Birthday Month

Guess who has a birthday this month... go on, guess! Here are some clues:

- it's a boy (really narrows it down, huh)
- he is adorable
- he is taller than the youngest member of the family
- he has my blue eyes
I bet you know who it is...
Yup, Jamers turns 2 at the end of the month! Makes me kind of sad, not going to lie. But also happy because I just love watching him every day learn new things and be hilarious. Seriously, the kid is entertaining. Since we will be leaving for California sometime next week and won't be back till after his birthday, I figured I would do a little post now of what James is like at almost two.
- loves to say the ABC's. Mind you, he just repeats us as we say them... but he still loves it
- he likes us to spell whatever is on his shirt and he likes to point out random letters in the car
- can count to 10, sometimes 13 (we have 13 stairs in our house). This he can do basically all on his own
- knows shapes: star (which say "twinkle twinkle"), circle, heart, square, and triangle
- his two favorite things to say lately: "thank you" and "you're welcome". though "your're welcome" is a little garbled... but most of his words still are :)
- favorite (and basically only) sentence to say: "going to get you!"
- LOVES to read books. storytime is loooooong at night because he'll get us book after book. hard to say no when he loves books
- has a favorite movie right now: "How to Train Your Dragon". we watch this almost every day. i probably give in more than i should because i also love this movie :)
- still loving his little bro. gets so excited to see him in the morning
- is busy, busy, busy, busy. keeps us on our toes, that is for sure
- so great at going to nursery. we have had hardly any problems dropping him off. he just walks right in and doesn't look back. so awesome
- the boy is a love. he will go to anyone, hug almost anyone, give kisses... he just loves everyone. instead of hitting the others in nursery, he apparently chases the other kids around trying to hug them
There's much, much more, but you get the idea. He is such a wonderful little boy, I feel so blessed to be his mommy. He lights up our life and has such a loving spirit. James know how to make anyone laugh and puts a smile on just about everyone's faces.  James is a certain keeper :)
