Kade Smiling

Kade is now 7 weeks old. He has been smiling more regularly which has been awesome. It honestly melts my heart every time I see him smile. Kade is still waking up every 2-3 hours at night, making me delirious at times. Last night Tyler fed Kade so I got a 4 hour stretch of sleep. I never thought I could be so happy to get 4 hours of sleep.

Visiting the Washburns (February 15)

Rylie and Kade

February 17
I borrowed a swing from my sister that goes sideways and Kade loves it. When he gets fussy and it's time for a nap it works wonders.
Kade has started smiling regularly. It seems like he is trying to talk back to Tyler and me, but of course we can't understand him. It's just nice to see him smile at us and it not be due to gas.
Last night was a good night. Kade slept 2 hours after each feeding, which means I got to sleep for 2 hour chunks. I hope that time increases....
Kade is also over his first plugged/infected tear duct. I am happy to stop rubbing ointment into his eye lid (he took it like a champ).

It's hard to believe that it is half way through the month. Hope everyone is doing well. Soon spring and summer will be here. I am looking forward to the warmer weather.

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.
