Picture Dump.

We haven't been doing a lot lately but hanging around the house.  So here's a picture dump from the past week.

RIP Granddaddy.

Granddaddy with Landon - October 2009

A loving father, granddaddy, and great granddaddy passed away peacefully yesterday.  He will be missed dearly.  I'm really sad he never got to meet Liam because I know how proud he was of Landon.  

I'll never be able to look at chocolate pudding, runny grits, corn, a golden corral, or smell tobacco again without thinking of you. I Love you, Granddaddy.

More Pictures!

As Landon would say here are some more pictures of Liam! (He puts the word 'more' in front of about everything these days.  

I love his wild hair :)

First Doctors Appointment

We took Liam to his first doctor's appointment yesterday when he was one week old. He was already back to his birth weight and the doctor said he could finally be removed from light treatment. YAY!  He's doing great! 

Look back at a picture from Landon's first doctor's appointment compared to Liam's... too cute.



Here is my attempt at getting a picture of Landon kissing Liam...

He's quick.

videos of liam!

Happy :) :) :) :)

I have been soooo happy lately.  I seriously think I am the happiest I've ever been in my entire life.  I can't even describe it.  I love my little family we've created and I am soooo thankful for them.  I feel so blessed and complete.

Liam's Shower

Liam got to attend his own baby shower.  We got a lot of nice gifts and enjoyed seeing everyone.  Liam is still under light treatment so nobody was able to hold the little man but everyone did get to see him so that was nice. 

Friday, July 22, 2011


As you know, Liam decided to make his arrival 3 weeks early on July 18th.  I went to work that morning like normal.  While at work I started to feel my belly tighten quite often.  It didn't hurt but it was happening a every 2-5 minutes so I called my doctor and they thought it'd be best to come in just to get checked out.  They really didn't seem to be concerned because I wasn't feeling any pain or pressure.  Well I got to the doctor around 11:15, Chad met me there, and we waited for about 30 minutes to see the doctor.  As I was sitting on the table at the doctor's office I started to feel a little pressure...and then the pain started coming.  The doctor came in and checked me and I was  3 1/2 - 4cm dilated.  I told him I was starting to feel some pain and pressure along with the contractions and he said well it looks like a good day to have a baby!  He told us to go on over to the hospital and that he'd be over shortly to do my c-section.  We got to the hospital around 12:15 and Liam was born at 2:15!  The whole process was wonderful and amazing and I am so glad I got to experience my son coming into the world this time.  I heard his first cry and I remember every detail.  I was able to breast feed him in recovery and already feel 1,000X better than I did at this point last time with Landon.

We came home on July 21st and had to bring home light treatment for Liam to continue because he's Jaundice.  We are hoping to be able to remove him from the lights soon though.  He is improving.  We are so blessed and could not be anymore thankful for our second healthy little guy :)

21 Months!

Landon turns 21 months old today!!  I think he has changed the most in the past month.    He LOVES to talk.  Everything he says now is practically at least 2 word 'sentences'.  He says things I didn't even realize he knew how to put together.  One really cute thing he did the other day was point at one of his cheeks and said "cheek!" then pointed to his other cheek and said "more cheek!".  haha.  

He is still mostly wearing 18 month clothes, some 12 month clothes, and sleeps in 24 month PJ's.  He is wearing size 5 diapers but could probably still wear size 4.  He still LOVES his tractors, trucks and trains.   He also still really likes Toy Story.  He has started to get upset when he sees other people cry or get upset on the TV...he'll start to make this face where he almost closes his eyes and then he may or may not actually cry.  

He looooves his family and gets so excited to see everyone.  He's not afraid to leave mommy and daddy and go stay with family for a few hours/days.  He talks about everyone when they are not around and wants us to acknowledge every word he says or he will just keep on repeating the same thing over and over until you do :)  

He still isn't a great eater but he's growing and we do what we can.  He never has any issues drinking things though.  He likes to visit the house and he calls it "Mama House, Dada House, Landon House, Haley House, Lee-um House!"  He knows Liam is a baby and I think he even knows his name is Liam but I don't know if he realizes Liam is his brother or not but he does acknowledge him and has already put him into his nighttime/naptime routine of people he must kiss before he goes to bed. Liam has only been in the house for about a day now so we haven't had the chance to really see the boys interact but so far what we have seen has been mostly positive.  

Also, having Liam has made us come to realize Landon is most certainly NOT a baby AT ALL anymore and is all boy!  It's a happy but also a sad moment.  He's really growing up.....

Landon got another haircut!

He also got to play with his girlfriend Joelle :)

Liam has arrived!

Liam Michael was born on July 18, 2011 weighing 6lbs, 15oz. He was 19 and 3/4 inches long.  Both baby and mommy are doing great.  Liam is slightly Jaundice but they are thinking it should clear up soon.  He's breast feeding wonderfully and is certainly A Campbell Baby because he looks a lot like his older brother, Landon.  All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone because we weren't expecting him to come yesterday and did not have our camera.
