Pictures from the past week

James sleeping peacefully in the car.

He is always so proud of himself when he rolls over on the changing table or in his bed.

On Tuesday James sat outside with me while I painted my nails. It was really hot so I spritzed him with a water bottle. He thought that was so much fun!
His favorite part about being outside is watching the trees sway in the wind.
Such a sweet little boy!

James at 5 months

I say he is 5 months old because he was born 20 weeks ago. Anyway, here are some things that I want to remember about him at this age:

* he wakes up in such a good mood...almost always smiling before his eyes open
* he really enjoys playing in his exersaucer or on a blanket on the floor
* he is starting to giggle when he finds a noise funny
* he seems to like rice cereal
* he is wearing 6-9 month clothes
* he still has difficulty falling asleep when he is too tired
* he recognizes his mommy and daddy
* he sleeps from 8PM-4AM then drinks a quick bottle and goes back to sleep until about 7
* he has decided that he does not want to be buckled in his carseat anymore and always arches his back when we try to put him in...he also cries most of the time he is in the car
* he discovered his hands and sucks on them constantly, he tries to suck on his toes but his legs are too long to reach his mouth
* all of his little quirks add up to make him a wonderfully unique little person and the joy of our lives. :)
