Birthday Fun with Granddaddy

Happy Birthday, Granddaddy!
I think Granddaddy likes his new picture of Jax.

This is good stuff!

We enjoyed a night out with my parents and brother as we celebrated my dad's birthday at Outback Steakhouse - a favorite place for family celebrations. Mom brought a cake from The Flour Shop - yummy as usual. Jax is beginning to love cake just like his mommy. We hope you had a wonderful birthday, Dad! We love you!

Granddaddy treated Jax to a yummy sugar cookie after lunch one day. Jax loves meeting his Granddaddy at the mall. Granddaddy strolls him around and plays with him while mommy shops. Fun for everyone!

Monkeying Around

Yesterday, Jax and I went to The Monkey's Treehouse in Bellevue. Jax loved the treehouse the most. What a fun place! I had heard great things about it so I'm so glad that we made the trip. We will definitely be going back soon.

Let's Do Lunch

After Jax's pictures on Monday we took time out for lunch at Chick-Fil-A. Jax loves chicken nuggets and fruit. This is always a fun time for us.

From Baby to Toddler

On Monday I took Jax to have his two year pictures made. He is so big - no longer a baby - he's a toddler. Of course, he will always be sweet baby Jax to me.

Jax had so much fun at his birthday party on Saturday night. He was delighted to see Mema, Granddaddy, Grandma, Uncle Jay, Uncle John, Aunt JuJu and Savannah arrive to celebrate his second birthday! Mickey Mouse was the theme of the big celebration. We feasted on yummy burgers with Mickey shaped cheese, Mickey shaped pasta salad, chips and dip, Mickey shaped pimento cheese sandwiches and fruit. I also made Mickey Mouse brownies along with a Mickey cake. We had a wonderful evening celebrating sweet baby Jax. He received lots and lots of fun stuff to play with and some new clothes and pjs, too. Thanks to everyone for making it a special night for Jax! We love you all.

24 Special Things About Sweet Baby Jax

Today has been all about Jax. John and I took him to Merridee's for breakfast, got him "chick chick" from Chick-fil-A for lunch and fixed a dinner of yummy spaghetti. He got an early birthday present last Friday so he had fun bouncing in his new outdoor bouncer. Sweet baby has not been feeling well since last Saturday so his birthday celebration was postponed until Saturday. We were disappointed not to celebrate with family on his special day but John and I agreed that it would be more fun for him after he was feeling better. He had a good day and seemed to be much better than yesterday but still not totally himself. So we have the "big party" to look forward to in a few days. We had a "mini" party tonight. We got him a cupcake so that he could blow out candles and we sang "Happy Birthday" to him.
The past few days I have thought a lot about the day Jax was born and all of the many things that make him so special to John and I. Just wanted to share a few of those things with you. Here are 24 Special Things About Sweet Baby Jax.
