Camden has become quite the little photographer these days. He has really been into taking pictures of his toys. I am not against anything giving me a five minute break to try to get something done. I give him the camera and he has at it. Here are a few of his best shots (out of 100). I really like the first one. It looks like he set up his toys for the picture and they are smiling for the camera. It's just too cute!

October was a better month. We really started getting use to the idea of having two kids. Nolan started sleeping longer stretches, and I didn't feel so tired. All of our meals ended at the end of September (we were so blessed with so many good meals) so I had to find a routine with two kids that included cooking dinner. Steven took a trip to Houston in October, just for the weekend. He got to witness a good friend of his get married and I was glad he got to go. I was also very glad that my mom (Nana) and her soon to be husband (Grandpa Steve) came to stay with me and help. I was not ready to be alone with my two babies. I was so grateful they came because I ended up getting mastitis and couldn't get out of bed. They really took care of things for me, and Nolan was still sleeping most of the time so that really helped. The month got off to a rocky start but ended much better.
Here is Nana and Grandpa Steve with Camden. They took him to a wedding down at Point Defiance Park. They were gone for the day, so I got to spend that time catching up on my sleep.
They all look so good!
We had to get a picture of Grandpa Bob with all of his great grand kids.
Can you find the sleeping baby among the mess?
We enjoyed many Halloween festivities this year. The first was to go to my mom's work and let the kids trick or treat. This was Camden's very first year that he got to pick his own costume. He chose to be a doctor, so before we went trick or treating he had to give his Nana a physical.

After weeks of having trouble with blogger, and then realizing the problem was with me, I am finally able to update my blog. Now that it's November I plan to give you a general overview of our life of a family of four so far. So we will begin with the month of September.
September was pretty much a blurr. We were in full survival mode. We were fortunate to have help for three weeks after Nolan was born. We have a great family and everyone really pulled together for us. Our birth and recovery was not what we had planned on but we got through it. With all of the help gone we were happy to see what life was like as a family of four.
One of the big events of the month was celebrating Steven's 3- birthday. He happened to be traveling for work on his actual birthday, but we made sure we celebrated him when he was home.
Here he is watching football with two of his three favorite people.
Snuggling with mommy is always good.
All in all it was a good month but we are glad it's over.
