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!

Weekend Events

This weekend we took advantage of the beautiful weather in San Diego. It was 80 Degrees and sunny...just how a November should be! It was also Camryn's first night away from home. I think she loves the salt air and was very happy to spend time by the beach!
She is loving the Babybjorn! She stayed in there while we enjoyed a nachos over looking the ocean with Ryan's dad. It was nice spending time with him since he is always traveling!

Cute picture of Daddy and Daugther. Who else loves her bracelet?

Camryn also finally got her first bath since Ryan was home to help me. She was a little shocked when we first put her in and then she loved it. She was so calm in it and didn't even mind the water in her eyes.

Her little belly is getting so big! It looks so round in this picture.

(The duckie tells us if the water is too hot)

Baby Camryn's First Halloween

We were totally disappointed when we realized Camryn would be too small for any costume this year and ended up settling for a cute little onsie and beanie that was way too big! But then that morning I had the brillant idea of putting her in Nugget's old costume!
Is that not hilarious...Ryan and I were peeing our pants over how ridiculous she looked! We dressed her up for pure entertainment or some may call it torture!

It's a good thing she looked SO cute because she was the worst sleeper, it was like she knew it was Halloween and didn't want to miss anything! As you can see Nugget was feeling left out and betrayed that Camryn was wearing his costume. So we dressed him up too!

Nugget the Lobster! I tried to get a video of how fast he could get this off but we weren't fast enough...also very entertaining.

We ended up having a fun Halloween. We had our friends Dan and Heather over, ate In and Out, passed out candy to about 40 trick o' treaters (not nearly as many as last year...thank you foreclosures), ate our weight in candy that we had left over and watched a movie! I love holidays...can't wait 'til Thanksgiving now!
