Crazy Busy Boy!

I feel like it has been FOREVER since posting to my blog. Things have been crazy and hectic since we got back from the beach. The fireworks were enjoyable, but not as good as the years past. Cameron at first wasn't too sure of them this year, but halfway through he wanted to see more more more. I think he was fine just as long as he was close by to Mommy or Daddy and of course that is fine. I will take all the snuggling I can get!!
The other morning I got up and decided it would be a perfect day to fix Cameron some pancakes. Well, he LOVES chocolate chips so I decided to add a few to the Mickey Mouse head that I made. Uh yeah, I think he spent all the time picking out the chocolate chips and eating those instead of the pancake. Hmmm, lesson learned not to use chocolate chips (lol).
Look at that beautiful chocolate chip smile!! Ah, that beautiful smile warms my heart and makes everything ok. He is such a sweetheart and I am so blessed to have Cameron as my son. I really had no clue how WONDERFUL Motherhood could be and then when Cameron came along....... well, I knew that life couldn't get any better!! I love you my sweet boy.......
We were able to find some sweet corn the other night so we had grilled lemon butter chicken on the grill with some sweet corn. Yep, that is indeed one of my favorite summer time meals. The corn was still a little young, but we enjoyed it and I guess that is all that matters. Cameron LOVES corn on the cob. Yep, he really enjoys eating it like a big boy!
I am so happy that we bought this bean bag chair. We bought it last year and it has indeed been one of those items that he uses all the time!! He loves lounging in it every morning when he wakes up with some dry cereal and enjoys some cartoons. He is really into Dora the Explorer right now. He especially loves Boots and Swipper. Oh - if you could hear his Swipper imitation then you would crack up!! It is so funny......
Not only does he use his bean bag chair for lounging, but he also likes to use it for a soft place to land. Uh yeah, I caught him doing this the other night. He would climb up on his old excersaucer that we have out for the little kid that I babysit for and he stands on top of a ball that he has put in the chair of the excersaucer. Once, he stands on top then he goes FLYING TO THE BEAN BAG CHAIR!!
It literally cracks me up to see what else he comes up with, but I must say that this boy has such the imagination!! Notice that he has his eyes closed and he has lost one sock in the process of jumping (lol). Yep, I would say that if you lost a sock during the jumping process then it is probably a dangerous jump (hahahaha). Did you notice anything about these pictures? Well, Mom is not in them and running to his side. I was sitting in my chair, taking the pictures and shaking my head at the same time. Yep, I couldn't believe that he was trying something new and that he came up with it all on his own. Boys are definitely daring and this little one keeps me on my toes. Good thing that I have learned to relax over the past year!!
I guess I will leave you with this precious smile. Cameron can jump from the chairs, from the couch, jump on our bed and even wake me up in the morning and if he still shows that beautiful smile and those sparkling blue eyes.......well, he knows that he has his Mommy and Daddy wrapped pretty tight! Boys are gonna be boys and at the end of the day I sit and watch him and realize that I love him more and more everyday - even if he is ornery!!
