Just a quick update...

When on my first trip to the mall in Lexington last the weekend before last.  Mommy says its an hour drive but i slept the whole way there so i didn't mind.  I was really amazed at all the silly looking people we seen there.  Daddy pushed me around in my stroller and i tried to talk to everyone and everything.  If we walked off mommy could always find us cause she could here me talkin a mile away! :-)  I think i got the most out of the trip too.  Daddy got me a UK basket ball for my room.  That thing is bigger than me!! Ha!  Also got me some new kicks like papaw's. (shoes)

We also went to the Carter store and mommy picked me out a bunch of new outfits.  And... that's where i found my new best friend!  My lil' Monkey!  He's just my size and i loved him as soon as mommy picked him up and gave him to me.  He sleeps with me every night and loves watchin tv with me.  On Sundays we watch football together and i lay there and scratch his head for him.  He talks to me too... i know it's really mommy talkin for him but i still get a good laugh out of it.  Me, mommy & monkey make monkey faces together!
 This weekend me, mommy and daddy went shopping for toys for mommy's works Christmas party.  I LOVED seeing all those toys!  I rode in mommy's cart so we stopped and played with most of the toys as we went.  That is until i fell asleep.  Now mommy has to wrap them all.  She should be a pretty good wrapper by the time she gets done... just in time to wrap all MY Christmas presents!! :-)  Daddy is gonna spoil me rotten... Mommy says i already am cause she buys me everything i want! And she says I AM everything SHE wants!!   I can tell she loves me SO SO much!!  I even say momma now.  As for daddy... I light up when i see him.  Every night when me and mommy get home she takes me in to see him and i give him the biggest smile.  I get so happy to see him.  Oh and for everyone else, if i want your attention and you're not paying attention to me i yell "Hey!"   I'm full of myself but everyone loves me!
Things are pretty good at daycare but i've started getting a little jealous, so they say.  That lady told mommy that i was in my boucy happy as can be and then she picked up another baby to hold and i seen them and screamed out bloody murder.  I don't want them holding anyone but me! :-) Mommy says we have to take turns and i have to play nice though.  :-( 
I get to celebrate my first "turkey day" this week.  I'm sure daddy will let me lick a taste of everything.  I like trying new things.  I can't really eat any of them but i sure like to lick them and taste them.  Mommy says i make some pretty funny faces sometimes. 

Okay i better get to bed. 

To be continued...

3 Months Old!

My oh my i'm 3 months old already!  Mommy says it's been the best 3 months of her life and guess what?... Mine Too! Ha!  She wouldn't trade it for ANYTHING!  Well as you've noticed it's been a little while since my last blog but that's cause i have much better things to do anymore, like playing with mommy and daddy! :-) I stay awake a lot more now and i love talkin and gigglin with them.  And they love it too! I'm even starting to find my deep inner laugh.  Mommy can't wait til i let it out!
I made it through my first Halloween the other week.  I was "Yoda" and my cousin Keyona was "Princess Leia".  (I was actually her 1st Halloween too.)  Everyone thought we were sooooo cute! Said i was the cutest Yoda they'd ever seen many times.  Well of course! :-)  Mammaw & Papa Downey came down that weekend and went Trick-or-Treating with us all.  Me and Keyona rode in the stroller so it wasn't bad for us. (No hills for us! Hehe) Everyone else got a good workout though.  Afterwards we all celebrated Keyona's 1st b-day.  She had her own little cake and man did she go to town on it.  She had cake ALL over my poor high chair.  But now mommy knows that for my b-day to put a towel down first. She says she's just gonna put me out in the yard and then hose me off! Hey that could be fun...

Mammaw & Papa came and got me from mommy's work that day when they got to town since mommy & daddy had to work for a few more hours still.  But them silly people ended up going in circles and got lost and i wasn't too happy about it.  It was time for me to eat and they were taken forever!  We finally made it home though and i got to eat so then i was a happy camper.  I gave papa the first smile... he acts like my daddy and i miss my daddy during the day so he was a good fill in. :-) I gave mammaw plenty smiles the rest of the weekend though.  Even though she tried to give me a mohawk before she left.
Sunday of course is football day around here and i love it! Mommy laid me on my mat in the living room and turned football on and i was happy for hours.  I was talkin up a storm tryin to tell them players what to do. I must get that from my daddy.  I really loved it when the crowd cheered "ME" on.  I would giggle and laugh everytime.  I was really enjoying myself and mommy seemed to really enjoy me being so happy.  She was laughin right with me. (or at me... not really sure) Sat. daddy went and helped aunt Kim finish puttin up her underpinning, whatever that is and then they decided to fix her kitchen floor so me and mommy went over there to join them.  All my cousins had gone to daycare that day so their mommy could get that done before winter comes.  I was trying to tell them how to do the floor but they would just laugh at me.  I didn't mind though, cause when they laugh i laugh even more.  My daddy is such a good man.  Me and mommy are sure lucky to have him and love him soooo soooo much!
Okay let's see, what else?  Oh ya, mommy fixed me my first bowl of rice cereal tonight and I loved it! She didn't make to much but i ate the whole bowl.  It was yummy to my tummy.  My sleep has been off lately (mommy says its cause of the time change, i thought time changed all day every day but whatever she says) anyways, she thinks the cereal may help me sleep better and not wake up all during the night like i have been for the last week.  We'll see. And I am holding my head up really good now and i love to sit up.  I do pretty good with high back support unless i'm sleeping.  I'd rather sit up now too cause i can't see it but mommy says i'm starting to get a bald spot in the back.  I don't want that, i'm way to young to go bald!  My hair is thinning out but i've still got a headfull and i'm still mommy's handsome little man! 
I like to cuddle with things now too.  Just whatever i can get my hands on i pull up by my face and don't let go.  It helps me sleep and mommy thinks its cute! :-)   She's loves to cuddle with ME!  It's time to go shopping agian... i'm out growing all my clothes.  My 0-3 sleepers... you can forget them, i moved up to 3-6 months awhile ago.  Some things are now big on me a little still but the lengh is just right.  Daddy bought me some camoflage boots the other week and i look like such a big boy in them.  Mommy says i'm growing way to fast on her.

Well, it's way past my bed time so i'm gonna call it a night.  Thanks for checkin up on me. 

Sleep tight!

My first visit "TO" the hospital

As you noticed in my last blog i had caught a "bug".  Well that mean bug just wouldn't leave me alone day after day so finally mommy was getting really worried that i might get dehydrated so she called the doc.  Doc. took to long to return mommys call so she decided to go ahead and take me up to the ER.  Did you know that it's a sign of dehydration when a babies "soft spot" sinks in? Well now you do! Mommy read that on the internet and thats why she decided to take me up to the hospital.  Good thing she did cause i was dehydrated.  When Dr. in the ER first looked me over he said i wasn't but wanted some blood work to make sure.  So then these 2 mean ladies came in there and stabbed me in my little arm tryin to get an IV set for if they needed it and to draw some blood.  Well they messed it up so my blood came out to slow and cloted so it was no good.  And they hurt my arm for no reason!  I was already really mad and then they decided to stab my little foot and get blood from there.  They squeezed and squeezed until they finally got enough.  And i had definately had enough.  When they finished mommy scooped me up and i gave her the sadess little face.  I already didn't feel good and they were making me hurt in more places. 

Me and mommy waited and waited and then 2 more nurses came in and said they were going to hook up an IV.  The doc. never came and talked to us about the results but the nurses said that they had called MY doc and he wanted me to be admitted because my count was low and i was dehydrated.  This time they tried to put the IV in my other arm and by the time they were done (which they did succed) me and mommy were both in tears.  She hated seeing me in pain like that.  She said it broke her heart watching.  This time i was really glad when mommy scooped me up off the bed and kissed and hugged me.  I just wanted to go home.  Since we had my seat, diaper bag, mommy's purse and i was not letting her put me down again another nurse just loaded everything up on the bed and wheeled us up to our room.  She first brought a wheelchair but quickly realized that that wasn't going to work.

Shortly after we got settle Aunt Kim showed up to bring mommy some food since she hadn't eatin all day and daddy showed up too.  He had a busy day at work but still managed to make it up there to be with me.  Mommy stayed up there with me the whole time and i made her hold me and cuddle with me most of the time.  I had finally fell into a good sleep so she layed me in my bed and good thing she did cause it wasn't long after that that i exploded again!  Mommy buzzed the nurse and between everyone i got cleaned up and my bed too.  My poor little tummy just was not agreeing with me.  Little later the night nurse came in to take my temp and was tellin mommy that the little 3mth old girl in the next room and just shot out all over him face and all when he tried to take her temp.  (ya know since they like to take it from our bottoms...)  And about that time... there i went!  I did it to him too! (just not in the face, i think he learned not to get to close!) Poor guy, mommy felt bad for him but couldn't help but laugh at the same time.  He was good spirited though so he wasn't mad at me.  He tried to talk to me everytime he came in to my my vitals but i wanted nothing to do with him.  I just wanted mommy to love on me and keep all those mean people with their needles away.  They stabbed my other foot that night for blood and then the next morning they went back to the other.  AND then they went back to the other again and some lab guy had to come back and redo it AGAIN so they went back to the other.  My poor little feet weren't gonna take much more of that.  My doc. had made a trip up and talked to mommy a little that night and then again the next day.  Said if my count was better than i could go home cause Sat. i was able to drink a little and hadn't had any more "leakage" except during the early morning hours.

When they finally got the results back they told us that the normal count is 20 and Fri. when i came in mine was only 13.  The last set of test late Sat. afternoon my count was up to 18 so they said i could go home. Yay!  Havin' that IV of fluids all night and day helped.  And me and mommy were both worn out and ready to go home. 

I did pretty good once we got home but later that night i was in my swing and me, mommy and daddy were watching a movie when all of a sudden... i exploded everywhere again.  Mommy and daddy both just looked at each other, i guess trying to decide who was gonna clean me up.  Well, it took BOTH of them!  And mommy had just givin me a bath and had me smellin sooo good too! 

Well, i'm doin better now, just still tryin to build my appetite back up.  Rested a lot Sun. and then mommy went back to work today and i went back to daycare.  They were all glad to see me this morning.  Hopefully soon i'm be 100% and back to myself.  Until then i just get lots of extra lovin from mommy.  Oh and daddy says i better get better soon cause i get to go trick-or-treating this weekend AND mama & papa are coming to visit!  I think daddy just wants my candy though.  Ha!  Oh yea, AND we are having a b-day party for my cousin Keyona.  She's going to be 1! 

Okay, well there are all the juicy (and i mean "juicy") details of my "bug" trouble.  Now i'm gonna go cuddle up w/ mommy and get some zzzzz's. 

Nighty, Night!

Okay so they say i've caught a "bug"... but how did it get in my tummy and why wont it come out?  My poor little bottom has been put through enough.  I haven't been myself since Tues. and i don't like it.  Stuff is coming out of both ends and me nor mommy are very happy about it.  Mommy says i've made the whole house smell like a sewage plant!  I didn't even feel like eating much today.  Probably only ate about 7 or 8oz since 7am this morning. (in which all that i had then came back up)  Mommy went and got me some stuff to help keep me from getting dehydrated and it's actually pretty good stuff.  I just wish it would make me better already.  Mommy has had to stay home with me for 2 days now cause i'm not allowed to go to daycare if my bottom is "leakin".  She says today was worse than yesterday.  Good thing she bought some more diapers yesterday... she's needed them!  We hope I'm better by morning cause if not mommy is going to take me back to the doctor.  Yesterday we had an appointment already so she talked to the dr. about whats going on since it started tues., but of course you can't find many "American" doctors anymore so she didn't get much out of him (that she understood anyways).  He just said if more diarehhea then give some pedialyte, but if not than don't.  Well duh!  On a good note though, i am growing... longer that is.  I'm not a whole 2feet long. (24in")  And he said i weigh 9.75lbs.   I was really needy yesterday and today and wanted mommy to hold me most of the day.  So yesterday she decided to read me a story.  It was something about "red fish" and "blue fish".  That cat in that hat is so silly.  I even giggled out loud a few times as mommy was ready it.  Mommy thinks i was just laughin at her though cause she was being silly while reading it.  Either way though, i enjoyed it.  Thanks again Aunt Britney for the books.  Since i can focus a little now she plans to start reading to me a lot more.  Gonna have to get me some more books! =)

Tuesday was my daddy's 35th birthday! Good thing we celebrated it with friends Sat. cause Tues. night i just wasn't up for it.  Mommy says he had a toddler party cause all the kids that were here but he had a good time and that's all that matters.  I think he is really glad that this birthday he finally got to spend as a "daddy".  He even let me try the icing off his cake.  As you can see in my pictures on my website. ( http://www.jaxondowney.com/ ) Mommy got him a UK cake but i guess he got excited and he cut it before mommy could take a picture. 

Sunday Grandma Feller and Danny came to visit me.  We hung out here at home together.  I even gave them a few grins & giggles.  Grandma got me a new toy to hang on my seat!  It rattles REALLY easy... mommy can hear it if the wind blows.. lol  I like when they come to visit... they bring me TOYS!!  :-)

Mommy did get out my mat thingy the other day, ya know with the toys that hang on a bar over you.  One of the animals on it i can reach and everytime i made it move it would jingle.  And I like!  I wanted the rest to move and make noise too so i would scoot down and wrap my arm around the side of the bar thingy and then pull my arm back towards me and whatda ya know... the whole bar would move and make all the things jingle and rattle. HeHe!!  I'm one smart little dude... i know how to make it work! That night while mommy cooked dinner daddy got down there on the floor and played with it with me.  I love my daddy, he's so silly.  I reconize his voice now and when i hear it i look all around until i see him.  Even though i'm not feelin so great i still managed to let out a little grin for him tonight.

Okay i've been all over the place in this blog so i think i'm gonna call it a night. Me and mommy need some sleep.  We are both worn out.

Sleep tight!

Jax's rough day...

Well i was stabbed today... yep some mean old lady stabbed me 3 whole times in my little legs.  The first one was bad enough and i screamed but settled down and then the second was worse and by the third one... i was MAD!  If they wouldn't of been holding me down i would've scooted right off that table tryin to get away.  I squeezed mommy's had so hard i'm surprised i didn't break her finger.  When it was all done mommy picked me up and loved on me which made me feel a little better.  But just a little.  Mommy don't think that nurse knows what she's talking about cause she thinks i look little... when she put me on the scale though she realized i'm not so little after all.  I weigh a whole 10lbs. now and i've grown another 1/2in making me 23.25in long.  So i'm just right, as mommy would say.

After the doctor we hurried home cause it was past time for me to eat.  We waited a little while for daddy to get home but he never showed so we left and went to good ol wal-mart.  Mommy wanted to get me some pain medicine and she bought me a new toy too! =)  I was getting mad while she was looking at things and then she started playin with this toy and i giggle and loved it.  So yep, i got it!  Its to hang on my car seat so i have something to play with in the car.   Oh and she bought me another little jacket and some more pants and socks.  My socks don't like to stay on so she got me some that come up my leg a little more, and she thinks i wont kick these off... Ha!  My legs get plenty of exercise... all night i pull them up in the air over and over again until i get my cover off and then put my legs on top of it.  And of course mommy pulls it back out and covers me back up.  This is another game i like to play at night.  Not really sure why i play the games i do but i do it anyways.  I've also started kickin' my legs all over whenever i throw a "mad fit". (as daddy would say)  I go ALL OUT!  And of course i ALWAYS get my way!!  =)  It's easy to get your way when you are this handsome!  HeHe! 

Anyways, after we got home i was no longer happy.  My poor little legs were hurting and silly mommy got the wrong medicine.  She picked up the childrens one but not the one with the dropper thingy in it.  So i screamed and screamed and screamed, well you get the picture.  Finally i ate most of my bottle and went to sleep next to daddy.   Hopefully i will be good as new in the morning. 

Last night mommy had to work a little late again so i got to spend some more time with just daddy.  I was a little cranky though but once mommy got home and played with me i was good to go.  Mommy was playing with my little toesy's and i thought she was silly.  She loves playin and talkin to me.  Daddy does too!  Daddy sits down and talks to me every morning before he leaves for work.  I let out a few smiles and then he kisses me and he's on his way.  Mommy comes behind him and does the same thing and gets me and her ready to go and then we're off.  I love the drive in the mornings, i just sit back and look around and take it all in.  Sometimes i fall asleep before we make it to daycare but usually i'm wide awake.   And i'm always glad to mommy when she picks me up.  She loves on me and tells me how much she missed me.  I'm her little buddy!

Well i better get to bed... got a full day ahead of me tomorrow.  Ya know all that sleepin, eatin, swingin and layin' around lookin at things.  That can wear a little dude out! Ha!! 

Sloppy Kisses & Hugs!

Love, Baby Jax

"2 Months old"

I'm a whole 2 months old today and mommy says i'm growin like a weed!  I'm much happier now a days, but i guess that comes with age! Ha!  Been a busy busy week.  Mommy went back to work so that means i had to start going to this place where everyone drops their kids off and then shows back up later to get them.  They call it daycare.  Hmmm wonder why...  My first day there daddy had to pick me up since it was a late night for mommy.  She didn't get home until 9:30 (yeah i can tell time) so i got to spend lots of time with just daddy.  I decided i'd be a good boy for him this time.  So in return he fed me, changed my diaper and got me dressed for bed and all cozy.  We cuddled up watchin monday night football until mommy got home.  Tues. mommy had another late night but not as late so daddy picked me up again and we hung out together.  He's so funny!  I grin and giggle when he talks to me.  I love our one-on-one time and mommy says we get to do that at least one night every two weeks when she has to work late.  Yay!  Mommy says she really missed me this week and was so happy to see me everynight.  I missed her too!  Come Wed. (yeah i know my days of the week too!) i just stared her down as she left me there at daycare cause i didn't want her to go.  =(  They seem pretty nice there though and take good care of me while mommy works.  I'm mommy's new alarm clock too!  I usually wake her up before her alarm goes off and she "snoozes" me by givin me back my paci. :)  We play this game every morning for a bit and then her real alarm goes off and she snoozes it to.  Whenever she starts putting me in my own bed then she'll actually have to get up to give me my paci so it may be a different story then.  Mommy's not a morning person like me and daddy.  But she does whatever it takes to make me happy! <3  Daddy's really comin' around too.  Mommy & daddy both seem SO happy to have me here.  Mommy had never heard daddy talk so much baby talk until now. (besides him talkin to the cats)  She says while she's getting ready in the mornings she hears me in here giggling with daddy and just loves the sound of it.  I always give them both a few good grins at the least in the morning.

Last night my cousins Lacey & Lydia stayed over with me.  Lydia loves to talk to me and Lacey begged my mommy the whole time if she could hold me.  She let her a couple times and i sure didn't mind.  As long as i don't get dropped or thrown around than I'm good! :)  Mommy is pretty protective of me... Lacey also helped to give me a bath this morning but she was to slow, i like for mommy to keep squeezin water out on me to keep me warm so she had to take over.  Lacey is a good helper though.  Then today my other cousins (Kasidy & Keyona) also came over and Kasidy loves takin care of me ('Aby 'Axon as she says) If i spit out my paci she comes runnin sayin' "ot oh" and gives it back to me.  What can i say... "Everybody Loves Me!!" =)~ 

Earlier today i had my own photo shoot, by mommy of course.  She loves taken pictures and especially ones of me!  I gave her a few good ones but then i was done.  She said shes gonna post them on my website: http://www.jaxondowney.com/ when she gets a chance.  And they are already on facebook for those of you on there.

Oh yeah, last night all 7 of us (including Bubba & Cotton) cuddled up and watched Karate Kid. One by one everyone fell asleep.  First Lydia so daddy took her and put her in bed, then Lacey, so there she went and so on.  I guess actually i was first but I slept in mommy's arms the whole time so i didn't get booted out. lol  

Well i gotta get some sleep now.  Tomorrow is football day with daddy and i told him i'd be in a good mood so i better get my rest.  Cause when i ain't happy, nobody's happy! ;)

Sweet Dreams!

Love, Baby Jax <3

Life at 7 weeks

Let's see... last week Grandma Feller, Danny, Aunt Kathy & my cousin Rachel came to visit me.  We went out for pizza and then Kathy and Rachel went swimming at the hotel.  Since i don't even know how to sit up my self yet i wasn't allowed to go swimming.  I just had to watch.  So the next day before they left i thought i'd get Aunt Kathy back for teasing me by spitting up ALL over her! HeHe!  I bet she smelled that nasty formula all the home.  Just kidding, i didn't mean to.  ;)  We had a good time though.

Well i've started staying awake a little more during the day.  Things catch my eye and i just start starring.  Not sure what i stare at and neither does mommy.  She thinks i'm crazy.  I try to talk to her but she just dont understand what i'm saying and just goos back at me.  She does this to my cousin Kasidy to and it makes Kasidy really mad.  Kasidy tells her to "STOP" so i guess she understands that mommy is making fun of her.  Me? I don't mind, i just do it more.  Mommy seems to love it when i goo and ahh at her.  :) 

Does anyone else have someone stop them in the middle of eating and start patting them on the back?  Mommy always does this to me so now when she's patting my back i pat hers too cause i never see daddy pat it for her when she eats.  It always seems to make me burp though and makes me feel so much better. 

Speaking of mommy thinkin i'm crazy... when i get ahold of something, usually mommys finger, i like to squeeze really tight and she thinks i have a strong grip... well last night i some how managed to grab my OWN hair and of course i squeezed it tight and ya remember i have "crazy arms" well i moved my arm which made me pull my hair, which made me REALLY mad so i tried to pull my arm away but only made me pull my hair even harder which made me even more mad so i did it again over and over again.   Needless to say i didn't realized i was hurting myself (thought someone else was) and mommy was laughin so hard while tryin to loosen up my grip.  I didn't think it was to funny but she thought it was hilarious.  But she finally got me to let go and then she covered me in kisses to make me feel better. (while she was still laughing i might add...) 

The last two days my cousin Lydia has come home with daddy and she likes to talk to me and she even plays the "paci game" with me. (although she gives up on it real quick, mommy hears her saying... "close your mouth Jaxon, it's already in there.")  You can tell she's been around a lot of babies... she's got that sweet baby talk down pat.  Sun. me and mommy went over to their house so mommy could work on Aunt Kim's computer and Lydia and Kasidy were fighting over me!  Kasidy wants to take care of me all by herself.  Kasidy likes givin me my paci when i fling it out but don't like for me to wear mittens.   Oh and Kasidy ALWAYS thinks i stink.  She walks around saying "Axon Stinks!"  Maybe cause the first time i met her i started poopin on her mommy when she tried to change my diaper. Who knows!  But really she's the one that stinks... when we were leavin' she messed her pull-up and decided to pull it down around her ankles and come walking in the living room sayin' "I stink".  She had it everywhere... poor Aunt Kim. 

The last few nights i have driven mommy and daddy crazy!  She wasted $45 on some drops for me that don't help any.  I was just so cranky and NOTHING made me happy.  Not sure why i get so cranky but maybe it'll get better soon.  Tonight was better though so who knows.  Tonight mommy gave me a bath and i loved it! It makes me smell sooo good and as my hair dries it slowly spikes up and makes me look soo handsome!  (So mommy says) She even filed my nails today.  I scratched my face so they needed it.  I wasn't being very still so she was scared to clip them so she just filed them down smooth instead.  Then i cuddled with daddy while mommy took a shower and started my laundary.  Daddy had been sick but i'm so glad he is better now so i can cuddle with him again.  Don't think Cotton is to happy about it though.  I still don't think that hairy little guy has gotten used to me yet.  He prob. just knows from my cousins that little people like me always grow bigger and like to chase and tease lil guys like him.  Ha! Look out Cotts!

Oh yea, thanks Aunt Tracy for the halloween card.  Daddy put my dollar in my piggy bank.  If i had teeth i would've gone and got me some candy or something but i don't. HeHe! 

Okie dokie... it's nighty night time!

Sweet Dreams, don't let the bed bugs bite!

Love, Baby Jax!

P.S. Don't forget to visit my website every now and then... mommy is going to be posting new pictures soon!  ( http://www.jaxondowney.com/) And sign up to follow my blog so you don't miss anything!

6 Weeks!

Happy Birthday to ME! Yep, i'm 6 weeks old today.  Getting older and older every week! =)  My day started bright and early with a trip to the doctor's office.  Mommy didn't want to get up but we made it in time.  She's gonna have to get use to gettin us both up and ready before to long when she goes back to work.  Which i would rather her just quit her job and stay home with me everyday and i know she would too but she wont...  We actually went to where i'll be going to daycare today and turned in all my paperwork and met the people who will be watching and playing with me during the day while mommy works.  Me and mommy both like them and think i'll be in good hands there. 

Okay, back to the doctor visit... he said i'm lookin good! Which i knew this already cause people tell me this ALL the time.  I've gained a little weight, not much but now i'm at 8lbs 14.5oz and i'm stretching out too... i'm now 22.75in. long.  Mommy knew i was growing cause i'm out growing my clothes.  My little toeseys are at the ends of my sleepers.  I'm gonna have to move to the next size soon just for the lenght. Which means they will be really baggy on me.  But we'll figure it out.  Mommy will make sure i'm nice and comfy and cozy!  Oh and as far as my rash on my face... Doc. says i got some of that ezama stuff.  =(  It could clear up and stay away or it may come back here and there.  I sure hope not cause it makes my poor face itch.  He gave me some cream for mommy to put on it and it makes it feel better.  She hopes it clears up fast.

So over all life is good at 6 weeks.  Sat.  while daddy mowed the yard mommy took me for another walk.  But this time we didn't leave the driveway! lol  We got a pretty long driveway and i like the bumpiness of it better than the road anyways so we just made several circles back and forth while we glanced at daddy everytime he went by. We love him!  That is until i fell asleep.  The bumps and mower noise put me out... but as soon as we stopped and it got quiet i was wide awake again.  Mommy thinks i'm so backwards! Ha!   Just like if i fall asleep with the lights on... as soon as they go off UP I AM! 

Today i went up to mommys work again to see everyone.  I think Amy could hold me all day and not put me down for nothing.  And i wouldn't mind one bit.  I get so cozy.  Her and mommy both think i would be a good associate to hang with them everyday if only they could figure out a way to sneak me in. HeHe!  I told em i was small enough to hide in the corner! =)  Well i better get me some sleep cause Danny, Grandma Feller and maybe Aunt Kathy and cousin Rachel are comin to town tomorrow to see me.   Just hopefully i don't spit up all over them like i did on mommy again tonight. =(  That would be kinda funny though...

Nighty Nite! Sweet Dreams!

Just another day...

Lets see... what have i been up to?  Well yesterday me and mommy ran to get some ink so she can print out some more pictures of guess who...? Yep, ME! My frames in my room have some babys pic. in them that i don't know.  Mommy is already behind cause my 1st year frame needs my birth pic and my one month pic. already.  She thinks there is a big difference in that time and it will be neat to watch me change over the first year.  Then daddy got home and had my cousin Lacey with him.  Her and mommy cooked spaghetti while i took a little nap.  I always know when it is time for mommy and daddy to eat... i wake up and get really cranky.  Mommy spends all that time cookin and then ends up eating cold food.  I'm just jealous that i don't get to eat it yet.  And it don't matter what it is... the night before it was meatloaf and before that it was steaks on the grill.  I can't wait to eat the good stuff! 

I always end up really cranky in the evenings and not much makes me happy.  I'm most happy when mommy holds me but sometimes thats still not enough.  Daddy thinks mommy has just spoiled me rotten but tonight when i got that way she looked up some stuff on this silly internet about fussy babies (guess that would be me...) and it says that it usually happens in the evenings before our long strech of sleep. (long strech...i don't do to many long streches) Anyways, it says that it's normal and it peeks at around 6 weeks, which is how old i'll be on mon. and slacks off around 3-4 months.  Mommy was happy to hear that its normal but not so happy that it's gonna last another 2-3 months.  Good thing she don't mind holding and rockin me cause it looks like thats gonna be her main job for awhile.  Daddy bless his heart trys really hard but sometimes it just don't cut it and i prefer mommy.  Mommy says he's just not used to little babies as little as me but give him time and he will get the hang of it.  And some how i always know when mommy leaves the room.  I'm out like a light and if she walks away I'm bright eye'd and mad.  

I still love playing the paci game ALL DAY AND NIGHT!  Today mommy was trying to teach me to suck on my thumb so if i lose my paci i could just use my thumb instead of getting so mad but i told her no way.  I'd much rather have my paci.  And i'm getting more of an arm on me cause i'm strating to fling it farther and farther.  Not such a good thing for mommy. 

Speaking of arms... mommy says she's gonna have some good arm muscles by the time i move into a big carseat from luggin me around.  And just think i only way about 10lbs now... i'm gonna get bigger. 

Oh and i think this new formula may be helping on my spitting up.  Still to soon to tell.  I did spit up all over daddy last night though.  He wasn't to happy about it.  I wasn't either though.  Time will tell.

I go to the doctor mon. but i'm not lookin forward to it cause i think they plan to stab me with some needles... mommy wishes they didn't have to either.  We will prob. both tear up! Ha!  Mommy did have to call the doc yesterday cause my poor little face has broken out and she wasn't sure what it was from.  They say it could be a variety of different things.  It may be from my formula or she thinks it may be where she'd been layin' me on a towel cause i was spitting up my whole bottle so much and it may be a reaction to her detergant.  Now she just uses my blankets to lay me on which are only washed in my very own special detergant.  Who knows... And the doc. told her what to put on my face to see if it heals it up.  If not they will look at it mon. when we are there.  Mommy thinks it looks better today though so it seems to be getting better.  It didn't really bother me none but mommy didn't like thinkin her babys face might be iching or hurting.  I can always count on mommy to take care of me.  She loves me so much!  When i do sleep, sometimes i dream and let out a few smiles and mommy thinks i must be dreamin about her and daddy... but i'll never tell!   And mommy says that no matter how long of a day it's been, when she looks at my sweet little face everything else just melts aways.  Besides daddy, i'm the love of her life!

Well i'm off to baby dream land!  It's almost time to start tonights paci game! (sure mommy is soo looking forward to it)

Sweet Dreams!

5 Weeks!

I turned 5 weeks old today... i'm getting old! Ha!  Had a long day today, just didn't feel like napping ANY so mommy had her hands full today.  Not sure why i was so cranky today but hey it happens.  However mommy is learning to multitask pretty quickly.  Today she swept and mopped and dusted with one hand... what? I only weigh about 10lbs. so whats the big deal if she had to hold me in the other while she tried to get things done... I'm helping her to build up some good arm musle! :-)   After all that hard work she didn't seem to thrilled when daddy came home and didn't take his shoes off at the door... we have a gravel driveway still so he left rock dust foot prints all through the house.  Bad daddy!  Mommy is also learning to multitask while driving too.  See i like to play this game where i swing my arms all crazy and knock my paci out and then i get really mad until someone gives it back to me.  Well mommy sometimes has to drive with one arm in the back seat.  She has this little mirror back there pointed on me so she can see me through her mirror so she uses that to give me back my paci... although she still needs a little practice cause she trys to put it in my eyes and nose sometimes but she tries her hardest to keep me happy.  I like playing the paci game ALL the time but i don't think mommy and daddy do.  It really makes me mad if they don't get it for me right away so i'm not sure why i keep flinging it out but my arms just go crazy sometimes.  But no matter how cranky i get or how crazy my arms get mommy still always tells me how much she loves me.  I just give her my sweet little innocent look with my big blue eyes and she melts! 

Well for my birthday last thurs. (my 1 month b-day that is) me and mommy got out and did some running around.  First we went and opened me a savings account for college.  Yeah i wont be needing that for many years so i should have plenty by then.  And thanks Aunt Tracy for the head start on it.  Oh and Daddys work got me a savings bond too.  That was nice of them.  I was a big hit at the bank.  All the ladies there kept coming over and lookin at me and saying how cute i was. And they thought my b-day was pretty cool! I just laid there suckin away at my paci.  That's what i do best!  After we finished there we went and had some lunch. Once again i only got this stinky formula.  Oh joy!  And then... mommy took me to get my pictures taken.  Mommy preferrs to just do it herself with her fancy little camera but she thought she take me for kicks and giggles.  I gave em a few good shots but was ready to get back home after that.  We had a good day out though!

Friday we went and had lunch with aunt Kim and my cousins Kasidy and Keyona.  In the car Kasidy kept taking my paci away and i didn't like that (i'm suppose to fling it and then someone give it back!) and for some reason she wanted to keep taking my socks off... she's so silly.  I can't wait until i'm big enough to play with them... I'll get her back then! Ha!

Yesterday me and mommy went grocery shopping so daddy could watch his football.  And i decided to throw my first temper tantrum in wal-mart!  Mommy wasn't to happy about it so we stopped with what we had and went home.  Ended up going back later to finish.  I usually like riding in the cart but i didn't yesterday.  Than last night mommy took me for a walk around the neighborhood.  I wasn't in the mood for it though... and i think i woke up all the neighbors dogs with my farting! lol  I had gas really bad and mommy says sometimes she can't tell if it's me or daddy. Ha!  Oh and i liked the bumpy driveway part of the ride the best. 

Well it's way past my bedtime so me and mommy are heading to bed since neither of us got much sleep last night. (courtesy of me)  I think she might try to wrap me up and with arms in the blanket so i can get crazy arms tonight...

Sleep tight!

Love, Baby Jax!

4 weeks, 1 day

Today has been a good day.  Started off by sleeping ALL night until 8am this morning.  I must of been worn out cause i never sleep all night.  =)  Mommy gave me a bath this morning and i just love it when she washes my hair! It feels so good, i just lay there and grin and enjoy it.  I just hate it when bathtime is over and she picks me up out of that warm water.  I get really mad when that cold air hits me.  So far i've only pee'd on her once during bathtime.  Mommy has learned to get my diaper on me right away. Ha!

Me and mommy were both finally ready to leave the house by noon.  She tells me that it takes a lot longer to get ready nowadays since she has to get me ready also.  She don't seem to mind though.  We went up to mommy's work and had lunch with Amy.  I like Amy, she loves to hold me and talk to me.  I even gave her a few smiles today too!  They got to eat pizza but i had to eat this stinky formula.  They were suppose to move mommy's office today but now they've changed it again to Friday so we'll be going back up there then.  And i'm sure i'll be passed around to all the ladies up there while mommy works.  I don't mind though, i love all the attention.

Tonight i hung out with Daddy a little while Mommy ran to the store.  I decided i'd be good for him this time. =)  I just hope in a little while when i eat again i can keep it down.  My lil tummy has been fine all day but last night it didn't agree with me that i was hungry.  I spit up my whole bottle all over mommy and her bedroom floor.  Now her room smells like nasty formula.  Sorry momma, i can't help it.  I hate it when i spit up like that cause it comes out my nose and everything.  Hopefully i'm just still adjusting to this new formula and it will get better.

Yesterday i was 4 weeks old already and i'm just lovin my life.  My mommy and daddy love me SOOO much and they say they couldn't ask for anything better than ME!  They've had to make some adjustments since my arrival but they are doing pretty good with the whole thing.  Mommy comes running everytime i cry, i got her under my spell! HA! I wear the pants of the house now!  (well diapers...)  Mommy says she wants to just stay home with me ALL the time and not go back to work... I would really like that but she's gotta go make me some money cause they are gonna spoil me rotten. 

Enough for tonight, gotta go cuddle up with daddy and watch some biker show... i think thats where they got my name.

Love, Baby Jax

Labor Day Weekend

Been a busy weekend.  Mama & Papa Downey missed me so much that they came to see me this weekend. To bad they already had to leave.  I love it when mama holds me and talks to me!  Hope she knows i didn't mean to spit up all over her this morning.  Sorry mama!  Mommy switched me to a new formula this afternoon and so far it seems to be helping.  Maybe now i can keep this stuff down. 

Yesterday 4 of my cousins and my Aunt Kim came over and we celebrated my cousin Lydia's birthday.  She turns 5 tomorrow.  And i'll be 4 weeks already tomorrow.  Mommy says i'm growing up way to fast!  My cousin Keyona wasn't sure what to think about me.  I didn't really pay her any attention but she wanted to keep crawling over and pushing on me.  (She's only 10 months old)  I think she was trying to play with me but i can't really do much yet besides lie there and look around.  I love looking around at things. And I love when people talk to me.  My mommy talks to me all the time and i just look at her like i'm really listening.  She thinks i am but i'll never tell! ;)

Glad my daddy gets to stay home from work again tomorrow.  I love cuddling with him.  Cotton (my hairy bother) gets really jealous when i do though.  I don't think he likes to share his daddy with me.  Too bad! HaHa!  He keeps trying to smell me too and his wiskers tickle and make me giggle.  Mommy thinks its cute when i giggle.

Well speaking of cuddling, i'm going to go do just that.  Nite everyone.
