Hadlee & Tanner

Okay, it's very hard to take pictures of a 2 year old holding a 4 week old...especially when that 4 week old is under 6 lbs.! :) I did manage to get a few that I like. I'm hoping that as he grows, so will the quality of the pictures. lol Tanner is one day shy of 4 weeks, and Hadlee is 2 1/2 in these pictures.

our little boy

Our wonderful kids!!


Love the way they're both looking at each other. :)

and more kisses! Hadlee LOVES to give him kisses!

New Addition!

Yes, Tanner Kaden has been home for several days now, but our lives have been very crazy! I'm sure all of you know that he was born April 23, @ 8:23 p.m. weighing in at 4 lbs. 5 oz. and 17 1/2 inches long. He was SOOO tiny - almost scary tiny! :) But sooo precious! He did great immediately following birth, but ended up in the NICU later that night. Unfortunately our little guy was in there for a whole two weeks! Talk about tough! Going back and forth to the NICU was anything but pleasant, but we all survived. We are so thankful to have him home now, and he seems to be healthy. So amazing to me how God has kept His hand on this little boy! With all the troubles in my pregnancy, followed by a difficult delivery, and 2 weeks in the NICU, I can't help but think that God has something special for this little bundle! Don't have time or space to recount the last 3 1/2 weeks, but God has been very good! Hadlee is adjusting well - even carried Tanner through the house last night. (Yes, her daddy was completely freaked when he looked up to see Hadlee standing there with Tanner :)) She is going to be an amazing big sister!

Here are a few pics from the last few weeks... hoping to have some good sibling pictures soon!
We feel so blessed to finally have this precious bundle at home with us and, as far as we can tell, healthy! God is good!
