We spent the beginning of a beautiful weekend with Molly and Ray. We weren't too sure how the weather was going to hold up but it ended up being a gorgeous day! I got a nap in while it rained and Auggie kept pushing through his tiredness. He eventually fell asleep in the middle of a peek-a-boo session with Molly. Tim always enjoys being outside and away from any city-like location.
While Auggie napped, Tim and I walked around the property with the dogs. I wanted to get some pretty pictures and Tim wanted pictures of some little toads in one section of the property.
You can click on the photo below and have a slideshow of all the photos. You'll get the full photo since they will be larger than they appear on the blog.

I am very pleased with how a couple of those pictures turned out. I especially like the one with the grasshopper and the one of the butterfly in the very top photo. Maybe I’ll have something to add to the Milam County Nature Festival next year.
Tim watched Auggie Saturday while I helped my friend, Heather, photograph a wedding in Waller. I am so glad I was able to do that. It was fun and so nice seeing Heather. I miss hanging out with her! Auggie got to hang out with Zane and Jen Saturday evening while Tim and Dan watched a rugby game in The Woodlands. I received a text message from Jen that evening with a picture of Auggie eating at her dinner table. I was so confused! I had no idea Tim had dropped him off. Auggie enjoyed being there. He and Zane are really good about playing with each other (or leaning on each other like they have in the past;). It is so nice to have a few friends around with kiddos Auggie’s age.

Auggie is feeling much better this week. His attitude has completely changed towards diaper changes- thank goodness! He’s continuing to babble quite a bit. I love when he says “butterfly.” He moves his hands around like they’re fluttering and then he says “butterfly” and attempts to find one in the area. We have one in our living room so he can usually find that one.
Tim introduced Auggie into fig newtons last week. YUM! Instead of paying almost $3 for the Nabisco brand, we found some off brand ones that are just as good and are only $1! Sounds a lot better. They’re 100 calories per 2 cookies so if he continues to eat them like he is now, he’ll be adding a bit of weight! We’re really hoping we can encourage him to eat more so we get him off of formula.
Auggie has started to like brushing his teeth after his nighttime bath. He gets all cuddled into his froggy towel and then reaches for a tooth brush. He usually likes it when either Tim or I brush our teeth, too. I’m hoping that habit sticks! He doesn’t need to have terrible teeth!
I should have a post on Thursday... I need to finish quite a few projects for clients and then catch up on some chores around the house... so we'll see!
