After having Jaxen to myself for 3 days, I kind of enjoyed the fact that Jaxen wanted his dad! I even had to laugh out loud on Monday to this sight...
Nik was trying to pay bills and take care of some stuff online - but Jaxen would not let Nik set him down. So, Nik just worked with/through/around Jaxen. It made me laugh! I had no sympathy for Nik - Ha!
By the way - I took Jaxen to the dentist Monday morning! His first time. He did great! He was very still during the x-rays. His teeth look good. They brushed them and put some vitamins on them, and then we were done. We go back in 6 months.
While we were there, they weighed him. He weighs 24.2 pounds. He has not gained much weight, but he is getting taller. Over the weekend, I noticed how most of his shirts no longer fit him. They are too small in the shoulders and too short. So yesterday I went out and bought him a few new shirts.
Wednesday, I decided to take Jaxen to the splash pad in town. I have seen kids play at these parks and have the greatest time. I knew Jaxen would have so much fun. I actually have been feeling guilty that I have not taken him prior. So I loaded him up and off we went. I was so excited!
We got there and Jaxen would not play in the water! He just kept staring at it. I finally got him close enough to get wet and he did not enjoy it so much. So we spent time walking around it. I was thinking he would warm up to the idea.
He didn't! So we went to the park instead, and played! At least I don't have to feel guilty anymore for depriving him of this fun place - ha!
One last story to leave you with today....
On my way to work this morning, I realized I forgot to put on my deodorant! Normally every morning, in the car, before I pull out of the garage... I smell my armpits. Yes I do. Seriously. It's just something I do....I guess to make sure I remembered my deodorant. I think this started when I first went back to work after having Jaxen. It was like once I sat in my car I finally had a minute of downtime. I would look at myself and make sure my hair was combed, that I put on mascara, had the proper work shoes/clothes on and that I remembered the deodorant. My brain was so scattered it was like a last minute check list. I don't check myself over that closely anymore...but for some reason, I still smell my arm pits.
I didn't do it this morning - and half way to work I realized I forgot to put on deodorant!!! So I stopped at the grocery store on the way to work and bought some. And you know that the checker-outer person just knew I was not wearing deodorant. Seriously, when that is your only purchase at a grocery store at 7:45am?! Yeah, he knew. Oh well. At least I don't stink!
Okay. One more thing. Long post, I know. I'm making up for my lack of blogging. And don't count on it getting better anytime soon. We have a super busy weekend and I still have yet to have a date night with my cutie husband. And we need one. Just saying.
But on with my last thing...
Nik sent me the following pictures at work this morning and I thought they were blogworthy!
Jaxen woke up really early this morning, so Nik got him and laid on the couch with him. Apparently he was pretty comfy!
THE END. FINALLY.
