Look at all those presents!! He got a cute John Deere outfit from Grandma and Grandpa May, a couple of cute shirts from FL from his Aunt Lacey and Uncle Todd, a Batmobile from Aunt Kalei, and a totally cute John Deere quilt from Aunt Leisel.
And since he is so fond of blankies, I even attempted to make him a quilt. It was the first sewing project I did (mostly) by myself. (I had a little help from Jaxon's Grandma May!)
And then, of course, he got TONS of toy tractors from us and his Great-Grandma Gruwell.
I even made him a birthday cake! (I thought it turned out pretty well for my first decorating experience.)
Shane even got his first experience putting together a toy. The Hogans got him a little car he could ride around in and it required assembly. But Jaxon absolutely loves it and hates when we take him out of it!
Overall, Jaxon's 1st birthday party was a smashing success! Thanks to everyone for their sweet presents and for making Jaxon's 1st birthday so special!
They took his measurements and he is 30 inches long and weighs 20 lbs 14 oz. His weight turned out to only be in the 22 percentile! This is crazy because he has always seemed like such a big kid. He must just be getting skinnier from all that crawling around. I totally miss his baby fat! He had the cutest rolls and they are almost gone! I hate this growing up stuff!
Thanks so much for all hard work, Mom and Dad! And thanks to everyone else who helped give our house a much needed "facelift"!
