Some Good Reading

Here at the Steck house we only let James read the best. That includes the dictionary. ;-) He likes mama's book so I thought I'd give him a book just like mamas and it turned out to be a dictionary.
Some more good reading.

He's getting serious about this magazine.

Just Playing

Being plain ole silly
More silliness.
He's been laying in this spot like Dada does lately. Rog will lay down put the blanket on himself and James will climb all over him. Now James wants to be like Dada. Put his head on the pillow and pull the blanket over himself. So cute. Our little copycat.

Wedding in San Luis Obispo

Helping dig a hole in the sand. Roger was in a wedding for his good friend Jerry Thanksgiving weekend. It was on Avila Beach near San Luis Obispo. James loved the sand.
Daddy all dressed up. James had lots of kids to play with. He esp. liked the older girls who wanted to take care of him. It was so cute. He let them carry him around and everything. Lots of kids in this wedding including Jerry and Jen's baby girl. She fell asleep during the ceremony. So sweet.
James was too shy to dance, but he liked to watch.

Aunt Amy is Visiting!

Aunt Amy is visiting and James loves her! It's so great he isn't so shy anymore! Still saying Okie Dokey Doggie Dokie. Then laughing.

Gardening James

Tending to the garden.
Why are these gloves too big?

Floppy gloves on my hands.

James' New Bicycle

James loves his new bike. He now wears his helmet almost 24/7. I found his new bike at a huge used kids and baby sale they have in downtown Sacramento every six months called Just Between Friends. It was in really good shape for a used bicycle and was only $30. We've seen new ones average about $130. So, I think we did good.
James has been saying a lot of new words lately and has been saying a lot of phrases. He also has been making noises for his cars he plays with. So cute!

Being a Goofball in Mama's Hat

Goofy Boy!
Waiting for Dada to come home. Wow! It's getting dark early already. Shucks.
This one isn't as good as the others, but if you click on it to make it bigger you can see a lot of his new teeth coming in.
Super happy after his late nap.
Trying to get the camera.

Another Trip to AZ to See Great-Grandma

James and Dada watching the airplanes. While I'm posting this James is jumping up and down in my lap yelling "air pane"! This one must be going to Florida. I think that's where Shamoo or whatever that famous whales name is. Hopefully we will get some photos of our trip from Auntie Jen to post. She's been super busy though and getting ready for cousin Devin's birthday bash on Saturday. I can't believe he's going to be 1. Time flies when you have babies.

Climbing onto a BIG Motorcycle

Dada doesn't believe mama that James can climb on his bike all by himself. Mama has proof and here it is. I guess Dada better put his motorbike away in the garage.

Stacking Blocks

Learning how to stack blocks with daddy.
