What I Love About My 19 Month Old

I haven't done one of these in a while. My little Austin is growing and changing so much these days. There are so many things I love about this age!

  • I love when he asks, with the most inquizative little expression on his face, "Wha-doin Ma?"
  • I love that he is now mostly calling me "MA"
  • I love that his vocabulary has EXPLODED and he can tell you anything he wants, from a Banana, to Yogurt! I can't even tell you how many words he has now!
  • I love how he tries to sing along with Madison in the car, everything from Barney to Taylor Swift!
  • I love how he cannot wear socks without putting on shoes! They do go together!
  • I love how when we pull into the garage he tenses up and gets SO EXCITED anticipating Daddy running out to meet us! And the look of shear LOVE that spreads over his entire face when he sees him!
  • I love how he now close-mouthed kisses and even makes the "MUAH" sound when he kisses you!
  • I love how he loves to be outside! Any excuse to be outside will do, even taking out the trash! Little does he know some day he will HATE that chore!
  • I love how he LOVES to DANCE! He will rock out with the best of them, to any music he hears! TV Commercials, TV show theme songs (Thank you Big Bang Theory for the great opening song!), Rap Music on MTVJAMS, very OLD country in the car with Daddy, ANYTHING with a beat he is good to go!
  • I love how he shortens the names of his favorite things! His favorite blanket = "Blank", his favorite jacket = "Jack"

This little guy has stolen my heart! With his sweet little face and his charming disposition! He is such an easy kid and a true joy to be around!

A Sunday Afternoon

3 Kids Off to the Park to Play!!

Ride Em Cowboy!
Strike a Pose Maddie!
Still needs a little help from Daddy...sometimes! :-)
He already likes his caps backwards...scary! LOL!!
So we had a nice afternoon at the park, playing and enjoying the warm (while cloudy) afternoon!

New Adventure

For those of you that don't know I recently decided to become a Homemade Gourmet Consultant (you know, in my spare time!) I've been using their products for years and I love them! You add the fresh ingredients, and their mixes do the rest! I decided to add a blog dedicated to HG in association with my HG website,! I'm going to use this other blog to update you all on favorite recipes, and anything else HG! So check it out! I'll be posting my most favorite (and Hoffman modified) HG recipe on there later today!

Austin got a HAIRCUT!!

Where, OH Where has my little boy gone??? And WHO took his CURLS????

He still has a few in the back! But my how he looks like a real "Big Boy" with his new haircut! Yesterday Daddy took Austin to his hair place for a haircut! When Mommy showed up there he was in Daddy's lap, wearing a Spiderman cape, and they were cutting away! OH I could have CRIED, but he looks so great!!

So Sweet...

When they are asleep...

Sometimes you come home from school and pass out on the couch! It's hard work to be 19 months old!

And sometimes you play until you can play no more!
