Austin James

Austin is so smart. He turned one in April and here I am to brag-- he's been walking since he was 9 months old. He even has his black belt in karate. And speaks Mandarin. 

For real, this kid fits in so well with our family. He and Jack are the purest form of brothers I have ever seen. They'll bug each other and wrestle to the ground, sweaty and rosy-cheeked, and then lay next to each other to watch Spider-Man while sharing a bowl of grapes two minutes later. 

One day I hope Austin will be able to let me use the restroom by myself, but until then I will be content. I'll even let him stand in the dishwasher while I put items away and pull out every nail polish in my bathroom because one day that huge headache will be gone and I know I'll miss it. 

He has the sweetest, toothy grin and lights up when his brother comes into the room and when he hears his daddy at the front door. 

People say that your girls are the ones who will "stay" and bring their children over to be with you, "A son is a son until he gets a wife, a daughter is a daughter for life." So here's to hopefully having amazing daughter in laws! I love these boys of mine too much to let that horrible adage come true.
