If you're happy and you know it...

Today is my day off and Cam and I had a great time painting the sidewalk with water! He loved holding all the brushes at once and cracked up multiple times when he dumped our bucket of "paint" out. :) Can you believe our precious 14 mo. old can spell his name?? :) Ha! Obviously that was with a little help, but we still think he's brilliant.

On August 13th, we celebrated Joel's 27th birthday! Camden and I are so thankful for him and all he does for us! Now that we have our own baby boy, I realize just how special birthdays are to your parents. I know that I will remember every detail of Cam's very first birthday, even 27 years later. Thank you Dan and Misty for raising such a loving husband and father...I'm so glad you brought him into the world! :) Check out Camden's special birthday song for his Daddy....he's been practicing so hard!

Goodbye summer!

As I start the last week of summer vacation, I am reminded once more of how thankful I am for my job. I absolutely LOVE the fact that I get to be home with Camden all summer, and I'm even more thankful that during the year, my schedule allows me to be home with him every other day. I think it's the perfect balance of adult/kid time. The middle of August doesn't feel near as daunting when I don't have to work everyday! So, I'm excited to start school, meet a new group of scared little 6th graders, and get back into our fall routine. I think Cam is ready to be back at Miss Becky's too. We're so blessed to have an awesome sitter that Camden adores!

New baby Novak is growing! We're starting to see a slight baby bump (mainly at night after dinner. Ha!) He/she hides again in the morning. We're 14 weeks along and are so thankful things are going well. 4 more weeks until we know whether Cam will have a brother or sister! I think I heard him say he wants a little sister. :)
No more news on the selling or buying of a house. We continue to pray that the perfect person comes along!

Check out a sneak peak of the pictures that Wade and Stephanie Carignan took of Camden....I can tell the rest will be ADORABLE! We'll be sure and share more when we get them!

1st Haircut!!

Camden was a super big boy today and got his first haircut! I couldn't trust anyone but Nicole at Shaggy Chic (except of course, my best Jess...but unfortunately we can't afford to fly Cam to AZ for a haircut. Ha!) to cut that crazy head full of cowlicks! Camden was very brave and didn't mind one bit that scissors were flying around his head. We had more of a problem keeping my wild child still. He is up for anything except being calm. :) Have I mentioned that I'm jealous of any parent who has lap sitter child?? Camden hasn't sat on our laps longer than 30 seconds his whole life. Needless to say, I had lots of tricks, songs, and snacks up my sleeve for his 10 min. haircut. :) Check out the pics...

After this big production, our little guy was worn out! Here's the final picture of the hair while Cam was conked out on the way home.

He looks like such a big boy with his new haircut!

The Novaks...

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