Flashback Friday - Kaden Michael

This is perfect because not only is it Friday, but it's Kaden's birthday. So here's a look at his first year on this earth and then on Sunday I'll post about his b-day and celebration, etc.
Once upon a time there was a little trickster of a baby. He made his Mommy's doctor think he was a girl so much that she told his Mom and Dad that it was 100%! Then, on the day he was born, he came out a boy!! Kaden I was so shocked when you were born and I looked down and saw that you were a boy! We thought you were a girl when I was pregnant and called you Amber Paige for 4 months! I immediately fell in love with you, though - of course! You were so sweet and beautiful!

We were all immediately thankful for a baby boy!
(Audrey almost cried when she heard you weren't Amber, but as soon as she saw you, she forgot about it!)

Your brother and sister were so proud of you!

Audrey ALWAYS wanted to hold you. Even when people would stop by to see you, they had their work cut out for them to actually get their turn to hold you!

Kyle was a little put off by someone else getting so much attention and affection. He wasn't always the best he could be with you, but when he was, he was a real kind brother!

You were just the cutest bug!

I just want to grab you out of this picture right now and hold you!!

You were a gem on your blessing day. What a good trooper you have always been with long days! It's not easy being the 3rd child and having so many things going on all the time, not to mention almost living in the van all day - but you don't mind at all!

I have more than one picture of you smiling in your sleep. You have always been the happiest baby I have ever known!

I don't know where you put it, you being the smallest baby out of my 3, but you are a great eater.

Kaden you are so blessed to have a sister and brother who adore you so much!

Every morning Audrey is so excited to see you and it never dwindles throughout the whole day.

Kyle has gotten so much better at being more gentle with you and you have become friends and are able to play together now. He loves to make you laugh.

Kaden I don't know what I would have done this last year without you!

You have brought us all so much joy in our lives. I have honestly never known a baby to be so easy going, satisfied and happy! You bring a smile to all of our faces numerous times a day! Thank you so much for changing our lives for the better. I know that for me personally, you have made a really hard year 1,000 times better for me just because you are such a positive Spirit in this world. I love you so much, Kaden. Love,

Kaden, you are our cute little peanut, and we love you so much! Your mom wasn't exaggerating when she said you are such a happy, easygoing baby. We love the twinkle in your eyes and the funny noises you make. Happy Birthday from Grandma and Grandpa Anderson.
