Tuesday Tidbits

1. The Lorax is scary to him. The dark parts with the bad boy in the shed talking made Austin shed real tears of fear! I have never seen him like that and his heart was racing a million beats per minute! I could feel it through his chest because he was gripping on to me for dear life! Poor kid is sensitive like his mother.
2. we are doing the crying out method again for bed time- it came out of the blue and now he refuses to go to bed without a fight
3. was giggling with a friend the other day in the car and it was the most precious sound I have ever heard
4. when we leave to go anywhere he must touch the pumpkins on our porch first
5. can finally reach the dead bolt on our front door so I went out and bought a child lock- he is less then impressed
6. he loves to stick his hands down his diaper- weirdo
(no pictures this week, I have been horrible about getting camera out)

Tuesday Tidbits

1. look what he found- now he wont even stand in the cart or the car cart..grocery shopping with him is officially over:)
2. wouldn't wear his Halloween costume for me the first time and I was devastated but then second party we went to he wore it for 10min! That helped lift my spirits because of the hours I had spent on it.
3. has been crying at the Y and wouldn't let me leave nursery... stranger anxiety phase coming back?
4. he also has been waking up every night screaming bloody murder- one night Gary got him and Austin wasn't happy about it and was screaming out for me! He has never done that so I came out and cuddle him up and he fell asleep instantly- Gary's feelings got hurt just a tad
(is it nightmares?)
5. Sacrament meeting must signal in his head that it is time to run wild, we cannot keep him in the pew! No matter what I bring Gary and I cannot contain him. Seriously, there is only word to describe my child and it is wild.

Thinking about it.... this blog has turned into Austin's journal and I think it would be best to keep it from strangers eyes.... I will let anyone who reads this know soon :)

Tuesday Tidbits

1. I signed him up for a tiny chefs class at the Y and Monday was the first day. It had to do with a banana and He could have cared less. I don't know what I am going to do about a kid you won't eat fruit (or veggies), especially when we dipped it  in chocolate and he still wouldn't eat it.
2. Halloween costume is time consuming, he saw a sneak peak of it and then had a melt down since I wouldn't let him play with it.
3. Got a new toy and he loves it. - having a January bday is hard when it is so close next to Christmas... I felt guilty and slightly bored myself that he has nothing new to play with ever!
4. Loves the TRUCK book grandpa and grandma Allen gave him. We read it multiple times a day.
5. He is copying words I say a lot more now... And he also says his friend's name now...Elle Rae

Tuesday tidbit

1. Has been less consistent with nap time. Some days he won't nap, other days he only sleeps a little, and then sometimes I wonder if he is ever going to wake up!
2. Grandpa and Grandma Allen came this past weekend and spoiled the boy rotten! I think he is still trying to get use to just having me around to entertain him.
3. We went to the local pumpkin path and he had a blast. It was really fun and he loved riding the choo choo (tractor). He also enjoyed the corn pit and washing his very own pumpkin!

4. Favorite book at the moment is Go Dog Go
5. Loves watching himself on my phone. I learned this trick from Grandma Allen and have already recorded severely clips of him and used them to keep him entertained and quiet when it is necessary.
