9 week photo shoot

Our friend Grace gave us another photo shoot of Jaxon the other day. In these pictures he is 9 1/2 weeks old. It's amazing how fast he's growing. Here's a little bit about Jax:
  • loves to look at the ceiling. No matter how exciting anything else may be, if he decides he wants to look up, there's no changing his mind. He arches his back and neck just so he can see up. It looks very uncomfortable.
  • he does lots of smiling and he tells us stories now too. He also tells his toys stories.
  • the last 2 nights he has slept at least 8 hours at a time! Woo Hoo!!!! I'm trying not to count on it to continue so I'm not too disappointed if he changes his mind about it.
  • he just got a swing and he loves it.
  • he doesn't want to miss anything. If we're out and he needs to be sleeping, I have to hold him and put a light blanket over his head so he can't see anything, then he falls right to sleep (don't worry, I always make sure he can still breathe :)
  • he really recognizes Dan as his daddy now. He smiles right away when Dan talks to him. So sweet.

    He is so very sweet! Looking like Dan to me... enjoy these days.

  3. Such adorable pictures! I love his eyes. She did a great job on the pictures...but she had a pretty cute subject to work with.

    Thanks for commenting on the new look on my blog. If you scroll down to the end of the page (when you're on my blog) you can click on the link entitle "made by Lena". That will take you to the site that Alysun showed me and this Lena woman has a ton of great looking free templates.

  4. What gorgeous pictures! He is too adorable Laura. Great news about him sleeping 8 hours at night!!! Your hard work and consistency is paying off :)
