And He's 8
Saturday we celebrated Camden's 8th birthday. He looks huge, right? Not sure how it happened, but he's certainly grown into a big boy, and I can't seem to stop time. (Oh, and Brian is totally responsible for this slicked back hairstyle.)
This totally cracked me up. He was SO excited about his birthday, and went and made this little sign to hang in the living room. He said his birthday wish was to have me home, but I am fairly certain it was only because he was worried there would be no cake, presents, and party if I were still in the hospital.
Excited about his first gift card.
My parents took Rory shopping to let her pick out some things for Camden, and he immediately came over and hugged her. Wish I had the camera settings right, but it's still sweet, right?
Aunt Liz kept teasing Camden that this party was for her also since we missed her birthday last month. Rory played along and took Liz one of his presents.
And still teasing - Aunt Liz wrapped up The Help for Camden so he wouldn't be able to guess by the package size that he got a Wii game from her and Uncle Michael.
Now he's got the real present!
What is this Twister thing my parents gave me?
Ooooh, look - the real present! A trampoline!
And because we can never have enough celebration shots. (this was a combo birthday gift for Rory too)
Camden and the ugliest cake ever. He didn't fail to remind me that he doesn't like store cakes because he hates the icing. I actually knew that, but in the midst of two hospital visits and just trying to actually have a cake forgot that little detail and we bought one instead of making one. It didn't stop him from having a big piece with ice cream.
The first casualty from the trampoline - she immediately face planted when she got on.
Caught ya, buddy!
Who knew falling down could be this much fun?
Brian unsuccessfully trying to demonstrate a seat bounce. To his credit, he got it right the next time.
One of many, many unsuccessful trampoline shots. :)
So much easier when they're still.
And now Rory's turn to jump.
It was a lovely day, and I'm pretty sure the birthday boy had a good time!
