Socks, Shower, Stephenson's

We have had a very fun week, James is doing something different every day it seems.  Recently he's been squealing super loud, then acting surprised that such a loud noise came from his mouth!  He's also been turning over in his bed from tummy to back so often that it's interfered with his sleep!  He instantly rolls over when I put him down on his stomach, but then cries because he can't fall asleep on his back...very frustrating!  However, when we put him on his play mat outside of his crib, he acts like he doesn't know how to roll over and instead just does the superman/swim and cry!  ugh!  hopefully he'll correlate the two soon.  :-)

James was so excited to see his daddy on Friday and has been all smiles all weekend.  He can't keep his eyes off of him, and squeals and smiles when daddy gives him kisses!  It's seriously adorable!  Here are some pics from this week. 

Thanks to Grandma Sue for these cute socks!  Mommy put me in this adorable outfit and I had so much fun...good thing Daddy was away at school because he thinks this looks silly.  I, however, love to show off my chubby legs! 
My friend Jenny (left) is having a baby in August and Nicole (right) threw her an awesome baby shower today.  Jenny and her husband are moving back home to California next month, and I will miss her so much.  She and I met at church and have been in the Military Wives Bible Study for the past two years together, she has such a strong faith and is such a joy to be around, I'm selfishly sad to see her go.  However, her husband got a great job as Active Duty National Guard and they will be an hour and a half or less from all their it's a good move for them and their new baby girl! 
Another great friend from church, Theresa (right) is moving away too.  Her husband got this crazy amazing job as a helicopter tour pilot on Maui, Hawaii...that's right.  How wonderful is that??!!  She has been such a great friend and mentor, I'm sad to see her go too!  But again, all of their family lives in Hawaii, so it's a great move for, who wouldn't want to live there?  right!  Arianna, their daughter (left) is staying in TN to finish school, so at least we'll have some of the Gerry-Hamp family still around!  :-)
He is such a joy.  Love Love Love
The Stephenson's came over for dinner tonight.  It had been way too long since we've gotten together.  Dinner was delicious and the kids were a delight.  James and Shane are so stinkin cute...look how much they have changed in just a couple months (see pics below)!

Check out the cheeks on my boy!  he's trimmed down a little in the last few months. 

I know this isn't the best picture, but look at those blue eyes!  wow!  Thanks to Grandma Sue and Grandpa Steve for those baby blues.
