San Francisco Trip!

This is kind of a late post, but better late than never :) So, on September 23 we headed to San Jose, CA for my cousins wedding. It was a gorgeous wedding and we had lots of fun in San Jose and San Francisco!

Surviving the Season!

It's week 3 of Bethel and week 7 of volleyball season. On top of that, we bought a house and are moving in the next month!! The goal is -- SURVIVE.

Cameron is doing really well at day care everyday. We had a bit of a problem with the A/C at Bethel, but thankfully that has now been fixed. With our record breaking hot summer, I was concerned about him hanging out at a place with a wall of windows and a broken A/C!

We bought a house in Lakewood and couldn't be more excited. We aren't thrilled to be moving this time of year, but we know we can make it happen and feel so blessed to have sold our house (without it being on the market!) and to have found a new home that we really love. We are in the final stages of purchasing, so hopefully everything will go smoothly.

Volleyball season is going great at BL. We are currently 4-0 in district and setting our goals high for another State Championship.

Here are some picture of Cameron! Lately, Cameron has been laughing a lot, grabbing his feet, staring at his hands and trying to "work" them on command, grabbing for toys, and teething! Cameron's first tooth appeared about a week ago. It is a sharp little thing! He also loves to try to talk to you and makes lots of funny noises. He's such a funny little guy!

Cameron's First Day at Bethel!

On Monday, August 29, Cameron started his first day at Bethal Early Learning Center. Bethal is the cutest school ever and the people are so nice. Currently, there are 8 babies in the class with 3 full time employees and 1 part time employee. However, right now, there are only 5 babies there, so they get tons of attention! Three of the babies haven't started yet because they have either not been born or aren't old enough to start, but their spots are reserved.

The school is only 10 minutes from Tricia's work, so luckily she can stop by to check up on Cameron anytime. Here is a picture of Cameron on his first day of "school."
Cameron was there from about 7:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. After he got home, he got some playtime, a bath, and some milk and passed out earlier than ever! It must have been quite a day for the little guy! Hopefully Cameron will make new friends and become a social butterfly from this experience.

Some Pics of Cam!

This guy loves to stand up all the time.....a sure way to get him to start screaming is to try to make him sit down. He will most likely skip crawling and go straight to walking.

We started putting Cameron at the table while we are eating to get him used to our routine.
 Some tummy time
 New jump toy
 Doesn't he look like a turkey? One of his new "things to do" is to lay on his back and grab his feet.
 Here is Cam's first meeting with a delicious plate of sushi. He would not stop staring at our food and was constantly making his hungry face
 Here he fell asleep in the car holding his favorite lion buddy

1st week of volleyball season!

The first week of volleyball season has come and gone. It was quite a busy week. Besides the long hours of practice, 6 scrimmages, and overnight bonding retreat, Bishop Lynch lost two great students in a car accident on Wednesday night. I knew one of the kids really well, so it's been really tough for everyone at school. In the meantime, Cameron had a great week with his grandparents and daddy. He has grown some hair in the past week so he is no longer bald!
Sometimes Cameron gets a hold of your fingers and almost chews them off. It makes him feel better.
 He loves his bath time!

 Look at those leg rolls!

Cameron is 4 months old!!!!

Wow! Cameron is growing up so fast and has learned lots of new things lately. Some of Cameron's favorite activities include: smiling, laughing, looking at himself in the mirror, playing in his bouncy seat, grabbing things and putting them in his mouth, drooling, and observing people. His least favorite thing is the teething pains that he has started to experience lately. Overall, he is an extremely happy baby and the joy of our lives!

These are his 4 month checkup stats-- 77% weight (16 pounds, 13 ounces) and 95% in height (26.5 inches)

Since we have been so bad at posting in the last month, here are quite a few of our favorite Cameron pictures.

Fourth of July Festivities!

We had a very busy weekend full of fun, friends, and family. One Saturday, Kelan, Bees, and Jeremy came over. This was Bees' first time to meet Cameron! After that, we had a little fun at Top Golf!
On Sunday, we took a trip up to Stonebridge Ranch with the family. There were 12 adults, 2 children, and 1 baby! They had a buffet, band, and fireworks. A perfect evening!
This is outfit #1

 Whatcha thinking about Cam?

Father's Day Celebrations!

On June 11 my cousin in California, Kristin, graduated from Cal Poly Tech so my grandpa decided to make a trip out there for the graduation and then swing by Dallas afterwards before heading back to New Jersey. My uncle, Kristin's dad, happened to have a business meeting in Dallas so he was able to come as well! It was so awesome having them both here and giving them a chance to hang out with Cameron!

Also, over the course of the week, I got to celebrate Father's Day with my dad, my step-dad, my grandpa, and my wonderful husband who got to celebrate his first Father's Day!
Here is my grandpa, "Papa," holding his great grandson!
