What should be the 11 week post. Delayed.

I have a great 11 week old picture of Jaxon that I wanted to put up this week... But it won't let me because apparently blogger only gives you 1GB of storage for pictures and I have used it all up. If I want more I have to pay monthly... Really?!?!
So at this moment, I am debating on weather I think it's worth it or not.

Leave a comment on weather you think it would be worth it... Or if you have another idea on how to put pictures on here without paying.

10 Weeks

My baby boy is now in the double digits. I cant believe how fast he is growing.
Of course, every mother says that but its so true. I wish I could slow down time.

Nothing big happened this week. We have just been relaxing and unpacking all of our stuff.
I think Jax will start laughing soon. He acts like he wants to but isn't sure how.

My mom and I went Christmas shopping for him this week. (I'll do a post about those toys later.)
Even after everything we got him, there is still so much I still want to get him. I would rather spend all my money on him then myself. I better be careful or I might spoil him haha.

Since there isn't much to write about this week... here are some more pictures.
No one could resist cute baby pictures.
( We still aren't sure if he was born with a birth mark or if its a stork bite, but its in the shape of a heart)

2 Month Check Up... Shots

We went in for Jaxon's 2 month check up today.
He was measured at 20.25 inches. Not even on the percentile chart. Tiny Boy.
Weight was 9lbs 8oz. Still in the 10 percentile.
He was a happy boy before his shots. Just cooing and smiling at us. 
 He was given his first immunization orally and did great.
 Next was the two shots in his legs. I had Mike hold him down because I just couldnt do it. The nurse gave him the shots very quickly and then he turned bright red and balled his eyes out. My heart just broke hearing him cry. I was told to nurse him after which made things better.
 He whimpered a little after nursing and then fell asleep on the car ride home. Poor baby.
He seemed find after so we went to the mall. 3 hours in he started crying and it was very hard to calm him down. We left the mall because he was screaming and turning bright red. This just breaks my heart. My mom was rubbing his blanket against his face and letting him grab onto her finger. She was able to calm him down till we got home. Once we got home we gave him baby tylenol and took him in the shower. I think the shower helped because he passed out afterwards and is still currently asleep (4 hours later). I really wish we didn't have to do this to our babies, but I know it helps them from getting something far worse.

9 Weeks Old

This week has been pretty busy. Since we are now back in San Diego, there are so many people that have been dying to meet Jax. Oh yeah... and we have been unpacking. We had some help from some pretty amazing people (friends and family). I don't think we could have done it without them. Especially since I was stuck with the baby most of the time. We are getting closer to having our little home put back together.

Jax played with his toys for the first time this week. It was such a proud moment for me. I love watching him smile up at his toys and bat at them. He is growing up so fast.

Another huge accomplishment this week... Jax slept 8 hours straight! Best sleep I have had in awhile. 

We started using our cloth diapers! I love them!!! He looks so cute in them even though they look a little big on his butt. They work wonders and its so nice not having to go buy more disposable diapers each week. But we are still using disposable diapers when we go out places. It just makes it easier for us right now. Who knows, we might go all cloth in the future.

This week Jax smiles and coos at me when ever I talk to him. I love waking up in the morning to a happy baby. He could do no wrong ;)

Jaxon is still wearing newborn clothes and diapers at 2 months old. I cant believe how tiny my little guy is. But I do have proof he is growing. Tomorrow is his 2 month check up so I cant wait to see how much he has grown. But I'm not to excited about him having to get shots. :(

8 Weeks Old- Last Day Of Moving

Almost 2 months old! ( On Nov 10th)
My sweet baby Jax, you are getting so big! (Even though you are still so tiny)
I have no idea how you are still in newborn clothes and diapers.
The biggest thing this week was that you started cooing much more. 
I love when you coo at me and start smiling right after.
It just melts my heart!
At 8 weeks old, you traveled from Colorado Springs to San Diego (In a 4 day stretch). 
Thats the most you have ever been in the car.
You got to meet so many people on the way. Every single one just adored you.
I feel so blessed to have you in my life.

Last day of traveling. 
(Havasu to San Diego)
At this point Mike & I were ready to be done drive and so was Jax.
He slept most of the time but got fussy once again when he woke up.
When we got to San Diego, he was greeted by his Auntie Nikki and Uncle Scottie.
That was the first time my brother got to meet him.
I dont have a picture of the together because my brother wanted to wait until he was over his cold.
Later that night he got to meet his Grandpa for the first time.


Great Grandpa

Moving day 2 & 3

Day 2 & 3
We left Albuquerque around 11A.M. to head off to Cottonwood AZ. It took us about 6 hours to get there. That was one of the harder days with Jax. When he would wake up, he would cry and since we were driving and I couldnt take care of him he would get even more upset. He did this a couple of times. Once we got to Cottonwood, Jax met his Great Grandma, Great Great Grandma, Great Great Uncle & Great Great Aunt. Wow, thats a lot of greats.
The next day we took a 5 generation picture. Its so cool that we were able to do that. Not many people even have 5 generations. After lunch we headed out to Lake Havasu. Jax slept most of the way there because we gave him gripe water but an hour before we got there he started to wake up and throw a fit.
We stayed the night at my grandparents place and that was his first time meeting his Great Grandpa.

Lacy's squirrel somehow ended up in the hotel room with us. I have no idea how that happened but she was pretty happy.

I gave my hubby my skittles bag and took a picture of him pigging out. He tried to hide it but I was to fast.

We found a better way to change him in the car. This was a lot easier then having him on one of our laps.

5 Generations!

Best purchase! This portable swing kept us sane!! Anytime he got fussy, we would stick him in this and he would fall asleep right away.
