Three Months

Our baby is three months old today!  Here are some of the reasons we love our baby this month...

  • He is laughing-usually when we tickle him or blow a raspberry, but sometimes even when we are just talking to him
  • He is over 15 lbs and 25 in long
  • He usually sleeps 8-9 hours straight every night
  • He is interacting with his toys and loves to grab hold of them
  • He loves to lift his legs and scootch around on his play mat....rolling is just around the corner! 
  • He loves to chew on Daddy's fingers and slobber all over...teething?

Happenings at Home

We had a great Christmas break, but are glad to be back in Colorado in our own apartment.  Jaxson is growing everyday and it is so fun to watch as he learning new things!

Jaxson had his 2 month check up with lots of shots.  He was a tough boy and only cried a little bit.  We found out he weighs 15 lb. 7 oz.

 Grandma Cook got Jaxson a mobile for Christmas and he loves it!

He is starting to swat at his toys and grab onto them...he loves his little lady bug friend

One of his new favorite things to do is to chew on daddy's fingers.  Both of my boys end up in a drooly mess.

This bear suit used to drown my little man.  Now we can't even zip it up all the way.

We discovered recently that Jaxson loves to watch TV.  He was pretty disappointing when the Broncos lost :).

Jaxson's Blessing

Jaxson was blessed on Jan. 6th in Tyson's parents ward after church.  It was a beautiful blessing and afterward we gathered at Tyson's parents house for dinner.

The Rest of the Break

We had a great Christmas break with family and friends.  Here are some pictures of the rest of the break after Christmas.

Snuggling with Grandpa

 Hanging out with Grandma

 We've been wanting to try Jaxson's hair in a fohawk for awhile since it is so long.  Tyson finally tried it, and it turned out pretty cute :)
 My boys and their stylish hair :)

 One of Tyson's presents was tickets to the Jazz v Timberwolves game.  It was a fun double date with Tyson's parents.  Plus the Jazz won...go Jazz!

Over the break I was able to see two of my mission companions, Liz and Diane.  I forgot to get a picture with Liz, but here we are with Diane!
One morning I came back from the bathroom to find Jaxson waiting for me like this 

While we were staying at my parents house, Jaxson stayed in this cradle made by my Grandpa Sawyer.  It was very special to me since Jaxson was never able to meet this incredible man here on earth.

The Camera Loves Our Little Boy!

Jaxson did so good for his first professional photo shoot.  He slept for some, was awake for most, and even cracked the tiniest of smiles :).

 And he's awake....

 This was his favorite look 

 Being this cute is tough

 We sure do love this little sweetheart :)

Family Pictures

For Christmas my parents gave us a photo shoot from Camera Shy Photography in Lehi.  We were very pleased with the results.  Here are some fun pictures of our family.

 He really does love our kisses I promise!
 My boys :)

Love this one!
