The Future's So Bright You Gotta Wear Shades!



Isn't she so cute. I couldn't help from cracking up when this picture was taken. Her GG Ma got her these cute glasses for her birthday.

Happy 1st Birthday Cadence!


Today is the day! It is very hard for me to believe that a year has gone by. Wow. How life has changed! A year ago today our lives started a new trajectory. I know that it hasn't all been easy, but it certainly feels that way right now. I guess hindsight isn't always 20/20. I do know that I love this little girl with all my heart. Her innocence and happiness is infectious. I work and have worked with A LOT of kids. I honestly can't think of a little one who is so consistently upbeat, social, and engaging. Regardless of my parental bias, Cadence has given me a renewed appreciation for humanity and a perspective (that I once had) on how to again view the world. If we all still had the optimism, wonder and openness from our youth, the world would most definitely be a better place. Happy Birthday little girl. I love you. ~Dad

so, Cadence starting walking

Here is a video of Cadence walking. She has been stumbling around for a couple weeks now, but officially started 2 weeks ago when she strayed away from the couch and headed for the front door. It has been non-stop ever since and she especially likes chasing Raleigh, or as she says RaRa.

3 days left! - 9 months old


first days of standing!
