So I have no idea if Cayden is trying to growl or just likes to make this noise but Mike and I have no idea what has made him to want to do it. And he does it alot...all the time and he has been for a couple weeks! Its pretty funny though...had to share =)

This month there have been a TON of firsts for Cayden. He has been changing soo much and it's so much fun to see him grow. When we were still in California Cayden started to get up to his knees and then his feet in his pack and play but never on any actual furniture. Well the night we stayed at my Aunt and Uncles on our way back to Idaho he pulled himself on their couch(with the help of him wanting to get the remote) Ever since then he is constantly getting up on everything!! Which at first led to him getting hurt alot...and I mean several times a day..here was his first battle wound.... This was by far the worst..luckily..but I am sure we will have many more. He didnt have very good balance which made him fall alot..it happened the day or so after we moved back. He smacked his head on the bottom shelf of where are tv is which is now why we have all of our pillows there....luckily he hasnt gotten hurt since on it. Now Cayden is able to stand easily on anything and everything...weather its the fridge, any wall, couch, table..he will get right up! Sometimes he will just stay on his knees and bounce around. He has pushed off only twice and stayed standing for several seconds so far. He does cruise along the furniture though.
Since we moved Cayden has been using the big boy bathtub which he loves because it gives him alot more play room and he loves his bath toys!
The other day he dumped out his toys to play with the basket they go into..this is soo Cayden!
As you know from the earlier post he his now clapping, and waving...it's really cute because he turns his wrist alot when he waves like the miss america wave. When he turned 8 months he started saying ba ba..and now he says da da but he mixes it alot with ba ba so alot of the time it just sounds like babbling. He also started earlier this month to pick up food very easily and put it in his mouth. Not soo fun when he is on the floor..he finds the tiniest things and puts them in his mouth, there have been times where we caught it too late and have no idea what he ate...even though he couldnt sneak it a couple nights ago..we had just cooked dinner and I picked him up to put him in his highchair and I smelled something really strong and strange on his mouth...turns out he was eating garlic..which explains the face he was makig. I now sweep often =) We have let him try yogart, cottage cheese, cheese, pizza, meat, and lots of different breads...but he pretty much will eat everything and if he sees food he wants it!
Here are some pics I took of him after church(the day after he turned 9 months)

Mike and I would always make Cayden clap and he loved it...he would just smie and laugh and we were anxiously waiting till he would do it himself. Well last week on the 11th he did totally out of the blue..and we were sooo excited!! I of course pulled out the camera and he wouldnt do it...but luckily I got this one...now he claps all the time and I think it is really cute!
On New Years day we had Cayden walk with his walker for the first time and he did it for a couple days then wanted nothing to do with the "walking" part just the toy part..so we have been trying off and on since and on the 16th he did it again and luckily I got it on video...he is slow but its fun to watch him. He also started to wave bye bye on the same day!! I havnt been able to get that on video yet though...

Apparently Cayden wants to go somewhere..like California (I WISH) but I must say he definately knows how a car works..I think his daddy is very happy about that. Maybe a future junior dragster? We shall see! But for now we just have a reckless driver on our hands =)

I have come to the conclusion that with Cayden..he could have no toys and be completely happy..and here is the proof. Cayden has started to let's just say become obsessed with things ltely and one of them is trash. Don't worry...he doesnt go through the trash can...its the trash that we put next to the trash can because it is too big to fit that he loves. And I mean the minute he sees something over there he gets all excited and crawls over to play. So last night it was the big yellow box...he likes this box because he likes to eat what is in it. I thought it was funny so I took some pics... He was entertained for a while which was nice for me

I would definately say it was a nice attempt to go sledding. I was checking out at Walmart the other day and saw this really cute sled for babies that wsa only 9 dollars and I just couldnt resist. So last week before Mike started school we tried it out...
I laugh every time I see this picture...I cant help but think of the kid on A Christmas story.. I think Cayden felt like him too..
So I took over on the pulling and it was a mistake..I turned my back to pull and took a turn too sharp and plop went Cayden face first into the snow...Mike tried to stop it from happening but it was too late...I felt soo bad and he had snow all over his poor little face...we decided to call it a day.

I am soo greatful for the relationship that Mike and Cayden have. I dont think I am going to have to worry about these two. It is soo adorable to see how much Cayden adores Mike. Even with Mike now in school he still makes sure to spend as much time with him as he can. On new years day I decided to try and capture the little things I get to see and must admit sometimes get jelous of on a daily basis =)
This is Mike explaining to Cayden that he isnt going to be around as much as he has been the past few weeks because he is going to be starting school but he still loves him...I thought it was really cute.

Well last week we officially moved back to Idaho =( don't get me wrong..it is really nice living on our own again but this weather is no fun at all. I am counting down the days where it will be in the 50s hey even the 40s would be nice =). Last year on New years eve I don't even really think I thought about it since we had just moved to Idaho that day so this year we were actually able to celebrate it. We had a very nice dinner and discussed our new years resolutions. We then had some fun with Cayden as you will see below (I couldn't help myself) and we stayed up till midnight and watched the ball drop, kissed then went to bed! Cayden of course just wanted to eat it...luckily he isnt a girl because he does not like anything on his head..
Hope everyone else has been having a good year so far!
