Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. squeals/screams really high pitch and loud if he wants something, something is taken away, and he just loves to hear him self
2. when we pick him up sometimes he will kick his feet in frustration
3. his temper is increasing...yikes!
4. oh my goodness this child is friendly...but he is weird.
he will go up to anyone and introduce himself and make himself comfortable on their lap
(for example: church-crawled under the pew and a nice grandma picked him right up and they exchanged smiles and cuddles...does not freak out or crawls under the teachers desk in Sunday school and smiles at everyone)
BUT!
when I drop him off at the Y he totally freaks out and starts crying hysterically!
I am starting to think he is only friendly when Mom or Dad is around and he knows/or thinks they are not going anywhere.
5. is starting to grow a mullet, at least it is something
6. has taken a total of 2 steps on his own
didn't take any pictures this week, so here is an old one
it just isn't fair that they grow up so fast

Family Photos

By popular request (ok, it is only Holly that asked),
here are some (like a hundred) of my
FAVORITE
Family Photos.
Austin couldn't have been more cooperative.
















A big shout out to our photographer, Nicole!
She did a fantastic job.
My Mom who helped with the wardrobe choices.
And my friend Nellena for letting me borrow her stylish jewelry and shoes!

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. will pick up food/binkie with his mouth. Gary tried to teach him to use his hands one night and it took a while for him to get it. He got very frustrated. I blame this one me...I don't like his hands or face messy so I just always place things in his mouth for him.
2. has a biting habit that we are not sure exactly what to do about. He has bitten Gary and I hard a few times. 
3. will not leave my shoes and umbrella alone. I just welcome people into my door with a pile of shoes:)

4. feeding this child adult food is a patience building exercise for me. he has not eaten anything for me except a cheese quesdila. He just loves his baby food!
5. on Monday we went to the doctor for an ear check and the little buddy has another ear infection! so we are on antibiotics again:(
6. we went to the BYU vs. Iowa State game on Saturday and from here on out Austin is not invited to another game until he can sit the whole time. Oh my word was it scary! He just wanted to crawl and than that turned into being a cranky, sleepy baby.
7. just started saying ma ma...and we are pretty sure he knows what it means...melts my heart!
