1. His sunny personality; he makes everyone smile.
2. The Look I get when he is testing my limits: part imp, part "I don't care," part "I know you'll love me anyway."
3. The way his face and entire body lights up with joy when he sees things he likes: the moon, the car out back, favourite people, or the school bus.
4. Hearing him say "Mama" in his soft voice.
5. Hearing him bellow "CAR!!!!" when I show him the Cars trailers on my laptop.
6. Hearing him make horses say "moooooo!" ... and then laughing.
7. Schnuggles. Nobody does a happy nestling wiggle like James!
8. Watching him go up to people who are doing something else, bending over while circling and looking up at them, and having them smile and say "hello!" to him.
9. Watching him run, laugh, and be so happy.
10. The way he looks up and smiles at me.
