Such a sweet song!

I heard a new song by Darius Rucker today called "It Won't Be Like This For Long" and was in tears driving home from the grocery store! It's so true, and it helps me to remember to stop sweating the small stuff. They are only little for such a short amount of time! Here are the lyrics, but listening to the song is SO much better:)

He didn't have to wake up
He'd been up all night
Lying there in bed and listening
To his newborn baby cry
He makes a pot of coffee
He splashes water on his face
His wife gives him a kiss and says,
"It's gonna be okay"

"It won't be like this for long
One day we'll look back laughing
At the week we brought her home
This phase is gonna fly by
So baby, just hold on
It won't be like this for long"

Four years later, 'bout 4:30
She's crawling in their bed
And when he drops her off at pre-school
She's clinging to his leg
The teacher peels her off of him
He says, "What can I do?"
She says, "Now, don't you worry
This'll only last a week or two"

"It won't be like this for long
One day soon you'll drop her off
And she won't even know you're gone
This phase is gonna fly by
If you can just hold on
It won't be like this for long"

Someday soon she'll be a teenager
And at times, he'll think she hates him
And he'll walk her down the aisle
And raise her veil,
But right now she's up and cryin'
And the truth is that he don't mind
As he kisses her goodnight
And she says her prayers

He lays down there beside her
Till her eyes are finally closed
And just watching her it breaks his heart
'Cause he already knows

It won't be like this for long
One day soon that little girl is gonna be
All grown up and gone
And this phase is gonna fly by
So he's trying to hold on
It won't be like this for long
It won't be like this for long

Visit from Zach and Lauren!

I had to throw these pictures on here because I love them... Caden LOVES his Uncle Ach and Auntie LoLo and he had a blast while they were here visiting. Uncle Ach (that's how Caden says Zach!) even got Caden to take a nap with him and it was so sweet!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Best of Friends..

Caden thought it was hilarious that Lucy chased him while he was on his ATV. He hid her frisbee under the seat so she couldn't get it! One of his favorite things to do is go to his Nanna and Papa's house and play outside and ride his ATV!! He also has a new found love of this swings, the higher the better! His laugh and smile are infectious. We are so thankful for him and the joy that he brings us!

First Smiles!

Addison started smiling at us around 3 1/2 weeks but I couldn't get it on camera until now! She has the sweetest smile and is very generous with them:) She is such a happy baby! And I had to put the silly one in there, she is just showing us she is sassy already by sticking her tongue out!!

A day at the Zoo...

We headed to the zoo on Jan 10th, the day we went into labor! We walked and walked, which obviously got things going! Caden had a blast, they have this bird exhibit where you can go and have birds come and eat from your hand, he thought that was the coolest thing ever. And I couldn't help but snap a picture of his... well.. crack. We were laughing so hard!
