Great weekend to play in the park!

West Austin Neighborhood Park.

Saturday we headed to West Austin Neighborhood Park. With a fenced in doggie area, toddler play area, swing set, picnic tables, a pool and a couple large grassy areas, it had something for all of us! After 10 days of cold, rainy weather, Christian, Kodi and especially mommy, we thrilled to be outside!

Kodi was on his best behavior and Christian laughed as he watched all the doggies play. Even with a couple new top teeth causing a bit of discomfort, Christian enjoyed the swings and of course playing in the dirt. His new favorite face is fish lips, especially while eating. Emily and Elly joined us. Great day!

An afternoon at Mueller

Sunday we ventured to the East side of Austin to meet Roman, Max, Jae and Brook at Mueller. We took advantage of the farmer's market and then strolled around the lake. Perfect day to be outside! Christian and Roman visited and caught up on the latest news as it had been a few weeks since they'd seen each other. Roman's hair is fabulous and he has a bunch of teeth! Christian is sporting 4 teeth and some front curls.

Max & Kodi stood guard and chomped on some treats from the Farmer's market. Another perfect day!

November 2014 – Christian’s recap

November was a busy month. I turned 8 months.

The weather in Austin started off unseasonably warm and we spent time in the backyard on our new chairs. Finally it cooled off just in time for Auntie Leslie to visit. Perfect nap weather for all of us including the cats. Auntie Leslie and mommy tried to be creative and use my hand to make Santa Christmas ornaments.

Mommy, daddy and I traveled to Marshfield to visit Grammy for Thanksgiving week. Grammy gave me a new bear outfit to wear in the cold weather. It came in quite handy!

We went to the mall to have my picture taken with Santa but he was pretty scary. I preferred to be with mommy and daddy and with all the girls (Aunt Melissa and Peyton, Kim and Sydney). We all had lunch after at California Pizza Kitchen. I had tortilla soup.

Aunt Mimi and Uncle Joey came to visit me and brought me cool new toys. I love presents.

Since Grammy was recovering from hip surgery, she and I hung out a lot. We had breakfast together everyday.

On the day we left it snowed!

Christian’s 6 month birthday celebration

The day began with bananas for breakfast. We then set off for a ride on the Zilker Zephyr followed by a snow cone. Carrots and applesauce for dinner. And of course a cake that mom and day will enjoy. Happy 6 month birthday Master C.
Christian's Baptism Attire

Master C is Baptized

We celebrated Christian's Baptism on the beach Sunday August 24.  The weather was beautiful; a perfect day.  Grammy made Christian's Baptismal outfit. Aunt Jodi made his booties and Grammy's knitting group made a beautiful blanket. Peyton (Godmother) and Melissa designed a ceramic bowl when they visiting Christian in Austin in April to use as the 'chalice'. We used ocean water (of course) and a shell.nnAfter the ceremony, we all gathered at The Fairview for dinner.  It was a great occasion. Here are some a few moments.
