Austin likes to keep busy all day. He spends most of his time dumping out his toy bin or taking all his books off his shelf and then trying to put them back. Mostly they end up not being put back.
He likes to "help" me keep my paper tote organized by taking everything out. I have some stencils in there he really likes. Austin also likes to pet Choloe the kitty. He will give her kisses if you ask him to.
Jeff showed him that some of his pants have pockets so he likes to put as many things as he can in his pockets. Sometimes he puts toys down his onsie and when I change him for bed I'll find cars or dominoes stuck to his chest. He cracks me up.
Yesterday while I was exercising Austin was running around the family room and he tripped and hit his head on the coffee table. I was shocked when I picked him up to find a lump the size of a golf ball on his forehead. I thought his head was going to start bleeding too but it never did. I don't think it broke all the way through the skin. He was pretty upset until I got the camera out to take a picture. He is doing just fine now. I called the on-call nurse at my dr's office and she said he probably didn't have a concussion since he didn't vomit. She just told me to keep an eye on him and make sure he didn't sleep too long. He didn't take a nap at all yesterday so it was a long day. We are just happy he is ok. I'm going to hold off on getting his 18 month pictures taken though.
This year for Valentines day Jeff got me a dozen roses. I was very surprised and excited. I've only received a few flowers from him and I've always wanted a dozen roses. He gets an A+ this year. Austin got a valentine from the Valentine Fairy. She used to bring me and my siblings chocolates every Valentines Day. Austin seemed to like his Valentine present.
I saw a picture of a Turkey Skirt online and I thought it was so cute I had to try to make it. Unfortunately I don't have a little girl to make a skirt for. I decided I could still make it and just give the skirt away. I have two lovely nieces so instead of having to pick one to give the skirt to I made two. I think the pink one turned out better because it was the second one I made. Sorry Renee, I hope you still like your purple turkey skirt.
In case you didn't already know I have a card blog. I like to upload pictures of cards I've made and share techniques I use. It is also nice to have a place where I can go to get ideas and remember what I've already done. I also take card orders. I've had mostly family order cards from me so they don't have to remember to go buy a card every time it is someone's birthday. I just make them a bulk order and send them all at once. I would like to thank everyone who has been following my blog with a card giveaway. Thats right...one lucky follower will win not One...but FIVE cards and envelopes. Click on the "My Cards" link and follow the directions on my card blog.
