My baby boy turned eleven months today! Can you believe it?! I can't. This is SUCH a fun age! It seems like he does some cute new thing every day. All throughout the day I just hug him and hold him and even that doesn't satisfy how much I crave just kissing his face and cuddling him constantly! I can never get enough. He is my little sidekick and best friend. He makes me so happy every day!
I don't know how in the world I ever lived without my Jaxers.

*Since we have moved, we haven't have any pictures of Jesus in our home. I really really wanted Jax to recognize who He is, so when my mom and I were at the church bookstore, I bought a little picture just to show Jax every day. Ever since the first time I showed Jax the picture, he holds it in his hands, smiles and just kisses it over and over. It is the neatest thing. I know that Jax knows Him and remembers being with Him before He came to earth. It makes me want to try harder every day to be better myself, so I can always help Jax to keep that special connection and testimony he already has. Every morning when we're eating breakfast, we look at the picture and talk about who He is. I am so grateful to have my pure, perfect, special little boy to be an example to me.
Love you Jaxers. I am so grateful that I get to be your mommy.
