After my own heart!

Caleb loves to help me in the kitchen. He completely enjoys cooking- and I love that! I love to get in the kitchen and create, cook and bake. One of the things he has been helping me with and I actually let him do on his own, was to make pancakes. He measured, mixed and cooked them all by himself. I was near by, of course, observing and ready to help if need be. We got one finger a bit warm, but he was brave and kept going. The pancakes were eaten quickly as they were very yummy!!!


We were blessed to be able to celebrate Jaiden with many of our good friends and family. We had so much fun eating and watching Jaiden open presents and eat cake. I do believe that he loved the tissue paper more than the actual presents. But he is now enjoying the toys much more. :) I ordered his cake this year, as I knew that it was going to be a busy week and I wouldn't have time to make it myself. I did feel a little guilty as I always make the kids cakes. But I must admit that Hermitage Bakery did an awesome job!!! The cake was delish, and as you can see from above, Jaiden loved it as well.

My baby boy is 1

January 2011
Just born 2-2
Our precious baby! was the day- my baby boy turned one! It was bitter sweet for me, knowing this was the last one. But at the same time, I knew that it would be so special. Jaiden has grown into such a sweet baby, he is crusin, almost to that walking point. He loves to eat and play. His laughter is SO infectious!!

I think back to the day that I discovered I was pregnant. Shocked is the only word I have to describe my feelings. Soon after (well maybe a month) I was happy and elated to have a new life growing in me. God knew what he was he was doing- he gifted us with a little man who has made our family complete. He is the laugh in a tired day, he is the snuggle in the evening, he is a ray of sunshine to our family.

I love you so very much, Jaiden. I praise God the day you entered into this world, and I will hold you dear till you leave it. You have brought so much joy and laughter to my life, and my heart grew a size bigger with you. Your brothers and sister delight in playing with you and taking care of you. You will never lack for playmates!!! I cannot wait to see what God has in store for you and I am blessed to be your mommy. " Love you forever, like you for always, as long as your baby you'll be!"
