9 Months old!!

9 Month old little boy Our little Caden is growing into a big boy! He turned 9 months old last week and it is hard to believe that he will be one in no time. At the Dr's office Caden had a clean bill of health and the ear infection is all cleared up!

Caden's stats:
18 lbs 10 ounces
28 inches long

Many of you have asked how Caden and Nia get along...here is a video of them playing together kind of. Nia doesn't mind that he takes/touches her toys...I really think she is trying to prepare him for when he is older and can throw and tug on her toys.

The other day we were at Grandma Marge's house and they have 1 step down into the family room, Caden thought he was big stuff when he figured out how to get up and down that one stair. I wish I had it on video, but he would go up one side round the corner in the hallway and come down the step in the other entranceway. Too funny. So back at home I didn't think that he would be able to get up our stairs since they are kind of steep. But he surprised me!

And also...a belated Congrats to Mark and Jeff for finishing the Capital City 1/2 marathon in Columbus! They did great and we are so proud of them! Columbus put on a nice event and the weather turned out to be pretty nice. We stayed overnight downtown in the middle of the race at the Courtyard which worked out perfectly. My parents came down for a little visit. They had breakfast with Caden, Kyley, Addyson and I and then we all headed out the front door just in time to see Jeff run by and then not much behind him was Mark! Talk about timing! Afterwards we went to a great pizza place called Boston's Gourmet Pizza, and they had fantastic pizza! Then we went over to Roscoe's house for a little bit and then back to home sweet home. Thanks mom and dad for making the trip, we loved seeing you! And thank you Roscoe's for hosting us at your house spur of the moment and just days before little Madelyn arrived. Congrats to your family!
