The fastest 5 Months Ever...

... And a whoppin' 18 pounds!! 

(The other kids didn't reach that mark of weight until: 
                             
                       *9 ½ months (Spencer)
                 *18 months (Kaylea)
                    *8 ½ months (Daylan)
              *5 months (Jaxson)

(The good thing is I think that my kids all stay about 18 pounds for quite a while as they lengthen out & metabolize faster with crawling & walking.....so hopefully Mr. J will be slowing down in the near future.) 


Dear Jaxson,

Please stop growing up so fast!
Stay this age forever...
....Sad Story: A couple weeks ago you were really sick & lethargic with a high fever of 103 & had trouble breathing. It scared Mommy and we took you to the Hospital. Your chest x-ray looked good but within a day you were developing Bronchitis & your lungs rattled when you breathed. We did breathing treatments. That helped a little bit, but it was still too scary enough to where you ended up needing antibiotics. You are all better now thanks to the unceasing prayers of your siblings.
Recent Hobbies:

*You Play in the Exersaucer more now that you can actually use your hands to play with the toys.

*You scoot by doing the "Frog Leap" & on the verge of full on Crawling!!

*You eat your toes like they're candy.

*Get constant loves from your brothers & sister...mom & dad too.

So, so sweet! Won't be long and that little (or should I say big) guy will be all over the place. Yay for big babies! All the more to love.
I hope he's recovered from all that yucky sickness. Prayers from sibling (and daddy and mommy) are so powerful!

The further down the kid line they are it seems the faster they grow! Maybe it's because we as mom's appreciate everything a bit more since we know it won't last forever...good and bad included. I can't believe little Jax is almost crawling! He's gonna keep you busy girlie!

Got to love big fat babies. I just looked back at Perry's stats. I didn't have any for her 5 month so I went back to 4. At 4 months she was 17 lbs. 10 oz. So almost 18. I love having a chunk to squeeze. Except when I have to carry her for a long time! I can't believe how fast it goes. I wish it would just slow down a bit. He's sure cute. I'm sure he'll slow down in a few months. I think Perry is starting to. Isn't fun how much the older kids love these babies? Mine can't get enough of her and think she's the best.
