One Month Old

We survived the first month! It has already gone by so fast and today she finally smiled at me! So fun!

Camryn's guilty pleasure...she sleeps SO much better like this. I wish she could always sleep like this since she will sleep for hours in this position as opposed to 20 minutes on her back. I may be a bad parent for letting her sleep like this but she just loves it!

This weekend we got to go to the Clippers game at the Staples Center. This normally wouldn't be that cool since the Clippers suck...but we were in a box! Every sporting event should be watched in a box; I am a fan of the box! Ryan's dad works for Mattel and they have a box at the Staples Center for most of the events. Why is this the first we have ever gone? I'm not sure, but we definitely plan to go to more in the future.

We got to have Ryan's cousins, Lou and Layth, come with us since they were staying a couple nights with us. This is Jake (Ryan's younger bro) with a nasty beard and cousin Lou enjoying her free hot dog!

Lou and Layth

Grandpa Smart enjoying how good Camryn was being. Look at her just look at him. She loves to study peoples faces. You can see in the background a small portion of the amount of food they had in there. Hot wings, hot dogs, salad, sandwiches, popcorn, kettle chips, chips and salsa, desserts and plenty of diet soda!

After the game we headed to Santa Monica since the traffic was so bad due to the fires that were out of control. You can see how the smoke from the fires created such a beautiful sunset. Don't worry we left before the air smelled like smoke for the baby's sake.

We had such a great time together. These two are a blast to hang out with. We walked along the pier and 3rd St Promenade, had a visual scavenger hunt-very entertaining, saw lots of crazy acts, shopped and ate delicious Pinkberry. The baby did SO well all day, but then had a HUGE melt down on the way home. We had never heard her cry like that! When I finally got her out she just wanted to be held and cuddled-poor thing! I don't blame her though, we were all SO tired after being gone 12 hours! But all in all a very fun Saturday day trip!

What a good day! It's so fun to get out with the baby. Poor Camryn meltdown but at least it didn't happen in public.'

I love her little bum when she's sleeping. I can't wait to meet her!

She's changing so fast! I can't wait to see her again and have her study my face too. The tummy sleeping is the best-too bad you can't do that anymore without feeling guilty. She looks just like you guys did sleeping on her knees. Just a little cuddle bug!

I'm glad you're not afraid of going out and doing things and having her tag along. I so wished the same thing of Owen, he LOVED being on his belly too. If only there wasn't the overwhelming fear of SIDS! Can't wait to see her!

Fun. Hey, we are having a BBQ at our house this weekend and you guys are invited. :)

I didn't think there was much change in Camryn, but the picture of her by herself on the sofa really shows how much bigger she is. Oh how I love that little girl. I'm glad you had some time with Lou and Layth, I'm so sorry I missed out. And I LOVE the picture of Camryn with Grandpa Smart. I can't get enough of your pictures, keep posting.

Lou said...

YEAH!! We made the blog--what an honor. We had such a great time with you guys. Thanks again for letting us crash at your place. I loved eating at Pei Wei with you and being stuck on the freeway due to the fires...I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the MAAAAAP!

Love you guys!

What a little doll! That first picture of her is absolutely darling! She looks like she knows what's going alert! We blog stalk a lot so we're trying to keep up with you as much as we can. Bailey loves your blog so we'll keep looking for more pictures. How fun that you were able to spend some time with Lou and Layth. I love them and between the 4 of you, I can imagine the great time you had. You've definitely had a full and exciting month!
