A Comparison

At (approximately) 2 months:



and Jaxon

Merry Christmas!
from Jaxon.
(And the rest of us.)

(Adorably embarrassing Christmas outfit courtesy of Grandma Reber.)

So, Ty didn't have a blanket when he put Jaxon down.
Turns out that laundry works just as well.
(Don't worry. It was clean.)

So it turns out that this one:

is not having a hard time being a big brother.
At all.
In fact, he really loves it.

He would hold "baby Jaxon" all day if we let him.
And he's incredibly helpful.
And super sweet.

And that makes me very, very happy.
This one:

has figured out that if you can fake sick until the bus leaves you get to stay home all day.

Between that discovery and several days of actually being sick, he's missed quite a lot of school in the past few weeks.

I'm doing my best to make sure that staying home is no fun.
(No computer, no friends, no playing outside)
So far it just makes for a really complain-y fake-sicko.
I'm really glad Christmas Break is almost here.

I like to call this series,

"Sure I'll smile, mom. Just not while that thing is in my face."

Though he did eventually give in.

P.S. I'm just going to go ahead and pretend it hasn't been 2 months since I last posted.
