Jaxson + Giana = Best Friends

My childhood friend Kathryn and I reunited when we found out we were both pregnant and due the same week. We enjoyed the journey of being pregnant together. We would compare our bellies, eat yummy food, and lounge on the couch as we anticipated our bundles of joy. Her little princess Giana arrived 2 weeks early and before Jaxson who was still baking away.  Now the two adorable babies are happy and healthy and spend time going for walks in the park, picnic lunches, shopping trips, watching their mommies chat and watch bad reality t.v. and hang out with our dear dear friend Joleen "Nanine." We like to joke that Jaxson is Giana's boyfriend. It is a riot to watch the two together if they are awake at the same time. We can't wait till they can play together and be best of friends.

2 Month Doctor's Appointment

View Image
Jaxson had his 2 month doctor's appointment today. Our little/big man weighed in at 15 lbs. (98 percentile), and is 24 1/2 inches long (93 percentile). He received 2 shots and 1 drink, and took it like a champ. He passed out on the 1 mile ride en route to Great Grammy and Papa's house where he took a nice long nap outside in the backyard. 

Mommy no more shots!

Captain Jax Sparrow

Jaxson had his maiden voyage on the pontoon boat at the lake house this past weekend. He loved the motion of the boat and watching the black and white pirate flag wave in the wind. He spent two gorgeous days outside breathing in the fresh air as he enjoyed swinging on the swing, sitting around the camp fire, watching the doggies play, taking naps outside, going for walks, and listening to everyone talk, cook and have fun! He can't wait to do it again!

Peanut Butter Diaper

Go to fullsize image
Jesse, Jaxson, and I spent our first weekend down at the lake house with the Maynard family for Mother's Day. Jaxson enjoyed sitting by the fire listening to everyone talk and seeing the lake and koi pond for the first time. Mom, Dad, and baby all slept together snug as a bug in a rug. 
In true Jesse fashion he gave me my mother's day gift in a very creative way. Jesse brought Jaxson upstairs to visit with Great Grandma for a little bit then came down for a diaper change. He wanted to change the baby on the couch in front of the family. So I helped him with the duty since Jesse seemed sure there was a #2 in store for us. He opened up the diaper and Jaxson let his fire hose loose by peeing on the wall...silly boy. I then saw what was not a normal poop in his diaper. Immediately I ran through all the different things I ate yesterday that could of created such an unusual substance from my lil boy. I started to clean up Jaxson with the wipe as Jesse smelled the poop and said it smelled like peanut butter...and it did. Well that was because it was peanut butter strategically placed by my dear husband, and slowly I realized that this was a joke on me yet I was still confused. Jesse then grabbed a piece of the peanut butter poo and gave it to me and said I think something is in there for you. Of course I looked at him like he had 4 heads, but based upon his smile and everyone watching me I knew this was leading to something. A beautiful Mother and Child necklace was wrapped in plastic hidden within the peanut butter. This for sure will be a Mother's Day I will never forget for many wonderful reasons. I will always wear my necklace and think of my amazing husband and son, the wonderful gift of being a Mom, and of course peanut butter.

Thank you Jesse and Jaxson for allowing me to have the special gift and joy of being a Mommy! I love you both more than you could ever know! xoxo
