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!

Here we are exactly three months before Camden joined our family.

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!

Three months old! laughing with Daddy :)

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.

Nine months old!

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.

These days Camden is:

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 :)
