This year we were lucky enough to share Thanksgiving with my brother Josh, his wife Shelby and their daughter Ada who came all the way from Idaho! As you can see, Ada is absolutely adorable! Mammie and Grandpa McLaughlin were also there helping out - and by helping out I mean that Mammie did 99% of everything. She wouldn't let me lift a finger... she kept saying something about surgery. ;) Seriously, I don't know what would I have done without her! We had such a great time visiting with everyone - I'm so glad that they could all come!

Welcome Home Lexi!

Ready for Her Hospital Pictures!

Our sweet angel, Alexia Brielle Tuthill, was born on Monday November 17th at 10:21 in the morning. She weighed in at 8 lbs, 4 ozs and was 20 inches long. We think she's just perfect! My mom and sister came to watch Cameron while we were at the hospital. He will be the first to tell you that they spoiled him rotten while we were away. :) We are home now and aside from being a little sleep deprived, doing great! (Actually, I think Mom and Amanda are just as tired as I am - Cameron has A LOT of energy and Mom and Amanda were fresh meat!) Thanks so much for taking such good care of our little munchkin and helping out while I was out of commission! :)

Our Sweet Boy

Cameron is such a little love. The other day he was picking me flowers, so of course I grabbed the camera. (These things need to be documented for future reference.) Okay, so they weren't exactly wild flowers and I probably shouldn't have encouraged him to pick flowers from my garden, but he did pre-smell them for me and only gave me the best. :)

Happy Halloween... A Few Days Late

Giraffes apparently LOVE lollipops...

just not green ones!

Ready to answer the door...

...Not so willing to share his lollipop!

Cameron was not exactly excited to wear his costume on Halloween. After several attempts at trying to rationalize with a 2 year old about how much fun it would be, we ended up resorting to shameless bribery to get him to wear his costume. Hey, what 2 year old doesn't need a lollipop right before bed, anyway? Even covered in a sticky lollipop mess, Cameron has got to be the cutest giraffe I've ever seen. Not that I'm at all biased... ;)
