Merry Christmas

We wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Here are a few pictures for the Grandparents. I thought it would be really cute to take a picture of Austin in a stocking, but he was too big for the traditional sized stocking. I'm pretty sure a toddler could also fit into this sock... Maybe I'll take a better picture with the next baby. :) He woke up! Do Grandma and Grandpa want an Austin for Christmas?

One Month Old

Austin is now one month old! I can't believe he has been here for a whole month. Wow! He's over 12 pounds now and growing strong! He's such a cutie... not that we're partial at all... Here are a few more photos. It probably looks like we just sit around and take pictures all day... and that isn't too far off. We took another step today back into "real" life. We got Austin dressed up and we all went to church. He looked so darn cute that we had to take lots of pictures. It has been really fun to watch Austin's small steps of development. His smiles are still spontaneous, but they are coming more often. (I think they are still due to gas, but hey, a smile is a smile.) He has also been working on focusing on our faces and holding his head up. We actually had a hard time snapping some of these photos because Austin has a favorite spot that he likes to stare at. We have no idea what his fascination is with staring at the back of the couch, but it is his favorite. I try not to let my feelings get hurt that he likes to look at the couch more than my face. Oh well. :) Austin was lucky enough to have Grandma Rinda come for the weekend. He has gotten lots of hugs and kisses this week and he loves it. Thanks for coming Grandma! Lastly, this is one of our favorite outfits. It has a little moose on the front - fitting that we call him our little moose. Thank you so much Ashley and Ryan!

A few of our firsts...

I think people really just want to see pictures of Austin- so here he is! We've been having lots of fun with our little guy. We're all pretty sleepy, but I think that's to be expected with a newborn. Here is our 1st Thanksgiving 1st time meeting Grandpa Royce 1st time meeting Uncle Jeff 1st bath- I think he had just eaten judging by his belly bulge.

The WORST theme song ever!

We saw this commercial tonight and couldn't remember ever hearing a worse theme song! We laughed and laughed. We even thought it was blogworthy... That's saying something. :) Just so you can sing along... here are the lyrics. Clap On. Clap Off. Clap on- Clap off. The clapper. Short and sweet- don't you think?
