Me and my hands

I love my hands. No matter how tight mom and dad swaddle me I manage to get my arms out. When I sleep I need to have my hands next to my face. As you might be able see I often scratch my self on the face as a result. When mom cuts my nails she often cuts me too. I try to be strong, but I cry because it hurts.

We tried getting a good picture of Jaxson, but with a digital camera it is difficult to snap a shot without him moving. He is a wiggler.

Our First Sunday at Church

This was Jaxson's first Sunday at Church. He did very good. He slept through Sacrament, Sunday school, and ate during Relief Society. Most Sunday's we sit with our friends the Hartman's. They have a one year old son named Christopher. This last week he was so enthralled with the baby. He saw me rocking the car seat next to me on the bench. He was sitting on Tyson's lap trying to look at Jaxson. Eventually Christopher ended up on my lap. As I sat listening to the speakers, I looked down at Christopher and his little hand was on the car seat helping me rock Jaxson. It was so cute.

We love to nap!

Jaxson hasn't taken to his bathes yet, but it will only take time. He does love when it is over and we wrap him in his big monkey towel. Jaxson's arms and legs are so long and skinny. He has gained about 6 oz. as of two days ago. His face is starting to fill out. Posted by Picasa

Jaxson at his best! Jaxson loves to sleep. He only woke once last night and had two four hour stretches of sleep. I feel like a champ this morning. Tyson went back to work today and will have class tonight. Posted by Picasa

Our First Outing

Yesterday we took Jaxson out for the first time. Our kitchen table needed to be replaced, so we decided to check out the sales. Before we left I wanted to feed Jaxson, so I asked Tyson to pack up the diaper bag. We packed it full of all the necessities even additional outfits because Jaxson loves to pee through his clothes. The time came for Jaxson to be feed again when I realized that we didn't grab the diaper bag. We had already been out for about two hours and he was going to need a diaper change. We hoped that he'd make it until we got home, then while feeding I felt a little explosion in his diaper. We still had to go back and buy the table. I then felt like a terrible mother as he'd have to wait til we got home. What type of mom leaves the diaper bag at home when she has a week old baby. Fortunately the furniture store was next to Babies R Us, so while Tyson bought the table I ran next door and bought diapers and wipes. I was relieved when I went into the mothers lounge and there were no other mothers preasant, I could only image what they would think if they saw me without a diaper bag. I'm pretty confident I will never forget the diaper bag again. I felt so bad for little Jaxson.

I'm so cute!!! Posted by Picasa

Jaxson is taking this saying to the bank. He actually is doing really well at night, he's currently waking two times at night. It's been really nice having Tyson home this week; however he has to go back to work on Monday. I told him he should take a little more time off. Posted by Picasa

Jaxson right after we came home from the hosptial was very tired. He was chilling out on mom and dads bed. Posted by Picasa

He's here!

Jaxson Broderick

Jaxson has finally entered this big world and is doing great. The labor and delivery were much easier than I had expected which means Jaxson will not be an only child. Jaxson weighed in at8 pounds 6 ounces and 19 3/4 inches long. We are so thrilled and love this little guy so much. We are home now and he seems to be doing great. He is very alert and very strong.All the doctors and nurses said he is a handsome baby and as you can see for yourself he is! He is excited to meet all his new family and friends. Posted by Picasa
