Everyone's Favorite Superhero

Cameron turned five on Friday so I want to give a shout out to my cutest little "big kid." It's amazing to me that it's been FIVE WHOLE YEARS since Cameron joined our family! I still remember the day (and night, and following day) that he was born and it's been a great journey so far. Cameron had a rough first few months but soon turned into a little sweetie. His temperament is very much a mix of mine (the quick temper) and Chase's (the easy, laid-back mellow-ness).

It's been my privilege to watch as he's grown and overcome obstacles, from learning to climb the ladder at the playground, to learning to share toys and get along with friends, and so many other things. I'm so grateful to have been there for almost every moment. Since his birth I have only spent 4 nights away from him! Granted, I could probably use more of those... But honestly I wouldn't trade it for anything. He's my buddy, my helper, my monster-slayer. He takes seriously his job as big brother and role model and does his best to show Miles and Sophia the ropes.

So Cameron, I want to tell you how much I love you. I love you bigger than the sky. I love you more than all the water in the ocean. I love you farther than the moon. I love you deeper than the Grand Canyon. I love you better than chocolate. I love you!!!!! Happy Birthday, Spidey!

1. Awwww!
2. What?!?! No picture of Cam as Big Bird? Surely his infatuation with all things superhero stem from that fateful Halloween, never again will the boy wonder dress as molting puppet.
3. Owen is rockin' the potty! He and Miles should have a party to celebrate their success!

Yep, Cam's a pretty great kid. Nice work Anna & Chase. I miss hanging out with Cam, I'll have to come visit soon.

And thanks for the post about Elder Bednar. It's good to get a reminder. He's speaking at Stake Conf. in Pittsburgh, so I'll definitely try to get home that weekend to see him!

okay, it hasn't been that long since I've looked at your blog and you've had a lot of posts. I like it! HAPPY late BIRTHDAY CAMERON!! Thanks for the words from Elder Bednar's talk. I needed them. I loved your list post and I too hate it when my shirt smells a little, I don't know, rotten. I can't wait to see the pictures of your finished kitchen!
