Doesn't this look a postcard background that we photoshopped our picture onto?
I survived a Black Diamond!

Peyton is Brad's sister's husband's nephew. Got that? I'm not sure if that makes Camden & Peyton related or not, but I'm just going to call them cousins.

I love how he is more concerned with sucking his thumb rather than trying to reach out and catch himself when he started falling over!
This is the new ball popper. This toy is really cool! I'm not sure how much Camden likes it, but it entertained Brad and me for hours! The air shoots the balls up through the middle. Camden was more interested in holding the balls in with one tiny finger. Then they would all get stacked up and when he would remove his finger they would explode everywhere!
Brad is convinced that he can teach Camden to stand up and walk even though he is still not sitting up unassisted! Camden did a pretty good job of standing up until he would forget to hold on.

There's a baby in your basket!
At the St. Patrick's Day Parade downtown. Sitting in the car waiting for the parade.
Sitting in the parking lot of Finnegan's, for people watching & ambience. The 3 bagpipes men came out and played a couple of tunes and then left. Since we didn't have any irish music on hand, we jammed out to Bob Marley.

Here are more videos for your daily Camden fix. In case you are wondering why I am posting so much this week, it's because Brad is in Israel and he misses us terribly. At least that' what he says. So enjoy all the posting for the next few days, because on Friday we are going on Vacation. I will be sure to post lots of vacay pics when we come back.
So they make these things called Biter Biscuits for babies. I think they should call them slobber cookies or goo biscuits or at least melt-a-ways. It consisted of some magical consistency that caused it to dissolve into a gooey mess when it came in contact with drool. What a mess! At least I didn't have to worry about it being a potential choking hazard. This was Camden's first experience with any kind of "solid" food.
This was Camden just being cute and talking.
I read in a baby book today about a good exercise for babies to encourage them to crawl. You are supposed to lay them over a bolster (round pillow, right?) and put a favorite toy just out of reach. Then watch as they push against the floor with their feet to propel themselves forward. Sounds good in theory, right? That's not how it went at all. Camden is really good at pushing with his feet, but somehow he was moving backwards! I didn't really get that on the video (babies are so uncooperative when it comes to doing cute stuff on video) but this will give you a good idea anyway.
Oh, I fixed the videos that weren't working in the last two posts so be sure to go back and check them out. I love the one of Camden playing Peek-a-boo. That's only about half as excited as he normally gets.

Camden has learned to play peek-a-boo. He has gotten really good at it, and he thinks it is so funny! What a sweet baby!
Camden is very vocal these days. Sometimes he makes cute baby sounds, like in these videos, and sometimes he screeches, just to see how loud he can get. Camden turns his hands like this all the time. We think it looks like he is riding a motorcycle.
I've said it before and I will say it again: Camden absolutely loves to kick! Do all babies kick this much? I wonder. He started kicking in the womb, and has not stopped, yet. Here is a good example of his kicking:
This little guy is really showing his personality!

Camden really had a field day with these coasters. So fun to wave them in the air, bang them on the table & chew on them!
