7 Months Old!!





My babies are 7 months old today! Those dragging days of exhaustion are now gone and replacing them are days that go bye in the blink of an eye!

I am truly in love with these little people who wake me up and want my time. I am so thankful for their health, for their presence in my day.

It is downright adorable when they take notice of Jack and vice versa. The other day, Christian was on his tummy and Jack was doin' his thing, being crazy and Christian just started laughing. Jack noticed that he was being watched and proceeded to ham it up. Pure awesome. All Jack has to do is look at Camden and Camden grins bigger than ever! I am anxious for the days when all three boys are covered in mud, playing games and being silly...together.

Camden

Happy Boy!
Camden is growing like a weed. He is my little chunky boy I never thought I would have. He loves his bottles and food, eating pretty much any solids I give him. He goes to bed between 6-7pm and sleeps until 6-7am (although the last few mornings it's been 5:15am!!) He takes 3-4 naps a day anywhere between 35 minutes and 90 minutes. He is napping in a pack-n-play in our room.

He rolls from back to tummy, but hates it and gets stuck. He still loves his pacifier and enjoys pulling it out, and putting it back in. He has this crazy high pitched cooing sound, it's hilarious and I have got to film him one of these days! He makes the "da-da" sound and still does the humming.

He is trying to sit up, but doesn't balance well yet. He can sit for 20 seconds or so sometimes, but then tips over. No more swaddle for sleep time, just his lovey.
He will be dead silent and the moment you put Christian in front of him he starts blowing raspberries and giggling. It's so adorable. He smiles at everyone, and gives this "flirty" look. With those big blue saucers for eyes, he's irresistible! He is quite the happy baby.


Christian


It was naptime...he wasn't into taking pics
Christian is still a long and skinny thing, but he makes up for his size in other areas. He is a mover. He has started getting up on his knees and rocking. He goes backwards and gets so angry, starts jabbering away like he's telling the whole world off! He is so close to just taking off.

He and Camden sleep about the same (post on this topic to come!!) but he is still waking once a night for a feeding...ugh.
He rolls, scoots, pivots all around the floor to get to what he wants.
Today in fact, I left the boys for a moment only to return seconds later due to screaming. Christian had swiped Camden's pacifier right out of his mouth and wouldn't give it back.
I replaced the pacifier, and separated them. Walked out of the room, two seconds later, more screaming. I walked back in the room to find Christian gnawing on Camden's foot. Like, "you tattle tale! I'm going to eat your foot off now!" And man, does it hurt when he chews on you! Even with no teeth yet!!!

This kid is going to give me a run for my money.

Christian loves his solids, and we are still monitoring how much he gets since the more solids he gets, the less formula.
He is very deliberate in his grasping, and very exact. Picking up small things and such. So, I gave him some banana chunks rolled in Cheerio dust and he grabbed them right up and stuck them in his mouth (he got it in there most times) and he did great. Loved it. He is definitely further along in this area of development than his brother.

He talks non-stop "ma-ma ba-ba" etc. He is a lover. Loves to grab your face and snuggle in. But he also has stranger anxiety and if he isn't sure about you, he gives you quite the stare down.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
