My sweet son Cade is so much fun!! He keeps us laughing and on my toes daily!!! I keep thinking that I need to write down what he likes and doesnt just so I can remember so I thought I would do that on my blog. Cade is 2 and half and he is just a ball of energy. He still loves to play basketball and baseball but has picked up a new favorite hobby...being a referee. I guess going to the gym all the time he has realized how much fun it is to blow the whistle and run up and down the court. Now you would think that just blowing the whistle would be enough but he also has picked up some phrases like.. "Out of bounds," "Foul," and a couple more. It makes me laugh when we go up to the gym to see daddy and he instantly asks for the whistle (because I made a rule that they stay in the gym and dont come home with us) and he tells me to start running and I end up running up and down the court shooting layups while he runs beside me critiquing my every move. The other night at my game one of the refs who I have known for a long time gave Cade an official whistle!! OH MY!!! He was thrilled and ended up blowing it in the game and stopped the play, ha!! At least everyone laughed and didnt get mad at us.
Cade has slowed down on eating but loves yogurt, all fruit, hotdogs and chicken. He will eat steak and pork chops that my dad cooks on the grill. And he loves cheese. He enjoys getting things out the refrigerator by himself and for that reason I think a lock is in our near future. He LOVES to play outside and therefore we try and leave the house once a day to do something outside. Inside he likes to shoot on his hoop, play with blocks and climb on everything. Cade still LOVES Matthew and will give him toys and play with him. He hates to see MJ cry and usually makes me get him if he starts. Cade has started a new love and hobby and its for music. He asks to play my moms guitar everytime we are at her house and he plays it a few times. He plays and she sings. He also noticed a trumpet and has been trying to play that as well. My mom has even taught Cade the name of each guitar string. He cracks me up!! I think a guitar will be on his Christmas list.
Cade has slept two nights in his toddler bed but has decided he wants to move back to his crib. Not because his brother is in it now but because he just likes it. SO...we are going to borrow a crib for Matthew until Cade is ready to move out. I am not pushing it because he doesnt climb out and goes to bed willingly.
On more of a "boy" note...Cade has noticed that his bodily functions make him laugh and he loves to do them often! Today is the day that the paci is going to be restricted to the crib only. I am tired of having to find it and he doesnt need it so its in the crib to stay. He has asked for it a few times but I tell him where it is and then distract him.
Promotion Sunday at our church happened last week but with us dedicating MJ Cade didnt stay long. Well this past Sunday the teacher had to pry him off of me and he screamed at the TOP of his lungs!! Oh my all the teachers including the childrens director heard him and it was quite embarrassing when they realized it was Cade. Change has never been a strong point for him and I am anxious to see how school will do. I will warn his teachers and just pray he does ok! We shall see!!
Every night when I put him to bed we read a bible story and he loves naming the men in the bible that he knows.. Joseph, Peter, Jonah, Noah (his favorite) and Jesus. Its so sweet to see him soaking up all that I read. Then I sing 2 sometimes 3 songs and then we pray. He is so sweet and likes to pray for all of his favorite people. It sure is a sweet time and I love it!! Then when I walk out the room I tell him sweet dreams and that I love him. He says it back to me and we end up saying "Love you" about four times. Are you kidding??!! I will stand at his door all night to hear him say those sweet words!! Oh how I love this boy!!!
On Cade's horizon... Potty training!!! Stay tuned :)
