I just realized i havent updated my blog in months and figured I should give a little update on the Karr Fam!!
Life is always crazy around our house and has been REALLY crazy the past few months! Jaxson turned three in August and Logan is now 7 months (today)!! I cant believe how fast time flies! Matt unfortunately lost his job in October. Two days after he lost his job I got a call from my old job Kelly Educational Staffing to see if I could come and help fill in, what a blessing that has been for us. Our roles have switched a little he now stays home with the kids and I get to go and work. Its definitely not easy to leave them but at least I know that they are in good hands. He thankfully qualified for unemployment so we are very thankful for the way things have worked out. In October we qualified for a home but when Matt lost his job we were so thankful that we did not have a huge mortgage to worry about. Its crazy the way things work out! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and am sure that we will learn lots from the little bumps we are experiencing. Logan was diagnosed in September with a condition called Torticollis. Its a condition that develops while they are in the womb. We didnt notice it much until about 2 months and then realized he wouldnt look over his left shoulder at all, he would move his eyes but not his head. I took him to the pediatrician and they immediately referred me to a physical therapist. The condition means twisted neck and basically when he was in my belly his neck got a kink in it and his muscle on his left side didnt develop as much as it should have. He has stretching exercises he has to do, we go to physical therapy and he has to wear a neck brace. If those dont work surgery would be the next step. He is so adorable it just looks like his head is a little crooked but of all the things it could be I am so thankful that is all that it is! Jaxson adores his little brother so much! They have so much fun together and it melts my heart to see the bond they have already established. I love my kids and husband so much and its so fun to see their excitement at the little things in life and really puts things in perspective for me.

I really want to tell everyone I know how thankful I am at this time of year for my Savior and for His birth. I am so grateful for the example He is to me and my family and ask everyone to remember that HE is the reason for this wonderful holiday season! I hope all of you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a Happy NEW YEAR!

For those of you who don't know, I started a new workout regiment that absolutely kicks your trash, P90x... Yesterday I was doing a video that works primarily your back and chest and i had to use resistance bands. I put the band over my door and secured them so they wouldn't fling off and hit me in the face...but apparently I didn't secure them enough
(check out the pic below)

I was right in the middle of pulling my bands into a pull up position, so the bands were extended almost as far as they could extend, and next thing i know i am curled up in a ball on the floor wondering what in the he** just happened to me! The bands came down, flipping my left eye, followed closely by one of the handles. It flipped me so hard my face stung for about five minutes and me being the tough person that I am, started to cry..Now it might not look like much, but for almost two hours I had a black spot in my vision which made me a little worried, and thankfully that went away! So for all of your workout warriors out there be a little cautious while using rubber resistance bands, I never would have thought they could literally make me blind!! ( Too bad someone wasn't video taping me i would have won the grand prize on America's funniest home videos:)

My mom wanted to give all of the Pugh girls a fun filled afternoon of pampering, so we all got to go and have pedicures on Saturday! Heres a pic of em and mandy getting their toes done!

Afterwards we went to Yoshi's and got Sushi and we were so proud of Mandy for giving our Sushi a try( dont worry I didnt eat any raw fish!!) We also went to a womens expo at the South Towne expo center! I have the best MOM in the world, who always makes time for her girls and I am so BLESSED to have such wonderful girls around me!! And now I have really pretty toes to flaunt when I go into labor!!

Jax-man's latest adventures!

Jaxson has a new favorite food..Strawberries, one day i cut up some strawberries and let him dip them in sugar and the next thing i know he climbed on the counter and ate the whole pint of strawberries! If you look on the table you can tell he only bites them once and then moves onto the next one, but he had a major tummy ache after he was done!!

Jaxson and Dad fell asleep on the love-sac together! They play way too hard sometimes!

Jaxson has a new favorite!! He loves to be involved with anyone in the kitchen learning how to make anything that we eat!!

Along with the cooking craze...he LOVES to watch the food network!! Its so funny but he loves to see what they make and wont let me change the channel!

(WARNING: If you have a WEAK tummy dont look at the last picture!!)

Nothing like a good poop in the tub!! I swear my little boy can poop as much as a full grown adult and heres the proof!! Not something i like to clean up with my weak pregnant stomach, but i am learning to control my gag reflex and just do it!! Life with Jax is always an adventure, thats for sure!!

Yesterday was an eventful day for little Jax, but not one that we ever really wanted to happen..... Jax has been really sick this winter, but as of last Friday he has been diagnosed with Influenza(which is much different from any flu I have ever had!) and has been soooo sick! I noticed on Monday he wasn't improving and decided to take him back to the Dr. on Tuesday. He had developed a nasty little cough, that sounded different from any cough he has had in the past. Dr Wilcox told us to immediately take him to the hospital (at 5pm Tuesday night) to have x-rays taken of his lungs, and two hours later he called back to let us know Jax has Pneumonia. The scariest word I have heard out of a doctors mouth! Fortunately , he said he thinks we caught it at an early enough stage, and it should be able to be treated with antibiotics, but if not its off to the hospital! So far he seems to be in good spirits, and is doing well, so hopefully we are on the up and up!

Do you have the FEVER too?

Look at the finger!!
Jax's "pretend" sunglasses!

Its warming up outside finally and Jax and I have a major disease.....SPRING FEVER!!! Its finally getting to the point that we can go outside for an hour or so and play, but up until this week, we have been stuck indoors, taking lots of pictures and playing lots of monster truck games. His latest and greatest trick is the top picture...lets see how far my finger will go up my nose!!! IN fact, a couple of weeks ago we were teaching nursery and i looked over at him and his face was smeared from ear to ear with BLOOD!!! He gives himself nosebleeds, because he really jams that finger up into his brain!! Its an ongoing battle, a long with potty training , but we deal with it and have lots of fun together!! The bottom picture is Jax on superbowl sunday with his special 3D glasses on, he loves those glasses and when we go outside to play, he thinks they are sunglasses!! We cant wait for 24 more days....SPRING TO ARRIVE!! Hope everyone is doing well!!

Its a Buck Wilde out!!

It has been far too long since I have updated my blog and I wanted to post this cute little video of Jax and his latest favorite ride...UNCLE BLAKE!! He is obsessed with Blake and always has to ride the horsie, when he sees him! Blake is great with Kids and will be a great dad someday, but until then, I am totally fine with him entertaining my child for a bit!! (make sure to pause the music so you can hear Jax laugh!! its hilarious!!)

I smell T-r-o-u-b-l-e!!

Today I was getting ready to get into the tub and jaxson grabbed my arm and led me into my bedroom, where he proceeded to say to me,"Mommy, trouble, tine out!"(time out in Jaxson language)! I nearly fell over from laughing so hard, and I really did nothing to merit a time out but couldnt help but laugh at the fact that he is really starting to pick up on the little things that we all do and say around him! Its definitely going to be an adventure with him!

He's so proud of his newest ride!
