My task this summer is to get Camden off the paci.
We don't want him to be one of those kids talking with it in their mouths. So since I am off I made it my task! Summer is half over , so I thought I needed to get a move on it. We cut a slit in one paci and he kept looking at it but still put in his mouth. Aaron cut the tip off the other one and he would just look at it and chew on it. The first night he cried for about 12 minutes so I went in and gave him extra cuddles by rocking him to sleep. Naptime today the same....crying and then rocking. Tonight I thought for sure he would need to cuddle. He amazed me! We went in his room and turned on his baseball nightlight and said our goodnights and then got in bed just like we always do. He laid down and went right to sleep. I haven't heard him at all. I can't believe it!!!!! Hopefully this will keep up and we will be rid of the paci!!!! YEAH for Camden.
Today we celebrated our 5th anniversary! Aaron brought me home some flowers. I made him a homemade card and got him a piece of wood! I wrote Amy loves Aaron on it! 5 years is wood!!!!!! We also bought a new wood table for our dining room last week!!!! We went to eat at Outback, where it all started! We had a great time. Thanks Nanny for keeping the kiddos!!!!
5 years! Doesn't seem like it. We have gone down such a wonderful journey together. Aaron is the BEST husband and Daddy I could ask for. He always tries to make me happy no matter what! I can't wait to see what the next 5 years has in store for us. I LOVE YOU!!!!!
We went on a little staycation to Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine. It was so much fun! The indoor water park was a blast. Kaitlyn and Aaron rode all the big rides and Camden and Mommy took on the kiddie park! It was nice to get away and feel like we were on vacation even though we were down the street..... Tons of pictures to follow....
Taking it all in
Having fun in the water, he would laugh, clap, and scream!
Dad, I'm ready!
Kaitlyn's favorite part of the room! Her perch!
chilling with sister after my nap
Floating down the river
He would get so close and then step back
Aaron's favorite! The acorn!!!!
Camden loved watching the water fall down from the big bucket. Wherever we were, if he heard the bell dinging he knew where to look.
We had a great 4th. We went out to Nanny and Papa's land and played in the water, cooked out, and watched fireworks. Papa put on a really good show! 2 hours long!!!! The kids played with sparklers....that was fun for them. And yes they were VERY careful. Camden got scared of the fireworks and would just bury his head in my shoulder. During the show we went in the trailer and got a quick shower and then he stayed inside with Nanny and watched from the window. It was a great day! We had fun playing with family!!!!!
Playing with cousin Dylan. Mommy and Daddy have to buy one for me now!!!! Having so much fun!
I am Mom to Kaitlyn, Camden and Landry. I love being a Mom. It is the most important job in the world, and I get to be a Mommy to 3 very special kiddos. I love teaching 1st grade and spending time with my family. Our favorite places to go are the Ranger games, movies, and Target.
