Camden's Blessing

Grandma Whetten, Leslie, Jimmy, and Camden
Grandma Whetten and Camden
What a handsome little boy! Luckily we blessed him when we did. I do not think we could have squeezed him in this blessing outfit if we had waited even one more week. It was really short as it was. This was the same one that Elvin wore.
A family picture..Elvin had to have his dog blanket for it though.
Elvin loves giving brother kisses...
And hugs.
My boys! What a good looking bunch!

John's Birthday Party

We celebrated John's Birthday a little early since family was in town.Minnie was the one to break it. Way to go!
The guts of the Pinata!
John swings valiantly, but no luck.
Elvin had so much fun swinging at it!
John was showing Elvin how to do it.
Daddy's little helper.
While Elvin was "helping" John, I think he spit more than he blew. Luckily everyone at the party did not mind... I hope.
He got a new UofI shirt.
And some books and games that he had been wanting. Happy birthday John!

Latah County Fair

We went to the County fair this past weekend and had a blast. Elvin loved just looking at everything. He had fun doing this game.
The prize he chose...of course!...It's a "doggie".
I once caught a fish THIS BIG!!
The Pigs
The cows
And the sheep. He loved looking at all the animals. He kept doing their noises each time he saw a new one.

My Latest Project

What does everyone think? The original plan was just to do a few flowers with vinyl lettering of "The Whetten Family", then I got carried away with the glue gun. I am still deciding if I like it or not. Leave a comment and tell me what you all think.

My very own Idaho Vandals!

Elvin's Austin Powers Moment

What does this remind you of? Ee er, ee er...
His first pair of underware! He has decided he wants to be potty trained. Still undecided if it is a good thing right now or bad. But he just looks so cute and was so excited to wear them.

Stitches, runny noses, and cousins... OH MY!

The Butikofer's came for a short visit before we left for IF. Quin and Elvin were playing in this car and having so much fun.
The second day we were there, Elvin fell and hit his head just right. It was gaping and he looked so sad. This was the next day after I took off the bandaid. I had to give him a treat for being such a good sport. It took five stitches to close it!
Jimmy was being a great cousin and hailing all the little ones around. They had so much fun playing together.
June, Elvin, and Katie in the wagon.
Camden and his newest cousin. Stella is two weeks older. What a cutie!
Two heads are better than one! :)
Grandma Whetten and Camden. We are so excited that she is so much closer now.
He was just staring up at her so avidly, I had to get a picture of it.

Elvin's Latest Adventures

Awww, how sweet is this. Elvin loves to give kisses to his baby brother. We just have to watch him because he gets VERY enthusiastic with him.
Elvin's favorite things to do with his baby brother:
Poke...errr...I mean point out his eyes mean play with Camden in the bouncer (he likes to see how high he can get him to go when mama is not looking)
Steal...uh..share his pacifier
Feel his head and hold his hand, especially when mama is trying to nurse :)
But he especially loves to give him hugs and kisses!
Here is John and Elvin at the park. I love watching my boys play together. Elvin just drags John around to each toy that he wants to go on. And if John doesn't move fast enough, Elvin will grab his finger to get him to move.
Elvin loves to swing with his daddy!
Elvin loves to go for picnics in the Park. He got so excited to be able to sit on the bench like a big boy to eat his lunch. He really wants to be a big boy! He also likes to show off his latest trick...every time his diaper comes off, he likes to show mom and dad how well he can pee and aim....
We are trying to direct his creative talent. No luck so far. Meanwhile, I have bought lots of floor cleaner. Luckily its always in the bathroom before his bath that he likes to demonstrate his talents.
Elvin had some friends over to play and watch his favorite show on discovery kids... Hi 5. Lucas and Ethan have known Elvin since he was born from when we lived here before. They were all so excited to sit together and eat popcorn.
Check out that saggy diaper! He loves his little pool and this car. It has been so hot out that it has become almost a daily activity. Elvin loves the water.
Elvin Rey Whetten up close, and personal. We just did haircuts. Poor baby!
He is smiling for daddy.

Camden Jared Whetten
July 9, 2009
7 lbs 15 ounces
18 1/2 inches long

So our newest family member finally came! He came super fast. The doctor got there just in time to catch. The labor went ok. The worst part was that when we were done I was a human pin cushion! It took them five try's to get my IV in. And then 4 holes in my spine for the epidural-and it still did not work! But I am still alive. Camden is doing great. Growing so much already. He has surpassed his birth weight. And I am feeling good. Recuperating nicely. I have a really great husband who has been helping out so much and my mother in law was here and she was a HUGE help too.
And Elvin is.....adjusting to being a big brother. He is still learning the meaning of SOFT and not to point out Camden's eyes by poking them.
So all in all, we are all doing great and having fun with a little baby in the house again.
