My Newest Obsession

Caden Lane Holt

January 26, 2010
10 lbs 1 oz
20 inches long

Proud Big Sister, Kylie

He was born Tuesday, Jan 26, at 8:57 pm and came home to be join our family Thursday night. He is absolutely perfect and we fall more in love every second. He hardly ever cried unless we're changing his diaper which he absolutely hates :( He sleeps a lot and eats every couple hours and is a super calm kiddo. He just chills out most of the time. Kylie adores him and just loves to be my big helper. She helps feed him, dress him, put his blanket on him, and put his paci back in his mouth. I guess all those dolls are paying off :) I spend most of my time staring at him watching him breath and watching Kylie love on him. We thank the Lord for this gift and can't wait to see what His plans are for him!

Our hospital experience was pretty amazing. The birth-parents and birth-grandmothers were there and everyone had a chance to say "hello" and "see you later" one last time. They are amazing people that made the most difficult choice I could ever imagine making. They changed all our lives and we will be forever indebted to them. Please keep them in your prayers as birth-mom goes home with battle wounds, a tired heart, and empty arms. We love you dearly L & E and can't thank you adequately!

Life is good.

Congratulations! Caden is precious (glad to hear he is such a good baby)! He beats me by one ounce on birth weight :). Tell Kylie I think she is going to be the BEST big sister.

My prayers are with the birth parents and families.

SO happy and excited for you!!

Hmmm, I thought I left you a comment the other day when I read your post. Somehow I must have exited early. So ... first of all, congratulations!! What a huge blessing this little guy is!

I also wanted to share a funny story about my daughter. It was while she was reading your entry over my shoulder talking about that cute, cute baby. Instead of retyping it, I'll link you to my blog. Enjoy the precious days and years ahead with Caden!

Juli (circus winner gal) :) (Thanks again, by the ways!)

What a little bundle of joy; congrats! Looks and sounds like you have a great "helper" :-) We'll be back in AZ in April and plan on having a party to get all the old school Plunge people together with all the kiddos so we'll look forward to meeting Caden then!!!! I'll keep you posted.
