Today, Jax is 9 months old. I can't believe it. When I think about the last 9 months, I can't help but smile. Oh, how my life changed 18 months ago.
I can still remember the day perfectly that I found out I was pregnant. Just before I took the pregnancy test, Chase voiced his doubts about it. He didn't think I was pregnant. I pretty much cried wolf, I guess you could say, and took pregnancy tests quite often. But, I kinda felt like this time I had a chance...and I was right! Chase about died when I showed him the positive sign. He was speechless - literally. We said we weren't going to tell anyone for 3 months. But, by the next morning, everyone we had ever known knew. Now, we couldn't be happier to have baby Jax in our home.
9 months old is a pretty crazy time. You can't turn your head for 10 seconds. This little man is a full-time job, that is for sure. Now that he is a master crawler and pulls himself up to everything (toilets included), I have to keep a close eye on him if I don't want to go to the emergency room. I didn't realize how active a baby could be.
In the last 9 months I think my heart has grown 100 times. I don't think you understand the unconditional love you can have for your child until you become a parent - not to mention how my love for Chase has grown watching him become a dad.
Oh baby Jax, these last 9 months have been much more enjoyable than the 9 months before when I carried you in my belly. :)
