Miss Camryn...

Ok, so Cam's been feeding herself for awhile now. Mostly we cut up her food, stick it on her tray, and let her go to town. But not until this week did I even CONSIDER the idea of letting her feed herself her yogurt or applesauce!! Haha. It is quite entertaining. She does a pretty good job, except she always turns the spoon upside down before she puts it in her mouth. So she drops 1/3 of it in the process. The nice thing about this self feeding is that it entertains her for a lot longer!! Here are some photos from the first time I let her feed herself applesauce:

How cute is that girl??

She was SO PROUD of herself!!

And now that another month has passed, it's time to do some Cam updates!!

Dinosaur= ahhhhh (roaring again)

Cat=(a high pitched aaaahhh)

When she's told to say bye bye, she blows kisses.
When she wants a treat, she says "thk u, thk u"
When she wants to play pat-a-cake, she does the hand gesture for "Mark it with a C" and says, "Patik, patik"
When she wants to brush her teeth she puts her index finger in her mouth like it's a toothbrush and says, "chh, chh, chh chh" Like the Raffi song.
When playing with a toy car or helicopter, she says, "Brrr brr"
Shakes head no
Drinks from a straw (FINALLY)
Loves to look at pictures of herself and say "dat" (That maybe?? No idea)
Loves to look at herself in the mirror.
Can identify eyes (ours and hers)
Loves playing peek-a-boo.
Loves swinging in her swing.

Her rage:

We have discovered that Cam has a VERY short fuse. If you take something away from her, wipe her face, try to help her *but she thinks you are trying to take something away from her* she clenches her teeth, balls up her fists, and makes a "Hhhhuuuhhhhhh" sound. We really need to video it. It is like she is Hulk baby.

Ok, that is all I can think of for now. I am so glad she's started talking now!! It is so much fun!! And also, really really nice that she can tell me what she wants for the most part!

Appointment Stats:
22.4 lbs= 55%
32" tall= 90%

Cute little Camin! She's so big. It makes me a little sad. We miss her...come down here!!! I gave Owee yogurt last week...DISASTER! That kid is messy enough with finger foods, much less yogurt and a spoon. It took me a full half hour to clean him and the highchair.

Can we trade kids for a day so I can remember what it's like to have a cute, smiley little child? Peyton is a holy terror right now. I LOVE that age that she's at. So fun! And she is a cute little walker. Peyton wants to watch that video over and over.
