Happy birthday party Kaden!!

My baby is one! How did that happen already?? We had his party today. My favorite part was the cake. When Justin was one, I had to stick his hand in the frosting to get him started, and even then, he didn't want much to do with it (you can see a picture of his first birthday party in his Justin - 2nd year folder). Kaden showed none of the same restraint! Lots and LOTS of pictures in his brand new Kaden - 2nd year folder.

Another one bites the dust...

Justin has now lost TWO teeth. And one of his top teeth is extremely loose, ready to go at any time.

Family update...

Kaden is now working on molars #2 and 3. At the same time. One on the top, the other on the bottom - opposite sides of the mouth. Ouch. He's still his usual happy self, but at night he needs a bit of tylenol to help him go to sleep.

Justin is almost done with first grade. Next week, I'll start reminding him to say goodbye to his classmates. I don't think he's realized that even though we're not moving for a couple of months, after next week he won't be seeing most of them again. :(

Darrell's last class is due to graduate soon! His unit might be picking up one more time, but he won't be working with them much as his drill sergeant time is up before they're done. I can't believe how fast these last two years have flown by!

I've finally been officially accepted to K-State's grad program! I'm starting off with a big semester (12 credit hours), but one of the four classes only lasts the first month so it shouldn't be too bad. One of the other four is a 100-level undergrad course (a pre-req for a certificate program I'm also doing). I think I can handle it. :) I'll have half of my course requirements done by the end of the semester! Since I still have NO CLUE what my thesis will be on, that'll give me extra time later to work on it.

I took Justin in for a routine physical recently. He's 57 pounds and 49 inches tall! Completely proportional, as he's in the 75th percentile in both height and weight.

He still has only one missing tooth. Three or four others will be following soon.

Only a couple weeks of school left. He'll be doing a summer program on post like he did last year. SO convenient for me and lots of fun for him.

A new video of Kaden

Kaden is now crawling and cruising like a champ. And you can see it here. :)

Finally, some new pictures

I finally uploaded a few new pictures into the boys' latest folders.

Here's our lone tulip. Two running years of bad tulip crops. The daffodils did great, though.

Another good one

Speaking of teeth

Kaden popped his first molar through. And I have no idea when it happened. I was tickling him about a week ago and noticed it. ALL the way through.

I'm pretty sure he's working on another one at the moment. He's been waking up at 4:30 three nights in a row now, and has his hand jammed up pretty far in his mouth. Luckily (for me), he's gone back to sleep after some comforting.

Did I mention that he's crawling for real now? No more belly scoot. I rather miss it.

Ok, I understand that this could be a long process and in a few more weeks, I won't get so excited about it, but we had our first showing yesterday! Woo!

And we have another scheduled today. Woo hoo!

Let the offers come rolling in.

This could change everything.
