Jaxon's BIRTHDAY!! Our Jaxon turned 5 yesterday and so, of course, I need to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and post some pix for our family.
He had an AMAZING day, and when we got up for CHURCH this morning, Jaxon thought he had it made. I asked him to get dressed and he said, "but, Birthday Boys don't have to go to church!" Too bad his birthday was YESTERDAY!!! (He almost had me) If you have yet to meet our Jaxon, or don't know much about him... you need to get to know him.
Click on the Jaxonism Label.. You WON'T be disappointed!
Jaxon has presented us with MANY challenges in life, but also some wonderful blessings. Recently we have decided to put him on a GFCF diet. Don't know what that is? Ugh... I will TELL you what it is.. He can't eat ANYTHING! GFCF is Gluten Free, Casein Free and it proves to be very helpful with Autistic Children. Just so you know, there is Gluten in almost EVERYTHING and for the first few weeks I was paralyzed.. I mean, I LOVE to cook and cooking has GLUTEN IN IT! Just kidding.. but just about everything he eats does. But, we are getting by, and I have clung tightly to a couple of hands and have proven my co-dependence to those who have been there and done that.. Thank you for your help! Ps- That birthday cake up above? I baked it, and it had no WHEAT FLOUR or BUTTER! Totally GFCF.. and everyone ate it. (It wasn't that bad)
Jaxon was a fun, but CRAZY baby... He cured us of having more babies for a while... That has seemed to rub off, but, our love for him has not.
We have high hopes for you Jaxon! I mean, even Michael Phelps was diagnosed with ADD... With your length, competitive spirit and brute determination, you never know, you could be a hero just like him.
I do remember that when you received a name and a blessing from you Dad, he blessed you that you would be an influence for good and that you would be known for that throughout the world.
All I know for sure is that HE has high hopes for you, and WE do too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
