I cannot believe my baby is two-years-old today! After Adina was born, we never expected to have any more children. We had our healthy boy and girl and couldn't have been a more happy family of four. I even tried to convince my hubby to make it permanent. Fortunately, he wasn't on board; because it wasn't but a couple of years after Adina was born, that my heart longed for another little one to love. It felt selfish to dream of such. So much so, that I didn't even share this desire with my hubby. We had already decided we were done. Then, one day, quite some time later, out of the blue, he said, "I wouldn't mind having another baby." What?! Well, he didn't have to tell me twice. Kaden Matthew was born nine months later.
He is so full of energy. You'll rarely find him without a ball in his hands. He gives the best hugs and kisses and loves to be held. He still doesn't say much, but he has gotten really good at sign language. He adores his big brother and sister, and the feeling is mutual. He's ORNERY! Let me say that again... He's REALLY ORNERY! Sometimes it's hard to know when to just laugh and when to take it more seriously. He loves to go for walks and watch the penguins at the zoo. He's super good at sharing and great at remembering his thank yous. He simply makes us smile. We cannot imagine life without this sweet, little bear, a nickname he
received for all the lanugo he had when he was born. Most full-term
babies don't possess such, but being five weeks early, he had plenty of
fuzz to go around. It didn't last long, but the nickname stuck.
I'm still working on getting those party pics together; but we had his two-year-old photos taken just over a week ago, and I thought today would be the perfect day to share a few of them. He's come a long way from his newborn pics.
