Jackson Wesley in a nutshell

I can't believe how much my little guy has changed over the last 7 months!  Time is flying by, but I don't seem to remember life without my little guy by my side.  Let's start from the beginning.....
Jackson Wesley Wonnacott was born February 22, 2013 at 1:56 AM.  He weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces, and was 21 inches long.  Jax was in NOOOO hurry to make his appearance, making the whole labor process about 29 hours long.  Thank heavens for modern medicine.  I take my hat off to all those who have natural childbirth, but man my labor was about as much pain as I need! I was able to hold him for about 1 minute before they took him away to help clear his lungs.  Those 2 hours without my boys seemed like a lifetime!  I fell hard, and I fell fast for my little Mr. Moomoo.
Our transition home was pretty flawless, thanks to my amazing mom!  She taught us so much about caring for a baby, and Jackson was honestly a dream from the start!  Except for he had very little interest in eating...oh how the tides change!
Our first family trip took place at Jax's 5 week mark.  We flew to Arizona to spend Easter with my family.  Jackson met his aunts, uncles, and cousins, and we all had a blast!
On April 21st, Garrett gave Jackson the sweetest blessing.  The day was perfect, except for the mob that attacked a certain brother-in-law of mine after the meeting!
At the ripe old age of 3 months, Jax accompanied us to London and Paris!  I was terrified, but he was better than I could have hoped for!  It was a trip of nursing in random public places, bottle feeding while walking around, and little sleep, but we had a blast with the Wonnacott's.  The highlight for all 3 of us had to be seeing the magical Eiffel Tower.  

Our next family adventure was a trip to Aspen Grove in Provo with my family.  Jackson loved playing with his cousins, who are all pretty crazy about him.  A week is never long enough with these people!
Our last few months have been much quieter!  Jackson has chunked up to the extreme and LOVES his food!  There is no end to the amount of food he will eat and milk he will drink.  I am a little obsessed with his rolls!  We have been able to make a couple trips to Provo for football games, and have tried to spend as much time as possible outside.  If only Jackson was a better sleeper, I have decided he would be the perfect child... He never has bad days, and rarely does anything but smile.  Don't worry, he already has 6 teeth!  He rolls around ALL over the place, and has started doing the army crawl the past couple weeks.  Are you sure he has to grow up?
Oh Mr. Moomoo, how I love you!

Back to Blogging

After a couple of year, I have decided to return to the blogging world!  I'm hoping this will help me record Jackson's milestones and to stay in touch with friends and family.  Now what you have all been waiting for....... what is up with the name?  Let me explain.  Wonnacott is long and often misspelled.  Most people spell Garrett's name with one T instead of two.  So I wanted to think of something different than our names.  Jax has several nicknames, but only one that he really responds to and that is "Mr. Moo Moo."  We don't really know where I got it from, but it has just kind of stuck.  As a joke, I started calling Garrett "Papa Moo Moo," and he would respond with "Mama Moo Moo."  I guess thats what lack of sleep will do to ya.....but anyways, I hope you enjoy meeting the Moo Moos!

Garrett and I started dating in May of 2009 at BYU

We were married April 28, 2011 in the Mesa, AZ temple

And Jackson joined our little family February 22, 2013

Love this little family of mine!
