Just some recent pictures that I love and an update....

My sweet little Kaden...almost 2!

Little Austin hamming it up again!

Serious boy-after his shots yesterday...

I could kiss this face all over...the sweetest!

Here's a little update:

Austin is up on his hands and knees and he acts like he is about to take off! Any day now he will be crawling!! I can't believe it!!!What a sweet little think Austin is though, he smiles and belly laughs constantly. We love him more everyday and we are seeing his little personality emerge! The other night Kaden had to go on time out for something he did to Austin and when Kaden came up to him to tell him sorry, Austin grabbed on to his hair and started pulling on it! It took Kaden by surprise and he was like "HAIR HAIR!" Mike and I looked at each other and just chuckled because it's already starting! We had Austin's 6 month check up yesterday! He is 17lbs 13oz and 27 3/4" long! Still a big boy. He is in the 50th percentile for his weight and 90th for his length. Doctor Macias says that he looks great and that he is very cute...of course! He had 3 shots, so yesterday was not his best day. He seemed fussier than usual last night and he did have a fever last night during the night. I hate shots!!! Poor little guy even cried before he had the shots like he remembered from last time. It was heartbreaking and as always I had to TRY not to cry myself. Kaden watched with a very concerned look, but deep down I think he was just happy it wasn't him. Kaden was really sweet to the doctor and gave him "five" and knuckles and proceeded to jump almost the entire appointment. It's his new thing...Dr. Macias was really impressed that he catches such air when he jumps, he said most kids don't learn to jump that young. Kaden even gave him a hug when he left the room. Overall, Kaden is amazing and hilarious. Last night he snuck a bite off the cutting board and when he put it in his mouth he said "DELICIOUS!" It was the first time Mike and I heard him say that. We laughed about that for a good half hour. These boys of ours are just a light in our lives and everyday we try to enjoy them and the age they are, because we all know how fast it goes by!!! Easter is this Sunday! Can't wait to see how the boys do with everything! Happy Easter to everyone!!!! XOXO The Byrums....

Marchey march....

Austin 5 months

Kaden 23 months

Wow, it's been awhile since I have posted an update on here! Sorry, we have been so busy as usual! Things are really good. The month of Febuary flew by... and I can't believe that we are already in the middle of march!!! Ahhh! Time needs to seriously slow down. Kaden is almost 2! He will be 2 next month. He is saying more and more words everyday and he is my little mockingbird. He repeats everything. Like most 2 year olds, his new favorite word is "no", of course. He continues to surprise us with his outgoing personality and also his love for his baby brother. He loves Austin more than I ever thought he would, it is the sweetest thing to catch him kissing his brother on the forehead when he thinks nobody is looking. Austin loves Kaden too and smiles pretty much the instant he sees him. It makes my heart melt. I can tell they are going to be close buddies. Austin is 6 month tomorrow!! Another shocker....that just seems crazy to me. He is also doing remarkably well. He is trying really hard to crawl, but has yet to get up and move on his hands and knees. He scoots and rolls all over the place and I'm continually leaving the room and coming back finding him far from where I left him. He is starting to be on the move!! He is really really sweet and smiley little guy too!

Mike and I finally got to get away by ourselves this past weekend. We took a little trip to LA and saw a Laker game. We had a really fun time together, just being able to have a conversation without being interrupted was really nice too! We stayed over night in a really pretty hotel in Agoura Hills and then headed home on Monday. It was short but sweet and we really enjoyed ourselves!

Hope you feel updated! XOXO Love, the Byrums
