It's Been Too Long!

Gramma, Drake and Kristopher came for a visit last week while Tim was in Mississippi for work. It was great having someone here but man, Drake can talk... and talk... and talk! I guess Tim and I have that to look forward to in a couple of years!
Drake and Auggie
Auggie had a lot of fun with Drake around. He didn't quite play with Drake, but he did play alongside him most of the time. Auggie thought Drake was really funny. He would laugh when Drake talked and Drake would tell him "I'm not being funny. Stop laughing at me." It was kinda funny.
Thanks for the visit Kristopher!

Kristopher isn't too happy when the kids drink out of his drinks or eat his food. We had a good laugh over this, though 

Auggie saw Drake do the Sit-N-Spin a couple times earlier in the day. This was the first time I saw Auggie do it!

Tim really enjoyed his trip to Mississippi. He rode up with a fellow Texas Parks and Wildlife employee and SFA alum so they had plenty to talk about. They went to the Southeastern Prairie Symposium in Starkville, MS. If you know anything about Tim, you know he enjoyed it. I'd share some pictures but he didn't take any! 

Auggie has been Mr. Independent lately. Over the weekend, he started refusing bottles but eating pretzels and cookies and fish sticks a bit more. We've gotten him back up to about 3 bottles a day and his solid food intake has increased too. I'm really hoping these habits continue!

I'm ready for his tantrums to go away, though! When we went to Auggie's 18 month check up, his pediatrician asked about throwing fits... Haha... does he ever?! I know it is just a stage but I know it's a stage that could last for a long while. We've been approached by a few people lately that have commented about how happy he is and he seems to be "in his own happy little world," and that they could just steal him. Well, they'd give him back. Trust me, there are times when he's in his own cranky little world for about 15 minutes where he cries and pounds his fists on the wall or couch. But for all those cranky moments, he's an absolute doll!

When anyone is on the floor, he is instantly tackling and wrestling with them. He's a big fan of jumping up and down on anyone's stomach and standing on their side to see what's over the couch. He'll definitely love to run around and wrestle with his cousins when he's older.

Since Tim was out of town last Monday, I took Auggie to the park to update his picture. The last photo we sent out was from his 12 month photo shoot. I took him to the same place but the trail was overgrown. I was really disappointed about that. It would've been nice and green with a cute little wooden bridge. Instead, Auggie played with lady bugs. He had fun pushing them along and picking them up. One even crawled onto his finger, up his arm and up the back of his neck and hung out in his hair for a bit. He thought the lady bug was hilarious. He signed "bug" quite a bit in his own cute way.

Hello, Mr. Drooly!

  1. How tall is he? He looks so tall in his photos!! What a great age these boys are at! Colin's the same with wrestling people on the floor! I'm so glad August is eating more. Maybe he's starting to realize how yummy food can be!! <3


Thank you for stopping by!
