baby james (20 months)

Is our little baby actually turning into a toddler/little boy??  Ahhhh, where does the time go?  It’s so fun to see what he’s interested in and the best part is how much he’s talking and how he understands what we say to him.
He’s singing the ABC’s, counting to 10, singing Twinkle, Twinkle, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and talking in general.  Too many words to list in a blog post.  Is it weird that he says “Starbuck’s”?! 🙂  And he’s learned “no” – as in, “Ready for bedtime, James?” To which he sometimes replies, “No, no, no.” Or if we try to give him a bite of food he doesn’t want, “no, no, no.”  But the cutest is how he says, “okay” to everything. In the sweetest voice ever, like, “Oh-kaaay“.
Tantrums are upon us as well as the sweetest cuddles and “love yous”.  He runs, twirls around in circles, and climbs like a monkey.  I’m still mostly “Mana” but I love to hear his little voice say it.



















keep in touch!

  1. Megan! Can you believe how fast time has flown. James is precious. I always love looking at these photos.

  2. Hi Megan

    I've only commented about 3 times on your blog 🙂 but I had to comment on this post – I love seeing your home looking a bit like mine (babies messing) and not "perfect" 🙂

    The blog world leaves me feeling less than sometimes so I appreciate the look at real life!

    James is gorgeous!!!!!

  3. He's already a man of many trades – so talented! 🙂 As always, love the posts you do with James. He couldn't get any cuter!! I love the pic of him with the play dough looking up at his dad – his eyes are lit up!! love it!

  4. I love that you're a messy mom. So frustrating to me when I was a nanny and preschool teacher to hear people say "No, we can't do that. It will make a mess."

    Dude. That is why God invented indoor plumbing and washing machines. Let them make a mess.

  5. he's a busy little guy! and so talented! painting, cooking, coloring. Now if you can teach him to do laundry you'll be set! He's so cute!!

  6. Time is in overdrive now! Wow — getting so big…looking so much like daddy!! hope you two had a great weekend! xo

  7. Hi megan! Love your blog! I'm a long time real life friend of courtney (thoughful place)and we speak so often of your blog that i refer to you by name. 🙂 Where did you find your kitchen runners? Love them!

  8. He's turning into such a little man already! So cute to see all of the things he's been up to!

  9. Sorry this question is random (both in its topic and given the fact that this post is several months old… but I'm reading through your blog backwards), but can you please tell me where you got your kitchen runners? They look like they'd be a great fit in my kitchen.
