"Baby Babette" (as Caden says)

Caden LOVES Justin Beiber's song "Baby." He wants to listen to it on repeat every time we're in the car, and actually cries when he doesn't get his way. In other words, I have a love/hate relationship with this song. He so cute and it makes him so happy, but I get the song stuck in my head all day!

I walked into the living room to see Caden on top of the coffee table playing his drum set to a Barney movie!

Caden wanted Hailey to have a turn with the guitar. He likes to assign us instruments to play in his "band."

Christmas was wonderful again this year. We of course had an amazing time with family. This year Auntie invited Santa over to Mimi's house to visit the kids and bring gifts. Everyone had a lot of fun! Then the kids put on a play about the Christmas story. My favorite part was when Caden "stole" Jesus from the manager scene and ran off. Caden's highlight this year was his new guitar. He hasn't stopped playing it since. He will sit for 30 minutes strumming away and singing songs. Music remains one of his passions. We are so thankful for Christmas and what it means to us as Christians.

My 2 Year Old!

Caden had an Elmo party at Tumbling Stars. He had a great time playing with friends and family. He especially loved hearing everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to him.

Caden's new favorite thing is a sucker! He says, "I want sucka!" in a demanding voice throughout the day.

Caden is very affectionate. He is always hugging and kissing his friends whether or not they really want him to. Then he says, "That's sweet!"

Jaime, Carson, Keaton, Nikki, Laney, Levi, Janna, and Nolan.

Braedon as the Tin Man, Caden the football player, and Eden as Tinkerbell. We had a great time together at the Fall Festival!

My mom, Star, Madison, and I got to see Mary Poppins! The show was excellent and we had some nice girl time together. We even met Mary Poppins after the show!

"I want the alphabet." Caden loves his letters! He named each letter as I placed them on the wall.
