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!
