It has been quite a while since I have last blogged, but life has gotten the best of me and I have a busy TODDLER to attend to during my days. There is a lot to catch up on since last June.
We now have an 18 month old little fella who is a ball of energy and so smart! It amazes me of what all he is learning right now. He tries to repeat back pretty much any word or phrase we ask him to. Most of the time though he still has his own little language going on. On of his favorite phrases to say is, “Let’s go!!” He is putting together three word phrases more and more and I know he will be speaking in full sentences before I know it! He loves to run and play outside, swing on the swings at the park, watch Toy Story (all 3 of them) and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, throw balls, look at any kind of pictures, watch videos of himself, throw things away for us in the trash can, and ride on things.
Cam has done so much growing since he turned one and I can’t believe his 2nd birthday is already closer than his 1st birthday!
Speaking of his 1st birthday, we found out we were expecting baby #2 the day before his birthday party! We are SO excited to welcome this new baby into our little family in March! Children are a BLESSING from the Lord and deserve to be celebrated like the blessing that they are!
We told all of our family and friends at Cam’s birthday party and let him be the one to share the news with everyone by him wearing a Big Brother shirt under his Woody western shirt.
The first trimester was rougher than it was with Cam as far as sickness goes. Cam made me super sick but EmmaLee-Tyler made me even more sick! Since I entered the second trimester in September of last year things have gotten much better. Tim was the real MVP during our first trimester as far as cleaning the house and helping even more with Cam, especially at night when I was utterly exhausted!
In October we found out that EmmaLee-Tyler was EmmaLee-Tyler! We both thought for sure we were having another boy because of my pregnancies being so similar to each other, but we were gloriously surprised to find out that there was a sweet little girl inside of me!
We have made sure to include Cam into everything during this pregnancy and want him to be as involved as he can be. He loves to kiss and pat my belly and talk to the baby. He likes to go into her room and go through Em’s things. He has been dying to open up her giraffe Wubanub (paci). Also, recently Cam thinks its so funny to walk around sticking his tummy out as far as he can as a way to be like me. 🙂
We are now anxiously awaiting her arrival next month and she truly is an added blessing to our family! We cannot wait to get to know her and see her personality shine. Her room is practically finished and I have her clothes washed and ready to go. Now, we just need a little girl to add to the fun in our house!
Here a few pictures to recap the past few months:
