I put Jimmy to bed around 7:45 tonight, hoping he would go to bed early. I was down stairs talking to my brother around 8:15 and heard a bang, I knew he had thrown his cup of water out of the bed. So I headed up stairs to lay him back down, I opened the door to Jimmy jumping in his crib. Then I looked really close, his turtle, barney, blanket, and pillow were on the floor.....along with his CLOTHES!!!! He was in his bed in only his diaper! LOL!!! All he had to say was "mama!" I don't know how he got his shirt over his big head and his long pants off, but he sure was happy.

Lindsey Hill, a friend of mine for ten years now, is staying this week about 45 minutes from Panama City. I met Lindsey at Lutheran Happening of the South, back when I was in High School. We have stayed in touch over the years, and love to gossip about people that we know from the past. This afternoon I met up with two of Lindsey's college friends and Lindsey for shopping and dinner. It was so great to see you Lindsey!

Jimmy was calling "Mama mama"today, when I went into the other room his was standing there in Allan's shoes. He was so proud of himself and needed help to walk. I was even more proud that he had them on the right feet. Moseley has been sporting his daddy's shoes two lately, I swear those two boys must talk on the phone to each other when we are not looking.

Yesterday Allan, Jimmy and I drove over to Pensacola, Fl to pick up a tri-cycle that we purchased on Ebay for his mom. We thought she might enjoy being able to take a ride around on it. Jimmy slept most of the way there and was excellent on the way back. We were gone around 6 hours!

Rolling over the culligan water bottle
Jimmy kept imitating Chase crawling around and trying to walk. He thought he was so funny doing it, and kept looking at us for attention.

Two years ago today, we lost a true friend Kirk Tuck to his battle with Leukemia. Allan and Kirk had a special bond, like brothers. Kirk introduced Allan and myself to each other, and use to joke that we would name our first child after him. Little did we know that we would, James Tucker Branch. Allan and I often think of Kirk, and miss him dearly. We have stayed close with his parents, and enjoy their friendship.

Jimmy and I went to the mall to walk around this afternoon. By the time we went to leave it was raining cats and dogs, so I took him into the arcade to run around in the balloons. When he was done running around he went over to the race car game and climbed on up. He sat and pretended to drive for almost 30 minutes. He steered the car, pushed buttons, and changed gears....all without me even putting in a quarter. Jimmy was NOT happy when it was time to go and let everyone around know it! Growing up at my house whenever we went on vacation to Navarre Beach my dad would take us into the arcade and play video games. Watching Jimmy play today brought back so many happy memories.

Tonight Hubbell, Kevin and Chase came over to swim and eat dinner. They were sweet enough to bring some delicious hamburgers. The boys had a blast swimming and playing with Jimmy's blocks. Chase has just started walking, it is so cute to watch him make a few steps here and there. It just seems like yesterday that Jimmy was stumbling all over the place, now I can't get him to sit down for two minutes.
Kevin and Chase
Big Chase Man!
Jimmy was leaning over to look Chase right in the face :)

Today I took Jimmy to toddler skate to play on everyones different ride on toys. Jimmy was infatuated with two kids with roller skates on their feet. He was following them around looking at them like "what kind of shoes are those?". The skating rink only had size 8 skates so I tied them up tight on Jimmy. You would have thought I hung the moon, he was so excited. Of course I was the one doing most of the work, but he sure got a kick out of them. I guess our next purchase will be the skates that strap onto his shoes....and a helmet!

Jimmy has started helping me around the house. He feeds Murphy his food when we go out to play. When I am unloading the dishwasher he takes the tupperware to the cabinet. My favorite chore by far .... he cleans the lint out of the dryer and takes it little by little to the trash while I fold the clothes. He looks so proud when he does him and I tell him good job!

When it came time for Frankie to leave, Jimmy was broken hearted! I ended up having to hold him sideways as he tried to run out of my arms crying "Please, Please". Guess we will have to have a character come to his birthday party.
