Halloween 2014

Camden's first Halloween was eventful and although he didn't know what was going on, he sure was cute and so was his big brother!

I took of the day and dropped the boys off at school and stayed for the parade.  Drew was doing his shy face, which we saw all night.  This Halloween was a little overwhelming for him and all the costumes.

After dinner we headed up to church to do trunk or treat.  Drew enjoyed the games and getting candy but saying "trick or treat" was a little challenging because he was being so shy.

Daddy also got asked to make announcements in the gym!  Camden loved being a long for the ride.

After leaving the church we went to a few houses in Mrs. Beverly's (our wonderful sitter) neighborhood.  Drew wasn't to sure about it until he got a glow stick for one house and then he was all about it!  He loves glow sticks these days!
We got invited in to Mrs. Beverly's house and got some more goodies and a cute picture.  They love Mrs. Beverly and so do we!

Happy Halloween from the Cate family!

8 months old

Camden is eight months old, constantly growing, and changing daily.  He is still the happiest and easy going baby around.  We just love how he can bring a smile to our faces...even in the middle of the night.

What's new:  CRAWLING!  He is crawling and crawling everywhere, which has caused a few tears too when running into the table or falling off the step from the game room to the living room (just once).  He blows raspberry's and sometimes on our legs or arms.  It's so cute and he's so happy when he's doing it.  He has started really not liking getting into his car seat to go somewhere.  He has two teeth!  He got one a week after he turned 7 months and then just got another one this week!

Interests:  Loves playing with Sutton, shaking our car keys, still loves to hold a cell phone, attempts to watch Frozen when big brother has it on TV, and loves looking out the window and watching big brother and Sutton play.

Food:  He is still drinking 7 oz of milk and eating lunch and dinner daily.  He has tried many foods and still loves apples.  I don't think he's a huge fan of kiwi or broccoli.

Sleep:  Argh, that's another story.  He is doing better but has been up the past two nights.  I'm thinking it's teething because he got a new tooth!

Sizes:  Still a size 3 diaper and wearing 6-9 months clothes.

What I love:  I love how he sees me after school and lights up with excitement.  I love his contagious smile and constant happiness.  I love how easy going he is and loved by so many people.  When I pick him up from school or church, I always hear how great of a little boy he is/was.  I love how he interacts with our dog, Sutton.  I love how he adores his brother and how they can just sit and play together.  I love how God chose us to raise these little boys and although every day isn't perfect, it's all good in the end!

A visit to the patch

This past weekend we went to a pumpkin patch.  We took Camden to the same one that we took Drew to when he was little.  Drew loved seeing all the pumpkins, especially the big ones, and he also loved seeing all his favorite characters to take pictures with.  Camden enjoyed every minute of it and laughed and giggled the entire time.

We got a few of the same pictures of Camden that we took with Drew.  Drew was only three months and Camden is seven months. 


Happy Fall Y'all!

A weekend of fun!

Daddy was out of town and I took the boys to a open house at the fire station.  Drew saw a friend from school but was to shy to say HI!  He was still scared to get close to the fire trucks but was so excited to see all the trucks.  We enjoyed some hotdogs, popcorn, and Drew got to get cotton candy for the first time!  Camden loved being along for the ride and loved every minute of it.

After naps were over, we headed over to SeaLife Aquarium.  Drew has been asking to go to the aquarium for awhile and every time we get ready to go somewhere he tells us that we are going to the aquarium.  Not sure where that came from but he sure wanted to go.  I think he needs a season pass (great Christmas present idea) :)
I think this was Camden's third time to go in just seven months!

The Boy's Halloween Party

Since Drew's first Halloween we have had a little Halloween party.  This year was tiny and the invitation was by text to just a couple of friends, last minute.  Working full time, I just didn't have the energy to go all out.  So, we all dressed up...enjoyed some goodies, and had a great time!

A glimpse back at previous party's.  Last year's didn't make the blog :(  click here
