7 Months

Cameron was 7 months old on November 2nd. I can't believe how fast he has been growing lately and how quickly he is starting to get around. He hasn't gotten the hang of crawling quite yet, but army crawls everywhere. He is so fast now! We don't have another check -up til 8 months; so next month we'll post his weight and height.

Cameron has had a cough for awhile so we did not go trick or treating this year :( He did help me pass out candy in his costume and then we got some pics with his cousin Ashley & Matthew, so at least he did get some time in his costume. I'm getting so excited about Christmas; especially with all the stores already decorated. I know he will love all the lights!

That's all for now. Hope everyone is staying healthy. It's been 70 here in Chicago the last 2 days!

Trick or Treat!

Check out our Itsy Bitsy Spider! Cameron didn't like being in the costume at first, but now he is such a little ham! We had a mini dress rehearsal this week so we can get ready for next Saturday. Right now the plan is to hand out candy at our house for awhile and then go stop by our neighbors on the street. It's so much fun to get really excited again about all the holidays now that we have Cameron.

Cameron is still scooting everywhere. I'm hoping he will get the hang of crawling soon. I'm sure he is tired of having me try to show him how to do it - ha,ha! He is such a good eater too! So far the only thing he hasn't really liked are peas.

I hope everyone has a great Halloween Week!

So adorable!!!

Look how big I'm getting

I love food!

Fall is Here!

We have been busy bees this past week. Unfortunately we did not go to the pumpkin patch this past Sunday since it was so cold and I didn't want Cameron to catch a cold. If it ever warms up then we'll try to go again before Halloween gets here. I seriously feel like it's cold 9 months out of the year here in Chicago :( I want it to get warmer and sunny so I can take Cameron out for walks again!

Cameron and I went to see my good friend Michelle on Saturday. We did some shopping and scrapbooking. It was so much fun to hang out!!! I'm getting addicted to scrapbooking now :) Sunday Paul, Cameron, and I went over to his parents house to celebrate his birthday w/ his family. We had a great time! Cameron loves seeing his cousins here!

Stay warm and have a safe week!!!

Go Hawkeyes!
(He was cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes since Paul's family was at the game on Saturday and they won!)

Look at my tongue

This is his new favorite toy right now

Mommy's Little Stinker

We went for Cameron's 6 month check-up yesterday and he gained much more weight than last time so that was good. He is now 16 lbs 23 oz and 26 inches. He is in the 50th percentile for weight and height which seems to be about the same for him each time so far. I was hoping he would get Paul's tall genes, but looks like he might be more like my family ;)

We are so blessed to have such a healthy happy baby boy. We are looking forward to all the holidays this year with the new addition to our family! Paul's birthday is tomorrow....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!

Some fun pics of Cameron:

I'm going to eat my bear! (Everything goes straight to his mouth now-ha,ha)

6 Months

Cameron turned 6 months old on Friday!!! I cannot believe it's been 6 months! The time is flying by so fast. He is doing better and better at sitting up (only for a few seconds, but balancing himself better each day). We also think it isn't too much longer before he will be crawling. Right now Cameron inch worms around everywhere. He's even starting to get on all fours and rock back and forth. We'll definitely need to baby proof everything soon! Cameron's 6 month check up is this coming Tuesday. We'll post his weight and height as soon as we know. Paul's birthday is this Thursday and Cameron and I are very excited to celebrate!

We're going this Sunday to the pumpkin patch with our little peanut :) Cameron's Halloween costume is all set to go and we can't wait for everyone to check out his spider costume! It is so adorable!
It's getting darker and darker earlier here in Chicago and unfortunately colder and colder too! It's going to be sad not to take all our walks to the park. Hope everyone has a great week!

5 Months

Cameron turned 5 months September 2nd. I can't believe how big our little peanut is getting each day! He was on such a great roll sleeping (8pm to 7am), but that has changed :( He is off his schedule right now and seems to be waking up around 1:30am each night; not crying, just cooing. It's adorable, but Paul and I need our sleep! We're working hard to get him back into his old routine, but I'm starting to realize it's not that easy - ha,ha.

I took Cameron to the park today and he touched the grass for the first time. He wasn't sure what to do with it at first and then he just lunged right into it to eat it! I luckily got all the little pieces he grabbed up. Anything he gets his hands on goes straight to his mouth. He is definitely teething, but I don't see any signs of any teeth yet.

Here are some fun pics! Have a great weekend!!!

Sleeping Better

Hello Everyone! This week has been pretty tough on me. We have been letting Cameron "cry it out" at night and only going in to pat his back or butt after he fusses for awhile. I must say that although it has been difficult, it is working and he is sleeping better and better. I can't say that we've mastered it and that he is sleeping through the night completely quite yet, but we're getting there.

Cameron has been rolling over for awhile now, but he is starting to roll from his back to his tummy to his back! So far he has only mastered this on the right side (maybe this means he will be right handed?). Anywho, it is really fun and amazing watching him do it and then looking for praise from either me or Paul. There is nothing better than seeing your child smile or laugh :)

Have a great week!!!

Whoa, more ended up on Cameron than in his mouth - ha,ha!

Go Colts!!!
