the park

Kaden and I normally go for walks every afternoon. Mostly because he takes longer naps in the morning and because the afternoon is my only chance to catch some good sun rays. I desperately NEED a's pretty sad :( Anyways, Kaden decided that a 45 minute nap would be sufficient enough this morning so I made an executive decision to pass the time by taking a morning walk. We decided to stop at the neighborhood park and try out the swing and the slide. It wasn't the nicest day because the wind was blowing pretty hard for Kaden. He was taking long deep breaths. We didn't stay long but long enough for a couple of pics since this was our very first time. Every other time we pass by, there are always older kids playing and I didn't want to be the crazy mom who puts her 5 month old on the slide for a picture. He really enjoyed the swing so we'll probably be stopping by more often. But probably not until we find some shades for was pretty bright out too.

Last Friday, my sister, Bridget, got her Aggie ring. It's a pretty big deal! Apparently, you really don't understand it unless you're an Aggie. Anyways, Kass, Kaden and I left Friday morning to head to College Station because Bridget was getting her ring at 3:00. I was under the impression that there was some ceremony that we were going to attend, which was the reason we were asked to come. Not the case! Bridget just walked up to the table and got her ring AND we all followed to support her. It was actually pretty cool...I am very proud of my little sis :)

The main reason for posting this is not about Bridget getting her ring but of something much more! Kaden wore an AGGIE shirt in support of his Auntie B. Kass was nearly appalled that I actually let him wear it. Only for Auntie B though... He'll probably grow up and want to be an Aggie. We have lots of time before we have that talk with our little guy.

Best Buds

From day 1, Patch has always taken an interest in Kaden. Probably more out of jealousy than anything else. You see, before Kaden, Patch got everything...all the attention, all the new toys, walks every day. Now, he's second to Kaden! Kaden gets all the attention, all the cool squeaky toys and walks every afternoon with me. The only time Patch and Jess go on walks anymore is if Kass and I both go. So now, Patch thinks by snuggling up to Kaden, he'll get more of that attention he's been lacking as well as some playtime with those cool new baby toys. Patch is a BIG kisser, which is really disgusting when he's kissing my 5 month only baby boy. But what's a mom to do...

Just another day at the office

Kaden and I drove down to EnCana's office today to meet all the people Kass works with. It was nice to finally put faces with the names of people he talks about so often. After meeting everyone, we went downstairs to grab lunch from the Gold Coast Cafe and brought it back to Kass' office to eat. It was just like old times...having lunch in his office. We used to do that often when we both worked at Anadarko. This time we had a new addition...our sweet little prince. Kaden enjoyed testing out all of the new corporate furniture in Daddy's new office.
Trying out Daddy's office chair

The desk seemed to be a little more fun though!

Once we were done with lunch, Kaden and I made our way to the mall. I needed to buy a gift for a bachelorette party that I am going to this weekend. He feel asleep in the car and I thought he would stay alseep for at least an hour because he only took a 45 minute nap this morning. Not hardly! As soon as we entered Macys, he was wide awake. He was nice enough to let me look around for the gift but then soon became angry about being in the stroller and wanted he started screaming. At this point, I am in the dressing room trying on clothes...not for much longer though. I didn't mind the screaming but I didn't want others to have to listen to it. Kaden got his way...out of the stroller he came. Needless to say, our trip to the mall was a short one. The good thing is that I already got my workout in for the day. Lugging around nearly 17 pounds in one arm and pushing the stroller with the other will do it for me today!

For our Denver friends

Kaden is ready for baseball season! He's supporting his favorite team...The Colorado Rockies. We miss all of our Colorado friends so much. Please know that we are always thinking about ya!

5 months old

Happy 5 month Birthday to our little Prince! Here are a few pics from the last month.

Hanging out at Gigi Ma's house in El Reno, OK.

Our Little Texan!
Deep in thought on the back patio. He loves being outside!

This is what he gets to do when mom is away for the day!

all I want the bird's hair! Every morning after Kaden has had his breakfast, while I am making mine, he plays in his entertainer. There are lots of cool things on this toy BUT the only thing he ever wants is to get a hold of the birds hair. I see much cheaper toys in his future ;)

ugh...almost got it

DONE...and now very frustrated!

Kaden has been eating solids for a couple of weeks now. He loves his oatmeal cereal! There wasn't a doubt in my mind that he wouldn't...he's a Copelin ;) Thought I would post a video of his first time eating big boy food in his big boy chair. As you will see, he's a big helper too! He likes to help bring the spoon to his mouth and then help the food in with his hands. After a couple of weeks, we're still working on trying NOT to put our hands in our mouths while eating. Pretty sure he learned this from his DAD!
