Camden Turns Nine

Somehow, my sweet baby boy has gone and turned 9 years old. I just can't believe it. I really don't know where these last 9 years have gone. I certainly hope the next 9 don't pass as quickly. The boys and I have spent much of today around the dining room table. Camden was told yesterday that he would be getting the much-coveted Lego Queen Anne's Revenge kit in the mail today (a result of Steve and I waiting until the last minute to go to the store and purchase it, which led to us having to order it from Amazon with overnight shipping! Camden has been asking for this particular item for at least 6 months straight, never wavering in his wish. So, we had to do what we had to do! Needless to say, Camden spent most of the morning sitting and waiting for the UPS man to arrive. This Lego kit is huge, and I estimated that it would take him 4-5 hours to put together, but here we are, 2 1/2 hours in, and he is just about finished. That boy is a Lego whiz.


Griffin deserves some sort of reward for being an awesome brother today. He has been sitting here, next to Camden, barely saying a word and watching patiently. If you know Griffin at all, then you know that it was no small feat! I am hoping to get these two outside and air them out shortly. However, Uncle Kevin tells me that the FedEx man will be arriving this afternoon with something for Cam. I don't think I will mention that to Camden though...we'll just let him be surprised when he knocks at the door!

Tonight will be Camden's favorite dinner, followed by some cake and ice cream and a family party. So glad that Nana and Papa are here to celebrate with him! Camden decided against having a "friend" party this year - - he has instead chosen to have his best friend Treyson come over for a full day of playing. I have a bunch of fun things planned for the two of them, so it should be a great day! Happy Birthday, buddy! We love you so much!

Sending love from Massachusetts as well, Camden! Sounds like you're having a great day. Happy b-day! Next year it's the big 1-0. (Heather - I hate to point this out, but I remember that when Dorothy turned 9, I did the math and realized that 1/2 of her childhood was gone! Love it while it's here!)

Aw, happy birthday Camden! What a great day he's had - and Griffin too, clearly! Love those excited smiling faces. Hope the rest of the day was wonderful too.
