Happy 3 Week Birthday, Love Bug!

Happy 3 week birthday Angel Boy! Daddy and I cannot believe that you are already such a BIG 3 week old! You have made this the best 3 weeks of our lives. We are so blessed to have you as our son. We often just stare at you in awe as we try to wrap our minds around the fact that you are OUR little boy! I thank God that he chose us to be your parents. What a great 'job' he has entrusted us with. While I do not want to wish time to hurry, I cannot wait to see what your future will hold. What will you look like as you grow up? What personality will you have? What will your profession be? For now, you are our PERFECT Little Angel. We love you so much - it is a love we have never known before.



P.S. Here you are in your favorite toy... your swing!

Meet The Grandparents!

We got all of the Grandparents over for dinner the other night. Here they are! Left to right:
Grammer (Brad's mom), Poppy (my dad), & Mimi (my mom) Poppy having fun with his new Grandson.

Mimi on feeding duty:)

Grammer loving on her Grandson, Cade.

Cade is so lucky to have his Grandparents so close!! We love you guys!

Splish Splash!

Mimi (my mom) and I gave Cade his 1st REAL bath yesterday! It was much more difficult than I would have thought. Cade was slipping everywhere and was not a happy camper. It definitely took 2 people for this process. As you can see I did not have an extra hand to get a picture during the bath. But at least I snapped this of our little 'Bundle' during the aftermath:)

She's In Charge

My friend Elena and her daughter Jadyn came over to meet Cade. I met Elena last year when she did part of her student teaching in my classroom. She was a natural! She is going to take over my class this year while I am on maternity leave with Baby Cade. Thanks Elena! It is stress free knowing you are in charge!

Cade Only Has Eyes For Dorothy

Yesterday Shannon, Tammy, and Baby Dorothy (DJ) came over for a playdate. We walked the kiddos over to The Big Belly Deli for a sandwich. I was a bit nervous but the babies did great! Cade slept through the whole lunchdate and DJ kept herself entertained the whole time. Thanks for coming over girls... Cade and I had a great time! Looking forward to many more playdates!


Cade must be dreaming here... what about? I would guess he either just scored a touchdown, or he was being chased by police and had to come out with his hands up! I just love his unique sleeping poses:)

My New Bed

Cade tried out his new bed this morning... he fell right asleep. I think he likes it!

Slumber Parties!

I cannot get over how much these 2 are alike. My two boys...

Cade's 1st Trip to the Fair

Our little trooper slept through the entire trip to the fair...almost. He woke up a bit at the end. He was a hit! He already has the ladies going weak at the knees:) Cade LOVES this sling! I do too since I can have my little man snuggled up to me.

Proud parents...

Don't you just wanna eat this frozen banana up with a spoon!?! :) How cute is this?

Are little star didn't even know he was being stalked by the paparazzi!

I think he is saying a prayer again:)

Have you heard about the latest fair food? Check out the sign below... Deep Fried Butter! How gross is that!?

Our 1st Playdate / Cade's 2 Week Birthday

Cade and I had our 1st playdate today! And what a perfect celebration for his 2 week birthday! We met Rhonda & Jana, along with their boys, Ryan & Taj at Fashion Island. I think it took longer to get out of the house than the entire playdate itself... :) We had a blast together! We were a parade of strollers.... all with little boys:) Here I go.... off to meet the girls! We all got married the same year and now had baby boys the same year. I am so lucky to work with these great girls! What great friends they are to me! And now their boys will be Cade's great friends.

The Little Men:) Cade (2weeks), Ryan (6 months) & Taji (2 months).

Lunching at The Nordstrom Cafe. It was a challenge to find a table big enough for 3 strollers... and also secluded enough not to bug other customers if the boys started to cry.

Who would've thought a few years ago that we would be sharing this experience together!? Love you girls! Thanks for such a fun day!

Daddy's Birthday / 1st Date Night!

Let's celebrate! Brad turned 41 yesterday!

Mimi (my mom) came over to babysit so that Brad and I could go out to celebrate. It was our 1st date night since having our Little Man. We went to the OC Fair. What a blast! Here we are as we are about to leave...

The babysitter with her munchkin... or her "Caders" as she calls him:)

Right when we got there we saw this show... it was so cool!

And how to you go to the fair without eating the junk food!? It was SO MUCH food that we wasted half of it! It was so good though!

Thanks for watching Cade, Mom! And thanks for a fun date night, Babe!

Our Modeling Money Maker!

Here they are as promised... Cade's newborn pictures!

How cute is this? Cade started to cry and Penny rushed over to see if everything was ok. So protective of her little brother already:)

Our Angel.
Cutest buns I've ever seen!

Mimi & Poppy (my parents) with their 2 grandsons. They were so excited to have the boys together.

'Nuff Said

His shirt says it all!

Part Jacobsen

I know I post a lot of pictures of Cade sleeping... but c'mon isn't this worth posting?? It is amazing to me to watch my 2 boys sleep. Cade is Brad's mini-me.

Bling Bling

My sis-in-law, Aimee gave us this idea to put our wedding rings in Cade's hand. I thought it was the cutest idea ever! Cade is most definitely a product of his Mommy & Daddy's love:)Such luck! Caught him during a 'smile'. I know they say 'smiles' this early are probably gas, but I don't care... I will take what I can get:)Love this! Cade stretches when he is tired and reaches both arms to the sky like we do when tired. I just want to eat him up!

Cruisin' on the Bay

We got to take Brennan (our nephew) on his first boat ride. Lesson learned... never leave the house without cheez-its. We had to stop mid cruise to get the little man his beloved crackers:) He enjoyed the duffy boat. The highlight was seeing a seal out sunbathing. Here is my brother Chris with Brennan enjoying the scenery. Living in Texas, this was a special treat! The new parents... out sans Cade. Mimi was at home babysitting.

Mimi with her 2 grandsons. Is she in Heaven or what!?
