My Sweet Boy

Enjoy the sweet pictures and video of Camden. He is becoming more interactive. He has started to grab for his toys and hold them for longer periods of time. He also loves to talk and blow bubbles. He rolled over from his tummy to his back on Saturday 2 times. He hasn't done it again, but we keep trying!

Only 6 more work days!!!!!!

Kaitlyn's Recital

Kaitlyn had her dance recital this weekend. She was, of course, the best one up there. She takes clogging, which is like the river dancers. She is AWESOME!!!! We tried to take a video on our camera, but for some reason it stopped. Enjoy pictures of my beautiful girl.

Here is a video from her last dance class before the recital

We Made It!

So we made it 1 week and now only 3 weeks to go, school that is!!!! This has been a VERY hard week going back to work and leaving my boy. I didn't know it was going to be so hard!

Daddy kept him Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. Monday was a pretty good day, but Tuesday was pretty hard. Camden was pretty fussy for Daddy. Nanny kept Camden Wednesday. They made a surprise visit to see Mommy at school. :) Grammy was suppose to watch Camden on Thursday, but Mommy's car broke down on the way home from school Wednesday. She was without a car and took the opportunity to stay home with me. Mommy needed that, no tears that day! Friday was a great day for Daddy and Camden. I think Daddy got the hang of it.

Hopefully my tears and phone calls home will get less and less each day. I only have 13 days of school left, I CAN do it.
My kids were really excited to have me back. I missed my kids. It was bittersweet. We had a fun week! They love talking about Kaitlyn and Camden. And I don't mind talking about them.

Camden has really discovered his hands. He just looks and looks at them. He brings his fists up to where he can really see them. We have been putting toys up to his hands and he brings them together. He is thinking really hard about trying to grasp them. After bath time he loves to lay on his towel and talk big. He smiles so much. I love being able to make him smile!

Kaitlyn has her dance recital this weekend. Her dance is so cute!!!! I will post her video after her recital. I don't know how she does clogging, but she is really good at it!!!! By the way, she is almost the same height as me. She has grown in the last month. When I fix her hair she now has to spread her legs apart so she can get shorter. And we almost wear the same shoe size. She is getting too big!!!!

Enjoy the recent pictures. Daddy took several for Mommy this week!!!! I don't want to miss a thing!

Look at those hands

Daddy sent Mommy this picture to show that I was doing okay while she was at school

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mommies out there!!!!

I had a great Mother's Day. I woke up to such a sweet baby at 4:45, which I didn't mind one bit. Kaitlyn wanted to make me breakfast in bed but I wasn't very hungry so she made me nachos for lunch. Kaitlyn and Camden gave me some really comfy polka dotted pajama bottoms. Aaron cleaned my house and did the laundry for me. He also went to the grocery and along with the groceries brought me 3 red roses and peanut butter big cups!!!!! He knows how I like those! Why can't everyday be Mother's Day???

On Saturday my Mom and Kaitlyn and Camden went to eat at Chili's. We went to the new one off 287 and Little Rd. It was very nice and not crowded. Camden was so good. He sat in his seat just looking at everything. I got him out towards the end of our meal and he just looked around. We then went to Cato and my Mom bought me and Kaitlyn some clothes. Thank you Mom!!!! We then went home so I could feed the little boy and then went to Kohl's for more shopping. Kaitlyn and Camden got some clothes for our trip to Indiana. I had a very nice weekend. Thank you for making it so special.

Please think about me as I am going back to work Monday. I am excited to go back and see my kids and my team. BUT, I am going to miss my sweet boy!!!! I am going to miss those naps during the day. I am going to miss the sweet smell of him while holding him during those naps. I am going to miss the smiles he likes to give me while I am eating lunch. I am going to miss HIM!!!!

I don't want Mommy to go to work!!!!

Hopefully the next 4 weeks goes by fast!!!!! You know I will be ready to go and out the door once my kids are gone for the day!!!!

3 Months Old

Camden is 3 months old today. Can you believe it? Time has flown by so fast! It seems like so long ago that I was at the hospital having him, but it's only been 3 months. I have cherished every minute we have had so far. He is such a joy. I was looking back at the pictures I had taken from 1 week old to 3 months old. He has changed so much. He has gotten chunkier and cuter every day.

He hasn't been feeling well since Saturday. He woke up with a stuffy nose and bad cough. I called the Dr. today and she said to put a humidifier in his room at night and put saline drops in his nose and try to suction all that crud out. Today, on his 3 months birthday, he was pretty fussy. He didn't want to be put down. The Dr. said it's because of all the drainage. I didn't mind holding him, if it made him feel better. So what if my house isn't clean!!!! He did like sitting with the door open while I planted some flowers. We did get some smiles today. And he sure can eat still!!!!!

We had 2 photo sessions for the 3 month pictures....different outfits. I think we went through 4 outfits today. All that drainage has made him spit up a little bit. Please say a prayer for Camden that he feels better soon. I don't like seeing my baby feel yucky.

Look at what a sweet boy we are blessed with. I caught these smiles today!!!!!

He has a horse tail on his bottom. Thanks Mandy and Jace for the cute outfit!!!!!

I love my family so much!!!!

Kaitlyn is such a special gift from God. She is such an AWESOME daughter. She got her TAKS scores back and only missed 1 on the reading and 1 on the math test. She is so smart. She really takes her school work seriously. She has such an imagination, always has. She is growing up and it is hard for me to realize that she is becoming a young lady. I am so PROUD of her. I love that she still loves to cuddle up in bed with me. I will always cherish those times. I can't believe we have such a perfect little lady.

Camden is such a sweet baby. He has brought so much to our family. He loves to smile and talk to you. He knows how to light up your day. He is always thinking with that serious look on his face. I just wish I could read his mind. I love the time when I nurse him. It has created such a special bond. I love looking at his little fingers and toes. I can't believe that Aaron and I could create such a perfect little boy!

Aaron is my best friend. I know it is silly but he completes me! I can't imagine sharing my life without him. He has brought me so much love and laughter. I thank God for bringing him into my life.

I thank God for my 3 great gifts he has given me!!!!

Tonight Aaron and I had a date night. Which is so important to make time for. It is hard to make time for each other with a new baby. We ate at Quiznos, which I love! And we went and saw Made of Honor. Very cute movie!!! I definitely recommend it! Those kind of movies make me stop and think about how much I love Aaron. Nanny came over and kept the kiddos for us. Thanks Nanny!!!!

Sleeping through the Night!

Camden has slept the last 2 nights through the night!!!! I am so excited! The first night I woke up in the morning and thought maybe I was so tired that I didn't hear him or something, but this morning I woke up and he hadn't woken up during the night either. He is such a good sleeper. He goes down between 9- 9:30 at night. He loves his night time ritual. We take a bath around 8:30 and then I rock him. I love that time of the night. Sometimes he goes right to sleep and sometimes he likes to cuddle and look around. He will wake up around 6 or 7 am and go back to sleep. He loves his morning naps. He will wake up around 9 to eat and maybe stay awake a little bit and then go back to sleep.

Wednesday we took Sister lunch at school. He loved looking around at all the kids. Kaitlyn loved showing him off to all her friends. I really enjoy being able to take Kaitlyn lunch or run an errand in the middle of the day. I am really going to miss that time when I go back to work, which is in almost a week. I go back on May 12. I am looking forward to it, but I sure am going to miss my boy!!!!! I will only have 16 working days and then I will be home for the summer. I can do it(hopefully with no tears)! I think August will be harder for me :(
