The queen of busy town

I was talking to my mom today and she asked how Cameron was doing. My response? "She's very busy." And she is, constantly. It doesn't matter what she is doing she does it with such an intentness that you can practically hear the wheels turning in her cute little head. Cameron always has to be doing something. There is never a moment to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet. Looks like toddlerhood has hit us hard!

This is Cameron's pooping corner. Every time she had to poop this weekend we happened to be in the living room and she would head to this corner, grunt a few times and bang, a nice little present for Mommy or Daddy to clean up. I heard somewhere that picking a particular location is an early sign of the ability to be potty trained. Given that she still falls down a lot when she walks I think we'll hold off on that particular learning process for a while.
Cameron always tries to carry her daycare bag when we are entering or leaving the school. So when we were at the mall this weekend I stopped by Claire's to pick up her very own purse. As you can see, Cameron loves it and insists on carrying it with her everywhere.
I had to include this photo because, man, this kid is cute, isn't she? We had some friends over for a BBQ last night and I mentioned that I was surprised she wasn't "discovered" in our outing to the mall. It's about time Cameron started earning her keep :-)
Despite being extraordinarily busy Cameron does love her arm chair, a birthday present from Grammy. She gets annoyed if I sit in it. She seems to realize that it is her chair and no one else should sit in it.

Penny does so many of the same faces - I can't wait to see all the cousins together this summer.

Holden is the same way. Always on the go. We don't have the "poop corner" yet. But boys are slower than girls :)

Finn constantly sits in Lucy's chair, so she's perfectly happy to roll all over his instead. Hope all these little ones can manage to share a bit while we're in NC!

If Cameron's the queen of busytown, where's Goldbug?? :-)

What a cutie! The Baby now points to whichever end he's done something in (front or back), but with two older brothers, he thinks it's funny to make a "pee-hew", and they just laugh when he says it. Ugh.

Is it a bad thing if I offered the Oldest $100 if by the end of the summer he's toilet-trained the Baby?

I just love love love that picture of her holding her chin!! Adorable! Madi has her own chair too and it just cracks me up everytime she get in and sits in it like a big girl.

Good call on the purse. Never too early for some fashionable accessories, right?! She is too cute.
