Thankfully, my mother came to the rescue, as usual. She took James to Kosciusko for a few nights, so I could get some extra work done (that's another story...I've been spending a lot of time with the elderly). So, James was spared being the "poor kid without grandparents," and instead he had a week/weekend full of love by both sets of grandparents. Unfortunately, I don't have documentation from the Byrds...the camera stayed in the car.
As far as our life here in Memphis, let me tell you it is SO busy. James is pulling up, cruising, and into everything. When I finally sit down (like now), I get really sleepy (I will probably be asleep in 15 minutes). But, I will say, this stage is my favorite. I'll trade a still infant for a busy 9 month old any day! James goes to the pediatrician for a belated 9 month check up...I'm curious as to how he will "weigh in;" this boy loves to eat.
Off to bed:).
