Mom's Day


" Emma, my turn to steer"




**friends**

Today was Wednesday, which means "Mom's Day," a few of my local girlfriends and I get together for lunch and good times...but not babyless..so you never know how mom's group is going to pan out! Well, today it was great! Everyone was happy...including mommies! Camryn's friend Emma is 2 months older than her, but they are becoming good friends. Here are my favorite pics from the day!

A Man After My Own Heart








I'm not going to lie- a crawling baby makes life so much busier! Hence me not posting in quite some time! And hence my wonderful hubby helping out with some chores. He was slightly against me taking these pictures, then turned into a good sport.:)

I recently bought this sling...having Camryn in her big-girl car seat requires her in a stroller/cart or arms when we run anywhere! Those once quick trips to the grocery store are long gone..except now with my sling they are making a comeback! I can carry her in, and still dig money out of my purse to pay a whole lot more efficiently! It makes life easier..note the "neutral pattern" of the sling, as it may one day need to be used for a boy!:)...but I AM NOT PREGNANT, THAT WAS NOT A HINT!!!

ANYWAY- Troy cleaned with Camryn on his hip! She loved it and he secretly did too! And me...I just think they are too cute!

Once again, I have an amazing husband who isn't "too good" for anything! I LOVE HIM!!

CAMRYN'S CRAWLING!

There she goes- little stinker crawled right accross the living room floor this morning for a ribbon and to get to my camera case! She has been shuffling and rocking, and this is her first real long distance crawl!! I can't lie..it brought a little tear to my eye. One more sign that my baby is growing up.

CUTIE PATOOTIE


WE
LOVE
THE

PARK!

Back!


this little face warms my heart

tic-tac-toe

busy staring

eating grass

These past few Spring-like days have us super busy doing fun things! Today was no different! After attempts to get together with friends..we ended up going to the park alone and making new friends! Camryn loved the big swings and loved staring at all the other kids even more! We went down the slide together, played a little tic tac toe, rode the bouncy bunny, and took numerous laps around the park just taking in God's goodness. Camryn was super tired this afternoon and took a 2 hr nap during which time Mommy sat in the sun and read and even got a little bit of color on her face-hooray! Winter white be gone! We love being outside!!

Diaper Revolt

" peek-a-boo Mommy'




Whenever Camryn is just in a diaper, she wrestles to get it off! Here she is in action! She's never gotten it off, but it's only the beginning! I have a feeling I'll be breaking out the duct tape soon!

Modeling Gig

Camryn got her first "unofficial modeling gig":) There is a lady that makes bows for babies hair. I recently started making my own for Camryn but I ordered a few from this lady to see how they are made...well, I sent her a picture of Cam with her bow with my thanks and she asked if she could use the pic of Camryn on her website, and on etsy where she sells. Troy and I decided it would be fine, as long as her name is nowhere on the site.

In return, she is sending us all the bows we want!!:)
WOO HOO!!

I will post the name of the site once pics are up!!

Cam "the Hair" Sauer






* disclaimer..in this picture she was not in a windtunnel or chewing on plastic:)


This head of hair makes me nervous about the future..what in the world are we going to do with it? I am praying as she gets more it will GO DOWN. Here in the light, there is no mistaking the height of this "do."

Cammers- 9 month stats

*wt.- 17 lb 11 oz. (40%)
*ht.- 28.5 inches (85 %)

*These stats indicate she is destined to be long and skinny! Just like her Daddy!!

head circum.- 44 cm. (50%)

The Doctor sais she is perfect! We already knew it! :)

Just So You Know She Was Happy









Happy girl in the pool!

First Swimming Lessons

Doing the "Jay-Bird Float"..look at those chunky legs!!

Throw and fetch out in front!!

Love from Daddy! This melts my heart!!


A small group for first lessons...perfect!


First getting in the pool...

Tonight was Cam's first swimming lesson! She loves the tub so I figured the pool would be no different!

Troy and I ooooed and awwwed when we put her in her little suit and loaded her up to get to the pool. The district that Troy teaches in teams up with the Y to offer lessons, it's perfect for us!

We decided that Troy would go in the pool this time around, since he has conferences next week and won't be able to go. He was really excited and I could see that little twinkle in his eye.

Camryn got right in the pool with Daddy and without a fuss. They dipped down to their shoulders and bounced while singing. The instructor had Troy hold her to float on her back, and her belly. They also threw out a little toy ahead of them in the pool and Camryn had to paddle her arms to get to it. They went down a little raft slide and also used the noodles. Camryn liked best when Daddy blew bubbles in the water in front of her!

She did so well! ..We pulled in the garage and I looked back at her in the car seat and SHE WAS OUT! I didn't hear a peep the whole way home!
I am guessing she will sleep well tonight!
