The BIG BOY bed!

Introducing Jax's BIG BOY bed!!!

In Jax's words "FIRETRUCK!!!!"


Grandma Debbie bought this bed for Jax when he was only a few months old and it's been sitting in boxes in her garage for almost two years now! For Jax's 2nd Birthday we decided it was time for the crib to go. Grandpa Harlan and Daddy spent about 3 hours building the bed...I don't think I have ever seen so many boxes and pieces for ONE bed!

Our BIG boy! :)

Happy 2nd Birthday Jax!

Happy 2nd Birthday baby boy!

Wow...two years? I have no idea where that time has gone. It seems like just yesterday that we were bringing our little 10.6 pound baby home from the hospital. :)

In the past two years Scott and I have learned a whole new level of love (and patience!). We feel so incredibly blessed to have such a sweet, funny, energetic, smart, and adventureous little boy.

Cinnamon Rolls for the Birthday Boy!
