Hi Everyone!!
Well, it is almost September! One week from yesterday our little boy will be 2!!! Zoey is almost 12 weeks old and is such a doll! We are finishing up the last few things with the old house up in Plainwell and then we are completely moved. Now to work on putting everything away and finding a place for things at the new house. It is going to be such a great place once we have everything organized! Right now we are still kinda living out of boxes but we make do!
The family has been fighting a bit of a cold for a week or so. I think Cameron picked it up somewhere when we were in Midland. Then it has worked its way through the rest of the family. Zoey is the last one to have gotten it and she is so miserable. I can see it in her little eyes that she doesn't feel well at all. :(
The next few weeks are going to be pretty busy! During the weeks I am working on organizing and putting things away. This next weekend (Labor Day weekend) we are getting our family pictures done on Saturday ( I will be sure to post them!) Then on Sunday we are having a small gathering at a friends house for Cameron's birthday! (With a Buzz Lightyear cake of course!!) Hopefully we will spend Labor Day getting things done around the house. Then the following weekend I am going to have a garage sale here at the new house. If all works out, the week of the 20th of September Keith will be out of town for a training seminar and I will be bringing the kids up to Midland for the week.
Hope everyone is doing well and has enjoyed their summer!

Time is flying!

Here it is, mid-August and it feels like this year is just rushing past! Cameron will be 2 in two weeks. Zoey is getting so big and my life just couldn't be sweeter!

Due to complications with our lease, we had to move AGAIN... Man I am so tired of that. We are still in the midst of the move and have some things left at the old house in Plainwell. We are now back in Kalamazoo. Much closer to Keith's work. We will be completely moved in by Sept 1st. I will post pictures of Zoey's nursery soon! Speaking of Keith's work, we have our fingers greatly crossed for a promotion that he interviewed for a week or so ago and are waiting to hear the answer....

We will not be coming to Midland for Cameron's birthday this year. We have so much going on and since it is Labor Day weekend not many people will even be in town to attend so it just doesn't make sense. We are having a small party down here at his godmother's house. Nothing big, just a cake and burgers.

Our goddaughter Kaylee turned 1 last week and she is having her birthday party this weekend! I can't believe she is 1 already. Kaylee and Zoey are exactly 10 months apart. Time sure flys!

Zoey had her 2 month appointment today. She is 10.1lbs and 22.25 inches!! She is a growing little girl!

She is full of smiles and coos, and is generally a happy happy baby. She LOVES her big brother! Whenever he comes over to her and talks to her she lights right up! He loves to give her kisses and hugs and is always making sure I don't "forget" his sissy!!

Cameron will be 2 years old in 3 weeks!! THAT I cannot believe. He is growing up sooo well. He is talking non-stop and we are starting to get him used to having a potty for him in the bathroom.

He knows his numbers 1-5, some letters, almost all of the body parts and we are currently working on colors. I can't believe how quickly he picks up on things!

Zoey is developing so fast too! She rolled over from her belly to her back at 4 weeks and has done it a few times since then. She can roll from her back to her side all the time. She practically sits up on her own!! From the way this is going she will be crawling by 6 months and walking by 9 months!! Goodness, my babies are growing sooo fast!

I am hoping to get the kids/family pictures done in the next couple of weeks, so I will post them as soon as I get them.
