Dear Austin: Fourteen and Fifteen Weeks

Dear Austin,

Can you just stop growing for a little bit and stay a baby please?  In these past few weeks, we’ve started to call you a “little person” or “little man” instead of a “baby”.  You are seriously growing up too fast right in front of our eyes.  It’s been awhile since you’ve been to the doctor’s office, but we think you are about 14 pounds now.  And you’re really starting to give Mommy’s arms a run for their money.  In terms of clothing, you are on the brink of being too big for 3 months clothing and wearing some clothing in 6 months size already!  The Petit Singe onesie was given to you by Mommy’s friend, Amy, who lives in Paris.  So having a picture with your Daddy (who is a monkey in the Chinese zodiac) and your brother JoJo was kind of mandatory.  I love my 3 little monkeys soooo much!

When we first put you in your Bumbo chair a few weeks ago, you weren’t a huge fan.  But lately, you’re getting more and more used to this chair.  You love to lounge in it while your neck muscles grow stronger.  πŸ™‚

During this 14th week, you also celebrated your First Easter.  It was the perfect chance to dress you up in all things bunny.  Bunny ears, bunny onesie… and you got to play with all your bunny friends.  Your Grandma and Mommy joined in on the fun as well.

You also had your first Zoo visit with Audrey and Wesley!  Although you were too young to appreciate it, we hope to be bringing you back to the Zoo often as you grow up!  You also got to meet Uncle Bryce and Kurt this week too, Uncle Bryce was back visiting from Australia!

During week fifteen, we discovered Peek a Boo as our new favorite game to make you giggle.  You are a serious giggle monster, and we can’t get enough of it.

You had a play date with one of your best friends, Wesley.  Wesley is a boy, but is confident enough already at 5 months to wear pink.  He loves to roll over and that’s one of the milestones we hope you meet soon!

We’ve come to the Conclusion that you love to play.  Playing with other babies, kids, adults… even if you are way in need of a nap, you’ll stay up to play.  As you grow up, that’s something we may need to discipline you on.  Homework first, play second.  Work hard, play hard.  OK, I think I’m getting ahead of myself here.  Anyways, I love you to pieces and don’t stop giggling!  πŸ™‚

    awe Sandy! you look so much like your pretty mama! I love your bunny shirt, how cute are you~??! Also, I love Austin’s “bunny” hat/beanie. I have a love for animal hats and still try to get my 4 yr old to wear them with her sister keke. Austin is so precious and so cute, they really do grow up so fast!!

    aww, love all the pictures! I can’t wait for Audrey and Wesley to have another play date with Austin. Wesley can definitely teach him how to roll over! He’s rolling over like crazy, makes it so hard at diapering and changing clothes. Be prepared with all these little adventures when Austin is ready to roll over! OK, he’s rolled from my bed’s head board to foot board now, but I put a pillow at the foot board, so he’s comfortably leaning on that pillow.

    Aww. I love seeing all the pictures of your son. He is too cute. Thank you so much for sharing your little precious one with us.

    Fantastic photos! I love watching how much he grows from week to week on that cute little lion pillow. It’s crazy how different babies can be — my little guy is only 16lbs at a year old, and your little guy is almost as big as him!

  13. April 19, 2012 / 9:14 pm

    Love these posts! Your little man is too adorable!

  14. April 19, 2012 / 9:18 pm

    Oh yes, sadly enough time goes by way too fast! That’s why you have to enjoy every second you can with your handsome little baby boy πŸ™‚ Baby A is such a cutie! πŸ™‚

    Austin, stop growing so your mommy can enjoy you being a little bitty baby!

  16. April 19, 2012 / 10:31 pm

    aw, these was such a sweet letter – and the pictures made me giggle…esp his friend who is already so confident in his manhood to rock out in pink. πŸ˜‰
