Little Fishy


Me and James and Amy and Hank

Me and James and Amber and Nate

My little fish had his first splash in the pool two days ago. I wasn't sure how it would go but was pleasantly surprised at how well he took it. At first he was a little indifferent but when I played with him in the water, he was really getting the hang of it.
We had a playdate with his two friends, Nate and Hank. They all had a great time. James was really worn out after swimming and had a bit of a temper tantrum but I rocked him to sleep with a bottle and he took an hour and a half nap!
We love hanging out with Amber, Nate, Amy, and Hank!

Famly Vacation- Part 1

We spent a week on vacation last week and we had a ball. James finally got to meet all of his mommy's side of the family. Nana had a party on Sunday and there were about 40 people there and I think they all had a chance to hold James. He was a great sport and enjoyed the attention.
After we spent a few days in New Orleans, we went to the fish camp. We have so many great pictures of the fish camp and of all of the fun we had in New Orleans. It's going to take me awhile to post them all.
Here are a few from the fish camp that my dad took with his iphone.
Pops spent a good deal of time holding James and totally spoiling him. The above picture is of James after Pops rocked him to sleep in the recliner. He's all tuckered out!
The above picture makes me sad. These guys fished their hearts out and didnt catch a thing! Well, Steve caught a few small catfish but that hardly counts. Before the trip, they went shopping for all of the coolest lures and fishing gear and I think that's why I feel so sad that they didnt catch anything.

I love the above picture of pops and James. It's a keeper. This is them sitting on the dock enjoying the peace and quiet.

Sleeping like a baby

Just a few pics of James at his best.

New Walker!

Well, we thought we were getting a walker, but it turned out to be an Eggroll.

He's not quite tall enough to reach the floor and push himself around, but he loves sitting suspended in the air and playing with the giraffes and other toys. Between the new hardwood floors and this walker, there will be no stopping this kid soon!

Independence Day!

My mom snapped this picture of us since it is pretty rare that both of us are together with James and cleaned up suitably for a picture. We spent the afternoon hanging out with grandparents, aunt and uncle and cousins. We grilled out, played some cornhole and just enjoyed each other's company. It was a great day!
