5 years old......already?

I just can't belive my oldest baby is already 5 years old?  Where does time go?  It seems like yesterday I found out I was pregnant with him.  I remember the day, time, and every detail of that very special moment.  Caden was our little miracle. After trying for two years, our dream was finally becoming a reality.  Caden has blessed my life in ways I could never imagine.  Not only did he just turn five.......he's starting Kindergarten.  WOW!  I just can't believe how fast time really does fly by.   

To my little Caden,
You're the first born and how special you are to us.  We've learned so many things for you.  You've taught mommy and daddy to love unselfishly and to love in a way we never knew we could.  You've given us so many laughs over the past 5 years....and worries too!  We've learned never to take anything for granted.  God gave us a specail gift when you entered our lives......a gift we'll forever be grateful for.  WE love you more than you could ever imagine....and we hope you'll continue to shine with that precious smile of yours.  Thanks for making our family complete.  We love you little buddy!

Below are a few pictures from his birthday and his first day of school.  Whew...that was a hard on us.  I cried and cried.  However, Caden was fine and he loves school, so that is comforting.  

Happy Birthday, Caden

Here's his cool cute...he loved it!  Bakugans are his favorite right now.
We actually got a family pic!  That doesn't happen to often.  It turned out pretty well!
Caden loved loved loved all his presents!  He had a good time!
This pic shows just how good of a time he was having!
Caden was learning his routine from one of his teachers!
Caden hanging by his locker.....his locker was one of the reasons he was sooo excited about starting school!
Caden and Mommy.....trying to hold back the tears!

WOW!  Everyone has always told me time would fly by and boy does it.  My first baby is starting kindergarten!  It sure is hard to let them go, but as long he is loving it...that is all that matters.  His smily melts my heart!

  3. I remember before the wedding...and how many times you must have thought I was just so silly & crazy for saying how I hated that my first born son was in High School or graduation. You know now...I was remembering...''it was only yesteday I found out the miracle God was about to give us!''....Enjoy to the fullest, this ride you have with your sons' and daughter. For doesn't last long at all when we are allowed to keep them close & check on them, sneak that oh so precious cheek kiss in their sleep. I shall always miss it. Always. God truly did bless you with such beautiful children and a wonderful husband. I know you know how blessed you are. Hugs, Vicki
