Boy does Cade love his Daddy!!! He looks forward to Cameron coming home from work everyday. If he doesn't pick him up as soon as he walks in the door Cade gets very upset! He expects his daddy to take him to our bedroom and wrestle around with him on our bed. He looooves his daddy. I'm sure Connor will feel the same way as he gets older.I feel really bad because the past couple of years Cameron has not had a very great Father's Day due to me having a baby right before. This year ended up being a lot better than last year because I had a week after having Connor, with Cade I only had a few days to prepare. Next year will be a lot better Cameron, I promise (that is if you don't get me pregnant again :).
I did get to make Cameron breakfast in bed this year. This is a recipe I found off of a cooking blog, Blueberry french toast. It was pretty good, you just can't eat too much of it b/c it's so sweet. It's filled with blueberries and cream cheese. The boys also gave him gifts :) and a card. We then spent the evening with Cameron's family. It was a good day, at least I thought.
Happy Father's Day Cameron. Thank you for being such a wonderful husband, friend, and most importantly (on this day) Daddy!!! We love you!
Cade is now able to sit facing the front in a regular car seat. My sister in law, Stacie, gave us this one, thanks!!! I was in the hospital the first day he rode in his new car seat, but Cameron said Cade didn't act like he noticed a difference. He was always good in his carrier before. This is the first time I got to see him in his new seat. He mainly stared out of the window the whole time. Oh, this is also the first time I rode with both boys in the car!
Yesterday I dropped a frozen french fry on the ground and I thought it'd be funny to give to Cade and see what he does with it (I know I'm a horrible mom, giving my kid food from off the ground). This was his reaction.
And, this is what he decided to do with it. There was nothing left of the fry by the time he was done with it! haha He doesn't want to eat the food I try to feed him for meals, but a frozen fry he he no problem with! haha
Cade is growing up so fast!

I woke up around 3:25 a.m. or so(after Cade's big birthday party) and thought I really needed to go to the bathroom. I tried to put it off because I was so tired and finally I gave in and got up. As soon as I stood up my water broke! I didn't realize my water had broken because it wasn't like on tv where all of a sudden you're standing in a huge puddle, I actually just thought I peed my pants (sorry if I just made you feel uncomfortable). Anyways, after needing to go to the bathroom every few minutes I realized this wasn't normal. So, I called my mom around 4:00 and she convinced me my water had broken and told us to go to the hospital. So, we decided we should get up and get ready. I hadn't packed to go to the hospital because I was actually planning on doing that the day after Cade's birthday. I wasn't ready at all for the baby to come because I thought I still had 2 weeks and 3 days left before he came.
This is me before we went to the hospital. You can see our bags we had to pack in the background.
Cameron and I thought we still had at least a week to come up with a name for our little guy. So, we arrived at the hospital without a name for our baby. We couldn't agree on any names. We had names we each liked on our own, but didn't agree on any. My mom and sister Leah called me every few minutes, it seemed, after giving birth to see if we had come up with a name. During one of the many calls I received from my mom on Thursday we finally came up with an option. She had found a website online and named off several names from it. One name was Connor. I thought, "hmm...I actually kind of like that." So I mentioned the name to Cameron, and for the first time he didn't say no. But, he still needed to think about it. We finally decided on Gavin but only for a few minutes, he said he had buyers remorse and changed his name. Gavin was actually one of my favorite names and he said we could name him that if he could be in charge of the next boy's name, he actually did not like the name Gavin at all. So, we were back to having a nameless baby...naming boys is sooo hard! Finally he decided we would name him Connor, I made him fill out the birth certificate form and turn it in before we announced it to anyone. It was then final!!! Connor Allen Long. Allen is my dad's and grandpa's middle name.Connor getting ready to go to his new home Friday.
Cade's birthday breakfast of cottage cheese and fruit. He loved eating it all by himself, this was the 1st time he tried a spoon (it ended up on the floor).
Right: Brandon (Stacie's hubby) with the kids. Brandon and Stacie said having the 2 kids together reminded them of when their twin girls were younger. So cute :)
