Happy 8 months Kaden!

he was not too happy about doing his monthly portrait session on the bed...

Can I just sit in front of the air conditioner please? much better....

Dear Kaden,

Today you are 8 months old! I say this every month, but it's all going by soooo fast!!! I try to imagine the first time I saw you in your itty bitty incubator, and I try to hang on to that feeling of first meeting you. But then I think about how amazingly BLESSED I am to know you and how proud I am to be your mommy, and I love you all the more exactly where you are in life!

What a precious lil nugget you are! You charm the pants off of everyone you meet, your smile can brighten anyone's day! You get so much attention, and you just EAT it up, just like I want to eat you up everyday! I just love your chubby little legs and your pudgy toes and your precious lil tushie! Your giggle is the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. And you LOVE to laugh, especially with daddy, he makes you laugh the most amazing laughs! I hope I never forget these precious little squeals that you make...they are definitely my most favorite sounds in the whole world! You are vocal, happy and I can tell you already LOVE to flirt with the ladies!

You aren't quite crawling yet, though you do crawl backwards a bit! You want to crawl so badly, but you just can't seem to get your right leg to straighten out when in your crawling position, I can tell it's frustating you! We thought maybe the hardwood floors might not be giving you the traction that you need, and our little playmat just wasn't cutting it for you, so daddy surprised you with this ABC playmat for your happy day. I took this pic of you when we came home from "school" and you saw it on the ground...it's nice and padded and I'm hoping it will help you move in the right direction...

You absolutely love to hang onto things and stand, if you could, I think you would do this all day!

You are so smart....Margaret (your wonderful daycare provider) says that you try on other kids shoes at daycare, even though you have never even worn a pair of your own shoes yet! You LOVE the pool, especially now that daddy found you the perfect boat!

you absolutely love to splash in the pool!

Along with your amazing musical talent (see bongos and tamborine videos), you adore banging on just about anything at all, hearing the different sounds you can create! We went to Pitfire pizza cafe last week in NoHo, and you were ecstatic about the metal tables!

look at my two front teeth!!!! You also have two teeth coming in on top, and I can tell these are some little toughies...I just hope they cut through soon, and then hopefully you can get a lil breather from chomper hell!

we spend this weekend indoors trying to protect your precious little lungs from the smoky air outside due to all the raging wildfires in the area. Even though we really try not to let you watch tv very often, we put in The Little Mermaid and got cozy on the floor and cranked the air conditioner.

You also love your new fun dinosaur puppet book that TT Nan sent you!!!!

Happy birthday sweet baby boy! I can't wait to see what this next month brings!

your mommy

  1. Totally just sighed and smiled throughout that whole post!! He is getting SO big and even more adorable! I just can't help but smile with each picture when I see that big, bright, happy, smile on his cute little face. Looks like he's always talking and looks like he's gonna be a drummer someday perhaps like Daddy? :) I love his excitement over the new ABC mat, too - looks like someone is happy for its arrival, as well - Hi Simon! :) Happy 8 Months Kaden!
