There are so many things I'm thankful for, but right now--I'm mostly thankful that I didn't burn dinner, and that I have a wonderful husband that washed the dishes.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Ruiz family.

Best maternity shirt evah.

This tank top almost makes me sad that summer is over.

Happy Third!

Three years ago, this was me:

...chipmunk-faced, and on morphine.

And this is why:
I know I've posted this picture before, but it's my favorite. I call it "Proud Daddy, BIG baby"

I thought we'd change things up a bit and let the birthday boy speak for himself this morning in a little "getting to know you" interview.
Mommy: Jaxon, what is your favorite food?
Jaxon: Nooooo
Mommy: Do you have favorite cartoon?
Jaxon: No, I don't want cartoons
Mommy: Do you have a favorite movie?
Jaxon: No, I don't have movies. I don't have nothing to watch.
Mommy: Jaxon, what's your favorite color?
Jaxon: I want Blue's Clues.
Mommy: Do you have a favorite toy?
Jaxon: A DVD
Mommy: Who's your best friend?
Jaxon: Trike, it's not Hendrix

Well, that didn't go as planned. Trike is his dinosaur (thanks Aunt Tara, Uncle Will, Landon, Tristan and Avery!)--and he does have toys other than a DVD, which he isn't allowed to play with.
Happy Birthday to my little boy, who is growing up so fast!

Trying to work out "three" on his fingers.

Jaxon has recently become interested in that novel form of greeting: the handshake.
Last night, he offered his hand to Preston, and while giving his best handshake and million-dollar grin, said:
"Nice to beat you, Dad."
