As soon as I heard his little squeals and jabberings, I grabbed the camera and headed to his room. I pulled back his curtains and blinds to find the most beautiful morning light filling his space. I think he was rather puzzled to see the camera so early in the day, but he quickly adjusted, and proceded to give me lots of smiles. I cannot believe he is nine months old. Nine months full of sweetness. And I'm not just saying that. This little boy is a peach. I hope these pictures of our Jobie-boy bring a smile to your face today, as well as the little tour of his room.
I'm pretty sure that nobody can make Job laugh as hard as Graeme can. It is adorable to watch. If we ask him to find dada, mama, Graeme, or doggie, he looks for us until he finds us. He gives kisses. Lots of them. He lights up the world with his smile. He is starting to say mama, I'm sure of it, even if his daddy thinks I am making things up! ( I think daddy is just jealous. Really, things are even now, because Graeme said dada before saying mama! ) Jobie especially loves to be held by mama. Melts.my.heart. He is a pro at pulling up and standing, and this week, he's even ventured out to take a few, wobbly, one-handed steps from sofa to table, chair to mama, train table to toy, etc. He still has no teefers. He is mister laid back with a side of sass-- he is his mother's child, ha! Jobie, you are so precious to us. Happy nine months, sweet pea.
Job's nursery is very plain, but I love it. For the most part, the boys play in Graeme's room and downstairs, so for now, his room is basically for sleeping, hence the sparseness. I still love the round crib; it was a gift from my parents when I was expecting Graeme. The armoire was a gift from my friend, Kerry, and when Graeme was born, my dad rebuilt the insides and my sister, Barb, refinished it for me. It is such a special piece to me.
Our home has vaulted ceilings in every upstairs room. They are beautiful. The alphabet, above Job's changing table, was a gift from another dear friend, Erin. They are Martha Stewart alphabet cards. It's difficult to tell from the pictures, but the alphabet grouping is about 4 feet wide by 5 feet tall. ( Those vaulted ceilings come in handy for such things! )

I have to say, it was a very easy project and I love the result. That's always a great combination, right?
Happy weekending, friends.
ps. In case you don't believe me about the way Graeme can make Jobie cackle, here's a little evidence! I especially love Job's laugh around the 45 second mark.
