this & that

Jaxon is LOVING his jolly jumper now. We started him in it about a week ago and at first he would just hang out in it and bounce the odd time. Now he's starting to figure out his rhythm and he's getting better at bouncing. He gets so proud of himself when he has a really good bounce.

Dan walked out the door for work one day last week and saw this! haha.........we were pretty sure we knew who did it and it was confirmed when pictures showed up on Facebook! We had to laugh. Our poor neighbor called me that morning concerned that something had actually happened.

We've found something that helps us get through Jaxon's evening fussy time..........massages! Actually, I think he just likes being naked and the massage is just a bonus. He'll be all fussy and as soon as I lay him down on that blanket and take his clothes off he's a happy boy! It's definitely his favorite time of the day and it gets him through till bedtime!

A question for all you moms out do I keep Jaxon's little arms warm at night? I put warm sleepers on him but he doesn't keep his arms in his swaddle and they get kind chilly at night. Any ideas?


  1. I have the same problem with I just put a little heater in the room and it keeps it a bit warmer in there and she actually seems to sleep better because I think she's not as cold. :)

  2. Laura, I found you through Tina's blog.

    I sleep with my babies so we don't really have that problem.

    And, being a fre fighter's wife I just want to remind you to use proper cords with any heaters you use. Too many house fires are cause by cords that are too small for the appliance there are supplying.

    I think we have much in common; we too lost a little one - 12 days old. Come by and check out my blog sometime. Leave me as message so I know you were there.

    Oh and Jaxon can't be much older than my youngest, born late October 2008.
