Jaxson's First Birthday Party

For Jaxson's first birthday, my mom and Tyson's mom came from Utah for 4 days to celebrate!  We had so much fun with them, and Jaxson was so cute with his grandma's :).  I'm so grateful that our mom's could road trip together and share their grandbaby for a great weekend. 
We took A LOT of pictures during their visit, so their will be a lot of blog posts :).  This one is about the birthday party we threw for the little one year old.

When I made Jaxson's birthday cake I was trying to be super heathy (banana's, applesauce, wheat flour, vanilla, and maybe one other ingredient).  It wasn't his favorite (and who can blame him) but he did enjoy playing with it :).

Grandpa Cook was on Face Time, and Jaxson wanted to share his cake :)
Jaxson got a lot of fun gifts for his birthday-a toy dog, a batman shirt, blocks, a flannel wall, a crib toy, alaska pajamas and book, bathketball (a tub toy), and some other cute shirts and books.  He liked to rip the paper off slowly and hand us each piece :)

Jaxson's Monthly Growth

We're so glad that we had the idea to take a similar picture every month to see Jaxson's growth in the first year.  We hope to keep up this tradition with our future children, but we will probably have them sit up once they are able so we don't have to fight to keep them still like we did with Jaxson :). 

Twelve Months

Jaxson is 12 months old....a whole year old!  We just cannot believe it has been a year already.  There are a lot of pictures coming about Jaxson's birthday, but here is our traditional monthly picture with a few reasons why we love our baby this month...

  • He gives the best hugs.  If we crouch down and put our arms out, he runs into them with a huge smile on his face.
  • He loves to go outside.  As soon as he sees his shoes he gets excited and pulls us towards the door.
  • His favorite things are books, cars, balls, and of course Teddy.
  • Sometimes if we're lucky he will give us a big slobbery kiss on the cheek.

Behind the Scenes
Look how big he is compared to the monkey now!

Early Birthday Celebration

Jaxson has 2 friends, Maggie and Reese, who were also born in the month of October.  They will all be one this month!  We decided to celebrate a little early and let them eat cake :).  We went a little crazy with pictures, but this kid is just too cute!

 Love this goofy boy!

"This is all for me?  I don't even know where to start!"

He was a little confused by the frosting, but once he got past it, he loved it!

We didn't have a lot going on in September, just a lot of Jaxson walking and being cute :).  Here's the random pictures for this month.

These next few pictures are of Jaxson eating corn on the cob.  I thought it was so cute so I went to take a picture.  He knows that the camera flashes, so he kept squinting his eyes to prepare for the flash :)
