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.
