OSU/Michigan Weekend!!!!

First a side note – Our pictures are saved to our personal computer and the internet is hooked up to my work computer, because of this I haven’t been posting as often as I would like. The reason – I like to post pictures to go along with what I write. But from now on I’m going to blog and then come back and post pictures.

What a great weekend – Camden and I “celebrated” his 1st OSU/Michigan game with Laurel, Jason, Cole and some other friends, while Brian headed down to campus to tailgate. We started the morning off by sending pic text of Camden wearing his “Poop on Michigan” shirt to some friends and family. He was so excited. He was even smiling in the picture! I’m brainwashing my child! Not only has he worn an OSU every Saturday since he was born (football season) but I made him wear this “Poop on Michigan” shirt twice last week and he made a “Stomp on Michigan” art project at daycare. He’s either going to love OSU or rebel and love Michigan! Anyway, OSU really did stomp on Michigan this year. I’ve never seen them so bad. (BTW - Abbey and Tim - we missed you!)

After the game and after we all realized Penn State was going to win their game and OSU would probably not be going to the Rose Bowl, Camden and I head home. Before bed, I changed Camden into the Penn State outfit and sent a pic text to is G-ma and G-pa Laurent with the words “Go Big Ten!”. Terri and Terry called and said it looks like I beat him before putting on the outfit. I told them actually as soon as I put it on his started pooping! HA!

On Sunday, my dad, grandma and aunt came to visit. My dad is so cute with Camden. He brought him a new outfit and book. When he gave it to me I could see he was a little teary eyed. I can tell he loves Camden so much. When he visits he doesn’t put Camden down. Even when Camden gets fussy, my dad just holds him and rocks him until he calms down. I love seeing the two of the bond. I have a cute picture that Brian took of the two of them sleeping on the couch. While my dad was holding Camden, the rest of us played Wii Bowling. All in all it was a great weekend!

Blurry cell pic but still cute!

Camden with the guys!


A lot of our friends and family have it and Brian finally talked me into it - We bought a Wii. Brian is so excited. He’s like a kid in a candy store. He called me three times the night I was supposed to get it to make sure I actually bought it! And the night after we got it, we spent the entire night moving furniture around so we would have more room to play it. The family room actually turned out great. I love the new arrangement! Anyway, our plan is to get Wii fit so we can try to get in shape. Everyone is sold out of it right now but hopefully we can get it soon. We also want to get Tiger Woods golf and the original Mario Bros. I can’t wait to plan a Wii Party!

Three Months Old...

I woke up this morning and the first thing I said to you was “Happy 3 month Birthday”. I’ve spent the day telling you how big and cute you are and how much you’ve changed. And now I’m sitting down to write you your 3 month letter and I find myself feeling a little sad. I just checked my email and I got an update from The subject of the email is “Your 3-Month-Old Baby: Newborn No More:. The article goes on to say that at 3 months you are officially an infant. WHAT?! Not a newborn? But you’re my precious little newborn. I love seeing you grow and change daily but I’m not ready for you to loose the label of Newborn.

A lot has changed over the past month. The first big change being...I started work and you started daycare. You started on a Monday and I started work on Wednesday. It’s a good thing we planned it that way because I cried Monday morning before we left the house, when we dropped you off, when I called our Grandma Ziegman and when your Grandma Laurent called to see how the day went. Now keep in mind, our Grandma Laurent called after I had already picked you up! I also cried Tuesday morning but by Wednesday I was fine. That may have been because your daddy dropped you off alone on Wednesday. Anyway, daycare is going well. You even made your 1st art project. It’s your footprint made into a ghost for Halloween!

I know I say this every month but you have grown and changed so much this past month. I had to clean out your closet again. You’re now wearing all 3-6mth clothing and even some 6-9mth and you’ve moved into size 2 diapers! Tummy time is still difficult for you but it’s getting better. You’ve also started to roll to your side while playing on your activity mat and you’re reaching for your toys. You’re also talking all the time and you even laughed for the 1st time this month. I can’t wait to hear that more often. OH! And Daddy's happy - you held you're 1st golf club!Another thing you’ve started to do this month – pull my hair. Ouch!

Other exciting things that happened this month –
- Grandma and Grandpa Laurent came to visit. Grandpa was excited because Penn State beat OSU.
- You attended your first wedding and your first baby shower.
- We went to the zoo again. We’ll be spending a lot of time there thanks to G-ma and G-pa L.
- You’re 1st Halloween – You were a pumpkin at daycare and Tigger while we handed out candy.
- We went to the pumpkin patch and daddy picked out a pumpkin for you.
- You attended your 1st hockey game. Laurel, Jason and Cole went with us.

Two Firsts in One Day...

Camden laughed for the 1st time today! Brian was playing "Tickle Monster" with him and he laughed! It was so cute. His 1st smile was for Brian and now his first laugh was too! Should I be jealous? I guess at least I've been there during these firsts! Anyway, the second first that occured today...Camden held a golf club for the first time! We're so proud!!! I think we have a future PGA player on our hands!!

Happy Halloween!

I can't remember a better Halloween. It was such a great day. It started off when I got a picture text from my two guys. When I opened it I saw Brian holding Camden who was dressed in his pumpkin outfit for daycare. What a great way to start the morning. Then in the afternoon the three of us headed to the zoo! We had so much fun! I think Camden's favorite part was the aquarium. After the zoo, we dressed Camden in his Tigger costume. ADORABLE! I know I'm a little bias but he's the cutest thing ever. We passed out candy with all of our neighbors and towards the end of the evening we all walked around the neigborhood and passing out our remaining candy. After trick-or-treat was over we ordered pizza and hung out in our neighbor's driveway for a bit. It was such a fun day.
