  • Camden Turns The Wild One!

    After months of planning for Camden’s first birthday party the big day finally arrived! We were so excited to celebrate with our friends, family and the newest one year old on the block! The big day came quicker than I had ever imagined and I’m not going to lie, there were moments I couldn’t control the emotions. My baby is growing up so fast and I can barley keep up! It feels like just yesterday we were bringing our little bundle home to start a new life together. *teeears* Oh what an intense and amazing year it has been! A big sappy blog post on motherhood and our first year as bffs coming next week!

    Camden’s party was Pow-Wow/Tribal themed which meant tons of fun DIY projects for this crazy-crafting mama. I had saved several decorations from the baby shower which happened to be somewhat of the same color scheme so I was able to upcycle and reuse some. YAAAAS!

    In between naps after setting up and throughout all of the excitement I was able to capture a few detail shots and candid moments from the party.

  • Camden's 4 Month Update

    4 Months 

    Weight: 16.5lbs

    Length: 27 inches

    Diaper size: 2

    Clothing size: 6 months

    Health: We have our 4 month appointment coming up which means shots :( 

    Sleep: We attempted to nap-train him in his crib but that didn’t go over very well. He fusses then only sleeps for 30-45 minutes so back to the swing he went. He finally has a pretty set nap routine, although times do vary depending on his energy and mood. 

    He wakes up at about 7am, and SOMETIMES he will fall back to sleep in bed while nursing. But since he is a pretty solid night sleeper its not every morning. His first naps have been around 10:30-11 and sleep anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours. NEVER WAKE A SLEEPING BABY- so I let him sleep as much as he wants. He still takes a couple little catnaps here and there but those last only about 20 - 30 minutes. Then around 3:00 he takes his second nap of the day. Wakes up around 4:00-5:00. Bed time feedings start at 8 so he is usually asleep in his crib by 8:30. He still sleeps though the night but teething is happening so I am sure that will change. 

    We still swaddle him at night but have begun the weaning process. He sleeps with one arm out and doesn’t seems phased at all. Fingers crossed we get the same response when both arms are out!

    Diet: Breast milk and formula. We introduced him to apple juice as suggested by his doctor. We noticed discomfort when trying to poop, so we started giving him about 3 oz of diluted apple juiced. It’s been helping a ton! Plus I think the kiddo likes the taste. 

    Loves: Chewing on everything! Loves to be front facing in his carrier. He is starting to enjoy tummy time which make me a happy mama! Build those neck muscles! 

    Dislikes: Bath time is still not fun. This keep will NOT be the stinky kid in school who doesn’t bathe so we are buying him a new “tub” which hopefully will help and make him feel better. Still not a fan of the car, although we can get about 10 minutes of silence out of him if we bring all 5 million of his toys with him. :p I think he is getting better with his stroller, he seems to not HATE it. I think thats due to the fact that he can actually see whats in front of him now so he is too distracted by his surroundings to get pissy. 

    Milestones: He can push his whole upper body up and wiggle in different directions. I will put him down on his playmat, and 2 minutes later he is on the other side. He taught himself to self-sooth with his fingers. He has also started “talking”. Its crazy cute! He has also started playing with his toys. He recognizes the difference and definitely has preferred favorites.  

    Speech: He will have a full on baby conversation with his toys. I can tell he is going to be a chatter box when he can actually talk. Just like his mama and dada <3
