Let the Fun begin!

We are in Wyoming at my parents and are getting VERY excited about Christmas. My sister and her family will be arriving late tonight and I can't wait to get up in the morning to see them! This is my first Christmas as a Mom, and I think it is great!! My Christmas wish for several years was to have a baby, and my wish came true. Jaxon is here! My world is so much brighter with my little Christmas wish! Tomorrow we are going to do some Christmas crafts (Jaxon will have to watch), and Jada & I are also going to read lots of books. We will have Christmas tea and Cookies (Jaxon can even eat a cookie or two) and Santa is coming to bring an early present for Jaxon, Jada & Tanner!! What fun--and every Christmas from here on out will be more exciting than the last! Merry Christmas to all & to all a Good Night!!

Ready for Christmas!

The house is decorated, the presents are wrapped
(for now) and we are ready for Christmas! Jaxon loves the changes and is ready to grab it all and stuff it in his mouth! I just wish he was that eager to take his medicine!

Growing Boy

Jaxon is SO much fun! He is doing new things everyday! He refuses to eat commercial babyfood, and that worried me briefly, but all is well now. This weekend I gave him real peas, and he LOVED them! He did a great job gumming them and didn't even gag like he does when a spoonful of gerber fruit is popped into his little hatch! As you can see from the photo of him with his portable DVD player, he
has discovered a new way to watch TV. I walked out of the toyroom briefly and returned to find him interacting with the screen as Baby Einstein played on! The only problem at our house right now is I am SICK! I got a cold and it is getting worse instead of better. I lost my voice several days ago, and can't sing or read to Jaxon! That makes us both very SAD! Hopefully the Dr. will give me a quick fix today, and we will be singing and reading within 48 hours!!

Christmas Preview--TMX ELMO!!

One of Jaxon's Christmas gifts arrived yesterday, and we just had to have a preview! As you can see in the picture, he was totally fascinated by Elmo & his antics! Yaa! He will be a success, just as I thought he would be! Jaxon LOVES watching Sesame Street and the puppet shows on his Baby Einstein videos, so I knew he would love having an animated character of his very own!

Baby Bunting!

Jaxon's best naps are always in his carseat after an outing! Doesn't he look sweet all bundled up for the cold weather!

Playing Outside!

Jaxon was having a rough time today, so I decided it was time to explore the great outdoors! He loved it! He forgot about the discomfort of teething and enjoyed life on the farm! We even visited the horses!

Happy Thanksgiving from Our Little Turkey!

New Toy

I just had to buy this for Jaxon and he LOVES it! The only problem with it is that he thinks that when he is done playing with it, he can just stand up! It requires very close supervision! He likes to turn the little lamp on and off and move the hands on the little clock--what a Genius! (hmmmm could I be biased LOL)

New Hat from Momma

My Momma made me this hat last night at work! It helped keep her awake when things were quiet and I love it! I am such a lucky boy! My Momma will make you one too, all you have to do is ask!

Time With Jill & girls!

We spent time with Jill, Whitney and Ella last weekend. I forgot my camera, but did manage to get a shot with my phone. We had a great time, and Jaxon absoluely loved playing with the girls. He totally ignored his Mommy, and on the way home he decided he needed his Mommy fix and cried and cried. I stopped twice to try and make him happy. He would smile while I was with him, but would start crying as soon as I got back into the driver's seat! It was not the most fun trip home. He didn't even enjoy watching his beloved Baby Einstein DVDs (And I tried 2 different ones)!


It is four-thirty in the morning, and I have been up with Jaxon for over 2 hours! The first hour was spent trying to get him to go back to sleep, but I gave up! He has been hanging out on the floor and watching TV for the last hour! I sure hope the reason he is up is because he is teething, because I don't want to do this all the time!

Toe Sucker!

Fall Festival

WE spent last weekend in Omaha with my family. The kids all dressed up for the fall festival! It was so much fun!!

My little Kewpie Doll!

That chubby round face and blond hair makes my little man look like a Kewpie Doll or a Campbell's Soup Kid. Which one do you think he looks like?? (leave your opinion in the comment section!) Here he is playing with his new toys. He absolutely loves them. I am glad that he is easy to please, too!

So Proud!

I am so proud of Jaxon when he does new things! He is sitting by himself now, and I am so excited. It is incredible to watch him change and grow!

Happy Birthday Ike

Jaxon and I spent the evening at the Eisenhower center celebrating President Eisenhower's birthday. It was a really neat celebration and I am glad that we went! The first event of the evening was a 1956 presidential campaign vignette on the porch of Eisenhower's boyhood home. After that was an "Ike's Idol's" talent show featuring an Elvis impersonator. Jaxon absolutely loved the concert. He stood on my lap the whole time and was totally enthralled by the music. It was so much fun to see his reactions as he watched the program! Here he is crashed out after a busy evening! I forgot my camera, or I would have taken a picture in the totally cute outfit he wore. We will be back to the Eisenhower Center tomorrow, so will get a pic of him in front of Ike's boyhood home!

Busy Boy!

Jaxon is pretty happy to hang out in his snugli, but most of the time he is super busy. He is rolling around, sitting up, reaching for toys and growing up too fast. It is so much fun to watch him learn new things. He does something new almost every day! His personality is really
emerging as well. He has a bit of a temper, too (I am sure that must be from Brady LOL)! Right now he is playing on the floor. He is sucking on the fingers of his left hand and reaching for toys with his right hand. What a nut!

We went to Portrait Innovations today and got Jaxon's pictures taken. I absolutely love them!! What do you think of my little Tigger?

Rice Cereal

I couldn't resist letting Jaxon sample rice cereal with bananas! I don't know if he had fun, but I sure did! After the first bite, his eyes were as big as saucers--it was so cute. He made every face imaginable, from squinting, to frowning, and smiles. It is neat to watch him experience life!

Adorable PJ's

These jammies are from Grandpa Jerry and Grandma Judy--they sure are cute! I really like the cute night cap!

These footy Jammies are from Aunt Jessica-- they remind me of being a kid and wearing this kind!

Redneck Baby

This isn't my favorite outfit, but I did have to admit he looked pretty cute in his camo sweats. Brady & I went to the K-State game, and Jaxon went to Darwin & Shelly's house. He had a great time being the center of attention. He had 5 people at his beck and call--musta been rough!

Kissing Momma

Isn't he sweet! He likes to kiss his Momma!

Trip To Colorado

Jaxon and I went to Colorado with Brady's Dad & Step-Mom. We had a nice time traveling with them. The reason for our trip was to go and support Bill (Brady's dad) at the oncologist. We also went up into the mountains. Jaxon was incredible! He was good in the car, and enjoyed all the relatives!

Houseful of Fun!

We have had a great weekend with lots of visitors. We had Aunts & Uncles from California and Grandpa Gene also came! Jaxon was the center of attention and he absolutely LOVED it! They all oohed and ahhed over him, and spoiled him rotten. Aunt Jackie, Uncle Jack, Aunt Betty and Uncle Manuel bought him his own portable DVD player and baby einstein DVD. Pretty Kewl, huh!! We played cards, too and just had a blast!!!

The After Picture!

I am pretty sure everybody needs to see a good picture of my boy with his cute haircut!

First Haircut!

I wish I could say that Jaxon sat so nice in the chair during his haircut, but that just isn't how it went. He did do really well for a little while, but then . . .the barber tried to hold his head still and Jaxon let him know he didn't like that. He didn't cry, but did the Jaxon screech that he does when he is frustrated. Our little man is showing us that he has a bit of a temper! Even with a little bit of a temper, he is still Mommy's little angel! And he sure is cute, too.

Daddy's Outfit

Jaxon is wearing an outfit that was Daddy's when he was a baby. He sure looks cute, but surprisingly he doesn't look like a clone of Daddy. He must have some of Mommy's genes after all!

Cutest Baby in The World

I am so lucky! I am blessed with the cutest baby in the world.

Sick Baby!

Jaxon is sick! He has his first ear infection. The poor little guy is miserable and crabby.

Checking out the Combine

My little man sure does look cute in his John Deere hat. He isn't all that impressed with the combine or the hat, but I am afraid that will change. It won't be long, and Jaxon will want to follow Brady everywhere he goes. The first time that happens, I will be an absolute mess!

Football Fan

Here is a pic of Jaxon watching football! I had him in his exersaucer Saturday morning and he started watching the TV, so I decided to change the channel to baby TV. When I did this, he quit watching! When I changed it back to the game, he would continue watching! I did this a couple of times, and he did the same thing. Daddy is so proud that his baby watched the football game! He is sure that this is the beginning of Jaxon's love for the game. I personally think he liked the colors of the uniforms better than the colors that were on the other channel, but only Jaxon knows.

Big Boy!

I put my baby in his crib for the first time tonight! I went up to check on him, and he looks so sweet sleeping in his big bed. It brought tears to my eyes to think about how fast he is growing! My little newborn is gone forever. The spunky, active little baby he is now is so much fun, but those newborn days were pretty special!

All Jaxon!

It is funny that we spend so much money to buy cute clothes for babies, when they look the cutest in just a diaper!

Entertaining Jaxon

Entertaining Jaxon while I do other things is getting more challenging! These are the faces of his boredom while I cleaned house today.
