25 Months Old

Today I'm 25 months old & I had a very full & exciting weekend in celebrate the occasion! Saturday morning we headed out to Hundsader Farm for a Fall festival with Auntie Kelly, Uncle Matt, Leah & my Auntie Mel, Uncle Mike & two favorite cousins, Maddy & Mikayla.

Look at these three adorable gals I had the pleasure of spending the day with!

We had an absolute blast dancing & running around the stage as we enjoyed the country band that played.

So, what is the 25 month old version of me up to? Well, I'm enjoying my new class at school, although I tend to be a little sensitive when I get home. It also doesn't help that I'm not only opinionated but very passionate, so my emotions tend to be large.

But I have a sweet, lovable spirit & my mom & dad don't fault me for it! We've been enjoying Fall & spending more time outside, taking walks & going to the park. I still love watching Lightning McQueen, but I've also gotten into Little Einsteins, Yo Gabba Gabba & pretty much any show on Noggin. No, I'm not a TV junkie but my parents do let me watch my shows before bed (or when they need to get something done around the house!)

I utterly adore cheese, especially string cheese & also waffles, which I call wapples! It's rare though that I actually sit & eat well at mealtime. More often than not my parents end up chasing me around just to take a few bites of dinner. I'm too busy have fun to be bothered to eat!

I'm not really using the potty at home very much, although my parents do put me on it before bath time or random times on the weekend. I do use the potty much more often at school & I actually go a lot of the time - unlike when I'm at home & I basically just sit there with a huge grin on my face, push on my PP & say, TT in the toddy!

I was able to go to my very first circus show at the fest this weekend & it was pretty cool!

I love, love, love my mommy & daddy! Usually when I wake up in the morning, I stand in the corner of my crib & yell, A Mama! A Mama! Yeah, for some reason I add an A which sounds like uh where it doesn't really belong. I'm cool like that. Oh, & another thing I started doing this week is adding an A to the end of my words. For instance, when we pull onto our driveway, I shout Home-uh! And I totally blame my mom for that since her normal way of talking is basically adding uh to the end of most every word!

I was able to feed my first goat on Saturday & it was so much fun! I laughed hysterically as the goat's teeth tickled my hands as he ate. And we were able to see two baby goats that were only two days old. They were absolutely adorable & could barely even walk. I wanted to take them home with us but my mom said, No, Cam, our house is already a zoo!

And most of all I love my family & friends & I'm so thankful for all the love I receive each day!

Hamming it up for Daddy!

My daddy flew to Dallas early this morning & I'm missing him lots! When Mommy got me out of my crib today, the first thing I said when we got to the living room, was, "Daaaad-deeee!"

My mom was able to drop me off at my preschool room for the first time today. She was anticipating that I'd cry since I do most mornings since switching to a new class, but was pleased to discover that I did just fine.

Unfortunately my mom got a message on her cell this evening from my daycare, saying that I had a 101 degree temperature. She was expecting to see a sick little child when she picked me up, but I was as happy as a clam! See how happy I look?

Well, the rule at school is that you have to be fever free for 24 hours, so my mom will be taking the day off of work tomorrow! When my mom took my temperature tonight, it was only 98.9, so hopefully whatever was going on earlier today is g-o-n-e gone!

But as happy as I look in these pictures, I'm missing my daddy lots! Daddy, I hope you're having a wonderful trip, but please come home safely! I love you so much!

Weekend Happenings

We live for the weekend, and who doesn't really? Not to say we don't enjoy our Monday through Friday lives, but things are hectic so come the weekend, my parents LOVE having that extra time with little ole me!

And why wouldn't they? I'm quite funny, witty & darn good looking! So I may not be modest, but it is what it is. If you've spent any time with me, I'm sure you'd agree!

The weather this weekend has finally cooled off so we're hoping that the insane heat of summer is behind us. We took advantage of the cooler temps & I was able to cruise around on my new bike with the help of my mom.

I was even able to do some lizard watching which I love! My mom named this guy Sammy. She always has to name everything!

Saturday afternoon we headed over to Auntie Kelly & Uncle Matt's house for some college football. My handsome daddy had his hands full with us goofy tots.

Leah & I kicked back on the Lazy Boy for some R&R!

We always have such a great time together!

We crack each other up!

This evening we met up with Auntie Kelly, Uncle Matty & Leah for some ice cream & then headed to the park. What an incredibly gorgeous evening it was!

It was a fantastic weekend, but it's back to reality tomorrow! I'll be heading back to daycare after a two week hiatus when Grammy was here. Word on the street is I'll be moving up to the next room very shortly. New teachers, new friends & a bigger focus on using the potty. Although I don't see the advantage of using the potty. Hmm... pee in my diaper on a whim, whenever the urge strikes & have someone else change me or have to hold it, seek out a potty, pull down my pants, yadda, yadda. I'll probably drag my feet with potty training, but you never do know!

Love my Grammy

My grammy is flying home to Chicago as I type this & I already miss her. I had such a great visit with Grammy & was spoiled with love & affection.

I always look so forward to my grammy's visits...

She plays with me, shares her ice cream with me & makes me laugh.

I always make sure to give Grammy hugs before she lays me down for a nap, before I go to bed at night & anytime the mood strikes, really. She's always there for me!

I'm so blessed to have my grammy in my life... She's the best! I LOVE YOU, GRAMMY!!!
