Happy Birthday Jax!

Today Jax turned one!

It has been a bittersweet day for me.  Of course I am excited to celebrate my sweet little baby boy, but I have also been so sad that he is already a whole year old.  Last night I was rocking him to sleep and just bawled in the rocking chair holding him.  I was so sad that he is growing up so fast.  Then, I started feeling bad that I was already having another baby and won't just be able to give him all my attention.  That made the crying even worse.  Then, it all happened again today.  It has been a rough birthday.

This last year has been wonderful.  Jax has made our lives so happy.  I love being a mom so much, and this cute little dude could not be any sweeter.  I don't think you can explain a parent's love.  It is so much deeper than I ever imagined.  This little boy is in my every thought.  My life is lived to take care of him (and his dad).  
This morning I made Jax pancakes.  I tried to make him a pancake that was shaped like a one...turns out he got a BURNT pancake that actually looks like a TWO!!!  Oops...hopefully it is the thought that counts on this one.  He looks happy enough though.

Jax is opening a present from my mom.  She also got this "Happy Birthday" headband for him to wear - which he wore all night long and didn't even care!

Jax really seemed to like his new bouncing zebra.
I love this picture!!  Char got on the zebra for a ride and when Jax tried to push her off she gave him a dirty look.  I love it!
Presents, presents, presents!  Jax's grandma and grandpa and aunts and uncles sure spoiled him.  He does, however, look a little uncomfortable in his new hat! :)
