14 months today

One day old
Blowing kisses to Mommy already!!

Jaxton is 14 months!
He wasn't to excited about getting his picture taken 1st thing this morning

It is hard to believe that Jaxton was born 14 months ago. Time has flown by too fast. He woke up a little cranky this morning. He might have not liked that I started his day off by taking his picture. I have been working in my classroom and on lesson plans (doesn't that sound exciting) the past few days. My co-teacher's baby is due September 5, so we have been working on getting lesson plans ready for her maternity leave. I am glad I will have mine done so far in advanced since I am taking two graduate classes this semester. This will relieve some of the stress off of me during the first semester of school. This afternoon we visited with MeMa (Jaxton's great-grandmother). He was so good and wanted to give all of his love to MeMa while we were there. Jaxton is the only great-grandson on that side of the family. Matter of fact he is the only baby we have on that side. The next youngest grandchild is nineteen so Jaxton gets extra spoiled.

What a weekend so far

Helping his daddy!

My little dare devil

What Jaxton does when you ask him where his tongue is

So far it has been a productive weekend (I wish I could say that about every one of them). We started out Friday by finishing rewiring some of our internet cables. Now we can have internet in any room (something we should have thought of when we built our house). Jaxton really wanted to help us. Anytime he see someone working with tools he has to help. Afterwards, we decided to convert Jaxton's crib into a toddler bed. I am sad to see his crib gone (even though he hardly slept in it). Since he started teething at 11 months, he has refused to sleep in his crib, so we resorted to a pallet beside our bed. We have finally decided to make the move and put him in his own room. He slept for a total of 3 hours in it his first night and took two short naps in it the next day. We will see how his second night goes. After we assembled the bed, we headed to Paragould to pick up Brandon's work van, brought it home, and then went to Jonesboro to run errands and grocery shop. On Saturday, we finally decluttered and organized our office. A project I have put off all summer. But is feels great to have it completed and another item on my summer to do list checked off. Now if I can just finish the rest before school starts....

Another Workshop

Today I had another workshop to attend. I must admit this one was quite boring. We did receive some valuable information, but I could barely keep my eyes open. Thankfully I had friends there to talk to. Amber was at the workshop and I ran into Mandi at lunch. It is so funny how you go so long without seeing people and then you start running into them periodically. Jaxton and I are glad daddy is home from his business trip (if that is what you call it when it is in Tunica =) )!! Since it was so nice this afternoon we let Jaxton play outside. We weeded the flower beds (which we let go a little to long this time) while Jaxton moved rocks. He loves it outside. He would rather play in the dirt and rocks if we would let him all the time. He is a typical boy.

I finally created a blog!! It will take me a little while to get use to this. Not much goes on in my life except chasing a wonderful 13 month old boy named Jaxton. Today Brandon left for his business trip to Tunica, MS. I know that sounds like a rough trip huh!! Jaxton already misses his daddy, but he will be home Wednesday night. I spent the good part of the day cleaning desks in my classroom. I am hoping to be done with my room next week so I can enjoy August before school and my ASU classes start.
