"Mama efant. Baby efant." Jaxon was quite enamored with the baby elephant. She was born in September and her name is Daisy. We saw her in October when we went with the Bunch Family. She has grown quite a bit since then!
The giraffe looks so short
LOVE this picture!
For whatever reason, Jaxon has been mad at my dad since he last saw him in March. No one knows why, but whenever we would talk about "Abu" or Skype, Jaxon would yell, "NO!" He even went as far as saying that "Abu pushed me, Jaxon." So when he went up to Abu to give him a hug we were all relieved! Peace at last! He even cried the biggest, saddest tears I've ever seen when we dropped Abu off at the airport on Sunday.
Not exactly sure what I'm doing here...Abu, Jaxon & Lola (or "Yoya" as Jaxon lovingly calls her)Jaxon was intrigued with the mountain lion. I am so bummed that I did not have the video camera on 2 seconds after this picture! The mountain lion turned around & looked straight at Jaxon. Jax took giant steps back, his eyes got as big as saucers, he pointed to the mtn. lion and yelled, "NICE!" Now, days later, all he talks about is the mountain lion. "Mount yion not nice. Mouf." I guess the his mouth made an impression!"Mon Yoya! See tiger. See 'em?"Taking a little break with LolaBrian, Jaxon & Lola chatting about the mountain lion.This is how Brian wanted to spend the day at the zoo."Fish! Right dare Abu!" It was actually the seals & sea lions, but heaven forbid Jaxon actually believe us. He kept insisting they were fish. We would say, "They're seals." And he would say, 'NO! Fish!" Oh well!
On our way out we stopped to see the fish. Jaxon threw some of his snack (Goldfish & pretzels) to the fish. Well, I don't think he expected the fish to actually eat it! You see, Jaxon does not share food! Watch the video and you will see how upset he gets. He is still talking about the fish eating his food!
I ordered this from Wal-Mart. It was awesome! Who knew Wal-Mart made such cute cakes & tasty too.
I love how great Kellen & Sloan are with Jaxon. They played with him all night. And when we go to the pool or get together on weekends, they take such good care of him, even when other kids their age are around. Makes me happy.
Our neighbor "Tevin" (Kevin) This picture reminds me that I completely spaced taking a group picture! GRR! It was something I told myself to do, but forgot.
My birthday tradition is to make a stepping stone with Jaxon. I will do one every year until he's 5 and then maybe for each milestone birthday (10, 13, 16). I doubt he'll go for the one at 16, but if he's a good son he will!
The first one we did was as a newborn. He screamed and screamed and screamed. It was a bit traumatic for him, Ami, Sarah & me. Last years, he screamed too and would not open his hand. This year he did better, still screamed but it was, "Wash 'em! Wash ands" He does NOT like to have his hands dirty!
I may actually do another one. Once this one dried it didn't turn out as nice as the other 2. I guess that's what happens when you choose to buy the cheaper kit!
It was a great day & weekend ALL about Jaxon! I had a blast with his grandparents and the special friends who came to celebrate.
Next blog... our new playroom & the saddest boy around!
