Today, Gavin and I went to paint some pottery with Allison and Elijah, and Denise and Emerson!  We had a great time.  I have been wanting to do this for a while and it was lots of fun!  The kids mainly snacked while us girls painted.  Here are some pictures from our outing. I plan to use the plate to put Gavin’s smasher cake on for his birthday!  It will be here before we know it!!!!  We go back in a couple of weeks to pick up the finished product, so I will put more pics up when it is all glazed and pretty!!!

My First Kickball Game: Gavin Speaking…

Filed under: Uncategorized — thejamesfam @ 4:31 pm

I went to my first kickball game on yesterday.  My mommy used to play kickball with a team called the Hot Tamales.  Yesterday was the finals and my mommy’s old team was in the championship game.  They came on the field in a fire truck.  It was pretty loud and a little scary!  I did take some pictures with my fire chief hat on and even was named Junior Firefighter for the day!!!  It was fun and mommy’s team won the Championship!  YEAH HOT TAMALES!!!!!!!

Here Comes the Fire Truck

Here I am sitting on the fire truck with mommy!

This is me with Mommy’s friend Miss Amanda.  She was dressed up like a firefighter!

Well, Gavin is now nine months old and he stays busy all the time!!!  He has two teeth that finally showed up last month.  He is cruising all over the place around anything he can get his hands on.  He has even taken a few steps on his own!!!  They just grow up way too fast!!!!  Gavin is the happiest baby that I know!  He is almost always smiling and laughing at something!  He is starting to try out real food, and likes just about anything.  He likes to feed himself finger foods.  These are just a few of the things that Gavin is into these days.  Here are some recent pictures.


Hey, where did my other puff snack go???

Just call me Prince Charming!

Play time…
