It has been fun watching James blossom as he settles into his new home. He no longer walks slow, or like Michael says, like an old man. James now walks with a bounce in his step and talks A LOT. Those who phone us can attest to that! Changing stinky diapers is not fun, so twice James went on the toilet with his parents cheering as if he won the lottery!
It is a guarantee that if one of us is in the kitchen the shadow (aka: James) will be there expecting food! And he'll shout, "Yum!" continuously when he eats! He likes to pretend he is sleeping and loves to entertain us with his singing and humming. We often ask him if he attended the school of fine arts in Liberia! He can sing his ABC's and we think he sings the song "Amen". He is now learning to sing O Canada for his mere (my mom). James has had a battery of tests done (ultrasound, x-rays, blood work). So far the only thing the doctors have detected is that his is low on iron. The care we have gotten has been awesome.
Parker, now 3.5 months, is enjoying his big brother's entertainment. Three nights in a row Parker has only woken up once in the night and during the day he can now fall asleep on his own. (Prior to James mommy would cuddle and hold Parker during nap times!) Parker is cooing and still has a very calm and cool disposition!
As for Michael and I we are having lots of fun hanging out with our boys. By the end of the day we are both wiped and grateful to have these two blessings in our lives!
