A trip to the Apple Orchard

This morning we took a trip to a local orchard that I have heard about but we have never visited.  Last year they were out of apples when I contacted them and this year we went the last day that they will be open.  It was fun and Drew loved picking the apples!  Camden even found him one that he wanted and we can't wait to make some goodies with these apples.  It's Camden's favorite thing to eat right now so he might be getting most of them!

They have chickens and a little butterfly garden too.
They also have a peach picking season in the summer so, we might just have to try that out next year and come earlier for more yummy apples!

7 Months

Dear Camden,
Please stop growing.  Your mommy and daddy love you just the way you are and although we know we will love you no matter what, we are really enjoying you right now and want you to SLOW DOWN. 
                                                                                                           Your mommy and daddy
My oh my have we had a busy, busy month.  Camden sure has enjoyed every bit of it and has been his happy self along the way.

What's new:  He's thinking about crawling and trying oh so hard.  He straightens his legs and ends in an upside down "v".  He has put his weight on a couch cushion and pushed up.  He now sits in the shopping cart at stores and high chair at restaurants.  He rides in the stroller like a big boy and no more sitting in the car seat.   He started preschool with Drew and loves it.  We took a short day trip to visit and meet his Pop and Mimi.  He was dedicated at church.  He has started just last weekend throwing a little fit if you take away something from him.  Usually it's if he has gotten a hold of my phone and I take it away.  Little stinker.  He will break his back to find my phone.  He likes when it's lit up.  He also got to go to the park and actually play himself instead of just watching brother have fun!

Interests:  My phone, holding the spoon by himself when he's eating, anything that crinkles or makes noises, LOVES, LOVES, LOVES his brother, and likes to grab our toes when we are on the floor playing with him.

Food:  He drinks around 7.5 oz of milk each feeding.  For food he has tried bananas, pears, apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, and peaches.  Next up is green beans.  He has a few random red spots on his face after having peaches for two days so we have stopped that for now and will revisit later.  His favorite so far is apples and pears are a close second!

Big brother wanted to help
Sleep:  He's getting there, we can finally say.  He usually eats dinner around 6 and then goes down around 7:30.  He doesn't wake up again until 5 or 6am.  YAY!  He had a rough night the other night and I think it was either his teeth (still doesn't have any of those) or a growth spurt. 
Sizes:  He is still wearing 6-9 month clothes and a size 3 diaper.

What I Love:  I love how he just seems to be the happiest baby I know.  Everything/Anything makes him happy.  He only gets a little fussy when he's tired or hungry...or you take my phone away :) I still love the way he adores his big brother and how his big brother adores him.  Drew asks daily if he can play with him and loves taking baths with him.  I can't wait until they can really play together and I pray there are more good days then not with these two.

Camden's Baby Dedication

Last Sunday we had Camden's baby dedication at church.  We had some of our family came in to celebrate this day and we went to lunch with them and friends afterwards.  Camden did great, as always, and listened to what Pastor Doug had to say.  Drew was unsure about going to BIG church and kept asking to go to LITTLE church.  Not sure where that came from but he didn't want to miss out on LITTLE church.  He loves to go to church and I pray Camden will too.  We love our church, church family, and staff.  Thank you to everyone who has, who does, and who will help us raise our little ones in church.

First Day of Preschool x2

That's right, we sent both of our sweet boys to preschool today.  BOTH!  Camden wasn't sure what was about to happen (and you can tell this by the picture) but Drew on the other hand was super excited to see his friends that he has been talking about since we have mentioned getting ready to go back to school.  Since they have an awesome daddy, he went into work late, and took them to school.  Of course, he had to get the must have preschool pics at the house.  He then sent them to me at work and MADE.MY.DAY!

After arriving, I got a text that said drop off went perfect and that Camden was the only one in his class until another little girl comes in October.  YAY!  I loved hearing that!  Drew of course loved seeing his friends back at school.
Their amazing sitter sent me these pictures letting me know both boys were doing good and having a great day!




When I picked these cuties up, they had these same cute smiles on their faces.  Love how the love school and their teachers.

BIG 8-0


Last weekend (I'm a little behind on posting) we celebrated my grandmother's 80th birthday!  She thought she was just going to lunch with one of my aunts for her birthday and showed up and her entire family was there to celebrate.  Drew was excited to see his cousin and nanny.  We had a great time and Camden almost lasted the whole time!
