3 months

I just can't believe Cade is three months old already. It seems like just last week, we were preparing for his arrival and wondering how we were going to do it with two little ones at home. He is a wonderful blessing and such an easy baby to care for. I hear people say that a lot about their second child, that they're so much easier than their first, and I can't help but wonder if the child is actually "better" or if the parents are just better at handling things the second time around. Either way, our life is still chaotic, but has also settled down in a way. We're getting this two kid thing down, and hopefully aren't too bad at it. :)

Back to Cade, he's just a joy and growing so fast. He seems so big to us, although people always comment on how little he is and are surprised when we tell them he's three months old. They usually mistake him for a one month old, until they see him hold up his head. He's got pretty good neck control these days and will just sit and look around. He's also starting to grab at things and can hold on to a toy for a few minutes. He constantly wants something in his mouth and has found his thumb on several occasions. Don't know if that's good or bad. Ella never was a thumb sucker. Anyways, he's very social, loves to cuddle, and will fuss if he can't see anyone, then stop fussing as soon as someone is in his sight. He's full of smiles and coos. We've had a few chuckles, but we're still waiting for that first real belly laugh. I'm so excited to hear it. I remember how Ella's first belly laugh brought us both to tears. What a sweet sound. Speaking of Ella, Cade loves his big sister and will just watch her in amazement for the longest time. I can't blame him, she is pretty entertaining. haha. He is sleeping so well, too. For the last week, he has been sleeping for six or seven hours straight at night. I told you he was an easy baby! Okay, I could go on and on, but let me just say he is beautiful, we are madly in love with him, and so, so proud to be his mommy and daddy. :)

Beautiful boy...
Holding his head up. Way to go, Buddy!
Trying to get his ring in his mouth. Loves that little ring, by the way...
This is him most of the time, with his sweet, sleepy smile. Seriously, have you ever seen anything cuter?!
