Welcome Home Hadleigh

Jaxon's friend's Hadleigh came over to see him on Saturday night, after she had been away to Florida to go and see Mickey. We got to hear all but her trip, and who all she seen, and what she did while she was away.
I love to get these kids together. It is amazing everything we get together, which sometimes is on a weekly basis, how much they have developed or changed in the short period of time that we don't see them.
We are missing one little one in the picture, Jazlin, but she was not able to make it.
I am sure that there will be many of tiffs between these little friends, but the moments that they love each other are priceless.

LOVES it Outside

My little man has shown us that he loves the outdoors. He does not want to come in for supper, for a nap, for bedtime...not for anything.
It could be a long summer.(his dad cut off a hockey stick for him last week so that he can have a 'real' stick for road hockey this summer)

1st Birthday Party

Saturday was Miss Jazlin's 1st Birthday party with all of her friends...and here are some pictures of the big day.....Jaxon gave Jazlin her birthday present from his Auntie Cara for her to open as soon as he got there....he could not wait to see what she got her!!!Little Miss Jazlin a.k.a. porkchop will eat just about anything, and as much of it as she can get her hands there was a good spread of food that she shared with her guests!!!The kids got new sunglasses in their treat bags from the party, and here is Hadleigh modeling hers.
After things had wound down, the kids decided to have a tea party together once they got their jammies on. Tea and then to bed.
It is so hard to believe that these 3 hare getting as old as they are. Where had the time gone???

When Jaxon was a baby he pretty much was perfect. Slept through the night from 8 weeks old, hardly ever cried unless there was something seriously wrong, and generally was the most content little boy that a parent could ask for. I was very fortunate as a first time mom to have such a wonderful little boy, and everyone used to comment on how I was going to pay some day for having the perfect baby.
Well, I think that time has come. My perfect little baby has become a raging toddler.
We have been having a little bit of a biting issue in the past couple of weeks. It started a couple of months ago, but was contained to him biting me or his dad. In the past couple of weeks we have had a few more issues evolve with the babysitter, his auntie Cara and now the little girl at the sitters as well.
When it has been an adult we have been able to scold him for his actions, but it really has not hurt us for the wear. Know that we are getting into biting other kids it is really something that we have to start to nip in the but. I don't know which is worse, being the bitters mother, or the bitties mother. My heart breaks for this little girl that my child has harmed, and I feel so sorry that my son did that to her.
So...I have tired the time out strategy...not working. We have tried the taking of privileges away from him...not working. We have tried the punishing...not working. Someone has suggested soap in the mouth, but the little monster will take the soap and eat it for enjoyment, so what kind of punishment is that.
My final resort was Tabasco sauce. I had had a few people recommend it, and I was at my wits end this weekend and decided that was going to be the punishment if it happened. Well last Sunday morning it had to come out when he bit me. He only got a little dab of it on his lips, really did not like it, but really did not seem to bother him. Later on the in the day it took a chomp out of his auntie Cara, so the bottle came out again, only this time it went straight in the mouth, and the bottle was shook a few times. He certainly got a taste of it this time, and for a long time after it he was pulling at his tong for quite some time.
Well, I am happy to report that last week was the best week we have had at the babysitter, and there does not seem to be any signs of biting. I am knocking on wood with this comment, but hopefully this little issue is behind us!!!
