My Six Month Old Boy

My baby boy is six months old! Will he really be ONE in six more?
This little guy brings me more joy, happiness, laughs, and smiles than I ever could have imagined. I love every day with my little Jax.

Here are some of Jax's new tricks in pictures:

1. He flexes his legs over and over, scrunches his face, and sniffs!
He used to laugh while doing this and we thought it was really he kind of grunts and usually ends up crying. He is getting good at telling us what he wants!

2. Last week, Jax saw his first snow! Dad took him outside during his break and they played!

3. Jax can now fall asleep in any situation...even while jumping!
Can you do that? 

4. He sits up now!
I was always so scared to sit him up because I didn't want him to fall over. One day, I just sat him up, and he sat! UM, when did he go from laying in my arms to sitting all by himself on the floor?!

5. He has become even MORE cute.

6. He was very brave during shots. Look at those cute legs!
(and I was braver too. I didn't cry this time!)

Love that baby!

My little Jax,
I love you so much more than you will ever know! I love waking up in the morning and looking at you sleeping, knowing that I get to play with you all day. I love cuddling you in the middle of the night and when you wake up from your naps. I love when I hear you cry and know that you just want me. I love watching you grow every day. I am so excited about every little new thing you do. I love talking to you, singing to you and watching you play. I love bathing you, changing your diaper, feeding you and comforting you. There is nothing I would rather be doing than spending my days with you! You make me so happy Jax. I love being your mommy!
