A little bit of cruising

He stands and shows off :)

I'm Mobile!

So James has learned a great deal in the last week or so. He was already pulling up and cruising furniture, but not much else. Last week, in the same day, he figured out how to crawl and sit himself up from being on his belly. IT WAS ABOUT TIME! HA! Anyway, a couple of days ago he figured out how to cruise the walls too. Soooo, lucky me, I spent a lot of Stake Conference literally "walking the halls" with James. Here he is walking the halls at home. I'm pretty sure I'll never sit down again.

Why won't he eat real food?

I don't know how many different kinds of finger friendly foods I have tried, this child won't eat them! He will eat ANY FLAVOR of baby food, including green veggies, broccoli and chicken, etc., but he won't eat any thing with texture. If there is the tiniest lump in his food he spits it out and swallows the rest. Well, actually he will "beg" for food off of our plates, and occasionally he'll actually keep it in his mouth-this weekend he ate some tiny pieces of chicken from 5 Brothers and some noodles from beef stroganoff. He has eaten a couple of little pieces of graham cracker and cereal bars, but that's it. He will not pick up food and put it in his mouth, though apparently he feels my slippers have an exquisite taste! yuck!

James got this Animal Train for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Swan. He just didn't open it until January 6th :) (Which is somewhat appropriate since that's Dia de los Reyes and we do live in the Southwest...) Anyway, he ended up getting so many great presents from family that we didn't even give him the present we bought for him. Its in his bedroom, still wrapped in Santa paper-and it will be his first birthday present!

Here's a few of James' first Christmas. We did more videoing than photographing. This is at Granny and Paw paw's house. Don't you just want to eat him up? :)
