Getting to be a big boy

So this morning I got up and I looked at the clock and it was 9:20 and usually Paxton is awake by now and I couldn't hear him making any noises. So I thought I would check on him because usually he is in there talking to himself and laughing, so I opened the door and my sweet boy had pulled himself up on the crib. Now at first I just thought oh my gosh I have got to lower your crib mattress I don't want you to try and get out and fall. Then I thought I have to go get my camera look how cute you are just peering over the crib looking at me with those big blue eyes. After that then my next thought was where did my cute little helpless boy go that completely depends on me for everything. I almost wanted to cry because it feels like yesterday that I just brought you home from the hospital. And now you are 8 months and getting so big. Man I love you Paxton I don't know what my life would be without you.

Christmas Fun!

Sitting in front of the tree on Christmas eve at Brandon's parents house.
Paxton with his great grandparents.
I love this picture of him and Brandon they look so cute together and Christmas eve was so much fun.

Well every Christmas eve we always get new pajamas. Which I totally love. And for anybody who know Brandon's family they are total Utah fans. So this year we all got Utah pajamas. And Brandon's mom tie died all of our shirts to go with them. These are probably my favorite pajamas yet.

Christmas morning we went to my moms house first because she always has a big Christmas breakfast. Paxton had so much fun opening his presents.

He got this really cute vacuum from my sister and he totally loved it.

Later on we went to Brandon's grandmas house. We had so much fun being with the family.
Christmas was so great and busy we also went to Brandon's moms house and they gave us a Caribbean cruise for Christmas and I am so excited. We also went to my grandmas too. I am so proud of Paxton for being such a trooper and going to four different houses on Christmas. Also the highlight of my Christmas was I got to talk to my brother who is serving a mission in Houston, Texas. It was so good to hear from and I managed to suck back the tears til after I hung up the phone.

Sitting on Santas lap

We went to Willow Creek country club for our annual family Christmas party tonight and Paxton sat on Santas lap. He was so good and he didn't even cry in fact he was so intrigued that it took like 5 pictures to even get him to look at us instead of Santa.

Paxton was being so cute and giving daddy kisses.

Brandon's grandma insisted that all of the grand kids get a picture taken with Santa. I really cant remember the last time I got my picture taken with Santa it was really funny. But we had so much fun all getting together and we look forward to it every year.

Sneaky Little Boy

I seriously left the room for like 2 minutes and he was no where near the tree when I left. I came back and he is trying to pull one of the ornaments off the tree. So after that I decided to watch him and see what he would do.
He was surprisingly gentle he loved the bow but he just touched it softly instead of ripping it off the present.

He finally got the ornament, and yup straight to the mouth where everything else goes. I moved him after that and so far he has left the tree alone, but I cant say as much for the DVD rack.

Crawling backwards

So the fun has begun! Paxton has learned this week to crawl backwards. He hasn't figured out how to make him self go forward. He always gets stuck where ever he is going because he cant see that he is backing into something. Apparently he is a little behind on the crawling thing, I friends who have babies that have been crawling for a month. But I think Paxton is just too fat to really move around. But I'm glad because I have been praying that he would wait til after christmas when I can put my tree and decorations away. But he really is soo much fun! He still cant go way fast but he gets faster and faster everyday.

7 Things I can do...

1. I can talk all day and for anyone who knows me I can definitely talk your ear off.
2. Shop, I love to shop so much and if I had the money I could probably shop everyday.
3. Scrapbook, especially working on Paxton's scrapbook that I am way proud of and I have put so much time into.

5. Playing games, which I seriously think I'm good at and I could play games for hours.

7. I can wake board and I love to its one of my passions.

7 Things I cannot do...

1. My hair- I try to do it but I suck at it so bad!

6. Saying no to people, I am the worst at that I usually let people walk all over me because I'm afraid to tell people no.
7. Doing laundry, well I can do laundry but I always have stacks and stacks of it. Brandon has to ask if he has any clean clothes to wear because I hate to do laundry.
