My Little Boy


Grace took the two above pictures! Pretty good for a 4 year old I say!!


I had some posts that I had been planning on posting tonight but this little boy needed some attention!! OK so I wanted to give the attention. Tonight as we were preparing dinner and Jimmy was planning the FHE (Family Home Evening) lesson a loud crash followed by a cry came from the front room, I instantly ran to find Jimmy with James scooped in his arms and as he turned to look at me his eye was blue and swollen like a ping pong! My Dad and Jimmy ministered a priesthood blessing and then Jimmy and I loaded him up in the car and made a trip down to the quick care. We checked in and waited to be seen and as I looked down at James, who was sitting on the floor at this point, I noticed that his eye was less swollen and he seemed to be acting just fine. In fact he was so fine that he took the wash cloth that we had been holding to his eye and was using it to clean the tile floor, YUCK! Then he was laying flat on his stomach pretending to swim or something, Jimmy and I turned to each other and knew he was fine, so we gathered our things and headed home. I should have gotten a picture of what it looked like right after, but who is thinking about pictures when their child is possibly severely hurt, so this is about 90 minutes after he hit the edge of a coffee table when the swelling had gone down and he was laughing over and over at me balancing a lens cap on my head! I love his smile and his laugh!

Poor little guy! I hate when my babies get hurt. Oh my gosh to his laugh though. He has the cutest cackle!

Oh my gosh..his laugh is so cute!! He is so sweet. I'm sorry about the big bruise. Glad he's ok!
Had fun at the park with you and Gentry the other day. Wish she'd come in town more often. :)

I'm so sorry, there is nothing worse then having one of our little ones get hurt, but I'm glad he is okay. Oh the joy of boys! :) If only we could put padding all around out kids. HAHA

That first picture is priceless! And his laugh is hilarious. Clair was sitting next to me and kept thinking it was her. Don't ask me why? I told her it was James. So now she is saying, "Dat's James!" over and over. :-)
