His umbilical cord stump fell off today so at some point Scotty and I will attempt his first bath! :) I will be sure to get pictures of that adventure too!
We are all doing really well. :) Jax is a very laid-back baby (so far at least) and loves to eat, sleep, and make fun diaper messes for mommy and daddy to clean up! He has been very alert the past few days and is awake from at least 9am-noon everyday! He has also been great about sleeping in his crib at night which we are very thankful for. :)
Be sure to check back tomorrow as we have his 2-week check up so I will update his current weight...which I am 99% sure will be well over 10 pounds! :)
Hanging out with mama. :)
Anyone want to squeeze some cheeks? :)

Jax also had a really great day! :) He did so good at all of his feedings and even took a nap in his crib for the first time!!! He also got to experience his swing which he also seems to love. Both mommy and daddy got peed on for the first time today...looks like we have a little "jokester" on our hands! :)
I do have to call his doctor tomorrow to make his first doctors appointment. He has lost a little too much weight already so we are having to monitor him pretty close. As of Friday he had dropped from 10.6 pounds to 9.4. :( However, they did weigh him again last night and he is back up to 9.57 so at least we are on our way back up. :)
Well, that the latest with us. :) He is a wonderful little guy who rarely cries and seems happy and content with everyone he has been around. We are so in love and lucky to have him as our son!!!

Jaxon has been perfect so far! The only time we have heard his little cry was when he was born...other than that he has been sleeping and nursing (which is also going really well so far!).
Anyway, from my hospital room to you...meet Baby Jax:
Daddy and Jax
Are you kidding me???!!!!
After his first bath. :)
Jax and me (excuse the way I look...it was a LONG day!)
I am sure we will get more pictures today, so I will continue to post. :) Thank you for all your love, support, and well-wishes...we are so grateful for all of our friends and family!

The plan for tonight is to check in at 12am, they will then monitor Jaxon for the first hour to make sure he is happy and content, and then they will give me my first dose of Cirvidil (to start softening my cervix). It sounds like I will also get a sleep aid in hopes that I can get a few hours in before they start the Pitocin first thing tomorrow morning. Dr. Pew is hoping that Jax will be here sometime tomorrow afternoon or evening. :)
Wish us luck! I am very excited and a little nervous (my pain tolerance SUCKS...and yes, I am more than willing to admit that!). I do plan on having an epidural but am hoping to be able to tolerate the contractions for a bit on my own. I am so looking forward to seeing and holding our little boy!!! :)
We will try our best to keep everyone updated as things progress tomorrow and will post pics ASAP. Thank you for all your love and support, it means the world to us.
Love, Ris and Scott

Scott and I made this fireman's ladder for Jax's room. :) In the middle is Bill's actual fireman's helmet that he wore while on duty!
Grandpa Bill's Helmet (close-up)This is a picture of Grandpa Bill fighting a fire back in the day! (he is the one closest to the fire!)
The nursery is done...and ready for Jax to move in! :)
Oh...and for fun...Grandma Debbie got Jax (and Daddy) matching Nike Shox for Christmas!!! :) They are sooooo cute...I can't wait to put them on him! :)
And...as promised...here is my belly shot at 39 weeks 5 days! I am ready to POP!That's it for now...hope everyone is having a great weekend. :)

At our 38 week appointment (last Tuesday) I was 1cm dilated and still about 50% effaced. Everything with both Jax and I still looks great...good blood pressure, steady heart beat for him, my belly measurement was right at 38 weeks, etc. I am starting to get pretty uncomfortable though...he is definitely "dropping" as I notice that I am constantly pulling my shirts down during the day to cover my belly! My feet/ankle swelling is also getting worse by the day...I can't wait for the day when I can actually see the bones in my feet again! Sleeping is also starting to get really interesting...getting in and out of bed is like an Olympic event! :) BUT...other than those few things, I am doing really well. I am just ready to have and meet this little boy!
