RAISING A MIRACLE

RAISING A MIRACLE

I know its been a minute since I've check in here. Things have been ok...since I last posted we went to the OB (in April) for my sonogram to check for fibroids. My appointment was scheduled for the day after our Anniversary and the original day that we would've heard the baby's heartbeat. So many emotions, but we got through it! After a lengthy and not so comfy appointment, my Doctor did let me know that I do have fibroids, but they are not causing any issues or concerns. She encouraged us to wait to try again in 3 months- in her opinion, waiting this length of time would allow my body time to heal and regulate. No problem, we aren't in a rush! I know that God has a plan and He will open my womb to receive the blessing of a baby when its time. Soooo stay tuned, I believe that whatever God has next for is will be amazing!

In other news, Jaxson recently had a developmental evaluation: Battlle Developmental Inventory 2nd Edition.

NUBY TEETHABLE ADULT JEWELRY

Jaxson is in a stage where he loves to touch any and everything. His little mind is so inquisitive and he is constantly exploring his surroundings. His new thing is also climbing all over me and I finally understand the saying, "I'm a human jungle gym". I take it all in stride and wouldn't change it for the world. Although some days are tough, I'm just grateful my son CAN do all of that which he's doing.

He's reaching milestones at a rapid pace and becoming more of a big boy everyday. He recently cut 4 teeth and the molars are on their way in. Remember when I said he touches everything? Well that includes my jewelry. I use discretion on what kind of jewelry I wear because he likes to put it in his mouth. He will do whatever it takes to soothe his gums. I often feel bad telling him NO or STOP when he is tugging at my necklace or earrings. Sometimes chewing his pacifier and fingers don't completely satisfy him. So when I got the opportunity to try out Nuby's Teethable Jewelry, I hopped at the chance! Not only is it appealing and easily matches my wardrobe, its safe and satisfying for Jaxson. Prior to trying it out, I had never really been a fan of some of the teething jewelry on the market. However, seeing the designs that Nuby offered truly sparked interest. I would recommend this jewelry to the mom who wants to keep it cute while out and about with their little one. You won't have to worry about them putting something in their mouth that's filled with germs and its nice silicone will be so soothing to your little one. I can truly say that I appreciate Nuby and all they offer both mom and baby!

On the Move

On the Move

On Thanksgiving he decided to take his first unassisted steps! Talk about an amazing moment! It happened so fast that I wasn't able to get my camera recording fast enough. I did manage to eventually capture about 30 seconds on video and I have literally watched it almost a thousand times LOL. Yes, I am THAT mom. But I make no apologies for being overly excited and proud of my boy. He's conquered so much in his 17 months of life and seeing him reach milestones big and small just make me overjoyed. I've been trying to soak in all that's new with Jaxson and really take the time to make sure he feels special and give him the love and attention he needs.
