Auggie's First....

... Visit with Great Grandma Rigby! She flew in from Sarasota, FL on the 22nd to spend Christmas with my family. She was able to make the trip to College Station with my parents and Kristopher on Christmas Eve.

... Bath in his baby bath tub! For some reason, I am really nervous about baths and little babies. I have no idea why. I'm sure it has something to do with being worried about the water temperature and the first picture shows why- I make it too cold. Auggie did not like that! Tim filled the tub up with warmer water and Auggie was content shortly after that.
Auggie did not like the temperature Mommy picked for the water!
He was happy once he was dry (before we washed his face)

... Rugby related item! Miss Holley sent Auggie an official New Zealand All Blacks shirt. It's a little big, but he'll be able to wear it when he's older! It'll be perfect for all our trips up to Nacogdoches for the SFA Rugby Alumni games.

Other than some of Auggie's "Firsts," we set the date for Auggie's next hearing test. It'll be done back at Dell Children's (DCMC) in March. We had 2 options- 1. To keep him awake until the test started (its called a 'sleep deprived' test); or 2. Put him under anesthesia. Since he was anesthetized while he was at DCMC and didn't have any problems before, his pediatric ENT doctor recommended him go under again. She also said it was a good idea since we live 2 hours away and if he didn't stay asleep for the 'sleep deprived' test, we'd have to redo it another day. They only do this hearing test 2 times a week and they were full until there was a cancellation in March. The first time Auggie was put under, he had to fast for 6 hours before the procedure so I have a feeling we'll have a long and stressful two hour drive that morning!

Auggie also got his RSV vaccine Tuesday afternoon. He'll have another shot in 30 days and then he'll be covered until the end of the RSV "season." Then hopefully we'll be able to go outside! :)

Auggie wouldn't fall asleep unless someone was holding him so I was able to get him to fall asleep on the couch
