January 30

Time does fly when you have a newborn. Things are going pretty well. Kade is a thriving little boy with very healthy lungs :)

We took Kade in to be weighed today and he is up to 9 lbs (so he is passed his birth weight).

Tonight he will go to his first home basketball game (Nooksack vs. Burlington). He made his first game appearance vs Sehome over a week ago and he did very well (slept the whole time).

Back to Work for Daddy

Well, after a very exciting week its time for Daddy to go back to work and for Mommy to keep on caring for Kade.

Yesterday was a little rough trying to get back on schedule even though Kade has been Sleeping better at night. He has only woke up 2 times the last two nights.

Last night was a little rough becuase Kade got circumcised, but all seems to be going well. Kade is feeding well and seems to be gaining his weight back ok.
Here are some more pictures!!!!

Home Sweet Home!!!!!

We are home!! We arrived home at about 1:00 this afternoon.  

After unpacking Daddy had to go brave the flood waters to get some prescriptions for Alli.  

Kade slept all the way home, while Daddy drove 10 mph below the speed limit.  

As far as visitors go for the weekend, Alli and I welcome visitors, but would like people who plan to stop by to call ahead to make sure we will be here and can plan for your arrival.

Alli gets her staples out tomorrow at 2pm and we have a nurse coming out tomorrow morning to check on Kade.

Hope everyone is doing well!

He likes his hands

Proud Papa!!!

Good News all around!!!!

We got two bits of good news this afternoon. One being that Alli is doing so well that we have the option to go home tonight, which we are declining because of the flooding.  Two, my schedule has been lightened because both practice and the game tonight has been cancelled, so I get the opportunity to focus on taking care of Alli and being a Dad!!!!

Kade is doing very well, after a long night of fussing he sleeped this morning and this afternoon for a bit.  He is also feeding very well.

He weighted in at 7 lbs 11 oz this morning.

Alli and I got the experience of parent hood this morning when Kade sprayed us with Pee at about 3 am  :)

Hope everyone is staying dry and safe in the flood.

More Pictures to come!!

Day 1

Daddy got to the hospital after a 21 point loss to an upset baby  :(
 (I think his Mom told him about the loss, and wasn't happy about it)

Other than that Kade is doing well.  He pooped 4 times and pee'ed 3 times today.   
Alli and Kade got a two hour nap tonight, I am jealous.

Alli is doing great, she got a shower this afternoon and got to walk around a little bit. 

Everything is going well!!!!

More pictures to come!

Alli is doing great, doctors were inpressed with her stomach muscles and she is recovering well.

Here are some pictures from Kade's first moments...

January 3rd

Four days late and still waiting....
Last visit with the doctor came up with very little progress. Next appointment is on Thursday and if the Kade isn't here by then I will be induced.

Today Tyler and I made several meals to keep ourselves busy and to stock up for the arrival of Kade. Tyler also had to keep his mind of the Friday Harbor/ Nooksack game that he missed (just in case Kade decided to enter the world today).
TJ headed up the team and took care of business winning 53-47. Tyler was getting updates every 3-4 minutes from parents that made the trip. He wasn't much help at the grocery store :).

Hope everyone is doing well. Happy New Year!

Tyler and Alli Mitchell

Tyler and I met in July 2005 were married August 4, 2007 and welcomed our first child, Kade Allen Mitchell on January 5th, 2009. It has been a crazy journey, but one that is definitely worth taking. To us, everything Kade does is adorable and our hearts constantly melt.
