Austin month 20

Little man-
You are now 20 months old. You are becoming so independent. You want to feed yourself, try to put on your shoes, change your clothes, put on your own seatbelt and brush your hair. You are loving the warm weather and you are always outside. It's April and you already have a awesome tan. Dad has been mowing the lawn and you love to follow right behind him and push your scooter. You LOVE the red jeep. First thing in the morning you ask to go look at it. You just want to go for a ride. If it is in the barn and you can't see it, you will bring me the iPad to show you pictures of it. Your favorite word is more.... More food.... More balls ... Everything is more. You are such a big helper with Charli. If she is crying I can count on you to run over to her and try to make her stop by either finding a binky or bringing a toy. You will squat down and do the baby jibberish ( I think you watch me alot). You like to take baths until we wash your hair.... Then it's game over. You do not like help brushing your teeth or combing your hair. You still have a binky at night when you go to bed. As soon as you wake up it gets thrown back in your crib. You are our little cuddler. Most days I get random hugs and kisses ( we love it). Thanks for being so much fun. I love you!

Month 5

Hi little miss! I know I say this every month but.... The last 5 months have flown by so fast. You are getting so fun each day. You are so happy! You love to hear yourself jabber... And you like to jabber loud. Your little giggle is So contagious. You love to play peek a boo. You get scared really easy. You pout your lip and then you don't know if you want to cry or laugh. You like to be around people or outside. You don't want to miss a thing. You like to go for stroller rides. You and Austin face each other in the stroller and you don't take your eyes off him. If he laughs you laugh. You two are my two peas in a pod. Your starting to drink out of your bottle so good. You nurse at all feedings except after your afternoon nap and then you have formula. you take 3-4 naps a day 2 or 3 are short 30 min naps and 1 your 1 o'clock nap lasts 2 + hours. I love you baby girl! I have no idea what I would do without you.


Easter is so much fun with a toddler. We went to 3 different parties. First party we went to was Grandma Kinsey's. We ate dinner and had a little Easter egg hunt down stairs since it was bad weather. Austin and Pais loved it. The second party we went to is great grandma Kinsey's. Austin has 30 plus cousins and we had a huge egg hunt between my mom and grandma house and the fields. The third party we went to was grandma Wildes. By this party Austin was pro at finding eggs. What a fun holiday that lasted 2 weeks... Lol! Austin is way into Thomas the train so the Easter bunny brought some fun new Thomas toys and clothes. And Charli of course was all excited about her clothes and teething toys. Jess helped Austin and I color eggs this year. Austin liked to color with a crayon but he didn't want to dunk them in the colored water. Happy Easter!
