James took his first steps on Friday night, and it was the coolest!!

It's the most amazing experience to watch him learn and discover new things everyday. He vocabulary has exploded and he says well over 20 words, I love hearing him say new things everyday. Balloon, door and here are the latest additions.

Watching him toddle around warms and breaks my heart all at the same time. As he becomes more independent, I loose my baby. The walking is totally a milestone that means he's not my little baby anymore.

On Saturday I cried as he proudly marched around the kitchen. My heart bursting with pride, love and the realization of time passing right before my eyes. I can honestly say I've cherished every single moment we've spent together. And feel beyond blessed that I'm with him all day everyday. Sometimes I'm physically tired, but want to be with my sweet boy to celebrate and appreciate every moment and milestone as he grows into the young man God created.

This weekend was a chance for us to look towards the future for James while honoring his daddy's past. It was Josh's 15 year high school reunion. Which brought on a fun filled day of campus tours, concerts and catching up with wonderful friends, at one of our fav old date spots, Pane Rustica.

We can't wait for James to follow in his daddy's footsteps. Here's a pic of him in the football locker room with daddy's old jersey #.

We hope he'll be running on this field one day!

Can't believe how fast time is flying by, but loving every moment.
