The Many Places & Faces of Pax

   There is never a dull moment around here, NEVER.  Paxton is our most active, into everything, see it-conquer-it child, YET.  And he makes the funniest faces to boot!

So in honor of this mischievous little boy we are so blessed to have in our home, I have composed a post about the Many Faces and Places of Pax.

Ice Cream Snatcher: Here Pax is helping himself to the Homemade Ice Cream at Great Grandpa’s Birthday party while no one was watching him.

Pax and the ice cream

Escape Artist:  Dale came home from work to Pax standing out in our lane in his socks recently. The sneaky little stinker had figured out how to open the back door and let himself out…QUIETLY!  Thank the LORD he was fine! But he sure gave me a HEART ATTACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  None of the other kids EVER did this!


Fitness Guru: He loves to climb & play on the work out equipment at Great Grandpa and Grandma’s house.



Snack Sneaker:  If you don’t watch it, he’ll steal your snack and shove it all in one bite before you can say, “HEY! That was MIIIIIIIINE!”  Better not set your bowl down, right, Avery?

See that mouthful?  That’s the prune Grandma gave Avery for snack.







Scooter Stealer:  Pax likes to get on Grandpas scooter and push all the buttons.


Bunk Bed Bounder: he can scale bunk bed ladders in a single bound! And, after he is done messing with all of Destiny’s stuff, he can carefully back down too!


Step Stool Climber: He moves the step stool all over so he can get into things on the counter.


Table Topper:  He likes to climb on the table, grab apples and say: “BALL” as he chucks them across the room.


Chair Crusader:  Pax likes to get up on this chair and tell everyone how big he is!


While he is up there anyways, he decides to reek havoc on my décor….

“Uh-oh! Dropped it…”


“Now what can I do?”


“I know, I know, I’ll head over and have a snack……”


Fridge Defroster:


“Got it!  Now, how do I get this thing open?   MO-OM! A little help please….”


“WHAT?!?!?!?!?!? All that work and you aren’t going to let me eat this?”



Counter Crawler: Paxton likes to wait until you are not looking to crawl on the counter and play in the sink.002

(Yes, he is wearing a lavender bib, he has 2 big sisters, what do you expect!?  Besides, it goes so well with his purple and pink Sippy cups!)

Oatmeal Dumper:  This is Paxton, escaped from the highchair, sitting on my kitchen counter wearing his Oatmeal on his head. 

This is his face after he heard my gasp and exclaim:

“What in the world are you DOING, child!?”


Thankfully my camera was handy! 🙂

  I am telling you, if it’s quiet, don’t finish your laundry folding, don’t take a phone call, don’t even stop to get a drink, don’t walk….RUN to see what Paxton is getting into, cause it’s bound to be MESSY! 

(Soon after this photo was taken, Paxton put a good portion of the toilet paper into the toilet while Avery watched.  Nice.)


I love you my sweet, sweet, but oh-s0 naughty, Baby Tankers! 

(“Tank” is Paxton’s nickname because of how huge he was at birth, it stuck because of the Plow-through-life-nothing-stands-in-his-way-approach he takes. Funny how he grew RIGHT into this nickname!!!!!)

Happy Thursday!

  1. I absolutely loved this post. So cute to read how little boys can really make life
    so fun and interesting. Great job with the photos too.

  2. So funny about the oatmeal! Evidently my little sister must have been a little like Pax. As a toddler she reached/climbed up to get a big canister of powdered baking (bitter) chocolate down and dumped it all over her very blonde head. My mother tells us that while I was watching sister get a bath and shampoo I said “look, chocolate soap bubbles!” Of course pictures were not so frequent then, but my mom wrote a weekly column in our local paper and recorded the event for history.


  3. I love this post!! Paxton is a hoot–and such a chubby little dimply big-eyed stinker! I don’t know how you have the willpower to be his mom and discipline him…I think those eyes would melt me every time!

  4. hahahaha I loved this post & literally laughed my way through it all! My boy is only 4 mon & I can’t wait to see what all he will get into 😉 Better keep my camera handy, too!
