Aunt Kimberly Visits

Kimberly took the weekend to come visit us here in Amarillo. We had such a great time with her! We played, went to a living nativity in town, went to dinner, and just hung out. Camden loves his aunt KK!

Cliff raked the leaves outside on Friday. We went out to help him bag them up and we had to take some pictures with Camden. He wasn't too sure about the big pile! Ha!

8 months old

Camden is 8 months old this week and boy has it been a busy week for this growing baby. He is now officially crawling! I haven't caught it on camera yet because every time I try he sits back up and looks at me. He has two more teeth coming in making that a grand total of 8 teeth. And he has his first temperature today. Not sure what is going on with him. It spiked to 103 last night and this morning it is between 99 and 100. I have a call in to the doc to see if I need to bring him in or not.

Last weekend we went with our Sunday school class to Glorieta in New Mexico to our church's lodge there. We had a great time getting to know everyone more and mostly watching babies play! They were so cute together. :)

7 mo old

My baby is 7 months old! Wow time is flying wayyyy too fast. :) Camden is trying to crawl! He has two more teeth and I am pretty sure the other two will be coming soon. He is talking so much too. He has got Mama down! Anytime he is unhappy we hear, Mama! Mama! Mama! He also says Dada, Baba, and is trying lots of other noises with his mouth. He is a great sleeper from about 7:30 to 6am. (Early! But it is nice to have a few hours of quiet around the house at night.) I'm not looking forward to time change this weekend! I am so very thankful for this happy, sweet baby!

HPU Homecoming

Last weekend we took a "mini vacation" to Brownwood for HPU homecoming. What a weekend!! We left Thursday morning and stayed through lunch on Sunday. The weekend was packed full of friends and family. It sort of turned in to a bit of a family reunion as well as a reunion with HPU friends and FBC friends. Church Sunday was soooo good! It was fun to see the kids all grown, we felt so very loved by everyone. I didn't take very many pictures because we were just having fun being with people, but you can see Camden had fun seeing our old home where it all began. :) We sure had fun showing him around!


Cliff had to go to Houston Tuesday and Wednesday to do a funeral for a Cary family friend that passed away. It was his first funeral and it sounds like God really used Cliff to bring comfort to this family and to share the Gospel as well. I am so thankful for my brave husband!

While he was out of town Camden and I got a little bored on Tuesday night before bed. After his bath we went outside for a little nude baby photo session. :) And O MY GOODNESS! I got some of the sweetest pictures! I think you will agree. Ha! Camden had a ball hanging out in his birthday suit on this beautiful cool evening. He kept cracking up laughing!

Camden Pulls to Stand

6 months!

Our sweet boy is 6 months old! We went to the doc yesterday. He got four shots but cried for only about 10 seconds! The nurse who pokes him is just awesome, so quick and calm. He is 18lbs 4oz and 28.5in. Still in 97th percentile for length and moving up to the 60s in weight. We styarted baby food yesterday too. I made sweet potatos and apples yesterday for him. He's been gnawing on apples for a couple of weeks and just loves them! I think he's a fan of the sweet potatos too because he ate them up. It is just so much fun being Camden's Momma. :) We are both growing up together in so many ways!

In Other News

Below are just some fun pictures I've taken lately. Camden will be six months old next week and is growing so quickly! He's just a ball of energy and smiles. :)

This is little Harper. She stays with Camden and I a few hours every day. She's such a little doll! She's almost 2 months old and pretty much, eat sleeps and wiggles most of the time. :) I am sure these two will become such good friends over the next year!

Isn't she a cutie! Look at that poofy hair on top!

And here is Camden being absolutely adorable! He's such a ham. He is most content when he has someone down on the floor with him talking and playing with him! It is hard to get stuff done around here because we have too much fun singing songs and playing with toys.

And, o my goodness! I just love this picture. It is probably the best one we have of Cliff and Camden. Aren't they both just the most precious things you've ever seen! They matched this morning so I had to steal a picture before Cliff left for work.

R&R at the Land

Last weekend we enjoyed a couple of days out at the land with Cliff and Debbie. We had such a relaxing time enjoying the beauty of our surroundings. Camden did so good on the almost 6 hour trip there! We even got to have lunch with our friends Daniel, Katie and Duke in Abilene.

Camden took his first jeep ride around the land, we saw bales of hay, lots of grasshoppers, two horses and beautiful sunsets! You can see he had fun with his Dado and Honey too!

Sleepy Baby!

A must see if you are a grandparent, aunt or uncle! Camden had had a busy day and just could not keep his eyes open.

Camden is 5 months old!!

I tried to post this several times over the last week but blogger was being dumb and wouldn't let me. Last week Leigh and the girls came to visit us in Amarillo! We had a blast playing at the house, doing Discovery Center, and all kinds of other fun stuff. It was so good to have family in town. :)

Camden also turned 5 months old on Sunday. I think I say this every month, but he is so much fun!! He is sitting up by himself, eating cereal, cutting his first tooth, and loves to move move move!

Sting Em Jackets! I have been waiting and waiting for Camden to grow big enough for his HPU t-shirt and now I think it is too small! Ha! He is growing so very fast!

Our best attempt at a family photo!
Below are some pictures of Lerin, Robbyn, Aleigh and Camden. They got to stand in a bubble at the Discovery Center! It is like a mini science museum for kids with all kinds of fun experiments. We also went to the park and had a picnic that day as well. We played on the playground and fed the ducks!

Bath Time

We decided to pull out Camden's duck bathtub last night, he loved it. One "feature" of this bathtub is that if you squeeze the ducks bill he quacks. Camden could care less about this fact. That lead Jessica and I to talk about how most of the things that are added to baby toys, safety devices, and everything else are much more for the parents than the kids. All the "extras" are just added so they can charge more and keep parents entertained.

Camden Eating Cereal

Below is a video of Camden eating his rice cereal tonight. It is so fun to see what new thing he will figure out or get to do each day. I am not exactly sure how much he actually swallowed, but he had a great time. -Cliff

Guess what??...

...Camden is rolling over!!

Yesterday he rolled over from his tummy to his back four times. We have been working on this for weeks and I knew he was very close. He would turn circles on the floor reaching for toys but hadn't technically rolled over. (At Mom and Dad's house he had rolled over on the couch but he had a little help from gravity since the couch was slightly sloped.) Cliff and I had extended session in Camden's class on Sunday. Cliff wasn't in there but for the last few minutes of class. Cliff had Camden and was playing with him on the floor on his tummy in front of this other little boy who was about 2 weeks older than Camden. Camden started talking to Jackson and they were having a little conversation being so adorable together! Camden started crying at one point when Jackson made an excited squeeling sound that startled him. Ha! So this goes on for about ten minutes. I was helping with the 6 other babies in the room (we had a total of 8 babies with 3 helpers! It was a busy morning!) when Cliff softly gets my attention and says, "Jess, he rolled over!" I didn't realize what he said until he pointed to Camden and repeated himself. Camden had rolled over and I had missed it!!! I guess Camden had waited to show off for his Daddy! Later that day he rolled three more times and I got it on video. :)

Sweet Day

Our little family had a nice relaxing day today. Cliff got some good and VERY sweet Camden loving today as you can see from the pictures below. It is good having Cliff back! He will be gone again all next weekend, but we'll take what we can get. Check out the sweetness below!

4 Months Old

Before you see the 4 month pictures of Camden I included a few more of my week in Arlington. We got to spend an afternoon and evening with Dom, Gus and Aunt Lynne. It was so surreal for us to be sitting in the living room with our babies in our laps!! Check out how sweet Gus is!!!

Mom threw a party for Camden and I so that our church family from Tate Springs could meet Camden. She worked so hard and made lots of yummy stuff!! Thanks Mom for such a special day!
Dakota and I matched so we had to have a picture. :) I think we're buds now after getting to spend a week together! My beautiful neice is such a sweet girl. I love watching her and hearing her adorable voice!

And here are the pictures of Camden! He is 4 months and 1 week in these pictures. As I type this he is playing in his exersaucer having so much fun playing with the toys. He has turned himself all the way around in it! I can hardly believe how much he has grown over the last two weeks. He is trying very hard to roll over, loves reaching for everything and loves being busy! We had a long month without Cliff being around much so we are looking forward to getting in to a new normal for the fall.

Cliff had an amazing trip to Africa working with around 300 kids! I will post some pictures of his trip soon and maybe even get him to post for a change. Poor guy is having a rough time with the jet lag but is back at work today after taking a day off yesterday. He slept from about 10 to 2AM last night and was up the rest of the night until 6am when he took a short nap before work. I am praying that he is able to rest tonight!
