My baby girl

Today was Hazel’s blessing.  She looked beautiful and her blessing was perfect.  We were worried that she would be fussy and cry, but Jake said she smiled at him through most of it.  This little girl is my angel.  She has me completely wrapped around her teeny tiny finger.  Just ask Jake! :)  At 3 1/2 months she sleeps fairly well at night, much better than my last two.  She’s content most of the time and smiles at me whenever I need a little pick me up.  I was looking at one of me wedding pictures today thinking how different I was back then.  I had no idea of the treasures and trials my 3 children would bring me through the next 8 years.  Now that I know, I can’t thank my wedding day self enough for making the choice to get married and have these wonderful children.  I am so blessed.  And for your viewing pleasure…… P9050341

Her dress is vintage! :)  It was in a bag of stuff that belonged to my mom.  It was actually a peach dress, but I bleached it white so she could use it as a blessing dress.  I love it.

Children’s Garden

Jaxon had his first day of kindergarten last week.  He did great!  I was happy to know that he was a little nervous to jump right in.  He needed me just enough.  So far he’s had a few little sad moments with school, like the day I noticed a tear streak on his face, and after some prodding I learned that he got in trouble for being naughty.  “She told me to leave my sillies at home”  It broke my heart to think of him holding back the tears.  But whenever we ask if he like Kindergarten he says, “of course I do!”  I got to volunteer on Friday and it was good to see him in his element.  That kid can’t wait to learn everything there is to know.

Jaxon is a great kid.  He has been fishing lots with daddy lately and loves it.  I just never thought he’d be old enough to go a full day with his daddy on the river.  But now he’s almost 6 years old.  He says funny things like “oh mangos” when he can’t have something he wants.  He’s always wrestling with daddy, and loves nerf guns.  I love this kid so much and I’m happy to see him growing up into such a great little man.  I love you Jax!
