It's a......................................


We are so excited to add a baby girl to our little family!

Happy Birthday to you.......

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Jaxon, Happy birthday to you!!!

That's right our little Jaxie is a big 2 year old today! I can't believe that he's not a baby anymore. He's a TODDLER. He is a crazy little boy with a cute personality. I love him with all my heart and I am so grateful to be his mommy!

Jaxon Daniel May 28th 2008

1st Birthday

This morning on his 2nd Birthday

It's crazy how much he's changed. I took Jaxon in for his 2 year check up. He is 29lbs 8oz in the 70 percentile for his weight and a big 36 1/2 inches in the 94 percentile for his height. He is huge! Now I know why people always tell me he is a big boy. I love watching him learn and grow. He knows his ABC's and we are working on his numbers. He walks around the house saying 1,2,1,2,1,2. It's a start. He amazes me everyday!

Happy Birthday Jaxie! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!!!

TrIcK oR TrEaT!

This October has been tons of fun. We went to Bishop's Pumpkin Patch, to our ward Trunk-or-Treat, carved pumpkins and of course went trick-or-treating Halloween night!

Jax doing the hand movements to the Itsy Bitsy Spider as I sing the song. Singing songs are the only way to get him to look at the camera, so that I can take a picture.

Taking a little walk through the pumpkin patch.

Here he is doing the hand movements to another song. He is so silly:)

This was at our ward Trunk-or-Treat. Jaxon had a blast! He was so excited to walk around and carry his pumpkin bag. He loved looking at all the kids in their costumes.

I just love this little Pirate!

Jax cleaning out his pumpkin. He actually did not like the gooey feeling. This was the first and last time he stuck his hands in the pumpkin.

Jaxon and his finished pumpkin. He would not hold it after we carved the face. I think it scared him.

Jax trick-or-treating.

Halloween morning Jax woke up with a fever and no other symptoms. Just to play it safe we stayed home from our family Halloween party. Jaxon really missed trick-or-treating with all of his cousins:( That evening his fever dropped so we dressed him up and took him around to a few houses.

I love the month of October! I love the fall and all the festivities! I am already thinking about what Jaxon will be next year for Halloween. I can't wait!

That's right Jaxon has an obsession and he is only 16 months. Jaxon has to watch Super Why along with Sid the Science Kid every morning. I don't mind because he actually learns a lot. If you ask Jax what sound does an "S" make he will say sssss. He does the same for "B" and "D". I love to watch him watch Super Why because he gets so excited and dances all over the place. It's too cute!

This is Super Why

I just can't believe how much Jaxon is growing and learning. I love this age even though he can be a little crazy at times :)

New Brighton & Monterey

Every year we go on a camping trip with Josh's family. This year we also started our annual camping trip with our "Circles" friends. It just so happens that both of our camping trips were at New Brighton beach in Capitola one right after the other. And in between our camping trips we stayed with our friends, Brian and Hilary Wiest in Monterey.

The first trip was with Josh's family. We went Thursday thru Saturday morning and we had a ton of fun, especially Jaxon! Jaxon loved playing in the dirt. His hands, face, shoes and clothes were covered in dirt pretty much for the whole trip. We went to the beach, soaked up some sun and watched Jax enjoy his first experience with sand. He loved it!!! We also went to Pizza My Heart in Santa Cruz and to this awesome ice cream shop called Marianne's. They had about 50 flavors! It's the best ice cream ever!!! We really enjoyed spending time with family.

On Saturday morning we packed up camp and headed to Monterey to stay with our friends. After camping we enjoyed being able to relax indoors, take a shower without having to wear flip flops and spending time with our friends. Hilary worked hard to find us free passes to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Jaxon had so mush fun exploring the aquarium and looking at all the fish. Thank you so much Brian and Hilary for letting us stay with you!

On Monday afternoon we packed up again and headed back to New Brighton Beach. There were six families that were able to make it. The Morgan's, Perryman's, Lamb's, Ashby's, Wiest's and of course us The Mortimer's. We missed the Todd's and Vanhorne's. :( Maybe next year? It was so nice to see everybody. We all met a few years back in the Roseville 9th ward and became good friends. Then as life goes on we all moved and went our separate ways. Well except for us, we are still in the Roseville 9th ward. We had fun catching up on everyone's lives and seeing all of the beautiful kids. We made another trip to Pizza My Heart and Marianne's. Then we headed to the Boardwalk, for fun and rides. We had a BLAST! We already miss all of our friends and can't wait until next year!
