Loving books

Hector had an ear infection. He's acts fine but the inside of his right ear is pretty nasty. We are hoping to get it cleaned up ourselves without another visit to the vet this year but we'll see. I guess someone has to pay for the vets light bills. :)

Cami discovered books last night. We have read to her before but last night she was really into it. We read and looked at books for 40 minutes. She really likes the book that has a page full of little white lab puppies.

She was also very into the foot book. She likes the page with the clown feet. She was babbling like she was reading the page. Very Cute.
I got this great picture of her sitting on Scott's belly right after we got home from daycare. She is such a happy baby. She was telling Scott about her day and what she did with her friends.

Poop happens

Yesterday I woke up to Scott screaming, its 7:40! I'm usually dropping Cami off at daycare at 7:40 so I jump out of bed and rush to Cami's room. Ok, she breathing... I rush around the house. Woke her up, toss on a diaper and clothes, feed her a bottle and am somehow out of the house by 8:05. (yes I have oily sleep hair but could care less) Since we are so late, Scott had a scheduled presentation at 7:00 am (strange that he didn't get a call at 7 asking where he was) so he had to reschedule it for later in the day. So, I know that I'm going to pick Cami up from daycare instead of Scott so I don't take the carrier in and pick her up. She's at the age where she kind of straddles the front of you when you carry her so I wrap her blanket around her and off we go to inside.

I'm rushing around and finally put Cami in her crib. All the while telling the daycare ladies about waking up late etc. As I'm about to leave one of Cami's teacher says, "What is all over your shirt?" I look down... it's baby poop! I go to Cami's crib and she has it all down her legs, on her outfit and socks, on her blanket and crib sheet! I just looked at the ladies and we all busted out laughing. What can you do? Thankfully, Laura at work had an extra exercise shirt so I set at my desk with a skirt and Jazzercise shirt on all day. Needless to say, it was a crappy way to start the morning. :)

Happy Birthday Momma!

Happy Birthday Mom.

I totally, 100% take you for granted. Your never ending love, support, and humor are something that I crave. You are always encouraging and never judge. I love that I can have adult conversations with you women to women but also that you don't forget that I'm your daughter. You take care of me in so many ways that I never want to know a world without you in it. I'm so proud that your my momma. Always remember that you are loved.

P.S. Cami wanted me to tell you that she loves her Nana and promises to give you a big, wet, slopping kiss the next time she sees you. Hector too. :)

Super Sucker

Scott brought home this electronic super nose sucker thing he found a Walmart. I told him that I thought it was an unnecessary baby item. Y'all got any of those laying around? Yea, so I thought this was going to be another one of those things but girl let me tell you what. I'm in LOVE. Cami kind of looks at me like "why the heck are you so obsessed with my nose, lady" but I can't help it. It just sucks and sucks and suck and all the yucky keeps coming out. It's really helped her breath better and I'm not sticking that ball thingy up her nose twenty five times. Just pop the electric one in and hold it there for however long I need it for. It also plays songs to distract them but I really haven't needed to play the music because she's got this curious look on her face the entire time and just sits there.

Having a garage sale at Angela's on Sat. if anyone wants to come and buy my junk!

Cami has a new BFF. Someone at daycare you may ask... NO. One of my friends babies? No. It's the Huggies Lotion baby. Yea, that's right her BFF is a picture of a baby. She is so into this lotion bottle. I have to hand her the bottle when changing her diaper etc. because she cranks her neck back to look at the picture on the bottle and makes it very hard to diaper. She just smiles and talks to the Huggies baby. She can't get enough. I think it has something to do with the bottle being Yellow. I guess yellow is her favorite color because she's very attracted to anything or one with that color. Just some interesting tidbits about the developing personality of Miss Camille Madison Bowman. :)

Sorry for my high voice. I was a little excited! Cami rolled over twice last night. I almost got the first one but missed it by about 5 second. I just got this one of the Flip camera as she likes to be alone when attempting to roll.

Daycare going great

Yesterday was Cami first day of daycare. It went great. When I left her she was like "you can go now momma." Then when I picked her up she was so busy playing that she looked up and went right back to her toy. It kind of pulled at my heart strings that she didn't miss me but I guess I would rather have it that way then her crying when I left.

Heading up to the cabin this weekend for labor day. Its going to be hard because I started my "official" diet yesterday. Yes, Cami is 5 months old but it has taken me awhile to get back in the saddle. So, what motivated you to start up you ask?? I got Cami's 5 month pictures back and I look at LEAST 6 months pregnant. Its awful but at least its got me motivated. I'm back logging my food and even did a workout video last night! So, my goal is to get back in my regular pants by Christmas. I'll keep you updated.

The above picture is one of the pictures Jessica Cambell took of Cami about 3 weeks ago. If you remember it wasn't a good day for Cami but somehow Jessica captured some really great shots.
