Five Months Old, and TWO teeth!!

Can you see it?? (Click to enlarge)

Yes, Miss Camryn has not one, but TWO teeth. AHHH!! (Don't worry, she hasn't bitten me yet.) On Oct. 29, I was letting her chew on my finger, when I felt something in her mouth. At first I thought our neighbor's little girl had fed her a Cheerio. But no, it was a teeny, tiny little tooth. At not even 5 months old. And then a week later, out popped the one next to it!! I must admit, it is pretty much the cutest thing I've ever seen. We are working on getting better pictures of the teeth, but every time our hands get near her mouth, she sticks out her tongue.

Ok, so this is kind of a weird picture, but I was peeking on Cam a few minutes after I put her down for a nap, and this is what I saw. Hahah... she was just hanging out in her crib, feet in the air, chatting away. I loved it!!
This little lady loves to read her Princess and Fairy books!!

I love how she is looking at me like, "Uhh... Can I help you with something?"

Cam's Five Month Highlights:

*Blowing raspberries. We have a lot of fun with that one.

*Rolling from back to tummy (I have a video of this, but the computer crashed while I was uploading it, so we'll do videos another time.). She does this all the time---even during a diaper change!

*She softly smacks her lips. Kind of like a fish. It's cute.

*She twirls my hair in her fingers while I feed her. (Sweetest thing you'll never see!)

*She loves Baby Mozart. As soon as the little caterpillar comes across the screen, she flashes it the biggest smile!!!

*She is working on sitting up. We practice on our bed so the landing is a little softer.

*She loves brushing her teeth.

*She puts everything in her mouth.

*She is not so much fun at church. Not terrible by any means, but we usually have to wake her up from a morning nap for our 10am church, and then she is awake until mid Sunday School, where she sometimes falls asleep, and then.... the STUPID BELL rings to signal the end of class and she is wide awake and hungry. Which means we make it to about 15 mins of Relief Society before I have to go feed (and usually change) her. Getting us back for the last 10 minutes. AHHH. **Don't get me started on the irreverence of bells at church. I didn't grow up with it, and think it is ridiculous. Set a timer on your watch or phone if you tend to run over with your lessons!!!**

*She still loves bath time. (And doesn't even cry or fuss when we get water in her eyes. We let some fall in her eyes when we rinse her hair so she gets used to it... we aren't raising a wuss!)

*She HATES homemade baby food, but loves it if it comes from a jar. I pureed squash for her, and she gagged a few times and then puked. So I bought Gerber squash to see if she'd take that better, and she DOWNS it. I'm thinking my food processor doesn't get it smooth enough for her. She pretty much gags on anything with texture.

*So far it seems like she prefers veggies over fruits (just like her mom!). Her favorites are carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes.

*She is generally very happy when she wakes up. As soon as she sees the person sent in to rescue her from her crib, she smiles and usually blows raspberries. (Pretty stinking cute.)

*Still won't take a bottle, so we have tried a rubber nipple sippy cup, but she just bites down on it and gets water on her shirt.

*Still naps around the clock. (REALLY loving this one!)

*Still loves the car.

*Still loves being swaddled to sleep.

*Is a big fan of her daddy when he comes home from work, but nothing beats mom. (AKA "the milk train")

*She has lots of nicknames- Bink, Binker Do, Cam, Crammen, Baby Cama-ren, Cram-ma-ren, Cramryn, Baby, Baby Girl... It's a wonder the girl actually figured out her real name and responds to it!

*She loves to chew on paper.

*She's still such a happy, mellow baby. We make 'em good I tell ya!!!

I can't believe in less than a month my baby will be half a year old!?!?!? Can someone slow down the time please??

Just Because She's Cute...

Today after church we laid her in this little floor mat while we changed out of church clothes. When we walked into her room, she was asleep with all the lights and music playing!! Tired baby!

This is Cam. These are her fingers. She eats them

She is such a happy girl.

If she is not chewing on her hands, she drools... Want to know why??? SHE HAS A TOOTH!!! (Pictures of that one eventually. She tries to lick our fingers when we attempt to get a glimpse of it.)

She likes tummy time if someone else does it with her.

This is Cam squawking.
This is Mom eating Cam's face. We do this a lot. She loves it. So do I.

Cam likes to be Super Baby.

And this is the look Cam gives us as soon as we pull the camera out. Boredom/confusion. Bye for now!


Ok, so these are not pictures of Cam in her Halloween costume. We actually didn't put her in her costume on Halloween!! (But have no fear, pictures are coming.... soon we hope!) She wore her costume the day before for the free photo shoot we won, so as soon as we get the disk, you will see the cutest little tiger in town. For now, you get our little skeleton.

This one makes me smile. She is so chatty.

Notice the gash on her cheek. She always claws at her face right before pictures. (She did it before her blessing too!)

Just being cute.

AHHH!! She's upside down!

Happy (Belated) Halloween!!
