Random Picture Update

It has been a while since I have posted anything (because I have been just laying around being lazy-HA, I wish). This having a new baby and trying to get ready for Christmas thing has kept me on my toes I feel like I have been going non- stop for a straight six weeks now!

Anyway, I haven't posted in so long that I didn't really know what I wanted to write about so I just decided to do a random picture update to get you up to speed on what has been happening at the Watson house.First, our poor seven year old cat is going through some stress over adding Jaxton to the family. He has completely licked his belly bald. I took him to the vet yesterday and he got a couple of shots to hopefully help him calm down. If that doesn't work we will have to get him on kitty cat Prozac. I say if I can't have any Prozac my cat shouldn't be able to have any either! Ha-seriously I hope he gets adjusted to having Jaxton around soon. Ty (the cat) has been my baby for along time and I hate to see him upset.
Here is Jaxton stuffed into his stocking. I think you can tell by looking at him what he thought of it, but I just had to do it! When Ashlynn was born it was right before Easter so I stuffed her in an Easter basket. I felt like it was only fair to treat both children equally. Marshal and I are sooooo not into letting our children sleep with us. However, this adjusting to a newborns sleep schedule has made us a little desperate at times. Here is Marshal and Jaxton taking a little nap in Branson (I also think or hotel neighbors probably appreciated us not letting our baby scream at 4:00 a.m.). I am sure Marshal will love that I put this picture on here, but I think it is too cute how Jaxton is cuddled up to him.
Our mall is so pretty during the holidays. Marshal and I decided to take our new fancy camera out and take a few pictures of Ashlynn by the Christmas decorations. Ashlynn is into posing these days and would let you take pictures of her all day. I would have loved to have had her dressed in some of her cute Christmas clothes but the weather never seemed to corporate when we want it to so we just decided to take the pictures one day when we were out and about. Ashlynn's Christmas program at Mother's Day Out. I love this one because she is just like her momma-talking to her friends when she so should not be!

We took Ashlynn and Jaxton on the Polar Express Train ride in Branson. The train took us to the North Pole to pick up Santa and then served us hot chocolate and cookies. It was very neat. We had a great time.
They also came by to punch your ticket with your initial. Jaxton is cuddled up in the sling so you can't see him.
Thank you for letting me share. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Can't Believe I did that

So any one that knows me is going to be completely shocked by what I did yesterday. I still can't actually believe it myself.

Yesterday Marshal and I were out and about finishing our Christmas shopping for Ashlynn. We were getting hungry, but needed to eat something quick because our time was running out and I still had yet to find the Barbie Three Musketeer movie that Ashlynn had to have. We decided to run into Wendy's in front of the Roger's Walmart. Well I am not sure if you have ever been there on a Saturday, but there are some real interesting people in there let me tell you.

So Marshal and Jaxton find a seat while I finish getting the food. Just about the time I sit down Jaxton started to get a little fussy and I was feeling like a bad mom, because he had been in his car seat all day, so I decided to take him out and hold him while I ate. Big mistake. The lady behind me starts just having a fit. "Oh he is sooooo cute! Oh my I just have to hold him. My grand baby is two years old and I haven't held a baby in two years. I just have to. Please. I mean can I please." In my mind I am screaming heck no you can't hold my baby you crazy woman!

Let me just say, with Ashlynn I told anyone that came within 10 feet of her "Don't touch the baby". I seriously considered creating a sign to hang from her car seat that said "Please keep your hands off". I am not even joking.

Well, Marshal had gone to refill his drink and I honestly didn't know what to do or say so I whipped out my germx and squirted her hands and let her hold him. I know! I thought I was going to yank him out of her hands the second I let go. The whole time (which was probably a total of three minutes) I was completely freaking out! I kept thinking about what kind of germs she had on her, what if she all the sudden stood up and tried to run away with him, what if she dropped him, what if I don't even know what if.

Anyway, she handed him back and we all was just fine plus I think that I made her day. But beware other crazy ladies that are thinking about asking to hold my baby because I am pretty sure I will not be that nice again!

Aren't second babies fun! I don't know whether to feel sorry for the first child for being so overly protective or sorry for the second child for being so relaxed.... Mother hood I guess you can probably never "get it right"!
