Little Man...

Shortly before James turned 3,
All I could of was,
Lord Help Us!
He had the 3 year old attitude!
Now that he has been 3
for 2 months,
He is suddenly a changed boy!
I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
James has become quite the little thinker...
he loves to work hard at figuring something out.
He does not give up easily!
His 2 favorite things are 
putting puzzles together
and finding waldo in the 
Where's Waldo Books.
Lately I have heard him complain that his 
little 28 piece puzzles are too easy...
maybe its time to find some harder ones!
He is still wild and crazy...
but now we can reason with him
and he can restrain himself...
which is so, so nice!
Though some days I still loose hope.
Like last week,
when he shoved a little rock up his nose
while at the park!
No clue what possessed him.
And it was shoved up there far...
Just as visions of rushing him the ER
were creeping into my mind,
I was able to push on his nose
enough to get the little rock to 
come popping out.
Why, why, why
do boys do things like that!?
James is my little southern gentleman...
he always calls girls 
And Guys are always 
And little girls are 
Its too cute.
And he started to do it all on his own
which makes it 10x cuter.
So now we have conversations like this...
Me: "James, would you like some dinner now?"
James: "Yes, ma'am" 
{put food in front of him}
James: "Thank ya ma'am" 
Me: {melt} "Your welcome sir!"
James says he is doing school too this year.
He said writing "J" is too hard...
but he can make a perfect letter E! 
And we count...
on the abacus...
because he says that his school.
So we count the beads slowly as he moves
each bead from side to side.
His best buddy is 
his little sister...
when Angelina is napping,
I often find him laying in front of the bedroom door,
asking when she is going to wake up
because he wants to play with her!
Hands down,
my very favorite thing about James,
the thing I pray he never looses 
as he gets older...
his pure joy, zest and excitement for life!
He might put this little puzzle together for the 12th time
in a row...
but every single time,
he still jumps up and cheers when its done!
Last week he saw a container of his 
favorite chips in the store,
so right then and there,
he clapped his hands and let out a Big 
"WooWhoo" cheer and happy dance!
Life is exciting for this boy...
he finds joy in every single thing he encounters!
Never loose that little spark...
it makes you who you are!
