Five years ago...

I was sitting at our computer timing my Braxton Hicks contractions and starting to wonder. I told Rick as he left for work that I might be calling that night. It wasn't until 5 the next morning though that I decided we needed to go to the hospital. And at 10:26am our Caden surprised us all! He was two weeks early and we had convinced ourselves he would be a she! What a rollercoaster it has been with him in our lives! Never have I known a child who could make us so mad or laugh so hard! Half the time he just has to look at us and we start laughing. He loves to cuddle and snuggle just about any time, he is smart as a whip and remembers everything! He has taught us a lot too. Patience, you can never have too much cinnamon, or eggos, patience, that everything we thought we knew about discipline doesn't work oh, and did I mention patience!? We love him to death and wouldn't trade him for anything! Posted by Picasa
