More new shoes

We picked up a cute pair of Elmo slippers for Cam today at Target (but forgot the Nyquil mommy acutally went there for - darn!). He's totally fascinated with them. They are slowing down a little bit right now, but we figure that's temporary.

We also found the adorable froggie rainboots but sadly, the only size they had is too big for Cam - he needed help to walk b/c his feet slid so far out of them, lol. I'll try to exchange them up in the Bay area next week for a smaller size. We've gotten a fair amount of rain today, and will only be able to keep Cam inside for so long :) Maybe these will keep his feet and pants a bit drier.

Now to find a raincoat!

Quick update

Very sorry for the lack of posts: we've had a little rough spot sleeping-wise over here and I'm behind in life in general. Got some great new photos and video; I'll get to it over this holiday weekend :)

Cam has been waking up earlier and earlier the last week or so; since last Thursday he's been waking up at 4am and not going back to sleep. Made daycare tough last week b/c they are migrating him to a new room with older kids and a very set routine - no morning nap and everyone goes down for naps from 12:30 until whenever they wake up. Cam waking up at 4am has made it very hard for him to get to 12:30 and take a decent nap.

On top of that he's had some nasal congestion and a little cough for the last couple of weeks. After this past weekend, I decided to bring Cam to the docter b/c I was sure he had an ear infection (yes, I know he has tubes but all his rolling around and messed up sleeping reminded me so much of them!). Luckily I was wrong, but the doctor did diagnose him with a bronchial/sinus infection and he's on antibiotics for the next 5 days. Hopefully this will help the little guy feel better and sleep more comfortably. Fingers crossed!!

Cam got weighed at the doc's office and tipped the scales at 29.5lbs. No height measurement, but K and I unofficially put a tap measure to him over the weekend and he was 32.5" tall. Photos/videos soon!!

New (old) shoes

With the new room at daycare, Cam gets to spend more time outside playing and they asked that he get some actual shoes, not the leather slipper-like shoes he's been wearing since learning how to walk a few months back. Our doctor wants us to put off hard-soled shoes as long as possible, so we've been looking for some new shoes for Cam that had more sole than the Robeez but not as hard as most kids shoes.

My good friend Evelyn has a son about 6 months older than Cam and she gave us a pair of her son's outgrown shoes to try out - SeeKaiRun. We like them a lot - there is some sole but its very flexible - and Cam, of course, is in love with his feet now. He likes the noise he can make with them - like he was so quiet before, lol!!

Aunt Lolly - Cam discovered the backpack you gave him at the baby shower a couple of months ago in his room and loves to carry it all over the house. He can't work the zipper yet, but when its open, he will put all kinds of different toys in it, bring them to another room and take them out. :) It was such a thoughtful gift; thank you!!

Big boy at the table

Cam seems to be growing so fast these days; every day he's accomplished something new. Today we were hanging out in the afternoon and Cam pointed up to the chair, so I sat him up in it. He loved it! Pretty soon we'll all be having dinner at the table together - Cam'll be in a booster seat though :)

I've got to get a shot of his "monster" socks - he's got a pair of them on here and they are the cutest things ever! They've got these cute little toes on the end - adorable!!

hopefully in this photo you can't see the big bruise he's got in the middle of his forehead from smacking his head on the table he has lunch at now at daycare - navigating sitting there is going to take a bit of practice :)

And the hair maintenance continues...

So it turns out that hair keeps growing after you cut it! :) Cam was starting to look like bozo again after naps, and that is apparently our cue to get his hair cut. Turns out the gal that gave Cam the buzz back in July got fired b/c that was the only way she could cut kids hair, lol. They did a great job this time! Still a cutie pie but that's pretty hard to mess up :)
isn't the shirt adorable? Auntie Cyndi sent it for Cam's birthday.

Only a matter of time...

Stage 1: Cam sees Charlie and Chance (go running away from him) go out the doggie door. Cam stands and bangs on he window to get their attenion.

Stage 2: Only a matter of time before Cam goes *out* the doggie door after the doggies :)

Crazy non-sleeping kick

Cam is going through a weird phase where he's not sleeping at daycare...on Tuesday, he slept for 35 mins for the 8 hours he was there. To say he was a wreck when he got home just before 5pm is an understatment, however, it took about 3 minutes to get him down for a nap. He slept for about an hour, then went to bed around 8:30pm, way later than his usual 7pm.

Yesterday we had him take a nap at home in the morning since he woke up at 5:30am - here he slept from 8:15am to 10am. Thank gosh b/c he slept about 45 mins at daycare. Today we sent him over a little earlier than usual and the plan is to pick him up earlier than usual - we don't want him to start thinking he never has to sleep at daycare. Since he was up from 12:30am - 3am this morning, we're hoping he'll sleep a bit over there. We'll see!

Dancing on the doggie door

Cam grabbed the doggie door, dragged it out to the living room and had a little dance of it. He was tired of it pretty quick but it sure was cute while it lasted :)

Blue Eyes

Daddy got this great shot of Cam with our new camera - so hard to believe he's so grown up already. Its only been barely a year and Cam is definitely a little man :)

Cam in the pantry

Cam still loves the pantry - its more fun than ALL of his toys (except for maybe the wagon). He's getting pretty tall, however, and reaching up to grab whatever he can get his hands on. Including all the glass items :) We keep moving them up, but he's now taught himself to step *up* into the pantry (and also back himself down!) to reach higher.

So the pantry will probably be off-limits soon, and we won't get these great, crazy shots of Cam trying to eat icing or lemon extract. But we also won't have to worry about him dropping the pasta sauce and cutting himself! A good trade-off :)

...I was talking to the duck

Caught Cam in mid-laugh today - daddy was slapstick funny :)
