He unsuccessfully tried to figure out how to get his helmet on all by himself. Too Cute!

Saturday Camden turned 19 months old! He is now out of the stage of using months when telling people his age :( haha, I am okay with my baby growing up, I guess :) We are having so much fun these days as Camden is learning new things and saying new things everyday. As Aaron put it, "he is just so little bitty, but such a big boy all at the same time".

This is probably going to be long. I just want to get a list going of milestones that Camden has hit. I can not believe he is already eighteen months old! I love being his mommy more than anything in the world, and I am so thankful for the amazing partnership Aaron and I have. God has blessed me in ways I never could have imagined, and I so look forward to what he is going to do next!
It snowed only one time on January 19, 2008. Three and a half weeks left as a family of two.
Camden was born at 10:10 PM on Tuesday, February 12, 2008. He weighed 8 lbs, 15.4 ounces, and he was 21.5 inches long.
Camden started smiling socially when he was seven weeks old, and has not stopped!
Six months old. Camden started sitting on his own and got his first tooth during his sixth month. He babbled a ton with a very deep baby voice.
Camden started crawling right at ten months old.
Camden was a frog for his first Halloween. When we went trick or treating, he wore a crown and was his cousin Camilla's Prince Charming.
Camden had to have a tube placed in his left ear, after a horrible ear infection that would not clear up after multiple rounds of antibiotics. He started sleeping through the night just two days later.
One year old! Sweet as can be. We are so thankful to God for this amazing gift he has given us. I am so thankful to be Camden's mommy.
Fifteen months old! Camden started to really come out of his shell during his fifteenth month. He started talking much more AND walking!!!
Eighteen months old!!!! I can not believe my sweet baby is a year and a half!!!!!! We are so thankful for him, and he is just the perfect son for us.
running, talking, and playing.
He says regularly: Mama, Dada, Bob, Camilla, all done, uh-oh, oh no!, duck, cow, moo, quack, eat, bye-bye, peace, hey, muah, Jake, car, ball, shoes, please, and all sorts of animal noises (pig, cow, duck, cat, dog, horse, fish, bird, lion, tiger).
He loves to give hugs and kisses, and cuddles more than any child I have ever met.
He is sleeping about 11-12 hours at night, and takes a 2-3 hour nap on Aaron everyday. He sleeps with a blankie made for him by his best friends grandmother. Every night we read, "On the Night You Were Born", "5 Little Puppies", and "I'll See You in the Morning".
He throws and catches balls with Daddy and Mommy. Camden enjoys playing outside more than anything in the world, well except for cuddling, maybe :)

An entire month ago we returned from vacation to the beach. It was our very first family vacation, and really could not have been any more amazing or perfect. We drove down to stay at the Sells' condo on Thursday, July the ninth. We had an easy ride down, although Camden did whine a bit and refused to sleep until we were almost there. It was just nice to be getting out of Birmingham and away from all work, just the three of us.
We got to the condo, unloaded the car, and had lunch at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville Cafe. We all enjoyed some delicious burgers, and all of the women doted on Camden. He was being quite the ham! After lunch we were off the the beach. Camden loved the sand, the waves, the sunshine, and we all enjoyed the breeze off of the ocean. The entire time we were there, the weather was just perfect. It was not too hot, breezy, no rain; we could not have asked for anything better!
This is Camden saying "peace" at the restaurant.
Camden loved the water, but seemed to enjoy playing in the sand even more. He played for well over an hour all by himself one day.......adorable!
It was a much needed break, and Aaron and I could not have enjoyed it any more than we did. We are so in love with Camden, and are so thankful that God blessed us with the perfect little boy for us.
