Super-Baby®, the crime fighting baby based in Paso Robles, CA, takes a morning spin looking for bad guys to drool on until the police arrive.

Tireless in his efforts to clean up the streets, he only takes a break during his naptimes at 9am, noon and 4:30pm. :)

Low-key week for the Burjewski's

Both Kevin and I are off work this week (I'm also taking the first week of January off), so we are spending a lot of time hanging out with Cam and fooling around. Yesterday, Cam was doing a great job of standing up, with Kevin just there to provide some balance! We know its just a reflex, but its still pretty cool :)

Four-star General

Grammie sent some adorable outfits for Cam; here he is modeling his four-star general shirt (he loves it!)

Merry Christmas!!

Cameron hopes that Santa was good to everyone; Santa and all his grandparents were wonderful to him - lots of goodies but he really only cared about the blinking tree lights and the paper (which he tried to put right into his mouth). Thank you Grammie and Grampie, Grams, and Grandpa and Grandma Janice!

We wanted to share this lovely photo with everyone; for Christmas we decided to hire a wonderful photographer to get some photos of Cam while he's this little. As you all know, we tried to get a good photo, but it just wasn't happening.

Monyeen did an amazing job - the photos turned out so well, she added them to her online portfolio, #5 and #9 in the newborn/toddler section. She's already fielding comments about "the baby Michelin-man" :) We loved her work and all of the grandparents got photo #5 in dual frame with a cast of Cam's footprint. She does work up in the Bay area, so we're adding a link to our favourites section and will DEFINITELY be calling her again when Cam will actually *smile* for the camera! Unless Sarah or Moray want to come visit us and do a photo session - both of you take FANTASTIC photos of your children!!

Happy Holidays from the Burjeski's!

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas Eve. Fingers crossed Santa is good to you!

Michelle, Kevin and Cameron

…But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night."

Auntie Sherry came to visit

Auntie Sherry came to visit us this week for a couple of days from the Bay area. Cam looooooooved her - he had so much fun playing with her, there was lots of laughs, giggles and shrieks coming from the living room while I got caught up with end-of-year work stuff.

We loved having her visit; the dogs got some much needed attention (Charlie is still checking the doors in the house looking for her), plus she did a ton of cooking again and our fridge is full of yummy food for the next week (yay, no cooking for mommy!). Big kisses to Mr. Keogh for loaning her to us, and we'll keep an eye out for the invoice :)

It's a Christmas miracle…

Cam slept from 10:30pm to 6:30am last night!! He did stir at 4am but only because he'd pushed his blankets off, so after tucking him back in, he started snoring away. WOW!!! Of course, we know its not a pattern until it happens 3 or more times in a row, but we are just enjoying that it happened at all :)

Holy guacamole!

Cam slept for 7 hours straight last night!!! We were floored!! And thrilled to get so much sleep in one go :)

We are paying the piper, though; Cam's been off so far today, very cranky. He refused to go down for his morning nap at all, despite lots of yawning and rubbing his eyes. Currently he's down for his lunchtime nap (was totally exhausted) and hopefully will be his typical happy self when he wakes up. Raining cats and dogs so no walk this afternoon but Auntie Sherry is visiting and he'll have fun playing with her.

But we had to share the 7 HOURS OF SLEEP AT NIGHT - woohooo!!!!!

Cameron went on safari…

…this morning. After being attacked by a giraffe (see the scratch on the side of his cheek), he wrested the unwieldly giraffe down by the ear while a zebra, bunny and chicken looked on. He's a scrapper!! :)

After the safari…

Cam took a nap on his favourite pillow, our golden retriever Charlie, with his safari prize, the giraffe.

Sorry for the lack of photos this week...

Its been a hectic week with work and holiday shopping; trying to get all the gifts ordered online (after seeing how sick Grant and James have gotten, I don't want to take Cam out anywhere for people to breathe on him and make him sick!) and all the boxes shipped to the east coast. We will have time this weekend to get caught up :)

To tide you over, here is a photo from last week of Cam chewing on a new toy that's supposed to help him with brushing his teeth - when he gets teeth (still lots of drooling but no teeth :) ). We need to disguise the camera b/c he gets that wild look in his eye when we try to take his photo.

Chillin' on a Sunday morning

Cameron spent the morning reading about different shapes to broaden his horizons. He devoured the book on squares :)

Cameron's first Christmas ornament

Grandma Janice gave this to Cam back in October and it was the first ornament on the tree, as well as being Cam's first ornament. We think it kinda looks like him with the chubby red cheeks and blue eyes :)

Thanks Grandma Janice!!

Christmas tree a-huntin'

We went out today to get our Christmas tree during a dry spell in the midst of our first real winter storm here on the central coast of California. It was pretty cold (to us, although east coasters won't think 50° is cold) but Cam was a real trouper; he hung out (literally) in the Baby Bjorn from Auntie Trina and chilled with dad while we waited to get our tree. Cam wore his holiday Santa hat to get in the spirit of the day - he's not nuts about it because it keeps slipping down over his eyes :)

Bath time!

I'm not sure how we managed this, but Cam will be 3 months old on Monday (!!!) and we have not ever gotten any photos of him at bathtime! We both give Cam a bath as part of his nightly "winddown" routine and don't usually have a camera in there. Tonight we finally had an opportunity to snap a picture.


Cam loves to be bounced on our legs and have the theme to "Bonanza" sung to him. Why, we have no idea but he laughs and giggles and it has brought him back from the brink of a meltdown a few times....gotta love the power of Bonanza!

Now, if we can just find a cowboy hat his size and he'd look just like Hoss Cartwright :)

Sweating for the Youngies

Cam had fun playing under the gym today - he's doing great holding up his head and trying to do pushups. Kevin wants me to note that when Cam kicks his legs while on his stomach, he farts. Its pretty funny and awfully consistent! He's starting to rollover in his crib, so we'll try to catch that on video to share :) So nice to have a photo where his eyes aren't glowing red from the flash!!

Oh, and his hair is coming back; looks like he might end up a tow-head like mommy and daddy were.

Cam the Moose-Elf :)

We went down to LA yesterday for Kevin's company holiday party at his boss' home in Tustin. The trip down was ok; Cam got within a half hour of Grandpa and Grandma Janice's house before having a meltdown. It was a rough afternoon but all three of us went to the party and Cam did super there, with the exception of when Sue (Kevin's boss's wife) tried to bring Cam into the dining room to meet the 40 or so people in there - waaaaaaaay too much for the little guy. But he loved being held by Sue (she did this cool semi-squat rocking that calmed him right down when he freaked out after seeing all the people) and was generally a very good boy, falling asleep on one of the bed's there for an hour and a half.

He slept pretty well at Grandpa and Grandma's, with the exception of accidentally punching daddy in the eye during the night :) No permanent damage! We had this cute Santa outfit for Cam to wear to the holiday party, but he ended up wearing his holiday Moose outfit with his Santa hat. We might try to get him into the Santa outfit and get a photo to share :) Aren't the moose-feet adorable?!?

We had a GREAT trip back home; Cam slept for the first hour, woke up at 10:30 so we pulled over, changed his diaper, fed him and played with him for about 45 mins, to let him out of his car seat for a while. He was such a good boy while we stopped, we got the last photo here. We got back on the road around 11:15 and got home around 2pm with no other stops :) Little guy did so awesome today!!

He was happy to be home; when Kevin took him out of the carseat and walked into the house, at first his eyes were all wild, but then he recognized where he was, totally relaxed and smiled this huge grin. We all had fun but were glad to be home. However, yet another weekend goes by without our Christmas lights going up!
