Welcome Cade!

So much has been happening in my life, notably 2 of my biggest dreams being realized.  The first one just happened:  I became a Grandma!  I flew to Kentucky on April 6, 1 day after Cade's due date.  I felt sure the little guy was going to arrive that week (as did everyone else). 

While Cade was ready, Christe's body was not.  She never did dilate.  Finally, on April 15 her doctor began induction procedures and Cade did not tolerate the contractions - his heart rate would drop very low. 

And so, at 8:28 am he was delivered by C-Section, screaming and healthy.  Thank you God.

Oh yes, the other dream being realized?  When I return, I will be getting my IKEA kitchen!  Pictures of the remodel will be posted here, for sure.  Stay tuned.......
