With traveling for work and potty training, we haven't gotten back out to see Nathan and the boys had yet to meet this new little guy who is destined to be their best friends. And yes, Jake, best friends FOREVER!
The husbands planned the menu (and did the cooking) and the women had their selves a cocktail (I might have had two and you all know what that means--Chatty Kathy!) And although it had been two weeks since we had seen the little guy, he was still so small and so completely adorable and lovable. His mommy looked AMAZING and really fresh for having a 2 week old and Daddy, well he looked right at home with his little boy in his hands and laying on his chest.
I'm not sure if I could be any happier for these two. They have watched a number of people marry, get pregnant and have a baby (Justin and I included) all while hoping their time would come. And it did. Just the way it was suppose to. He is perfect in every way and such a big miracle in such a little boy. We are so in love with this little man and we can't wait to watch him grow up alongside Kaden and Logan. Who knows, maybe Logan can be his Pledge Pop like Justin was to Jake...
Holding Nathan and getting to love on Nathan made for a great evening but what put it over the edge, seeing Kaden interact with Nathan. Kaden wanted his turn to hold his new friend. I wasn't sure what to expect since when Logan was born Kaden thought it was neat for about 10 minutes and then he went back to playing on his own. This time around Kaden didn't want to give him up. He was so content with just sitting there and holding onto Nathan.
Not long ago I announced that Justin and I wanted to have two more kids and that I had babies on the brain like no one's business but lately things have really kind of settled down and we seem to be in a zone. A good zone and life, is well, pretty great. Now we have went from 'wanting two more kids' to 'maybe one more' to 'maybe we are good with what we have'. Then I captured this…
Kaden is a great big brother but because the boys were so close in age he didn't really understand what was going on at the time. But here and now, he totally does. Not sure I could deprive him of being a big brother again, its just too precious to see.
And how cool is Nathan, he has his own Jones Soda! We wanted to get him a keepsake that would mark his birthday so we took to the web and had a few sodas created with a picture from the hospital and all his birth statistics on the back. Hopefully Orange & Cream Soda stays good for awhile cause not sure its currently in his diet.
