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!

hahaha, Natalie okay that is hilarious...probably not to you (well probably) but I can just picture it. Jaida is quite the little thing and so stinkin smart! Kamden gets cuter and cuter.

BTW, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! You and my sis have the same birthday, so I've been thinking about you 2 all week. I hope it's a great day for you and hopefully a little less crazy with an adventurous little it up okay!

We can't wait to see you guys in less than a month!

Love you, heath

Nat, I'm laughing....Jaida is so darling and a handful it sounds like...and Kamden can't wait to join her. Oh boy when he gets mobile!! I have experienced many "quiet" times and why is it that it is never something good happening? I love the pic of Kamden sitting up and the one of him giggling. I can just picture his little squishyness giggling so you!

I LOVE those two! What a fun combo they make. Jaida is sooo darling and smart and Kamden...well, is just Kamden, I can't get enough of him. You are such a good mom, if anyone can keep up with two active sweethearts... it's definitely you! Love you, Nat!

I had a lot of fun the other night, Jaida was a beautiful birthday girl! I have to tell you that Aisha keeps asking to go to Grandma Cookie's house--haha

I can't believe how big Kamden is! Jaida is so funny trying to help with Kam's diaper. haha. Give them hugs and kisses for me!

Dean Family said...

Oh Pickles! What a little smartie pants Jaida is! Kamden might be wearing a swim suit with a cute bow in his hair the next time she is quiet!! I love you so much and can't wait to see those darling cook kids! See you soon...

Hey Nat,

Thanks for the last message you left on my blog. It made me cry and you said some things that I really needed to hear! You must have been in tune with the spirit when you wrote it. Your little ones are so cute... and I think Jaida looks a lot like Jaxon? I can definitely see some kind of resemblance. Those quiet times are a little scary but make for great stories. Jaxon had one of those the other day, except for I heard his laugh that he does when he is doing something naughty. When I got into the room he was poking Brody in the eye. I took him and Brody to a sporting goods store today and Jaxon threw a huge fit and I had to chase him everywhere. It was so stressful, ahhh! I don't ever want to take him out in public by myself again!

Looks like you have your hands full sis! But I am sure you are amazing with your kiddos. I think we might be able to make it to the reunion this summer. Can't wait to see everyone! Love ya
