Healthy Baby!!

today jax had his 6 month check up and shots. he is very healthy. his ear infection is cleared up and now we’re just dealing with allergies. he weighed 16# 12.5 oz and is 27″ long. he loves looking at all the murals on the walls at the dr.’s office. jax is rolling, sitting, and rocking on his hands and knees. he is very vocal and starting to say “mama, mama, and dada, dada”. i don’t think he knows what he’s really saying yet, but we are practicing.
i can’t help but feeling so incredibly blessed. to have a healthy baby is something i take for granted. at the dr. i saw a not-so-healthy baby and it just broke my heart, and made me look at jax a little differently. i will try not to let a day go by without thanking God for my beautiful healthy baby.
with that thought… i have been thinking lately about how blessed we truly are. i have so many things to be thankful for that i know i take for granted. we are blessed beyond measure. it is unbelievable all the material blessings that we enjoy. sometimes i feel ashamed of myself because i don’t even acknowledge all the things i already have, instead i focus on all the things that i don’t.
my goal for the next week is to not buy a thing for myself. i become so consumed with all that i want or “need”. i am going to TRY to focus my energy on being more thankful in prayer for all the material blessings i DO have. Material blessings aside, when was the last time we took an inventory of ALL our blessings?
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Have a good friday!!

  1. I’m glad Jaxon is healthy!! I totally agree with what you said it is true we are all focused on what we don’t have instead of what we do and we all could have it a lot worst. Have a great fall break with your husband and baby.Love, Renee
