July 19, 2011

Friday night, we travelled the long distance over to Kayla and Darren's to play dominoes. Just kidding about the long distance.. they live right across the street from us! Kayla's boyfriend was over so the guys played 42 while Kayla and I kept Auggie away from the back door. He wanted to stand at the door and watch the dogs play. Then he figured out the guys were playing with something and he wanted in on the domino game! Luckily, they weren't playing with zero set so Tim let him play with a group of dominoes. 
Checking out what the guys were up to!

Learning how to play 42 at a young age
Saturday night, we went over to Jud & Kristy's house for turkey burgers. They were delish! We had a good night hanging out with adults other parents! Their daughter, Pax, just turned one in June. 

Sunday, Melanie, Jane, Sherwin, Jacob, Micah, Cohen and Libby came up for church and lunch. It was really good seeing them. I think the kids had a good time playing with Auggie's toys after church.

Trying to figure out what the yellow thing was (a piece of squash)

Auggie had an appointment with his audiologist on Monday. It went well. Turns out, we won't work with her long.. She's getting a different job. Hopefully, her leaving won't delay the process too much. She said it may take up to 2 weeks longer than usual since there will only be one audiologist at the office (there's another one leaving, too). Figures, huh? We finally get the ball rolling and then there's another delay. It didn't seem like they were much help anyway since Tim called the insurance once on a Friday and by the next Tuesday, they had magically made headway with our insurance... MMMMhhhmmmmm....

...and back to my point... Auggie did well. He just needed to get his head measured. He wanted to move a lot but once he was occupied with the end of the tape measure, he sat still just long enough for the audiologist to get the correct measurement.

The ride home was different story. Auggie was not happy to be in the car again. He slept until we got to Highway 21 and then was whiney most of the time back to College Station. He really wanted to get out of the carseat!

I signed Auggie up for a music class that began yesterday and goes through Thursday. It's called Mainly Music and its hosted by Bryan First Baptist Church. It's a cute program we attended in the Spring- just before Auggie received his loaner BAHA. I think he enjoys watching the kids dance around the most.

Shake it up high, shake it down low and STOP!

What are they doing??

I spy a butterfly!
Auggie started a few new things over the weekend... Well, some of them he's gotten better at executing. He can sit himself down, pick something up and then pull himself back up. He had some scary moments (think- faceplanting into carpet) but he usually pops right back up. He's getting better at walking along objects and sometimes wants to climb over objects to get to a toy or something he can't have! During meal times, he likes to raise his hands when we put the high chair tray on. It's so cute! Last night, while Tim was eating, he set Auggie's food to the side of the high chair. Auggie started to playfully kick his legs and eventually tried to lean over to the jar of food because he wanted to eat! So proud of him! He's been doing really well when it comes to eating solids. We tried some table food over the weekend but he just plays with it.

Where are Mom and Dad?? This is what he does while we're in the car

Standing up so nice and tall!

Happy baby after nap time last week
And before, I leave you until Thursday, I thought I'd share what everyone on Facebook knows... I'm leaving Facebook for awhile to do some things for myself and around the house. I waste too much time trying to keep up with people on there instead of calling or texting them. I miss the interaction I had with my friends when we lived close to each other! I don't know when I'll be back on but you should know how to reach me if you need me.

So for those of you who read this through my post on FB, post a comment on here instead of on the FB post! I'll get it only on here!

Later Days!
