Better Late Then Never… Cape Cod 2011

As I’ve been reminded by more then a few of my family members, I usually get my Cape Cod  photos up right before Thanksgiving.  But as I was working on getting the images processed and uploaded I had a catastrophic hard drive failure.  Not only did I lose all of the work I had completed, but I thought I had lost over 3 years of files from my computer… including the photos of Camryn’s first 3 months.  I was devestated.

Luckily, after some forensic magic that would make the folks over at CSI a little jealous, we were able to restore many of my files.  The only problem is the data and details from the images were lost.  So I have tens of thousands of files I need to sort through, but at least I was able to get back these memories.

It’s going to take me a while to get the entire trip uploaded and sorted, but I was able to cherry pick some of the best pics of the bunch to help warm you up this winter.  Enjoy!

Crawl Watch 2012: Camryn Sits Up

On January 23, 2012 Camryn sat up for the first time… but no one saw it.  Sam put her down to play and when she turned around a few minutes later, Camryn was sitting up.  It was almost exactly like that movie Paranormal Activity, but completely different.

She didn’t do it again until the next day when her teachers at daycare said she had “mastered” it.  Now she’s sitting up so easily it’s like she’s been doing it forever. We know it’s only a matter of time before she’s crawling… and Bailey better watch out.

Baby Business – Camryn’s 6-Month Edition

She’s proportionate!  Yes, the one thing every parent hopes and prays for.  Camryn is officially proportionate. Weighing in at 17 lbs. 15 oz. (75th-90th percentile), spanning 26 1/4 inches (75th percentile) and with a noggin measuring in at 17 inches around (75th percentile), our little girl no longer has to worry about the other babies in day care pointing and laughing.  (Babies can be so cruel.)

So what has CeeJay been up to the last several months? Well, she’s having a great time at daycare where the teachers love her.  (If you haven’t met her yet, she’s very snugly when she’s not trying to eat your face.)  She’s sitting up on her own.  Rolling all over the house, under tables and the occasional air vent.  She loves Bailey for some unknown reason, but we’re pretty sure she’s laughing at her and not with her.  She’s worked her way from mushy green food to mushy orange food and is now working on mushy fruity food and snacks of the puffed variety.



One of her favorite toys is an Ugly Doll named Wippy but she also loves to play/eat/pull Laney’s hair.  Everyone but Laney thinks that’s hilarious, but she’s not even four yet, so her opinion doesn’t matter much right now.  Her favorite song is the ABC’s, but she has been known to enjoy a good round of Wheels on the Bus.  She’s not talking yet, but she’s getting really close to Da Da.  Either that or David Hasselhoff.  (Although I will never forgive her for the latter.)

All in all she’s doing very well and seems to be enjoying herself.  She’s a very happy baby and we are happy that she’s happy.  We’re just trying to enjoy it all while we can while also trying to contain the force of nature that is her sister.  We know once Camryn starts talking, it’s all down hill from there.
