Camden was given this stuffed Sleepy dwarf from a friend. One day I got Camden up from his nap and he was still a little sleepy. I brought him downstairs and went to make his milk. I turned around and Camden had crawled over to Sleepy and laid his head down on him for a rest. It was soo cute I went to get my camera to take a picture. When I came back he of course lifted his head to see what I was up to. I couldn't get him to put his head back down but it was still a cute picture so I had to take one.

These are pictures from our play group this past week. There was a small group of us there. It has been hit or miss for us with the play group this year. We seem to have a lot going on during the week between play group, Bible study and MOPS (and that's when we are healthy). Camden and I took the opportunity to go to Kristin's house for some mommy and play time. The pictures are mostly of Camden and his friend Hannah. She is just a few months older than him but they were really cute trying to play together (they really just took turns taking toys from each other).

I was prepared for the stage when everything goes in Camden's mouth. We are well into this stage at our house. I was not prepared however, for Camden to put random things that are attached to our house in his mouth. I understand most kids fascination with door stops. I have only ever known of them exploring them with their hands. Leave it to my Camden to feel the need to taste them. I have not caught him putting them in his mouth since. I guess they didn't really taste that great. I will never know.
I can only wonder what will be in his mouth next.
We have had so much snow this year. It has been really beautiful but also really challenging. One snow storm caused us to total our car. We were fortunate to not have any injuries (except the car). God provided us with another car quickly. I have really enjoyed the snow partly becasue I don't have to venture out of the house if I don't need to. Steven has been less excited about all of the travelilng in the snow, espically with his long commute. God has protected him and for that we are grateful. Camden doesn't care either way. We have taken him outside for a few quick pictures but he stays as still and as silent as possible. When we bring him in and thaw him out he is much louder and on the move. We try not to freeze him too often for the sake of a picture.
Here are a few pictures I took from our house.
Camden got this car for Christmas from his Granna and Pop. We thought he would be a little young for it but it would be something he would grow into. That is simply not the case. It has all the bells and whistles so It will grow with him over time. It starts off with a rocker so he can't go anywhere but he can still move in it. That lasted about an hour. We took the rocker feature off and we were pushing him around the house (Steven always pushing a little faster than me). He loves to move in it and we try to put him in it everyday. Although, Camden will never wants to get out of his car so we have to set limits. Now Steven will push him around for a while when he gets home from work (Camden and I both look forward to this everyday). I make dinner and Steven and Camden release some energy. Now Camden can make it go on his own in a straight line. He will usually bump into the couch or the wall and turn around and look at Steven. Camden doesn't have any words but we know exactly what he is telling us.

Ok, it is February and Camden is almost one. I still haven't updated my blog about Christmas. I am going to try to have it all updated soon. I am also working on making my blog as spiffy as my sister-in-law Diana's. She made hers really cool and I am trying to be as cool as her.
Christmas was not at all how I envisioned it. I have been putting off blogging it. For those of you who don't know I was really sick over Christmas and in the hospital. It was hard to come up with a diagnosis but the doctors finally landed on severe food poisoning (I don't think I will ever have sushi again). After three days in the hospital I was released in the evening of Christmas day. I was still very weak for a week and a half after that. My mom and my sister helped out for a few days and Steven's mom flew out to help us for a little over a week. We were grateful for all of the help. I had to stop breastfeeding and switch Camden to a sippy cup with formula. He was a champ and did well throughout the entire ordeal. He has been an easy going happy baby (just like his mommy was as a baby).
We celebrated Christmas late. We are grateful that Camden didn't know the difference. We are also thankful that I do not have a chronic illness. God took care of us and he continues to watch over us.
We look forward to a wonderful 2008!
