Cam Turns ONE!!

Our sweetest little guy turns ONE! I can't believe how fast the year has gone. The first 6 months are a blur given the colic and variety of respiratory issues...and the sleep challenges that went with that but we survived! Today Cam couldn't be any happier and brings so much joy to our lives. He loves books more than any other toy, he'll sit quietly and flip through many pages, he also loves to be read to. He also loves anything that his big brother has, would rather try and steal something Brody has rather than find a new toy for himself. He has 4 teeth, two on top and two on the bottom with 4 coming in at the same time. Cam is also a big eater, he doesn't miss a meal and you'll know when he's hungry!! He definitely eats more than Brody does! He babbles a lot, says hi and loves to wave hello/good bye, give big hugs and slobbery kisses! On his 1st birthday i took him to the doctor, he weighed 25lbs, which is 90th percentile and is 30" inches long which is the 75th percentile. One healthy little guy! Happy Birthday Cam...we love you!

Fall Festivals

A day full of festivals! In the morning Gina and I took the boys to Plymouth for the fall parade, Brody loved getting the candy although he hasn't realized he's got to be more aggressive with the big kids around! Cam sat in the stroller the whole time and enjoyed the show!

In the evening we joined Lynn and Matthew (Brody's friend from daycare) at the Medina festival. Brody got his face painted, played on the play ground and even got a ride in an old fire truck! Because the evening got so chilly we left daddy and Cam at home.

Little Fishy

We started Cam in swim classes this fall, so now Daddy gets to be in the pool for an entire hour, 30 mins with both boys! Cam, like Brody loves the water!

Maryland Trip

In September we made the trip to Maryland to see Jason's family. It was fun to introduce Cam to the rest of the family as many had not met him yet. Brody had fun playing with his cousins and of course Uncle Jack. We were also able to see Jason's family friends Connie and Bob as well as Uncle Don, Aunt Martha and his college roommate Dr Mike and his family. It was an event filled weekend for sure. The boys were awesome on the plane, even on the return where we sat on the run way for 3 hours, neither of them complained. On the return we made it as far as St Louis then our flight was delayed again, so it worked out well that we could spontaneously see my brother and family. Brody LOVED that surprise and the end of a long day!

New Swing Set

We finally got a Rainbow Swing Set for the back yard and both boys are LOVING it! Everyday Brody wants to head outside to play, I dread this winter when it's 0 and he requests a trip to the swing set! We ended up getting the larger version so that it would hold adults, both Jason and i have enjoyed our fair share of swinging, sliding and rock climbing! Brody loves that we can play on it too!
