We took Jaxson swimming for the first time today...he loved it!  Well, he kicked his legs a bunch because I think he thought he was in his bouncer, and he splashed a lot, so we think he loved it :).

Seven Months

Jaxson is seven months old!  We just can't believe how fast he is growing.  He is learning so many new things all the time.  Here are some of the reasons we love our baby this month...

  • He loves to ride on Daddy's shoulders (and use his hair as handles :))
  • He can sit up all by himself and loves to play with toys
  • He eats baby food regularly, even the nasty smelling kind
  • He gets on his hands and knees, but still prefers the scooting method to get around
  • He keeps us on our toes as he already is looking for trouble 
  • His smile and laugh are the highlights of any day

Behind the scenes

The only smile we got out of him, but too close up :(
 Trying to get the monkey again

Trying to distract him with his teddy so he will forget about the monkey

 Most of the time he tried to roll away and got mad because we wouldn't let him

 Gangnam Style!

Mother's Day

We were at Tyson's parents house for Mother's Day and got to celebrate it with Tyson's mom!

Making chocolate covered strawberries for Becky (we made some for my mom too, but a few days later :))

 Last Mother's Day I was pregnant, but this year we have Jaxson!  I love being a mom and could never describe how much I love my baby.

Playing Outside

It was such good weather while we were in Utah.  We love being outside!

Swinging at the park :)

Having fun on the slide

 Jaxson is not a huge fan of the texture of grass yet, but we'll get there

 This picture doesn't show it, but Jaxson LOVES dogs, they make him smile and giggle

 Seeing a kitten for the first time

Jaxson needs a little help in being gentle

Grandpa and Grandma Cook's

Tyson got an internship in Denver, so in between the end of the semester and the internship starting, we went to Utah for a week.  First we went to Grandpa and Grandma Cooks.  It was so fun to spend time with family, especially since Tom, Laura, and Kenna were able to come up for the weekend too!

Playing with Aunt Kenna!

Kenna gave Jaxson her old teddy bear, and he loves it!
