Cameron: Two Months

Cameron, or Little C as I like to call him, is two months old today! It's hard to believe he's been here that long already. I seriously have a hard time remembering what life was like without him. 

He is still fairly fussy, but it's gotten a little better. As in, he only screams some of the time instead of all the time. I'm able to put him down on his play mat or have Ewan hold him for a few minutes so I'm able to go to the bathroom or do the dishes or laundry. And he smiles and coos all the time when he's not screaming, although I haven't been able to catch a smile on camera yet. He's got crazy spit up still and I go through at least two shirts a day. I gave up dairy for a bit to see if that would help but didn't notice a difference. Maybe he's just one of those kids that's a geyser? I really don't know.

He still hates the carseat and it's pretty much a given that he will scream the entire time we're going somewhere in the car. We're also still using a nipple shield but I am determined to get him off of it. I've gotten him to latch to me a couple times when he's not frantic so I'm hopeful that by the time he's three months we won't be using a shield anymore. Cameron is solidly in three month clothing so I'm curious to see how much he weighs at his appointment next week. Especially given all the stress to regain his birth weight. 

The kids adore him and are always wanting to hold him and be in his face. I feel bad for the kid because they always wake him up. Not gonna lie, I'm glad we get some quiet time just the two of us in the mornings!

What We Were Up to This Summer

Since I was able to be home with the kids most of the summer, I thought I would share some of what we were up that school has started! Honestly I will never get used to the kids starting school at the beginning of August. For someone who always started around Labor Day, it's just so weird...but I digress....

Anyway, enjoy the photo dump!

We went to several library programs...our favorite was Bubblefest.

While Ewan had a playdate, Cecily and I had an ice cream date.

And we all had a Starbucks date.

We went to several parks, but we also spent several days at our local YMCA splash pad.

Just this past week we made glue slime. The kids loved it, but I was totally grossed out!

I did my best to try to make sure they weren't stuck in the house all day everyday, but with a newborn we had plenty of days at home. Luckily Alan loves playing with PVC pipe and made them a water table and we got a pool for them to swim in some.

And Cameron was cute as usual.
