Dear Austin: Four Weeks

Dear Austin,

During this past week, lots and lots of things have happened!  First, Aunt Nicole and Aunt Alison came to visit you and you were a good sport throughout the whole visit.  You even let Aunt Nicole hold you without any problem!  Your Lao Lao had to go back home this week and we all truly do miss her, her help was invaluable.  Mommy and Daddy got to spend another weekend alone with you and it was filled with tummy time.  You are able to hold your head up for about 3 seconds now, yay, go Austin!  πŸ™‚  And at the end of this week, your Ah Ma and Ah Gong flew in and met you for the very first time.  It took you no time to warm up to them and give them smiles, I’m guessing receiving red envelopes probably helped.  πŸ˜‰  You also got in some cuddle time with the bunny lovey that kdaviscreates handmade for you as well as your big brother monkey, Jojo.  They are huge fans of yours.

I can’t believe how fast time has flown.  Today is actually your one month birthday (YAY HAPPY ONE MONTH!!), which is a big deal in Chinese culture, so we have a nice celebration planned for you with some more family coming to visit and good food!  Funny thing is, technically if you were born in Taiwan, you’d be considered 2 years old, since they count being in the womb as 1 year and the Chinese New Year as another year grown as well.  People say that before I know it, you’ll be off to college, so let’s stick to saying your one month old!

    Happy 1 mo sweet boy! Korean culture counts the time in mommy’s belly as 1 year too. I guess Asians want to look even better for their age! πŸ˜‰
