3 Months and other stuff

My baby is getting so big. He is changing so much.

Just thought I would throw in a comparison picture of my kids. I'd ask who is who, but Jaxon's onesie gives it away. But can you believe how much my kids look alike? And yes they look just like their daddy.

This is what Jaxon is doing at 3 months:
  • coos and talks a lot
  • laughs and giggles
  • slobbers a ton (soaks his clothes and mine)
  • has started teething (just like Naomi did)
  • scoots around on his back and his tummy
  • grabs at things, starting to poke at his toys
  • weighs about 15lbs and wears 6 month clothes
  • pretty sure he knows his name because he turns his head when I say it
  • loves being outside
Proof of his scooting.

This is what else we've been up to.

I won a beanie from a blog giveaway, the blog is Get Your Craft On. I was so excited to get a new beanie for Jaxon. It looks so cute on him. Naomi likes to wear it too.

Taking naps with daddy.

Going for walks in the double jogging stroller (yay for cooler weather).

Playing with friends.

Doing housework of course. Naomi loves clearing the dishwasher. She has now started sorting the silverware before putting it away. It's cute...and a little OCD. Love my Naomi!

And of course getting ready for Halloween.

More Halloween Pictures to come after this weekend.

Happy Halloween!!

P.S. Here are my Win It Forward Winners:

I've decided what I'm making for all of you. But I have a question for you ladies if you could respond in the comments section. What is the color scheme in your home? This will help me to complete the project.

Win It Forward

It was over a year ago that I got lucky and won something on a friend's blog, but I totally forgot to pass it forward with moving around and all. So after a lovely reminder email, I am now going to pass on my good fortune. As she (my gift giver Michelle) stated that this good fortune included some of her favorite things, they are mine too and include: handmade goods, creativity, and gift-giving.

Here are the tagging instructions: The first 3 people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done by February 2012 {this is because I'm a busy mom, you understand ;) }
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something unusual.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must re-post this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. OR, since I know there are some people who read my blog who don't have a blog of their own, you can win if you are willing to make something for three random people. The first 3 people to leave a comment telling me they will win it forward get a fabulous homemade gift by me! Oh, and if you have a blog, be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it (by the end of the year my picture will be up.)
