Baby want to be

Before continuing with today's regularly scheduled post, I want to thank all who voted for me in the Share the Love awards. I made it to the top five finalists in "Best Commenter" category. Please head over there sometime this week and give your final votes. There are so many wonderful blogs. Be sure to check them out.

Camden turned 10 months over the weekend. I cannot believe time has gone by so fast! We only have a few more months till that big first birthday.

During Cam's ninth month of life, he decided to start exploring future career options. Yeah, we start them early in our home. Don't want any shiftless sponges living with us at 21. ;) Here are some of the many career choices Camden checked out.



The first career Camden checked out was candy taster. By the smile on his face and the drool on his chest, I think that is a good option. Also all the chub rolls show he has no problem eating. He could handle pounds of candy with ease!








Cam's second career exploration involved dentistry. He can fit both his hands in either my mouth or his dad's, an important characteristic in a dentist. He can also force a mouth open, a critical skill with reluctant children.











The third career option Cam pursued was literary scholar. Look at him as he studies those pictures. He is well on his way to writing a best seller or critiquing the latest novel.







The fourth career Camden investigated was baby food critic. Making a mess is essential for this career, and as pictured, Camden can do this with ease. Cam declares these mixed vegetables to be very tasty. He also gives the mess factor a resounding two thumbs up.







Lastly, Camden studied the career option of being a pianist. Although it may sound like pounding on a piano to the untrained ear, his music is sure to be a hit with babies everywhere.





And finally, it's time to talk about the other things Cam accomplished in his ninth month of life. He is starting to eat more and more solids, no longer making the face of death. Nursing was given up completely by Cam, not by his mother. And last week, we had lift off as the boy started to crawl!

ROFLOL! You forgot a couple of very important career choices he has also explored: Diaper Demolition Expert and Horticulturist (as per this morning's plant experiment). It also should be mentioned that he is trying to get The Pacifier Toss inducted as an Olympic sport.

Rachelle said...

I didn't have pics of those honey! Did you take a pic of the plant demolition this morning?

MusicalMom said...

I can't believe my baby turns one next week!

Stephanie said...

At least he's got options, right?

Angela said...

Cam is an adorable little boy. I miss that age! He has a very bright future ahead of him....lots of career choices. Let's hope he doesn't try out plumbing,though. Linsey and I can fill you in on what happens when your children are interested in the plumbing.

Great Post! That's given me some ideas for a scrapbook page! Cam is so adorable!!

Emily said...

LOL!!!
You know as a candy taster it would help if he was also a dentist...and he could be a pianist in his spare time....

Those pictures are a riot!

emlouisa said...

rofl! He is so so so cute!!! And I think you should focus on the piano. He looks adorable sitting there! Or adora-calf as my brother would say, since he isn't old enough to be a bull.
