{You Better Watch Out, You Better Not Cry}

Ryan, Kaden and I went to The Riverwoods Mall one night last week with
Angie, Greg and Abbie. Kaden was lucky enough to meet this guy....

I've got to hand it to Kaden... he knows when to turn on the charm...

Stop Apologizing already...

I am most definitely not sorry about the length of time between posts....
really....... I am not sorry..... okay, maybe a little.

Here's what you've missed. (it's alot, prepare yourself)
Kaden is growing soo fast. He loves pretty much everything about fall:
watching dad play flag football
munching on leaves, crawling on the grass
and goint to Aunt Et's cabin

We took a trip to the zoo with friends... which was a blast.
Kaden really loved looking at the animals, though I think he relates them all to our pup Izzy.

 Our little monkey is actually about the right size to be a monkey... go figure.

Also for Halloween he was Harry Potter!
(they both had glasses, but they didn't last long)

He loves to swing at the park, too bad he started to enjoy this right as the cold set in.
Not to worry, we'll get some swinging in on warmer days. 
He liked going down the slide with Ryan too.

And lastly we left this little guy in care of Shelly (BFFFF) and 
my sister Katie while Ryan & I took a little trip to Hawaii.

Needless to say, we missed our little guy. 

Ryan & I have been extremely busy with Kaden, Church, Work and School.
We got put into a new ward in which we both received new callings in the Relief Soceity and Elders Quoram. We love our new ward so much, but miss alot of our old ward buddies.
Ryan is doing amazing at work. He is one of the top Bankers in the nation and gets to go to Orlando this February for a sales conference. I am finished with my first semester back at school since having Kaden, and a busy semester at that.

We are excited that Christmas is just around the corner even though, in honesty, I can't believe it's here already.
I'll be blogging again soon, at least until the beginning of Jan. when school starts.
So check back... hopefully it won't be another apology.

For all those wondering about my life...

This is basically it.

1. an exciting or very unusual experience.  
2. participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises: the spirit of adventure.
3. a bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome.
4. a commercial or financial speculation of any kind; venture.

3 Years ago today--
I started on the grandest adventure of my life with my best friend Ryan.
Though our adventures have taken us up and down (as adventures sometimes do), 
I wouldn't have it any other way,
or want to go through them with anyone else.
I love you Ryan!

I wasn't going to have someone come and take pics of Kaden until...
he turned 2 weeks old and I realized (in horror) that he was growing at an incredible rate.
I called my friend Jess to see if she'd mind taking some pics of him.
She resides here if you are interesting in seeing more of her awesomeness.
She did such an incredible job and it was so nice to have someone who knew us take these pictures!
Thanks Jess!
They turned out so wonderful and I'm beginning to think that if we keep photoing Kaden so darn much he might turn out to be some kind of diva...but we'll keep up on the pictures regardless.
Here is a sampling of the many pics that I love love loved!

Early Arrival - {Kaden Ryan}


Kaden Ryan Kohler
7 lbs / 2 0z ~ 18 Inches Long
February 11, 2010

On Feb. 10th, I sat at work wondering if I had lost complete bladder control. After all I was 8 months pregnant, and it's been known to happen. After realizing that it could not possibly be my bladder, Ryan rushed from Park City while I packed our bags for the hospital.
About 24 hours later little Kaden Ryan was born.
The last 3 weeks and 1 day have been an adventure to say the least... It's strange to think that today was my due date because it seems like a lifetime ago that I was pregnant.
He came into this world on his own terms, and he has continued to show us
that he's in charge ever since.
So far we've found he likes to eat, sleep, be snuggled, and to be warm.
I'm so glad we have gotten to spend this time with him!
All those things I've always heard new moms say are all true... but you can't really understand until after a new baby has arrived--
Labor was truly that...labor, I really am exhausted, I really haven't gotten much sleep, it really is hard work, I really am paranoid about who is holding and watching him, I really have been pooped and peed and spit up on countless times, I really do worry about germs much more, I really do have a million pictures of him sleeping,  I really do check on him 25 times a night,
I really love Ryan even more because of him, I really could look at Kaden forever, 
I really do think he's the cutest baby in the world, and
we really do love him more than anything!

It's a little early, but I'm definitely nesting!
Sometimes I feel like I'm just rushing around, organizing and disinfecting all day long!
I made my own baby bedding, and (quite surprisingly) it turned out wonderful!
Ryan was able to paint the nursery and get the furniture all moved in, I absolutely love it!
In fact I've sat in my glider and looked out the window everyday since.
More pictures of the nursery to come... I have some more projects in mind.
For now I'll just keep up the scrubbing, cleaning, and preparing until our little guy gets here!
5 more weeks to go!
