Kaden getting into trouble and quick trip to St. George

Here is Kaden getting into trouble. I thought he was going to cry when I looked over and saw Kaden under his carseat...instead he was laughing.

We headed down for a swim in St. George last week. It was a quick trip, but still fun. Thanks Vest Fam for the fun couple of days! Kaden loved swimming. He and his cousin Boston had a great time swimming while all the other kids were at school. ( Ahhh... to be under 5 yrs old again. Those were the days!)

Hoppy Easter!

We had a fun Easter this year. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Robinett's house to color eggs on Saturday night. We tried to keep Kaden as far away from the dye as possible. We let him hold some eggs after they were colored. He tried to eat them and the blue dye rubbed off onto his mouth. It was cute. On Easter Sunday we went to Grandma and Grandpa Bodily's house for some dinner and an Easter Egg Hunt. We got see see lots of family from St. George, Oregon, and Draper. It was a great weekend.
Kaden got to try some great food this weeked. Here he is trying an orange...
A candy necklace...
And a banana creamy. Here is his cousin who is about 4 months older than him. He liked having someone who was little like him.

Here Comes Trouble

Kaden has turned into a little toddler practically over night. Here he is chowing down on a Twinkie (Bad Mom...I know. It was so cute I couldn't resist. Plus, everyone deserves a little trans fat now and then, right? Don't anyone tell the American Dietetic Association, I might have my license pulled for a stunt like that! Ha Ha).

Here is Messy, Naked Boy. He loves food. I think he would eat a cup of dirt if we offered it to him. I have an electric baby food grinder, so I make the boy food in bulk. I cook up squash, yams, peas and anything else that will puree nicely and he goes through it soooo fast. I can't wait to see how much he eats when he gets older.

Kaden learned how to crawl a few weeks ago. He has been inching himself along for awhile, but has finally mastered it. His favorite spots to crawl are under the computer desk, into a cubby in the entertainment center, and under the table. Anywhere there is something dangerous to touch is especially tempting which makes him a joy to chase around all day.

I caught him in this pose last week. He thought he was pretty clever.

Here is a pic of his new haircut. Sariah gave him a cut a few weeks ago. Thanks Friend! He looks so grown up. I hate it and love it at the same time.

His biggest accomplishment is climbing on furniture. He started doing that about the same time he learned to crawl. I feel like over night I have a toddler instead of a baby. He was able to pull himself up onto the couch once. We were so surprised. I think he got lucky and had his footing just right using the ottoman as a boost. He hasn't done it since and I am thankful for that.
For other news, we have been keeping busy getting ready to move. It is exciting and we can't wait until the house is finished. Rob has been busy finishing up school. Only about 3 weeks left until graduation! YEA!!!
