What a CUTE baby!!! 

Sometime during all our summer fun, Cameron turned 4!  He wanted a Spiderman cake.  

And we took him to dinner at "Chinese" per his request.   My baby is growing up.  He is so fun.  Loves Honeynut Cheerios and would eat them for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner if he could.  He loves to dress up--reminds me of his older brother Dustin.   

 The bouncy toy he got as a gift.
Being silly one day 'dressing up' with a hat and beard and necklace.  I had some great shots of him and his dress-ups but they are on my lost phone.  He particularly likes hats.  He wore his wizard hat to the store and the library one day.  He put smiles on lots of peoples faces with that.

This fall he started laser treatments for the port wine stain on his face and neck.  He will have one every two or three months for a year or so.  Kind of a wait and see thing as to how many treatments.  We go to Albuquerque to the UNM Children's Hospital.   He is put under anesthesia.  From the time he went back to the OR and when they came and got me while he was waking up was an hour.  Not very long.  He looks very bruised at first but the bruising goes away pretty quickly and should all be gone after two weeks.

He seemed okay with everything.  His face seemed to hurt when I had to put the vaseline and sunscreen on and when he took his shirts off, but other than that it didn't seem to bother him.  The day after I asked him if he wanted to go to school (preschool) and he said "Well, I can't go to school with dots all over my face!"  Very cute.  

One day after  

One week after

The goal of the laser is to lighten it up, (make it less noticeable), but also to prevent further complications and tissue growth later in life.

What a handsome little guy! How fun to see some other little faces at his birthday party that looked familiar.
