Michigan vacation!

Well we just returned from our annual trip up to Traverse City Michigan for Fall Break. We had such a great time relaxing and hanging out with the family! We ate GREAT food (thanks to Nana!), played games, watched movies and the world series :), and just spent time together! Both Camden and Gage were SUCH good boys. Driving 6+ hours in the car will test anyone's patience, but they did outstanding! Both kids slept great and were good at restuarants....that becomes a big deal when you're parents! It's a success if you didn't ruin anyone's meal. Ha! It's getting so fun to watch them play together. They love to kiss! :) Check out some of the great pictures we took.....we're already planning next year's trip!

4 month checkup!

Well Camden had his 4 mo. checkup this's so hard to believe that 4 months have gone by! It seems like we just brought our 7 lb 10 oz baby home! Now, he weighs in at a whopping 14.2 lbs and is 26 in. long. Getting SOOO big! He looked so sweet laying naked on the exam table smiling and flirting with Dr. Schulz. :) Aside from those nasty shots (which are much harder on Mom than Cam), everything went really well! The Dr. wants us to start trying to feed Camden cereal once a day. Here is a picture of our first attempt. The pic is cute...but it DID NOT go well. :) Cam spits it everywhere and makes a terrible face like it's the worst tasting stuff ever! We gave up after he about arched himself out of his chair. We'll keep trying....I think he's probably saying forget the rice cereal....let's have some Froot Loops like Dad! :) We get pretty inventive when playing on the floor these days. Here's Camden rolling around in his dress. :)

Camden is super excited about his fall wardrode! :) Stay tuned for more cute pictures in big boy clothes!

Camden meets Mason!

This past week has been so fun getting to visit with my very best friend Jessica and her precious son Mason ( you too, Brent! Ha!). Jess and Brent were in town for a week and we got to spend some time catching up and letting the boys play. Mason and Camden are 1 month apart and already know they're best buddies! They were such good boys while their Mommy's talked and talked and talked! Camden even shared his mat and showed Mason all his toys! Jess is an incredible Mom, and it was awesome to see her in action. I always knew she'd be a great Mom, but to see her interact with Mason was just so neat. Mason was such a cuddler....I LOVED holding him and loving on him! Jess and I always pick right up where we left off dispite the long distance and now that we're Moms, I really miss having her close. I can't wait to schedule our next play date! Mason, Camden wants to know how you get your hair to look so cool?? He says to tell his Mom what kind of gel you use! :) Check out some pictures from our time together....

The latest pics....

Hey guys! We thought we'd post Camden's latest pictures! He's getting so big....we can't wait to see what he weighs at his 4 mo. appointment on Oct. 10th. We call this his "Mom, I'm gonna punch you if you take one more picture of me in the tub" picture. :) I can't resist!

Check out those cute new green pj's. They say "hop into bed!" The hat was just for picture's sake...we didn't make our poor son sleep in it. :)

Next, a shout out to friends Alex and Amy Renes in Colorado! Thanks for the cool Rockies uniform...Camden is just now big enough to wear it! Joel's already tying that right hand behind his back, so we might have a lefty in our future! :) Camden told us to tell you that he is ready for a little Renes buddy....or girlfriend!

Finally, just a sneak peak at a future post....Camden with his best long distance buddy Mason Hodges! Jess and Brent are here for a visit, and we've LOVED spending time with them! More adorable pictures to come....they deserve their very own post. :)

The Novaks...

Camden loves to smile, laugh, and be a busy boy. Kendall has her daddy right where she wants him!!
