Past due for an update

Ok, SO I know it has been FOREVER since I last updated, but we've had quite a lot going on. Brandon accepted a job in Salt Lake City, UT so we are now living in Utah (in Lehi by Thanksgiving Point)! We moved in June and bought our house in August. I'll spare all of the details of our crazy summer, since we did a lot of things and had a ton of changes, but so far, everything is going well. We live in a neighborhood that has more kids than I've ever seen in my life! But, its good for my boys (I haven't decided if it's good for me or not yet since I can't keep Jax inside the house! He always wants to go play with friends outside, and of course Jagger wants to follow his older brother. But, they're happy so I can't complain. Anyway, I promise to be better about updating :-)
Here's a picture of our new house
My little Jagger turned 1 on September 18th! So big! He is such a blast!
Jaxson started preschool at a new school. He's in the ladybug class (which explains his getup).
Jaxson was a ninja for Halloween!! Cutest ninja I've ever seen!
Here's mu little ninja and puppy dog out trick-or-treating. We went with some friends who live around the corner from us and the kids were sprinting from door to door so after about 15-20 minutes Jaxson said his legs were tired and he needed to sit in the stroller. Shortly after, he had had enough so we called it a night!
Fun times! We're still adjusting to Utah and we certainly miss our family and friends in Washington, but overall we're doing well!

MASSIVE update!

Ok, so I have been terrible about updating my blog, sorry! But, we've had a lot going on lately. In a nutshell: Jaxson is a sunbeam in Primary at church (crazy!!!) and only has 1.5 weeks of preschool left. He has been such a sweet boy lately (thankfully...he was being super rotten for awhile and I was pretty close to selling him, but now he's like a little angel :-) Throughout the day he will be like "Mommy, I love you...and I love brother and daddy and I love myself! So cute! Not to mention that he says the funniest things, loving this age!
Jagger, who is 8 months old now, gave us a little scare for awhile because he was refusing to eat and wasn't gaining weight and actually dropped off of the weight chart because he was getting so skinny and had all these other issues (like a horrible cough, diarrhea for like a month-I know TMI, sorry-wheezing, and all sorts of fun stuff). But, we took him to a Pulmonary specialist in Seattle and come to find out his major prob was reflux! So, he's been on meds and doing MUCH better. He is such a happy little guy and is SO much fun. He is getting close to crawling now that he can tolerate being on his stomach for more than 5 seconds without screaming. He used to scoot himself backwards on his stomach across the entire room screaming. So, he's made progress.
The biggest news that happened lately is that we're moving back to Utah, and we are leaving in 1 month! It was kind of sudden, but Brandon has a wonderful job opportunity to start a business with his dad doing all different kinds of real estate deals. So, we are really excited for the opportunity, but it's definitely bittersweet because we're leaving all of our family and friends here in Tri-cities :-( We have our house up for sale and have already started packing so it's starting to become a little more real! But, if someone would come buy our house, it would make things a lot easier, so hurry and come buy it! Anyway, that's what is happening here! Things are going well, but a little crazy!On a side note, one of my best friends, Chelsea Davis, of Chelsea Rose Photography, is an amazing photographer and she took some family pics for us and I LOVE them!!! But, here are a few that she took!

Christmastime and a 3 year old

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! We were quite busy between Christmas, a birthday the day after, and then a trip to Utah the day after that. We finally got home on New Years Day, only to be celebrating the Wagar Christmas with my dad's family.
We were lucky enough to get to go to Utah to see Brandon's family, and all 8 McEwen kids and their families and Grandmas Lori and Nino all got to stay under one roof thanks to Autumn and Allie and their Minute to Win it earnings! Thanks guys, we had soo much fun and love you all to pieces!
There was more snow than I've ever seen in my life!
Jaxson J turned 3 years old the day after Christmas His cake is supposed to be a whale...however I envisioned it better in my head.Jagger Tait is 3.5 months old already! So happy (if he's held all day long) and unfortunately still sick after a week on the nebulizer and a week of antibiotics :-(
But we made it through the chaos, had a blast along the way, and we wish you all a wonderful 2011!!

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...
