First excursion with Baby Cam

Marty and I have become guardians for this little angel named Bea. She's 3 and sweet as can be! We took her and Baby Cam to the Aquarium yesterday. Cameron managed to sleep the entire time. It was his first time in the Ergo. I think he likes it! Marty and I couldn't be happier or prouder parents! Cameron is our little cuddle bug, and Bea is our little helper. We love them both! Cameron loves Bea too, he'll just sit and listen to her as she talks on and on. Its really cute.

Oh and yes I am feeling 100% better after having my appendix out last week. Luckily it didn't rupture, and thankfully Marty is still off of work. We found out we were getting Bea the day after I got out of surgery. Never a dull moment around here! At least we had a couple of weeks to get used to parenthood ;o)

Little Cameron

Happy 1 week Birthday little Cameron

One week ago we received the best gift of our lives, a little baby boy, we named Cameron Edward. He was born at 3:18am on Thursday September 24th at the University of Washington Medical Center. He came after a long labor, but was perfectly healthy and calm upon arriving. When the Dr. placed him on my chest I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven. I think it was the happiest day of my life. His birth mom was incredibly strong and patient as we awaited Cameron's entry into this world. She was the calmest laboring woman I've ever seen. We then spent the next 2 days at the hospital receiving excellent care and help with breastfeeding. They gave us each our own room and we took turns sleeping and caring for little Cameron. Maranda and I ended up rooming together the second day so we could both breastfeed. Then she came home to Vashon with us to recover and allow her milk to come in. It was pure bliss bringing this little angel home.

He is a very content and happy little boy. He hardly cries and loves to be held and cuddled. I can't help but spend my every waking moment staring at him. He has the biggest almond shaped blue eyes, a very distinct nose, and tiny little lips. He's got lots of dark brown hair and a perfectly shaped head. He has long feet and toes, and his skin is a little flaky from being in the belly an extra 2 weeks. I was able to shower with him today which he just loved, feeling the warm water against his back, he almost fell asleep. It was sweet.

I will write more later and post more pictures, but right now I'm going to take a quick nap while Cameron sleeps in grandma's arms.

PS If you haven't seen it, here's some video from Cameron's first moments of life.
