Twelve Days of Christmas (with the Dannellys)

Jaxon is four months old today!

 A gift to the ladies, indeed! I can think of several ladies in my life who would agree with the print on Jax's shirt :)

It feels like he's been a part of our family forever, and also a bit like he just got here.

We are excited to celebrate our first Christmas as a family of four (...five if you count our dog!), so I rewrote the lyrics to The Twelve Days of Christmas to give you a glimpse into our lives this holiday season:

Twelve Days of Christmas (with the Dannellys)

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true loves gave to me

Twelve dirty diapers

Eleven-minute naps

Ten broken ornaments

Nine missing presents

Eight nursing sessions

Seven mild fevers

Six shirts with spit-up

Five hours of sleep

Four epic meltdowns

Three blank stares

Two runny noses

And one disheveled Christmas tree!

From our (wonderfully wacky) house to yours, Merry Christmas!

Time Flies When You Have Two Kids

Our sweet little dude is already two months old!

He's starting to smile a lot (especially when I use my super-extra-sweet voice) and seems to notice right away when we leave the room. He's growing big and strong and keeps me on my toes when it comes to his "schedule" for nursing and sleeping. 

I can't believe it's already been two months. Austin is both infatuated with him and not ready for him to get so much attention! So we're working it all out as we go. But man, I am so very thankful for these kiddos and the joy they bring our family!
