Axl Joe is one year old today! He was born 3 weeks early at 12:19 pm on a Tuesday. He was a tiny little guy weighing in at a whopping 5 lbs 14 ounces and only 18 1/4 inches long! Jared and I loved how tiny he was! We really cherish those times now, because he his one BIG one year old! We love his chunkiness now though too! It's all such a blessing from the Lord!Little Man, I'm beyond blessed to be your mommy! We've both been through a lot in your first year! You've always been a healthy little guy, but have been through the ringer with tests making sure you are healthy. You've had an ultrasound, x-ray and ct scan all in this first year of life! Always turning out well, but sometimes a little nerve wracking at the time for your momma. You've always been such a trooper through it all. You're a pretty laid back little dude yet extremely rambunctious! You're a sweetie pie too! We love you little personality! You love animals! You love to explore! You love walking and trying to run! You are for sure a go-getter! One of your very favorite things to do is take a shower with daddy! I mean, you LOVE it! Daddy loves it too! Daddy and I are so blessed to be your parents! We thank God for each new day he trusts us to be your mommy and daddy! He has great plans for you Axl Joe Steven!

Sb got her ears pierced a few weeks ago for the second time! We tried a few months back but they got infected because one ear didn't pierce all the way through the first time. Yikes! Not a good experience. But this time was great! Spicer Beth didn't even cry! She had asked me to do it earlier this week and was persistent, so I told her if she was ready we could do it!

This is a long one... Wow! Did June fly by or what?! I've decided that it for sure is one of my favorite months of the year! Not too hot but hot enough to swim and full of fun summer time activities! love it! Man, was our June cram-packed! We kicked it off with VBS at church. It was such a joy to take "both" my kiddos with me this year! I love working at VBS. This year I was able to teach scripture to the kiddos! such a blessing seeing the kids learn God's word. And they learn sooooo fast!

Height: N/A Weight: I'm guessing 24 lbs + (he's a heavy little fella) Food: Lots of formula. He's started eating some table food this month. He loves it. We also began giving him his juice plus gummies this month, he really loves those! Sleep: He's been sleeping great lately, he gets 11-12 hours each night. Naps in the morning for an hour or so and in the afternoon for a couple of hours! Clothes: 12 months and some 18 months. Size 6 shoe. He wears size 4 diaper. New stuff: He got his first tooth this month! Yay! with several more on their way! He took his first steps this month! The day before father's day he took 3 steps! The most steps he's taken at one time is 6 steps. He isn't completely walking but he's beginning. He is a perfectly happy crawler so I'm not sure when he'll give that up! :) and boy can that boy bear crawl! lol! Favorites: He loves anything and everything mechanical. You show him a mower and the boy can't contain himself! He love, love, loves Ma's cows! When we are at her house he looks out into the pasture and says "Moo" constantly. When the cows come up to the fence he gets beside himself excited! I love it! Guess he's all boy between the cows and mechanics! :) Axl really likes to push things while crawling or walking. He likes playing with big sister especially in her kitchen area! I love to watch them play together! It's so hard to believe he will turn one this month! Where in the world has this year gone?! We've had a great one though and look forward to watching this little man grow up! You are such a sweet sweet boy Axl Joe! You are constantly on the move and keep your momma hoppin! You really like putting everything in your mouth so I'm constantly making sure things are picked up or out of your reach! haha! You are extremely strong. I honestly don't think I've ever met a baby who is as strong as you! Everyone is always commenting on how cute and big you are! You are a really big boy for your age! Some people say it looks like you have muscles on your shoulders and arms. I think you are going to built just like your daddy! You are pure joy and happiness and your mommy, daddy and big sister love you with all our hearts! Happy 11 months JoJo! :)
