a few hours early! My baby is 2 today (the 18th). He says he isn't... but he says no to everything you ask him. (ex. Kaden- do want to go to Disney World? "No"... Do you want a new swimming pool? "no") Lil Ollie had a blast with this when we were in the barber shop last week. He was asking him all kinds of questions just so Kaden would frown his eyebrows at him and say "No".
I have a small family supper planned with a cake and some red plates... but that is the extent of our partying. I know- sad- but I have learned from the other two that going all out on a birthday bash is soon to come when he will actually have a request of Chuck E Cheese (uuugggghhhh- I don't like that place AT ALL) so simple family parties will end soon enough! (and parties mean presents- presents mean more toys- more toys make this momma want to vomit... I am definitely cool with the NO GIFTS rule- but the kids never seem to appreciate that one.)
Any who.... Happy birthday to the little man that came along just at the right time. The Lord knows what we need and when we need it. I was always planning to have 3 kids- but Kaden came into the plan a little sooner than we anticipated. After the death of Bro David (which came alot quicker than we thought) I could see Gods plan in action in our lives once again. 11 days after he passed- the Lord blessed us with another gift from Heaven :) We are so thankful for him (Kaden) and for HIM! This little boy has made life worth living (as have the other two babies we have) He is a mess and can be as unfriendly as any child you have ever seen.... but if you catch him in his good mood- he can carry on a big conversation that you only catch 2 or 3 words out of. He is a chatter box! He calls me Mom-Mom for whatever reason. He calls Granny "Manny" and Granna "Manna". He asks you at least 50 times a day "What u doing?" and "Wheres Kyle?"
He laughs the best belly-chuckle-laugh EVER! He is 35 pounds of a big-ol-mommas-boy. He still takes a paci and has to have his blanket to rub on. (I have no will power on taking them from him yet and an older sister told me the other day that she didn't blame me. She said "I have never seen a 30 year old man walking around with a paci or a bottle so let them have it if they want it- it is not hurting anything!) He is my baby- I think that is why I let him be a baby. And JD is his daddy- chances are he will be a big baby forever anyway ;) j/k.... well.... kind of....
I must go do more laundry before I crash for the night. My house is in total shambles and I have company coming- Cinderella wasn't available so I guess I get to do it all by myself.... blahhhhh!
