Dear Austin: Ten Weeks & Eleven Weeks

Dear Austin,

So sorry that Mommy has been a little behind on writing letters to you.  We’ve survived the past few weeks without grandparent help but it does make it harder for Mommy to find time to fit everything in.

Every day, you just become cuter and bigger and your personality is really shining through.  At the beginning of your tenth week, you had your 2 month shots.  Mommy was really afraid that they would hurt you so badly and you’d be in a sour mood all that day.  However, when you got the shot, you cried at injection but stopped like 5 seconds later!  The day you got the shots, you just slept a lot but there wasn’t a sign of you being more fussy.  And honestly ever since that day, it became easier to form a schedule for you and you became a better sleeper!  😀

Maybe the sleeping well was attributed to all the fun you had every day that week.  Aunt Stephanie and Uncle Sean came to visit for a few days and you loved playing with them!  We went to go eat burgers, fries, and macarons at the Plaza, and you were even my personal shopper afterwards.  Well actually you slept through the entire trip and only opened your eyes a few times.  Uncle Sean started having you practice your standing skills and we think you are pretty strong in your legs already!  On the last evening of their stay, we went out to a Japanese restaurant to celebrate a few Uncle’s birthdays.  You got to meet and hang out with so many more of Mommy and Daddy’s friends.

And week eleven was ALL about the smiles.   Mommy and Daddy know exactly how to make you laugh and smile and we make you do so all the time.  Your little right cheek dimple just melts my heart.  Our routine became to feed you every 5.5 oz every 4-5 hours or so.  And guess what!?  This week you had a 7 hour and an 8.5 hour stretch of sleep at night, AMAZING!!!!  I guess getting enough sleep (and enough to eat) just makes you a happier baby all around, right?  Let’s keep that up, k?

And lastly, this week you had your first date with your girlfriend, Aspen.  Here’s just one of the 200+ pictures that Mommy took.  You two are both showing off some Calikatrina bows.  Will share some more photos in another post!


P.S. Last day to enter the Goodmarvin $40 credit giveaway!!
