So let's start with some pictures from Michigan!
We traveled to Traverse City for a few days to celebrate my Uncle Eric's wedding, and Cam made a new friend!!! Avery is the bride's granddaughter and she is such a sweetie! Cam was so happy to finally meet a baby who loves other babies as much as she does!
And by loving other babies I mean... "Here, let me steal your cups and rocks!"
All Cameron wanted to do all weekend was walk everywhere. Luckily, there were enough loving family members around to take turns following her where she wanted to go. A particular Grammie and Grandpa were extra happy to oblige their favorite munchkin.
The wedding was absolutely gorgeous! It was held at a vineyard/winery close to my Grannie's house and it was stunning! The weather was perfect too, with just a handful of raindrops right before Leanne walked down the aisle.
Big independent girl walked all the way up the hill by herself!
So beautiful! The table overlooked some of the vineyard, and it was absolute perfection! Not to mention the weather was about 30 degrees cooler than it was in Shreveport - I was calling it winter, but it felt so good!
Cammie Lee had her own seat at the table, right in between Grammie and Grandpa!!! Even though she insisted on playing musical chairs and stealing bites off of everyone's plate except her own.
My Aunt Paula was the baby whisperer for 15 minutes. We all just about fell out of our chairs when we realized she actually got Cammie to lay back and relax in her arms - Cam NEVER does that! But then she brought Cam back and told us to check her diaper, HAHAHA!!!!!
My second favorite picture of the evening... my cousin is gorgeous! I'm so glad we got to spend time together this weekend. We met her boyfriend from across the pond and wow, our fingers are crossed that we will be attending their wedding next! Wink, wink!!! No pressure!
And, my favorite picture of the night!! Heck, this might be the picture of the year! Cam finally got some real sugary goodness this weekend and ate half a slice of wedding cake. She was turning down cookies and lemon bars the day before, so I was worried she wasn't really my daughter. But she finally came to the dark side at the wedding and fell in love.
Unfortunately, my phone was put away (dead) almost the entire weekend so those are the only pics I could scrounge up from family. The wedding photographer got a ton of cute baby pictures, so hopefully I will be able to share those here when they become available!
Other than that, we've been busy with our normal weekly playdates with friends...
Love our Tuesday playdates at the park!
We also squeezed in a last few pool days at our friends' neighborhood pool. Apparently their HOA is not aware of the fact that we still have at least another month of hot summer weather here and they have closed for the season. Sad!
BFFs (and troublemakers!)
Emory hugging Cam, so sweet! Love these two.
Megan snapped this picture of Cam that just melted my heart. A rare sweet moment of my girl.
Our little ragamuffin running around before the pool in her 6 month-sized pool cover up, diaper and water shoes. It's not always a fashion show around here...
I bought a donut pan and made some baked donuts a couple weeks ago. Brice and I inhaled them, so delicious!
Cam has been into dipping her food lately. Of course, ketchup is a favorite - but she will dip whatever is available to her...
...like her potstickers into the soy sauce (that she doesn't even like the taste of).
Cammie's also into being sassy at all times now.
I have been looking for plastic animals for Cameron to play with because she's been enjoying her animal books and making all the animal sounds. I found this great Melissa & Doug barn that comes with 7 plastic animals and it's going to be a favorite. It reminds me of the old Fisher Price barn we had growing up, but the FP barn has been modernized and it's pretty cheap-o now.
We've been battling a lack of sleep from our trip and (more!) new teeth, and it hasn't been pretty. I like to snap these pictures to send to Brice at the end of the day. I intend them to say "hurry home, please!", but I'm pretty sure he reads it as "let me send one or twenty more emails".
I'll leave you with a sleeping baby picture, because you can't get enough of them!
We've got some fun weekend plans lined up over the next few weeks, and I'm planning to give potty-training a whirl at the end of the month. Cross your fingers and your toes that Cam takes to it, because I'm OVER cleaning cloth diapers and she's exhibiting lots of signs that she's ready.
