Month {Five}

Another month has come and gone. You are getting bigger each day! I swear you are growing at least an inch each night!
Height: 25 1/4 inches (honestly I didn't measure you. I'm sure you are taller than this...)
Weight: 15.8 pounds
Head: 15 3/4 inches
I cannot believe next month you will be six months old! It seems like your daddy and I  just brought you home from the hospital! You are getting to be such a big, happy, silly baby boy.
You and Mommy on the 4th of July 
This month was July 4th. We had a fun day at Gramma and Grampa Greer's house having a BBQ. You also got your first taste of real food, carrots. You loved them and ate them right up! You hardly got any on your face because I couldn't get it in your mouth fast enough.
You eating carrots for the first time!
You after you ate your carrots! So happy!
Daddy won his first demo derby on July 5th! We watched him get crashed into by all of our Heber friends! It was so much fun! You had a great time, and loved being passed around and hearing the loud cars. You are such a great baby to let mommy and daddy drag you to derbies... You have never cried or acted like the loud cars even bother you!

Jumping in your bouncy seat!
You have learned to blow raspberries with your mouth. Whenever someone is talking to you or you are in a good mood you are spitting at us! You get spit all over yourself, but it is the cutest little thing! I am not sure where you learned it, but I love it! I always say if you love someone you will spit at them! You have also mastered jumping in your bouncy seat. Every morning while I eat breakfast you just jump and jump and jump in your seat. You love it and just get the biggest smile on your face while doing it! You wear yourself out jumping and usually take a great morning nap from all your jumping!

You in your swim suit at 7-Peaks Water Park
Every Tuesday this month we have been going to 7-Peaks Water Park with the Goode side of the family; your Aunts, cousins, Gramma and Keldon have joined us there! It took a few times for you to like the water and get used to being in the sun, but you love it now! I put you in your floaty and we go down the lazy river and you just kick and kick your legs in the water. We have gone to the wave pool a few times as well and you like when the waves hit you. It has been so much fun being able to do something each week together. I look forward to going to 7-Peaks and love the time we spend together. You are always so happy when all of your cousins dote over you! They just love you to pieces and I can't wait for you to be able to run and play with them!

This past month daddy finished up his softball season. His team took second place. We have had so much fun going to watch daddy play. You wear your little jersey with daddy's number on the back of it. You enjoy being outside, and it makes me happy you have been so good while we watch dad. I will put you on my lap and watch everyone play! I hope when you get bigger you will enjoy it as much too, and maybe even play some sports too!

This month you learned to sit up all by yourself! I love that I can sit you up and you will just stay sitting for a long time. Sometimes you are a little tipsy, but for the most part you have got the hang of sitting up. You love being able to look around and watch everyone. I think you had such an easy time sitting up cause you have a small little noggin, just like your daddy! You like to sit up in the bath tub too! Such a big boy!

You still don't have any teeth, but you drool so much! Your shirts are usually soaked with slobber all the time! Before I always had to carry a burp cloth cause you spit up so much, now I need to carry one to wipe off your mouth from all of your slobber from spitting and blowing raspberries!

Cade, you are so much fun! I have loved this stage, so far it is my favorite. You are getting the funniest, silliest personality. I know each month I say that, but it is true! I love when I can make you laugh, usually the best way to get a good laugh is when I act like a complete fool in front of you! I love hearing your sweet laugh though. It is the best sound in the world! Most of the time, you are pretty serious. You just like to look around and observe the world around you. You are starting to get quite talkative. In the morning you wake up talking to the little animals on your bumper pad in your crib. You like to touch the fabric and talk to them. It is the best way to get woken up in the morning. Your sweet little voice is the best!

Cade, your daddy and I love you so much! You are our pride and joy! We cannot believe you are ours!

Month {Four}

My goodness you are growing SO much every day!
This month you weighed: 13.2 1/2 pounds (50%)
Height: 25 1/4 inches (75%)
Head: 15 3/4 inches (25%)
It feels like time is just flying by! I can't believe it have been four blessed months since you joined our family! This month wasn't nearly as busy as last month was! You had a lot of first's last month.

Daddy was in his first demolition derby this month! You had so much fun watching him crash into cars! I think what was the most fun for you though was all of the attention you got from everyone that was there! All of your Aunts, both sets of grandparents, and Uncle Keldon were there doting over you while watching daddy! Daddy got 6th place at the Bluffdale derby, it was very fun to watch and daddy enjoyed himself too.
This month was also Daddy's first Father's Day! You spoiled him by getting him a new watch and a phone case. You were a good baby that day, and we had lots of fun playing with daddy and seeing grandparents and having a BBQ!
You and Daddy Father's Day morning
You love to read books, and play with your toy trucks. You flap your arms and try to turn the pages whenever we are reading together. You like to look at pictures with brightly colored pages. I love that you like to be read to, it will be fun when you get to read stories to me!
Your lips. I love when you concentrate really hard they poke out!

It has been so fun to see your personality come out more and more each month! You smile and laugh when you are in a good mood or recognize someone you know. But if you are tired or not sure of the situation you are pretty serious!
You love to play with hands of whoever is holding you. You are obsessed with grabbing and holding onto fingers. When someone is talking to you, and they move their hands your eyes immediately watch and you start reaching out and grabbing. You also love to look at my watch and try to suck on it! This month everything goes straight to your mouth! Teethers and your Sophie the Giraffe have become instant favorites. You know that you can gnaw on Sophie, and you will chew and chew on her. As soon as I show you her, your mouth goes right open.
You love when anyone will look at you, sometimes you get bashful, but most of the time you flash a giant gummy smile at them! It is so sweet! You love people, especially kids. You look at them and start wiggling and going crazy! I can't wait for you to get big enough that you can move and follow behind. You are starting to move your arms and legs during tummy time like you are going to crawl away! You have mastered going around in circles on your belly! Every night I put you in your crib, and in the mornings you are all the way on the other side and upside down. You haven't quite grasped the concept of rolling, although you are almost there! You get half way on your side, and either roll back or suck your fingers!
You love tummy time, especially if the dogs are near by for you to watch. You have started grabbing their fur and collars. Luckily they are nice to you and just sit there until you are done. Tucker loves to lick your hands and face. He gets yelled at a lot for that! Sam has to check on you all the time whether you are in your crib or on the floor he always has to look at you. He stays in your room with me while I nurse you and loves to be in the bathroom with us while you are in the bathtub. Max just tolerates every one, he just likes to sleep! I think when you are older he will be your best buddy!

You are such a busy little guy! We have been watching daddy play softball on Monday nights and you love to watch everyone there. You sit on my lap or one of your grandma's laps and just look around!
Wearing your jersey to watch daddy play softball
You love to chew on your hands and suck on those two middle fingers still! I love it though! I don't have to remember to bring a binky with me, and when you are feeling fussy you just suck on them to make yourself feel better! It is so sweet! You are always covered in slobber from sucking on your hands and fists, one of these days you'll get some teeth but for now we will just put up with all of the slobber!

You sleep wonderfully still! I am so blessed that you like to sleep! You are taking at least two naps a day and sleep through the night! You are so fun in the morning! So smiley and love to play!
We got a new bouncer that you just love! You bounce and jump and play with all the toys! It wears you out.
It is so fun to watch you learn and grow. You are no longer a newborn, but a fun independent baby!
Cade, your daddy and I love you so much! You are our pride and joy! We cannot believe you are ours!
