Happy Birthday Cade!

Cade is 12 today! To be honest, I can't believe he's only turning 12. It seems like he's been 12 forever :) Cade is my homerun hitting, football throwin, beast of a boy. He came out huge and hasn't slowed down yet. He just passed me up in height (I'm 5'6") and wears a size 11 shoe. I adore him! He acts like a tough guy but is a sweet ole' softy on the inside.

Last weekend during a baseball game (I was not there), he smoked a line drive foul that went screaming over the back fence. (It would have been an amazing homerun had it not been foul!) There was a team warming up back there behind the fence and a little sister who was sitting on an ice chest. The ball hit the little girl and knocked her off the ice chest. She started screaming crying. Richard said Cade was visibly shaken and went on to pop out on the next pitch. By the time Cade made it back to the dugout, he was sobbing. Richard thought he must be hurt but instead he was upset about hitting the little girl. I love that about him! He was still shaken hours after when he got home when he replayed it for me.

My boy has a style all his own. He's the only boy I have that cares about his clothes, hair and shoes. He's definitely got some "swag" going on :) He's not afraid to start the trends...and usually does. This school year, it's been high socks and sperrys so far. (This was the first day of school. I can't believe how much he's grown!!!)

He's not afraid to try new things.  This year was basketball.  It didn't take him long to get the basics down.  He ended up playing on the 7th grade team too!  We were very impressed :)

Cade looks so handsome and so grown up. My favorite memory of him is when you first got Wesleigh in China and he would hold her hand when she was in the stroller. So sweet! ~Lindy
