This little dude is 17 months old today. And simply said - he's amazing. He fills our lives with so much love and joy it's incredible. I get more and more obsessed with him each day.
So let's see. This kid talks non stop (except around strangers...until he warms up, of course!) A few of his newest words are turtle, blue, naked, and ball (hearing him say turtle is my most favorite thing ever!) He loves, loves, loves animals!! He does great at puzzles. And is still obsessed with books. We've started working on colors and right now everything is blue. He loves to count things as well and knows when he has 1 thing or 2 things in his hands. Recently he's been really into holding our hands and giving us kisses on them. It melts my heart every.single.time. He loves to play ring around the rosie - he cracks up every time!! :) He loves to build forts and put all his stuffed animals in it!! He has fantastic manners and I'd say he says 'thank you' unprompted about 50% of the time, which I think is pretty darn good for a 17 month old!
He's a total mama's boy still and I wouldn't change it for the world. We are down to nursing only at night. Some days he eats great - other days he barely eats....typical toddler fashion from what I hear! He'll always eat eggs, olives, applesauce, and watermelon though. He is usually asleep between 7:15pm and 7:30pm and is awake by 6:30 most mornings. I think he'll be transitioning to 1 nap pretty soon.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a ton....but this is him in a nutshell. He's pretty darn amazing and being his parents is the best thing in the whole entire world!!
Camden - mama and dada love you so, so much!!
This Easter was a little different for us. We actually spent most of the day in the Albany airport and on a plane since we left on Easter Sunday for a week of fun in the sun in sunny Florida (more on our trip later this week...I promise!) Since we flew out of Albany on Sunday, we had stayed at Matt's sister's house Saturday night. But luckily the Easter Bunny found us there and Camden LOVED his Easter basket!! It was extra special for me because it was the first time he was legitimately excited about opening something and you could tell he just LOVED everything :) These are the moments that I never want to forget...
