It is seriously a crime that I haven't put up a post of my own newborn who is now 6 weeks old, but as we all know...time flies...and it has been flying like crazy over here.
May I now introduce to you...Jaxon!
His stats were 9 lbs and 22 inches. Boy am I glad they induced me!
He is a sweet little guy and he is still gaining weight like a champ. At his last doctor's appt he was almost 12 lbs!
He is a good sleeper and that makes Mommy REALLY happy.
His brother loves to hold him and sing to him. It melts a mommy's heart!
This is my first summer baby (the other two were born in the winter) so I have taken full advantage of getting some outdoor pictures.
He was very cooperative toward the end of his newborn session, but that was only after the marathon of wake time while I was trying to get other sleepy shots. I finally gave up and got the one below with him awake. Turns out...I like it better that way!
His brother and sister are in love with him and so far there are no jealousy issues...whew!
I love the above shot because it is so characteristic of my kids. My son loves to try to make Jaxon laugh. I can't imagine how fun it will be when he finally gets a reaction out of him.
My daughter would much prefer to give him kisses and baby him.
All in all I must say that life as a family of 5 is going well and we are thrilled and blessed to have this little man in our lives. In fact, it is hard to imagine what it was like without him.
