36 & 37 Weeks.

Oh this child does not give me a break. 
He is always on the move. He loves to stand up on his own and will run while someone is holding onto his hands.
Oh, and he is already showing me that he has no fear. He will stand up on his toys while looking over his playpen. 

He will be the death of me.

This week Jaxon got a cold which left us with no sleep. It didn't help that both Michael and I got sick too. Poor guy couldn't breath through his nose and it went straight to a cough. 
So glad he is getting over it.
We took him to see the doctor because we though maybe he had an ear infection but luckily he didn't.
He is now 25 3/4in long and weights 15lbs 15oz.

Here are some more pictures of these last two weeks.

P.s. dont forget to enter the giveaway!!

35 Weeks- 8 Months. A Taste Of Whats To Come.

People once told me I'd regret the day I said I wanted my son to crawl...
They were right. Ha!
Life was so much easier when Jaxon couldn't crawl, stand up and roll over.
Dont get me wrong, I'm so proud that he has learned it all (in just 2 weeks) and does such a great job at it, but man... my job just got ten times harder!
Anytime I try to change his diaper, he rolls over. Anytime I try to change his clothes, he rolls over.
Anything I don't want him messing with... he grabs at it. He crawls EVERYWHERE, so I put him in his playpen and he stands up and cries at me. 
But then he does his cute little smile and all things get better. He's lucky he's cute ;)

I will NEVER take off his amber ankle bracelet (and soon to be amber necklace) ever again.
He was so incredibly grumpy and we couldn't figure out why. He wouldn't sleep, he cried constantly and he just wasn't himself. Two days after no sleep we realized he didn't have his anklet on. Once we put it back on he slept 8 hours! Mike and I noticed a HUGE change in his attitude after that. Its insane how it works. I swear by it!

My little booger turned 8 Months this week. He is size three diapers and is almost getting too big for 3-6 month clothing. My baby is getting so big. I also got to celebrate Mothers Day for the first time. Jaxon was SOOO grumpy in the morning but the afternoon turned out really nice. We all went and hung out by the pool.

33 & 34 Weeks.

These last two weeks have been HUGE.
Week 33, Jaxon pulled himself up on michael like usual, but this time he let go and stood on his own! After that, thats all he wanted to do. He was very proud of himself.
He also started crawling!! I posted some of the videos on our Facebook page. He would do it a little bit and then sit down. He wasnt too sure he liked it.
AND... He started saying DADA again.

Week 34, Jaxon started crawling around even more. He does this weird thing where he puts one knee down and his other foot is on the ground pushing. As a game, I move to one side of the room and he would crawl to me, so I will move to the other side of the room and he would do the same.
When we were over at his grandparents house, Michael put him down to show them how he could crawl, but instead of putting his knees down, he put his feet down and pushed up into a standing position! He couldnt stay standing but that is the first step. Later he took two step when he was with dad. Boy of boy does this kid need to slow down! He is constantly on the move.
He loves crawling after the dogs. Animal lover already :)
To get him to crawl more, we will stack his blocks a little distance away from him so he has to crawl to knock them down. Such a little boy already.
He is a pain to try to change. The worst is when he has a poopy diaper. Now that he can roll over, he likes to do that while I'm whipping his butt...Ugh!

This is how I find him during nap time.

Attack of the pillow!
