Welcome Baby Kaden!

My Auntie Karen passed away 8 years ago this month. I still miss her and think about her all of the time. But today was a special day--her grandson was born. Her daughter Alyssa gave birth to Kaden Reece at 2:17 pm today! He weighed 6 lbs and 8 oz and was 19.5 inches long. Ok, when I held him, I could not believe how absolutely tiny he was! My smallest baby (Landen) was 8 lbs 5 oz!!! What a huge difference 2 lbs makes in a newborn. It seems so weird that my little cousin has a baby! In this picture you can see how tiny his head is in comparison to my MeMe's hand/rings....his head was the size of the PALM of my hand!

He is adorable--I couldn't get over how he wanted to sleep with his mouth wide open! I told him he was going to catch a bunch of flies that way!
What a precious baby! Welcome to the world! Landen is going to have a ball playing with you! (He and Landen will be in the same grade!!)
