I'm not sure how many people actually read this, since I rarely update it..but I'm more so doing this for myself so I can look back later. Wow, we have had some major changes in our lives over the past few weeks/months. First of all we now have a daughter! Kaylee Mae Bookout was born on July 12th. I was once again induced, which was rather nice being able to somewhat plan things with having another child (who spent his first night away from me while I was in the hospital). He was in great hands with my parents, who are also the other people in his life whom he is most familiar and comfortable with. I have to admit I was ready to bust out of that room though and have our family all back together again.Kaylee's delivery was a breeze! She was born at 1:27pm and weighed 6lbs 12oz and was 20.5 inches long. At one point I remember telling my nurse that I felt ALOT of pressure...she decided to go ahead and check me and could see Kaylee's head. She called my Dr. right away and I basically had to wait for him to get there before pushing. It took about 3 pushes before she was here. She is perfect. We had/still have issues with her going number 2 on her own (I pump once a day and give her some miralax to help out with that). We made several trips to Children's hospital for xrays and blood work. Turns out they didn't find anything anatomically wrong (praise God). We also had our issues with nursing again---as I did with Cameron but have worked through each of those obstacles as well and she is doing great now!

Cameron turned two! I guess that means I no longer refer to his age in months but in years! He is a wild man. He is my little buddy and I love him to the core. At his two year checkup he was in the 25th% for his weight and 75th% for his height. He is tall and skinny. He still doesn't use many words but excels in his mobility! I feel confident he could scale any mountain. He had a toy story birthday party and his cake didn't quite turn out as I had hoped (I guess that's to be expected when you have a newborn strapped to your chest and boxes thrown around your house..atleast that's my excuse...I might not be on Ace of Cakes).

We sold our home of the past 6 years in Leeds. When our seller backed out 2 weeks before closing we took the FSBO sign out of our yard so we wouldn't have the stress of selling our home and welcoming a new baby at the same time. Well God had other plans and a lady who had seen our sign earlier was still interested and wanted to come take a look at our house. Long story short she made an offer and bought our house. We started the packing process (again)

We were NOT expecting that to happen but are really thankful to God and his higher plans. I will really miss this house though.

We found a great home off Valleydale road that is closer to everything for us. It already has a homey feel even without our pictures on the walls. Cameron's highlight is our new home has stairs (gates must be installed asap...however I'm worried he will only climb over them making for a more devastating spill). It only takes Jason 11 min. now to get to work and he can even come home on his lunch break.

This is short and I'd like to write a lot more but have a feeling my sleeping angel will wake any moment...and Cameron is crawling all over me.

I'll leave you with this:

Excited to hold his sister:

A little scared that mommy would actually let him hold me!
