Last Day of February

Wow, February has been such a busy month! Calvin has had so much going on this month with school, the Duke Law Journal, and everything else in between! I truly appreciate him and how much he takes time to spend with Camden and me, even when he has so much going on. We had a fun Valentine's Day weekend. Calvin got me these bright and beautiful flowers.

On Monday, he brought home some sugar babies for Camden and some chocolate-covered macadamia nuts for me, yum!

We got to go out on a date to Rockfish Grill at Southpoint over the weekend. It was fun to spend some time together and the food was really good!

Thank you Calvin for all you do and for working so hard! Thank you Camden for being such a sweet little boy and my little companion every day. What great Valentine's I have!

"I do reading"

I was making dinner yesterday and Camden was playing in the living room, when I heard him go into the bathroom. A minute later, he came back out to get a chair from his little table in the kitchen. I went to check on what he was doing, and this is what I found :) He had set this up all by himself. I asked him what he was doing and he said "I do reading."

I took a little video, but you can't hear him talking very well.

It's starting to warm up outside, so we've had the chance to get out and enjoy some of the nice, sunny days! We cleaned off our patio and ate some lunch outside.

On Saturday, we went over to the park to play in the sand. Camden was having too much fun to look at the camera!

When we're not outside, Camden loves to build roads with his blocks and play with his collection of cars.

We are so excited for Spring to be here! It can't come fast enough! Especially because that means Calvin will be caught up on more of his school things (he has been extremely busy!!) and we'll have a chance to go on a vacation for spring break!

It's a BOY!

You may have heard the news, but we found out yesterday that we are going to be having a baby boy! He is due on July 4th. We are all so happy and excited. Camden has been saying that he is going to have a sister, so now we are working on convincing him that it actually is going to be a brother (and that the baby is in mom's tummy and not his own). I think it will be so fun for Camden to have a brother.

I have just started to feel the baby moving, which is also really exciting. I can't wait for Calvin and Camden to be able to feel it too. I think that will help Camden understand even more.

We are just so grateful to be a family and to be able to add one more little boy. I am going to be even more outnumbered! Calvin's dad pointed out that I might begin to get a feeling of what my dad went through all those years with all girls! I love my boys and I am so happy to have another one!

Lots of Shirts!

Camden is so funny! Lately, he has been telling me he wants to wear "lots of shirts." One morning, he brought down this whole pile of shirts from his drawer and told me he wanted to wear them all. So I put an extra one on, and he said more. We kept on going until we could not put any more shirts on. The funniest thing is that he wore them all day! He did not want me to take them off. I think he had on about 6 shirts, including at least one sweatshirt.

This is the most extreme day of our "lots of shirts" but there are plenty of days that he still gets out a pile of shirts and asks to put them all on. What a funny boy!
