Eleven Months

Jaxson is 11 months old!  We can't believe how old he is!  Here are some of the reasons we love our baby this month.....

  • He is walking like crazy.  He usually chooses to walk over crawl.
  • He is starting to imitate things we do like talk on the phone, waving goodbye.
  • His favorite foods are bananas, humus, and cantelope.
  • He is learning to play with friends (Maggie and Reese), sometimes he pulls hair and smacks them on the head, but he is learning.
  • One of his favorite games is to throw a ball-beach ball, tennis ball, dodge ball....

Behind the Scenes
This photo shoot was the smoothest one we've had since our little man became mobile :).  We tried the golf club approach again, but quickly went to the stuffed animal method which worked like a charm.

A Visit to the Park

We are blessed to have a park close by our apartment that we can go to often.

Jaxson doesn't look excited, but he was :) 

 Going down the slide :)

Randomness From August

After we came back from Utah life slowed back down, then sped up again as Tyson started his last semester in graduate school, working at IHS part time, and I went back to chasing our little munchkin around all day.  Life is busy, but life is good.  Here are some random pictures from August.

At the beginning of August, we went to a Real vs. CO Rapids soccer game here in Denver.  It was a lot of fun, but pretty loud for our little guy (hence the hat to block out some noise).   

I can't get over those big blue eyes :) 

I had to document how Jaxson sits with his little feet crossed, he does it a lot 

This kid is a multi-tasker.  He can still use both hands to play in the Tupperware drawer while chewing on his teething ring :)
Jaxson LOVES bananas.  And sometimes he likes Cheerios, it depends on the week :)

Watching something sports related with Daddy.  Notice how Jaxson is holding the remote...this boy loves technology too much already :)

Bear Lake

After the wedding, we headed up to Bear Lake to spend the weekend with my family at the cabin.  They've been installing new windows and painting the cabin, so we worked a lot but we also played and had fun :)

We played a game where Jaxson would throw the ball down to Grandpa Robert, then he would throw it back up :)

On Sunday we drove and hiked to a lake, it was beautiful!  Somehow while we were admiring the beauty around us, Jaxson's pants came off, then his diaper...

Family Pictures

At Tom and Laura's reception, Tyson's Aunt GayLynn had a very nice camera and was sweet enough to take some pictures of us.


Aunt Kenna called this Jaxson's GQ pose :)
