Who's Two?

I can't believe that it has been a full two years since that precious little bundle was in my tummy!
I remember that day like it were yesterday. My doctor told me that since I was 2 weeks overdue, I had to be induced the next day. So, at about this time, I went to bed knowing that I was likely experiencing my last hours ever being pregnant. I so enjoyed feeling my babies kick and turn inside me, relishing those months that I could give them the best start at life, holding them close and safe. Wondering what they would look like and what their little cries would sound like. While I always wanted my births to be spontaneous, it looked like little Miss had her own ideas about how things would go -- should've been my first indication about her personality! Thankfully, all the doctor had to do was break my water, and without further interventions, my precious baby girl was born 6 hours later . . . one of the three most amazing days of my life. Such a beautiful experience to watch your babies take their first breaths and meet them face-t0-face for the first time!And so beautiful to see your children meet each other!Camryn: free spirit, stubborn, smart, wiley, enthusiastic, energetic, fast, loud, sweet, cunning, beautiful, radiant, independent!

  • counts out loud to 10 playing hide-n-go-seek
  • says "scuz me" when she poots
  • constantly says "Me do!"
  • Very bossy! Often puts older kids in their place!
  • loves to do flips with Brother, play with stickers, sing with Mommy, eat guacamole, blueberries, and anything made mostly of sugar, read books, and play babies
  • puts herself in the naughty chair when she's having a fit
  • loves to sit on the potty but rarely produces any results
I love you, my precious girl!

Cami Chaos

Camryn loves nothing more than to irritate her big brother! She's a constant whirlwind of chaos, especially where Brandon is concerned. Whatever it takes to make him whine ...

There's nothing more blissful than snuggling with your sleeping babies, deep in dreamland, breathing matched to theirs, warm breaths on your cheek, soft hands in your own . . . a mother's heart lives for this!
