Closing thoughts on Cameron's 2nd year.

2 years ago today, my due date had already came and went. Little did I know that it would be 5 more days before we would meet our baby boy. Little did I know that I would spend 48 hours in active labor before we met our baby boy. And little did I know that I'd have to have a c-section in order to meet our baby boy.
These last 2 years have been so awesome. We have been blessed so much having him in our life! Oh how this boy entertains us; to say he is the light of our life would be an understatement. Jon and I spend so much time laughing at him, and with him. He's smart. And he's funny.
The other day Cameron and I were in the check out lane at Wal-Mart. He was being quiet and well behaved, but the cashier mentioned that he looked very ornery. I laughed, because he absolutely is and he gets that "look of ornery-ness" from his dad. He is so much like him and that's quite alright with me. =)
Since Cameron's switch from the crib to his toddler bed, he now gets himself out of bed in the morning, opens his door, then opens our bedroom door, yells "hi momma!!", climbs in our bed, gives me a big hug and kiss, climbs over to dad, says "hi dadda!!!" and gives him a big hug and kiss. I can't imagine a better start to the day. He is very generous with hugs and kisses, and loves to snuggle.
I can't wait for him to be a big brother. The other day we swaddled his monkey and pretended it was baby sister. He held "her", carried her, body slammed her, and even fed her milk.
Once he gets past the jealousy I think he'll have towards his new sister, I think he'll be so glad she's around. I love him so much, and it's hard to imagine loving another baby the way I love him.
Sunday, his actual day of birth, we'll be having a party for him. I can't wait!
He's about as obsessed as humanly possible with trains right now, so we're doing a train themed part. I designed these invitations, and the little logo on them will also be on a few other party items as well.
I'll definitely have (and share) a lot of pictures after the party!

Awwww, can you believe it? Two-years-old came in the blink of an eye. But it is a blessed two years.

We had a train party for Landon's 2nd birthday too! Boys and their train obsessions, lol.

But that invite is adorable! You are so creative!

Hi Leslie, thanks for stopping by, I haven't chatted with you in awhile!!! I can't believe your little boy is going to be two! I remember the day you announced your BFP on the D&R board. Time just flies by way too quickly. Happy Birthday to your little man!

Long time lurker coming out to say HI and Happy Birthday to your sweet boy. I have a huge favor to ask that I hope isn't too weird of me but how did you do those invites? They are seriously too cute!! I am doing a baby shower for my sister in law in March and I was going to do a train cake and sort of have a train/boy theme. She obviously is having a boy! I am excited! Anyways, any help you maybe able to provide me would be awesome seeing as you are so creative with that stuff! Love it! Thanks for showing us your talent! =) You can e-mail me at adindawebster @ yahoo dot com. Thanks again!
