Happy 2nd Birthday Camden!

Our big boy Camden is now 2! If you ask him though, he will insist that he is still our baby and not a big boy (although today I did get him to admit he is a big baby ;) ).

We went to Cornbelly's, Thanksgiving Point's fall festival, to celebrate his birthday.

He loved riding in the little tractors, even though his face doesn't show it. He tends to be very observant and focused on the moment when he really enjoys things and thus doesn't really look all that happy, but he liked it. Just like the giant slide. I wasn't going to let him go because a sign said no lap riders, but Grandpa saw other people taking their kids on laps and decided to take Camden. We got to the bottom and his face was wide eyed so I figured he had gotten scared (he is our most cautious child and gets scared easily). But then he asked to go again! So we took him again.

Not really sure he knew what the corn maze was all about. He did realize the plants were growing corn though- he loves corn on the cob.

Camden spotted the tractor pretty soon after we came in and said, "tractor, tractor!" He was really excited to see all the tractors. His vocabulary has really taken off in the past few months. I'm sure it helps that he has Julia and especially Micah (they are rarely apart) to converse with. I can understand most of what he says and he can usually has the vocabulary to get across what he wants. Thankfully, because he really knows what he wants and does not give up easily to get it.

 Trying to figure out what these minion things are.

Earlier in the week, on his actual birthday we celebrated by blowing out candles over brownies (everyone here likes it better than cake) and opening a couple birthday presents. Now every new thing he sees in the house he says, "It's me (mine), for my happy birthday!"

 He got a collection of stories about trains, trucks, and things that move that he loves. Micah loves it too. So much that that night he took it to bed with him and couldn't sleep because he kept coming out and asking me to read him a book. Later I heard him downstairs and found him playing with Camden's other new presents at 11:00 pm.

 Camden's other present, a toy workbench and tools. The boys love it. They'll sometimes take the tools outside and pretend they are building their playhouse outside while the real construction workers pound away on the new houses being built near our house.
