Wiping away the debris of the week

Thank goodness it’s Friday. I had planned to take this afternoon off because I’ve been working long hours at a frenzied pace. Alas, the calendar conspired against me and I am in meetings until 4:30 PM. But I am feeling much better today about work than I have all week so I don’t mind too much.

Yesterday was a whirlwind which included an interview for a new position. The executive and I hit it off and pending the results of some follow up interviews and other opportunities I am exploring the end is in sight for my current role. Just in time for all the heavy lifting to be completed!

Cameron has been absolutely wonderful except for Monday when she was really suffering from having her first 1 year molar come in. But she was her normal cheerful self on Tuesday. While brushing her teeth I confirmed my suspicions and found her first molar. Cameron is still missing one of her bottom 4 teeth that normally come in first and I can feel some swelling in that area as well as her other bottom molar area so we might be battening down the hatches this weekend and stocking up on pain medication. I hope not because it’s supposed to be beautiful here this weekend and we have our last swim class tomorrow.

There haven't been great strides (heh, get it?) in the walking department. Cameron will still take a few steps on her own if encouraged but she would prefer to hold on to something while walking. I can't tell if it will be a gradual process with her or if one day she will have a major breakthrough and we'll be chasing after her all the time. Any predictions?

I know I have been horribly remiss in posting photos (sorry, Mimi!) but I haven't been whipping the camera out as often and the shots I do get tend to show Cameron looking strange. But I will commit myself to getting at least a few good pictures this weekend so I can share the cuteness that is Cameron. In the meantime, enjoy your Friday...I know I will!

Yeah, I went through a very sparse picture period starting around 12 months, it's only now getting easier as I learn to take "action" shots. The key is to hold the button 1/2 way down so it stays in focus and your shutter speed is instantaneous when you see a good shot (pushing the rest of the way down).
