Our New Boy!

Our Jaxton Cohl was born June 12th---9 pounds 11 ounces, 23 inches long. He was in the NICU for the first 2 weeks, because his lungs never opened up to allow gas exchange. He drove the nurses crazy while he was there, but they all loved taking care of him! He is doing just perfectly now, and his Dr. says he is very advanced physically, developmentally, and socially. He is so dang cute! His Mom & Dad absolutely cannot get enough of him!!! He has so much personality, and a smile to die for, not to mention he has the cutest, face, head, and body in the world! So, we are back to poopy diapers, formula, and all the baby parafanelia, but hey---he sleeps 11 hrs at night, so we can handle the rest. No really, he is absolutely HEAVEN!!!! I would venture to say that he is almost as much in love with his mom as she with him. There is nothing better!!! I love the way he looks at me, and goes crazy when he sees me. He has such a cute fauxhawk on the top of his cute round head. He has already had his "hawk" trimmed, since it was so long. I could snuggle him all day, except that he is a burley 16 pounds now & almost 27 inches long, which is not easy on my back! He is at an advantage for grabbing with his long monkey arms. The other day I walked past my dresser with him. He reached out, grabbed a bottle of fingernail polish, and put it right into his mouth. He also pulled the sacrament water tray down on to my dress at church. He is 4 months old now, and I am still enjoying every minute! I love that boy!!!!!!!!
