Trip to Vegas + Three Months Old!!

***WARNING: Picture overload***

On Friday, August 1st Rich left on a 5-day river rafting trip. So instead of being all alone for 5 whole days, Cam and I decided to head down to Vegas and stay with Zockolls until Owen's blessing (Labor Day weekend).
Our first stop: Cedar City, UT. Cam was a SUPER traveler!!! She slept from our house all the way to Cedar City... a four hour drive!! We sat in the car in the parking lot of a gas station so I could feed her and get a little play time in before we hit the road again.

We stayed Friday night in St. George with the Fackrells. Mia was so cute with Cam! She wanted to hold her all the time, and was so sweet with her!! (Little Mia is so petite, I don't really know who should be holding who in this picture!!)

We made it to Vegas!!! Cute little Jack all ready for a swim!

Teeny tiny Owee. So Cute!! Not too sure about this whole 100-degree-plus weather...

Miss Cam. The girl loves to sleep.

As soon as she woke up, I changed her into this cute little number. Seriously, I want to eat her up!!

Cam thinks Owee is pretty right on about this Vegas weather.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture Lindsay took of Cam in the water!!

Please excuse my pale body. I haven't seen the sun in over a year.

We compared sizes once again. We call this one "Jack Sprat could eat no fat..." Haha... Cute little babies!

Lindsay and I got in LOTS of shopping. Poor Owen was all tuckered out. (I don't know why it is underlining my typing... SO ANNOYING!)

Cam LOVED shopping, but once again questioned the sanity of her mother bringing her to a place so hot.

Finally after two weeks, Rich came to join us!!! We were so excited to see him! Cam missed her daddy!!!

On Labor Day we hiked Mt. Charleston (partly... we didn't make it too far before we gave up and just enjoyed playing in nature) with Zockolls and their cute neighbors. I carried Cam in the baby bjorn for the first 30 mins (at most- the girl weighs over 13 lbs!) and then Rich took over the rest of the time.

Back home- (WE MISS ZOCKOLLS!!!) This picture captures a rare moment, because Camryn NEVER falls asleep and cuddles on ANYONE. Cute little bug was all tuckered out!

And now, for your viewing pleasure, Camryn is THREE MONTHS OLD!!!

Tummy time- not her favorite time of day, but she is learning to tolerate it. Usually when she gets tired of it she gets whiny and face plants into the ground.

So after she gets sick of "real" tummy time, we do it on the boppy!!

Ahhh.... Much better!!!

Tummy time is always better when Bob joins in on the fun! (Ahh stupid line!!)

Cam eats her fingers ALL DAY LONG.

Look at that big girl standing up!! (She learned this trick in Vegas... before she would just go limp when we tried to stand her up!)

Cute Cam getting mugged on. This happens all day long. Seriously. She is delicious.

Cam's Three Month highlights:

-Giggling.. It is the cutest little raspy laugh ever!

-Rolling over. But this is VERY rare. She did it a couple of times for Lindsay, but has yet to show her father this talent.

-Learned (today) to sleep in her crib instead of the swing WITHOUT ANY TEARS!! Yay!!!

-LOVES to talk to anyone who will listen. She has a really loud voice, squawks all day. (She even talked on the phone with Rich before he met up with us in Vegas! So cute- she'd listen while he talked, and then squawked back!)

-She has gotten a ton better at neck control!! Yay! No more floppy baby!

We are so in love with this little bug!!! She is such a happy baby!

She is soooo uber cute! I can't wait to see her. I love her in that swimming suit and cute owl onsie. Jack and Owen look cute as ever. I'm glad you had fun, but I'm more glad you're back. We missed you.

Lexi--I just love all the rolls on her arm! They remind me so much of Hannah when she was that age. I remember I couldn't find pajamas that would fit her because her arms were so chubby, so I had to put her in 6-12 mo PJs when she was barely 3 months.

And I love the picture of her asleep with her arms up!!

You guys are brave to do Vegas in the summer--it is so so so hot!! We were there once in summer and I swore we'd never do it again.

Glad you had fun with Lindsay and Co.! Looks like a great visit!

Tim and Sara said...

Oh my goodness, the swimsuit pictures were my favorite! I can't believe how much she's changed in just 3 months. I'm so excited for our own little girl to get here!

Adorable pictures. Glad you were in Vegas so we could have time with everyone. Keep the pics coming and YAY for Cam sleeping in her crib!

Lindsay said...

We miss you guys too!!! It was too fun...we'll have to make in an annual thing. Except maybe next year we'll be bazillionaires and we can rent a house somewhere that's not so hot...ha ha!

Little Cam is so cute!!! I LOVE the pictures of her doing tummy time on the boppy. We miss her LOTS...give her a "muah" from us!

Oh how I love her. Thanks for coming to see us. It was so good to see you and I was glad we got to meet Camryn. I love that picture of her and Mia. You seriously need to come visit soon.

Hey Lexi,
I've been blog stalking you for a while and have been too much of a ninny to comment. Camryn is adorable and I enjoy reading Lindsay's blog as well. It's fun to see how often you guys get together.
I was actually wondering about the diaper bag in one of your pictures. It's brown and green and adorable. I am having #4 and my first boy in November and am looking for a cute diaper bag. Please don't tell me you made it or I will cry because I am NOT craftsy AT ALL!!! I already tried to contact the lady who covered your car seat and she said she isn't doing it anymore. BUMMER! Anyhow, sorry for the long comment, but I'm loving reading your blog and all the fun updates on Camryn.
