Bumbo Chair - Week of July 21st

Although summer is flying by much too quickly, Cameron was able to enjoy the first part of the week at the lake with Jane.

Chris welcomed them home Tuesday night and Cam showed off his new trick of trying to grab his spoon while he's being fed. Apparently, he doesn't think that his parents can feed him fast enough!

Jane had to spend two nights in Chicago for work, so Grandma stayed over one night to help out- thanks so much, Grandma!! After all of the traveling, it was fun to be home for the weekend and have the family together.

Cameron has been working on sitting up more and he now has a Bumbo which supports him, but still allows him to build his upper body strength.

Over the weekend, he played in the grass with Chris and went out to dinner with his parents on Saturday- he most certainly was the best-behaved kid in the restaurant...not that anyone is biased...

1st Bonfire - Week of July 14th

For those of you who are regular Cameron bloggers, our apologies...this late entry was due to limited internet access.

It was a busy week for Cameron and his family as they welcomed relatives at the Lake Michigan cottage and spent quality time with Grandma & Grandpa Miller.
Cam seems to be getting used to everyone and had sweet smiles for cousin Steff and all of the Haroldson fam.
This week marked another first for Cameron- attending a beach bonfire and watching his first real fireworks! Although the s'mores looked very tasty, his parents decided he should wait a bit before trying that tasty treat.
Sunday was a very special day for 11-month old Cameron. On July 20th, Cameron Jackson was baptized on the beach of the Lake Michigan cottage, on the very spot where Chris & Jane were married just 5 years ago. He is pictured here with Chris & Jane's flower girl, Hannah.

All of Cam's relatives, his godparents, Chris & Joanne and many close friends were present for this memorable event. Cameron made his parents very proud and he didn't even cry once. It was such a perfect day!

Grandma Suzanne - Week of July 7th

The week started with Cameron's parents wondering if he was nocturnal, since he was waking up at least three times every night. However, it turns out, the drooling boy is teething. (Everything goes in his mouth!) He had a surprise visit to the doctor on Friday to be sure he didn't have an ear infection, so Cam got an unscheduled weigh in: 19.5 lbs! Such a big boy!

The weekend for very busy for Cam. He met his Grandma Suzanne and Uncle Ulysses for the very first time on Saturday. Cameron showed off his tummy time skills and rolling. Grandma Suzanne made him a special "ABC" quilt. His giggle is everyone's favorite. Chris & Jane are amazed at the little things he will find funny.

Sunday was a fun-filled day at the family cottage so lucky Cameron had two Grandmas to play with and capture his attention.

Cam can now sit on the couch with the cushion behind him. He certainly acts like he wants to crawl, but just doesn't quite have all of those moves down yet.
Jane is on vacation next week for some beach time with Cam and family!!

Happy 4th of July - Week of June 30th

Cameron's 1st Fourth did not include a fireworks display, but he did spend it with his grandparents, cousins and Aunt & Uncle. The noise did not seem to bother him, but it was a little too buggy to enjoy the lights. However, Cam did have some quality bonding time with cousin, Megan.

On Saturday, Cam met some very special people that Jane used to babysit for- her Stony Lake family. Cameron took a special liking to Molly, who seemed to captivate him with her smile. He also met Katie, Ben, Julie, 'Uncle Bud & Aunt Cath' as well as many others.

The family had a little early celebration for Chris' bday which included Jane's niece, Steff, and Cam had a little taste of chocolate ice cream- yum, yum!

Sunday included a special treat- visiting on the beach with his newest cousin Maya! Maya's mom, Lisa, purchased a special beach cabana for the kids- these cousins are totally stylin! Maya's big brother, Harper, joined in the beach fun as well.

Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!!
