We've been pretty busy the past few weeks. Cameron has been home from his 9 week assignment at Fort Bliss. Presley has been attached to him since he got home. It's really cute to see her so excited to play with him. The first morning he went to get her out of bed and when he walked in she said, "Hi Momma.... wait, you're not momma, you're dada!" He is definitely her best friend right now.
He gets his hair done, gets to play princess and doctor and all her favorite games.
We went to Birmingham last weekend. Lea and David were watching Caden for the weekend so we got some quality time with him, too. He and Presley are so funny together. They both are obsessed with doing puzzles and games on the ipad. Thankfully, Cameron has one now so they didn't have to share. They were a big help icing Cameron's birthday cake, too!
We celebrated Cameron's birthday this week since he has to go to Fort Knox for 3 weeks. Presley was a big help making his cupcakes. After dinner and his gifts last night, she said "We had a great party tonight." We're sad we won't see him on his actual birthday, but we've had fun celebrating with him this week.
She's in a big princess stage right now. She loves watching the Tinkerbell movies or wearing her princess dress-up clothes. Mallie started giving her Princess Hair when we were in Dallas, so now she requests that almost on a daily basis. We even wear our tiara to the commissary sometimes. She still loves her dinosaurs and Lightning McQueen, though. Thanks to Liam, I think she will keep these interests for a while. It's really cute to see how excited she gets to show Liam her new Mater t-shirt when we skype. And Liam replies with "Wow, Pres, that is so cool." I'm glad we get to skype with them often cause they really are best little friends.
She's also really into playing doctor. She cracks us up by saying "You be the patient, I'm princess doctor. What hurts patient?" It's hilarious to hear her think about these things and know which tool checks blood pressure, temperature, etc. This is one of her favorite pretend games right now. She also enjoys her play kitchen. She will cook up a storm for us, then push the grocery cart full of play food around and us what we want to eat. She makes coffee for dada and water for mama. She even does her dishes now while we'll clean ours. She's at such a fun age and truly makes us laugh constantly by saying some of the funniest things.
I am now 25 weeks pregnant. I am so anxious to meet our little boy. Presley seems to like the idea of having a brother so far... I know that will probably change. She keeps saying "When Baby David come out of your belly, he gonna play with me." She really enjoys going to my appointments with me and hearing his heartbeat. So far, this pregnancy has been pretty uneventful. I still have a few weird food aversions and little bouts of nausea, but overall am feeling well. He was breach the past few weeks, but has now turned. Hopefully, he won't turn back. One of the ultrasound technicians took this 4D picture of his face for us. It's so precious!! Can't wait to see him in person!! He already seems to be extremely active...makes me a little nervous for my future!
Presley had her first dentist exam yesterday. She did much better than I expected!! We watched an episode of Dino Dan (yes, it's her favorite show) where he went to the dentist too. She kept saying that she was also going to see a T-Rex at the dentist. I decided to take her stuffed T-Rex from D and G. That seemed to work. It was a great office, though. She laid back in the chair, put on her headphones and watched Lightning McQueen! It was all good till the dentist moved the chair and she realized something was about to happen. She pulled it together though and thankfully, he was very fast examining her teeth! I can't believe how grown up she is!!
