Baby Kade...

I suppose I should have known better than to commit myself to doing daily blog entry the whole month of November when I was super prego, knowing I would be having the babe half way through the month.  Truly I have much to be thankful for but you are just going to have to trust me on that one because I will not be finishing my thankful posts:)
But I will introduce you to the newest love of my life.  Our sweet baby Kade is too precious for words.  I feel like the luckiest mom every time I hold him.  I can't get enough of him! Even if I am super sleep deprived:)
 We  named our little guy Kade Jackson Rencher.  Kade was my number one pick and Jackson was Nate's so we compromised by using both.  Kade was born on November 12 and 1:03 pm.  He weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20.5 inches long. 
So far everyone in our house is a fan of the new addition.  Cambri loves holding him and smothering him in kisses.  If Kade cries when she is holding him she yells at the top of her lungs, "Mom the baby is crying!"  Sadie isn't as interested in Kade but occassionally says he is so cute.  When he cries she will say, "He wants me!"

Nate is loving that he has another buddy in the house.  They have bonded by taking many naps together and watching football.

I am completely smitten by my baby boy.  There is something so magical about holding him.  I can easily forget about the dirty dishes or laundry pile that is taking over my house just by cuddling him.  Pretty sure I could stare at him ALL DAY LONG.
 I have been spoiled with lots of help from family and friends which has allowed me time to just enjoy these first few precious weeks with Kade.  Both my mother-in-law and sister-in-law Janelle stepped in and did all my mommy duties for almost two weeks between the two of them.  I didn't have to get out of bed until 9 or 10 for the first two weeks after coming home from the hospital.  I can't even begin to express how much I appreciate them.  I miss them already.  Cambri does too.  As we walked out of Target the other day she said to me, "I wish Grandma could come back so she could buy us toys and you could stay home and take care of baby Kade."
(Maybe not the best picture of all of us but it is the only one I have with me and the kids)
When I really think about the fact that I am now in charge of three kids it kind of overwhelms me:).  So far we are doing well but I don't have any obligations and we often don't go anywhere all day.  The few times I have taken all three of them out by myself it takes forever to get us ready.  My house needs to be cleaned and the laundry truly is taking over, but I suppose that is okay.  I find myself being much more relaxed with this baby.  I really wish I could have been like this with my first child.  For some reason I was so caught up in being the "perfect" parent that I often forgot to just enjoy the sweet blessing that was mine.
I will get some more posts on here about the whole labor and delivery story and our Thanksgiving celebrations.  But for the moment I better attend to Kade who is now screaming even though .2 seconds ago he was sound asleep.

Megan, he is so precious! I think the third baby is the one we moms get to really enjoy. I've loved having my little (maybe not-so-little) Owen this time around. You look as beautiful as ever, btw. Congratulations! --Brenna
