Pumpkin Patch!

Took Caden to the pumpkin patch today. Cute as ever!

I'm also happy to report that the splat mat that I made is doing it's job:

New video

I posted a new video of Caden and this new sound that he makes - he kinda rolls his tongue? That's that best description of it.

Check it out here.

P.S. sorry for the amateur camera work. =)

Is he cute enough for....

Some recent pictures:

Caden loves to watch the laundry (gets this from his mama!).

Caden also loves to swing.

Ok, well, I have an ulterior reason for the photos - Gap is having a casting call for kid models. =)

STAND in the place where you are...

Caden is all about pulling himself up to standing now. He seems both surprised and indifferent to this new skill he has developed.

He's got his first cold/stuffy nose this week, so he's been a little out of sorts, but doing fine overall. He's adjusting to having Sara as his primary caregiver. He hasn't seen Grammy or Papa for nearly two weeks now, I can only imagine what his reaction will be the next time he sees them; excitement, or dismay.

Some recent photos, including the group first birthday party with the babies from Parent/Baby class at Evergreen. He also loves to play with the tub of toys in the living room.

Can you see what is happening in this photo?

Yesterday, I was working at the computer, Caden was playing in the living room. I looked over and saw this:

oh boy

Several weeks ago we got to go to a baseball game to thank mama (and her group) for the work they'd done on the new phone system. We had a nice afternoon. Kirsten snapped a great picture:

Not too shabby when your first two baseball games are in the dugout seats.

1- Visit to Omma & 2 - Weight Check, not in that order

2) On Thursday, Caden had his halfway-between-9-&-12-month weight check. Glad to say that he was 18lbs, 10 oz. Thats up 2 lbs, 10 oz from 6 months (he was 16lbs, 9oz at 9 month check just after we'd all been sick). That's also about 2 pounds in 6 weeks! That's what the Dr. called catch-up growth. Not quite back to the 25 percentile where we was, but back on the right track. I wasn't thinking anything was wrong, but it feels good to know for sure.

1.5) OK, yes, I'm sneaking one in. We hired a live-in nanny. She moves in today. Welcome Sara! We realized that for as much as we were going to pay for a child care center, we could pay a live-in, because they also get room & board. We have a big house, and Mark is a great cook - not a bad place to live. And a pretty cute and happy little guy to take care of.
Wait. I want that job. =\

2) About two weeks ago (technical difficulties with Photoshop Elements and Vista - have I mentioned that I !?$*&#*#!?#! hate Vista?) we went up to Canada to visit Omma, Godmother Heddy and almost all the great aunts & uncles. Caden was his normal charming self, and we ate like kings. There were more dishes on the table then there were people at it!

Some pix:
