Happy Easter month!!!!

So I am so excited for easter this month. It is Jaxons first easter!! There are so many cute easter baskets that have so many goodies in them, but I realize that Jaxon would not remember any of it and wouldnt be able to eat half the things that came in the easter basket.
So I am left with easter pictures. In the quest to discover how to use my camera, I decided to attempt to take my own easter pics of Jax, so I didnt have to pay a fortune to get them done.  Well I think they came out pretty darn good!!!!
 So Happy Easter, I hope that everyone has a great easter and hope we remember the menaing of this special day and eat lots of chocolates :)

Besides for all the Easter cheer, California has been beautiful the last week or so, Its been in the high 80's. Jaxon has been growing more and more everyday!, He is crawling all over the place and loves his little walker, so I think he might be walking in a month or two, he seems eager to get movin!!!, We love this little guys so much. We are excited to be going to Virginia beach to start our summer season in a couple of weeks, Taylor has done amazing this preseason and I am so proud of him!!!
I love my little family!!!

A little crafty :)

So the past couple of weeks I have been feeling a little uncreative. We have been moving around so much I havent had a place to decorate, but I have pretty much been feeling like I need to do something to feel a little creative and so here is the result !!:)


And this will eventually be hung on the wall of Jaxons room, when we eventually get a house:(
It was fun to paint, took me about a week and total cost was $18

Proud Mama!!!!

So Jaxon just recently turned 8 months, How times flies. I dont even remember when he was little anymore, He just keeps learning new things and his personality is starting to show and I feel like such a proud mom everytime I look at his cute little face.

This past week has been so much fun, Jaxon has amused me everyday with the cute little things he does that are so adorable,for most of them I did not have a camera on me :(.

Jaxon has full on started crawling and is standing up on everything. He finally figured out how to sit down after he has stood up and sometimes I think thank goodness for diapers else he might have broken something the way he falls on his bottom. He has also started saying da da da da, I dont think he knows what he is saying but it is cute anyways. Last sunday when we were singing the opening hym he starting singing with us and also in He has also developed a little attitide, I think he knows he has his mommy wrapped around his little finger...
He currently is 27 in long and weighs 19 lbs. He has the cutest little baby legs, I love just squishing them.

                                          Jaxon loves sucking on the end of bottles, so I gave him an empty bottle of
                                    DiVisol, it has a soft lid, so he loves it, He was so funny this week because he
                                 was crawling around everywhere with it hanging out of his mouth.

  We took Jaxon to the beach last week and he ate his first handful of sand, it obviously tasted ok to him, because he went back for seconds and thirds... we stopped him after that. it was too cute though.

Bargain Buys

So I have you ever been so impressed with yourself when you find bargains, and for a week you can't believe how much you bought for super cheap. Well this past week this is how i felt and i just had to share!!!
So Taylor and I were driving around in California this past monday and I found a store called the Childrens Orchard in San Miguel, California. I love buying clothes for Jaxon and i found some really good things for only $12.
I found a church shirt, 2 pairs of shorts, a swim top and the cutest little swim short and a cute book.
Then on Tuesday I was online and came across a website for the OC Kids Consignment sale, that was on friday in Huntington Beach. I left friday morning at 7 am and got to the store to wait in line to get all the good stuff. At the end of 2 hours I was once again impressed with all the things I bought for only $52.
On this day I bought a walker, a playground, Elmo, a beach hat, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of shoes, a book, a little diner, and a dvd for baby sign language.
I felt like I got really good deals, so would encourage all moms to look for consignment sales, I had so much fun!!!!
