Well, here we are- Cameron being 13 months old- and I am just now getting around to his 12 month/1st birthday. I have been sick for about 8 weeks now and have had a few days where I thought for sure I was turning the corner just to be set back again. This last week or so I thought for sure I was pretty much better then I got hit again- but with something different than what I started with. My first sickness I assumed was COVID, because it was horrific. Turned out to be a nasty chest infection, I was never tested. Then this time, we know it’s COVID. We’d been avoiding tests but alas the husband needed one for work. Thankfully it’s been mild, miserable, but mild. The only major bummer is my mom had been visiting from AZ and so- unlucky timing – she got it too. We feel pretty badly about it. Again, we’re thankful to have symptoms that mimic a crappy cold/flu.
I’ll also add, that after 7 years of blogging I ran out of the free storage space for WordPress and was debating what to do about the blog. So for now I am paying for extra storage- but I am unsure if I will keep doing that. It wouldn’t allow me to upload posts without more storage…
Allllll that to say, we never had a party for Cameron, and we semi-celebrated just as a little family. But I was in the thick of feeling the worst. So, it’s all a fog to me. I think my big boys experienced the biggest disappointment knowing that he wasn’t having a party! Little turkeys! I think Cameron is pretty darn thrilled to be One and his learning and development is growing in leaps and bounds! It’s hilarious and fun to watch.
It’s not very often I wonder where you are in the house. Your volume levels give it away each and every time. Wherever you are it always sounds like there’s a party. And when you enter a room, typically it’s with some type of exclamation that you’re here! It’s both hilarious and loud.
We keep wondering and hoping you’ll sleep through the night consistently, but much like your oldest brother (when he was a baby), you prefer to party from around 3am-6am (give or take). And unfortunately you much prefer your dad. Or maybe he’s just stronger to hold you still to try and get you tired and back to sleep. Otherwise you wail and throw the biggest tantrum until we come and keep you company. But maybe someday soon. For now we keep our fingers crossed each night.
Your zeal and your sweetness certainly capture many hearts! We’re so lucky to have you, even in all the bleary-eyed sleepiness.
Love you always,
Cameron’s Likes: Food and snacks. All of it. Anytime, any moment. He loves bath time and he loves having someone to play with.
Cameron’s Dislikes: Being alone. Sharing the mama or his daddy. Connor has been home a lot lately and so I’d probably add myself to this list, all the boys are elated that he’s home so much and have basically made me chopped liver.
Nicknames: Monkey, Cam
Height & Weight: not a single clue. He feels heavier and taller. But who really knows! We’re still in 18m clothing.
- He went from trying to walk to full on running in a matter of days it felt like.
- Definitely not sleeping through the night. It was so so sooooo short lived that he actually slept through the night. Cannot wait for that day.
- Picking up some words (up, dada, mama, ball)
- We still only have the 8 chompers, but if so felt correctly we have 2 molars on their way in.
- So freaking smart in so many ways!
