Elmo & Chicago


It has been a while since I have posted on here, but we wanted to update everyone on how we are doing. Hillary and I went to Chicago for an extended weekend and left our two "precious" children with their grandparents. By the way, they are way more "precious" after you have been away for a little while. We saw the musical, Rent, actually got to sleep in some, go shopping, enjoy time with just each other, and eat an entire meal without interruption...that was the best (well, maybe not the best!!)

Anyway, we dropped Cam off with our good friends, April and Ryan where Camden got to experience his first live show featuring one of his favorite TV stars...ELMO!! I can only imagine how excited he was. He got this cool light-up toy that spins and has Elmo on the top. He plays with it ALL the time. They said Cam was mesmerized and was pointing to all the characters he knew (Elmo, Big Bird, Ernie, Burt, Oscar, The Count). He just loves hanging out with the Docks...and doesn't Ryan look like such a big boy with his Cars back pack? Thanks guys, for taking care of our little guy, he adores you both.

This picture is my favorite, because Camden has been into trying to smile lately (you can see how well that is working for him). He scrunches up his nose shows his teeth, but thinks he is making the coolest face ever. He cracks up after he does it everytime; probably because he makes everyone laugh at his ridiculous face, but he thinks he is a comedian. Camden walks around the house holding any number of objects up to his eyes and saying, "cheese" then pulls that goofy face. It is a riot to watch him pick up things we do in his own interpretation. He is always surprising us and making us laugh. Cam is also a really good brother to Kendall. Sorry no pictures of her this time, but she is still healthy and actually starting to laugh a little with some of mommy's tickling. We are so blessed to have two wonderful children. Stay posted for upcoming Easter pictures...don't think that Hillary hasn't had at least 3 outfits on Kendall already in preparation for the big day (Happy Easter, Jesus). And yes, the outfit that has been decided upon, has been laid out with all its accessories all week.

We had so much fun with him that day. He is the best little boy ever. We can't wait to see who comes to town when Kendall gets a little older!
