What's happened in January?

I have been a very neglectful blogger...We are either not home, too busy, or just flat out exhausted.  What has happened in January?

We kept my niece Desiree over the weekend of the 14th.  Having a 2 1/2 year old running around when you aren't used to it is EXHAUSTING!  She was good though, and it's a good thing, because I was SO sick that Saturday night.  Adam got a full dose of caring for 2 kids at the same time.  He called his mom in as a reinforcement though!  I was miserable...migraine, throwing up...not a good night.  Desiree loves loving on Miss Cameron though!


Cameron is getting so big!  She is 4 months old now!  We are still having horribly fussy evenings.    It is funny though, because she thinks being undressed on the changing table is the most hilarious thing in the world!  That usually works as our instant happy button!  :)

Taken a couple of days late - but Cameron's 4 month picture!

At her 4 month appointment on January 16th, she weighed 17 pounds 10 ounces (96th percentile) and was 25 3/4 inches long (90th percentile).  She got her shots, but took them like a champion, and once she was done with her shots we had a bottle ready and it was instant happy!  Well...probably not happy, but at least she wasn't screaming at the top of her lungs!

Who is that girl looking back at me?

Just a diaper and socks while waiting on Ms. Amy!

We were given the go ahead to start cereal.  She tolerates it, but it isn't her favorite.  We have also given squash and apples a try.  She likes both of those!  Tomorrow, we are going to try some green beans!

One year ago today we found out that Bailey was going to be a big sister.  One year later, we are taking her little sister to a pediatric eye doctor to have her eyes checked out.  Our pediatrician noticed Cameron's eyes are still pretty crossed.  They wanted us to have them checked out because if we can work to correct it now, then that's probably best.  So, today, we went to the eye doctor.  Cameron has a slight astigmatism (not enough to need glasses) and her right eye is definitely crossed.  So, now we have to patch her good eye (her left) for 1-2 hours each day and try to force her right eye to work and hopefully line itself out.  We have an appointment in 3 months and if it isn't corrected, she may have to have eye surgery.

She's our little "pirate"....Arrrrrrrrgh!

We are just plugging right along!  We are staying busy, but so far, all is well!

I had to wear a patch when I was 1 for the same reason. Because of that, my lazy eye is now my stronger eye (although that's the only eye I wear a contact in now). Sounds weird but it will work out for Cameron!

I love all of the pictures of Cameron. She is so adorable! It looks like Desiree loves her cousin very much. What a sweet picture. I hope Cameron's eye path helps her right eye! I will be anxious to hear how she is tolerating the patch!
