6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

February Update!

Jaxon has 2 teeth! Yes he is only 4 months. This is not abnormal for our family since Joslyn had 2 teeth at 3 months. He loves to jump up and down in his jumparoo. He is a very sociable baby. He doesn't like being left alone. He also loves to sit up and can't stand laying down. The poor little baby may never roll because I don't have much will power to let him sit there and scream. He has found his voice and so screaming and screeching is a normality around here. He wakes up pretty happy in the morning. but at night he starts screaming right away when he is hungry without warning. He is great at using his legs for kicking and trying to stand. Little Jax is so funny. If you don't wrap him up tightly, especially his arms, he will keep waking himself up. But if you wrap him arms he will sleep pretty good. My son would be comfortable in a straight jacket. What does that say about him? Or me in that fact? He is also very sensitive to sound. I have never seen a baby that flinches so easily to sounds. Joslyn used to sleep while the vacuum was going. And we have two barking dogs and so you would think that he would be used to noises. 

Joslyn is starting soccer next week! I am so excited to be a soccer mom. I am really excited to get to see my daughter run the wrong way on the field, interact with the other kids, carry the ball, and do everything wrong. I believe it will be very entertaining. I also believe it will be very good for her. She is a social butterfly and I know that having friends she sees weekly will help her. She is already loving kicking the ball around and daddy has taught her to keep her hands in her pockets. 

There will be some exciting adventures coming up soon, I can't wait to post about them. Otherwise we are doing ok. How are you?
