Not So Little Any More...


It is hard to believe that in less then 6 days, my baby girl will become a big sister. She is growing up so fast and in so many ways. She is such a blessing and joy in our lives. She is so full of LOVE and PERSONALITY that there is never a dull moment in our house. The other day, I walked into her playroom and said, "Cam." She looked up at me, with her huge, brown eyes and said, "Shh Mom...I am on the phone." Oh...excuse me missy prissy. Man do I have my hands full!

BIG GIRL...
we have been working on being potty trained. She is doing really well. I am so proud of her. We are still struggling with pooping on the potty...I am up for any ideas. After she filled up her first sticker chart...full of her potty goals...we headed to Wal-Mart to pick out some surprises!
Showing off her full sticker chart... Picking out a new dress...My little girl is OBSESSED with dresses (not sure who she got that from).
She also picked out new stickers for her new chart and some pretty bling! Showing off the bling!



BIG GIRL BED...
We also moved Camden over into a big girl bed about a month ago. The transition was a lot easier then I thought it would be and she LOVES her bed. She likes to go to sleep by herself and tells us to leave and come check on her later. I think the transition was harder on me then it was for her. I loved laying with her on the couch until we feel asleep.

The big girl bed.

(this was before we got her room all put together)

Her favorite thing to do is read in her new bed! I am so excited to have a kido that loves to read. If I can't ever find her, I usually find her laying in bed with a stack of books.


Reading with her Daddy.

Her first night in her big bed!

Hard to believe that this family of three will be a family of FOUR in 6 days!

So cute!!!! Can't wait for the updates!
My only idea for you about helping with the pooping is to bribe her. I would buy small things for Sam and then put them by the toilet for him to see them. When he went, then he got to have them. Sippy cups, toys, whatever. It worked for him. Also he got a sucker when he pooped and he never gets suckers. Good luck!

Her room is too cute! And she is SO big! Karsyn has the same dress that Cam picked out....too funny! We resolved the poop issue on accident. She would ask for something (candy, Dr.Pepper, etc) and I wouldn't let her have it until she went potty. Crazy girl jumped up there and went on her own. Good luck! It will happen - I promise!

I love the big girl bed!!! I can't believe how grown up she is...but she is still absolutely beautiful!!! I know I will be SOOO sad when Clayton moves on to the big girl bed, and we aren't rocking and watching Strawberry Shortcake til she goes to sleep!!! We have a little while!!!

Ready, Ready, Ready!!
Can't believe that it's time!
Camden is growing up right before your eyes! It's amazing to see how much she has grown since we saw her a few weeks ago. We truly miss all of that while we are away!
Can't wait to see ALL of YOU and meet Miss Braelynn on Wednesday!
Love you!
