If any picture says Kaden, this is it. That little man has more personality bundled up in his body than anyone I have ever known. He keeps me on my toes and keeps me laughing. He never ceases to surprise me with the acts he pulls. In fact, we've taught him to say, "I'm a circus act!" and he does so proudly.
The night we arrived in Utah we went to Matt's cousin Rich's wedding reception. There was a little fountain with a shallow pool. It was a hot evening and I was betting Kaden would be in that pool before the night was over. I watched as he started off just running around the pool. Then, dipping fingers and fists. Next, it was up to his shoulders as he lay on the brick and reached his arms in. He tested his luck with a little wading to the knees. Finally, he was all in. Splashing, swimming, blowing bubbles, and making a spectacle of himself. He had people gathered around taking his picture actually saying, "whose kid is this?". I joined in on the picture-taking and pretended I didn't know him. He was so happy.
He danced around with Grandpa for a while trying to air dry. These two are so cute together. Dave always makes such a big deal out of him swinging him around, wrestling with him, and having a grand ol' time. Kaden was giggling and beaming.
He decided he was ready for a towel. No such luck. How about a blanket? That wouldn't be happening either, since it was ninety degrees. The only thing I had on me was a nursing cover. So, I hung it around his neck and he proceeded to steal the show while he ran and jumped around like Superman. This kid is awesome.
