Jax’s TV Debut

We all know that Jax is cute, but now the entire metro area knows! Jax had his TV debut last night on Channel 5 KSTP. The story wasn’t specifically about Jaxson, but he definitely stole the show! He’s a natural…like his mama! 😉

Here’s us being interviewed for TV

Some of you may remember when, last year, the city of Prior Lake wanted to bulldoze our house and 34 other properties in our neighborhood to build a bypass road. Somehow, I became one of the “voices” of a grassroots awareness campaign that convinced City Hall to reconsider destroying historic homes in the name of economic development.  

Here are links to some newspaper articles about what happened: 


But – now another proposal is on the table. I don’t know if it’s the right choice for our town or not, but in any case, Channel 5 decided to do a follow-up interview with us to see what we thought about the plan.

Of course they like me…
But enough with the interviews already!

We’ll get an “official” weight check this afternoon at the doctor’s. On Friday, he weighed in at a whopping 9lbs 5ozs. How much do you think he weighs today?

Oh man, what an adventure! I went into labor unexpectedly when I was 23w3d pregnant. Jaxson was born weighing 1 lb 8 oz. A tiny little peanut, but boy was he feisty. He still is! We love it now, but we probably won't when he is a teenager. I write about our journey and all other things that come with it, including a brain tumor. We look forward to "meeting" you - come hang out with us...we're pretty cool.

  1. I work for the County in the Transportation Dept. and when I saw this proposal and had to do some work on cost estimates just for buying the property to make the bypass I couldn’t help but think what a terrible idea and waste of tax dollars for a minimum of benefit, or possibly no benefit to the community. I was happy to hear that the neighborhood there fought so hard against it. Way to go!
