Adelyn is attending preschool 2 days a week this year and we are both so excited! She started a few weeks ago and is loving every minute. She barely even says goodbye to us when we drop her off. Here are some pictures from the first day.

This is her school bag that she was given to decorate. She was the mastermind behind what you see here. I of course stayed up way too late gluing on ribbon and pom-poms as extra decoration.

She was also given a poster to tell more about herself. We included pictures, lots of stickers and answered questions like who are your friends and what do you want to be when you grow up.

Adelyn said her friends are Brody, Barrett, Presley, Gracyn & Aunt Corrie. When she grows up she'd like to be a teenager and photographer at Arnold Palmer Hospital.

Here are Adelyn & Presley. They have been friends since before birth, are 5 weeks apart, and have baby brothers who are also 5 weeks apart. I don't know if they'll always go to the same school but I hope they always get to take a "first day" picture together.

And just because I love a good comparison, here's our first day of school picture from August 2009. Adelyn was 10 months old and I taught 5th grade part time. She has certainly changed...

But then again...

maybe not.

One Month

Hi! My name is Caiden.

I love to sleep! 

Even when I'm supposed to be having fun.

I am one month old today & this is also my official due date. "Funny how that works" mommy says. Mommy also says we're doing pretty good but she'll be glad once I sleep all night. She thinks eating every two hours at night is too much. I think it's just right!

I've been awake a lot more the past few days. But it's really overrated in my opinon.

 Sweet dreams!
