Are you still reading?

Who knows if anyone still checks the Novak blog, but here I am anyway! My motivation for blogging is that some day I KNOW I'll want to look back and remember the funny things my kids were doing and how I was feeling during this time of my life. Here's my monthly recap! I'm a proud momma....lots of bragging to follow!!

Camden is now 2 yrs and 3 months. He might be the busiest kid I've ever known! Cam has a zest for life that just doesn't quit. From the minute he's awake until he lays his head on the pillow, he is running, exploring, asking questions, and testing limits. :) We have most definitely entered the glorious age of 2!!! Joel and I continue to pray for patience and wisdom to raise our sweet boy! As difficult as some moments can be, this stage is our favorite so far because Camden is talking so much, learning new things everyday and cracking us up!!! He loves fire trucks and rescue vehicles, the movies Nemo and Cars, playing outside, and pizza. :) Today Camden said, "I love being home, Mom. It's beautiful here". He is precious and we're so proud of him!

Kendall will be 8 months on Sept 22. She comes in at a close 2nd to the busiest kid I've ever known. Kendall tries her hardest to keep up with Cam, following him EVERYWHERE. Camden can always make Kendall laugh and smile....they are best friends. Kendall crawls and pulls up on furniture, toys, your legs, and anything else you can imagine. She hands out smiles so easily and strangers make the biggest deal of her. Lately she has been scrunching up her nose because she just can't smile big enough. Too cute. Kendall loves trucks (I know, I know...we're working on it), playing ring around the rosy on our laps and "falling down", tickling with her daddy, and FOOD! She recently started eating big people food and loves fruits and veggies, banana bread, and mashed potatoes! We're having Kendall dedicated at church this Sunday and are looking forward to celebrating her! She is a blessing and we're so proud of her too!

Joel and I are doing great....stealing moments for eachother whenever we can! We LOVE date night, for sure! :) We're getting excited about finishing our basement. Things are busy, but good. Here are the latest pictures of the kids!

Your kids are so cute...not that you need me to tell you that:) I love the pic of Camden with the tape measure--you need to head over to Costco asap because we just got Aaron a Black & Decker tool kit there for $20...they look just like daddy's and work the same too, even with an interchangeable battery! Aaron LOVES them:)

Hi Hillary! Dan and I have a link to your blog on our blog, so we definitely know when you post an update. I love hearing about what you are doing since we don't get to see each other enough! Keep posting pictures :)

Love you!

Ok I love that the blankets I made for the kids made these few pictures, that means they are being used and that is what they are for.....I love the fact the kids love the blankets. They don't make them anymore so that means you can't have anymore kids, ha ha ha Your Camden and Kendall are just precious and I love the pictures. Love you guys, Penny

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