Baby James at 6 Months

  I can't believe that my sweet little boy is now 6 months old.  It seems like it was just yesterday that we brought him home for the first time.  I remember looking at him in the hospital the day he was born and just realizing how this little person would change my life forever.  I can also remember all the months and years I prayed and cried out to God to send me a child.  Those were some of the hardest times of my life, but I am so thankful for every tearful night because they have helped me appreciate every second I have with my son.  I don't take a second with him for granted.  Even the times when he is crying at 2:00am, I am blessed to be rocking my baby back to sleep.  He is everything to me.  I just hope and pray that I can be the mother that he needs me to be.  Being a mother is such a huge honor.  Even more than that it is a huge responsibility.  I feel the weight of this responsibility each and every day.  I am constantly going before God and asking him to give me the strength and wisdom I need to raise this little boy.  In a world full of hurt and evil my initial reaction is to protect him forever.  I just want to keep him close to me forever and never let him go.  But I believe that God has great things to do with this little boy of mine.  I know he has a great purpose on this earth and I can't wait to see what it is.   Thank you Jesus for my sweet little miracle.  James, your momma is so in love with you. 

On a lighter note, this is the pre-bowel movement face that James gets right before he has a blow out.  (and yes, one second after this picture was taken we had a massive blow out, fun times).

He is always sucking on those toes.  This is one of my favorite things...pretty much everything he does is my favorite thing.

Right now James is SO close to crawling.  He pushes up on his arms and kicks his little feet.  He is scooting a little.  You're so close James!!

After he has been trying to crawl for a while he gets really tired and has to take a little break.  So cute.
These little legs never stop moving...seriously....they never stop.
Little man got his shots yesterday and it was sad, but he is so tough that it only bothered him for about 1 minute, then he was good.  In this pic he was really preoccupied with his band aids.  He wanted them off!

Please note the blur from his bff, Solie dog.
This dog has been killing me lately.  She has been eating food out of the trashcan on a regular basis this week.  She is so smart that it's stupid.  She knows how to open the door under the sink and get food out of the trashcan.  She is really sneaky about it and quietly takes it to the guest bedroom to devour.  Today I wrestled her to the ground to pull out a stick of string cheese.  Awesome. 
James would pretty much do anything to get Solie to recognize him.  Poor kid, she couldn't care less.
