What did you say?

Lately little Jaxson says things that make me wonder, how did you know that child? Or where did you think of that? Or who taught you that! Here are a few of the things this little boy surprises me with daily;)

"mommy, I have a fever! A hot one, like fire!"

Here's a recent conversation we had:
"mommy what happened to your face?"
I picked it...
Well, uh I had a zit....
"oh poor mommy" (then he proceeds to kiss the zit)

"mom baby brother not come from your tummy, he came from the target"

His newest thing when he wants something or needs help with something is always begun by saying "Mom should you..."
Mom should you get me some water
Mom should you button my jeans
Mom should you get my vitamins
Mom should you read me this book....

Don't get me started on the things he says to strangers.

"Are you smoking" he shouted across the park one day to another boys mom. The mom replied: "yes, that's why I am sitting away from the kids" Then Jax proceeded to ask her why she was smoking...

One day a man said something to us in the grocery store, and Jax said out loud: "Mom! who is that reee bad man!?

Then there was the Jesus faze. Anytime we were in public he would shout from the top of his lungs in the grocery cart: Jesus, Jesus, Jeeesusssss! I like Jesussssss!

One of my most favorite moments was in the target bra section. I was looking at bras when he announces: "Mom! I like boobs!" Oh gosh, I could have died!

This kid is pure entertainment. Most of the time Seth and I sit at the dinner table and just stare at each other in amazement and wonder where he came from...He's a happy boy thats for sure, always putting on some kind of show!
There is never a dull moment around these parts...I'm sure he's going to be teaching Mattix plenty of interesting things!

Boy do we love this kid!

Five months

Losing all 1100+ of my photos taught me that procrastination is not a trait I like about myself! You are actually going to be six months this coming week, so your five month post is long over due. I had all your five month pictures saved in my phone. Last weekend I needed my iphone fixed. So I took the darn phone to the apple store. The technician obviously didn't know what he was doing and erased all my photos! All the past 3 months of you and your brothers life was on there! All.of.them.

Two lessons learned here:
1. Don't trust the apple people just because they work for apple and are supposed to be "techy."
2. Don't procrastinate.

So I will just be posting random pictures that I took throughout the month. Luckily family and friends have been so kind to send me back the pictures that I have sent to them. I wasn't a very happy mommy, needless to say.

Well little guy,
You've grown up quite a bit this month. Not that I'm not happy that your growing and getting bigger. I just don't want you to get big too fast. And it seems as if that is what you are doing. All the fun new things that you learn and do everyday make you getting bigger a little less painful. This month you started working out your biceps and pushed yourself up off the floor. Hello, crawling? Were not quite ready for our five month old to crawl! But I suppose your brother is far too interesting of a guy for you to just sit there and stare at him, so you've got to go, I get it. You weighed in at 16 pounds 15 ounces at your last doctors visit. Your baby rolls are now uncountable. Even your little wrist has a roll! This month you did big things, like sitting in your bumbo for the first time. Since you had that mastered right from the get go, you decided to buck out of it, leaving us no choice but to have one hand on you at all times. One things leads to the next, so after bumbo seats comes trying out rice cereal, so that is just what we did. We only gave it to you a couple times this month since you are still young. I don't know if you are quite into it yet. Most of it came out and got smeared all over the place.  It did make for a good photo op. These things take time. You'll get it soon enough, and then before I know it you will be eating pancakes and eggs.
Your cheeks are just too huge not to kiss a thousand and five times a day. Even Jaxson loves to snuggle on you! You have the sweetest smile.You are quite the little chatter box too.
All kinds of exciting baby things are happening over here.
Slow down baby,
Slow down.

Here are a few photos from your fifth month of life.

Just look at those rolls:)

We love you Mattix,
