Welcome to 2 months!
I can't decide if you look cuter in the picture above or the picture below, so I'll just have to show both of them!

Lan and I are going to Cracker Barrel tonight for dinner and one of our church ladies is keeping him. Ya'll, he is so cute and I love him so much - I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!!
The rice cereal is working GREAT. Except that I think now he doesn't want to eat quite as much for most meals. He seems fuller faster. Alright, here are a few new pictures...
James playing on the tummy time mat cousin Amy gave us. We haven't put water in it yet...I don't feel like cleaning that up - but it seems to serve the same purpose even without water :)
James in the kitchen with me today...getting ready to bake brownies. I was singing songs to him. I was trying to sing some upbeat ones - ha, I was trying to remember like some old Carmen or DC Talk - but hello, the only songs I could think of were Can't Touch This, the first verse to Ice Ice Baby, and Rockin' Robin. I have got to work on my repoirte (is that how you spell this??). But, he seems to like it - probably because I look like a fool - ha.

Today we went to meet Cliff, April, Mac, Sydney, and Emma Kate for lunch at OK Cafe. Um, can I just mention again it's one of my favorite eating places? Vegetable plate...mmm....it is good. Alright! I'm doing RB&Co. work so I gotta get back to it, but just wanted to update on things. Here are a few pictures too :)
Landon cleaned out the car yesterday morning. James went with him out there since it wasn't hot yet. I don't know why it cracks me up, but it just does. James just sat there and looked around while Lan worked. Don't you think that's funny? It's like he's with us all the time, just doing normal stuff - ha. He's our baby - ha.
And, we got some Gator onesies for him - which are already a little tight.... but here's the first one he's worn. We've been prepping him for football season - you know, playing the fight song, etc. Now that these NFL preseason games have been on, I've even heard Landon telling him what players are former Gators.

James is always so much fun on the changing table in his room. For some reason, it seems like it's his favorite place - he is always the cutest there, looking around, smiling, and cooing. Landon videoed him about to get his diaper changed - I know it's not that exciting (because Landon told me it wasn't), but it's exciting to me...and maybe the grandparents...
So, that's pretty much what's going on with us. Other than that, James is great. He is smiling and cooing and just growing away - thank goodness he still wants to eat and fights through the reflux to get food! We are going to the dr. today just to do a weight check and for her to take a look at him. I love our pediatrician - do you know she actually called me on the phone last night to talk to me about James??? Are you kidding me?
Here are some sweet new pictures below... (and, btw, Landon and I doing fine :) We actually went on a date last Friday night, so that was fun - but still hard to leave). Landon has been working a ton so that's been kind of hard but he's doing such a great job at the church - I have never seen him come up with such creative ideas before. I still haven't started on my thank you notes for things I received since James arrived...I promise I'm going to write them though!! It's just hard to find time!
Gotta go brush my teeth and wash my face before he wakes up - this will be a great improvement from doing it at like 3pm :)

Other than the spit up through nose situation, James is good and just growing fast. I don't think he is a very content baby though. In each 3 hour cycle during the day, I probably get 10 minutes that he is just content to play with his infant gym or sit in my lap and look at a book. Usually he is either eating or sleeping or fussing because he wants to do one of those things. He keeps me busy, for sure. Mandy suggested I try Baby Einstein DVD's and so we bought 3 of them for really cheap on ebay last night. He is sleeping about 5 hours at night probably 3/4 of the time. We had a couple of rough nights a few nights ago, but then last night he slept 5 hours, so that was great! And, last night he went right back to sleep after I fed him after the 5 hours. He is getting bigger and bigger, and cuter and cuter!!
The first week we had him home, we took him to have his pictures made with our new photographer, Rene Lowrance. She was fantastic! We love to use Joy Wilson, a friend of mine since we moved to Woodstock, but since she's in Nashville, I was worried about how it was going to work trying to get her back here to take the pictures on demand when he came! Rene was recommended to me by Mandy, and she did an awesome job! The only thing is that you don't get a CD with the images...which I always want. So, I'm hoping Joy might offer something like that sometime this year when she's home in Atlanta, and we could get some pictures that we could actually have the CD of. ANYWAY, I've wanted to talk about Rene's pictures, but I wasn't sure how to show them without doing something I wasn't supposed to do - like taking screenshots and posting them - so I decided to do this. I went and picked up the prints yesterday that I ordered from her. I put most of them in frames last night, and so I took pictures of them in the frames so I could show them on here - I hope that's okay!
Aren't they sweet???
