1 Year Old Pictures

We were fortunate to be able to have Jaidean ( take Jaxon's 1 Year Old Pictures. We went to Manito Park and Jaidean knows all the great spots to take pictures. They turned out amazing - hard to believe how big he is getting. Such a little man already. Here are just a few to enjoy....

Singing and playing!

Jaxon loves to sing and dance! We can hear any type of music or beat and he just starts bopping his head, swinging his arms, and spinning in circles! He especially loves kids songs and has learned the hand motions to many of the songs. We captured him after breakfast on Halloween morning doing the motions to some of his favorites.

Ready to listen....

"Itsy bitsy spider" (This is the down came the rain part...)

"Where is thumbkin?" He loves moving his fingers to this song.

"If you're happy and you know it"....Clap your hands.

"Head and Shoulders..."
I guess I haven't updated in a while as far as his new "skills". He can now count to two - we are currently working on moving up to three :-) He loves books and can point out many objects in the books that you ask him to (ball, shoes, phone, tv, dog, cat, airplane, tricycle, socks, flower, baby, bird, pumpkin, etc. etc.) He says "mama, daddy, bubba, banana, ball, bottle, grandma, grandpa, bye bye, night night, snack, that?" He can point to many body parts of his when asked - nose, eyes, tongue, teeth, ear, hair, head, belly, bellybutton, fingers, toes - and we're working on knees and elbows. Halloween was his first official day with no bottles. He didn't seem to mind at all. He doesn't really have any "security objects" that he has to have, guess he feels very loved and secure :-) He graduated to a big boy car seating, facing forward and absolutely LOVES it! Takes only one nap per day - about 2 hours in the afternoon and finally sleeps through the night (most nights). Has learned to open all the drawers and cupboards in the house - guess it's time for the latches! Jaxon is on the go non-stop all day long, like most typical one year olds I'm sure....if he's not dancing to whatever music is on, he's running (and I mean running!) around the house laughing and having a great time! We are having so much fun with him and can't seem to get enough time to enjoy him. I hear it just keeps getting more fun - we can't wait!

New haircut!

It seems like we just took Jaxon for his first haircut, but it was already getting pretty long, so we took him in for another haircut. Here are a few pictures of him having lunch just after getting his hair cut (the stylist put lots of gel in it). He was having a great time eating lunch and showing off his new haircut.

Dressed Myself!

Daddy let Jaxon pick out his outfit the other day - wow, doesn't this look good? Football shirt with unzipped pajamas over the top, legs not in so it flies like a cape..... I did change his outfit before we actually went anywhere!

Greenbluff Pumpkin Patch Trip 2010

The weekend before Halloween we went up to Greenbluff to the Pumpkin Patch with our friends, the Kaufmans. Jaxon absolutely adores Brent and Jen's kids (especially the girls, although I have no doubt that by next summer, he and Chase will be the best of friends!!) The weather was a little wet and cold, but we didn't get rained on, which was nice. Then after we were through, we went back to their house for Chili, Cornbread and Pumpkin Bars - yum! Here are a few photos of our fun day!

Kayla, Jaxon and Hailey at one of the first pumpkins they found.

At the end of the maze - photo with all the kiddos, Chase, Kayla, Jaxon and Hailey!

Ok, how about this one?

Uncle Jesse's Visit!

Jaxon's Uncle Jesse came home for his first visit since leaving for college in August. It was a surprise for Grandma and Grandpa and boy were they surprised!! :-) He came to our house on Friday and we went to the DPHS Homecoming Football game (which they won in a GREAT game) then Kim and Greg came over for breakfas the next morning (Greg thought he was helping Jason install a new microwave and Kim thought I had to work, so she was going to watch Jaxon). Just as they were getting their coffee upstairs, Jesse came up from downstairs and surprised them both. We had a great weekend visiting and getting caught up on all that is new in Uncle Jesse's life. As you can see, Jaxon loved having all the company too!
