Jaxson and Noah

Just a few updates on the boys. They really have become buddies and friends. Just the other morning Noah melted my heart when he brought Jaxson a car and said, "let's race." That's when I realized Jaxson is now old enough to "play" with Noah. Before they would play near each other or Noah would help Jaxson with some task but now he wants to play with him. I really hope that they stay friends and rely on each other trough out life.

Now for the personal updates:

Jaxson is 19 months old. He is starting to say more and more. He almost learns a word a day. Some of his favorite words are: drink, snack, Dada, Mama. He LOVES to eat. He will pretty much eat anything but lunch meat. Some of his favorite foods are: yogurt, pizza, crackers and peanut butter. He loves to dance and listen/dance to music. He loves dogs so his favorite movie is 101 dalmatians, he doesn't sit through the entire thing but he listens to it while playing and he stops at his favorite parts to watch. He loves the Cruel Devil song. Jaxson has a temper so if something doesn't go his way or we aren't understanding what he wants he throws himself on the ground and cries. Noah will say "temper, temper" or "temper tantrum" while he's doing it. Otherwise, he is pretty happy. I call him my buddy because we do everything together, especially while Noah's at school. And regarding his beautiful golden locks, Kevin and I are loving his hair and how light it is so we are letting it grow. When he gets out of the bath or as it gets dirty he has the cutest curls ever. I think this may be the only time it will be long so what the heck.

Noah is 4 1/2 years old. He is already talking about his 5th birthday and what we are going to do. He really wants to go to Disneyland and have a party, so that's what we are going to do. I cannot believe he's going to be 5, I now know the old saying is true, "time flies when you're having fun." We have had so much fun with him in the last 5 years. Anyhow, Noah is sweet and super funny, he loves Toy Story 1,2 and 3 and anything associated with the movie. In the last year, he has really been fascinated with bugs. He loves to read about them, look for them and ask tons of questions about them. He is still a SUPER picky eater and not interested in trying anything new. He is patient and actually won the patience award at school. He loves school and learning and would go everyday if we let him (he goes 3 days a week). He's such a good natured boy.


We also got Knotts passes in December of '10. My Gramma got them for us for Christmas. They work a bit different then Disneyland passes. The Knotts passes are for a calendar year Jan - Dec (not to mention a ton cheaper than Disneyland passes) so we got them in December, which is kind of considered a free month since you should really start out the passes in Jan and use them through Dec. For those of you that don't know Disneyland passes start the day you use it for the first time and run for an entire year, despite the day you start them, so for example if you buy them on April 7 they are good until the following April 7. Enough for the pass lesson, we love Knotts because we have NEVER been on a crowded day. Literally, the workers are waiting for the kids to walk up and go on the rides. Most of the time, they ride by themselves. It's been great on days when I don't have anyone to meet up with because it's less crowded, I can keep a close eye on both of them and we can do our own thing and not worry about lines. Also, all the kids rides are in one area, "Camp Snoopy," so we aren't running all over the park to go on rides. Noah's favorite rides are the cars and the camp bus. I think Jaxson likes the cars and the train.


We got Disneyland passes for Christmas and we have been loving them. Noah got an autograph book on the first trip we made with our passes and we have been on a character hunt ever since. On a few trips to the happiest place on earth, all we have done, for the most part, is get autographs. You'll notice Jaxson isn't in any character pictures except for the nonmoving, nontalking Lighting McQueen and Mater picture. He's not loving the characters yet but I'm sure he will soon. He follows Noah everywhere and I'm sure he will soon follow him to the characters.
