Since I know everyone is looking for an update...

There's not much new going on, but wanted to post a little "update" since I know that a lot of you check our blog daily.

The major thing going on right now is that Cade is teething like crazy... poor little guy is miserable. It is causing him to have some difficulty sleeping... he's been waking a lot during the night which means momma has been getting little sleep. I hope that it will pass soon though. He will cut those teeth (hopefully all at once!) and we can get back to normal. But as of right now, he's still just gumming away at everything. If you get close, LOOK OUT, he's like a little shark!

We had his pictures made on Wednesday. He was sooooo good & did such a great job, putting up with 3-4 women trying to get his attention, trying to get him to smile... it was quite an ordeal... almost 3 hours to be exact! I resorted to singing the Little Einstein's theme song over and over and over... it was the only thing that would make him smile. I would NEVER sing in front of anyone before Cade came along... now I'm singing in front of strangers just to make my kid smile. I haven't seen how they turned out but I'm sure we got some great ones! We had a few wardrobe changes and we were ALL worn out by the time it was over. Poor little Cade was still tired today from his professional photo shoot. Now maybe he won't mind his mommy's photo shoots so much!

We've started giving Cade baths in the BIG tub. He loves it! Loves the water, loves his duckies, I think he'd stay in there all night. He sits up all by himself and plays until he's all shriveled up... he hasn't really figured out how to splash yet but I'm sure that's soon to come. And of course I took some pictures to commemorate his first time in the bathtub! (I'm sure he'll hate me for this someday)... so here he is, in the big tub!

One other really cute thing he's started doing is giving hugs and kisses!!! There is NOTHING better in this world than your little baby boy squeezing you around the neck and giving you a big open mouth kiss right on the cheek (or sometimes he aims for the mouth, LOL)... I absolutely love it! It makes all of those 4:00 a.m. feedings (and sometimes the starts to our day) more bearable.

Big boy in a big tub!!! Time is flying isn't it? He'll be in kindergarten before you know it. *insert tears here*

Isn't it funny the things we do now that we are Mommys? I can't wait to see his new photos. We are taking Caden this weekend. I'm excited but also dreading the "ordeal".

He is adorable, Christa. You must be so proud.

Oooh, can't wait to see the pro pics! We're teething here too and it's horrible... poor baby is barely eating or sleeping. Love the bath pics!
