Gobble Gobble

The only picture I got of him in his outfit. We had a minor accident which I will leave out the details. We had to change!!!!

We had a great Turkey day, as Kaitlyn calls it. Aaron and Kaitlyn buttered Robert up and Aaron put "Robert" in the oven. Kaitlyn named the turkey Robert. Kaitlyn told Camden, "Next year you can help Daddy rub butter all over the turkey." We made all our fixins and played with Camden. We are so thankful for our sweet kids!

He has started to pull up on things on his knees. He would go up to the back door and look out the window.

And now he IS crawling. He is going fast! We really have to watch him now.

Aaron's family came over and we had a good time of food, family, and Cowboys. I think Kaitlyn and Uncle Mike had the BEST time out of all of us! Mike played Wii with Kaitlyn. He had just bought one a couple of days before so Kaitlyn was showing him all the tricks. We have never seen this side of Mike! Kaitlyn said, "This is the best Thanksgiving ever!"

Enjoying my Thanksgiving dinner!

I am so thankful for Aaron. He is such a wonderful husband who takes great care of us! I am thankful for Kaitlyn. She is such an AWESOME young lady. I am so thankful for Camden. He was prayed for for so long. What a blessing is his to our family. I am thankful for my family. I am so lucky to have the family I do. They love and support us! I hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving.

Get ready for Christmas. It will be here before you know it.

9 Month Pictures

Today we had 9 month pictures taken. Camden did great! He hadn't had a nap, so I wasn't sure how long he would last. We were able to get some cute shots. We got a cute one of the kids together. I always say "I am not going to buy so many this time" but I always end up buying them all!
How can you resist?????

Camden in crawling now!!!! He just took off 2 days ago!

Always studying things

Big Beautiful Blue eyes

We went walking around the mall today and there was NO line for Santa!!!! We decided today was perfect to visit Santa. I knew Camden probably wouldn't like Santa. He doesn't like strangers. I thought this picture was priceless!!!!

Happy Holidays

Not feeling too good :(

Camden had a rough day today. He is teething really bad. His top gums are so swollen and the teeth are ready to pop through. he ran a fever today. His first ever!!!! It started out at 99.9 and got up to 101.2. He was not feeling well at well. There were times today he was happy to play and then he would just cry out. I felt so bad for him. We did a lot of cuddling and laying in bed together. Aaron is off tomorrow from work. He is taking Molly to get a bath and nails clipped for Thanksgiving. He is going to take Camden to Oma's and call and see how he is doing. He will probably get him early unless he is doing okay.

I kept making this face today. Mommy thinks he was making my gums feels good.

Pray for his top teeth to come in quickly and painless as can be.

Cutie Patootie

Camden has been the cutest lately. He has really started moving. He also likes to get up on his knees and try to pull up. He has only pulled up on someone or a toy, but we might just skip crawling all together.

That was hard work!

He is such a happy baby. The other morning on the way to Oma's, he was in the back just laughing. I wished I could've seen his face. When I drop him off he always smiles and looks for her. I am so happy we have her! She loves him and he loves her!!!!!

Looking cute in my Levi's

The new face he has been making when he is done with dinner. He also shakes his no at us! It is the cutest thing ever!

We went to Kaitlyn's choir concert this past weekend. We bought this really cool broom, it was at Holiday Magic, and we would wave the broom to her while she was singing. She was getting embarrassed.

We can't wait for Thanksgiving. We are hosting it this year. Aaron's family will be coming over. We have Rock Band and Guitar Hero ready to battle!!!!! This has been the longest week, but I know it's because next week I will get to be home with the kids for 5 whole days!!!!!

Big Boy

Camden went to the doctor Friday. He weighs 19 lbs 6 oz. He gained exactly 5 lbs in 3 months. WOW!!!!! He is 27 1/2 inches long. He is the 30% for weight and 25% for height. She said he looks perfect.

We need to really baby proof the house now because he is starting to really move around. He crawls backwards and then gets into a sitting position. If he just realized he could go, then he would be off. Last night we got some corner covers for our tables and a fireplace edge cover. Today Aaron is going to put the cabinet locks on our cabinets, don't want him getting into something he shouldn't. Dr. Fikkert told us to take an empty toilet paper roll and have Kaitlyn see if any of her toys will fit in, if they do then she needs to put them up high! I thought that was a good idea.
I'm coming to get you.....

Camden has begun to growl. I think he likes the noise he makes. Enjoy the video of him
expressing himself.

Aaron and Camden came up to my school today and brought lunch. They also stayed for a little bit to meet the kids. My kids were so cute. We are learning a bit about spiders and I told them how much Camden likes "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" so they sang to him. He just looked at them and smiled. He liked the kids.

Good Afternoon boys and girls

I love you Mommy

Happy 9 Month Birthday!

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

Where does time go?

I can't believe Camden will 9 months old tomorrow, Wednesday. Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday he was just a prayer. We waited so long for him, that we have cherished every day with him. He is such a sweet baby. He doesn't cry unless he is hungry or tired. He laughs and smiles ALL day!!!! Last night he discovered himself in the mirror. It was so cute! He would try to kiss himself. He is my cuddle bug. When I get home he gives me the sweetest hug! I am so thankful for children who like to hug!!!! Camden has really started moving around. He is actually not crawling yet, but can get around. He scoots backwards on the floor, we have Wood, so you can imagine how he slides across the floor. I know he will soon be taking off forwards. I am anxious to see how much he weighs. He has become Mommy's little chunk! We go to the doctor Friday. I will post 9 month pictures tomorrow, but couldn't resist his smile!!!! Had to share...

We had a great time Trick or Treating. We got dressed up and took lots of pictures. Uncle Justin and Aunt Michelle, Grammy, and Nanny came over to see us looking so cute!!!! We went with Kaitlyn's friend Sarah and her sister Kendall. Camden got tired and hot! I can't believe how hot it was!!!!! We took his lion outfit off for part of the way. He wanted to be held most of the time. Kaitlyn had a great time running from house to house. Enjoy the pictures....there are lots!
