Newborn Photoshoot

We had these amazing pictures taken by Mandy Baker when Daxon was 6 days old. We were so happy with them!

Daxon Thomas Jensen

It has been forever since my last post. Since then we have grown in numbers and are now a family of 4! We welcomed little Daxon to our family March 11th at 1:05 am. He weighed in at 6 pounds 12 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. It feels like he has been a part of our family forever...we love him to pieces!!
We were so surprised to see so much hair when he was born...considering Cohen didn't get a full head of hair till he was 2! Daxon has since lost it all, but it is slowly starting to grow back. Daxon is such a good baby, we are so lucky! I could probably count on one hand the amount of cranky days he has had(knock on wood). Life is definitely busier with 2 kids, but I think we've adjusted pretty well. Cohen sure loves his little brother and is really good with him. He looks for him the minute he wakes up and loves to make him laugh. We just love having this little guy in our family!
Here's a few pictures at the hospital and heading home.

Cohen turns 2!

I cannot believe Cohen is 2 years old, he still feels like my little baby! As excited as I am to have baby #2 in a few weeks, I can't help but feel a little sad knowing Cohen will no longer be the baby of the family.
Cohen is such a funny little guy, he has such a sweet personality and a great sense of humor! There are so many things I want to remember about this crazy 2 year old :)

-He is very independent, always trying to do everything by himself. He is constantly telling us to "go" (go away) if he doesn't want our help
-He has recently decided he likes to pee on the potty, I'm definitely not ready to potty train though!
-He is becoming a little chatter box! He is adding new words to his vocabulary everyday, but still speaks really good gibberish! My absolute favorite is when he says "Love you"
-He is very generous with kisses and hugs! I sure hope he stays that way :)
-He loves to wrestle, run around and be tickled...especially by his dad!
-His favorite TV show is Dora and would probably watch it all day if I let him.
-He is a great little helper. He always puts his dirty clothes in the hamper. Brings me the phone when it rings(even when I'm in the shower). I can't do anything in the kitchen without him dragging a chair over to help.
-He has a very big sweet tooth just like his parents.
-It took him till he was 18 months, but he is now a great napper. I can usually get 2-3 hours in the afternoon(I'm really hoping that sticks when the baby comes)

We just can't get enough of this boy...we love him to pieces! Here's to hoping the terrible 2's stay away for ever!

He's getting so big!

Feeling a little guilty??

Patiently waiting for his cake

Present time!

I know, I know...Halloween was months ago, but I am very behind!
We carved a pumpkin with Cohen, but he wanted nothing to do with the gooey stuff inside. He loved the pumpkin when it was all done and lit up with a candle though!

We went to Marcus' Halloween themed birthday party that Friday. Everyone got all dressed up and had a great time! Cohen sported 2 Halloween costumes this year. The first one was for Marcus' party. Drew says it was cruel for me to make my little boy wear a pink poodle costume, but I thought it was pretty funny! Hopefully Cohen will forgive me :) We put his real costume on the next day for trick or treating and he made a really cute shark!

Summer...we miss you!

I failed big time at getting caught up by Christmas, but better late than never! Mat is back in Medicine Hat for the next 8 weeks finishing his last year of school. I am so excited for him to finally be done! My nights are pretty uneventful once Cohen goes to bed, so time to catch up on the blog!

We had a great summer even if it was way too short! We had a lot of rain this summer, and there was never a lack of wind in Lethbridge. But we tried to take advantage of the nice days we did get.

We spent a lot of time out at the pool.

We made it down to Echo Lake a few times this summer. We love it there and Cohen had so much fun trying to keep up with all his cousins!

He actually wanted to get in the lake with us!

Fun in the tub??

Cohen leaned a little too far over the edge of the tub as it was filling up...oops! Those toys in the tub were just too tempting...he had to have them! He was so not impressed...that may have had something to do with me grabbing the camera before I grabbed him :)
