Ocean City 2014

A couple of weeks ago we went on our first beach vacation as a family of 3 :)
Camdyn loved it & LOVED being around all of our family for a whole week

We brought her giant beach bucket, filled it with water &  plopped it into a hole in the sand so that she could easily reach- this occupied her for hours minutes ;)
I recommend getting a Sportbrella- the thing is awesome & so spacious. It has stakes that go into the ground so it's like an umbrella turned into a half tent.
We had bought a pop up tent for Cam thinking that she would stay inside but nope that thing was way too secluded for her so the Sportbrella was perfect because she still felt like she was part of the group

She liked the ocean for the most part, she didn't like it on the days that it was -500 degrees.
Chris & I really hope that she loves the ocean as she grows up because we love it, well I love the shallow part ;)

As long as Chris is with her I think she'll love anything :)

Notice our little photo bomber in the right picture

The boardwalk was another huge success- we went almost every night & she did not get sick of it one bit.  She just loves people watching so a busy boardwalk is her sanctuary
& she loved watching her little aunt and uncle go on rides
We didn't bring her on any but mommy went on some for her ;)
Chris isn't a ride person so this will be my forte.
Chris will do the ocean & I'll do the rides :)

OH, I almost forgot to mention that we saw the world's biggest elephant- no big deal.

9 Months

Month 9 has been a crazy one that's for sure & this girl has been such a trooper.
I think we've been in the car a total of 4 days this entire month, that's like 48 hours.
So for her first milestone hit this month Cam has become a pro roadtripper :)

Her next milestone is that we are completely done nursing :(
I was excited about it, then I was sad, then I was excited again & so on
But I am now completely satisfied with where we are & so is she :)

We've started giving her REAL food & she is VERY happy about it.
The other day as I was feed her purees she was literally crying- she hates them.
She wants what we eat & she wants it ALL THE TIME.
Our girl is a little piggy

Chris has been home a lot this month & her daddy obsession has just grown even more.

Weight, Height, etc: Her 9 month appointment is this week so we'll find out then.

Diet: I'd say she drinks about 24 ounces of formula in a day- she'll usually drink 4-6 ounces at a time
Like I said, we've been shying away from the purees now & giving her real food- so far she's had pasta, waffles, bread, tortilla, mashed potatoes (I think these were her favorite), beef, chicken, cheerios, cheese (another favorite)

Sleep: I don't want to jinx myself but AMAZING. She's been sleeping through the night since the first time I stuck her in her crib. Sometimes she'll wake up & fuss a little but she just needs to find her paci & stick it back in & she's good- for this reason I stick 3 different pacis throughout her crib so she has an easier time finding one :)
Before we went down on our beach vacation I was SO nervous about how she would sleep at night in her pack and play in a new room, & of course she slept even better than at home.  I made sure to bring her music box, fan & night light so I could set up just as we do at home & I think that helped a lot. But I'm sure the sun & beach playing also tired her out quite a bit :)

Milestones: She can stand on her own! The longest she's gone was like 15 seconds
Cruising around like a pro
Finally figured her walker out & it's the cutest thing ever
Waves, not really on demand but she does it nonetheless :)
Has her two bottom teeth
Sleeping like a baby ;)
