One of my favorite things to do is to watch David and Caden interact. They have so much fun together. David has this amazing way of always getting Caden to laugh uncontrollably. They are so cute together! I am so glad that David's job allows him to be home with our son as much as it does! They have such a sweet relationship, which is so important!
Coming home on the ferry (late) from a Sounders game last fall! He was wide awake!
Today Caden turns 10 months old! We can't believe it! What a way to celebrate by playing in the snow! All but one Western Washington school district closed for the day and everyone made it outside to play! It was so much fun! School is already closed for tomorrow! More playing for us!
Our first snow on Monday
The big snow today! Probably 4-5 inches by the time it was done snowing!
I can't believe it has been five years! I remember the day we met in the parking lot of Third Place Books! We had the best date I'd ever had. I knew after just a few hours that David was someone that I could spend my life with! At the end of our date, we drove down to Alki Beach to spend the rest of our evening. David excused himself and went to his car. When he pulled out a cooler of pink lemonade, I knew he was a keeper! We both feel so lucky to have found each other and now we have an amazingly beautiful family. We are so blessed.
For our fifth anniversary, David and I decided to get away. This was one of the reasons we decided to get married in the winter. We both love snow and snow sports. What a great reason to get away and play in the snow!
We headed to Lake Wenatchee, right outside of Leavenworth. It was beautiful! We rented a cabin, which came with about 12 inches of snow! The whole family came-David, myself, Caden and Sophie. We loved every minute of it! We spent some time in the town of Leavenworth but a lot of time just relaxing around the cabin and playing in the snow! Sophie was in heaven! She was begging us to go outside every chance she got! We went on a great hike in the snow, where I thought we might be eaten by a snow cat of some kind...thankfully we made it back!
We celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Mountain Springs Lodge. We actually thought we would get married there, but decided that having all of our loved ones attend was more important than a far away destination with tough driving conditions. We have visited many times since, snowmobiling and going on sleigh rides, but we just had dinner this trip. It was fabulous and Caden did great! He was very well behaved and enjoyed his dinner too!
We settled right in to our little cabin
The next morning, Caden touched snow for the first time!
Sophie LOVED it!
Off on our fantastic hike!
Sophie could run free and scare off all of the snow cats!
He thought it was so funny to look for David over my shoulder!
In the Baily family, we are very lucky! We get to celebrate Christmas for a week! With everyone's crazy schedules, we have to find a date that works for everyone to gather for The Bailey Family Christmas. With everyone living so spread out, it is best if we find a time that allows everyone to stay the night and then we celebrate the following morning...Great fun!
This year we decided to spend it at the Baily B&B-AKA David's parent's house! We love it up there because they live on a farm. Caden got to spend time with Great Grandpa and all the rest of the Bailey family. We had a great time!
Hangin with Grandpa
"I think I can, I think I can!"...he is still thinking about it!
Trying his first banana...We don't think he really likes bananas. He always makes a sour face!
Grandpa built a snazzy manger...all they needed was a baby?
