2 Months of James: So Many Smiles!

This baby is so happy – yes, he is a baby so he still has his “moments”, but for the majority of the time that he’s awake and alert he is smiling, engaged, and full of joy. These past 2 months with him have been wonderful, and I finally feel now we’re *starting* to get […]
