Cameron hits 6 months and graduates!

Cameron graduated from New Mom's Group today. That group has been such a blessing to us. We have met a great group of families in our Play Group that was started through Mom's Group. It has been an opportunity to hear from other mothers what they are going through and to realize that we are not alone in what we are going through. It's been a place to laugh, and to cry, and to learn. It's given us the benefit of hearing what works for others so that we may try new things to find what works for us. It's given us the gift of being able to help other mothers with our ideas. We are sad that it had to end but I'll be back soon enough with a little brother or sister to Cam. We will carry on seeing our Play Group at least once a week.

New things going on!

Here is a picture of Cameron's first bottom tooth. Since then the other bottom tooth has appeared as well. You can often see them well while he is smiling but they are elusive when the camera's around. We've been spending our summer days with friends. We have started a three week trial of Gymboree where we play with Gymbo the clown and new friends. It's a great program that integrates games, music and sensory exploration to challenge and entertain little brains. It includes classes and play gym where you just get to do whatever you want in the gym with all of their toys. It is so much fun. At our first class Cameron had so much fun that he started clapping for the first time. Cameron will graduate from Mom's Group on Thursday and we plan on celebrating with Cam's girlfriend, Abby, her new little sister, Bella, and their mom Auntie Hilary. Abby loves to kiss Cameron and it's so cute. We have also rekindled some friendships and enjoyed getting to know our old friends again. We may start swim lessons soon.
