Last Saturday, Jaxon and I packed up and headed to Dallas with my mom to go and see my brother and his family. Gina had an emergency C-Section due to some complications with the baby. The baby was going to have to have surgery after they got her stabilized in the NICU....... but we were very blessed and a miracle happened. When they went to run tests after she was born, the issue went away. Even the doctors said it was something that had to be corrected with surgery, that it doesn't just dissapear and it was a miracle! We are so thankful that Gina and baby Brooklyn Elizabeth Duncan are both doing well. Brooklyn is still in the NICU but gets stronger every day and hopes to come home in a week. Jaxon and I had a great time watching after their kids Tyler and Jade while they were in the hospital. We were sad to leave them behind, but we are so grateful that things are going well. Congratulations Jonathan and Gina!
........and I am such a ding dong and forgot my camera everytime that I went to visit Brooklyn:(

Ty and Jaxon...Tyler always wanted to hold cute!

How I found Jaxon after his nap.
Grammy knows best!

We had such a fun time with Jade and Tyler!

All SMILES...(most of the time)

A day in the life of this baby is pretty busy! Crawl over here....pull up on this...fall over.....crawl to something else to pull on...fall again...and over and over again. That is pretty much what our day consists of lately. He wants to be on the go all of the time and is always trying new things. He has been trying to let go while standing, now climbs walls, walks along things, etc. He is also eating a ton as well. For breakfast lunch and dinner he will have two baby food jars along with something like vegetables or a granola bar, and then still breast feeds like 4 or 5 times a day. Crazy eater. On top of that, if he ever sees or hears me eating something he comes over as quickly as he can and tries to get some of whatever it is. Little Food Monster! My little baby is not so little anymore:(

House full of fun!

Last week we had my brother and sister-in-law's kids stay with us for most of the week while Michael was in the hospital. He had a couple of seizures so they had to keep him to run tests and make sure he was recovering. We are grateful that he is home and slowly recovering. While they were there we had the kids: Stephen, Sara, Robyn, Cassidy, and their two dogs. We had a full house, but we had lots of fun. We brought our extra mattress out into the living room and basically had a slumber party for four days. We were kinda sad to have to give them back, but are so happy that Michael is able to be back home. We love you guys!

We decided to go to the park. Jaxon had a good time.

Sleepy time for Jaxon and Stephen
The girls had such a good time playing with Jaxon and he loved the attention!
Cassidy and Jaxon: cutest picture ever!
