Jaxon's Smiling!

Doesn't he look like a concerned politician in this picture? Or maybe a barber shop singer... You decide.
Mom and Dad got Jaxon this cute church outfit. We were going to wait until Christmas to put it on him, but we just couldn't stand to wait that long. You can't really see it in the picture, but he was wearing a little tie. So cute!

This was a joyous occassion... Jaxon actually fell asleep in his chair rather than our arms!


This was the best picture I could get of Jax's smile... sometimes it is really big... and cute. :)

So, about twelve days ago we had a new development in the Anderson household... that's right, Jaxon started to smile!! Chad and I now spend the majority of our day speaking in REALLY high voices and pulling faces just to see our sweet baby smile at us. It's the best entertainment we've had all year! And within the last few days he has also given us a slight sound whenever he smiles. Is it indigestion? NO! We are calling it a giggle, even if the sounds more like an Ewak (spelling? you know from Star Wars...) than an actual laugh.

Plus, the really good news... Jaxon has started to let us put him down. Two days ago he even fell asleep in his chair! This is huge, because he NEVER falls asleep anywhere except our arms. We took a picture to commemorate the event and the flash woke him up... opps. Next time I'll just take a mental picture.

Megs- I'm in. When are you going to be in So Jo? I'd LOVE to see you and meet the little one. But beware, Luke will be interested in Jaxon :)
