James has now experienced his first Thanksgiving - although he slept through most of it. We went to my mom's house in Huntsville for the day and after sleeping very little in the car on the way up he was pretty much pooped by the time we got there. Everyone wanted to see him and play with him and he was zonked in the back bedroom. We finally woke him up after about a 2 and half hour nap so he could meet his cousin, Mallory. She was excited about meeting "baby James". She had a fun time holding and kissing him and helping feed him but then she wanted us to put him on the floor so they could "play". We told her it would be a little bit longer before he could do that but I know they will be running around together before we know it. She also wanted to take him home - she's at that age where she loves playing with babies so what better than a real live one to take home! too sweet!
Yesterday James helped me decorate the Christmas tree - well, really he and Charlie just sat in the chair and watched but we had fun! Then I decided to put his Christmas jammies (thanks Aunt Debby:)) on and try to take some pictures by the Christmas tree - Charlie decided he wanted to be included as well as you'll see -
My little chubby elf!
Here comes Charlie trying to sneak in the picture -
We couldn't get them to both look at the camera at the same time!
James still has a hard time keeping himself upright for very long. As we were taking his picture he started to lean to the right and before we knew it he was down - we cracked up when he saw how his arm was wrapped around Charlie -
We were attempting to try and get a picture of the back of James jammies and once again here came Charlie wanting to sneak in the picture -
