Chase Alan (7)

It is hard to believe that Chase is already 7 years old! He lost two more teeth and started 2nd grade! It is hard to keep up with him, he is growing up way to fast! He is doing very well in school and even behaves himself (for the most part). He is such a great reader. We are so very proud of him. He is also playing hockey again this year and has come so far since last season. He has been working so hard at practice. Mom and dad spend a lot of time at the arena but it is all worth it. He can't wait to start games and score lots of goals! Go #10!! He has really taken well to being a "double big brother". He tells his friends and teachers at school about how cute and little she is.

Baby Chloe Elizabeth

I couldn't wait to meet you all so I decided to come a little early! My mom went to the Dr. for a regular checkup and they discovered that I was running out of amniotic fluid and I only scored a 2/8 on my bio-physical ultrasound so the Dr. thought it was better to get me out! Thank goodness my mom had auntie Amy and our friend Maria for nurses so she knew we were in good hands. After about 9 hours of pain free labor for mom I finally arrived on Oct. 17th at 5:15 am. I weighed 5 lbs. 4 oz and was 17 inches long! At my 2 week check up I weighed 6 lbs. 4 oz. so I am growing! Right now I am not much bigger that a cabbage patch doll. My brothers have adjusted well to having me around. They are pretty loud but I don't mind. They are just happy that I came early so I didn't ruin their Halloween. Thank you to everyone who has come to visit me, sent cards and gifts and for all the prayers and well wishes! I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life! I can't wait to get to know all of you.

Cayden James (5)

Cayden has been very busy lately. He turned 5, learned how to ride his bike without training wheels and started preschool. He goes two days a week for three hours and wishes he could go everyday. It has been fun for mom to be able to bring him to school now that I am home. I can hardly believe he is 5 and growing up so fast. He really is not the baby anymore! He is adjusting so well to being a big brother. He is always talking to baby Chloe and kissing her. It really is sweet. He is always asking her "are you Cayden's girl?" I wonder if it will change when she is getting into all his things? Cayden has also been having a blast in hockey! He caught on pretty quick to skating and, according to him, he is the best guy on his team. He works very hard to keep up with his big brother. They have only had practices so far but he is really looking forward to playing some real games. He got his jersey and was very proud! Go #3!!!
