S: Cade Clinton: My Exciting First Year
BC: Made With Love By Mom
FC: My Exciting First Year | Cade Clinton
1: A precious angel has come from above to live in our hearts and fill them with love.
2: After much indecision, they agreed that I would be the perfect Cade Clinton Ringdal. | At 10:09pm on Wednesday, September 16, 2009 I made my debut.
3: The first few days at home were a flurry of introductions.
4: And after that, we settled into a comfortable pattern.
5: Sleep, sleep, cuddle, eat, bath ...and sleep.
6: Belle was busy loving me from the very start. If she wasn't giving hugs and kisses, she was holding me and posing for pictures.
8: What better costume for a 'little peanut'? | At just a month old, I was introduced to Halloween. Along with two hippie parents and one 'little stinker', we were a perfectly spooky family!
9: Then in December, a big guy in a red suit stopped by with presents and lots of 'ho ho ho'!
10: Captured in all of my naked, chubby glory!
12: Winter was full of visits and cuddles and... more sleeping.
14: In January, we hit the Mayan for some sand and sun.
17: So many things to learn in this first year... ...how to manage solids without having them run down your chin.... ...how to play and still stay upright... ....and how to hold your own against your big sister!
18: But we don't always fight. Belle is actually a pretty good big sister.
20: People say I look like my dad?!?
21: When summer rolled around, Mom brought out.. the hats! | Didn't she think about what they would do to my hair?
22: Between the pool, the lake, the campground and the park...
23: I had lots of fun my first summer... and I even learned to like my hat!
24: And if I thought it was all about me before, my first birthday was something else! My party, my presents, my (cup)cake, my friends... what a great day! (Too bad I was so sick... still lookin' cute in the pictures though!)
25: I ate my cupcake so fast Mom didn`t even have time to snap a pic before it was gone!
26: So now that I'm a big boy, I wonder what's next?
