James has always been a good eater but his immediate mastery of eating corn on the cob surprised even Steve and me! James had just fallen on the aggregrate in the back yard and has two nasty lumps on the left side of his forehead. You can see the lumps towards the end of the video when he's eating his off-brand otterpop.

Here is a picture of James looking interested in whatever Emma was doing...that's how he spent most of the time.
Here's a picture of James and me in the lobby area at the arena. We also spent time in the lobby during the show so he could run around and burn off some energy.
Here are some pictures of James and me at the famous Cafe du Monde in Metairie! We love beignets!
Here are the boys goofing off for the camera. James is playing an unprompted game of peekaboo and Quinn is smiling for the picture.
When James gets really excited these days, he grits his teeth together and starts smiling really wide. It's pretty funny.
This is James at the "poor man's pool"! Ha! It's the fountain at the Streets of Indian Lake. He had a great time and I didnt have to worry about him drowning.

James' Gramma made his big cake. She's quite the artiste! I made his small smash cake. I actually created a two layer, small round and not only created orange icing but also piped black icing as the "01". That's alot of effort for me!!! Ha!

Nana and Pops gave James this picnic table/water table for his birthday. I've learned since he started daycare that he really likes to sit at the table like a big boy to eat. He also likes to splash around in the tub so I thought this would be a great, multi-functional gift. And, he loves it!

Thanks to his Nana sending the carseat base back to us in TN, James got his first cardboard box fort. It was hilarious to watch him play in this thing. What you don't see in the video is that later on, James decided to quit using the "door" and started crawling in and out of the window. He's such a boy!

Here is a picture of our house after one of the many snowfalls Nashville saw this year. This was after the snow melted a bit and we have actually had days that accumulated much more snow than this. You will not often find me out in the cold so the fact that I took this picture in the first place is kind of amazing. Everyone asks me if I took James out in the snow. The answer to that is a big fat "NO". What fun would it be for me to stand out in the cold holding a 22 lb baby? If he walked or really even had any idea what snow was/meant, I would definitely have gone out with him. I will enjoy the warmth this year but I'm sure next winter season will be a different story.
I would also like to make a quick shout out to Steve for hanging Christmas lights this year. He really didn't want to but I begged him until he gave in.
Here is James multi-tasking again. He has a lot to accomplish so he tries to squeeze in as many things as possible. He is practicing standing and drinking his bottle at the same time. For a kid who just learned how to pull himself up to stand, his balance isn't half bad...which is a good thing because I'm sure the wood floor is less than cozy to fall on. (And, of course the world's most annoying dog is in the picture. He's like "Where's Waldo"... play along as you look through the rest of these pics.
