These past few weeks have gone by so quickly, we been so busy! I have to go back and look at pictures to see what has been going on. Rob's been working a lot and will be working alot the next few weeks, so I've spent alot of time at my mommas! We bought Austin his first little backpack, it's too cute :) gotta love spiderman!! Austin absolutely loves going outside now, whether it's just sitting outside or taking walks. He's also rolling on his side from his back, making it about 3/4 of the way over, but then he just sits there and coos, then turns back over to his back :) We now can put Austin in the front of the shopping cart if we help hold him. He loves looking around as we run errands, it's helped us to be able to go out and get things done! We got to talk to Liam and Beth in Australia on video chat for the first time - that was really really neat!!! My daddy turned 63 years young, yes i know he doesn't look or act that old. We celebrated at my parents house! Austin has been having trouble taking his bottle the past week or so -- ever since Easter he had gotten used to me feeding him bc I slacked on giving him bottles during the day -- so now he protests them and goes on hunger strike. Mom had a good day with him today tho finally, he took all of them with little fuss! I've met Joy and Kerrie and Jessie for supper these past two weeks - it's so great catching up with them! Trying to get everything for school figured out, I've registered for the summer, boo. Time for bed, more in a few weeks - we've got a busy next few weeks.

Happy Easter!

It’s been a busy past few weeks. We weighed Austin at 3 months at my parents house and he weighed 16 pounds and is 25 inches long. Our baby is growing like crazy! I can’t believe he’s now 3 ½ months old. I think he’s changed the most in the past two weeks – he is now smiling at you when you do something funny and real laughing J He’s grabbing toys and holding onto them. He grabs the toy frog on the bouncer and pulls it to make noise. He looks at books as I’m reading them. He still rolls to both of his sides, but he doesn’t roll over yet! He sleeps at least 8 hours every night, if not 9-11!! Def. mine and Rob’s kid. He’s starting to like the jumper thingy and exersauser. He’s now reacting to Tally, which is fun… and gross! He started open mouth smiling when tally was licking him and tally licked his mouth- yuck! Austin started laughing and thought it was the funniest thing in the world.

Last weekend Austin and I went to paint pottery with Laura D and Joy. We made Grandma a mothers day present. We had the best time!! This weekend was Easter weekend – we went to Dahlonega and had a picnic at the park. Daddy bought Austin a Spiderman fishing pole, but it was way too cold to go fishing. Maybe next time! Then on Sunday we went to church and then the whole family went back to our house and had a big lunch. We played games and painted Easter eggs. It was so much fun hanging out with everyone J We joined Smoke Rise Baptist Church yesterday, we are really excited about this. The people in our Sunday school class are very nice and we love the pastor and the worship. We also LOVE the nursery and feel very comfortable leaving Austin there. And the nursery people love Austin. There are a few people In our SS class that either just had babies or are ab to have babies.

Austin started watching tv a few days ago!! We put Bob the bulder on while he was laying in our bed in the morning, and he just stared at it for 15 minutes. Then, we were watching a movie of Liam on the computer and he just sat and watched it! And the best news we’ve heard yet this week… as many of you may know, my parents are going to Australia for the month of July, which we are very excited ab, but we are trying to find people to help watch Austin, since I’m working and will be in school and we aren’t quite sure of Rob’s work schedule. Well, my Aunt Ellen said that she would come help out for the first two weeks of July. We are so relieved that she’s coming to help and are excited that she is going to get the chance to get to know Austin!! Thanks Ellen!!!!!

Hope everyone had a great Easter. Check out our new photos and videos of Austin!!!
