Campbell--Thirteen Months Later

I thought I'd share a little Campbell update with you guys. Mostly so I wont forget!! I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this blog to look back and help me remember things.
Campbell turned 13 months old on Sunday. This stage with him is so wonderful. We hang out in our bonus room for the majority of the day. It's where all of Campbell's toys are and he loves playing with his toys. Sometimes I pop out of the room for a quick minute to take care of something around the house. Campbell never even notices that I've left. One day a couple of weeks ago, I left the room and when I came back there was a stack of blocks in the middle of the room. It really tickled me! He had never stacked his blocks before and I just thought it was so cute to walk into the room to that! Now he stacks his blocks all the time. My neighbor gave me these blocks because her kids are too big for them now and I'm so glad she did. Campbell loves his blocks!
Campbell is cruising furniture like crazy now. Yesterday he stood up all by himself for a super long time. It's the first time he's really stood alone like that. I still think it will be a while before he decides he's ready to walk. I'm guessing maybe sometime in June. I barley hold onto his little hands while he walks but he's just unsure about it to try it for himself. Once he's ready to let go I think he'll just take off.
Campbell talks all. the. time. He loves to hear himself talk. Strangers will come up to us in a store and comment about how much he's talking! He isn't saying any real words yet but I know that's coming soon. If you ask him to say something, he focuses really hard then nods his head and says it back to you in his own babbling way. It's super cute!! :)
He's getting slightly more particular about his food. I used to be able to throw anything on his tray and he would eat it. Now I can't get him to eat watermelon, avocados or broccoli. He also hates milk and I probably haven't given him a sip of it in weeks. Oops! I just don't know if I'll ever be able to get him to drink it because he despises it so much. I try to compensate by giving him a lot of eggs, yogurt and cheese. Also, Campbell has become obsessed with carbs. Who can blame him?
Campbell isn't loud or rambunctious or rough. I love that he's so sweet and calm and gentle. I absolutely knew that's what his personality would be like when I was pregnant with him. I hope he's always this way. Scott and I were in a class at church and they asked us to pray for actual adjectives that we hope our child possess. Not just that we pray they're always healthy and happy but what we hope them to be. I pray that Campbell will be kind, joyful and sweet, to name a few. So far we're off to a good start.


  1. None of my kids drink milk and they're healthy as can be! Just fyi =)

    1. Yeah I kind of don't even care. Nobody in this house drinks milk because I think it's gross! I don't really see the need for it. Neither of us play by the "rules" do we?! ;)
