Cousin visit

Last weekend, Mark's sister Sylvia, husband Dave, nephew Jakob and brand-new nephew Erik came down for a visit. Syliva was due 3 weeks after me, but ended up having Erik early as well. He's 8 days younger than Caden, but he is a CHUNK! And so very, very cute!

Mamma went back to work this week. And it's OK, not as bad as I thought. Grammy is looking after Caden during the day, and since she's so close, I can go down and feed him during lunch.

Here's what Mark likes to call 'working from home'

3 Months

Caden turned 3 months old on Tuesday. Coincidentally we all got together that day for a family photo. The first is my favorite - it was the first picture taken of the group (isn't that always the case?) but Parker just wasn't into it yet.
The second photo is probably the final version.

And this last one was just too cute not to post!

12 weeks & pictures galore

Caden is 12 weeks old this week. He's growing, and is a very happy baby. He's also a very good baby. We've recently discovered the miracle of the double-swaddle, so now he sleeps 6-7 hours in a row at night - what a difference that makes for mom & dad! He smiles and responds to you, which is so rewarding. He also enjoys the bath and diaper changes now - which makes them much easier on both parent & baby.

Anyway, without further ado - pictures galore. Including a comparison shot from when he was newly home. I think he's about doubled his size since then.

Caden is also happy to report that Daddy has almost finished the floor in Mommy's sewing/craft room, so Mommy is pretty happy. [Did you think there wouldn't be any house stuff here?]
