2: brand new you
3: You were only a few days old when we brought brand new you home from the hospital. It was an exciting time for us all! Brand new you was lying on the couch while Dad began to change your diaper. Dad had just removed your "dity" and was reaching for a clean one when, suddenly, you started pooping! Poo ran down the front of the couch and onto the rug. Poo ran down Granny's leg, who was sitting nearby. Poo was everywhere! As Dad began to clean up, he reached for the dity a second time. No one was prepared for what happened next.... You peed everywhere! The end.
6: "Say Mama!"
7: When you were 1-year-old you tried cake for the first time, took your first steps and said your first words. You were very good at saying, "Da-da" and would often request a "ba-ba" but still had not said "Ma-ma". One day you were sitting in your highchair watching your Mama make dinner. Mama looked into your bright, blue eyes and said, "Kaden, say Mama". But there was no reply. Mama looked at you again and said, "Kaden, say Mama". But still there was no reply. So, Mama tried one more time: "Kaden, say Mama"! You smiled sweetly and opened your mouth to say...."Barbara"! The end.
10: The Hairy Teapot
11: When you were two-years-old we moved to your yellow house. This was the first time that you had a real basement in your house. One evening, Mama was giving you a bath and you said you were scared of going downstairs to the basement. Mama asked you why and you replied, "I don't want to go downstairs! Cuz' there's a hairy teapot...and there's a hairy teapot so I don't want to go downstairs!" A couple of days later you repeated the same information. If Mama or Daddy asked you to go downstairs you would give the same answer about the hairy teapot. We asked what the hairy teapot looked like and you said, "It looks like a hairy teapot!" We asked you where we could find the hairy teapot and you said, "In the basement!" We were stumped?!? One day, we convinced you to show us where the hairy teapot was so we could get rid of it. We all went downstairs together and you pointed to a.........BOX! The end.
14: I'm not the "sun"...
15: When you were three-years-old we were coming home from an outing. You were sitting in the backseat of the car when you asked, "Dad, you're my Dad right?" Dad replied, "Yes, of course." Then you asked, "Mom, you're my Mom right?" Mom replied, "Yes, of course love." Then Dad said, "And Kaden, you're our son.", to which you responded... "I'm not the sun! I'm the moon!" The end.
18: I feel insouciant!
19: When you were four-years-old Daddy built you a climber for your birthday. The climber had a fort at the top and slide to get down. It had two swings in the middle and a tire swing on the end. The tire swing was a source of endless joy! One day, you had asked to be spun on your tire swing. Dad had recently given you a push so it was Mom's turn. Mom spun you a few times, which made you squeal with delight, and then gave you some gentle pushes. As you sat back and relaxed, enjoying the gentle swaying of the swing you said, "Mom, know how I'm feeling right now?" Mom replied, "No I don't love. How are you feeling?" You answered with one word, "Insouciant." | The end.
22: Ouch! | Your mustache hurts!
23: When you were five-years-old you would climb in Mom and Dad's bed and play a silly game with Mom. It went like this: Kaden would say,"Mom can I have a kiss?" Mom would respond with, "Of course!" and give Kaden a kiss. Kaden would then say, "Ouch! That kiss hurt! It must've been your mustache!" An offended Mom would respond with, "I don't have a mustache!" And Kaden would follow with, "Oh, then it must have been your beard!" The end.
