Thoughts from Jaden!

To Mommy's readers:

These last 3 weeks have been memorable for sure!  I met my Grandpa and Grandma Cox and Uncle Nathan and LOVED them!  I met Mommy's good friend Erin and her fiance Jeff at this really amazing burger joint-Red Robin.  Mommy thinks they have some pretty muffins burgers!  (Daddy says that "muffins" is the new "awesome") I am loving bath time more and more and can't wait until I can splash and splash and splash some more!  Aunt Kara and Uncle Adam got me this Winnie-the-Pooh robe that Mommy puts me in after every bath!  I look stellar!  I smile now and Mommy says I've got one killer smile!  I smiled for Daddy first on January 27th and for Mommy on the 28th-they love it when I smile!

I overheard Mommy tell Daddy I am growing up so fast!  Then she said something about taking pictures of me and before I knew it, she was doing a photo shoot of me.  Outfit after outfit after outfit-it seemed like it would never end.  Daddy kept telling me "Mommy's crazy" and I think that maybe I agree!  She said it was all because I was going to outgrow all these "cute" outfits!  O Mommy!

I nap in my bed now-Mommy made me learn.  The first day was a very hard day-I cried and cried and cried.  I overwhelmed Mommy that day-she said I only napped an hour and a half the whole day!  But now I'm pretty good at falling asleep in my bed for all my naps and for bedtime.  I'm still trying to get the hang of sleeping through the night-I am still going about 5 to 6 hour stretches.  I'll get there!

We had a blizzard here in Kansas City this week.  Mommy got scared because our power went out-I got to sleep next to Daddy that night so I was ok with the blizzard.  The power came back on and Mommy moved me to my bed but I still got to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's room!  And the best part about it-Daddy got to be home for 2 days this week from work!  It was MUFFINS!

Well-here are some recent pictures of me-including the ones Mommy took of my "photo shoot."  Enjoy looking at pictures of me!  Mommy says I can write my thoughts on here every once in a while, so I guess until next time...

Thanks for the robe Aunt Kara and Uncle Adam-I love the little slippers!
Daddy can get me to smile really well!  He was tickling me here-I am really ticklish under my armpits!
Me smiling for Mommy
My first photo shoot outfit
Another outfit
Another outfit-by this point I really caught on to Mommy's plan-I wasn't very happy but Daddy got a picture before I got too grumpy!  Aunt Sylvia gave me this hat-I look pretty cute in it (at least that's what Mommy says)
This was my first Christmas outfit.  I look pretty handsome-don't ya think?
Look at these muffins pants!  I love them!  Thanks Aunt Kara!


  1. hello! he is just adorable! love the photo shoot. He is muffins for sure!

  2. Love the photos, Jaden! But are you sure your daddy didn't write this post?

  3. We made the blog!!!!! :) Loved the update. Jaden is so super smart to communicate so well.

  4. Annie and Chris...Jaden is a CUTIE! I can't wait for him to be old enough to play with Nella. Nella is having her first birthday on Easter Sunday, April 24th. Easter falls on April 24th only a few rare times...last time in 1859 and the next time in 2095 when she is 85. So we are having an Easter celebration and first birthday party. I know you probably can't make it but just in case...we will be celebrating at our house at the lake. Easter Egg hunt, grilling out, and cake! Miss you guys...can't wait to hold Jaden. I was so sick at Christmas, but am much better now. Jaden looks real snuggly. Love Ya, Kristi

  5. The one with the hat totally looks like a GQ pose.
