Obsessed with monster trucks again! He's been watching Monster Jam on YouTube everyday. 

I have found catnip for toddlers... Just give them bubble wrap. Jax would lay there watching TV and just popping the bubble wrap.

I know Jax will be so good with Miss Hensley because he just adores babies. While we were at the hospital Saturday, just got to hang out with our neighbors and their 4 month old son, Ryan. They sent us pictures of him holding Ryan.

Week 25

How far along? 25 weeks
Baby is the size of: Cauliflower
Total weight gain: +1.5 (total + 8.5)

Maternity clothes? Yes, shorts.
Stretch marks? Not that I know of.

Best moment this week: My baby shower on my birthday. Even with it being outdoors and 107 degrees and the power going out for 1 1/2 hours... It still was perfect.
Movement: She loves moving around. It's starting to look like a little alien in me.

Food cravings: Sandwiches for Jersey Mikes. I make sure the heat the meat up so I can eat it.
Things that make me sick: stinky stuff like always but nothing that makes me want to throw up.
Gender: GIRL
Labor signs: No
Symptoms: Started getting the bad headaches again because of the weather changing.
Belly Button in or out? In but part of it is looking like it wants to stick out.
Wedding rings on or off? On
Feelings: Some days I'm good, others I want to rip someone's head off.
Looking forward to: Doing a 3D ultrasound 
Oils that are helping: Thieves and the Trio (peppermint, lavender and lemon) have been helping me a ton. With this crazy weather change, it's nice having something that can help me breathe better.

The shower was so much fun. My cousin, April, flew in from CO to surprise me for my shower/birthday. 
My mom and everyone made the most amazing food for the shower. They worked their butts off to make it amazing.
We were expecting it to be a high of 93 degrees but the lovely weather decided to change on us and it ended up being 107 degrees!! (It was an outdoor shower )
The worst part was the power outage throughout San Diego that lasted almost 2 hours. We even got a jumper for the kids, which of course didn't work.
We had all the guys play the bottle game. They had to put on adult size diapers, baby bibs and they had to drink a bottle filled half way with beer without using their hards. It was so funny to watch!


Jax got a cookie and as he was looking at it he said, " wow! Look at that!".
When we ask him to do something he says, " Hold on a second"
He will also say sorry to anything, like if I stub my toe.

We went to a fish store by us and they had this little area with small sharks and stingrays that you could feed. Jax got to drop food in to them and it was crazy watching the sharks jump out of the water.

I have found how to keep Jaxon entertained... Just give him bubble wrap. He will just sit there and pop it which gives me a nice break.

As we are walking down to the street fair, Mike decides to let out a loud fart and Jaxon's yells, "I did it!".
Jaxon is officially 3!! We had a very eventful day. Jax woke up and got to open his gift from us. He got a skateboard, M&Ms and some other stuff. Later that morning we went over to our friends house and they surprised Jax with donuts and a candle along with some awesome ninja turtle toys that he has been wanting! That night we met Nana, Papa, auntie Nikki and uncle Scottie along with their significant others for dinner. Jax had a blast with them and was having fun making silly faces.

Mike and I were at Target and we were letting Jax walk around with us instead of being in the cart. As we went down the snack isle, like any kid, he saw stuff he wanted and tried to put it in the cart. We kept telling him to put it back, and he did. I grabbed skittles and thought I was being sneaky when I put it in the cart but Jaxon saw me and yelled while pointing, " put it back!"
