C is 4! and other good things

We've had a lot going on lately - some of the non-bloggable variety (everything is ok, don't worry) and some that needs to be commemorated in photo form - below!

In the latter category, Cameron turned 4!

Mr C.  Cameron is my sweet, smart, relatively uncomplicated little boy.  He says the most random and hilarious things ("Can we go to Earth?  One day?" he asked casually at the breakfast table).  He mispronounces "rhinoceros" in the best possible way.  His favorite color is green ("AND blue," he reminded me) and favorite food is mac 'n' cheese, preferably from Panera.  

He is rough and tough and covered in 9385 bruises, none of which he can remember the origin.   He loves to play basketball.  He tolerates Genevieve (we're still working on it!).  Yep, he falls into all of the typical gender stereotypes - what can I say?  

His hugs are becoming less frequent (sigh) but no less delicious.  He is soft and cuddly and honestly seems younger than 4 in many ways, but he's also starting to write letters and tries to beat A in tic tac toe.

He can whine with the best of them (= his older sister . . .) but I think he has an easygoing personality underneath.  I can't wait to see even more of his personality come out as he grows up.  Happy birthday CAMERON!!!

Pix from his party - we did a big bash at our local JCC, inviting his whole class.  There was basketball, balloon animals, and glitter tattoos.  Dinosaur party favors.  And a basketball cake!  It was a terrific affair.

Another day, another hand-knitted dress (this one by my mom)


She's (mostly) out of the Rock 'n' Play!
(I'm avoiding due to some head flattening/asymmetry already - agh)
(She's doing naps in the crib in her room and nights still in our room in a bassinet)

Note - I feel like 4 is when one graduates officially from the little kid/baby phase to that middle phase -- although I suppose one could argue it's kindergarten/5.  Honestly I'm not ready, so I'm glad I still have G!!!
