Giving Thanks, part 2: my buddy

“My buddy, my buddy!  Wherever I go you’re gonna go!  My buddy, my buddy….my buddy and me!”
Holy cannoli, how I love this chunk.  He is filling me to overflowing with joy and excitement and gratitude.  He’s finally walking more consistently, but he still flips out with satisfaction every time he does.  He walks like a little baby monkey with his arms in the air to keep his balance.  Except he’s totally cuter than a baby monkey, if you can believe that.  It seriously hurts how cute he is and how much we love him.  Sooooo grateful for my Jameser boy.
