Can I tell you a story about a handsome little devil?
His name is Camden
and he melts my heart!

The End.

Life on the Farm

For the past few weeks Camden has been plagued with constant ear infections. In order to keep all of us somewhat sane, we have tried to get out of the house and do "fun" things. So last week we went to a farm/pumpkin patch to try and occupy a little bit of time for all of us. There were plenty of fun things for Camden to do but instead he spent most of the time wanting to be held.

And seeing how he has a strong Dad that is willing to do that, even out in the heat, it worked to his advantage.

The animals caught his attention for a little while but were just a bit too stinky for the "city girl" in me.

So along those same lines of trying to occupy his time I decided to stick with non stinky farm type activities for my benefit.
And seeing how I had a bunch of extremely ripe bananas about to be tossed. We decided to bake some banana bread. Camden sampled the bananas while I let him smash them all over himself as well as everything around him. Yes it was a lot more messy with his help but hey, I accomplished what I needed to get done as well has entertained the cranky(rightfully so) one.

Lollipop Kid

I bought this huge and super fun lollipop with the intentions of giving it to Camden on his first birthday. But with all the excitement from that day it managed to slip my mind. So here we are 16 months later when I finally busted it out for him.

I had visions of an incredible photo shoot while he was distracted with this colorful sugar on a stick. Much to my dismay, he did not cooperate with my oh so brilliant plan. But I did manage to get a few cute shots in.
Shortly after this picture was taken, he dropped the 10lb candy on the ground. Enjoyed the noise it made, he continued to do so until it shattered into several pieces.
We took what remained on the stick and decided to enjoy the rest in his highchair. I let him go at it for almost 40minutes until I rushed him off to the tub to scrub away the sticky mess.
He was kicking and screaming the entire way to the bath tub; which in my mind meant he thought I was the coolest mom ever for giving him that lollipop.

Every time I told Camden he needed to watch General Conference this is what he did!
I'm scared for the future!

I feel totally violated. I noticed a "pay pal" debit was made from our bank account this morning that I thought to be a little weird. So I asked Dan about it and sure enough he promised me it wasn't him. So after some good investigation on Dan's part we were able to get in touch with some extremely helpful people. And much to our surprise it was indeed FRAUD. The lady we spoke to said she has seen this before and it usually doesn't stop with just one transaction. So I guess you could say we are lucky to have caught it early.

Some jerk got a hold of my debit card number and purchased something nice for themselves. Hopefully it is all being taken care of and nothing comes out of my pocket, but I can't even explain the creepy feeling this brings with it. I feel sick to my stomach. I have always been one of those people who was irritated by things like this but never thought it could happen to me. Well, newsflash, it can and it did. Some people disgust me!

Check Up Time

Today we took Camden for his 15 month check up. We went a little late this time because we switched doctors(who we absolutely love by the way), but still got a clean bill of health. The doctor said, "he is tall and skinny just like his parents". I was grateful the doctor added me in that tall and skinniness with Dan, even if it isn't true bonus points to him for saying it. He weighed 23.8lbs(25%) and is 32(75%) inches tall. And just as I suspected he has a ginormous head which also measures in the 75th percentile.
And because Dan and I are suckers for this kid we took him to Jamba Juice after he did so well getting shots. What more can a boy want then hangin' out on the couch with a Jamba and his remote? Doesn't he look so grown up in this picture, I can hardly stand it?!
We love his little personality more everyday! As of lately he is obsessed with our dog. He follows her everywhere holding firmly to her tail. Luckily Chewie is really good to him and puts up with his pestering. He loves to blow kisses, we are working on teaching him how to hug. He follows commands really well and I love that he is learning the concept of cleaning up after himself. He still barks like a dog and will moo like a cow, but that is as far as we've got in the animal department.

Yesterday when I dropped him off at the babysitters house he was waving goodbye to me even before I left. He is a social butterfly but has his limits, he understands that not every face is a familiar one. He loves to be outside and explore. He is fascinated with furniture that is his size, I really need to get him a pottery barn chair. He climbs on everything, and loves to make a mess.

He will point to his hair, ears, nose(beep beep), eyes, teeth, toes(piggies), and belly button when he is in a performing mood. Anything he can get a hold of is a golf club. He loves to swing and hit the ball, or anything for that matter. He can throw like a champ. I've really got to work on his soccer skills, I can't let Dan get away with all the glory!

All in all he is a piece of work that we love to death. I still can't believe I have a 15 month old, how did this happen?
