"I'm so glad when daddy comes home...."

I think by the end of the day Jaxon gets bored of hearing my voice and playing with me. It is so cute, everyday when Mark comes in the door and talks to Jaxon his face just lights up. He loves his daddy!

OCD


So, I can be crazy sometimes. I am constantly thinking about time. When it comes to breastfeeding, I am super bad about it. I feel like I always have to feed Jaxon right before we leave to go somewhere even if I had just fed him the hour before because what if I can't feed him right at the next three hour mark? I guess I would do this because I hate having to worry about when the next time he needs to eat is. So, today was a milestone for me. I decided I would feed him every three hours like I usually do, and wherever I was I would just deal with it. It was great. He ate at 6:15, I put him back down and went back to bed. I got up right before church to get both of us ready and brought a bottle to church for his next feeding. He did GREAT! What a good boy. He was awake for the first hour of church, nice and happy, and then slept through the rest of it. I didn't stress and I got to go to all of the classes; super nice!

Cooking...

If you like meatballs, you gotta try this recipe. It is SUPER easy and so yummy.
1 Bag of pre-cooked Homestyle meatballs
1 jar chili sauce
1 small jar grape jam
1 can of pineapple(with the juice)
Put it all in the crockpot on high for four hours and you're set!

On a completely different note, Jaxon goes in for his two month check up tomorrow. I am not looking forward to watching him scream and cry while they give him five shots. Hopefully I can hold the tears back myself. We'll see. At least Mark has the day off tomorrow so that will help out alot. Wish us luck!

It's Official...

Mark and I have become the kind of people who have nothing to say unless it has to do with Jaxon. I think it's just because we are at a point where nothing is ever new with us, but Jaxon is constantly changing. And you have to admit, when you have kids, no one cares about you anymore, they just care about the baby, which is totally okay. So, on that note, here are some more pictures of Jaxon.

I love the wrinkles on his forehead that make him look like an old man.
He is at the age where he smiles all of the time and loves attention.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that his eyes will stay blue. So far, so good.
Whoever invented the baby bjorn is amazing. Jaxon loves to face outward and looks around while I am able to get things done. Half of the time he even ends up falling asleep from all of the movement.

I think it is safe to say....



Jaxon sort of has his own schedule. It has been over two weeks now and Jaxon is still sleeping through the night. He goes down anywhere between 9 and 11 and sleeps all the way until 5 or 6, wakes up to eat, and goes back down until 8 or 9. I really do have an angel baby. It has been nice now that I can count on him sleeping, I get to work out in the mornings before Mark goes to work.

A day in the Park...

Jaxon loves being outside. He likes to look at the blue sky and he loves to watch the trees when the wind blows.
We've noticed that our little one has reached the stage where he loves attention. When you talk to him now he just coos and giggles at you.
Who looks just like their daddy?

Happy Family!!!

Jaxon's Baby Blessing






We were able to have Mark bless Jaxon on the 31rst. It was nice to be able to have family and friends join us for his special occasion. He slept through the blessing and Mark said that he was giggling in his sleep toward the end. What a sweet boy!

Family Life....


I can't believe that I am a mom! After a wonderful delivery and then the aftermath of complications that I had for five days in the hospital, we have been able to enjoy 6 1/2 weeks with our little angel at home already. Time goes so fast!! Jaxon already:
*Has a double chin
*Smiles (especially at the ceiling fan and Grandma)
*Has stinky poops
*Likes to fight his sleep, but then sleeps in his crib from like 9pm-8am with one, maybe two quick feedings
*Loves to be talked to
*Makes lots of noises that sound like a goat, horse, puppy, and an old man
*Has lots of gas like his daddy
And lots more.............
