Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.
Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night .
Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep .
Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom .
Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy .
Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom
May you always be overwhelmed by the Grace of God rather than by the cares of life.
Last night mommy gave me a little tree thingy... (she said its broccoli) i put my thumb on it & push it around a lil then i just looked at her like "i'm suppose to eat this??". Shes crazy if she thinks im gonna eat a tree... I threw it down for Bubba to eat but he didnt want it either. Mommy gets mad when i give bubba food but i think it is soooo funny! I throw a piece, then laugh real loud, mommy says no & then i do it again & again! Lol. She eventually laughs too cause im just cute like that but she tries to hide it so i dont see it. She dont fool me! ;-)
I'm also drinking mommy & daddys milk sometimes now too. The other day when we went to the store mommy got me the chocolate kind too! Its pretty good! Its really good w/ poptarts! Me & mommy both love the brown sugar & cinnamon kind. We like other kinds too but thats our favorite.
Ok well i just thought i'd do a little update.

Helped mommy wash the cars yesterday... well ok i just rode along as we drove through. I wasnt to sure about it & kept straighting & wiggling my toes ready to jump at anytime. Those brush things are loud & the water sprayers too!
We made it through w/ mommys car & then vaccum it. Mommy thought id be scared of the vaccum but i thought it was funny. A long hose making all that noise. Mommy just moved me around from one seat to another until we got it all done.
Then we came home & got daddys truck & went & did it all over again! This time mommy let me get up front w/ her before we went though. I didnt mind it as much that time cause i knew mommy would protect me but i did squeeze her fingers pretty tight a couple times. :-)
Then daddy decided to burn the wood pile so when we went out today the ashes had blown on mommys car. :-( So we had to go wash it AGAIN! This time she just sprayed it off & dried it. The last time she did that my cousins were w/ us & the sprayer scared me. I was screamin & Lacey kept knockin on the window tryin to tell mommy but she thought she was playin so every time she knocked mommy would spray again... she told mommy when she got done & mommy felt bad but i was ok after mommy got me. Silly mommy!

Last week when mommy was off we got out & about a couple days and just had a good time together. I love hangin w/ mommy and i can tell she loves spending the day w/ ME! :-) One day we went to White Castle for lunch and i pigged out! Their chicken rings are pretty darn good! This eating "real" food thing is kinda nice. I was mommy's little buddy, but then again, i'm ALWAYS mommy's little buddy! Where ever she goes, I must also go. I'm a momma's boy and i love my mommy!

Can't make up my mind if i want to crawl or walk... so i'm crawlking!! Lol. I get on my hands & one knee & one foot & i go! Hehe! Hey i get around now so thats all that matters to me. Daddy says "hes doing the funny crawl" again and mommy just laughs! :-) Oh & I found the cat food today! Mommy took it away before i got to try it though. I'm sure i'll get another chance!
One here at my house on the 6th and another in mommy’s hometown at Chuck-E-Cheese on the 13th. I had a great time at both and got lots of cool new toys!
My party theme was Thomas the train. Mommy made “train ticket” invitations for me (which i liked looking at and playing with) and she made me a Train cake for my first party. My Aunt Michelle made my cake for my 2nd party and i loved it! Even got me a little train from it. Mommy says she is so talented.
A lot has happened in the last few months… i got my 2nd tooth a week after my 1st and just the other day my 3rd one came through. Now my 4th has come though and mommy says another is on its way. These teeth sure do come in handy when eating! :-) I like biting into things and i’ve been eating a lot of new things lately. I get to try out the big kid food at lunch at daycare now. Some days i don’t like it and i just eat my baby food that mommy sends but some days i love it!
I love when mommy makes cinnamon rolls for breakfast! They are my favorite breakfast food! When we went to Mamaw’s i went to eat w/ her and papaw and had me some shrimp and rice and liked it too! Yesterday my cousins were over and mommy got us pizza and was
tearing mine into lil pieces when i reached and grabbed the whole slice from her and went to town on it! It was stuffed crust so of course i ate the crust first… (hey that’s how the commercial shows to do it!) Mommy laughed at me! Said i’m growing up way to fast!
I got my 1st Haircut too! (July 31st) Mommy says it made me go from looking like a baby to a big boy instantly! I didn’t mind the clipper thing that they used but i was ready for a nap and wished they would just leave me alone so i could go to sleep. They did pretty good though considering. Daddy had to touch up a spot on the side when we got home while mommy held me still cause i wouldn’t let them finish that one little section.
I loved playing out in the pool this summer! Splashin’ is my new middle name… (according to mommy) I love the water! I floated around in my lil float in the bigger pool w/ mommy and than other times i sat and played in my little pool while mommy “got some sun” beside me. I bet next summer will be even better!!
Well mommy says it’s bedtime so until next time…

Today after mommy picked me up we went to the store and got me a new bath seat. I've pretty much out grown my little baby tub. This seat you get to sit down in the real tub and i loved it! I kicked and splashed and played with my little rubber ducky. Grandma & Danny came to see me the other week and brought me the ducks. I've got several ducks now & Mommy says i'll have even more fun when i start sitting better and can play with them all and then she'll get me all kinds of other toys to play with in there too. I can't wait!! And i think Bubba (the silly cat) got a little jealous... he loves water but mommy wouldn't let him join me. But as soon as i got out we looked and he was drinkin the water. Mommy says he's gonna be a bad influence on me. lol I already try to lick the water off my shoulder. And i've realized that rain is water also... the other morning it was raining and as we went to the car i stuck my tounge out and tried to catch as much as i could. Mommy says that night when we got home i was sleeping and i did it again. (in my sleep!) I'm just a silly monkey though!

Than a few weeks later I had my first Christmas. It was a "White Christmas too!" We went home to mommy and daddy's hometowns and spent it with family. We stayed at Mammaw & Papaw Downeys cause they have a room there for all of us to stay in. Went and visited with my grandma & grandpa feller and some of my aunts & uncles too! I was a little cranky cause the time was different and i knew we weren't home so i was off schedule. And with the cold and snow mommy didn't want to get me out to much so we didn't get to go see everyone we wanted to but we will try to come to town again once this crazy weather gets better. Thank you everyone though for all the wonderfuel new toys and clothes i got. I love toys!!
The last night we were there mommy let me sleep in mamaw's room with them. Mamaw was really excited about it and so was mommy because she would actually be able to get some sleep. Ha! I didn't sleep good the whole time we were there so neither did she. The next morning we got up and mamaw gave me a bath in her little sink to get me all cleaned up to go to church for the first time. Mommy had got me a little outfit with a vest and tie and boy did i look sharp in that!! :-) Mommy said i was one handsome little dude! (but she always tells me that.)
At my last appointment on 12/20 i had grown another inch making me 25in tall and weighed 12.75lbs. I had to get shots that day too and i screamed so loud but as soon as the nurse was done mommy picked me up and i stopped. The nurse was suprised that all it took was for mommy to pick me up and she told me i was such a good boy so i even gave her a little smile. (even after she just stabbed me in both of my little legs.)
On another note, i turned 5 months old Jan. 9th. For my b-day i cashed in my piggy bank and daddy took me to buy a tv for my bedroom. I got a 32" LED and daddy hung it on the wall for me when we got home. Daddy wont let me have anything less than the best so he had to put some of his allowance in too! :) He is the best daddy ever! And I love it cause now i can watch the baby channel in my room too! And mommy has started giving me my baths in there since my room is warmer so now i get to take a bath and watch tv at the same time. I'm livin the life!! :-)
I'm trying to sit by myself nowadays but can only do it for a few seconds until i start falling over. I'm starting to eat more solids now too. Bananas are my favorite!! Greenbeans i hate! Mommy tried to be slick one night and give me some in between bites of bananas but i caught on to what she was doing and spit them back at her. I'm no dummy! lol I'm also trying to roll over. I haven't done it yet though. I try to get over on my side but then i get stuck. Mommy makes a game out of rolling me and i just love it! We both get so tickled whenever we play it. Mommy is good at making me laugh. And i love it when daddy plays helicoptor with me. You know the one where i get to fly in the air! I had fun when papaw did it too! Once they start though i don't want them to stop. I get mad when they do. My new thing now is growling. I do it all the time and now mommy and daddy do it back. We have so much fun playing! Execpt for when i'm cranky...
Speaking of cranky... these last few days i'm been a moody little dude so they say. I just want to play ALL the time and not sleep. And not sleeping good therefore makes me cranky. I can't help it, i just have so much fun playing. Why do we need sleep anyways?
Well, daddy is leaving for North Carolina in the morning so the next few days will be just me and mommy. I'm gonna miss daddy while he is away but i'm sure me and mommy will have lots of play and cuddle time. :-)
Okay, i'm done rambling on for tonight. Gotta get some sleep.
Love, Baby Jax!
