Happy Mornings!

I have thoroughly enjoyed Mr. James in the mornings lately. As grumpy as he is in the evenings, he is equally happy in the mornings. I hate that Eddie misses it because it's SO fun right now!

Typically, James eats sometime between 4-6 AM. After I feed him and change his diaper he goes back to sleep for another 2-3 hours. We usually get up between 8-9 AM each morning. Sometimes a little earlier, sometimes a little later. When he wakes up, sometimes even before he's fed, he likes to "talk" to me. This has just begun to happen. He's done the smiling thing for weeks and weeks (you know, all of like four) but has JUST started to make little talking noises as well. Mostly it's vowel sounds (and there's the English teacher in me...). This morning I was able to get an "ahh-goo!" out of him. Usually he'll "talk" and stop and wait for me to respond. I've been copying his noises to talk back. He thinks it's hilarious and smiles a full-face smile and then makes another noise. He's on the verge of laughing, I can feel it!

I've tried to capture some of the talking on video but haven't been all that successful yet. It's just lots of waiting and then two or three seconds of talking. I guess I need to make sure I have my video camera nearby for our morning chats!
