Lots of Company...Lots of Fun

Well, I haven't written anything since my birthday! I'm realizing now how long ago that was! Sorry to all of you who regularly check in. I'm going to TRY to get better about posting at least a picture or something at least a few times a week. It's just hard figuring out this mommy thing and WHEN I'm supposed to get everything done! I've been EXTREMLEY blessed to have had SO MUCH help getting used to things. I don't know HOW people do it on their own! My mom and dad were here for a few weeks and my mom has stuck around to help out. Today she decided that she's going to stay a little longer! She said that she wants to help finish the detail spring cleaning of all of the house and help me by watching Jaden so I can do a bit of work on my Masters. But, I think she really likes El Paso sun over MN winter AND she likes holding this little bundle of ours!!! :-)

Well, for those of you out there, you'll probably notice that our little guy keeps growing! TOO FAST if you ask me!!

Jaden has had lots of family as visitors. He met his 6 cousins and aunt and uncle from Austin a few weeks ago. Here are a few pics
The whole family

Cousing Matthew and Uncle Mark

Cousin Kate

He also met his 3 cousins and aunt Teri who live is Nashville this last week. They were here for Easter and had some Easter Egg hunting fun!

Playing with the girls!

I want to hold the baby!

Of course, he's been having fun hanging out with Grandma AND us too!

Out for a walk with mommy and daddy (it's actually getting WARM here!!)

Camila (S&K's goddaughter) was a little jealous of Jaden at first but, she seems to be warming up to him
A sunny day at the mission
visiting Daddy at work

I looked out the window one morning and I realized that we finally fit in with our neighbors! Stephen had parked the truck on the front lawn (a LOT of our neighbors always have cars on their grass). He was going to wash it and was vaccumming but, I guess he got distracted by the baby!

We are getting creative and learning how to do little things - like eat with one hand over top of a baby without spilling all over your clothes!
ahhh..bathtime. Jaden is liking baths more and more! We're finally figuring out how to keep him warm!

hanging out on the floor!

doing homework with Daddy in the sun

playtime with Grandma K
I sure love her!

she's a GREAT cuddler!
One of Jaden's favorite places to be is his new swing. He is a guy that likes to constantly be on the move!

He's also playing and sleeping in his crib a little more these days. Of course, this was posed just for a picture. But, isn't he cute?!?!


  1. Great pictures! It's like we are there. I'm glad that you are figuring out new ways to get things done while take care of Jaden. We are still working on that!

  2. Awww I miss you guys! The cuddle bug is just getting cuter by the day.
