3 Months

Seriously, where does the time go? Daxton is 3 months old now and every day i can't believe how big he is. Look at the little chunker! He doesn't have a Dr. appointment for a while, so i don't know what he weighs, but probably around 12 lbs.... maybe a tad more. I am LOVING the chubby cheeks, neck rolls, double chin, and thighs. Oh, the thighs are my favorite! I still wanted to document some of the things he is doing right now so i won't forget.

You could sit him in front of a mirror ALL day and he would just talk to himself non-stop. It's one of our favorite activities. I am not sure if he knows it is him, but it's funny to watch him get all bashful when he smiles at himself.

He sleeps like this 90% of the time. With his little arm folded under his face and his binki (which you can barely see in this picture) tucked right in the arm fold. So cute. I could just watch him sleep for hours. Yeah, and i do swaddle him SO tight. We are trying to wean him from swaddling right now. It's not going so well. I heard that you are supposed to stop swaddling them around 3-4 months for gross motor skill development. Hmmmm, i'm working on it!

We visited Noelle and Zak in Rexburg over the weekend. Poor Emrie gets her two cousins mixed up. They are they same age and their names are Daxton and Jaxton. Poor thing, so confusing for a 2 year old! We can't get her to say Daxton for ANYTHING! It's adorable though.

He LOVES his Star and Bug. They are his first little friends. He smiles at them like they are real people and talks to them and it sounds like he is really trying to conversate! Thank goodness for his little buddies so mommy can get things done.

Oh, i just love this picture. He is getting really good at lifting his head during tummy time and it makes for some pretty cute pictures. I think he is gonna be my blue eyed boy... except his right eye has some big brown spots in it.... kinda unique.

Other things i love right now:
He gets bags under his eyes when he gets tired... thanks to me.
He is just starting to giggle.
He loves to stare at and watch the TV. Oops. I won't be making that a habit.
He prefers the left side... i won't explain any further. Can you say lopsided? :)
There are too many things to name right now, but i think i included most of it. We are having fun at home, but i CANNOT wait for spring! It can't get here fast enough.

Little Precious

Here are the pics that my sister, Noelle, snapped of my little man in his blessing diddy. Isn't he yummy? I think so.

For so long, as other couples would bless their babies in church, I would cry at the sweetness of the father's blessing and how the mom would cuddle the baby afterwards, all the while wishing it was Landon and I having the experience. We finally did, and it was really SO great. I can't wait until I will be able to tell Daxton some day how loved he is by so many people. We had all the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends there to enjoy the special day with us. Thanks to them all for coming and for all the help with food and Daxton! I love the kid, but sometimes it is nice to have him off my hands! I didn't take as many pics as I would have liked, but I caught some pretty cute moments from the weekend. My sister Noelle also took some pictures of Daxton in his little blessing diddy. Thanks Nelli. I will post some of those later when she gets the finals to me. They are precious.
Little Taylor and Daxton... soon to be best buds. They are both such sweet little boys. They look similar don't they? Such cuties.

All the Sherwood cousins posing for pictures: Brock, Claudia, Estelle, Taylor, and Daxton.

Happy 3rd birthday Maddie! We love you so much! Lauren planned such a cute Mickey Mouse themed birthday party for her. They are getting ready to take Maddie to Disneyland for the first time.... after all the Mikey Mouse hype she will be in heaven.

I LOVE this picture of my little guy... just relaxing! This was the day he got his shots and was just so relaxed and mellow all day. Although, about 2 seconds after this picture was taken he spewed across the room. Stinkin shots.

This is one of the only family pictures I have since Daxton was born... and my eyes look all droopy or something. Oh well. Daxton was SO handsome in his little blessing outfit.... however, it was silk and he was as slippery as snot in it. I just love my little family. Landon is the best dad. He is so good to be involved when he come home from a long day at work. We appreciate and love him so much.

Thanks again to all the family an friends who were there with us and helped out so much. We love you!
