A Head

A picture is truly worth a thousand words. I have been trying to think of a way to blog about this picture, and I just can't seem to get the right words out. So I will say very little. We were at Old Navy for a recent shopping trip. Camden saw these headless manikins, and instead of being scared (what two year old wouldn't). He solved the the problem by lending his head to the poor headless manikin. He even did it without us seeing. We just happened to stop talking to look for him and could see him resting his head on this manikin.

We were happy we brought our camera. It was just too cute to pass up.

Granna & Pop visit

In March Camden's very brave Granna & Pop visited us from Texas. They truly are very brave because it snowed the first four days of their seven day visit. I think we all agreed that we should visit them in the Winter and they will come and see us in the Summer. Despite all of the snow it was a fun visit with them. Steven was able to take the week off of work and we really packed our week full of fun activities. They also got to celebrate Camden's belated birthday with him.

The highlight of the trip had to be Steven (and Camden wearing his t-shirt) getting to tell his parents that we are expecting our second baby at the end of the summer. Since they live so far away we usually get to tell them all the good news over the phone. It was so hard to keep this a secret for so long (I was nearly 15 weeks pregnant) but it was totally worth telling them the news in person. It was very special for us.

Pop got to take Camden on a Carousel ride. I can't tell who had more fun.

Granna & Pop got to give Camden his presents while they were out here and watch him open them.

They even found him a blue stroller. He loves to push strollers around and we found one that our boy could play with. He was so excited!

Camden's Birthday Kitchen

For Camden's birthday we got him a Kitchen. I don't think Camden really knows what we are calling it. He calls it his "chicken". Either way he has a lot of fun cooking and playing.

Happy Birthday Camden!

In February we celebrated my baby's 2nd birthday. I don't know where the time went. I now have a two year old that thinks he knows everything. I guess it's time to have another. That was our big announcement at the party. Camden got to wear his "Big Brother" T-shirt announcing that we are having another baby in September. It was a day to celebrate.

Our birthday tradition, dinner at Red Robin. He ate more of his Sunday this year then he did last year.

Birthday Costco cupcakes. They were delicious.

Digging in!

Finger lickin' good!

It was a big day.

Trip to Texas

In February I had a chance to fly to Texas and visit my in laws. We were happy to have an excuse to get away from the cold and rainy weather of the Northwest. Camden and Brynna were so happy to be together. They had such a good time playing together. We also had fun getting to know Camden's other cousin Lane. We had lots of sunshine, good food, good chats and the best iced-tea. I hope I could make it an annual visit. It was so good for the cousins.

Camden's favorite thing-wrestling. Brynna was a good sport.
