I just realized that my last two posts have been about James and his behavior, timeouts, etc. I hope I haven't made it seems like James is a total nutcase. I mean, sure he's mischievous, into absolutely everything and occasionally moody, but on top of being a toddler, he's a Bednarczyk. Adam claims that he and his father only grunted to communicate for several years in his childhood, so the fact that James uses some words is a step in the right direction.
Aside from his toddler moments, James is a happy go lucky sort of kid. He's a big helper and loves to chase the dog. He really likes pony rides on my knee right now, and will finally sit down and listen to a whole book being read. I think he's cutest when wearing footie pajamas and I love to hug him. Nothing makes him happier than sitting on the kitchen counter and getting his teeth brushed.
When all the stress of life is getting me down, all I have to do is look at my baby boy and its all forgotten. I really do love being his mom.
