doesn't really crawl a whole lot anymore (unless he is being lazy). He can even stand up all on his own. Sometimes he'll get to his hands and feet and then put his head on the floor and push up until he is standing. He is quite the character. We love him so much and enjoy watching him grow. I can't believe there was ever a time he wasn't with us. He brings us so much joy.
(sorry its a little dark and shaky, apparently I have tremors)

I know its a lot of pictures but it was hard to choose only a few.
Happy Belated birthday to my little brother Timmy. You are so special to us and we love you so much!!!!

LOTS OF LOVE TO YOU ALL!!! Have a great week!!!!

So let me start by wishing my wonderful sister-in-law Jessica a very belated Happy Birthday. It sounds like you had an awesome birthday week! We are so glad that you did. We think the world of you and wish you the very best in the year to come.
We are doing well. Jared finished another animation project that he's been working on to add to his demo reel. So now that he finished that he's ready to send out his resume and start the official job hunt. He has already applied for a job with Insomniac Games that would, if he got the job, take us to North Carolina. I would LOVE to go back to the east coast. So I'm for sure keeping my fingers crossed for that one to come through.
Work for me is as crazy as ever. This first month back has been a complete nightmare. I try to stay positive though. Its hard having new people stepping in and throwing off the groove that we already have going. I still love my job but this year seems to be a little more challenging.
Cayden is doing FANTASTIC. He is walking all over the place. Its fun but hard too. His new found love is the computer keyboard. He will go over to the computer desk, reach up, and feel around until he feels the keyboard. The other day he actually pulled it down. I guess that means its time to move everything up another level. Oh, boy!!! He is also enjoying the freedom of feeding himself. About 2 weeks ago I was feeding him and he reached out, took the spoon, dipped it into the cup and began feeding himself. Needless to say it gets a little messy but its so cute. He is growing up so fast.
I also want to thank everyone who has kept my dad in their prayers. He is doing well. It seems that every time we get new news it seems to be positive. Its good that my dad is getting positive news because today we found out some not so good news about my oldest brother. This is where life just doesn't seem fair. Today Chris found out that the tumor in his brain that was removed almost 7 years ago is growing back. He has been doing so well and been so positive about everything that he has had to go through and now he has another hurdle to jump. I just don't understand why he has such difficult challenges to face while I sit with such a wonderful life. I wish that I could go through it for him so he doesn't have to do it again. I guess I just have to put my faith in the Lord and pray that everything will be ok. So, if anyone wants to add my brother to their prayers I would appreciate it.
We hope everyone is doing well. We love you all so much!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
