4 months old

Jax was 4 months old on the 14th of September.

He weighs
almost 16 lbs, he's 25 inches long, and his head size is still in the 75-90%. Yes, his brain is huge, hence the super smartness and the reason he can already talk. :)

Here's some picts of the little dude.

ps. he is now sleeping through the night, that's right fokes, 8pm-ish to 7:30am-ish, i totally rule...please knock on wood.

Jax is really one of the most jolly babies i have ever seen. But for some reason when i get out the camera he tends to just look at me as shown above.
Ps. his new walker, recent development, $20 bucks at kid to kid--cleaned it up, looks like new. sweet.

Jax proving his immense strength and skill by standing and holding his shirt and looking at the camera---all in one motion.

Even if he's not smiling he still is super pretty... in a I'm sleepy/bored/slightly annoyed/slightly skeptical kind of way. :)

Trying really hard to get this cute kid to smile...

and here he goes giving me a laugh, way to go the extra mile jax.

This one is a pretty good one. :)

What a cute kid!!

Bye Bye Red...:(

Alas, family pictures have brought my red-scapades to an abrupt halt. I am dark once again---but only until next summer. :)
Here's how it went down.

Yes, thank you, i know i'm attractive.

We were tempted to leave it like this... that's a lie, i was the only one tempted.

Finished product
Ha ha, all you get are blurry pictures. And I can't figure out why this is underlined.

K, i don't care if this is blurry, i love this picture...

This really is all you get b/c i decided i look better blurry sometimes.

Just Bathin

This is what he does like half the time he's in the bath.

This is what he does the other half (sucking on stuff, fingers or washcloths, he does not discriminate).

My favorite face.

This is his new trick, he grabs his feet all the time, it's extra super cute in the bath because he's in the nude. I was lucky to get a pict of him doing it without his parts showing... :)

Sorry everybody, but my baby is SO cute!!

Random thoughts from my friends blog, i couldn't agree more... :)

I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.

I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart. (that one is for Justin:)

MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a problem....

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and then estimated that there must be at least four people eating to require such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself.
