Cameron: Human Whack-A-Mole In Training.

I have written before that Cameron is a gift. And not just a birthday gift either (though she was born on my birthday). She is balm for my soul. She is pure joy on the hardest days. She has a smile that warms my heart. I rarely worry about Cameron, though I do feel guilty about that fact that I don't worry about her like I worry about Max. Cameron loves her big brother. She puts up with a lot. For a few weeks she even tolerated being treated like a human whack-a-mole as Max decided a fantastic way to get attention was to bop her on the head and knock her on her butt at every opportunity. Lucky for Cameron, Max's Senior Therapist Valinda helped us sort it all out and Max has cut out the Rabbit Foo-Foo act.
Cameron wants to do whatever Max is doing and he finds this terrificly annoying. As she gets bigger and more insistent, I often sit back and observe, letting them work out their sibling relationship. Of course I would step in if either of them got out of hand. I've learned that Cameron has it in her to cry "wolf" and that we need to be aware of that. She is also not above biting Max, which is an issue because he is oblivious to pain and she could really do damage and we wouldn't know until we saw the evidence. Most of the time their relationship is normal though, and through thick and thin, I am so happy for Max that he has a little sister.
The thing that cracks me up the most about Cameron is her love of gadgets. This girl loves remote controls, blackberrys, cell phones, wireless mice, and laptops. Even when she isn't feeling well, she finds solace in capturing a piece of technology and claiming it as her own. My kind of girl.
