The Sheriff is Mellowing

Courtney and the boys have been with us for 5 nights now. That's long enough that young Camden has gotten pretty comfortable with us. He's changed quite a bit since the last time we saw him. In fact, the Sheriff is beginning to mellow in his old age.

Camden is walking now, and he's traveling quite a bit. Look away for a moment and the little booger disappears. But he walks like an old drunk, so you can catch him pretty easily.

And he's starting to smile from time to time -- not much, mind you, but a little. He can still be the stern despot when he wants to be, but he's showing a human side at times.

And the little rascal is trying to talk. He's not forming words yet, at least not English words, but he's blabbing away about something most of the time. Really, it's more of a caterwauling that he carries on from the time he wakes up until he goes to sleep.

But he's a lot of fun. When Courtney bingos next month, we'll keep him and Xander for a few days, so it will be interesting to see how much he changes between now and then.

Xander is really good with Camden. He's very patient with him, and he plays with him a lot. Camden laughs for his big brother more than for anyone else. They have a special bond.

Camden and his scepter, which he uses to rule his kingdom with an iron fist. The lower lip is still prevalent.

One of the few happy faces you'll see on the Sheriff.
