The Sock Fairy

*note the sock
Camryn continues to go down easier and easier for naps..I am really beginning to read her cues on getting sleepy and successfully getting her in her crib before the window of opportunity closes:) This afternoon I went to get her up from her nap and this is how I found her sock. It was laying perfectly above her head as if someone had taken it off, stretched it out and placed it perfectly there, although neither Troy or I touched it. I have no idea how it got there....but how funny...blame it on the sock fairy.

Troy here. Camryn slept until 8:30 this morning....much to our delight! The pictures below are her on my lap while watching episodes of "The Office." I think she likes the show as much as I do. This coming Friday I begin preseason at Messiah and the following Wednesday is my first in-service day for school, so I've been soaking up as much time w/ Camryn as possible. She continues to be so much fun!!!

Today was quite adventurous as Mommy decided it would be a great idea to self-clean the oven. In my defense, some olive oil had dripped off the cookie sheet when I was making sweet potato ff (yum!)So every time I used the oven it was SMOKEY!! SO needless to say today was the day....yes, we had to throw open the windows and with it being as hot is was today we decided to get out and run some errands, well adventure #2 was Camryn's blowout in the car seat. Up until this point she would only poop when we were feeding her (something went in/something came out) We were hoping that it would stay that way but our wishes were in vain. We got home to a mess! Thankfully though we could laugh about it as I am sure there will be many more! It is around 9:11- Camryn is bathed, daddy is feeding her, and I have a spotless oven...all in all a good day! Here's a picture of our growing girl!

Flower Picking

My dear husband knows me so well that instead of buying me flowers, he knows I'd rather go cut my own! We decided to go this afternoon and boy was it HOT! We took sweet Camryn along in her sundress in case any photo oppurtunities arose:) And boy they did! I ended up cutting the rest of the flowers and Daddy and Camryn headed for the air-conditioned car! Needless to say I have a beautiful bundle of flowers on my island and some really cute pictures!

Talking, Talking, Talking

Camryn is back to herself again! Praise God!

2 Month Check and SHOTS!

Today was Camryn's 2 month check up apt and the (drum roll) SHOTS! First for the good stuff, Camryn woke up this morning happy as a lark, I must add that this is her wake-up disposition every morning. I made chocolate chip pancakes for Troy and I and Camryn sat in her bouncy swing and talked and smiled! We got to the Dr's office and the nurse came into the waiting area and called Camryn's name. Well another lady with her baby got up as well as us, but her Camryn (probably Cameron) was a boy! It was crazy, the only 2 people in the waiting room and we both had Camryn's. So those of you that know the story can imagine the hairy eyeball I got from Troy (who was a skeptic in naming Camryn because it is TRADITIONALLY a boys name) Needless to say we made it to the examine room and the nurse says, "undress Mister Camryn down to the diaper." I got the eyeball from Troy again as he kept using she, and her in his responses to the nurse so she would get the hint. Thankfully, on the way home we both agreed that she won't be mistaken for a boy long as people notice her girly face, long eyelashes and stylish girl clothes mommy and daddy wear on her!:) And just to set the record straight, we are SUPER glad we named her Camryn...she's just a Camryn.:)And it's a GREAT girl's name!

So she now weighs a whopping 12 lbs (90th percentile), 23 inches (75 percentile) and 75th for her head size. She's a growing girl! Shots didn't start off so well as the nurse spun her around on the table to face her, I think she scared Camryn who immediately started crying, so she was crying even before the shots:( The first shot she let out this shriek and Troy and I both looked at each other, for we have never heard the cry of pain before--and let me tell you, it is pretty distinguishable:( She took the other 2 like a champ, daddy held and dressed her back up and she was just about asleep in the car seat when we left the office-PHEW! She came home and ate and slept another hour and a half and woke up SCREAMING! We finally calmed her to eat again, gave her another dose of Tylenol and she is sleeping again. (I think exhausted from crying)Anyway, I am hoping each hour hereafter gets a little better.... I realize now when mommy's and daddy's say they would "cut off an arm for their child" I wanted to take those shots for her!!!! Some pictures of the shot sites and our little lovie...pray for peace for her tonight as she sleeps!!

The Safari

Look, it's Camryn in the safari...not really, she's in her bouncy seat on our deck! Troy needed a haricut so we decided to cut it out on the deck (less hair clean-up) Dear Camryn joined us in her bouncy seat and watched intently as mommy cut daddy's hair!!! She smiled away and loved her straw hat!! She is doing so well.... eating, sleeping, and just being cute!!
