Sitting in the recliner in our room
Playing with some of the mini books that Nathan's coworkers gave him
Playing with the kitchen that Mimi and Granddad gave him for Christmas
He loves to help me clean
Hanging out with Nan at my parents' house
One of my favorite pictures of him that my sister took on Christmas night...Nathan and I went to the movies while my parents and sister kept Cameron and he was so excited. :)
Just hanging out at home
Play date with Addison Lewis
Aren't they so cute in their diapers?! We'll have to show this to them someday when they are in high school and still friends.
Cameron loves playing with his Dunbar cousins!
16 MONTHS OLD
I cannot believe that Cameron is 16 months old! I swear we were just celebrating his one year birthday! He gets more and more fun as each month passes by but he also shows us signs of growing up. He still has cute little baby tendencies but he also has started becoming a toddler....and yes, that includes throwing little fits when he doesn't get his way or we don't understand what he's trying to tell us. Overall, he is a very happy, mild-mannered guy and really only gets really upset when he's tired or hungry. He likes attention from people he knows....like family and friends....but he can be a little shy when meeting someone new in the beginning. He is so observant and it is always so amazing and funny to see him mirroring us. One of the funniest things he is doing right now is calling Nathan "Nathan" instead "dada"....I guess because he hears me say Nathan all of the time. He says it more like "na-na" and we couldn't figure out what he was saying until he started pointing at Nathan. :)
FOOD: He is starting to get pickier, at least with vegetables. Sometimes he'll eat veggies and sometimes he won't. You really never know. He used to love peas but lately, he won't touch them--at least at home. Daycare says he eats everything they feed him but I think it's because he sees the other kids eating. His favorites continue to be fruit, pasta, fish sticks, and chicken nuggets. His favorite snack is probably Pirate Booty. We don't give him sugar very often at all but when he has had a Nilla wafer or animal cracker, he has LOVED it. So I have a feeling he will have a sweet tooth like his mom and his Poppy....unfortunately for him.
SCHEDULE: He usually wakes up about 7ish in the morning but we let him play/lay around in his crib until 7:45 or 8. He may whine a little here and there but overall, he seems to like it. We're still following the daycare nap schedule from 12 to 2:30...he usually only sleeps until 1:30 but we leave him in his crib until 2:30. He's never been a very good napper so we're happy with 1.5 hours. He takes a bath around 7PM and goes to bed after that....I'd say he's normally asleep by 7:30.
WORDS: Mama, dada, banana (or "nana"), ball, Be be (for Bella), apple (we have fake apples on our table that he loves), car, baby (he'll point to himself), shoes, a version of brown bear (he loves the Brown Bear, Brown Bear book), bye bye, night night, all done, and all gone
FUNNY STUFF AND LOVES: He loves books...he may not always patiently wait for each page but he loves to sit in your lap and let you read while he turns the page. He has an ABC book that has a lot of pictures and he can point to most items when asked. His favorite books are Hand, Hand, Fingers Thumb and The Going to Bed Book along with Brown Bear, Brown Bear. He saw me blow drying my hair recently and ever since, he will get the blow dryer out of my drawer and try to imitate me. He likes to go get a diaper, bring it to you, and then lay down to pretend as if he's going to change his diaper (which is funny since he doesn't like diaper changes). He likes to stack up the cardboard blocks we just got and then knock them all down...guess it's the boy in him. Probably one of his favorite things to do is dance...he will do a little dance anytime he hears music. It's so cute. And one of our favorite things that he's doing is sitting in our lap to cuddle while watching "Doc McStuffins", "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" or "Bubble Guppies". :)
