New Adventures in the World of Smith

Here are some pictures of the comings and goings here lately at the Smith household.

I made brownies tonight and let Cameron lick the beaters for the first time. I am normally against eating batter, but this didn't have any eggs so I let them go at it. He seemed to really like it.

Today Cameron found Quin's coconut bra from Brazil. I put it on him and he loved running around in it. The kid is such a ham!

We have told Cameron that he can be whatever he wants to be except a modern artist. Well I guess he is starting the rebellion early because here is one of his latest master pieces that he made tonight at dinner. The medium is mash potatoes on glass table.

For our Valentine's meal we had crab and blue potatoes. They were pretty cool. Cameron seemed to really like them.

We are working on year 3 of the Smith Family garden. Year one was pretty much a flop and year 2 had only marginal results. We are really hoping to get some zucchini this year. I mean the thing is practically a weed and we can't grow it. Oh well, maybe with Cameron's help.

Cameron loves to floss his teeth. If he is throwing a fit at bed time, we just ask him if he wants to floss and immediately the fit stops, he jumps up and runs to the bathroom. Oh well, I guess this is one of the few things he gets from me.

A few weeks ago, Quin was asked to host the Boy Scout Southern Sierra Council Silver Beaver Appreciation dinner. So we got to get all dressed up fancy and go to a nice dinner. We had a pretty good time and Quin did a great job even with only a few hours notice and a cold.

We have had a pretty big scare in our family of late. My mom passed out exercising and was taken to the hospital. They found out that she needs a new heart valve and will have to have surgery here in the coming weeks. I took this picture on New Year's Day and think it is so cute. Just wanted to let my parents know how much I love them and how much they mean to me.

Fun Pics

So I was working on posting a whole buncha pics from 2010, but never got it finished. I am so sick of looking at my old post so I am just gonna put some cute fun pics up.

Helping Dad out in the yard. He was so excited! This was the first time we had let him walk around out in the back yard. He walked all over. He was so happy to be Dad's big helper!

Cameron dumped out our box of Christmas oranges and the proceed to take the stickers off all of the oranges. He was occupied for some time.

Cameron was too quiet one day, when I went to check on him this is what I found. Sitting in half a box of powdered milk. And yes, that is a nettipot.

Cameron loves to go out in the mornings and help Quin start the motorcycle!

New Garbage Can

Tonight Quin and I are going to go shopping for a new garbage can. I am looking for a really tall one with a lid. Preferably one where you have to put in a password, then a retina scan is performed. After this, a tall ladder comes down. Once you have climbed said ladder, a voice recognition is performed. Once this is all completed, then the lid opens. Yes, I hope there is one like this on the market. Why? Because I left my very active (understatement of the year) 9 month old unsupervised for a few minutes.

Just some fun pics

Wow, it has been so long since we posted. We are still alive, we are just super busy with Cameron. He goes non-stop! He is crawling now and gets into everything. He just started to pull himself up and I don't think that it will be that long before he starts to walk!!! He is not even 7 months old yet.

Our little Cameron

Here's some pictures of Cameron. Quin took these last night with his phone and they turned out great! Cameron is getting so big! He loves to laugh and roll all around. He loves to play and wrestle and has mastered how to do raspberries with his tongue. He even gives great slobbery kisses. We went to the Dr. today and he weighs 14 lbs 11 oz and is 26 1/2 inches. He is in the 42nd percentile for weight and 90th in height, so he is tall and skinny.

One of the things I have had to get used to being married is sleeping with someone else next to me. Quin is particularly interesting. Just like a little kid, he doesn't want to go to bed, he is afraid he will miss something. Once he does go to bed, he is asleep before his head hits the pillow. Even if he tries to stay awake so we can talk he falls asleep mid conversation. This usually results in some interesting conversations because his dreams get intertwined in the conversation. He has even gotten mad at me for some thing I have "said" during one of these sleep/conversations.

The other night Quin and I were watching 7 pounds with Will Smith. In the movie Will Smith starts fixing a machine for another character. Unbeknownst to me Quin had fallen asleep. Our conversation went like this:

Me: oh yeah, he went to MIT to be an engineer so he can probably fix that for her.
Quin: Yeah and he is Jewish and naked.
Me: What?!?!
As far as I knew the movie hadn't mentioned that he was Jewish and he definitely was not naked.
I then realize that Quin had fallen asleep. One can only wonder what he was dreaming!
