I made a little video with the pictures of Addison from when she was born. The beginning is a little fast but I needed to make it that way so certain pictures were showing when parts of the song was on. The song is called , "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. I have to say I really love it!! From what I understand he wrote it because his first daughter grew up to fast and so he wrote it for his second daughter.

Austin loves his cars! We took all of them out today and sorted them. I did most of the work and he helped! He has a total of 86 cars. We are missing two. He wanted to leave them out in the middle of the floor so everyone can see them. Below is the video of him naming all the ones he knows which is almost all of them.

You may have noticed I have posted a lot of videos. There are two reasons for that. 1} Austin loves to video tape himself and watch it on TV 2} I am just getting around to playing with my Flip Camera that I got for Christmas. Its real fun!!

Q & A with Austin Michael Big Brother

I did a little question and answer thing with Austin today. I thought it was pretty funny. He has great facial expressions. It is about 5 minutes long. Towards the end he tells a great story about the tornado in Caroline's backyard. I did the same questions about a hour later and he had a couple different answers but mostly the same.

4th of July Weekend

The fourth of July Weekend was really fun! On Saturday, we had our families over to watch the fireworks that our neighborhood puts on. Austin loves watching the fireworks with Caroline. Anytime throughout the year if he sees fireworks he always brings up that he watches fireworks with Caroline.

In the morning we went over to Grandma and Grandpa's and played in the sprinklers with Caroline and Alayna.

Sunday night we watched fireworks with the Boards. Austin had a lot of fun! Addison slept through the fireworks but next year she will enjoy them. :)

Two Months

Im a little late but Addison is two months old now!! She is getting so big! She know weighs 11 lbs. 8 oz and is 22 inches long. Big girl!
Addison is starting baby talk and laugh. We get a lot of smiles too! She really enjoys smiling at her big brother. Austin loves to talk to her while I change her diaper.

The next Napoleon Dynamite

I was watching Napoleon Dynamite today and the dance scene came on. Austin started dancing to it. It was HILARIOUS!!! I had to get the camera out and video him. He has some skills I tell you! At one point in the video he does the splits! Did not know he could do that! Im glad I signed him up for tumbling!!

Swimming Lessons

Austin had swimming lessons the past two weeks. He did a great job! He did not like life jacket day. He had a hard time leaning his body the correct way. He kept leaning forward which made him go face first in the water which was really scary for him. Here is a video of some of the activities they did on Friday. His teacher, Mr. Chris (in the white glasses) took him down the slide twice. Before class I told him he was going to do that and Austin said it wasn't a good idea. But, he really enjoyed it and talked about the slide all day. I am hoping to take him swimming a couple more times this summer but need someone to watch the little one. Any volunteers?? :)
