2 months old!

Another month gone by. Jagger is getting bigger and is so much fun. He already has such a sweet little personality, smiling, laughing, and cooing all the time. I am so thankful for his little dimples too..I LOVE them! But, he is still learning how to sleep since he always wants to be touching someone while he sleeps. He's a good cuddler though. Anyway, here he is at 2 months: 12 lbs 6 oz. (he's a skinny guy), 24.5 inches long.
Here are some adorable pictures that my cousin Elaina took of Jag (and Jax) when he was just a week old!

To Infinity and Beyond!!!

Buzz Lightyear had a wonderful 3 days of Halloween! We had trunk-or-treat at my church on Friday night, then we had trunk-or treat at my parent's ward on Saturday night, then we handed out candy (and I took Jax to our neighbor's house to trick-or-treat) on Sunday! He looked so cute in his costume and he loved saying "To infinny beeyon"! Of course, he got waayyy to much candy, so we handed out what he didn't need to the trick-or-treaters that came to our house (and then I stole everything he "didn't need" or "wouldn't like". Just kidding, except I kinda did do that...but hey, that's my payment for taking him trick-or-treating, right?

"To Infinny Beeyon!"

As if you need cotton candy on Halloween?? There was someone with a cotton candy machine at trunk-or-treat (Thanks Mayfields).
We went to Grandma and Grandpa's house with cousins Tayson and Kamri to make spider cookies, caramel popcorn and other fun treats! Thanks Grandma!
Don't worry, I'm not letting a 2-year old and 5-year-old hold up my baby on the stairs (I'm laying down hiding actually holding him up. It was quite a challenge though).

1 month old!

I can't believe it has almost been 6 weeks since Jagger was born! Time flies! 2 kids has been much easier than I expected, and I am grateful for that (probably because my baby actually sleeps, and eats, and poops like all babies should, unlike when Jax was a baby). I am still sane!
He has been a good little baby and we just love him to pieces! But, don't get me wrong, we have our ridiculous moments when I have a screaming baby and a crazy, emotional, toddler (whose got quite an attitude-just like his mom, unfortunately), but I guess I still can't complain (only because today is not one of those ridiculous days). Anyway, here's a look at the first 6 weeks.
Jagger at 1 month:
11 lbs. 4.5ozs., 23 inches
Jaxson absolutely adores his brother (thank goodness)!

Now, what do you think? Do Jax and Jag look alike...

Introducing Jagger Tait McEwen

He's finally here! Baby Jagger was born on his due date, September 18th at 4:16 am. He weighed 9 lbs. 11 oz and was 21 inches long. We're so grateful everything went perfectly and our little boy is healthy and is such a sweet baby. Here I am pacing the floor in between contractions. Then came baby Jag.
Jaxson stayed the night and Grandma and Grandpa's house and came to meet his baby brother the next morning. He was sooo excited!
Brandon is such a good daddy. He loves his boys.
Sweet baby...we love you!

First day of school

So, I know that Jaxson is not quite 3, but I decided to put him in preschool this year anyway (more for the opportunity to be around other kids than anything). Yes, this may mean that he will attend preschool for like 9 years before kindergarten, but at least he should know his ABC's right? Anyway, today was his first day and he did great! It was almost sad how well he did, because he didn't miss me at all! I was so proud of him for what a big boy he was, and he think he's going to love it (especially since he has been telling every person he sees for the past 2 weeks that he's going to school). My little boy is getting so big!!

Only 2 weeks to go!

Boy oh boy am I about ready for this little guy to come out! I guess I can't complain too much because I still feel pretty good, but my ribs are so sore and ready to get him out! I'm just glad to finally be home from a summer of way too much traveling so that I could get things together.

Jaxson is so excited for his little brother to come (I hope it stays that way)! Did I mention that Jax was 2 weeks early...wishful thinking everyone!

Family Reunion #2

2 Reunions down, 1 to go. Last weekend we had my mom's family reunion in Packwood,WA (on my Birthday of course). Every other year, my mom's family reunion is planned on or near my birthday. But, although Brandon wasn't able to make it, I got to see lots of family that I haven't seen in awhile. We had fun seeing everyone and Jaxson loved another weekend surrounded by kids to play with!

Family Reunion #1

We got to have another fun trip to California to see family and kick off our 1st of 3 Family reunions this summer. It was so fun to see everybody and Jaxson was ecstatic to play with his cousins everyday!

I was so happy to see Jaxson excited about being around and holding his baby cousin, Elle. He adored her and is now more excited about holding his own baby brother. Yay!

We had a fun day at California Adventure! Jaxson was terrified at first to actually get next to Mickey and all of the other characters, but once we took a picture with Mickey, he couldn't get enough.

All the grandkids (except for Mae) with Grandma Lori.

Cousins riding the rhino at the wild animal park. Jaxson was in heaven getting to see all of the animals. He didn't stop talking about them for weeks.

Sparklers on the 4th of July!

Of course we had a great beach day. But the best part of it all is seeing the creepy guy in the speedo that is in our picture. Oh wait, that's my brother-in-law! We totally didn't know he was posing so nicely in the background. Hilarious! Thanks Sean, we're going to blow this picture up and put in in our family room!

Jaxson and cousin Gracie playing as we're packing up getting ready to go home. So cute!
On the plane ride home. Thanks Cameron and Cindy for all the planning for the reunion. We had such a blast and can't wait to see everyone again soon!

Time in Paradise

Well we finally returned from our wonderful time in Maui, back to the rain and reality. We had so much fun on our trip and can't wait to go back. Fortunately, Jaxson did really well (even on the plane), regardless of the 3 hour time difference. We tried to stay somewhat on Pacific time, which meant we woke up at like 5 and 6am (Hawaii time) each morning. But, it was actually really nice because our days seemed so much longer! We were able to walk across the street to the beach each morning and spent lots of time at the pool, and just relaxing too!

Oh the belly...ever growing!
We went to an awesome Ocean center Aquarium and Jax absolutely loved all of the fish and animals. (He still talks about fish, whales, and sharks everyday)
These sting rays were HUGE!
My favorite picture...he would just stare forever if he could.
Until next time...
