BIG Cheese

I can't even believe how fast time has flown right past me. The other day I was feeding Camden a bottle(which is pretty rare because it is so convenient for him to feed himself) and I couldn't believe how big he had gotten in the blink of an eye. Ever since day one I have laid him in my lap with his head near my knees and his legs toward my stomach while I fed him. That was the only way I could do it. I tried the whole cradling him and resting his head on my arm while I fed him with the other just didn't work for me. So anyway..back to the story...when I laid him in my lap his head was practically hanging off and his feet were pretty much kicking me in the face. That is when I determined he is growing way too fast. I am scared! He is gonna be heading off to college before I know it(I'm a drama queen, I know).

The only thing that seems to make the fact that he is growing up any easier, is all the new things he does everyday. His latest and greatest act is when he laughs! He loves to hear himself laugh. So when there is nothing for him to laugh at, he forces a laugh which sounds like a grumble, or an old man clearing his throat. He not only makes this funny noise but he shakes his body when he does it. I really need to get this filmed because it is hilarious.

Sometimes when he smiles I think he resembles Alvin the chipmunk. It has to be those two big teeth only Alvin's are on the top.

Last night during his bath, the rubber duck was floating in the water and it's face turned towards Camden and he started laughing hysterically. At first I wasn't sure what he was laughing at until I noticed him staring and the duck when it happened again. I almost wet my pants it was so funny.

Man I love this kid. I can't get enough of that big ol' cheese! If this is what growing up is about, I'll take it(until he back talks me and smiles after).

So adorable! And I'm betting you still enjoy the smiles when they come after the back-talk. ;)

The best is when they learn that they can present other choices to you too:
It's time for bed
Um, maybe we can watch a movie first...
Um, no it is time for bed.
But mom, maybe we can watch it for one minute?
