Austin enjoying the sunset at Hubbard Lake

Austin got to stay in his jammies all day when he was sick

Oh where to begin... Austin has had a very busy month. On August 19th Austin got his first cold. I was very sad because he was having a lot of trouble breathing and there really was not much we could do for our little guy. We had to elevate his crib and rub him down with Vicks but other then that we had to let it run its course. Austin was a trooper though and rarely fussed. He was very clingy though and wanted to be held a lot but most of that was due to it being hard for him to breath when laying down. Austin is now healthy and happy.

Austin also visited the doctors and we were shocked to find out he was 10 lbs 5 oz. He is growing so fast. He now is having 1-2 oz of apple juice a day which he loves and for the most part is sleeping through the night averaging 6-8 hours at a time. We are very excited to this new talent and enjoy our happy little baby when he wakes up from 8 hours of sleep. Austin also got to take his first vacation. Dan and Katie invited us up to Hubbard Lake where we had an awesome time with them. Austin got to hang out with Nathan and even went swimming for the first time.

Austin is now 2 months old and he is doing so many things. He has great control over his head and is a very nosey little baby. He is now making lots of noise and "talking" quite a bit. He has discovered his thumb and much to my dismay, finds it very enjoyable during his nap. This is one fight I am afraid I have lot and just hope is a phase he is going through. Today was Austin's first day of "school". He is going to Little Turtle School two days a week. Austin seemed to really like it.

Every student seems to get their picture on the turtle out front, so Austin had to on his first day

I am still fighting the Thumb Wars with Aniston. She won't suck her thumb without her blankie, so we have tried taking that away but it doesn't work. She will run in the house, grab her blanket, get a few quick sucks on the thumb and then go back out to play. I'm not sure when it will end. I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel!!!
