HaPpY nEw YeAr!

So life has been very busy at the South household the last month and a half, hence I haven't been blogging! I went back to work, Kaden started at Ms. Melissa's (which is going fantastic), we celebrated 3 of Kaden's firsts-Thanksgiving, Christmas and now New Years.  Each time I think about his first Thanksgiving or his first Christmas, I get a little teary eyed because I know there will never be another "baby's first Christmas". However, Justin and I were very blessed in 2009 and had a lot of things to celebrate. Kaden's arrival, a new sister-in-law joining the family, friends getting married and friends announcing their pending arrivals. Kaden will have such great playmates! We certainly believe that 2010 will only bring bigger and better things to us and our family and friends.

Kaden is now 4 months old, my how time flies, he weighs a little over 15lbs and is over 26 inches long which is in the 85th percentile for height. We still aren't sleeping through the night but I think we are getting a lot closer. We are slowly introducing rice cereal into his diet and the first attempt didn't go so well because he was sooooooooooo hungry but the next few attempts went much better and you could see the excitement on his face each time a bite came towards him. He is loving his Baby Einstien jumper and is really enjoying watching mommy and daddy playing Super Mario on the Wii. (He loves the sounds and the bright colors.) He is getting so close to rolling over but hating belly time certainly isn't helping him any. Not too be surprised by the little monkey was spoiled during Christmas, he got so many toys and some of them we haven't even opened becuase we have NO ROOM. Which brings us to our next exciting news.....

We have decided to put our first home up for sale. This was a decision which we have been thinking about for a very long time, we love our home, we love our neighborhood and it is so close to work for both of us. However, we need more room, maybe not right now but certainly over the next few years we hope to grow our family more and thuse we will need more space. So we thought why not list it and see if it sells, it will make someone a perfect first time home. As for the new house, we are hoping to stay in the same area if it all works out but chances are we might be moving to Olathe or Lees Summit to get more house for our money. Wish us luck!!

We certainly don't want to forget about the dogs, Stoli and Brodi are still doing fantastic with Kaden. They love to lick his toes and fingers and Kaden giggles each time they do. The doggies have been a little depressed lately since they haven't been able to run like they normally do because of the amount of snow we have been getting. I believe we have received over 15 inches so far and while I am sitting in sunny Scottsdale, KC is getting hit again with another 5 inches or so.

Here are a few pictures from the last few months. We wish everyone the best in the upcoming year! Here is to 2010!!
