Mac's First Birthday!

My friend Abbey's little boy turned one.  He is such a precious little guy, and we were so thankful to get to join in the festivities.

Back "Home"

We got to go visit my sister and her husband in Charleston last weekend.  Because we lived there so long, we felt like we were back home.  We LOVE that place!  Aimee and Aaron are moving to Virginia soon, so we will be over 10 hours apart, and I'm so thankful we were able to spend the weekend with them.  

Does this boy look like either of us?  I don't know!

While we were there, Cade had his first experience with babysitting!  Aimee & Aaron graciously let us go to dinner for Ben's 31st birthday.  He loved his first babysitters and did great.  It was so fun to go to dinner like a real date again!

Us Lately

This is the way Cade likes to chill in his bumbo seat.  

Getting some cuddles with my boy....I know he won't let me do it much longer!

Trying out his new camping chair with daddy

Hanging out with his friends, Jackson & Colbie

Cade is 4 months old!!

He has recently found his feet and loves playing with them.  

Cade is officially rolling over, babbling & laughing a lot!  He loves chewing on his middle three fingers.  He is sleeping 12 hours at night, still taking 3-4 naps per day.  He weighs around 14 lbs according to our scale at home, but he has his four month check up and shots this coming week, so we will know for sure what he weighs.

14-15 weeks

Sweet Cade is 15 weeks old already.  He is practically a grown man, ha!  Last week (at 14 weeks), he decided he was going to roll over!  Here is a picture of him after he rolled over.  He is trying hard to roll again, but he hasn't quite mastered it!

He loves hanging out with daddy when he gets home from work!

My parents came to visit while my mom was on spring break.  It was so fun to have them and hang out with them during the week.  We went to Andersonville where they have a Prisoner of War museum and prison.  It was very interesting and sad.  

Here's the little guy at 15 weeks.  He loves his tummy time.

This year we celebrated Easter in our own home.  Here is our little man in his Easter attire. 

We went to church and had a nice lunch with friends.  Here is our best attempt at getting a family picture with the self-timer.

I love this sweet candid moment of Ben and Cade!

It was a beautiful day celebrating our Risen Lord!

A Visit from Ben's Brother & Family

Ben's brother, Brad and his posse came to visit us last weekend.  We had quite a full house with Brad, Robyn, Carolina, Colt, Scout and West.  Here is a picture of Cade with his twin cousins, West and Scout.  The twins are almost 8 months and Cade is 3 months old.  Cade's facial expression is hilarious--- he didn't quite know what was going on because we were all making loud noises trying to get them to look and smile....well, Cade looked but didn't quite smile!  It will be so fun seeing these boys grow up together.

Colt loved "Baby Cade".  He loved holding him and giving him kisses and hugs!
