The boys are a size difference apart. You can clearly tell Landon is taller than Liam but Liam is thicker than Landon. They are both extra cute though.

We've had some pretty crazy weather lately. Snow one day then 70's the next. Yesterday the boys got to play outside with Uncle Matt and Daddy and enjoy the sunshine. :)

Liam said DaDa! Of course every time I try and get him to say it on video he just smiles.

We finally got some snow!! Landon was so excited.  I'm usually not very excited about the snow because I have to work no matter what but it came at a perfect time because today is a Holiday.  We got to enjoy the snow and it was just a perfect amount...not too much but enough to play in and make snow cream.  Now I have a new love for snow because it's so much fun seeing Landon get excited and want to 'play in it!' ...   :)

BabyLum is 7 Months!

Our baby is 7 months old today! He randomly sleeps through the night. He's done it about 5 times, slept from 7:30-5. Some nights he will wake 5 or 6 times and then the next night he'll sleep only waking once. I can't figure him out and we have tried everything. I'm just going to accept it and move on. He will be a walking toddler before I know it so I'm not going to stress about it. Some days at work are really hard because I am so tired but he's worth it and I can sleep another day! I've learned to go to bed sooner and that helps a lot. I do think he is getting better though, but it's still really hard to tell with him. 

He still hasn't went back to the bottle since about 4 weeks ago.  He is, however, doing better with the sippy cup and the regular cup. We have started to give him more cereal and rice so we can add more breast milk in there for him to get during the day time and that seems to be working. I do hope once he masters the sippy cup I can give him some of the breast milk I have been freezing. He still loves to nurse though and nurses on demand when I'm around pretty much all the time. I can't even count how many times he nurses during the day. He gets so excited about nursing and it's just the sweetest thing.  He probably eats around 28oz of baby food per day. He LOVES to eat and will eat about anything you give him. Sometimes I can't feed him solids fast enough!

He's wearing size 3 diapers and some nine month clothes but mostly twelve month. The other night I got some PJ's out of Landon's drawer and put them on Liam and they fit. So yeah, that was my sign to go through the boys clothes and organize them. 

He still loves to jump.  He's learned to get a running start on the doorway jumper and make himself swing back.  It's so funny to watch..I need to get a video.  He's sitting up by himself.  He can hold himself up when he stands next to something for just a bit.  He can get up on his arms but won't bring his knees up yet to crawl.  He sure does try to kick those legs though and will rotate all over the floor and roll this way and that way. 
He has the cutest smile ever and loves his big brother.  Landon is really starting to interact with him more too...he calls him BabyLum!

Happy Birthday, Haley.

Today is Haley's birthday..or would have been her 6th birthday. I miss that sweet girl so much. I think I expected for it to get easier or for me to feel better about her passing…kinda like when you're sick. At first you feel real bad but then as time goes by you begin to feel better. I accept that she's gone but I still do not miss her any less or feel better about it. I still have my moments where I tear up because she isn't around. She was my first baby, I don't care what anyone says. She was just such a special, gentle girl that was taken away too suddenly.

Well this morning as I was getting ready for work, all sad because I was thinking about how Haley wasn't around to celebrate her birthday, I look over and see these two guys hanging out with their daddy on the bed.

And I start to feel better :) I know it's going to continue to be hard, but I am going to try not to spend so much energy and time on being sad that she is gone, but happy that she lived.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Campbell Boys.

A LOT...and by a lot I mean all of my pictures lately have been taken with my iPhone. Call it lazy if you will, BUT I want a new camera AND have also found it much easier to upload and take pictures with my phone since it's always by my side. Liam loves my phone. Landon loves my phone. So they do a pretty good job looking at it when I want to take their picture too. HA.

This scares me.  Right after this he says, "Cut mamma's neck?"  That really scares me.


Me and my boy. 

When I'm around...this is how we are.  He's attached to me.  All. The. Time.  I don't mind though. I do hate that I don't get to spend as much time with Landon as I would like but he doesn't seem to mind too much.  He has enough other people around giving him all kinds of love and attention :)


For the past 3 weeks Liam has not drank anything while I've been gone. All 11 hours while I'm away at work. Talk about making me want to be a stay at home mom!  I'm hoping it's just a phase but beginning to think it's not.  It's really been bothering me but the doctor said you can't really make them drink. They suggessted to just start with sippy cups and that maybe he is just done with bottles. We had been trying that and it wasn't working. Well this past weekend I gave him a regular cup to drink out of...mine actually, and he drank some water! So then I let him play with the sippy cup and he drank some out of that too! I'm hoping he will get used to drinking out of it and then we can stick some BM in there and he can start drinking some of that while I'm away. Because right now he only gets BM from me when I'm around and I really wish he would get more than that. He does eat a TON of baby food though. He eats probably up to 25oz a day and might would eat more if I let him. He will also eat the same amount of baby food no matter if I am around and nursing him or not so that's good.

My birthday

I had a great last birthday in my 20's! Work gave me the day off. Liam slept pretty decent the night before. I got to spend it with my boys. Chad made me a funfetti cake, mom bought me cupcakes. I got some great gifts AND went to a movie and dinner with the husband ... KID FREE! It was awesome!
