We bought Caden a step stool so he could reach the sink to wash his hands, brush his teeth, etc. I knew it was a risk, since he is already a little monkey. It took absolutely no time at all for him to take full advantage of his new stool. Geesh… What did we think would happen?!?
Here are two Cadenisms I don’t want to forget…
1. Caden hates the wind blowing through his hair! We’ve known about this one for awhile. We first discovered it when he would freak out when we drove in the car with the windows down. Today we were outside playing today when he started holding his hand to his head whining. He got out of his Cozy Coupe came over to me and started trying to hold down my hair too and fussing. I asked him if he wanted to go get his hat. He told me yes so we went in and got it. After that he was able to play happily. So apparently Caden doesn’t mind the wind as long as his hair doesn’t move
2. Adam has taught Caden to tackle him. It is a very important part of their father son bonding I’m told. The funny part is that Caden has a hard time distinguishing between the words tickle and tackle. So Adam yells “Caden come tackle me” and he runs over as fast as he can like he is going to push him over except he stops short and tickles him instead saying “ticke-ticke-ticke.” It is super cute
He is growing up so much every day! Sometimes I just wish time could freeze so he can stay at this cute age for longer.
And here is a photo for you…Every time I’m ready to give the dogs away something sweet like this happens. This is why every little boy needs a dog
Oh boy! On Sunday morning we were all ready to go to church, but had a little time to kill. Caden was running around like a crazy man, and while running and yelling through the play room he tripped and hit his head on the book shelf. Of all the crazy things Caden does this wasn’t even dangerous! Since the gash was right next to his left eye and pretty deep, we decided he probably would need a couple stitches so it wouldn’t scar. It ended up needing 2 stitches. Fortunately, Christos is a surgeon and he came right over and had Caden stitched up in no time. We had a make shift ER set up on our kitchen table. We were very blessed to be able to take care of this without going to the ER! It doesn’t get much better than that! Caden was so tough, and recovered incredibly quickly after a popsicle and some Thomas the Train. He did the whole thing without anesthesia because the shots would stung worse than the stitches. By today he was much better although he still insists he needs a bandaid for his bo-bo
By the way, I made it to 4 before needing stitches and Adam made it to 3. At 22 months Caden holds the family record so far for earliest stitches (is anyone surprised?).
The crusty stuff is the Derma Bond (superglue, basically) that seals the wound (so we could do swim lessons today!).
