Back from Texas...
Well, we've had a busy past few weeks. Last week we took our trip to texas. We flew out on Friday and Austin did great, he slept the whole plane ride. We had a great time seeing Rob's family and seeing them meet Austin --- of course they all think he looks just like Rob! Austin got to meet his black grandma (rob's mom), big daddy (rob's dad) and his great-grandma on rob's side!! He also got to meet Charlee and Taylor, his cousins. Charlee just turned 6 months old --- she was so cute wacthing Austin, but austin is still too little to even notice her! Taylor helped us out alot with Austin :) we are exhausted from our trip, it was so busy just trying to fit in seeing everyone everyday, hopping from house to house -- Austin was a trooper, but it's taken a few days to get him back on schedule. Aunt Janis took us shopping and got Austin the cutest clothes, so he doesn't have to be a naked boy this summer :) Ang and rob's dad threw a meet the baby shower for us with all of Rob's friends, we had a great time! And Austin was such a good boy, he didn't fuss the whole time during the shower. On the way back to the airport we stoped by the dallas cowboys stadium so we could get austin and daddy's picture taken before it was torn down!!
Austin had his one month check-up (well, he was 5 weeks old) a few days ago and here are his stats:
Birth: 5 weeks:
8 lbs 7 1/2 oz 12 1/2 lbs. (95th percentile)
20 1/2 inches 23 inches (90th percentile)
head-36 cm head - 39 cm (i think!) (75th percentile)
So, he is growing like a weed! I also had my postop appointment a few days ago and dr. kleiss said i looked really good and was healing nicely. I only have 5 lbs. to go to get back to my original weight, i can't beleive it came off so fast! I still can't work out for a few more weeks, but i can drive and start picking up heavier things. My incision is healing nicely. (this picture is of dr.kleiss, the best doctor ever!!)
On friday we visited work for the first time. It was nice seeing everyone!!! We got to show off Austin and had lunch with my department.
Austin absolutly LOVES bathtime now. He just sits in the water and looks around -- it relaxes him. We've started to get him into a routine of giving him a bath at night, then feeding him and reading him a book until he falls asleep. He's started sleeping 4-5 hours now during the night for the most part, which we are very excited about!! He also smiled for the first time the other day, and he's been doing it ever since, but only for just a second, i can't catch a pic of it yet. and he's rolled on his side a few times now, i couldn't believe it -- he's such a big boy!
We just got the pictures back that Tim (our wedding photographer) took for us. They turned out soooo cute! I can't believe how much he's grown already, these pics were taken when he was 12 days old. We've posted all these pics and the pics from Texas!!
