I haven't done an update on Camden in a little while so I figured this would be a fun way to do that. Enjoy!
Making: lots and lots of noise all the time - seriously this kid is never quiet (unless he's around new people.) He repeats everything - says a lot of things in full sentences and in general just makes a lot of noise!! He also sings a lot and it's just about the cutest thing ever <3
Drinking: just milk and water. We don't do juice or any other beverages in our house.
Reading: as many books as he can. His favorites are any Sandra Boynton book (especially Snuggle Puppy right now), any Sesame Street book, and Good Night, Good Night Construction Site. He pretty much loves any book and quite honestly his favorite changes quite often.
Wanting: to be able to watch as much Elmo as he wants (but that ain't happenin' - sorry bud ha-ha)
Playing: with water (give the kid a hose and he's the happiest kid alive!) and with all his stuffed animals. Seriously, this kid LOVES his stuffed animals and has SO many of them.
Enjoying: daycare. He really loves going and playing with his friends (even if he does bite them and pull their hair - oy!)
Liking: to be naked. Even if we just take his shirt off he yells 'I naked now' and gets SO excited ha-ha It's so funny!
Loving: his mama something fierce. I can't say it enough - he's such a mama's boy and I LOVE it <3 He also loves going to the local children's museum, the zoo, taking a bath, going on donut 'dates' with mom and/or dad, and reading books.
Watching: short Elmo videos on YouTube when mama and dada allow it :) His favorites right now are the Elmo brushing your teeth one and Adam Sandler's Song about Elmo.
Wearing: whatever he helps pick out. We find getting dressed (either in pj's or regular clothes) is a lot less of a struggle if he gets to help pick out what he wears. I thought this was a thing only girls went through...apparently not!! As far as size goes - for pj's and shirts he is in mostly 18 months. For shorts he's in 12 months but can wear some 18 month ones.
Knowing: how to count to 10 (and to 20 with some help) and a lot of his ABC's.
Eating: not a whole lot most days. He still loves black olives, the banana/egg pancakes I make him, and raspberries. He's really been into smoothies lately, too. Oh, and applesauce. He looooves, looooves applesauce.
Getting: so incredibly big - and independent - and stubborn. And smart. So, so smart. I've said it from day one. He is so, so smart and doesn't miss a thing these days. He amazes us DAILY!!
Disliking: not getting his way. But what toddler does like that?! He can throw a temper tantrum like no other let me tell ya. He knows what he wants and he wants it NOW! :-p
Giggling: all the time at mommy and daddy. He thinks it's so funny when we tickle him, or chase him, or throw him in the air. He loves to tease us and is always so proud of himself when he 'gets' us ;-)
He is such a joy every day (even on his bad days!) Every day Matt and I say to each other how lucky we are and how amazing he is. He's so fun to be around. He keeps us on our toes and quite honestly he's the best thing that has ever happened to us. We know we're biased but he's quite the handsome little dude as well. Everywhere we go someone stops us and tells us how cute he is and that he should model so it's not just us :) Overall, we think he's perfect!!
