Caden’s Dedication

Caden was 11 months old on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. Today, he was dedicated at his church.

Caden was all dressed up in khaki pants, long sleeve turtleneck shirt, and a striped sleeveless sweater. He looked like a miniature preppy college boy!

Caden is leaving babyhood fast behind him and has quickly become a toddler. He is crawling all over the place. He is beginning to pull himself up at anything, the couch, pant legs, chairs. He walks as we hold his hands.

Today, Caden was full of smiles. He was a very happy boy today. He look astonished as he sat on my lap in church, looking all around him. As his Pop held him when we stood to sing, he gazed at the high ceiling, the people around him, at the people playing instruments at the front of the church.

He was a good boy as he was held by his daddy at the front of the church, with his mommy standing beside them. The minister said a lovely prayer for him, asking for everyone to care for him. The minister reminded Jacob and Amber to raise Caden with love in a Christian home, showing him how to live by their example. That lesson should be followed by all of us.

Afterwards, we enjoyed snacks at Jacob and Amber’s home. Caden played on the floor with his cousins. He had a very special day, with both sets of grandparents, a great-grandmother, 2 aunts, 2 uncles (1 brought a friend), and 4 cousins enjoying the day with him.

Caden, we pray that you grow up to be a very fine man, with Christian love in your heart. We love you very much, Grandma and Pop
