fuzzi bunz

My friend Natalie has loaned me all of the cloth diapers she used for her babies. You can't get much cheaper than that when even if you buy the cloth diapers and use them consistently you can save around $1000 per kid! Right now Kaid is just wearing them at home since they are still so big he looks like he has a blimp-bum and many of his clothes can't fit over them. I love them. They hold better than disposables (we haven't had a blow-out in one yet!), they are so soft and comfortable for him, and he is so stinkin cute! The one unfortunate thing (for him) is that they have earned him a new nick-name, "my little fuzzi bunz" (that's the name-brand of the diapers).

Funky little man

Sleeping Beauty...

in a very masculine sort of way, of course.

Man a photo shoot is draining!

Tiny expressions

Kaiden had his two week dr. visit today. He's gained over a pound and has already changed so much. I kick myself for being so stereotypical, but I already look back at pictures from birth and feel sad that my baby is growing so quickly. At the same time I am loving watching the little man grow and can't wait to see who he becomes (ok, I admit, I also can't wait for him to fit into some of the cute summer clothes he has before Autumn is here:) ) We love you Kaiden, and all the adorable things you do with your tiny little face!

Tennis Time

This morning Kaiden had his first stroller ride. We walked down to the parks' tennis courts and watched Brandon playing/ giving lessons to our neighbor kids. And I admit, I couldn't stand just watching, so I played a couple games too. It feels so good to be able to move like a normal human being again, as opposed to waddling around.

Note the gorgeous mountain backdrop.

Kaiden did a good job of totally distracting Phoenix from the lesson.

The fun was short lived for Kaiden. He fell asleep as soon as the stroller started moving.

One week old

Kaid is one week old today! He is such an incredible placid. Bran and I have discovered we no longer desire to watch movies, we'd much rather sit and stare at him for 2 hours. :) I didn't know it was possible for one person so small to have so many different facial expressions.

He's Here!
