Austie update

I feel like, in order to be a "good mom," I need to be giving you updates of Austin's progress.

Like posting pictures, stats from the doctors office, his newest tricks, how many teeth he has...

Since I hardly ever take my kids to the doctor for well checkups --I mean, is it really worth it? Exposing them to the flu, strep, the latest stomach bug, just so the doctor and look at them and say, "Looks like every thing's good, I'll see you in 6 months."

Besides, who can remember to make appointments, and if I did, I'd forget about them till my phone calendar told me I'd just missed it.

So here are some updates on Austin based on what I hear other people say about him:

  • He smells like hot dogs

  • Austin and Oscar are easy names to mix up

  • He has been compared to a piranha

  • His Christmas vacation was spent growing hair

  • He's a typical 3rd-born

  • He's always happy

  • You can tell he's not autistic

  • He puts EVERYTHING in his mouth "He tried to eat one of our Christmas cards"

  • He sure loves avocados

Stats, lets see...

He's got 7 1/2 teeth (the half one I'm not sure if it's broken the skin or not, but you can see it)

Weighs 19 lbs. (If we didn't get anything else out of the ER trip we got a weight measurement)

Size 9 months clothes fit him best.

And... today was his first day of school!

and a bath might get rid of the hotdog smell! =)

oh and the post about austin's er trip - so scary! jillian is the worst baby i've ever been around about putting stuff in her mouth. we had a plastic wrap scare, but thankfully it was over before an er trip!

I'm so glad you posted this!! I feel so much pressure to document and post all those stats about my baby...and I dont even have one yet! Glad to know "smells like hot dogs" will suffice, because really that's the fun stuff people want to know anyway. :) as always, love your blog Becca!
