He's a trooper

James had blood work done today. He is such a trooper. ....he was starting to fall asleep.

A Sister Returns!!

I am so happy to announce that Sister Hilary Bitsoe has returned from her Mission in Spokane, WA. I have yet to see her, but I cannot wait to see her. On Monday afternoon I drove to her neighborhood and posted some signs that I made for her they were simple and not fancy what so ever but I hope that she saw them :)

I know the pictures are not the best.... Okay they are horrible! Little James was waking up and just super fussy. So I had to snap them while trying to soothe him. They read Welcome Back Sister Bitsoe! I have missed Hils so much I am so excited she's back. So much has happened in a year and a half!!

My new addiction!!

I have a new addiction!! I LOVE Butterfinger Ice Cream made by Dreyer's! It is absolutely delicious! I have a bowl of ice
cream every night, I know sounds extremely unhealthy! It's now throne food that I crave like crazy!!

If you have not tried this tub of heaven I highly recommend it! :)

Two Months Old

Little James is now TWO months old!! My oh my how time flies! My Little baby boy is growing up so fast! I have grown to love him more than I could have ever expected! Last month I decided that I would find a whole months worth of new things I have grown to LOVE, adore, and absolutely can't live with out that my Baby James does.
For Month TWO:
1. I love that he is growing {SUPER FAST}!
2. I love that he knows who I am.
3. He Only cries when he is hungry, has air, or needs a diaper change.
4. He loves the sound of Rain, it puts him to sleep!
5. He loves to sleep naked... :)
6. I love that he fits into his three month old clothes perfectly
7. Baby James loves the bath, he can sit in it for hours if I let him. It really does calm him.
8. I am so excited that his Collapsed Eye Duct is no longer collapsed. Thank goodness for medicated ointment.
9. James gets a really dry stuffy nose (from the elevation), it reminds me that he is not perfect.
10. He is a shy bug when it comes to the camera.
11. I love that he holds my hand (finger).
12. Car rides calm him.
13. He knows his Daddy.
14. His sleeping schedule is off, but it works with mine. I am not the best morning person so I love that he sleeps in!
15. I love that Logan is now getting comfortable with him, James will now fall asleep in his arms.
16. Although James does not like to change his clothes [what baby does?] he lets me change him and only moans when I change him.
17. Socks are too small for his feet.
18. Afternoon naps keep him a happy boy!
19. I know this is one from last month but must be added... He really is a quiet baby!
20. Although he is having some bilirubin level troubles, he is handling blood work like a trooper! Every prick is terrible to watch and yes he cries but two minuets later its like nothing ever happened.
21. When he lays on my bed in the morning he watches the fan! Super cute!
22. No Major diaper rashes... Yet.
23. Little James lets anyone hold him...and shares smiles... if he's awake.
24. He loves to sleep through Church. I know that his sweet little Spirit is still so close to Heavenly Father, I can feel His love through little James every day.
25. He is Handsome like his Dad.
26. Holding his head up is this months biggest accomplishment!
27. On the count of Three he stands, or at least tries to.
28. Chunky thighs are ADORABLE!
29. When he scrunches he has back rolls.
30. I love everything about him, Logan and James are my two best blessings I have ever received.

....oh how I cannot wait for another month with my Little man, he and Logan complete me.

Happy 4th of July!

This year James was able to celebrate his first Fourth of July! We really didn't do much, we all slept in so we missed the parade. James is on an odd sleep schedule so we (him and I) stay up until midnight or sometimes later and wake up around nine or ten! It's super tough! Well Logan and I were able to go downtown and walk around in the wonderful weather we were having! We stopped and had lunch at one of Logan's favorite Restaurants, San Felipe's it was delicious! we then walked to the new Candy store and picked up a Caramel apple! I am so excited that there is a store that makes delicious caramel apples!! We made it home and relaxed, at sundown we drove to the mall area and watched the fireworks! Logan and I weren't expecting the best show, but it was wonderful! James slept through most of it. He woke up for the last 10 mins and loved the lights! it was super cute! I cannot wait until he is older so he can understand whats going on! :)
