16 & 17 Months

"He will be a year and a half next month." That's been my answer for the past few weeks when asked Austin's age. How is he already almost a year and a half? Just one more half and he will be two?! Sometimes I do forget that he's still such a babe- he could fool anyone into thinking that he's well on his way to preschool with his blatant attitude and urgency to brush his teeth twice three times a day. (Wonder how long that will last.) But then I remember that a few weeks ago he tried to down a bottle of bubbles, and just this morning he mistook his snot for lotion. Yep, he's definitely only one (and almost a half).

This past week was the first of Austin's month long "Summer Vacation." We're giving him a four week break from morning school to enjoy some extra time with his grandma who is home for the summer... I may also have secret hopes that he will decide to sleep in one of these days... Austin if you're reading this- hint, hint. Oh, and he's been sick every month since January. Soooo there's that. Pediatrician three times just this month. Yeah. So I hope this time off gives his immune system a break!

Sick or not, the kid can rock it.
Favorite Activities: Reading- mostly I Ruff You. I have it memorized. Swimming in the big pool, as well as sliding down his slide into his baby pool. Imitating everything I do. He is obsessed with headbands and carrying shopping bags around the house on his shoulder. Juan, you need to come home and take this boy fishing. ;)

Babe is an excellent shopper. Lately he's been going on his own little shopping trips around the house. What's a trip to "Target" without our Starbucks? And can we please talk about that "purse" he wrapped around himself? Thank goodness he couldn't actually find one and grabbed a lifeguard whistle instead. But really, Juan. Come. Home.
Austin is finally down for his morning nap, then we'll be on our way to the weekend Farmer's Market and later hit up a ginormous sale at the kid's consignment shop! #bargainhunters

Happy first day of Summer! Cheers!
