What we've been up to!

Well it has obviously been a while since I have updated this thing! It is safe to say that we have been busy with the little one and we wouldn't have it any other way! Jack is growing up way too fast and I seriously wish I could push a pause button so that he will stay my little boy forever!! He has the goofiest personality and is such a joy to have in our house. We are so happy to call him ours! He has us wrapped around his little finger and he knows it! In the past few months Jack was blessed by his daddy, he had his first Thanksgiving and Christmas, his first trip to Disneyland, and is now a week shy of being five months old!!! Where does time go! We are staying busy with work and being parents but enjoying every second of it!
                           He used to be so little!
                     Ready for his first Christmas!

Family visits, Halloween, and random!

Time is seriously flying by now that Jack is here! How do I already have a little one month old?! Can he please stay little forever. Well the month of October my parents came to visit to meet baby Jack and I think it is safe to say they were in love with this little boy just like we are. We were able to spend time visiting, going to the aquarium, and enjoyed Halloween festivities with Tadd's family. It was so nice to have them come visit and I guess it is our turn to go visit in freezing Utah within this next month. For Halloween we didn't really dress up this year, he was just too little so we stuck with a pumpkin onesie and spider onesie. I am sure we will go all out next year when he is bigger. It sure is fun having our own little family during the holiday seasons, I can't wait to start our own little traditions:) Not much else is going on just enjoying every minute of having baby Jack in our life. He seriously is our everything and we wouldn't have it any other way! He definitely has us wrapped around his little finger!:)
Mom, Dad, and baby Jack!

                                           Our little pumpkin:)

                           Like father, like son! So worn out from the day!

                             I am one month old, how did this happen?
                                              Bath time!
                                 No one is taking this binkie from Jack!

The day are lives forever changed...

You never know how much you can truly love someone until you have a child of your own and we got to experience that feeling for the first time when we welcomed our sweet little boy Jack Carter Jones into this world on October 13, 2012 @ 4:30 pm. 7lbs 3oz and 20 inches long. So perfect! He is our whole world and I wouldn't have it any other way! We are smitten and he is the sweetest little boy ever. Everything he does is a first for us new parents and I may be a little paranoid about everything. Tadd always says, "Melissa our child does not need to live in a bubble, he will be fine"..haha it's true I am learning. I love watching Tadd with Jack, he is the best father and cannot wait to come home to us and to lay with Jack, it is the sweetest! I truly have the best two boys in my life:) Our lives our forever changed for the better and I count my blessings each and every day for our little family of three!! 

                                          Just waiting!
                               Tadd of course passed out while wait ha
                                         Sweet baby Jack!

                                             My cute boys!
                                        Love his sweet little face!

                                            Mohawk time:)
Going out for doctor checkups!

So maybe it is time to finally update this blog, it has been forever and so much has changed since last time I was on. Well we moved to Arizona and are all settled in our new little place, which we absolutely love! We are both just working and trying to figure out our next step with school and such. AND are sweet baby boy will be here in like 5 weeks!! I can't believe we only have five more weeks until little Jack gets here. We started to put his room and stroller together, and things up on the wall which is making everything seem so real now. It is crazy how much our lives are going to change in a blink of an eye, but we are so ready for this new chapter in our lives. As for now we are just trying to enjoy our time we have together as a family of two and waiting for the arrival of the little one:)
34 weeks, going on 35!!
