Three Year Photos June 2015

We decided to take Daxton's THREE Year Pictures a week before his 3rd Birthday. I had some ideas that I had found on pinterest and decided to go with the theme I chose. My sweet sister in law Amy took them Sunday night at 8pm the sun had just gone down in highland and it was breathtaking beautiful. We had Planes and a book for props. Dax was so happy smiley and at ease. He was being goofy and silly and doing what he always does with his priceless expressions. I love how animated he is. I love comparing photos from year's past and seeing how much he has grown. I can't believe how much he has changed in just a year. He went from a little boy to a big grown up boy. His smile and laugh melt my heart. These pictures turned out amazing. Until next year.

4th of July 2015

What a fun 4th of july Weekend we had this year. Friday Pre 4th of July fun we went to Seven Peaks Water park since we have season passes. We got there before they opened and we're some of the first people to get in. It was weird seeing it so empty but it was Early. Michelle and the girls came shortly after and we set up our stuff. John got a Cabana which I was forever grateful. It was HOT needless to say. We went in the wave pool a lot it was refreshing and relaxing just sitting there with the water sun and waves. Dad loved everything. He calls it the big wawa park itself adorable. We took him to the Kiddie park and that water is SO cold it feels amazing! It was so crowed by noon it was crazy. John and Dax only went on one slide because it was so crowed. The girls took Dax to get a snowcone we got pizza for lunch! I can't believe we we're there from 10-4:30! We came home napped showered went to the grocery store and relaxed!


  Our actual fourth of July was so relaxing. John put up the B board in McKenzie nursery it looks amazing.I cleaned the house and relaxed. Later we went and bought some groceries and fireworks. We had cereal for dinner so nice hahaha. We did fireworks outside our house Dax loved them! He kept saying again again and calling them his friends it was cute. Our neighborhood also set off illegal fireworks so that was fun to watch. We made yummy smores and enjoyed the night. We we're in bed by 10:30 so nice!


3 Year Old Little things July 2015

I can't believe Dax is 3!!! It literally blows my mind.
When people said that Dax would change from 2 1/2 to 3 I thought how much could he change? Well let me tell you!
Potty Training
He went from starting the potty training process at 2.5 not really knowing anything. We were both hesitant but went in full force the day after Easter and introduced Dax to big boy underwear! He loved wearing them and the first week was rough but I can happily say after 2-3 week's Dax was officially potty trained. He went without a timer he knew his body and when he needed to go. Its been 2 months and hes he's doing amazing so much that he wears underwear to bed and hasn't had a single accident! He always says Momma PEE or Potty train. He always wants me to watch him. He loves it and loves his Big Boy Underwear. I let him pick out his underwear everyday and he loves putting them on himself . He has been dry every night for 2 weeks. Just in Underwear. We are extremely blessed.
Big Boy Bed
We knew we wanted to give him a big boy bed by his 3rd birthday so we did in April. Little did we know he would LOVE it. It was definitely time to transition and he did amazing. He love's showing anyone that comes over his big boy bed it's absolutely adorable. He sleeps through the night he even will say sweet dreams it's nap time and take a nap. Yes he still takes naps lucky me. He usually takes them from 1-3 or 2-4. He definitely needs them otherwise he is crying whining and cranky. He loves going to bed and never fights us. Anyone that comes over Dax loves showing them his bed! His exact words are Come on do you want to see my Big Boy bed? It is weird to even think that we kept him in a crib for as long as we did.
ABC and 123...
A few months back John would start singing the alphabet with Dax every night. He would astart watching the leap frog ABC movies in January. He would recognize letters when we were put and about and say A B C etc we always started counting 123 for a few weeks and gradually we would count 1-10 while he was in the bath before bed or while he eats lunch. Now he can sing ABC song perfectly and can count to 10! He recognizes letters and numbers everywhere.  
He love's colors! He knows White, Red, Blue, Green, Pink, Purple, Orange, yellow, Gray. Basically all the colors of the rainbow.! Whenever we are out he will always tell us what colors he sees and what colors he is wearing. His Favorite colors are Blue and Green.
