It’s Cameron’s turn for the birthday treatment. My charming little guy turns 8 today plus he’s my 2nd child which means I can still get away with a top 10 list! (See how I did that? Brilliant I tell you.:)
Here’s 10 of my favourite things about Cameron showcased with photos from our year of travel together.
Happy Birthday Cammy D.
1. He’s smart
2. He’s funny
Always has been. He loves to laugh and has one of those giggles that is infectious. Hearing him laugh in the morning can keep me smiling all day long.
3. He’s a phenomenal athlete.
Scouts: You need to watch this kid. He hasn’t met a sport he can’t conquer and when he’s in the water he’s a fish.
4. He loves to cook
At every lesson we took during our travels Cam was front and centre. He asked questions about what we were doing and then was first in line as taste tester.
5. He loves animals
No matter how big. No matter how bad their breath is.
6. He does NOT lack personality
7. He makes my firstborn part of a dynamic duo
I love what he brings to their relationship. Ying and Yang those two.
8. He’s a lover not a fighter
If you’re smaller than him, he’s there for you. If you need help, he’s your guy. I’ve seen him walk away from a group of friends to make sure someone else was included too. He’s a kind soul.
9. He wears his heart on his sleeve
This kid has no poker face. If he’s happy, you see it. If he’s surprised, you see it. And on those rare occasions when he is worried or concerned that’s there too.
10. The Kid Can’t take a bad picture
Bad for a mom trying to choose 10 for a post but fantastic for memory keeping. ;)
To meet him is to love him. Happy Birthday baby boy. You make our lives better. xo
Sniff. I totally go teary eyed! I can’t believe how grown up he looks in the last pic. He’s an awesome kid. Happy Birthday Cam!
