Happy 5 Months Austin!

Austin another month has passed and you continue to grow and learn new things everyday! Here are some things you are up to this month...

You weigh 16lbs and I have no idea how long you are. You are in 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. You are getting so big! You go to sleep between 7:30 and 8 then sleep about 8 hours. Then you wake up to eat and go back to sleep. During the day you eat 5-6oz every 3 hours and take 3-4 naps. 

Some things you are loving right now are playing with your big brother, anything that has to do with your Daddy (you just stare at him whenever you hear his voice), putting any and everything in your mouth, and playing with toys.

Some things you are not loving right now are getting lotion put on your face, getting your nose wiped, and sleeping on your back.

You can now roll over from stomach to back and back to stomach. You can get up on all fours and rock back and forth. You are so close to crawling!! You can get to where you want to go by throwing yourself forward. I can't wait for you to crawl! It will be so fun when you can chase after your big brother. It will be very soon. You are also working hard at sitting up and are very close to doing that as well.

Austin you are such a joy to be around. You are very easy going and love to be social. You barely cry...seriously. Only if you are super sleepy or hungry. You seem like you are going to be the type that goes with the flow. But whatever you are going to be like, know that you are loved!

2013 Review in Pictures

These are pictures from some of the great times the Franks Family had this past year. It was a year full of showers, weddings, birthdays, vacations, and births. Definitely a great year!

So long 2013 its been fun! Can't wait to see what 2014 will bring us!

Christmas Recap

So this is a little late. I thought I would have more time to blog being off from work for two weeks but... things don't always go as planned with two little ones. My parents came up Christmas Eve and spent the night with us. We woke up Christmas morning and opened presents then headed up to Jason's parents for Christmas lunch. This year was really fun because Brantley actually understood presents and that he would be able to open them on Christmas. He woke up at 3:30 asking if it was time to open presents yet. Thankfully he went back to sleep until 6:30, which that is the normal time he wakes up. No joke. He has always been an early riser. I blame it on my teaching job which causes us to leave the house at 6:30 every morning. But back to Christmas...here are some pictures that captured our fun times!

We really did have a good day. Jason had been working a ton leading up to Christmas so it was great to have a whole day with him. The boys got way more toys than they needed, but it was fun to see their family want to bless them with gifts. It took a few days after Christmas with all the new toys to get my house reorganized. Christmas always comes and goes way too fast. Brantley still can't quite understand that it is only a day and still asks if it is Christmas. This weekend we are going up to my sister's house to celebrate Christmas so we have some more fun ahead of us!
