Happy Birthday Kaden!

Happy 1st birthday Dude! I'm so sorry we missed your party! I was really looking forward to seeing your sweet face. I've missed you!

I've been thinking alot about you lately...remembering our first days together. Lounging in the tropics, laying under the ceiling fans in the big yellow building, sipping a little formula...staring into each other's eyes. You, dressed in that charming purple striped onesie (although my mom didn't get a picture of you in it!), in the unforgettable red, white, and blue "All Star Pup" outfit.

We'd daydream about our families, and we waited, and waited, and waited to meet them. Boy, did we luck out or what?! Ain't life grand here in OKC?! (Even if you do have FIVE sisters!)

I was wondering if your hair was growing? I sure hope your mom finds time in her busy schedule to post a couple pictures of you so that I can have one to stare at as I plan our future!

Take Care Big Boy,


Your future girlfriend,

Hey, Kade, you are gonna have some serious competition! David and Jettson will be in OKC soon! DG will be such the princess surrounded by all these boys catering to her every whim! :)

We missed the big 0-1 party too. :( We'll have to all get together later in the summer for a big blowout celebration. Personally, July 4th BBQ, burgers, and hot dogs is sounding absolutely mouth-watering to me after so much Vietnamese food! It's all been great too, but I'm sure I'm gonna be ready for a cookout by the time we get home! :)
