Happy 1st Birthday Daxton!!!!

It has been snowing for almost 12 hours straight so I can't think of anything better to do than catch up on a little blogging.... my favorite!

Can you believe that our little boy is one??? I totally can't! It seems like yesterday... literally. His birthday is at a whirlwind time of year, but we still got in some good celebratin'. I am not going to document every picture, but he had a great Tonka themed party, my mom made an awesome cake, Daxton LOVED and devoured every single morsle of his cupcake, and every gift he was given has been thouroughly enjoyed.... especially the Buzz car. It is so cute to see him walk around everywhere with it!

He is one now and officially weights 20.06 lbs!!!!! So that means a new car seat (thanks to Great Grandma Showell)!!! I think he like it... as much as any child would like a car seat. He just looks so big!

Speaking of looking big and old..... check out this handsome little man! He would absolutely NOT smile for the camera this day, but itsn't it SO cute!

Daxton's little milestones:
-weighs in at a whopping 20 lbs even and 28 inches.... all in about the 10thish percentile. I knew it would start dropping off someday... the kid is doomed to be short and skinny, with a big head.
-He still isn't walking and has expressed ZERO interest. You try and stand him up and he lifts up his legs or drops straight to his bum. Oh well, no rush little buddy.
-he jibber jabbers all day. It sounds like he is telling stories and his eyes get really expressive like we are supposed to understand him.
-He mimics a lot of words, but his favorite word is UH-OH right now. He says it then drops what he is holding, or says it if he hears something drop, everything is uh-oh lately. It is so cute. He slept in our room with us over Christmas and when he would stir during the night he would just say it over and over.... not so cute then. :)
-Weaning from the bottle and formula.... don't ask. He HATES milk. Suggesstions anyone?
This little boy has blessed our lives so much I can't even express it. He is SUCH a happy, busy, mischevious little boy and I wouldn't change a thing about him. We love you Baby Daxton!

11 Months

What a cheezer huh!?? This little boy has our hearts for sure. I can't believe he will turn ONE in like three weeks.... it makes me crazy to think how fast this year has gone and how much we love our little Baby Daxton.

He loves to drive cars... any kind so long as it has wheels. Even better though is he already makes the sound effects..... vroom vroom! Such a boy... and we didn't even teach him. If it has wheels it vrooms.

He LOVES LOVES LOVES to give big, wet, slobbery, open mouth (sometimes tounge) kisses! He gives them to mostly anybody that asks, but him and his little cousin couldn't stop kissing! He loves little Taylor.

Our first Thanksgiving together! Last year at this time I was big and pregnant and couldn't wait to meet my sweet little boy. This year we are grateful to have him, more grateful than I could have ever imagined.

Daxton and Daddy love doing bedtime together. It is sooooo cute to watch. Daxton has quite a little routine down and is really starting to love him blankie that Aunt Kathryn gave to him. He goes to his crib, sticks him little arm through and grabs his binki and blanky and is ready to snuggle with daddy. He mostly just rubs his face around in the blanket... it's so cute.

Other things that he is up to:
-He is the BUSIEST little person I know. He is the little engine that could.
-He is such a good eater and will eat anything... and a lot of it.
-He loved to push things around walking, but has yet to take his first independent step. I don't think it will be long.
-He loves people... ALL people and will go to anybody. He especially loves little kids and giggles non-stop when he sees another baby. He loves to play with his cousins.
-He gabbers ALL DAY. seriously.... never ending. He copies everything we say, well tries anyway. I have a feeling when he really figures out how to talk he is going to have a lot to say. :)
-He used to be the best traveler ever.... now??? Not so much. Sad day, I was starting to think my little boy was perfect in every way.
We love him so much. He is sometimes overwhelmingly busy, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.... ever.
