Cade's first road trip and newborn pictures

Two weeks ago we took Cade on his first road trip to Amarillo to visit his Nana, Papa and Brent's Granny and Papa. He did really well in the car, he didn't cry the entire way there, and just cried a little bit on the way home. Not bad for such a little guy on a 5+ hour car trip! We had a great time - see some pictures below from our visit.

Here is Nana giving him a bath! He pooped in the towel we used to try him off with. It was pretty funny :)


Cade and Papa!

Gigi with Cade...and Roxy and Chessie. They all wanted Granny's attention!



A few weeks ago we had Cade's newborn pictures taken. Here are a few of our favorites:



I'll take a minute to brag on our son - I think he is just the CUTEST baby EVER!!! :)

One month has come and gone!

Well, its been a month since Cade was born and we can't believe how fast time has gone by! His one month appointment was this past Friday and he weighs 10 lbs, 11 oz already! He really is getting big. He's in the 90th percentile for height and weight.
Let me be honest and say I had planned to be a dedicated "blogger" and update our site every week or so with the pictures...well, I quickly realized that with a newborn, I really don't have time!!! When Cade sleeps, I nap or do things around the house. I feel like I'm finally getting a handle on things, and so I'm going to play catch up and post pictures from the past few weeks. Enjoy! :)

This picture makes me laugh. This was the outfit we took him home from the hospital in. Notice how HUGE the onesie is on him! I didn't care, I really wanted him to go home in Texas Tech stuff!! Plus it was from his Nana and Papa, they were in town and I thought they might want to see him in it!


I can't believe I'm posting this AWFUL picture of myself! But hopefully with such a cute baby in my arms, no one is looking at me :) This was when we got home from the hospital, it just shows how teeny tiny he was!!


Here is daddy and Cade taking a little nap. He's all swaddled up and Raider is poking his head in hoping for a little attention (obviously, Raider and Roxy have taken a backseat to the baby :)


Here Cade is sleeping in his glider. Randomly as he sleeps, he'll throw his arms up above his head with out waking up. Then, he'll lower them back down. Its like he's on a rollercoaster in his dream or something.

Bath time! Here is Cade's first bath. He was NOT happy...so he got his revenge on us at bath #2 - he peed and pooped as soon as we put him in the water. He showed us!!

Me and my little dinosaur!

Here is Cade with one of his future buddies, Clayton (Jake and Erin's 3 month old). I did my best to wake Cade up for this picture but he was just so tired!

The Dr. encouraged us to give Cade "tummy time" everyday to help him learn to lift his head and build strength in his neck and back. Well, tummy time quickly turned into nap time and needless to say, we had to try again later :)

Here is Cade, officially one month old!! The teddy bear will be our point of reference on the monthly pictures we take. He has really filled out a lot, look at those cheeks! :)

Hope everyone enjoyed my novel :) Sorry its so long - I'll try to do a better job of updating our blog on a regular basis!
