I ran into one of James' preschool teachers in the hallway on Friday while I was there picking up Blake. Friday was Chiefs day and for snack time his class had a "tailgate party" with nachos. She told me that he ate 4 helpings of nachos! This didn't surprise me at all because he can EAT! As part of football day they also took turns weighing themselves on a scale for fun. James weighed in at 38 lbs which was more than anyone else in his class. He is also one of the younger boys too. Ha! I think he is deceptively "big" because he is also tall! He is just one solid and sturdy 2 year old! Atleast he'll be able to hold is own on the playground. :-)
Todd's sister Ashley gave us some Swedish candy cars and James loves them. He requests them after each meal. The funny thing is he would much rather play with them than eat them. It is definitely a good time killer while I'm cleaning up the kitchen. I've also been trying to capture James saying "yes" on camera and I got it on this video. It sounds like "da" and we think it is so cute!
Seth got a new dog last spring. A HUGE dog. She is a bernise mountain dog. Seth lives 5 minutes from our house and James loves to go visit Timber. On this occasion he decided to get in the Timber's kennal which is also HUGE!
Here are some pictures of James before his first day of school! He was very excited and had a great day. He had gotten a bug bite Tuesday night on his ear but we really didn't notice it Wednesday morning. It got redder and more swollen throughout the day. The pictures are from the morning and the video is after we got home with the big red ear!
Blake, you are 3 months old today! You are such a good and easy baby. You are doing so many new things this month! -This morning we went in your room and you had rolled on to your tummy. We knew you were going to do it anytime! -You still take several short and long naps throughout the day and don't have a real schedule yet. -You are sleeping great at night. Most nights you sleep from 8pm-6am. -You had a growth spurt the 3rd week of August and wanted to eat all the time, but after 3 days you were back to eating every 3-3 1/2 hours during the day. -You LOVE your swing and we just got a 2nd one to keep on the main floor. -You laugh, smile and talk to us all the time. -Your hair is REALLY falling out. We were all just getting used to having a brunette in the family, but it is all going to fall out. --When I run my hands through your hair it just falls out in my fingers. I'm finding little brown hairs everywhere! The new hair is very light blonde. -You are very drooly. You will drench a bib or outfit in a matter of minutes. -You are starting to reach and grab for things. Once you grip something you really hold on tight. You love to hold on to your blankets -You are starting to suck your thumb all the time in just the last week. Here are some more pictures from the last month! I just realized they are alot of Blake in the same chair. He sits there a lot! :)
