Happy Birthday!

Today we celebrated James' second birthday with monkeys!
Hm, what's this?
Blowing out the candle.
Yay! I did it!
Now the important part - the eating!

Raking Leaves

That's what they were supposed to be doing.

This is what I saw instead.

Doesn't James look pleased?

Apparently there's a weight limit for wheelbarrow rides. James is under, I'm over. I don't think that's quite fair!

Butterfly Fun

Today we went to the Frederik Meijer Gardens to see the butterflies and walk around the grounds, to take advantage of the nice weather.

This is the butterfly hatchery. Look at all the chrysalis(es?)!

Some of the butterflies enjoying a little food and sun.
James and Daddy walking around.
Getting down for a closer look.
Something caught his eye here. It may have been a bird, not a butterfly.

Butterfly Fun II

This is James dressing up like a butterfly.
He wasn't interested in photo opportunities.
See how nice he stayed in Daddy's arms for a photo?
This is what mom got - an escapee.
He's actually crying here. Ingrate.

This morning

This is what we woke up to this morning.
Apparently he can take his pyjamas off.

Photo Session

I just wanted a nice photo of James to show off his Carharts and his new hair cut. I didn't think that was too much to ask.

First he dropped to his knees and started "walking" towards me.

I got him stopped, so he stuck his hand in his mouth.

Then he crawled to me.

I got him sat down and asked him to "stay". He listened as well as the dogs do. He scooted on his bottom across the floor to me.

It's the best I could do!
