Big Boy!

Camden went for his 6 month appointment this week....unbelievable! This has been the fastest 1/2 year of my life! Cam weighs in at a whopping 16.5 pounds which puts him at slightly below average and is 27 inches long which is a tad bit tall! :) Overall, very normal! Dr. Schulz was impressed at how well Cam was sitting and predicted that we'd have a crawler very soon. After spending 10 min. with sweet Gage.....I've decided that I'd LOVE it if Cam stayed immobile for a little bit longer. :) Camden also got 4 shots, which becomes harder for Mommy every time. The more he's aware, the worse it is!! We were happily singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider and then Bam!! :) He looked at me like "how could you let this happen!!" As terrible as it is to see your baby hurting, I will tell you it's the BEST feeling to be the comforter. To be the one he reaches for....burying his head in my shoulder. I LOVE that part of mommyhood! Dr. was also impressed with how Camden eats like a Champ! She said he's ready for another feeding of solids each day. That means cereal at breakfast and bed and veggies at lunch and dinner....ALL WITH BOTTLES TOO!! Wow...that's a lot of food! As you can see from the following two pictures...there is NO time to wipe off the peaches before he is screaming for the bottle. Why is he so messy all the time?? Well if you don't shovel the food in fast enough, Cam is quick to tell you that you're doing it wrong. So, I'm resigned to the fact that it's a messy process. It's okay, I'm a cool mom. :) Check out our messy eater:

We love them all, but the pictures in the middle where Cam has the POOP face is histerical. You'll know when you see it! :)
