Playing outside (16 month update)

We had awesome weather this weekend.  Cameron still loves being outside!  

Cameron found himself the perfect walking stick for our hike through the pasture.  He loves to carry sticks.  The leaves were a bit too thick for his little legs, but we still had fun! 

Pepper loved being outside, too!

Cameron is way too busy for pictures lately so attempting to take pictures of him by myself was almost impossible.  Cameron still loves cows.  Mooing is his favorite trick.  He can show off his belly button.  He loves shoes.  His shoes, mommy's shoes, daddy's shoes, any shoes he can find!  He calls them "ishish."

Cameron has been busy learning to use a fork, too.  Sometimes he doesn't want to eat without it, other times he throws it on the floor.  I can't think of any foods that he refuses to eat, although fruit is definitely his favorite.  He's getting better at drinking out of a real cup, although I only put water in it and I usually end up wiping the floor afterwards.  But hey, at least my floor gets a little cleaner every time.  ;)

Our little boy is obsessed with Thomas the Train.  It's the only show he will sit down to watch.  I don't like to encourage a lot of TV watching, but sometimes I'll use any excuse to get a snuggle!  As soon as he hears the theme song he starts to dance, and sometimes I can get him to stop and dance if I sing it myself!

Cameron has his routine down pretty well.  When he is ready for nap time, he goes to the stairs.  When he is ready for his bath, he goes to the sink.  (Yeah, that is life without a bath tub.  He's still getting kitchen sink baths!)  He heads right to his high chair for meals, too!  When he needs a diaper change he will grab a clean diaper, so that has been helpful.  :)  

We are working on getting him to sleep better, but we haven't had a lot of success.  We've stopped nursing in the middle of the night so sometimes when he wakes up I've been able to tuck him back in and start his night time music.  Hubby has been super helpful getting up in the middle of the night to help me break Cameron's night nursing habit.  We are hopeful that we'll sleep all night again soon!
