The magical power of my blog

Hello fellow bloggers! I am back and feeling great! My surgery went well and I have recovered faster than I expected. I'm so glad I had it done. I feel light years better already having that thing out.

It turns out my blog has magical powers. I've long suspected it might, but it has now been proved to me. You see, any time I write a blog about something Camden is not doing, something magical happens and within a few weeks time, he's doing it like an old pro. Around Christmas time, I wrote about
Camden not eating solids. A few weeks later, there he was doing it. I've posted about how he's not really crawling or how he doesn't have teeth. And then, a few weeks later, it happens.

Remember my last post? About Camden not walking? Guess what he did today? He walked! This morning we were all lounging in the living room, getting ready for breakfast. Camden decided to take four little steps. Later this afternoon he took about twelve steps in a row before falling down. He's pretty slow walking so far and takes small steps, but he's doing it. He's so proud of himself and loves when we cheer him on. The funniest thing is when he falls down. Then he sits up on his knees and tries to walk across the room on his knees. He looks at us expecting the same reaction walking gets. It's such a funny face he makes! I know he'll just get faster from here. I'm so proud of my little boy today!

I'm wondering if the magical powers will work in other parts of my life. Maybe if I post something here that I really, really want, it will happen in a few weeks. Give me some more time and I may just test this theory out.

Well, this is a quick all about me post. I promise to check in on all you wonderful people sometime this week. And I will be back up and running with My Life Monday this coming Monday. I'll even give you a date to watch for - July 31, 2006. I'll see you all then!

LynAnne said...

What a relief to hear everything went so well with your surgery! And, how exciting about Cam!

Hopefully you'll still have some time to ENJOY your vacation without feeling so ill. When does school start for you?

I'm glad to hear from you. The mystical powers of the blog! How exciting Cameron decided to start walking. That seems to be how kids do it. It's like, in their minds, they know how to do things all along, they're just waiting for that great moment to just spring it on you and surprise the crap out of you. :-) How fun! Yeah, Cameron!

Congrats to Cam and to you for getting through your surgery. I'm so glad things are going well for everyone.

I wrote a post about Sam not walking or talking like over a month ago. Neither is happening.

Gl;ad your surgery went well. Always makes me nervous when I hear about GB removal-- I never share my story- I was that 2% that something happens too. ;) yay on the walking!

Hurray for Camden. I love those first little baby steps. I am glad you are recovering well.

Mama D said...

Way to go Cam! Beware the magical powers of your blog... Don't say something like "I wish he'd just grow up faster." or something. The next day you could wake up and find an 18 year old in his bed!!

Glad to hear your surgery went well! Very good news!

modernmama said...

YAY for Camden!! I'm with Linsey...I'm going to blog about some new shoes too!

Welcome back! (now that I'll be scarce for 2 weeks) Can't wait to get back to the MLM! And way to go Camden!!!

Maine Mom said...

Glad you're back and that your surgery went well!
I've found that if I tell someone or write something about one of my children, whatever I've said or written is bound to change within a week.
I'm glad Camden is walking. Those first steps they take are so exciting!

amerimeximadre said...

crazymumma said...

Hope you feel better after surgery. Kids certainly have the power to amaze!
Food tips...well believe it or not, mine, tho we are dedicated carnivores LOVE tofu.
Cut into chunks bitesize...Marinate in Soy, pan fry in olive oil. Maybe a dip sauce if experimental......
Get well....Anne
