|Four Days Old - Bonding time with Daddy|
This first one didn't come out quite the way we had hoped. It was a Pinterest-inspired shot that could have really been cute, but the lighting wasn't great and we couldn't get the right angle or cooperation from Jaxon. Hee hee...
Gavin continued to be a big help and really adored holding Jaxon. It was so cute to see my little Gavin growing into such a helpful and loving big brother. We are such proud parents!
Giving Jaxon his bath brought back memories of all the wonderful "spa times" we had with Gavin. Jaxon looked so tiny in his tub, but he sure outgrew it quickly!
I used to love taking pictures of Gavin as he slept, but Jaxon was much more sensitive to the flash and would frown every time I snapped his picture when he was sleeping.

|One week + one day old|
|12 days old: A bit blurry without the flash, but I love this adorable smile!|
|2 weeks + 1 day|

|Meeting Grandma B for the first time|

|3 weeks old!|
|Attempt two, still not great...|
Gavin wore newborn clothing for the first 3 months of his life, so I bought tons of adorable newborn outfits for Jaxon thinking that he would be the same way. Unfortunately, I was wrong. He stretched out of the newborn size by the end of his first month and I was quickly trying to put all of the cute things on him before they wouldn't fit him anymore. Some things (such as the cute little outfit in this photo) were just put on him for a photo op and were never able to be worn again. *sniff, sniff*

My sweet Jax,
You have melted our hearts this first month and we are so incredibly happy to have two sweet little boys. Here are a few things you have already learned to do in the short time you have been on this earth:
- You are extremely strong and can already lift your head up when laying on your tummy.
- You are learning how to focus when looking at faces.
- You experienced your first bath and it went pretty well.
- You are waking up every 2 hours at night, but hopefully this won't last too long!
We love so very much, Jax! You have brought us tremendous joy this past month and filled our hearts with so much love. I never realized that I could fall so completely in love with two sweet little boys, but I have! I have such an amazing and unconditional love for both of my sweet boys. My heart is so full and so happy!
We love you to pieces!
