The past few weeks

This sweet little boy is going to be 1 month old tomorrow...big sigh. But for today he is still only 3 weeks! The past 3 weeks have flown by way too fast. We are so in love with this sweet baby boy and I can't imagine him not being in our family. It's crazy how quickly a new baby just fits right in. We sure do love him, and all of his many little facial expressions!
The "stretch face"
The "mouth wide open passed out face"

The sweet little yawn face
 My favorite, the "owl lips"
And the sweet little sleepy face

I love this one of his double chin, he is quite the eater!
Mom, stop taking my picture
Precious little hands
Here is Cade's first picture with Bunny at 1 week old.
At his first Dr. appointment (5 days old) Cade weighed 7lbs 7oz (almost back to his birth weight). We went back the following week for his 2 week visit and he was already up to 8lbs 6oz and 21.5 inches. I'm telling you, the boy loves to eat! He is such a sweet baby, we've all been enjoying lots of snuggle time with him!

Carson and Avery love him so much! They love kissing his head and feet (we've been working on not kissing his face all the time, especially since Cade already has his first cold which he caught from his big brother and sister...I knew it was inevitable with having older kiddos around, but I still wish he was a little older before he got sick the first time. He has been so pitiful when I suction him, it makes me so sad. But let me tell you, if you don't have a nosefrida, go get one. It's a totally disgusting little device used to suction babies noses, but it works so much better than the bulb suction) Anyway, Carson and Avery have been adjusting pretty well to having a baby around. They want to help a lot, which can be a little overwhelming for mommy sometimes, but I am just so thankful that they love him and have accepted him with open arms and hearts!

 First cousin picture! And yes, Carson is wearing Avery's dress and tutu (they had been playing dress up... and yet another reason it's so good Carson has another boy around)
Carson and Avery have been keeping pretty busy the past couple of weeks. They had Texas week at school a couple of weeks ago.

Then MiMi stayed with us last week during spring break to help out. It was wonderful! Carson and Avery stayed very busy with fun trips to the Arboretum, and the Heard Museum. Plus lots of fun outside playtime. 
Planting flowers
Carson loaded up these crates and said he was going to the deer lease.
Backyard campfire and hotdog roast!
Reading their babies some books.
I am so thankful for my mom, she kept Carson and Avery very busy last week so that I could enjoy one more week of recovery and lots of quiet time with this sweet boy!

  1. Such a sweetie:). It is so nice to have so much help to get a chance to know your new baby & rest. And it's overwhelming when it's time to take it on by yourself! good to see that last post & this one. Glad to know he's doing so well. Hope you are too! And I figured out with my 3rd that I didn't care how much I carried, held or snuggled him, I just wanted to enjoy him little! It's still my mantra with him...even when he's wiggling out of my arms to crawl away;).
