Um, Utah? Really?

So, we moved. This time, for good(ish). At least, we will be here longer than just a few months. Jon and I are so OVER the summer sales life. Lucky for us, Jon was offered an amazing job working for Pinnacle's corporate office. He gets full benefits, gets weekends and evenings off, pretty much can work the hours he wants and best of all, WE DONT HAVE TO MOVE AWAY IN A FEW MONTHS!!!!
The crazy part is, we now live in Utah. So weird. Jon and I always, always said we would never live in Utah but we seriously and honestly have loved every day we've been here. Its been about 6 weeks now and a day hasn't gone by that we haven't said out loud to each other how happy we are here.
We have been staying in South Jordan at my grandparents house. They were away for the first 4 1/2 weeks and we happily filled the position of "house sitter" and "plant water-er". On Friday, we are moving into our own place in Pleasant Grove, just 7 minutes away from Jon's office. I am SO excited to be so close and to spend Jon's 1-hour lunch with him AT HOME every day!
The weather has been absolutely beautiful. We've done a lot of fun things outdoors and I will post about all that soon. Oh, I hear it gets cold here some times in the winter months and that it even snows a time or two? Does anyone know if that's true? Haha, Jon keeps saying he worries when I tell him I'm "freezing" and its 65 degrees out. WISH ME LUCK!!!

10 Months Old!

Hi everyone! Its me, Paxton! (I know, Im cheesy and dumb). Anyway, I just wanted to bring everyone up to speed on what Im up to these days. Well, Im 10 months old! I started crawling about a week shy of 9 months. I started out wobbly and slow but now I can make it all the way to the stairs by the time mom turns around. She's still faster than me so I havent been able to make it downstairs yet- Im working on that :)

I have a crazy appetite for baby food now. Im only breastfeeding about 3 times a day now and Im eating lots and lots of jars of fruits, veggies and meat. Mom and Dad keep saying something about "going broke" over me, but I dont know what they mean.

I was waking up a LOT during the night up until this last week. Now I let m&d sleep through most of the night. Mom gets up about 4 to feed me, then Im back asleep until 7am.
I have 6 teeth now. 4 on bottom, and 2 on top. I think I might be getting more though because Ive been a bit cranky. I LOVE Tylenol though and that makes the hurts go away.

I stood up by myself today! Ive been super scared to try, but I did it and now I cant stop!
I love, love, LOVE my daddy. My favorite time of the day is any time that he wrestles around with me. I get so excited when I see him that I squeal with delight.

I discovered animals this month. I usually dont laugh much but I am rolling with giggles when ever I am near a dog or horse or goat.

Well, thats all for now. I'll turn the blogging back over to mommy!

A Vist to AZ

In August, I flew home from Memphis with Shelly to visit for a few days. Poor Jon had to stay in the sticky heat and keep working by himself.....
I didnt get too many pictures but I thought I should post the few that I got. Pax had so much fun being oogled and held by everyone. Lets just say I had fun readjusting him to not being held all the time :)

He got to play with his jeep that had been in storage for the past few months and had fun playing with Grandma's toys.

The best part though, was watching Aedan interact with Paxton. He was a bit, uh, fast moving, for Pax but after a few times playing together, Aedan was sitting and playing and even sharing the toys with Paxton. SO cute. It was so fun to finally get to see them playing together.
Man, I miss being around all the family in Arizona. We canNOT wait to go visit for Thanksgiving. Mmmmmm, turkey....... I think my mouth will has a steady stream of drool for the next two months. BTW, I LOVE fall and Im so excited thats its upon us!
