Cameron: Eight Months.

Stats: No official stats this month. 
Size 3 diapers, 6 months clothes (still a few 3-6 & 6-9 months too).

Firsts: First time spending the night at Pops and Cece {mom & dad were there too!}, first move {to Nashville!}, first tooth, first time eating squash {and I can't keep up with the new foods anymore!}, first storytime at the library, first time to stroller strides, first time staying at Wade & Amys, first time running at the Ag Park, first time meeting baby Kaden at Brookwood!

Milestones: You now can go from sitting up to being on your knees and belly. Just at the end of this month you started army crawling on hardwood!

Food & Sleep: You have been such a great baby this past month! You nurse around 5:30 or 6am and then usually go back to sleep for awhile and then I feed you again around 8:30 or so. You eat some breakfast a hour or so later. You take a nap sometime between 11:30-2 {depending on the day} then I nurse you when you wake up. You eat some lunch an hour so after nursing. You nap again around 4-6pm and I nurse you again when you wake up. You eat your dinner around 7 or so before bed! We try to have you in bed by 8 and on good nights you sleep the whole night :)

Our days: Well most of it is taken up by the eat/sleep schedule listed above. But we also go workout with Stroller Strides MWF mornings. I usually take you out on a run on Tuesday mornings and we run with dad when he gets off work on Thursday. Weekends have been crazy this month with lots of traveling {moving to Nashville & trips to Huntsville and Birmingham. 

Favorites: Mommy loves to watch you "cruise" (slowly) around the coffee table!. Daddy loves for you to walk while holding his hands!

Nicknames: Cam, CamMan, Big boy, Little Man.

Cameron, we love your sweet sweet smile and giggle. You make us so happy when you smile so big when we get you out of your crib! You are getting more and more adventuresome every day. We have loved watching you change so so much! You are such a big boy now! We look forward to all that is to come! We love you sweet boy :)

Nashville, Tennessee.

Nashville, Tennessee is now home to this Watford family. 

We are happy to be here and excited to see what the Lord has in store for our family. 

Cameron: Seven Months.

Hello my cuteness!!
I apoligize for the picture overload but someone was super cooperative during his photo shoot!

Stats: No official stats this month. 
Size 3 diapers, 6 months clothes (still a few 3-6 months too, amazingly).

Firsts: First baby shower, first cousin's birthday party, first 50th birthday celebration (for Gigi!), first 4th of July, first time to Nashville & Ohio, first rehearsal dinner and wedding, first time taking pics at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens (6 month pics!), first time meeting mom & dad's college friends Jared & Rebekah, first formula bottle- you took it like a champ!!

Milestones: You are just growing so fast. You now scoot around in your crib and also enjoy holding on to the rail while standing when we lift you there! Your hair is a growing and we are pumped!

Food & Sleep: You weren't the easiest same-room-sleeping-companion on our beach and Ohio trip this month. You woke often and would only soothe by eating or sleeping in the bed with us. When we returned from Ohio I knew we needed to work on improving our night time routine. After about of week of letting you cry it out a little 2-3 times a nights you were sleeping from approx. 8 pm to 5 am. This momma sure is enjoying a full nights sleep :) You are still eating so well. This month we've added butternut squash, carrots, zucchini, ... Of course you've had lots of little tastes from our plates too. You get so happy when we share with you! I now nurse you typically 4 times, but sometimes 5 times a day. If you want it, I'll give it to you :)

Our days: Pretty much the same as last month. You are waking around 5am and I nurse you and you go back to bed. You're up for the day around 7:30-8am and nurse again. After that we play and hang out and I feed you some food around 9am. After that it kind of changes day to day. If we are out and you get a little catnap in your carseat, your next nap will be pushed back. You're in the bed sleeping typically between 7-8 pm. You've been so so great lately.

Favorites: Mommy loves to play with you (you actually know how to play now!). Daddy loves your sweet giggles!

Nicknames: Cam, CamMan, Big boy

Cameron, we love your sweet smile and everything about you. You make life more fun and we love to see you grow. We know you will be one before we know it! We are trying to keep you our little baby as long as we can :) Love you!!

Glow in the Park 5k.

My last hurrah in Birmingham consisted of running... now that doesn't sound fun does it? Well it is when you add glow paint + glow powder + glow foam + glow necklaces + light rings + sweet friends. Yes, so fun. I was happy to be able to do one more thing before moving and I'm so glad I got to do it with my sweet friends Anna and Kristen! 

Now me and Anna aren't very hardcore runners... we try, but we fail. So Kristen was sweet enough to slow down and hang with us and we all had a good time! :)

This is what everyone looked like out there... the paint didn't glow too well :( This is Kristen and Anna running fast:

I think our shoes glowed more than us! 

Post race with the black light. 

Thanks for doing one last fun thing with me girls!! Sweet memories for sure! Miss yall!!
