Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

Well, my little Jaxon had his 3rd Birthday. I can't believe that I have a 3 year old. When did I get so old? It seems like kids birthdays are a time for reflection, because I could not stop thinking about all that has happened in these past 3 years. I'm so grateful that the 18 hour labor only has to happen once! There are so many things I miss about my baby Jaxon, but so many more things that I love about him now. I took these pictures of him playing in the leaves on his 1st birthday, and on his 3rd, and he doesn't even seem like the same boy! But one thing has not changed one bit. He has a love for life that is unmatched. He is always up for any adventure, and is never happier than when he is out God's creations. We just went fishing today, in the rain, and he loved every minute of it. He loves Jake and I with such a pure and strong love, and he often tells me so in his sweet little voice. He keeps me so busy and sometimes drives me crazy, but I wouldn't want him anything different then the sweet, loving, crazy little kid that he is.
I love you Jaxon Jake Christensen.
Happy Birthday!

I'm crying right now!!! That little message for Jax was so incredibly sweet. Such a great description of who he is. He will love that someday and until then I'll just cry everytime I read it.
