The "Stupid" Hat

Cameron calls this his "stupid" hat. I'm not sure why and I'm not sure if I'm ready for him to use the word "stupid" but it is a little bit cute. He puts it on while he rides his horse around the house.
Today while he was riding the hat fell down over his eyes so he couldn't see and he rode the horse right into the wall. Even though he was crying I couldn't help but laugh. It was so funny and he wasn't really hurt.

The Squished Toe

On Saturday night as I was taking Cameron out of the van I shut his tiny little toe in the door. It was pretty sad and I think I cried as much as he did. Luckily my parents have a friend who is Podiatrist and he took a couple radiographs for us and nothing was broken. Cameron bounces back pretty quickly. He did like the attention though and loves to tell the story about how his toe got squashed and Mommy cried.

Our Vain Little Eli

Eli loves to watch himself in the mirror. I think this is probably pretty normal but I think it is funny how Cameron loves it when people are watching him, but Eli is content to watch himself.

Bye Bye Binky

This was the good old days when Cameron loved to take naps and went to bed willingly. He loved his binky and looked forward to sleeping because that was the only time he got to have it.
Then we decided it was time to say good-bye to the binky. He was a good sport about it, he threw it in the garbage and we promised to buy him a new toy.
If only it were that easy! He loves his new Thomas the train but that doesn't stop him from bursting into tears everytime he goes down for a nap or goes to bed at night. This has been quite the traumatic experience. This Thanksgiving I am thankful to Eli for not ever taking a binky.

Out Little Man

When I put this new outfit on Cameron all of the sudden he looked so big to me! Before I know it he'll be leaving on a mission or something. I showed these pictures to my family and called it "Future Missionary" my sister said "Or Future Cameron Bird, CPA"

Happy Halloween

Eli was dressed as Tigger and Cameron was Blue from Blue's Clues. I am obviously biased but I thought they looked adorable. A woman in my ward made the Blue costume. I borrowed the other one from a friend. It was a cheap Halloween for us this year! :)

At last! On the way home from Grandma and Grandpa's house Cameron finally got to have one of his candies.
We went to a trunk-or-treat and Eli hung out in the back of my friend Lindsay's van. Richard was out of town so she watched Eli while I took Cameron around. Cameron really got the hang of things, he would say "Trick or Treat" and they would put candy in his pumpkin. He thought that was pretty neat.
