He is growing up...7 years old




On June 11th 2003 @ 7:06am our lives changed forever. Our twosome became a threesome and life could never have been crazier. I was so ready to be a mom. I knew I had wanted to be a mom. And on this day I became one. I did not expect motherhood to be so hard, but it was. Cameron was a clingy baby. Always wanting to be held. Always wanting to be loved (didn't mind that). But he couldn't have been more perfect. He was brought to my arms to teach me patience. A virtue that was not in my vocabulary before I had him.

He has grown into such a wonderful little guy. He dotes on his sister. They never fight only argue and Madeline usually ends up the victor in the argument which will only make Cameron that much better of a husband to some lucky girl far in the future. He is a bit of a klutz and has his meltdowns, only not as many as before. He is like a sponge when it comes to learning and soaks up anything you put in front of him to read, write, or do. He loves swimming more than anything else in the world. And if he isn't in the pool swimming he is playing Wii or watching his favorite cartoons. He has definitely taught me patience and that a kind word goes farther with him than harsh criticizing words. He does anything I ask of him and sometimes more. He will surprise his mom by making the bed sometimes, and is so proud when I notice and thank him.

We are so grateful for this little boy and life would not ever be the same without him. I hope he enjoyed his spongebob themed birthday, but I'm sure he did. This family would do anything for this little guy and he does everything for us.
