A year ago yesterday we had found out were were pregnant and now we have this beautiful baby boy in our lives.  What was life even like before Paxon? It's hard to remember.

What a great past month! I can hardly believe that Pax is almost 4 months old.  How do I go from "oh my goodness, how am I going to give birth?" to "This is the best thing ever!" We have been keeping busy this summer, with really who knows what.  The days are turning like book pages and I just want to keep re-reading the first few pages.  I know everyone says it goes fast, but this is crazy!  Summer SLOW DOWN!

Dear Paxon,
Your personality is exploding! It is so fun to just hang out with you.  You are just such a happy baby.  We started swim lesson with Griffin this month.  You two look so cute in your swim trunks.  You are all about the back float, and when your not doing the back float you keep putting your head back to let us know that's what you want to be doing.  The other night we went to open swim and by the end you were a little fussy so we took you out of the water and before we could wrap the towel around you, you were sleeping.  It was so funny.  Daddy has been able to spend so much time with us, it is so nice all of the family time.  We went to a beach in Sycamore the other day, we had no idea it was even there.  We will be going back there lots more.  We had your dedication this month and you looked so handsome in your suit.  You did a really good job while we were up in front of the church, as soon as it was over you fell asleep on your Auntie Madie.  Speaking of Auntie Madie, she loves you so much.  We hang out with her atleast once a week and she loves spoiling you with cute outfits and lots of kisses.  You are rolling over like a little alligator, people are always saying how they cant believe you are so strong.  You love your jumper and could play in it for hours if we let you.  You are finally sleeping in your crib for naps, you seem to sleep best in your crib.  I am sure you will be sleeping in there at night soon enough.  Love you to pieces Bubby! Happy 3 months!
