Family Update

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! Our family sure did. We went to church and spent the day with friends and had a delicious dinner.

Jaxon met the Easter bunny at the mall this past week and took a picture together. He also had a very adorable outfit that his Uncle Alex and Aunt Donielle got him. We took his pictures wearing a little bunny hat and 'My first Easter' outfit. We also attended an Easter party that Jake's squadron put together.

We have just been enjoying family time lately. Jake and I got our car locks fixed finally! 3 out of the 4 doors' locks didn't work and thank goodness for the extended warranty we purchased. We only had to pay taxes for the parts and labor. Without the insurance it would have cost us over $750! Our sunroof still leaks a little bit when going through a car wash but Jake thinks he can fix that on his own since our warranty won't cover that. We're looking into trading in the SUV this summer for a car. Only getting 16 mpg with the SUV is killing us with gas prices. We are looking at the new Hyundai Accent or Elantra. They're really fuel efficient and have great warranties.

Jake is still into his hobby of flying RC airplanes. He spends his Saturday mornings at the air field with 4 of his planes. He wants to start building a toy box for Jaxon and will probably start that project in the next couple of weeks.

Jaxon is the happiest boy around. He started reacting to playing peek-a-boo and cracks up when we play. He is better at going to sleep at night but still struggles with his daytime naps. I'm going to start "sleep training" him within the next month. I'll probably start when Jake is gone later this month for some training so he doesn't have to listen to Jaxon cry. I have officially changed out all of his 0-3 month clothes in his closet and dresser to 3-6 month. I cant' believe how tiny he used to be!! We also had a follow-up dermatology appointment yesterday and we're scheduling another laser treatment for later this month. Jaxon's newest thing is squealing and he'll squeal if he can see you but you aren't paying attention to him. It's so cute!!

We bought plane tickets to fly home from June 7-17th to visit you all! We are so excited that all of us as a family will be able to be in KC. I hope Jaxon will be as good on the plane this time as he was last time.

Here are some pictures from the past few weeks:

  1. Aww, my boy has the same outfit that Jaxon wore to meet the Easter bunny! I'll post pics of him in it soon (he wore it on Easter).

    1. We love that outfit! He's growing out of the shirt though so I'll have to get a bigger size.
