All We need is Time

So it seems that we survived the Canada Day long weekend along with the Fourth of July.  We also managed to take Cammie's passport photos and get her passport application admitted into the office since we will be doing some travels in September.

Cammie has been growing so fast and has had some major changes.  She's playing with all of her toys (many new ones too) a lot more and has begun to sit up a lot better all on her own.  Mostly I still have to hold her up slightly but she is doing it.  She also seems to fuss a bit more right now because she is stubborn like her mother and knows exactly what she wants and doesn't stop until she gets it.

She has however begun to accept eating a bottle from time to time.  We are 2 out of 3 so far in the last two days.  It's not good enough for me since I really wanted to have a half day off doing some volunteering at a race.  Hoping we can get better at it though.

Her sleep patterns are getting better thanks to Ginnie's talk with me, but we are still having some hiccups at night.  Last night was a nightmare.  I knew she would wake up in the middle of the night and I was insistent on not getting her.  Well I finally gave in 1 hr 50 mins later when she still hadn't shut up.  We can tell it's an attention thing, but she would not go back to sleep.  So I fed her and put her back in her bed, and well she fell asleep right away.  Ugh, the transitioning sort of isn't working yet.

Here are a few cute photos since the last post.  At least I know we've been rather busy.

Maybe I will try to add a few more if I get some more time soon.


  1. Cute! Yep, she changed a lot. Amazingly fast it seems!

  2. That little brat/stinker! Did I say that? YES. She knows good and well she can sleep through the night, and so do you. Do you need earplugs?? :) Anyway, bravo and just hang in there. It'll happen, sooner than later, I hope.

    Gotta love the pics. Do keep them coming. Must be the g'ma in me. :)

  3. She's so cute! Reading you I remember the days with my daughters! Each day something new and new discovering !!!

  4. Unbelieveably gorgeous! What a lovely little pumpkin.

  5. Love the pic of her in the purple outfit! So cute.

    You know, just when you think you can't stand the sleeping (or not sleeping!) business another minute, she'll figure it all out and then go on to something else that will challenge all of you. It's just how babies are.

  6. The first time my daughter slept all the way through the night was when we visited my parents, just the two of us. I woke up in a panic thinking something had happened to her! Yes, they do now what they can do, but she is absolutely adorable!
