Health: I don’t want to jinx it, but Camden has been extremely lucky with his health. Nothing more than a mini cold when he was a newborn.
Sleep: Cam is still taking 2 naps a day. His first nap is almost always a guarantee, while his second nap sometimes gets skipped (his decision, not ours). Occasionally he will take micro naps in his stroller or the car, which I don’t love, but sleep is sleep. Sometimes when he wakes up from a nap he is anxious and upset. He will scream and cry and can take up to 20 minutes to calm him down. I asked his doctor about it and she thought it might be because of bad dreams. I hate seeing him so upset so I started brining him a cracker and a sippy cup of water after his naps. For some reason this cured his nap terrors!
He is still sleeping through the night but for about a week he was waking up at 5:30am for cuddles.
Diet: The kid loves his food! Especially blueberries! He could eat all the blueberries in the world and still want more. They are his absolute favorite (which is funny because I craved blueberries while I was pregnant and ate them all the time)! He also loves grapes, bread, waffles, scrambled eggs, fruit smoothies, pasta, tuna sandwiches, crackers and yogurt. He gets picky with veggies so we try and hide them in pasta and smoothies. I’ve noticed that textures sometimes bother him… just like his daddy!
Loves: We recently learned how much Camden loves the water! While visiting family in Florida, we took Cam to the beach for the first time! He was not scared of the water or the waves at all. He actually crawled into the waves with a huge smile on his face. He was totally in his element! We also went swimming in a pool for the first time. He loves that too! The water was cold but my little fish-baby didn’t mind, he was busy splashing and kicking! We have a rec center and a water park down the street so we will be spending all summer in the water!
Dislikes: He’s been in an anti-stroller phase the last few weeks. He prefers to be carried. I loooove carrying him but he is SO heavy!!! So thank goodness for our Ergo carrier and our Sakura Bloom ring sling!
Milestones: He’s a pro-crawler at this point and is so quick, I can barely keep up. He has been practicing standing on his own and even took a couple steps today! He wants to walk so bad and his determination is SO sweet. He is def an Aries!
He can eat like a big boy and since he has SIX TEETH (he worked hard for those teeth), he can actually chew his food. We have felt more comfortable giving a more of a variety of food now, instead of purely soft bites.
His independence makes me really proud. Each month that passes the more and more he becomes content with toys (or garbage like bottles, boxes etc.) and less dependent on me having to sit right next to him. As much as I LOVE feeling needed its nice to see my little guy self sooth, play and dance on his own. It also allows me to get things done!
Cam is also aware of so much more these days! He points to things he wants, waves to friends and claps when he he feels proud.
Speech: He talks literally all day long and I LOVE it! What is he talking about?? No clue, but there will be a ma-ma, da-da or ba-ba every couple of minutes. He is starting to mimic tones and syllables with babbles which is super cute!

A friend hand-made this bear rug for Camden and gave it to us for our shower. He LOVES it!
Started using a new line of dye and changed my color a bit. Arctic Fox Hair Color is a vegan and cruelty free brand that also donates 15% of their proceeds to help animals! You can achieve this color by mixing mostly WRATH, some PURPLE RAIN and a little bit of POISON. Diluted with ARCTIC MIST. My color has lasted for almost a month now! Its still vibrant and feels super healthy. I HIGHLY recommend this brand! BUY HERE<<
