3 Months...already!

My sweet baby Kamden is such an angel. He has been a huge blessing in our family and has quickly become my little buddy. At 3 months old, here are few things he is doing...He loves to nurse (can't you tell by his cheeks); smiles very easily; loves his bath; recognizes and loves his mamma; loves his big sister and daddy; babbles and coos; kicks like crazy (he's very strong); loves to look at his dangling toys; clasps his hands and tries to suck on them; and giggled for the first time the other day. I love his calm and relaxed demeanor. He doesn't demand my attention like Jaida does, so I have to make sure I give him extra special loves when I can. He just melts in my arms, and I can't stop kissing those chubby cheeks. By the way, he is over 16 pounds already. He's my little bear cub! I love this special little boy so much!
I had to get a pic of him in camo!

He likes to sit up like this on the couch. He gets a good view of everything from there.

For Thanksgiving we went up to Garret's Grandma Cook's house. She and her husband live in Island Park. She is such a neat lady and Jaida adores her. Grandma brought down some beads, and they made a necklace together. It was so cute to see how fascinated Jaida was with the project. She loved every minute of it. We all had such a good time with the family. It was beautiful up there, and the food was amazing. I ate way too much!

We had to try on the winter wardrobe. Looks like fun, huh! I always loved getting all bundled up to play outside. I hope we get some snow this year.
My sweet Jaida is such a joy to have around. She is almost 21 months now and has a mind of her own and is very independent. She is smart, funny, and very curious. She's like a sponge, so we have to watch what we say around her cuz she repeats everything we say. I love it when she wakes up in the morning and I hear, "Mommy, where are you." I guess that's her way of saying "get me out of here." She's energetic and very coordinated. The other day all she wanted to do was practice jumping on the ground. She hasn't mastered it quite yet, but I'm sure she will soon. She loves to be creative with her coloring and drawing. She knows most of her colors, shapes, and body parts. She loves animals and knows all their sounds. She even does an elk sound. It kinda sounds like the word 'elk' just said in a really high pitched voice. When she doesn't know the sound an animal makes, she just says 'moo' and then laughs. I love this little girls so much. She's a blessing to all who know her.
