Happiest Birthday Jaxy!

I've been moping around the house all morning thinking about my sweet baby being one today. Such a bitter sweet day for me. What a cute and fun little young man he has become! He is truly a little boy - loves eating EVERYTHING, tries to climb and sit on everything, loves to kiss and cuddle (only on his terms though), sings song with us when we put him to bed, laughs at loud noises and people getting hurt, loves to be chased, loves to run away from everyone (except papa) and waves goodbye at anyone who is acting like they are leaving (shoes on, keys in hand, standing at the front door). He is the most wonderful person in my life and I feel so blessed I get to spend everyday with him!

Here are some (a lot) of pictures from the last month in Australia, Hawaii and AZ (and yes, he loves to travel like mama and papa).

Bowling for Heath's birthday. I love this little bear suit! 

 All ready for church

 Watching daddy's football game with the cousins

 Lamingtons for our State of Origin Party (the Superbowl of Rugby)...mmmmm

 This pictures just makes me laugh! I set him in the chair so I could hang up laundry and when I came back, he was slouched down like this! He was comfy though

 Dressed warm for daddy's last AFL game

 Heath's sister Renae got us tickets to Australia's Got Talent. It was pretty cool.


 Bubba Gump's

 Hanauma Bay...such an amazing place to snorkel!
 Polynesian Cultural Center

 Luau...best food!!!

 My sister Kimberlee invited us to the Phoenix Children's Museum of Art and there are a bunch of other pictures you can see from that day here but I wanted to post this picture because I have no idea how I captured this moment! He was having the best time playing with these drapes and had a kung fu grip on that frying pan. I feel like his face says it all in this picture. 

Happiest Birthday to my Jaxy Boy!! Cannot wait to make more fun memories with you and your new sibling!

End of Summer

Fall is finally here, which I don't usually look forward to but in Australia, with no air conditioning, I am counting down the days till it's cold! Heath has been on school holidays the last 2 weeks (LOVE being married to a teacher) so we just been going out to eat, swimming, playing ping pong, hanging out with cousins, watching movies and spending time with our number one guy. Here are a few photos from the last couple weeks.

We got to spend time with our two nieces and nephew while Heath's sister went to Girl's Camp. They pretty much babysat Jax for me for 3 days! They loved being with their little baby cousin.
Yes, the pool was chilly!

We bought Jax a new floaty for the pool...he didn't really like it.

My little bear!
I can fly like cousin Sawyer!
Running my own bath
Sushi train!

Jax rarely lays in bed with us, he always just wants to play. We brought him in one morning and he was just happy to lay on the pillow with us. So cute.

Jolly Jumpin Jax hanging out with the boys!

We took Jax and his cousins into the city to watch Dora and friends and get their faces painted.

Rachel, Paige and Gabriel

Jax was mesmerized by Dora!

Getting his American passport photos

I don't know what got into us but we thought 'Let's take Jax to a movie with us. He'll just sleep  and it will be easy!" never. do. that. again. He was so overtired and I think the movie was stimulating him more than making him sleepy so Heath had to stand in the aisle by the door and play with him the whole movie. He ended up falling asleep the last 20 minutes. But we managed to get a cute picture of our boy (sorry for the bad quality).

Heath is back to school this week and so am I! I got a contract at Heath's school to work 1 day a week as a teacher aide. I don't really want to leave Jax but it's only one day a week and it gives him quality time with his aunty and Gamma Hart.
