wrap up

I've attempted to write this blog post for the last five days or so...I'm just going to have to wrap it up and get it posted because I refuse to only post twice in the month of January! :)

Camp has always been a sweet, sweet boy, but he's getting even sweeter as he gets older. I figured I'd do a little update on the fun things he says and does these days...just so I don't forget! Camp's love language is definitely words of affirmation. He tells us all day long that he loves us, that he likes our eyes, that I'm a sweet mama, etc. His latest thing is "Mommy, I think I love you soooo much" When I ask him how he got to be so cute, he'll respond with "Because I love you so much" :)

He's becoming very interested in his baby brother. He likes to come up with names...the newest choices are Braxton, Mack, and Chance (all of which are not on our list!)  We talk about how he used to be in my tummy and now his baby brother is...a few weeks ago he said "I don't want to go back in your tummy!!" :) Today, though, he asked if he could go back in my tummy. He loves feeling his brother kick and roll around...Camp thinks it's pretty cool! He's been such a big helper helping me clean all of our baby gear. He even told me that he wants to change his baby brother's diaper. I have a feeling Camp is going to be a great big brother!!

He's always been so observant and he continues to as he gets older...Adam said he's glad that Camp has my sense of direction! We'll go somewhere only once and knows how to get there again. He'll know when it's time to turn and he'll tell me to turn on my blinker. :) He remembers the littlest details and his memory always amazes me!

He loves to listen to his kiddie music CD in the car. I'll be listening to my favorite radio show and he'll ask me to turn on his songs...I really, really don't want to, but then I realize, he won't be three forever and someday I'll wish that I had him in the back seat asking me to turn on his music...so I always do!! His favorite songs are "wheels on the bus", "shake my sillies out", "bingo", really every song is his favorite! I catch him singing them all the time! His favorite grown up song at the moment (and has been for some time) is "keep me in mind" by zac brown band.

Since Christmas he'll say "Happy Holidays!" after he says good night to us or goodbye to someone. He'll ask me "Is it not Halloween anymore?" and " Is it not Christmas time anymore?" and what holiday season it is at the moment. :) He's so excited for Valentine's and asks me almost daily if it's Valentine's Day yet...he says he wants to make cookies for his friends.

He quotes movie lines constantly...just last night as I was putting the toothpaste on his toothbrush he said, "more please, it's free right??" I thought it was hilarious and then he said that's what Mater says! :) While we lived at Yaya & Bop Bop's we watched Peter Pan about 30 times a day...Adam and I pretty much had to ban it because it was starting to realllly drive us crazy! He quotes that movie all of the time, but our favorite is when he says "Poor Nana, out there all alone". He sounds just like Michael and Adam and I think it's about the cutest thing ever so Camp says it a lot. :)

Adam and I had our conference with Camp's preschool teacher yesterday...we were so proud to hear that our little Camper is a sweet boy at school. His teacher told us we're doing something right. :) She said he's a great friend, shares, listens well and is soooo happy at school. It's so nice to hear stuff like that coming from someone not related to us! Haha!

Last week, Adam brought some plants home to plant in our back yard.
Camp put them in his Gator and Adam told him where they needed to go! 

He took his job quite seriously!

telling me to stop taking pictures of him!! :)

Friday night we enjoyed our new fire pit.

Camp loved helping his Daddy get the wood and keep the fire burning. We've been using scrap pieces of wood from our floors and it burns awesome!

Saturday night we grilled burgers...I've said it before and I'll say it again, Adam makes the best burgers!!

 I spent allllll of Saturday organizing Camp's room. I ended up throwing away two bags of toys and getting all of the baby toys out of Camp's room and into baby's room. With his toys scattered in a million places while we had to move out, it's so nice to have his room set up and his toys all ready to be played with! 

Today was Camp's first day of soccer practice...we were supposed to bring a drink and a soccer ball. 

I had one excited boy on my hands! We've been counting down the days!

He did a great job!

the hardest part was trying to remember not to pick up the ball with his hands! :) 

Camp did not want to leave soccer practice...he would have stayed out there all night! His coach was  Adam's coach when he was younger and Chandler's coach when she was in preschool! :)

When Adam got home from work today, he had lots of ducks to clean from the last weekend of duck season...Trip came over at the wrong time and got roped into cleaning the ducks as well! :) 

This boy was one happy camper hanging out with his daddy and his uncle...he came inside and told me he needed a pocket knife so he went through our silverware drawer and got a spreader to help him clean ducks.

Can't believe tomorrow is February 1st!!!


all moved in

Last Saturday we headed to the Campbell's for dinner...Camp and Avery had lots of fun playing. Camp said Avery is his favorite because she doesn't push and because she is happy. :) 

We are finally moved back in to our house! We officially moved back in on Saturday, but the final touches were finished this morning. It's now 100% finished (and beautiful) and we couldn't be happier!! Yaya, Bop Bop and Dave were a huge help getting us all moved back in since I'm not much help with the heavy lifting. :)  We are so excited to be back in, but this little buddy is probably the happiest! He sure missed his back yard and all of his toys. He's been saying "I'm so glad to be back in our house!" :)

Sweet boy got a pair of Georgia boots for his birthday and he loooooves them. He can put them on all by himself, but he usually puts them on the wrong feet...this picture was taken by Camp and I just love it.

playing with his leap pad...one of his favorite toys!

Here's a sneak peak of our new floors (and Camp running away from me while I tried to take his picture!)...we are absolutely in love. We went back and forth on what kind of wood/stain/size we wanted, but ended up going with #2 red oak with clear polyurethane. They turned out even better than we imagined. Travis Greene with Magnolia Hardwood Floors installed them and he did an amazing job...he's sooo great to work with!! We ended up changing our paint colors and we're so pleased with the way that turned out as well! We had some great people working on our house and they all did a great job...our trim carpenter was awesome, but took his time (which is a good thing!), but we joked that Yaya was paying him to go slow! :) She and Bop Bop didn't want us to leave! We are thankful that we had such a comfortable place to stay while our home was turned into a construction site!
 More photos to come soon!


first post of the new year!!

We've been a little out of our routine with the holidays and our house looking like this...

(sooo glad that laminate floor is no more!)

we're doing a few remodeling projects and our house is just a tad uninhabitable... :)

we're so thankful yaya and bop bop have agreed to put us up for a while.

After a successful morning of duck hunting...only three more weekends of duck season left! Not that I'm keeping track or anything!! :)

Yesterday, Yaya, Camp, and I headed to Wakulla Springs for a tasty lunch and a fun boat ride!

Camp had a blast!

He said seeing the alligators was his favorite...we saw lots of birds, turtles, alligators and manatees!

Me and my sweet boy...

I'm almost to my 3rd trimester (where has the time gone??) and still feeling wonderful...I'm loving being pregnant this time of year! :) Baby boy STILL doesn't have a name...we keep changing our minds and can't commit just yet. I took my glucose test last week and passed with flying colors...woo hoo!! I need to take another picture of my ever growing baby belly!!

Happy weekend!
