Allergy testing for the little guy...all came out negative although we know he is allergic to something. He was amazing during the testing!
Nathan and I went to Hyatt Lost Pines for a few days in May as a short getaway while my mom kept Cameron at our house
PLAYING CATCH UP
I have been awful at posting to the blog...time just gets away from me. A lot has happened since my last post so I will try to write it all down as much as I can. First and most exciting is that we found out in January that we are going to have another baby in late August/early September. The actual due date is September 3 but since I have to have a C-section, it will be scheduled a week before so should be the end of August. We found out that it is another boy, which is pretty much what we expected. For some reason, I have always had the feeling that I would be a mom of two boys. :) Cameron is going to be an awesome big brother!
As for updates on Cameron, he is doing great. He is a chatterbox at home but I think he is a little reserved outside of home....which is how Nathan and I are as well. His vocabulary improves more and more and he is super observant of everything--just like his mom. He also remembers just about anything you tell him....so if you are going to bribe him with a treat to take a nap, you had better be prepared to give him that treat when he wakes up because he will remember! As for his food, he is still picky when it comes to vegetables and has become much more vocal about what he wants and doesn't want. Right now, he loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and hummus with crackers....I swear he eats both of those meals a few times a week. He still loves chicken nuggets and french fries (who doesn't?) and just about any kind of chip. He seems to have his dad's love of bread and chips and my love of sweets--which is not a good thing.
He was moved to the Early Preschool 2 class around March and had a little tough time transitioning for a couple of months. That class is a little more chaotic and the kids are rougher. We had a discussion with the school director and things seem to be getting much better...and are more organized overall. The class is helping him with potty training and we are going to be doing the 3 day method over July 4th weekend. My goal is to get him fully potty trained before the baby arrives so I don't have two in diapers!
Another exciting thing that has happened is that Nathan's parents officially moved back to Texas in March! We are so happy that Cameron will grow up with them close by and we can see them more often. We loved where they lived but it was just too far away...and it was only going to get harder for us to make the trip there each year. I grew up with my grandparents close by and as a result, I was super close to them. I could not be happier that our kids will be able to have close relationships with their grandparents too.
