we have a tooth

Dear Tooth fairy,

I just want to personally thank you for being kind this first go round. I know most people don't show much gratitude to you, unless they are asking for money, but I don't want any. Just want to thank you. And if you want to grant us this much peace the next time, we wouldn't have any objections. Actually maybe we should pay you. How much do you charge for painless teething.....I may be willing to pay? The child has been drooling since he was 3 months, but no crying, ear infections, diarrhea, night crying-nothing that anyone has warned us about. So we have one, on the bottom left. Can the next one be just as painless?

Many thanks again,
Camden's mommy

lost, but now found

I know I have been on a blogging hiatus, but I didn't know whether to continue this blog or stop blogging. I have been a bit torn with continuing due to numerous reasons. One-I have the one thing this blog was about, by baby boy. Two-this was my way to talk to others and to share my feeling about things that I was going through. It was private, and only a few people knew about it besides my fertility family (who I cherish more than anything.) Now, it is extremely public. I am not mad about others finding out about it, I just feel that somethings are better off not being common knowledge to entire world. Yes, I know I blog-and it is on the web, but there is a difference between that and every single acquaintance and friend knowing my deepest darkest feelings and emotions. Three-time-I just don't have as much time as I used to. So I have decided that I will keep it going. I will talk about my life, my son, and when it comes time-infertility. At that time, I will most likely make this blog private or create a private one. I want to keep my IF family in the loop, because they can relate, and they helped me through it the first time, I may need then to get me through it again. I value those friendships. So here we go......

Little man is getting big, he is now about 5 1/2 months, and the joy of my life. We have had a eventful summer. Camden has been to the zoo, Brewer games, Badger game, traveled all over Wisconsin, the list goes on and on. I went back to work after 12 wks, it was a very hard time for me. I always thought I would love motherhood, but I loved it even more than I thought. So I struggled for a few weeks. We found a awesome private daycare provider that gives us some flexibility. I love her, and Camden does so well with her.

A few weeks after being back to work, Camden was baptised. He cried through the entire thing until they poured water on his head, then he smiled. Now, don't most baby's hang out until they pour water over their head, then they cry. Yeah, not my baby!! He had his first haircut about the same week. YUP, a haircut. The crown of his head was about 4 1/2 inches long and stuck straight up, it had to go!! And he had a rat tail that went half way down his back. He looked like a 80's baby. Cute, but much cuter after the haircut.

We have been pretty much in line with milestones. He rolls all over the floor. He started rolling both ways at about 4 months. He has now figured out he can get places by rolling. He is a maniac in his exersaucer and jumper. In his exersaucer the grabs a hold of a toy and leans back and can pull the toy completely out of the exersaucer. Literally breaks it!! He is so incredibly strong!! We actually has to raise the height on both toys because he jumps and is so tall. He is eating cereal and oatmeal. He loves it! He gets rice cereal at night and Oatmeal in the morning. We mixed some squash in the cereal the last two nights. I haven't figured out what he really thinks. The first two bites he gags, then he is fine.

We have been a pretty happy baby for the most part. We have had two colds-nothing to serious-runny nose, little cough. We also had a 4 day flu a couple of weeks ago which was HELL! He had the diarrhea for 5 or 6 days. And he vomited the first day and the last day. I am so glad that is over!! No teeth yet, but they have to be close. This child can't drool anymore than he already does!! He is a facet!!

I will leave you with some pictures and continue to update!!!
