Walking on his hands

So all the sudden jax is doing this weird walking on hands thing. It's really funny in person. He thinks he's pretty cool. So do I. :)

Cute video

So this movie is typical Jaxton stuff, he's a funny kid. H-a-l-a-r-i-o-u-s.  He is SO, SO cute guys. And it's kinda sad because he is gettin all mom-clingy and so mostly I'm the only one that see's a lot of his cuteness. Cause he can really be quite the ronch(sp?) to everyone else. He's got serious attitude. BUT he is talking SO much more now-a-days (as shown in the video) so a lot of the frustration from not being able to communicate is lessened. Kind of.

18 month stats

Jax had his 18m. check-up. Here are the figures:
Weight: 27lbs, 71%
Length: 33inches, 72%
Head Size: 20inches, 99%
At his check-up a lady came and talked with me about doing this a flu vaccination study with Jax. I guess they are trying to add one more strain to the current vaccine and they are doing some of the testing/study at my doctors office. I was a little freaked out initially because of the word "study" and they had to take a tsp. of Jax's blood in the beginning and at the end (2 months later). But, after discussing it with my doctor (who was not affiliated) I decided to do it. My doctor thought it was a REALLY good idea to get him vaccinated, and the study did just that. So i did it,  #1-because they vaccinate him for free (normal flu vaccine and the H1N1 and possibly that new strain--no one knows if he got one with the new strain or not.); #2-because they give you $150 after it's all done (slight perk). So anyway, i've had to do this "journal" for a week; take his temperature every night, watch for abnormal behavior, check the injection site and such. He didn't seem to have had any reactions. So that is a relief. He doesn't really react to stuff very much, kinda like me; stuff just normally does what it's supposed to in my body. He rarely runs fevers. he is always like 97.0 degrees. not even 98. And i never have fevers either. My family just doesn't really get them...a fever for us is like 100; and that means we are pretty sick. Sorry; I'm rambling.

Look how cute!
Jax doing a silly face with the Christmas tree that he "helped"  me decorate like a big boy. :)
Ps. He is all over that tree. K, and i mean, i can see the draw, it's gotta be tempting, but really I cant believe it hasn't fallen over. Lets all pray it makes it till Christmas...:)
It's a little bleary because I took the picture with my phone...
Love this little trouble maker!
Ps. If anyone has any cool disciplinary tactics for 18 month olds do share. I'm loosing that battle FAST. He seems to be un-affected by everything...

Dont read if you don't want to see a side profile of a drawn bum....

Firstly, here are some recents of Jax...he is a big boy. Poor kid gets really bored REALLY fast. And sadly, he has a mom that doesn't entertain, at all. So you can imagine...He has a recent MAJOR obsession with Thomas the Train. Like he wants to watch 24/7--you don't believe me i know, just ask my mom or husband. He is just SO busy. SSOOO busy. He has his 18 month appointment on Monday. He's just growin right up. He is pretty coordinated, he jumps really well on my parents trampoline, and can jump with both feet off the ground, not on a tramp, he LOVES to run "fast" and throw everything and anything at everyone and anything. He is still a terrible eater and we are all constantly amazed he is as thick as he is, but he's thinning out. He's pretty good at communicating and talking, but also really good at rambling in incoherent jibber-jabber. Both are VERY cute.:) Now you can read on...

So, I'm officially in my second trimester...hallelujah. Landmark of happiness. That's right; 14 weeks baby. I'm so, so glad. So glad. For me, time just crawls when I'm pregnant. I found out at like 4 weeks; and i feel like it's totally just been snail pace. You wait for 5 weeks, then 6 weeks, then 7 weeks, then 8---you see what i mean? Not even in the double digits yet and it's already annoying. :) Don't I sound patient? well, I'm not.:) I got sick at 6 weeks with this one, instead of at 9 weeks like I was with Jax---and the nausea was a little worse than I remembered with Jax...so that might have added to the slow feeling of it all. But I'm pretty much not sick anymore, just hungry.:) BOO-YA. Second trimester rules. Anyway, just wanted to share my joy. Sorry about the naked picture below---I'm so excited about being 14 weeks i don't even care that I'm posting a naked picture on my blog. Plus it's discrete naked. Just be thankful it's a drawing and not the real thing---as in a side view of me naked...hehe, that would be bad...bad...;)

And, in case you couldn't tell, my baby is the size of a lemon.:) We are g-e-t-t-i-n-g there!

we're pretty cool

Justin and I went to Park City for the weekend (Thurs., Fri., got back today, Saturday). It was GREAT. In a word. Eating out every meal has got to be one of the best things ever; not being responsible for a child; hanging with my eternal companion. I've been looking forward to it for a LONG time. My AMAZING parents/family/GREAT grandparents Haight all made this possible by watching my cute little CRAZY baby. For 3 days!
THANK YOU!!!! You are the BEST!!!
Jax had a blast; didn't care one iota that I was gone. Seriously, when  I got back and we finally left to go back to our house with him; he just kept sadly and pathetically saying as we got in the car and drove away "mai mai....mai mai" (that is what he calls my mom) over and over, almost bringing himself to tears... He REALLY missed me.
Another happy thought:
We have 18 people in my extended family to buy Christmas presents for (excluding Justin, me and Jax). While we were in Park City we went to the outlets and SCORED. Got EVERYONE pretty darn cool presents, and dude; we got D-E-A-L-S. And so, now we are done. WHAT??!?! I've NEVER been done this early...But i'm NOT complaining. We are SO happy. We did so good. We were like the shopping masters--we were just on a roll the whole day. We basically shopped for like 10 hours, and we still liked each other after. How many women can say that about their husbands? I know, Justin is a cool shopper. A good trick to help if you have a problem getting your guy to go, and go with a smile, is to let him buy something for himself about every, oh, hour and 1/2...It's not the cheapest thing but you gotta weigh your priorities. :) j/k...kind of.
Anyway. We are PROUD. To bad we only think to take pictures of our son--hence none from our anniversary thing...sad.

Thanks again to my family--love you!

ps. If you don't go on a overnight-er for your anniversary--you should; give yourself a break. I highly doubt you wont like it...:)

Halloween pictures

Remember when my baby used to look like this?? I don't. sad. That was last halloween.
I just got done watching a video of it...sob. Cute little superman.


AND remember how last year Justin was Wolverine?

Well this year he decided not to mess up a good thing...you can see him in the background...:)
AND look at this cute little elephant!!!
 I promise he is 20x cute-er (is that a word) in person. If that is possible. He looked SO cute. And i didn't get a bum shot of him, which is sad because there was padding in this costume and jax was a little tall and really got a wedgie from it. SO cute from the behind.... :)
 The trunk-r-treat was right during his nap-time. This might help explain his overall look in most of these...
 I actually dressed up this year. I was supposed to just be a asain person but it turned into the freaky asian from down-under. To bad i didn't do a closeup of my face---pretty scary! or my ears--sprayed with black spray. gross.
 
It was all pretty fun. Jax looked SO cute. I couldn't get enough. Like i say, the pictures suck. But we had a good time with him. We went and saw both grandparents that night to show him off. Grandparents are the BEST people to show your kid off to.

Remember when we went to St. George?

Oh wait, didn't blog about it. We went to St. George to go camping. However, in light of my vow, we (justin, me, and jax) didn't really camp; we hung with the campers by day, and slept in my Grandparents Judkins house by night. In a queen bed. in a room. with fans. bless me. And that is how it's done people.

Sadly, because of laziness and blah feeling i took only the pictures below. But my, are they good pictures.

This is how we found jax after looking away for like maybe 30 seconds. I can't say i didn't see it coming, but it was a HUGE mess. Good thing we werent really camping and could go wash the cloths later that night. That didn't stop jax from getting a pretty severe cold shower in the large fresh water spicket directly afterward. Don't worry, we let him play for awhile in his nasty puddle, cause i mean, the damage was done. No reason to stop the child when he will play by himself for a bit...But then he started drinking the water. It was irrigation water. I kind of  really hate that campground for a number of reasons...that is one. There were  puddle like lake things around alll the trees in the campground--the spickets CONSTANTLY just ran water to the tree's unless you ask specifically to have them turned off in your site. DUMB idea if you want kids under 4 at your camp ground NOT to get giardia. Ya, Jax might have that. what? yes, thanks stupid campground. (in the campgrounds defense--it was GEORGOUS down there...but that had way more to do with the location then the campground...lets be honest.) Anyway, ya, giardia. Jaxton's poop is progressivly getting more and more funky and frequent. In case you were wondering. I'm a little nervous about it...mostly because i DO NOT want to do a stool sample.
Here is my Angel...:)


In case you can't tell, he is having a BLAST. :)


See the stupid leaky spicket; Jax had his entire mouth around that thing and he was lapping up the water.


My dad was being nice to jax after the cold spicket shower we gave him. What a nice grandpa. :)
video

Look! Other people that aren't jax! See sometimes i do take pictures of other things...

Cross your fingers jaxton's poop starts to normalize...:)
hehe.

Here are some pictures since blogger sucks and i cant load my videos i was SO excited about...HATE it. blogger, i HATE blogger.

Jaxtons new corky thing he has started to do somtimes is try and clawl into small spaces. Which he can usually do, however, he cannot usually get himself back out.  So the other day i found him in this little place.  and nope, he couldn't get himself out of this one either--that smile didn't stay on there too long...poor kid. :)



This is Jaxton walking to church, i couldn't resisist snaping a picture with my phone becuase he was just walking with so much purpose and was really being pretty silly (refer to other picture below.) He doesn't like church-has a hard time, so it's extra cute and funny to me.


He is SO darn cute i cant even deal with it. Thank goodness i think he is so cute... the little stinker. ;)

Some portraits

These are some portraits my dad took back in the beginning of July; i'm totally on top of things...I cant tell you how convienent it is to have a dad that likes to take pictures with a nice camera, and actually does a good job. Oh gracias!
We had to give Jax candy every 30 seconds or so, you might be able to see some in some of these; so if your wondering, yes, he has candy in his mouth.  It was REALLY hard to get him to sit still. Almost impossible, we are lucky we got what we did.
 Side note: I'm going to try to upload some video's of him..they are pretty funny. But, knowing me you might not see them for a couple of months. ;)
ps. Jax is 16 months old, when he went in for his appointment at 15 months he was 70% for weight, 80% for height, and over 100% for head size. :) Just wanted to document. I think he weighed 27lbs.
another ps. I put windsheild wipers on my car today all by myself. Bought the right size and everything. Go me.
pps. After confrence this week i'm putting jax in nursrey on sunday, even though he's not 18 months. I had like 3 people at church come and tell me it was okay last sunday. Could their comments have had something to do with his behavior? With his behavior every week? Who cares. Done. Tender mercies. Justin almost cried with joy. ;)

Cute picts of my babe


This is Jax loving the "bath" with Isaac and Max

3 in the tub...


 Now aren't all of those just SO cute? :) He really caught a lot of Jaxton's usual faces.

ps. I do NOT get this knew formatting or whatever with blogger, then again, i didn't get the old formatting either...kind of really, really, annoying. Why cant i ever figure out how to make stuff look the way i want? Is it that hard? Blogging is really frustrating.

Master of the House



My Moms the Bomb:
  •  7 Children (really, lets be honest, this list could end here)
  • Primary President (WAAAAAY extra mile primary president)
  • Service extraordinaire (One of the most Christ-like people I know in this area)
  • "No" is not in her vocabulary (she will say yes to anything and everything you ask of her, ALWAYS)
  • Jumps, literally, at any chance to watch the grandkids---She's in love with them (I am SO thankful she's mine:)
  • Cup is ALWAYS "half full"--this can sometimes cause me to want to shake her...
  • Always beyond supportive, this goes from close family to extended family to church and to community. Like Marsha=supporter. Like a HUGE supporter.
  • Always juggling 1 million things--but somehow always has time for you
  • SO active--not one of those mom's that sit around--running, racquetball, back-handsprings (not on the tramp, ya you heard me) biking, swimming, triathlons, boxing, workout videos, you name it.
  • More than happy to feed anyone, and lots of times everyone, anytime, anyplace, over and over and over again.
  • Plus she is just darn cute.
ADD to this
  • MASTERS DEGREE in public administration from BYU. 
She's been working on that for the last 3 years, and it was DANG hard work.
Ya, she IS amazing. I'm glad we can all agree.
I'm sure there will be more amazing attributes that come to mind right after i post this but, oh well. I just wanted to give you an idea.
She rules.
Picts of the awesome occasion below:

Awww look how happy :)
 


These little people LOVE her



See, look at how Jax is looking at her



These big people love her too.

Gal of the hour in all her glory


Well there it is. documented for all time. Happy day.
