james is 2 now!

He's actually not really growing too much, but he is older!


Happy Birthday James! He had his birthday on Thursday, but we didn't tell him it was his birthday. It was so crazy, all day he kept saying, 'Happy birthday mom?!' ALL DAY! He had some sort of 6th sense for the day. I felt so mean. But I didn't want to tell him it was his birthday because we had a birthday planned for Saturday. So we were just going to pretend that Saturday was his birthday. Then Friday he maybe asked once or twice. So weird.


He had a great little party on Saturday. We roasted hot dogs at Grandma's and had cake. For the first half it was Alli James and the rest just adults, then Regan and Rhonda with kids came late. Let me tell you how great an all adult party is. Actually, I don't even have to tell you, just think it. Yep, it's that good. Yet, somehow there was still a huge mess following.


I also went ALL OUT and did a 'theme' cake. (all out as in I've never really done one.) This was the absolute easiest one I could find. And what do ya know? James happens to slightly love 'game shirts.' The color is so not right and Derek didn't approve, but I thought the color of toothpaste would be just right.

James is such a great kid. He is so full of energy and is sooooo particular about the way he wants things these days. I could do a huge post about all the things this kids comes up with. It's a good thing he talks so well so he can tell me the ridiculous things he wants. He's a little bit crazy about it sometimes, but that's why we love him!

I think the cake is adorable! And kids don't know the difference in color! Pretty soon I'll be doing the same thing!

happy birthday james. As if he's 2 already?!
I love that you're measuring his height on the wall. I could guess exactly where that is in the Steed house! It's my favorite wall in all of Raymond. I'm going to start my own one day...

James reminds me of Derek (I can picture Derek at 2 with a sweet little mullet) The cake looks awesome! You REALLY out did yourself. So, you just ignored his 6th sense of birthday.. How dare you? If Sadie talked a little more I think she would say she misses James and Happy Birthday.
