The Beginning

Our support team!

We were so excited to finally meet him. He was 12 days late and all!

This little boy loved his daddy from day 1. This was the start of a special relationship..


Mommy looks tired and daddy looks thrilled!

The Fredericks boys with their latest addition

Well, technically it began when daddy and I got married:) But I decided I needed to go back and start the story from the BWK. (beginning with kids!)
April 4, 2006 our lives were forever changed when Caden James Fredericks entered the world!
The labor began at 5am on the 3rd, Daddy was excited because it was opening day of baseball so he got to stay home and watch. We walked 3 miles around Greenlake trying to keep things going and at 5pm we headed to the hospital, Swedish Ballard in Seattle. The labor was long and hard and finally after being stuck at 8cm for 3 hours I got an epidural and Caden made his entrance 3 hours later, all 9lbs 1oz of him! Our midwife, Sally Avenson, was amazing and made the experience all I could have hoped for. Jordan and Nana were there the whole time to watch and support us. Caden nursed the second he were born and we were in LOVE!! We went to the hospital with 3 names: Mason, Noah & Caden. But once we met him, we just knew he was a Caden.. And that's where it all begins:) After a short 24 hours were were headed home!
