Cade's 2nd Birthday

We had Cade's 2nd birthday on Feb 26th, 2011. Thanks to everyone that came out!! It was a good time! We even had a CHOO CHOO come and give all the kids a ride.

Update on Sanders Family!

I know, I has been a while since I have blogged. But I am not good at writing things down!!! I will get better!!! Well, what is going on in the Sanders Family? The past two weekends we have kind of been laying low. Working on the house! Keith has been working hard on landscaping our pool! It looks beautiful!!! He did a really good job. Cade actually took a nap until 4pm on Sunday and Keith and I sat in our lounge chairs (first time ever) and just soaked in the view of the pool for about 30 minutes. It was nice! We also got our water fixed, so it no longer smells like well water!!! The house is coming together. We also planted two trees, hopefully someday they will provide lots of shade!!! Keith also started building a barn/storage building in the back. We actually got to put our names in the concrete!!! I think we are done for a while. May add some grass and a firepit at the end of summer. We will see!

Cade is doing well. We think he has turned a corner with all the sickness stuff!!! We are working on his sleep now. For the past week, we have actually put him to bed by himself. On Monday night he woke up at 2am and he kept crying! Finally Keith looked in the monitor and the kid took his diaper off!!!! So, what do you do about that??? BUT.....Last night was the first night he slept thru the night!!!! He slept from 8pm to 6:30am!!!! DAMN, a miracle!!!! Let's hope this continues!!! Of course mommy didn't sleep because I was waiting for him to cry!!! Maybe if this sleeping thru the night continues, I will start calming down and sleeping thru the night myself and get back to my 5:30am workouts!!! I am going to knock on wood!!! Cade is starting to talk in little sentences. It is so cute!!! He will say Daddy, McDonalds, school. I think that means, Daddy, I want to go to McDonalds and then school. We told him Daddy would take him to McDonalds in the morning if he slept thru the night! IT WORKED!!!! I will take anything at this point!!!

I do workout 1 to 2 times at 5:30am during the week. The other times I have been running at lunch and on Tuesdays my mother in law watches Cade so I get to go after work!!! Which is awesome!!! Working out just releases all the stress for my brain!!! I feel so much better after that!!!!

Well, that is all I have for now!!!

Father's Day

I know, I has been a while since I blogged! BAD! Well, Father's Day was good. Cade bought Daddy an Under Armour Golf shirt and socks. Daddy liked it alot! We went out to the house with Frank, Racheal, Delilah, Charlie and Jorden. We rode the 4 wheeler around the property. Cade kept wanting to go around and around on the 4 wheeler. He knows how to turn it on now. Here are some pics of that day.

Crazy Busy!!!!

We have been really busy lately...sorry for the delay in blogs! This past weekend we had our first weekend away as parents (kid free) and it was really fun! I was matron of honor in my best friends wedding. Pictures coming soon! The wedding was in Florida! It was a really beautiful wedding and Beth put a lot of time and effort into making everyone happy! The weekend before that we went to Houston for Keith's grandpa's 85th birthday. We took the 5th wheel and stayed at this really nice RV park in the middle of a shady neighborhood! So, it was kind of weird. But it was nice to see family and to see his grandpa! So, this weekend we are just going to stay put and relax!!! We took Cade to the flats about 3 weeks ago! It was alot of fun! We only stayed for about and hour and half, but he really enjoyed it. Cade is really starting to talk. He calls me ma ma for sure now. And we think he is starting to call Keith "Da". He likes to pick up a ball and say ball. We have also taught him a couple of sign language. He knows daddy, mommy, baby and ball! I am trying to read books to him, but he can't really sit still to read them with me. Kind of like Daddy!

Growing Up in the Workforce!

Ok...I have been working for Texas Workforce Commission going on 10 years now. Today, I just realized, I am getting OLDER! Since I have moved back downtown, I see familiar faces and new faces...the new faces are in their 20's!!!!! I just rode up in the elevator with 3 of them! I thought I was still the new generation of TWC? Well, I am wrong! There is one behind me! What happened? I used to be the 20 something running around this building...coming in with a hangover, sneaking people into park on Saturdays for tailgates, and having a blast! Now, I am a 30 something mommy...exhausted, but proud to be a mommy and work at TWC. I guess as I grow with TWC, this will keep happening. I am proud to say that I have worked at TWC 10 years now. Well almost. But not many people do that!

At my desk and I am about 20 pounds lighter now!!!! Just sayin

Look Ma, I can jump in the pool!

So, yesterday Cade and I went to the pool. He is starting to get really used to the water and he jumps in the kiddy part of the pool no problem. Maybe this isn't such a good idea! Because last night, he just ran and jumped in the big pool. I had to dive in and GET HIM! He went to the bottom! It was scary, but he took it like a champ! I think this kid thinks he is 6 years old already! I really do have to watch him 24/7 and keep my eyes peeled now!!!! Because he is running now and it is hard to catch him when he is doing the wrong thing!!!

Our house is really coming along! The rock work is done. I really like how the dry stack turned out. Attached is a picture!

Bye for now BLOG world!

"Ma Ma"

Cade is really starting to blab, I should say. But when he wants something, he says MA MA, MA MA! Really loud! But the funny thing is, he calls Keith MA MA too! So, we are working on teaching him the difference! So, it seems like, every night we go thru the same thing. He calls Keith Ma Ma, then we tell him, no, that is Da Da. I am Ma Ma! Then I say Ma Ma, Cade says Ma Ma, then I wave and say hi. Then we say Da Da, Cade says Da Da, then daddy waves and says hi. We do this over and over. He still hasn't gotten it, but hopefully soon he will get it.

On other milestones, we are almost done with formula..I know I know...he is almost 15 months and still on formula! BUT, we are down to about 3 ounces of formula and 5 ounces of milk. We had to go really slow with milk, because he has been on hypo allergenic formula for a year and milk was a whole new ball game to his little system. So, hopefully in the next week, we will be on MILK!!!! No more expensive formula! Daddy will be very happy!!! So will mommy!

Another thing we are working on is getting rid of that damn bottle! It is hard though...he is attached. I have tried to give him sippy cups of milk, but he won't drink it! I have tried to find a skinny sippy, kind of shaped like his bottle, but haven't come across one yet. He likes to hold his bottle with one hand and guzzle his 8 to 9 ounces in about 5 minutes! He really likes that milk!!!

He is growing like a weed!!! I was so worried when he was sick, but now he has totally made up for it! We need to buy him new pajamas...24 months!!!

If anyone has any advice, please comment! My ears are open...
