James is getting very, very excited for Christmas--he keeps saying something about Geotrax that were born in a stable in Battle-ham. I don't know, it's hard to make it out.
Everywhere I turn, there seem to be happy little reminders that my kid is simply bubbling over with holiday happiness. For example:
James likes to select a favorite branch and move fifty-or-so ornaments to the very tip. I swear, if you listen really hard, you can actually hear the tree moan and complain in a New York accent every time James enters the living room.
Here is another example of James just bursting at the seems with Christmas spirit:
Oh no, that's his regular smile--it's Email the Bear who's looking extra jazzy. James won't even let his favorite pink pal wear a Manny Ramirez jersey. But a pointy hat and some jingle-bell elf shoes? Hell yes.
And finally, this is a short video of James lip-syncing to his all-time favorite holiday tune--Have a Holly Jolly Christmas. The audio is terrible, and the camera makes a really nasty noise every time I zoom and unzoom--but no no, don't be fooled, that is in fact a drawn out fart at second 35. And yes, it's long enough to close out the song. So proud of the little guy!
