Baby Baby Baby

Here are some more pictures of Austin. He is doing really well. His cord finally fell off today. I was really happy because it was sick looking. He has been doing better at nursing and sleeping at night. My Mom suggested we add another layer to keep him warmer and it worked. I think he was just too cold and now he sleeps for four hour stretches instead of two.

My Mom made him an Indian costume because of his dark hair and olive skin tone. We tried it on him and he got really mad. I don't think he liked it very much. If you click on the picture to make it bigger you can see his face and how upset he is.

I haven't sent out his baby announcements because I'm getting his picture taken on Saturday at JcPennys and I want to see if I want to use that picture or one I've taken.

And just for old times sake I'm going to list my classes I'm taking this semester. I'm taking home and family management and so far it is really easy and boring and early in the morning. I figured I wouldn't mind getting up early because lets face it, I'm up anyway. I'm also taking home decor sewing. I'm excited about this class because I will be able to learn how to make drapes and table cloths and pillows and bed coverings. My other two classes are Introduction to organizational communication and media strategy planning. They will both be a little more challenging than my other two classes but not overwhelming. I'm also taking time management and concentration online for .5 credits each just to give me 12 credits.

Darling pics, thanks for posting them for us. We can't wait to see him at the blessing! Where does the black hair and olive skin come from, anyway?

What a cute costume!!! Your mom did great! I'd be interested to know what you study in your organizational communications class... anything interesting? Sometimes I have a weird itch to take classes again. Glad to hear he's sleeping better and eating better! It makes life so much easier!

What a perfect mix of Jeff and Brielle I see in him! It is going to be so fun watching him grow.
