Happy 9 Months Caden Ford!

I am humbled today... humbled that I have been blessed with 9 precious months with my lil man. I am humbled that God chose ME to be his mommy. I am humbled that God loves me and Caden more than either one of us love each other. I am humbled that my great plans for Caden pale in comparison to the plans God has for him. I humbled that I have everything I could ever need and most all of what I want. (I am still working on that whole only wanting what I need principle...sigh!) I am humbled that I get to experience the love of a mother so that I can better understand (although not fully comprehend) the love of my Heavenly Father. I am humbled that I was given today! What a great day!

In honor of Caden Ford turning 9 months old today a few thoughts about my lil man...

C- cuddly... You are still a cuddler! Thank you for letting me hold you!

A- a bit bashful... You little flirt you... you bury your head in my shoulder and in your stroller any time a pretty girl talks to you... like you're shy!! PA-lease! A shy boy would cry... you my friend are a FLIRT!!

D- dad-gum if you aren't all over this house... ALL over it! Crawling, pulling up...toddling in your walker... oh my, my hands are full!

E- EATER! You like to eat... you are certainly living up to both sides of your family in that department... you come from two long lines of eaters! New things you love are turkey and blueberries!

N- nature lover you are... and I love it. Any time you're getting antsy or a bit fussy I head to the front or back door and you start a gruntin'... with excitement of course! 

F- fun... you are SO much fun! Daddy and I have the best time hanging out with you. You make us laugh so very much. 

O- o's...CHERRIOS! You would eat them ALL day long if I let you... and some days I am tempted to. You get super excited when I pull out the big yellow box...I love to do it just to see your sweet face.

R- reading, reading is so fun, reading, reading is number one! You love your books almost as much as you love the outdoors... also a great fix for those not-so-happy Caden moments.

D- duh, na nuh, duh, na nuh... welcome to ESPN SportsCenter... You love sports, or at least the balls that are required to play sports. You love to chase, pat and push your balls all over the place. You especially like it when you make them bounce!

So many things to love and cherish about you sweet Caden! I think your 9-month-old photo shoot catches many of your sweetest personality traits and maybe even a few of your not-so-sweet ones... :) 

I love you Caden Ford... Daddy does too!! And boy do you love him!!


Photo Shoot Disclaimer: I tried to get "crafty" with my "set" for the "photo shoot" today... geez that's a lot of quotations... and then I also tried to get "fancy" with my photo editing... I don't claim to be a prof... but I do claim to try! :) 

The worm...
I see this face LOTS... but usually is is quickly followed by a sweet smile... my lil Sweet n Sour boy!



Get your hands out of your mouth you little stinker!!

I had fun with markers and crayons today...




I couldn't get him to look up at me... thought that could have been a cool shot...

So funny...


He majorly spit up right after the picture above... I caught it on camera too... but I decided not to post it... pretty nasty! And side-note... I thought they were supposed to stop spitting up at 9 months?! The joys...

Hank and Caden... and the boots!




This photo shoot stuff is tiring... 

For you and me both kiddo... I was dripping sweat by the end... ha!

KK wanted a picture of Caden standing next to Hank... so here you go KK!

A special note to all of our friends and family... as a family, we are also humbled by your many prayers, support and spoiling over the past 9 months! Life gets that much sweeter when you have so many great people to share it with!

 We love y'all!!
