My sweet little Kamden is now 6 months, and with that comes painful teething. He has been such a good baby, so I can really tell when something is hurting him. He is getting 4 teeth at the same time. I thought his top 2 might come in before his bottom ones, but this morning one of his bottom ones broke through. They have been so swollen for about 2 weeks now...poor little guy. I hate it when they're in pain. He has also been sitting up for a couple weeks and is loving the new point of view. He absolutely loves Jaida, and lights up when she comes around. He definitely loves his momma, and isn't too fond of baby food yet. Kamden is such a joy to be around and has brought so much happiness to our family.
I have been trying to potty train Jaida for a few weeks, and she finally has it down! YAY! I am so proud of her. She has been doing so good and is even waking up dry in the morning and at naps. I started by taking her every few hours, and now she goes by herself or tells me when she needs to go. I'm so happy to only have 1 in diapers! Way to go, Jaida!

I love those squishy little legs:)
Jaida turned 2 on March 6th. This was her birthday breakfast. She requested PANCAKES! I thought it was a good choice.
We had a BIRTHDAY PARTY that night at Grandma and Grandpa Cook's house!

This is right before she blew out the candles. It took her a couple of tries because she didn't want to get too close. She started blowing from clear back there, and then mommy was smart enough to move it a little closer to her.

Sunday morning in her new birthday dress (and Elmo backpack). She looks so grown up! I can't believe it has been two years since this sweet girl came into our lives. I have loved being her mother and watching her grow.

Not much actually gets IN his mouth! Hopefully he'll start liking it better soon.

It doesn't take much to get this guy to SMILE! I love it.
Jaida loves to run...everywhere! Notice the shoes? I think she tripped soon after taking this picture. She has been trying to be so independent lately. She HATES clothes...LOVES shoes, tights, and her horse"Stripes".

BEST BUDDIES so far. I hope it stays that way all their lives. They seem to have a connection already. Jaida's first words in the morning, "Where's Kam?"

It's always fun to wear BIG socks! (and no clothes of course)

Busy kids=BUSY MOM!

The last few days I have really felt the effects of having two small kids. Jaida has always been very active, but Kamden is getting more so every day. I took this picture a couple of days ago while Jaida was doing summersaults over her bed rail and Kam was looking on wishing he could join her.
I love this little grin so much.

Jaida LOVES this backpack. She looks so grown up in it!
Jaida getting down on Kamden's level. She gets really close and says, "Hey Kam, hey Kam!"
Kamden had his 6 month check-up and weighs 19 lbs 10 oz. He's getting so fun!

These were the happening of my birthday morning...I was on the computer and I noticed that I didn't hear Jaida at the moment. About 2 minutes later, Jaida comes walking out of my room with scented lotion all over and even in her mouth. She has a thing with chapstick right now. I could smell it right away. She knew she shouldn't have been in my lotion, so she didn't complain about the taste. I knew she was dying, but she didn't say a word. I just said, "that's yucky isn't it" and "that's why we don't play with mommy's lotion". Then I hear paper being crinkled in my room and can't think of what it could be. I look in Kamden's bed and he is eating my sudoku book that used to be on my dresser. His jammies are also off and his onsie is unbuttoned. In the two minutes that Jaida was "quiet" she managed to go in my room, get in Kamden's bed, undress him, give him the book, and get into my lotion. Wow, she's FAST. Kamden was surprisingly happy as a clam, despite Jaida waking him up and apparently trying to change his diaper, because yay...yummy paper!
