Santa was VERY good to us this year! This little guy is a stocking stuffer that can't be beat!

Hello! I figured it was time to change this blog, so it reflects the change to our family. Little Bradyn will be here before we know it. I have developed PIH (pregnancy induced hypertension) so Bradyn will probably come early. My doctor is hoping to keep the little man in utero as long as possible. Her plans are to induce anywhere between the 10th & 20th of December. In the meantime, she has ordered lots of tests, and I am being monitored VERY closely. I have non-stress tests (where they monitor the baby's heartbeat for 20 minutes) twice a week, an ultrasound scheduled for Tuesday, and weekly appts. So far, so good. I am unable to work, and am supposed to take it easy all the time, which means no work, no housework and no major shopping trips. Sound like fun?--NO WAY! It is driving me crazy already. But it will be worth it when I deliver a healthy Bradyn. I do look forward to that! I am also very excited for Christmas. Having my second son is the only present I need! What a special time of year to have a baby! I will update if there are any changes, and of course when the little guy arrives!

We carved Jaxon's pumpkin tonight! He thought it was great--all except for digging out the seeds & slime. He didn't like that too much! We are waiting for Daddy to come home, and then we will light it up--I can't wait to see his face when it is lit! He will LOVE it!

Jaxon's Great-Grandparents were incredible people, and will be missed so much! It has barely been a month since we lost Grandpa Clarence, and now a little over a month later, we have had to say Goodbye to Grandma Katie! Jaxon loved to go visit them, and it is so sad that he won't even remember his time with them! We honor them & are thankful that they were a part of our lives!

Jaxon absolutely refused to go to bed tonight. We tried everything, from letting him cry in his crib, to rocking and even laying with him in bed. Nothing worked, so we finally gave up and put in the movie we wanted to watch. Jaxon made it to the ball pit, and crashed--he is sooooo funny!

Wheat harvest started yesterday, and Jaxon and I spent a couple of hours in the combine with Brady. Jaxon really seemed to enjoy it! He likes to steer the combine, and would prefer to be able to do it all by himself! We are trying to locate an old steering wheel, so we can weld it to a long pipe and metal plate, so Jaxon has his very own steering wheel for the tractor and combine. I think if he could steer, we could put him in his car seat on the buddy seat, and he would probably ride all afternoon!

Today was Jaxon's party, and he had a blast! He enjoyed all of his guests, and wanted to spend a little time with everybody. He is very outgoing, and went to everybody who talked to him. He made a huge mess with his cake, and when we washed him off in the cold water, he had a blast. He cried when I took him away from the water! He got lots of fun presents, and is at home playing with them now! Everytime he sees his giant Shrek doll, he gives him lots of kisses. His new basketball and soccer ball are a hit too. He loves to turn on the new racetrack he got, and has been mowing the carpet too!

Grandma Judy gave Jaxon this wagon full of Mega Blocks as an early birthday present! He loves to empty and re-fill the wagon, and of course drag mega blocks all over the living room. It was a great choice for him, and he spends many hours playing with the blocks! He also likes to hand us blocks so we can build with them. What fun!! Thanks Grandma Judy!

Yesterday I put up a make-shift backdrop to practice taking Jaxon's picture. I know the backdrop is pretty bad, but that isn't why I am sharing these! It was obvious to me right away that I get Jaxon's picture taken way too often. As soon as I sat him on the backdrop, he started cheesing at me. He knew exactly what to do--isn't that funny! He is too cute!

Jaxon got this little push toy yesterday, and has been pushing it from one end of the house to the other. When he reaches a wall, he hollers until I turn it around. He would push it all day, if I didn't distract him once in a while! He is getting so big! What an adorable little guy!

We had a lot of fun playing at the mall the other day! We did some grocery shopping, and then had lunch with Grandma Leanna (Brady's Mom) and Great-Grandma & Great Grandpa Becker(Leanna's parents)! I am able to do lots more fun stuff with Jaxon now that he is getting a little bigger! We rode the carousel today, and he LOVED it, too!
