After the circus we stopped by to see Grama and Grandpa and Camden took this picture with Grama, I think it is one of the best pictures of them together so far so I just had to throw it in.

Pumpkin Picking!

First off, I would like to welcome Donald John Patrick Moore to the world!!
After a rough past little over a week, he was born this afternoon, a month early at 12:22pm!
5lbs 2oz and 18 inches! He is doing great, and we cant wait to get a picture of him!!!!!

Today we went pumpkin picking. It seems like we always pick the coldest day of the year to do it. Every year we have gone it always seems the coldest!

Long Update

I have really been slacking the past couple days with posting, but we had a BIG weekend. Saturday we decided to follow my dad and all his Indian Riding buddies up to Springfield, MA. for the sneak preview of the Springfield Museum's Indian display. It was tons of fun, and it is always great to see all the guys that Dad rides with. They LOVE Camden, it is just one big extended family.

Dad's friend Barry, and Camden... they became good friends.
The usual suspects

Then on Sunday, we had another big day. Camden and Daddy went to visit with Auntie Liz and Gramie Holmes, and I attended my cousin's baby shower. A blast all the way around!
Here are a couple pictures from both adventures.

And more presents...

Now here we are on Tuesday, Camden is sick with his first cold he has ever had. To this day, he has never been sick, ever. So I am a little worried, but not too much. I am sure we will be fine through all of this. Tomorrow is my first midwife appointment with the midwife practice that we chose. I am really excited about it and looking forward to meeting with some of the other midwives with the practice.

Thursday, October 2, 2008


I interviewed a midwife practice yesterday, and I really think it is the practice I am going to go with. I liked the way she thought about birth, VBAC, and having 2 VBAC's at home herself was one real selling point. It is a little further than I personally wanted to drive, but I can deal I guess. I have another interview on Friday. I am debating on going or not. We will see.

Camden's 9 month Well Baby VIsit

Went great. He is now 18lbs 10 oz (15%) 28 1/2 inches (50%) and 46cm for his head (60%)!
His new pedi is awesome, we discussed selectively vaccinating, and what table foods to start.
I am looking forward to that since we got the big OK today.
Took us 3 months to get in with this Pedi because he is in such high demand in the natural parenting community in our area, and he was work ever minute of the wait!

Operation VBAC!

Since I decided we are taking the VBAC route for this new baby, I have decided to also go with a Midwife. I am interviewing two practices of midwives in the state this week, one affiliated with Danbury Hospital, and one affiliated with Yale. I am really bummed out that the birth centers in CT will not do VBAC because of stupid laws. UGH!
Wish us luck, I am hoping to find a great midwife next week!

Booth Park

How do I climb all the way up there?



Not looking at the camera


A mommy/camden moment caught... I didn't know this was taken but I love it


We just went down the slide!!!

I Love Money

Totally random and off topic, but I stayed up last night from 10:30-11:30 to watch I love Money and really... there is no reason to watch it anymore. I know next week is the finale, but seriously, the people who are still left should not have made it till the end, and do not deserve to win anything let alone $250,000.

Just my little reality TV vent for the week.

I can't wait for Thursday! (Ugly Betty & Gray's Anatomy) are back in Business!!!! I have been waiting long enough!

The Country Fair!

We went to the Orange Country Fair yesterday with Will's Dad and his Girlfriend Liz, better known as Grama Poopsie. We had a lot of fun, since we probably won't be able to make it up to The Big E before it ends, this was the next best thing.
