I haven’t been so good at keeping my posts updated lately. Bottom line – TOO busy. This is such a busy time of year for us, it seems. And holidays are coming up fast, so…no rest for the wicked – I mean the weary! (LOL) But, just to keep those of you updated who are STILL hanging in there with me and checking my blog (bless your hearts), I feel like taking the time to write a little bit today.

Pregnancy is really something. I am in my 26th week (in my 6th month, nearing 7, according to the pregnancy “bible” – What to Expect When You’re Expecting). It has truly been a joy so far. It really has. I have been blessed with *almost* a complete lack of sickness. At the beginning I felt kinda rough from time to time, but I honestly cannot complain after knowing what my mom went through with my brother and me. I am so thankful! I know it is because my mom has been praying since Josh and I got married that I would not be sick like she was if - and when - we got pregnant. So, major shout out to my mom! So thankful for her, and that God hears and answers our prayers. He is gracious.
Our little man, Jaxon Joshua, is growing by leaps and bounds. He weighs about 2 pounds now. He is a wiggle worm, which Josh and I are so thankful for. It helps us know he’s ok. We are absolutely thrilled to find out what his personality will be like. Like Daddy? Like Momma? Or a perfect mix of both? OR totally different than either? We shall see! We’re just thankful God is allowing us to borrow our little Jaxon boy for a while. What an honor and a precious gift. We talk to him a lot. He can hear us now. Sometimes he even reacts. I tell him every day, “Daddy and Momma love you more than anyone else in this world ever could, but God loves you even more than we ever could.” Gotta teach ‘em early!

Dear Jaxon,
Momma can’t wait to hold you! It is hard to believe that I could love someone so much, whom I haven’t even personally met yet, but I do. Your daddy and I love you more than anyone ever could. But God loves you even more! Wow! I can’t wait to spend time rocking you, feeding you, reading to you, bathing you, playing with you, staring at you…I could go on and on!

Your room is coming along. We think you will LOVE it. It is so cute and so different – unlike anyone else’s. Daddy worked hard and made you some pretty cool wall art. He is still working on some things. Your daddy is awesome, Jaxon. You will ADORE him, like momma does. He adores you already!

Daddy and momma are excited make our family a family of 3. You will be such a wonderful addition!
Your grandparents, uncles, aunts, great grandparents, great aunts, great uncles, cousins, friends…(this list could go on forever)…are SO excited to meet you as well. Get those cheeks ready for some kisses, big guy! You are loved.
Everything we do, we talk about how fun it will be to do with you! Can’t wait to snuggle up with you, tickle you, play outside with you, watch some Batman with you (that was for daddy), watch some Mountaineer football and basketball with you, take you to your first football and basketball games (hopefully next year!), teach you how to talk and crawl and walk…oh boy, it is going to be TOO FUN! And we will be there every step of the way!
               So, keep cookin’ in there, big guy. We love you SOOO much! You will be here before we know it!

XOXO ~Momma

Check back for more pics and more posts – hopefully soon!
