Yep…Jaxon is two and a half! Um, going on sixteen! Always wanting to (pretend to) drive mommy’s car, ride 4-wheelers, pretty much anything that has wheels. ‘I drive! I drive!’ Loves to ride his bike too…he totally smoked this little four year old riding in the neighborhood. Not trying to brag, but he’s fast.

Holy temper tantrums! They wouldn’t be so bad, but I have the strongest child in America. I’m trying to get back in shape, but geez! We’ve had a few car seat fits and they were awful. Standing next to the car in a parking lot with a screaming child…I’m sure some of you have been there before. But, when he’s not throwing a fit, Jax is so helpful and sweet. He brings me his cup when he’s thirsty, always says ‘pease’ and ‘tank you’. He knows how to feed the dog…oh how he loves his dog, Georgie. Waters the flowers. Throws his trash away. Picks up his toys (occasionally). Such a little helper.
Just some faves…favorite word is ‘Nope’, ‘Milk’, and ‘Roar!’. Favorite food is cheese. Favorite thing to do is ‘sit porch’. Favorite toys are ‘hairplanes’ and ‘inosaurs’.

ow…it’s so easy to get behind. Baby Casen is a month old now. See his photo on his page here. I am trying to soak up every minute, but he is growing so fast and changing so quickly…already out of newborn clothes and diapers! Other than the hiccups, a little baby acne and the toots…he is such a good baby. Sleeps well during the night, I only have to get up once to feed him. Just like clockwork.
Case had a few ‘firsts’ this month. He went to the swimming pool this past Memorial weekend…had a blast sleeping and stretching in the shade. Took his first road trip. We visited my sister and brother-in-law who are expecting a baby girl really soon! He broke in the baby bouncer for her. And in case you missed it, he had his first photoshoot too!
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
ast month was quite possibly the longest month of my life. Waiting for baby Casen to arrive. Well guess what…he was two weeks old on Saturday! And Jaxon was 28 months! Boys.
Jax is our little wild man. So dramatic, I think he will be on Broadway by the time he’s five. He has the funniest facial expressions. Reminds me of myself when I was little…always acting silly to get attention. His new thing is putting his hands on his hips. Go. go. go. A hundred miles an hour all the time. Says ‘hi’ to everyone, even strangers at the grocery store. He is also into saying ‘bye’ too…his toys, our house, even his little brother, ‘Bye baybee Tasen’. So sweet. He is learning how to count (he thinks he’s blowing out candles). Loves to jump. Draw. ‘Sit porch’. Basically be outside 24/7. Amazed by bubbles and glow sticks. Hates naps. Not a fan of eating…although he loves melon and berries. He could live on just milk or juice. Actually, he says it so much, it’s becoming a double word at our home. ‘Milkjuice’.
Case is such a good baby! Every now an then we get a poop explosion that breaks up the routine, but other than that, he just has his daily dose of the hiccups. He looks like a tiny angel when he sleeps. Speaking of sleeping, this little guy only wakes up once in the middle of the night. I think I’m getting more rest now than when I was pregnant. I have a feeling that he is going to be the complete opposite of Jaxon. They will become the best of pals.
