Say uh-oh when his sister falls over!
Eat any and everything with out any teeth!
Crawl as fast as his sister!
Eat a biter biscuit in record time!
Successfully crawl down the step down in the kitchen by himself with out toppling on his face!
Call me mananna!
Read books out loud!
Completely ignore me when I say NO!
Drink from a cup with no handles!
Talk louder when the vacuum is running!
Take his sister's pappy!
The one thing I am most proud of is how well they play together and how much they love each other. In the mornings and after naps they get so excited when one sees the other.

James used to be scared of the grass but not any more. I can only hope that he feels the same way about the sand at the beach next year as he feels about the grass now! He crawled a long way on the hard, prickly grass just to get to a blue can of motor oil! With the camo and the love for motor oil I think we are well on our way to raising a good old Georgia boy! (sorry if that offends you guys in Mississippi and Louisiana but tis what it tis!)

I am thanking God today though that He has blessed me with a sense of humor even in the most challenging circumstances! I can't help but laugh at James who for 1 minute or so forgets that he must be touching me to feel okay and ventures off to play in toy land. All of a sudden he sees me and realizes he's not touching me and his world starts to crumble. Or he could be really enjoying himself playing with the toys hanging off the exercauser until his overly exuberant sister bumps into, him knocking his pappy out to which she grabs, sticks in her mouth and scurries away leaving him pappless and completely crushed. Bless his heart he is having the toughest time today.
I can't help but laugh at Audrey who is happy as a lark until she sees her brother in my lap and starts having jealousy issues which lands two whinny babies in my lap. (At least she's not trying to push James out of my lap yet!) She has tumbled on her face a million times already today (I'm attributing her extra clumsiness to the Benadryl) and barely makes a peep. But let James be playing with a toy she wants and the tears start flowing like a stream!

Oooohhh we gotta watch these two! She's got that look in her again!

He saw some puffs that somehow missed his mouth during his snack and knew he shouldn't let them go to waste! Once he got in, he sat and ate how ever many were down there (hope it was all puffs!) and then made his way out like it was no big thing. Audrey hasn't even figured out that trick yet. Score one for James!
I was telling someone just this morning how he sits up on his knees instead of his rear and I believe it is because his head is so big! He struggles all the time keeping his balance with that big old noggin. Bless his heart. He has about 4 blue/black marks on his forehead from where he topples over because he can't get his balance. I can only hope he eventually grows out of this. I don't think they will let you play football if you keep falling on your head. Wait a minute, maybe the big head will be my ticket OUT of that one and on to something a bit safer that his daddy likes!!

We had a luncheon for Shannon on Friday morning (more about that in another post) and my son (being the only male there) was a huge hit! He's already a ladies man and can't even walk yet! The day of the wedding was a long one, just like any other wedding, but we had a good time! We should of had a jar for us to put pennies in every time one of our straps popped off or someone needed their bow re-tied. We could have paid for Shannon and Brett's tank of gas to their honeymoon destination with those pennies! The wedding was beautiful and I am so thankful that I got to be there and to be a part of it! Going home always gets me real homesick and reminds how much I miss everyone I grew up with. But I am thankful for the times I do get to see everyone, even if they are few and far between.
I had so many good pictures I decided to make a video instead of spreading them out over a few posts. But while going through the pictures I realized I didn't get any of the groom (sorry Brett!)or any of the bride and groom after the wedding. Oh well, hopefully somebody somewhere took some and will be kind enough to send 'em my way!

We have some 40 days left until we go to the polls and vote on probably the most crucial election our nation has ever been faced with. I wont speak everything that's on my mind about the issue because since your reading my blog there is a 99.999% chance that you know what I mean and share my opinions. But I will say let us all be in constant prayer that our next president will be a praying, God-honoring, God-fearing, stable minded man who will seek God's guidance and that the PEOPLE of The United States of America will do the same.

Every time I take his picture now he makes this face first!
Notice what or rather WHO she is stepping on!

Long story short: James has to have a band-aid on his finger. He is fine but his mama and daddy are still recovering! It took us 3 times and probably 20 band aids before we could finally get something on him that would stick.(FYI: Just go ahead and buy the $4 box of band aids, one day it will be worth it!)Thankfully his "incident" happened just before bed time so as soon as we got some band aids on, we fed him and put him to bed. The next day he kept putting his hand in his mouth and getting the band aid off so I had to put a sock over it. Well of course he found a way to get that off so we safety pinned the sock to the sleeve of his p.j.'s and I took off to Wal-Mart for some heavy duty band aids and we now have any thing you could ever need in a 1st aid kinda way in our bathroom closet! Watching him play and try to eat with that sock over his little hand made me short of breath every time. He was so pitiful. Not because he was crying but because he was so brave. He didn't fuss about not being able to use that hand, he learned that he couldn't so he was eating and drinking with one hand. Jon said he reminded him of a civil war solider that had had his hand blown off and was left with just a nubbin!
Yesterday when Jon got home he took the band aid off to let his finger air out and the poor little buddy was going around gently poking things with that finger to see if it still hurt! We went out side last night and Jon put James up on his shoulders. James usually grips Jon's hair with both hands but Jon said this time he only felt the left hand and two fingers from the right hand. (Are you crying yet?!)
