Jaxon John Morris
I have been waiting until I had the time and energy to add pictures from Kam's birthday, write about Christmas and add Christmas pictures, and write about the arrival of our newest family member. Well, I have now realized that energy will not be here for a while and Amy suggested I just start from where we are right now. So, where we are is that our new little guy is here! Jaxon John was born January 20--inauguration day--at 7:36 pm. He weighed 8 lbs 2 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. He was born with lots of dark hair. And today he is 6 weeks old!! These have been the fastest flying weeks ever! Jaxon is a sweet baby. He loves to snuggle. He likes to be held and as soon as we pick him up, he curls into a ball. He didn't cry for the first few weeks--he just squeaked and squealed. When Halli's teacher asked Halli to tell the class about her new brother, she said, "He has lots of dark hair and squeals like a girl." Until now I was a little sad about the age gap between our first three children and Jaxon, but now I realize how great it is. I have big amazing helpers and Jaxon gets in his cuddle time. I have also had requests from Halli to please let her know when Jax has a dirty diaper and to please not change it without her. What more can I ask for? We have a healthy new baby and helpers to go around!
