~ that sometimes when I'm talking about Camden to others I feel guilty that he's such a good baby. I find myself downplaying how good and smart he is and I don't want to do that. Hey - I'm a proud mama - I want to give him (and us) credit. I think we made some really great decisions and that reflects in him and I shouldn't down play that for any of us. And if you don't like - tough...deal with it ha-ha :-p
~ I signed us up for a summer CSA through a local farm. It's our first time being part of a CSA and Matt and I are both looking forward to trying it out. I really hope we like it!
~ these chips are my jam. I mean seriously - they're amazing and totally satisfy my chip craving when we're trying to eat clean. They are only 3 ingredients - sweet potato, coconut oil, and sea salt. So what are you doing? Go to the grocery store now and get yourself some!!! (Matt found them at Wegmans.)
~ I have so many blog drafts in my drafts folder and just never get around to finishing them up and posting them. I actually have some good ones in there, too, so I have to get around to finishing them!
~ I made a Shutterfly book of Camden's first year (hooray for coupons for free books!) and recently got it in the mail. It was a labor of love - with lots of pictures and not much else - but I'm so glad I did it. He loves looking through it and pointing himself out and all his people (mama, dada, nana, papa, mimi, pops, cousins, etc, etc.) Not to mention, I love looking through it - those early days seem so long ago (I forget how tiny he was!!!) It's so great to flip through it and remember the moment each picture was taken. Such a great keepsake (especially since I'm terrible at keeping his baby book up to date...oops!)
~ that I still need to print off all of the monthly updates I did on here and put them in his baby book. Since I am so terrible at updating his book, I'm glad I continued doing updates here on the blog so I have at least those to include. I love going back and reading what life was like each month.
~ I regret not weaning Camden earlier. Like seriously, I'm pretty positive he'll never self wean. And at this point, when he sees me, all he wants to do is nurse, especially if he's tired or not feeling well (which I totally get and know it's totally normal.) On one hand I love it. I love that bonding time. I love being able to comfort him like no one else can. But he is almost 16 months old. He's getting big - too big. And it's at the point that if I'm around no one else can comfort him, which can be very frustrating for all of us involved. So I'm not sure what to do. I really wanted to keep nursing him until we got back from vacation/through winter but I don't know if I can hold out that long. We shall see....
~ it's one of my most favorite times of the year. What might that be?! Umm - hello...Girl Scout cookies. Thin mints are my favorite (and I don't even want to admit how many boxes of cookies I bought this year.) Clearly this isn't going to help me get bathing suit for vacation - ugh! ha-ha
What do you confess?
