Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. first time he had an opinion on what he wore- he wanted to wear the choo choo pajamas to bed
And another day I tried putting him in jeans and he wasn't going to let that happen!

2. he will tell you about his day- so if we just got back from the park he will tell dad
"slides"
"ball"
3. DO NOT SAY TREAT unless you really mean it- fruit snacks and nilla cookies do not count!
4. We went and saw the real Thomas the Train and it was one of the best memories I will forever cherish with Austin. I can't even describe how it feels to have a little boy in love with such a fun thing and get to be apart of it.





5. We also went to the zoo and that was really fun! Austin has never been to the zoo and I am not sure he totally got the concept but by far his favorite thing was the cow(long horns) and the choo choo ride.
6. Opened the freaken front door! We are off to buy locks!
7. In and out, in and out.... You better believe he threw the biggest tantrum when I told him no more in and out!

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. likes to color but it usually last 2 minutes
2. loves to play in the car- I give him the keys and he likes to put them in and out...and honk the horn
3. when Dad comes home he just lights up and runs to the door
4. says "ya" to any question you ask
Austin are you poopy? "ya"
Are you hungry? "ya"
Want to go to bed? "ya"
5. kicked and scream and threw the biggest tantrum leaving the Y (he loves the toy trains!)- yes I got looks

:Austin:
1. We are officially done with the binky. I wasn't planning on taking it away any time soon but he kept chewing on them and ruin them that on Wednesday I had had enough! So I threaten to take them away forever and put them in my sock drawer. They are still there. He went to bed that night just fine! He did ask for it when we laid him down and then in the middle of the night he woke up crying for it but fell back to asleep. We almost caved on night 5 when he woke up and would not calm down. However, I didn't think I could handle taking it away again so we decided not to. Naps are going just fine. He did ask for it today when he hurt himself. My heart breaks thinking about it and how that stage of life is over. I loved binkys! I need to throw them away so I don't get reminded every morning that we are done- it has just made the fact that Austin is growing up real.
last picture I ever took with a binky in his mouth :(
 2. The picture above also shows our new hangout place- the library. They have that awesome train set, Lego table, and tons of puppets! We signed up for reading time and let's say Austin just wanted to leave so he could play with the trains:)
3. We taught him his neck and bum. Now we are working on elbow(which he can say clear as day, such an odd word coming from his mouth) and knees. I am not sure he forgot a lot of animal noises but he will never do them for me. We are working on that.
4. I know I have already mentioned his love for saying "buh bye" but he is getting more loud and less shy about it. I already told you how he screams it to me at the Y when I leave to exercise but now he does it all the time! It is really cute but sometimes he should say "Hi". Gary and I took him to the grocery store Saturday and he screamed at the top of his lungs and waved "buh bye" as we checkout. Everyone turns around and smiles and waves back. I don't get the option of being shy with this kid- he is going to force me out of my comfort zone everyday I can tell.
5. Bus-y bus 
He loves those bright yellow things! And one day I took him to the elementary school right when school was getting out just so we could 6 bus-y busses:) When he gets so excited about things like this I am just so  in love with having such a true boy!

Tuesday Tidbits

:Austin:
1. finally kicked the runny nose and cough isn't as bad
2. sad that the pools closed- I have no idea what we are going to do this winter
3. stayed in nursery the whole time without Mom or Dad and had a good time
4. not a big fan of sand in between his toes but loved scooping it into the bucket- hopefully we can change that next year because Raccoon River is such a cool place and that's what we did on Labor Day




5. likes to play in the car with the keys and pretend he is driving- then we play try to get me out and he jumps from one seat to the next and I keep running around the car opening different doors:)
6. we went and saw the Oscar Meyer Wiener Mobile
