For all of those waiting on the edge of their seats for this update...I PASSED the ACE Personal Training Exam today. This is the one I FAILED earlier this year. Womp womp. I probably wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of my Aunt Wendy and Nicole who also took the Exam today and passed :) We all had taken the training class at AACC which prepared us to take the test today ...there were late nights and early mornings filled with studying, donuts, and bottle after bottle of wine. And even though it is brain is still on information overload. 

I came home after my test to see my little man cheering me on...looks like he's already practicing his weird mommy faces.

And my big man came home with flowers <3 Jeremy and Camden are the best.

This past weekend we went to our friends' house for their annual Christmas party. Camden got to play with all of his friends and mommy and daddy got to play with theirs :)

At this Christmas party we always play the White Elephant gift exchange and every year Jeremy and I try to give funnier gifts than the year before. This year we made out with the gifts that we got to go home with. I ended up with an "I am TPAIN" record-able microphone and Jeremy got a big bottle of tequila. HELLO DATE NIGHT.

We have done some updating in the house to Jeremy's man it's a man/boy cave. Camden has a nice place to play and Jeremy can still watch Camden from his sports bar. Now we will have room for whatever new toys Camden will get for Christmas.

Speaking of, we are finishing up getting the house ready for Christmas. 6 days...EEK!!!! Our stockings have been hung by the chimney with Jeremy's care and tonight was gift wrapping night.

Jeremy and I have decided this year to not really give each other gifts. There's nothing at this point we NEED, and honestly, this little guy is the best gift ever...what more could we want?

Happy 6 Months!!

Camden turned the big 6 months last Thursday! Today we went for the 6 month check up.

He obviously wasn't a big fan of the shots....THREE needles this time :(....but he still did great. He even found his new favorite thing...the paper on the table. Christmas time is going to be fun!

Nothing really new to report with Camden...except that he has learned to scream....for no reason. He must get that from his mom. Someone has to be loud and the center of attention...I totally understand. AND if that's the worst thing he's going to do now, I'll take it.

We had a nice weekend with friends. Camden had his first sleepover with his friend David who is 7 months. Trying to teach Camden to share is going to be fun. He wanted every single toy that David had and had no problem taking them from him. Oh boy....!

I have finally finished up my personal training class at the college. If I did my calculations correctly, I got an A in the class. Whoop whoop! Aunt Wendy, Nicole and I have all signed up to take the national ACE exam on the Monday. EEK. This is the test that actually matters, the one that I received a (STATUS : FAIL) on the first time I took it. Good news is that I already feel so much more prepared than before :) Keeping my fingers crossed.

We've been playing a not-so-fun game of Tag in the Floyd household. This game of Tag is also known as "pass the cold." Right now everyone seems to be getting over it, but if we're going to continue to play, it looks like I would be next one to be IT. Womp Womp. It probably doesn't help that I am still constantly eating Camdens' hands, or kissing his cheeks, or licking his head. I don't know how to keep my mouth to myself when this baby is around!

Even though Camden is sick, you would never know, unless you hear him cough or if you get stuck sucking out his nose. Yes, you heard me right. He is still extremely playful and he sleeps great through the night....he handles a cold better than Jeremy and I do!

Peek-a-boo Camden, we seee you!!

He is also my little errand buddy. If you get him after a nap and a feeding, he is pleasant to take everywhere. No one likes a cranky baby and everyone loves Camden. No matter where we go, we always get caught up because we end up chatting with someone new. Old ladies love him! It must be that toothless smile they're after.

We have put up all of our decorations for Christmas....and although it doesn't feel like Christmas time, it's beginning to look a lot like it in our house!

Mimi gave Camden a special ornament that is his that he can look forward to putting on the tree each year. We helped him get the tradition started :)

Mommy and Daddy got their own special ornaments this year too!
