We made plans with both sides of our families to meet up in Cameron at the 2011 Milam County Nature Festival. Auggie was able to meet all his cousins on Tim's side. I know they had been really looking forward to meeting him. All the times they saw him were through the window or TV when we got on XBOX Live. Drake, Cole, Lindsay and my mom were able to come from my side. Tim is the advisor from Texas Park & Wildlife for the organization who organized the festival- The El Camino Real Chapter of Texas Master Naturalist. The members have kept up with how Auggie has been doing so they were all happy they were able to meet him. Auggie was also able to meet a pair of Tim's landowners- Molly & Ray. They're so sweet and both times that I've met them, I feel like I'm part of their family! One of these days we're going to make a trip out to their place- Auggie has lots of fishing to do!
The festival is was fun! Auggie fell asleep after he ate. He was nice and comfy in the Snugli carrier once he was facing towards me.

We've been helping Auggie practice sitting up on his own. I think it is going well and he'll be sitting up on his own in no time! He always wants to be sitting straight up.
