Right handed

Here's a video clip of Cameron walking. I think he's going to be right handed because he takes small steps with his left foot and huge ones with his right foot. It's really funny. I'm also working on getting him to run backwards. This isn't his best work.

Here's...an update

1. Cameron had his nine month well check today, and he's just so perfect. 75th percentile for height and 45th for weight. He already has two bottom teeth and is cutting four top teeth. The pediatrician said to start feeding him the same food that I eat, which I just have to say is kinda SCARY for me. And last but not least, he is just moving around so fast, it's hard to keep up with him, standing on everything, and has the ever dreaded separation anxiety. But still, oh so perfect. And here are some pictures of Cameron having fun in the grass.


The sun in his eyes.

2. Clint comes home in 20 days, June 5th. I cannot wait, I'm so excited. And on June 20th we move to Montana, 2 days after my summer classes are over.

3. Speaking of summer classes, I realized that I love summer semester and hate the regular semesters. For fifteen weeks I am incredibly stressed and all the assignments and projects just pile up at the end of the semester. I have fifteen weeks to be stressed. But, during the summer semester, which is half as long, I don't get the chance to be stressed for very long. It's wonderful.

Lillian

My sister Jenny tagged me to use the letters of my middle name to describe me. And since I hate to be serious, I figure I'll just use some...well interesting words.

L-Limeade: a little sour, and a lot sweet.
I-Irregular: Not in the way you think. I'd have to admit I'm a bit weird, but aren't we all? I can be all over the place and back again in my mind.
L-Learner: Since I'm still in school, I'd have to say I'm a learner, but hopefully that will be the case for the rest of my life.
L-Leggings: I'm like leggings because I cling to my husband and family.
I-Invincible: I like to pretend that I'm invincible, but really... Not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, you name it.
A-Affordable: I'd like to think that I'm not really a big spender, and I know when to stop. My husband can afford me.
N-Necessary: As much as I'd like to think that I could just let Cameron play by himself every once in a while, and that he really doesn't need me to play with him all the time, it just isn't that way. But secretly I love it.

Let's see: I tag Sarah.

Can't a mom get any sleep?

I fell asleep on the couch today for no more than five minutes. And I wake up to Cameron standing by the couch whining and pulling on my feet. I also woke up to this...


Gee, I'm a lucky duck! Notice the speaker pulled way off the shelf. Once I found him eating ranch dressing out of a little container I accidentally left lying around. Won't do that anymore. But, no worries, he just puked it all up all over me. Woot!

Speaking of Crawling

Okay, so Cameron was doing this funky Army crawl FOREVER, and he finally started to crawl for real! Now I miss the army crawl cause it was so dang cute. He is also pulling himself up like crazy and using anything and everything to stand up, especially the drawers in the kitchen. I have to keep all the other doors shut so he doesn't go into any of the other rooms while I'm not looking and hurt himself.

Here is a cute picture of Cameron.
