Poor Little Boy...

I took Jaxon to the pediatrician on Friday, and he is in the 50% percentile for his weight, 90% percentile for his height, and 95% percentile for the size of his head! He only had to have one shot too, but he screamed for a while after, but that happens every time! The doctor told us we could start him on whole milk!

Then on Saturday night I noticed that he had some small red bumps on the back of his neck, and he had kept tugging at his ears earlier that day, to the point that his skin was bright red behind his ears....I gave him tylenol that night, and just held him for a while before he fell asleep. Every couple of hours I could hear a little whimper, but he was still sound asleep! I knew that he just didn't feel very good, but I knew it couldn't be his teeth because he always is drooling like crazy, and he has a runny nose along with it, but he didn't have either!

On Sunday, he was sitting on my lap in Sacrament, and I noticed red bumps all over his neck, and I looked down his shirt and saw he had them all over his back! Jake took Jaxon out into the hall about four or five times cause Jaxon wasn't the least bit happy. That NEVER happens! Jaxon is pretty much always happy and content! He usually loves to watch all the people around us!

Today I took him back to the pediatrician, to make sure it wasn't a big deal, but I am soooo glad I did go, because Jaxon has Roseola. It's starts as a fever, and then breaks into a rash that starts on your torso and moves to your back and arms and legs! It's unknown how it's caused or how it can be treated except for Tylenol. The doctor gave us some Zyrtec to help alleviate any allergies he may have, and then told me to give him a small dose of Benedryl to help clear it up! I've also been putting Caladryl all over his body. The virus is contageous, and more likely for kids to get than adults, but it is frustrating not knowing how it's caused! It's supposed to last anywhere from 3 to 7 days! I just hope he starts feeling better soon!

Which Twilighter Are You?

I'm a Esme! I found out through Which Twilight Female Are You? Take the quiz and find out!
Take the Quiz and Share Your Results!

You are thoughtful and care very deeply for your family. A loving home is of great
importance to you and you always try to make people feel welcome. Although you have a great capacity to love, you also have a great capacity to hurt, so at times you can be
sensitive. You're firm when you need to be, but people trust your judgment and
appreciate the kind way you always handle things.

Scrapbook Expo

Jaxon got his 12 month shots today, which was no fun for either of us, but he was such a brave little guy! I told him if he was good I'd take him to the Scrapbook Expo!! Just kidding Dad-I told him we were going to this cool place that had lots of tools that are very useful! Anyhoo, I remembered I had a free admission coupon to get in, and can I just say that I was excited for that? You betcha, because when I got to the Dixie Center I saw that admission was $12.00! INSANE! So I got my wristband, and walked into a mecca of stamps, embellishments, and ahhhh the sweet smell of scrapbook paper! It was like Christmas! And who doesn't LOVE the free make and takes ?! I got sooooo much stuff, and I spent under $100.00! Let's face it, scrapbooking costs about as much as it does for my husbands golf, guns, and sunflower seed addiction! So I think I deserve to go a little crazy, but yet I still come home and here "more scrapbooking.....are you sure you need more?" all I gotta say is "yup" end of story! I LOVE to scrapbook! Anyone could get me a gift card to a scrapbook store, and I think that would be THE BEST gift I could ever get!

FREE Make 'n Take Christmas Tags (I think I'll use them for neighbor gifts this year!)

Jaxon's 1 Year Pictures

These are Jaxon's 1 year pictures that Angie and Jamie did for us! I think that they turned out great! I posted the first picture so everyone could see the look that we always get! It's kind of a scuzz, but confused, and irritated all wrapped into one look! I can't help but laugh when he does it, and sometimes he squints harder when I do!! He does the same look when he has his hands up in the air, like he's telling them off, cause they aren't doing what he wants them to do! I can't believe Jaxon is one! We have enjoyed every minute of being parents, and it's been even better because my baby has been the most laid back, happy baby! We love our little guy!

Halloween Fun!

We had so much fun on Halloween!! We went to a trunk or treat down the street from my sister's house in Clinton! We got tons of candy in about 20 min. and didn't have to go door to door! I'm definately going to look for a trunk or treat for years to come! Brooklyn was Minnie Mouse, (perfect because she can wear it when we go to Disneyland in a few weeks) Jaxon was Baby Dracula, and Amber dressed up with fun witch shoes/socks and Awesome eyelashes, and I was a Witch!

Jaxon's 1st Birthday!!

Pumpkin Patch

While Jaxon and I were up north, we went to a pumpkin patch with Brooklyn and Amber and Paul! We picked out some pumpkins, went through a maze of hay, and ran around the field! Brooklyn had so much fun running through the maze!
