baby james {11 months}

How did this happen?  My little baby is growing up so fast!  The one year mark is fast approaching.  It is SO fun to interact with James now and play together.  He loves to play (alone or with us).  He likes “high 5”, reading (or turning the book’s pages), all the toys that light up and play music, things he can bang on, opening cabinet doors and drawers, and playing chase in his little car.  Grandma, you’ll like this post- it’s heavy on the baby pics:)

He’s all big boy in the highchair when we go to restaurants now. 
Not walking yet, just “cruising” the furniture and starting to stand unassisted. 
Hold on Mom, I have an important call to make.
Let me play you some tunes.
He’s really good at putting the rings on and off now.
Smooches from Daddy!
Drinking bottles by himself.
Looooves clapping hands.
Oh, yes, whenever we open the fridge, he’s immediately there.
But he’s always after the remote control.  Such determination!
got it!

Let's be friends!

hmmm, how do you work this thing?
I try to get him to play with His computer and toys.
But he’s always back to the remote.

    He is so sweet. I love his little smile:)

    Love how fascinated he is by the remote…such a guy! 😉 He is just adorable, Megan. 🙂

    So true about how fast they grow up! And that dang remote!

  4. February 10, 2011 / 2:01 am

    Little James is beautiful! Love on him lots…they grow up way to fast!

  5. February 10, 2011 / 2:05 am

    What a cutie! Times just goes too fast. I have been saying I would like to freeze mine right where they are… at least for a while. =)

  6. February 10, 2011 / 2:32 am

    I can't believe how much he has grown!! Look much more like a toddler than a baby now. I know we spent too much on toys for ours, and they were more than happy to play with the remotes, keys and cardboard boxes!! LOL

  7. February 10, 2011 / 2:40 am

    Oh gosh….the remotes. Arghhh! And we have about 5 of them just out and about. I wonder how many times a day I pick them up? He's sooo adorable! I can't wait to give him some french fries and nuggets. And maybe a sip of coke. Are you hyperventilating yet?

  8. February 10, 2011 / 4:06 am

    He is such a doll and I love hair!

  9. February 10, 2011 / 5:57 am

    I LOVE that I'm not the only one who is still drinking out of my Starbucks candy cane glass!

    He is so cute! Too bad we don' live closer we could set him up with my daughter Lucy. She has her first birthday on Friday and she loves the remote too! We were at a play date Monday and she picked up their remote and began aiming at the tv- I think I turned bright red from embarrassment ; )

    Is James adorable or what! He is at such a fun age! I miss my boys at this age and I know you've heard this before…..they grow so fast! I can tell you are enjoying every minute of it! In the blink of an eye he'll be in highschool asking you which AP classes he needs to take to get into the best college in your state! {a day in my life!} God bless you, your hubby, James and future children! Oh and start praying for his future wife now! Kisses, Desiree

    So precious. I love when they hold their own bottle. There is something so dear about that. {ps . . . James, thanks for giving me a call on your cell phone. Good chattin' with you!}

    He is such a cutie! It is truly amazing how fast time flies once you have a little one! I think it is in boy's DNA to be all about the remote! Kason is darn right sneaky about finding it, hiding it, and changing the channels. 🙂

    Are you sure this post wasn't about Reid? Same things here -cruising, stair climbing, high fiving, and REMOTE OBSESSED. He even points it at the TV. Oh wait – it couldn't be about Reid – he doesn't have all that hair! 🙂

    Happy 11 months, James!

    So cute – my kids always hated the toy remote or phones – they knew the difference immediately. James is such a cutie!

    Happy 11 months to beautiful baby James! So funny when I open the fridge Sterling is there so quick too. I wonder why that intrigues them so much? He looks like such a grown-up little man! xoxo

  35. February 10, 2011 / 6:59 pm

    I just want to smoosh those cheeks! He is adorable Megan! Watch out world when that little boys gets his walking legs going ;-D.

    FYI, you will be guest posting on my blog on Friday. Just hopping over to finish up the post.

    What a cutie patootie! My youngest is 17 months and they go so fast. I just posted a picture today on my own blog with him using a t.v. converter as a phone. What is it with kids and their love of phones! Thanks for sharing such cute pics!

  39. February 10, 2011 / 8:43 pm

    So cute!!! My nephew is the same way about the remotes. Oh & don't let him get a glimpse of an iPhone. Once he sees it he has a one track mind trying to get it!!

    It's so funny how boys are so similar! Sam is always running off with the remote and taking stuff out of the fridge. And I love the one on the stairs!

  43. February 11, 2011 / 1:41 am

    I think you have the cutest little boy, EVER!!!

    Your little boy is adorable. You are such a proud Momma. I love the picture above the one of smooches from Daddy:)

  48. February 11, 2011 / 1:52 pm

    OMG, so cute! My little guy loves to munch on the bottom of his bottle, too. What little characters they are! I can't believe your little guy is almost 1!

    So cute! We have some of those same sleepers (the blue and white striped and the blue, brown and grey striped). Bet his blue eyes just shine in them. And loved your Super Bowl party decorations!

  50. February 12, 2011 / 5:50 am

    I felt like I was reading about my almost 14-month old daughter, especially with regard to the remote – lol! And my cell phone, too. And the computer mouse. 🙂 Sound familiar? Ha!

  51. February 12, 2011 / 5:12 pm

    James is adorable. My boys are 17 and 14, and I miss all that cuddly toddler stuff. Just discovered your blog. Looking forward to exploring it. I'm interested in your living room paint color/sofa color relationship. I have a similar color sofa and don't know what color to paint my walls.

    This post makes my heart happy. Holden has those same PJs. 🙂 This is such a fun age and James is just DARLING! You can tell he is such a sweetie and so happy. His first birthday will come quickly!
