supa star

Paparazzi Mommy caught these exclusive shots of the wild new Rock star,
widely known as Jaxy-Jax.
He was caught trying to escape Club Nap-time.
We don't know if he succeeded,
But sure looked cool doing it.

One cool dude.

!!!!!! News-flash !!!!!
Jaxy-Jax is with the band!

my picture perfect.... (jax style)

I have never & (probably) will never,
claim to be a photographer.
I just love capturing all the crazy/beautiful moments,
of my oh so CRAZZZY/BEAUTIFUL life.

My goal for this year is to add to my mad camera skills.
won't be difficult.
This girl has never even tried photo shop.
(is that even normal???)
Any who...
 my photos are picture perfect, to me.
How can they not be,
with the cutie-patootie I have.

     I had a bit of a "moment" this morning. I was looking through all my albums, & realized that there are hardly any pics of Mr. Jax & me. (Hardly any pics of me at all) Of course, moms are usually the ones behind the camera. I kinda started to freak out... just a bit. What if something happened, God forbid.... But what if "something" did happen. Then it did not help my insanity that we just finished watching the new Kathryn Heigl movie, "Life As We Know It," last week. Great sweet movie, btw, just so very sad. So what would any rational mom do in this moment.... 

     1. grab camera
   2. grab 2 year old
   3. try to take picture of mommy and & 2 year old jax  
   4. (this is the big one) try to do all of this at the same time.

Did I mention, I will be trying to hold jax still, steady the camera,
& get an actual picture of us both?

(taken by me)


                                                            Ha... HA... HAAAA!

I do know how ridiculous this all sounds,
But it was fun.
 I actually got a few keepers.
Most blurry, not in focus, some w only half of jaxy,
some of just jaxy,
But pretty perfect to me.

we started out w/ a nice shave

then the phone rang...

(obviously,it's a shaver/phone)

It was for mommy
(hahaha...apparently a serious conversation)

What you are about to see next is pretty cute.
Jax loves to play w/ mommy's camera.
He also loves to take pictures.
He'll hold the camera lens right up to his face,
I mean right up to his face!
I have a million pics that I call "buger shots."
They're all looking up his cute lil nose.
 I can't bring myself to delete half of them.

So he was playing w/ my old camera....

  He took yet another picture...
I was playing around posing for him,
and he actually shot this.

                                    Pretty amazing.... rigth?!
(Not me, hahaha, that he took this!)
Maybe I do have a future photographer on my hands... ey?

Me & curly.

Any day that ends with cuddles,
on the kitchen floor,
is one good day.

the lollipop kid

Really, what's better than a lollipop...?

 2 lollipops!!

Oh garsh...

Here we go again...

I think puppy & mr jax have some sort of "deal" worked out.
(At least jax is a fantastic sharer)

sticky fingered
dirty faced
crazy curly haired
all boy

You'll always be my baby boy.
You make my heart go

mama's book worm

     I'm so excited Jax is finally ready for real books, paper pages & all! Well... kinda! At least he doesn't go on mission "rip & destroy" immediately. I have to watch him like a mama hen, but he's finally luvn his books. It was so endearing watching him "read" these books. They are fantastic, with all sorts of great Disney adventure stories. Especially one of my monsters favs, Monster's Inc.

One absolutely funny/brilliant thing about my Jax is that....
He can point out any popular "brand logo" out there.
Especially movie companies.
Don't ask me how or why...
It's the funniest thing!

jax where does it say disney... ?

& pixar... ?

That's my boy!

Oh how i love those little hands

      I had to get a shot of this.
 Jax actually volunteering to take a nap.
This is a definite first.
I think we'll have story time in the afternoon,

~ The End ~

flashback friday~ home

     This picture means so much,
& so many different things to me.

It was taken the night we brought our
lil bundle of joy home from the hospital.

This was also the 1st time I saw Jackson's room finished!
I actually let daddy completely decorate the nursery.
It was so sweet (& brave) of him to want to take this very big job on,
& it brought tears to my eyes.
(thank goodness, for him, they were happy tears. lol)

When I look back at this shot,
I can remember the tears running down my face.
I adore pictures that let you recount the feeling you had when taking them.

I also remember that time kinda stood still,
 for just a second.
I knew that Greg would be an amazing father.
That was never ever a question to me.
when I saw this handsome fella' holding our baby boy,
I'd never felt so lucky.
He was the true meaning
of a daddy.

In that moment... 
standing there with our new baby,

I was looking at my family.
~my home~

Wuvn our new floors *********** (& hugs too)

     We finally just finished putting in new hardwood floors in our kitchen. I Know this is pretty vain...., but I'm pretty much in love with them. Now there's only a million & 8 more things we want to do. One thing a time, one thing at a time. We had a fun weekend breaking in the new floors!

                                           as you can see...

    I then had a brilliant idea...

For Christmas I got daddy & jax these,
cheesy but oh so adorable,    
matching "I wuv hugs" t-shirts.
(we saw the t-shirt on the tv show "Supernatural."
Greg (Baby daddy) thought it was awesome,
so I scoured the internet to find it...
Merry Christmas Honey!)

Ladies... come on,
how can you resist a handsome hunk (x2) in a
"I wuv hugs" shirt... right?
I better not let them leave the house w/ out me!

silly daddy,
i love him.

~back to my brilliant idea~

I had daddy go change into his matching teddy shirt too.
I thought it be fun to get a quick pic of my my handsome boys
in their irresistible t-shirts. 

Easier said then done.
Here we gooooo...

Ok... we give up jax
U win, buddy.

That's a wrap folks!
