I took a few minutes to get some shots of Austin on his 5 month birthday. He is such a SWEET boy.

A few things about our MAN:
  • He LOVES his tongue. He sticks it out or chews on it constantly.
  • He is all SMILES and the HAPPIEST baby as long as you are directly talking to him.
  • If I put him on his belly her rolls to his back IMMEDIATELY. Austin may have been 10 weeks early, but he isn't about to be left behind.
  • LOVES windows.
  • If he's on the floor he picks up his bum and back and pushes his way around with his legs.
  • Austin tries to eat his WHOLE hand all the time. It makes the funniest noises.
  • He loves to go swimming in the tub.
  • He always calms down when MILLIE sings to him. His favorite is "I Told Every Little Star".
  • I get his BIGGEST smiles by making his legs RUN and talking in a HIGH pitched voice.
  • Austin wants to be STANDING constantly. Millie was the same way.
  • Best of all he is a MAMA'S BOY!

Austin I love you and I am grateful you are in our family. When I am having an unbearable day your smiles dry up my tears. Thank you.

he is so handsome!!!! Did you take those pictures yourself? I need to learn to take better pictures! I can't believe how well he is doing. My babies still don't consistently roll over and they are 1 month older than Austin!

ya, i took the pixs (i really need to set up photoshop! i just use picasa). there's good lighting in my dining room, so i pushed everything out and ploped him down. it was hard to get him to smile, he wasn't crazy about the hard floor.

Your pictures just get better and better. Of course, beautiful subjects never hurt :) He's a doll, still haven't met him in person :(

I said it before, I'll say it again, you have skills! He is seriously adorable. I wish we lived closer so we could hang out with the kiddos. Happy 5 months, Austin!
