how times have changed

We went to New York when Austin was 6 weeks old and couldn't really stick up for himself. Landon enjoyed "picking" on him, even though we was just playing. Austin was determined to stick up for himself this time around!

New home

Uncle Bry and Aunt Laura have a new home!! We got to go on a walk to see it.Aunt Laura (with Baby Holt Grandson #6), Grammy, AA, Grandpa Bob, Uncle Bry and Papa.

Papa and AA

There has been a recent request for pics of Andrew... Ask and you shall recieve (picky picky!)


Austin had his own little seat (that he shared with Landon) and got to eat meals at the big table with all of us. Austin was so excited to listen to Grandpa Bob play guitar!

wiped out

We were in Oxford this weekend at Grammy and Grandpa Bob's and we got to spend the weekend with Austin's Uncle Toph, Aunt Haly, and his cousins, Braeden and Landon. We headed up on Friday and got to hang out with Grammy and Grandpa waiting for the rest of the gang to get into town from New York. Needless to say he was wiped out by the end of the day.

sleeping soundly as we speak

its the little things 3/25

1. a wonderful husband who got up early to get his hair cut so i could have my alone time in the afternoon

2. 2 rebate checks in the mail that i didn't think i would ever get

3. my stubborn attitude that got me what i wanted at Target ( i could have easily left unhappy, but i stuck with it until i got someone to understand me and yes they probably wanted to kill me)

4. a chocolate chunk cookie left over from yesterday

5. a rainy day to stay inside and hang out with the little man.

new swimming adventures

Austin tried out his new floaty tonight and loved it, he just hung out and watched everyone playing around him. We were sad our small group was cancelled, but it was fun to be able to go swimming on a Thursday without group and without Mama being on call.

this morning

This is how I found little man this morning. For a minute I convinced myself he wasnt breathing, but I got over it and realized how much he loves his new "freedom"

new shoes

I was really excited to buy new running shoes today... Austin was more excited that I brought home a new box to destroy!

unswaddled champ

We were so worried to stop swaddling Austin, but last night was the big night.  He did great!  He only had one out burst a little before midnight, but slept the rest of the night until 6am and ate and slept until 8.20am!  cant ask for much more than that...  We were very proud of him.  

This pic is about 2 minutes after I put him down tonight.

Monkey review- 7 months

Austin turned 7 months yesterday... a few updates
  • started trying to pull himself on things
  • stopped swaddling on St. Patty's day
  • tried carrots, bread, tofu, egg yolks, peaches, and plums
  • Mastered picking up cheerios and puffs and has nearly mastered actually getting them into his mouth
  • Started taking a bath in his rubber ducky
  • Usually taking about 2 naps a day, one mid morning and the other in the afternoon.

Lovin the sunshine

Ready for a day out in the sun!


Hanging out at the library

lunch at the park

We had a wonderful lunch in the park today in the sunshine.  Andrew and I stopped at the bakery and got Reuben sandwiches in honor of St. Patrick's day and brought them to the park to eat.  Little guy had lunch with us too!

Papa pierced Austin's nose at the park today

Happy St. Patricks Day!
