All About Austin

Little Man is now 19 months old and a joy to have. He keeps Andrew and I laughing everyday. He's really developing quite the sense of humor and has been cracking little jokes everyday. He's obsessed with Horses, Cows, Airplanes, and Cars, but mainly the vacuum or "Wackuum". Usually children call for Mommy or Daddy in the morning to come and get them from the crib. Not Austin. He yells "Wack-uuuuuume"
At his 18 month appointment (which was actually at 19 months) I think he was about 33 inches and 27 lbs. I can't remember if that was his exact height, but I do know that he was in the 95% for height and 65% for weight. Pregnancy brain, right?
Speaking of the new baby- Austin is learning to say baby. He actually think that my belly button is called "baby". He also thinks that he and Andrew also have babies. I took him to a friends house the other day and he got to meet his first small baby. He was fascinated, and he kept sweetly petting the baby's head and saying "oooooooooh". It gives me renewed faith that having two kids is doable.
Let's be honest, I already have two kids. I think that three kids are manageable. My boys sure love each other. Austin lights up at the end of the day when Daddy gets home. He's the fun parent at our house. A picture is worth 1,000 words- so I'll leave it with that.

Rocky Mountain High, Colorado!

We have spent the last few days in Vail and Aspen... Austin free!
It has been wonderful to escape the heat of Texas. We stayed for one night in Vail and enjoyed walking around Vail Village and checking out the Betty Ford Botanical gardens. If you're ever needing a break along I-70 I highly recommend going there!
I don't know what I was thinking wearing flip flops because it was still cold! After a wonderful day in Vail we moved on to Aspen. Aspen is SO beautiful! It's been so nice to travel to these places during the off season. It's been a little less ritzy and a little more local.
We rented scooters and traveled up to the Maroon Bells. Don't we look intimidating?
Beautiful! I think I could handle coming back!

Memorial Day Run= Death!

Happy Memorial Day! Andrew and I decided to do the Bolder Boulder (a 10k run... or in our case walk.) I have no idea what we were thinking. I'm 16 weeks pregnant, at a higher altitude, and haven't done much strenuous exercise for the past 2 years. It is now Wednesday and I'm still paying for Monday. On the upside... Andrew got to fully experience Boulder. Since I was keeping him at such a slow pace he really got to check out the bands, and belly dancers on the sidelines of the race. Now that I'm done complaining- we actually had a really good time. Next time, I think we'll train a little bit more.
