A few firsts...

Here are a few of Camden's firsts....

First time in his car seat. He loves to sit in it, but hates to be buckled in unless we are in the car moving.First bath at home...hated it during the process...loved it after.

First time in the swing. This is the best babysitter ever!! He loves his swing.

First doctor's visit...he really hates the doctor!

First time hanging out at Grandma Cori's.

We really love our cute little boy!! We are still trying to get in a routine, but it gets better every day.

Baby Camden is Here!!

Well, we made it! Baby Camden is here! He was born at 3:00 AM on May 22nd. We had the c-section scheduled for May 23rd at 7 AM, but he just couldn't wait to come! I was actually having a dream that my water broke and I woke up all wet. I rolled over to Dustin and said, "I think my water broke." He very groggily said, "Are you sure you didn't just wet the bed?" I wasn't really sure, so I got up and went to the bathroom and that is when the contractions started. This was at about 1:15 AM. At first, they were not too painful, so we were just gathering stuff getting ready to go to the hospital. Within a few minutes, they had gotten extremely painful, and I didn't care what we didn't have, we were leaving. By the time we got to the hospital at 2:00 AM, I was dialated to a 5 and feeling like pushing. The nurses and Dustin tried to comfort me through the contractions, but I wasn't very nice at that point :) Dustin got yelled at a few times. My doctor got to the hospital at 2:30 AM and I was wheeled into surgery by 2:45 AM. Camden was delivered at 2:52! It was a quick process. So, even though I had to have a c-section, I experienced labor too!!

Anyway, both me and baby are doing well. I am slowly recovering and each day gets a little bit better. Me and Dustin are amazed at how much we already love our little boy and being parents is an adventure!! We are still working on getting any sleep at night, but hopefully it will happen soon. Here are some pictures of our little sweet heart!

Our new family!!

This is the day we left the hospital. Look at all that hair!! That is what we were most suprised to see!!

Look at those eyes! We love his bright eyes when he decides to open them!
