My New Tricks

Our little Jaxy is not so little anymore and growing up way to fast! He has lots of new tricks so here is a list of a few:

  • Rolling all over the place
  • Grabbing his feet
  • The "standing trick" (see picture below)
  • Sitting up in his bouncer
  • Talking, talking, talking!!
  • Holding his head up
  • Sitting in the Bumbo. He now relates this to eating which he LOVES
  • Eating solids (rice cereal, carrots, sweet potato and pears)
  • Kissing (I put my cheek next to his mouth and say "kisses" and he does a HUGE smile like he knows what he's doing)
I can't believe our little man is gonna be 5 months in a few days! The days keep flying by and I am soaking up every moment with him. Here's a few photos for you to soak up, Mom!

The standing trick!!

Happy 4 months Jaxy Boy

I cannot believe my little man is 4 months already! He is as cute as ever and has lots of new tricks. His best one is rolling front to back, and then back to front. Sometimes I walk in on him sleeping on his side, which is too cute. He has the best personality. He loves people and loves going out. I think he gets sick of hanging out with me around the house (I'm a bit of a homebody these days). He is holding his head up really well now. He used to have floppy legs and now he's learned how to stiffen his legs and is standing up now.

On his 4 month birthday, I went to my first day of work. The school Heath works at need casual teacher's aides so I told them I could work. It's only when other teacher's aides call in sick so it's not often. I couldn't help but cry a little when I left him (we've spent everyday together since BIRTH, give me a break) but I knew he was in good hands with Gamma Hart. And he had a great day! When I came home, he didn't even act like he missed me!

Here are some snapshots over the last couple weeks of my lovely little fellow.

Why do I love sleeping photos so much??

Courtney got me Jamie Oliver's 30 Minute Meals Cookbook so I've been making tons of meals from this! Here is my Crispy Salmon, Jazzed-up Rice, Courgette salad and guacamole. Soo good!!

Jax's passport photos!! He was such a good boy while they took these.

Going swimming in the pool!

Someone's discovered their tongue!

Getting his 4 month immunizations...not sure if it was more traumatizing for him or me!

I feel so incredibly lucky to have this guy in my life. His personality is shining through more everyday and is such a sweet boy! We love you Jaxy boy!
