Campbell officially became a thumb sucker this month! It's so cute and so nice that he can soothe himself without help from a paci. I felt so sad for him though because when he was first trying to figure it out, he wasn't (and still isn't to be honest) too coordinated, and he had tons of scratches all over his cheeks from trying to find his mouth.
He is such a chill little guy, and makes it so easy to go out and run errands or take Izzy out on a date, go to the zoo or the botanical gardens! He just sleeps, or hangs out in his carseat, or in the Lillebaby.
We went to our first baseball game as a family of 4, and it was a blast! Cam loves all the fun new things to look at, and as always Izzy loved playing I Spy, clapping and cheering, and playing on the playground.
We celebrated another Mother's Day, and it was so great, especially with two littles to call me momma! Alex, my dad and my father in law planned a big Mothers Day dinner with both sides of the family, and all the men cooked all the moms dinner and it was a blast! New Mother's Day tradition?!
The very next weekend we had everyone over again to bless Cam. It was low key, we blessed him at home, and the blessing was so sweet. We all felt very loved and supported and I'm grateful for all the family and friends we have in our lives who help raise, nurture, and love our children.
Right after the blessing, my mom, the kids and I packed up and headed to the airport to go to Disneyland for Izzy's birthday! The kiddos did amazing on the flight, and we zonked out at our hotel, ready to hit up Dland bright and early! We had a great hotel that was less that .2 miles from the entrance, and we got through those magical gates right at 9am. We snagged a picture with floral Mickey and then headed to Pooh Bear. Izzy had been to Disneyland 2 times before this, and the chick knew what she wanted to do! I let her lead the way since this trip was 100% for her. We rode Pooh bear 3 times in a row, and then met the characters, which she loved. We rode all the rides she wanted, ate churros and got bubbles. We saw the parade, shopped and even though it was pretty hot and crowded, i'd say we had a great time!
California Adventures was the next day, and it did not disappoint. We got our fast passes for world of color, rode Midway mania at least 4 times, rode Ariel, saw the Frozen show, rode rides in Cars Land, ate yummy new foods and threw a few tantrums for good measure. Even though more tears were shed than I'd like to admit, I'm still so glad we were able to have this last little trip to Disney while Iz was still free!
Cam clearly loved his first time at the Happiest Place on Earth, as he was comfortable enough to sleep his way through most of it <3
By the end of the month it was time for the LAKE! Cam is in love with the boat... so long as it's moving! If we are stopped he fusses and cries, but the minute we start driving he is content as can be, and usually ends up taking a nap. We spent a week with my family and cousins on a house boat at Lake Powell and it was a wonderful time, Izzy and cam got non stop attention and love, I got to take naps in the sun, we played endless amounts of Mario Kart on the Wii, we surfed and cliff jumped and explored canyons and ate tasty food! It was so nice to be with family, out of cell phone range, spending time in one of my favorite places on this earth! Big thanks to my mom and dad for arranging the whole thing!
I'm in love with my sweet son. He's such a blessing and I cannot imagine my life without him.
