But, the upside, ( because yes there are downsides, like no money, no non dog and toddler time etc..) is that I get to spend all the time in the world with Austin, and everyday there is something new to smile about, to laugh about, he learns so quickly, and mimics EVERYTHING!!!
And ask my mother, she is the one I talk to most often on the telephone, I could flap my gums about Austin and what he is doing allll day long. And I do, I mean I flap them about other stuff too, but mostly Austin.
His new thing is, playing in his room, with Abby, and with the door shut. Its really adorable. I had to, of course, call my mother to see if this was normal, because this kid usually only plays with toys wherever we are hanging out, either the kitchen or livingroom. But this week, the door is closed, and I go check on him, hes talking to Abby, and playing alone. I find it adorable.
|sitting at his table, eating cheese its ( reduced fat and sodium)|
|notice the ball, abbys ball, Austin seems to think its HIS ball.|
|but having it with him insures that she will follow him EVERYWHERE|
|notice what's in his lap..|
|notice the smile|
|he doesnt always want to throw the ball|
|but somtimes does.. as long as she brings it right back|
|she makes him smile..|
for a little while.
|he was crying because she again, tried to take 'his' ball|
|in mid air|
|he makes me wear the ears.|
All in all, I love these days where I can spend time with my little boy.
But still cant wait to have a job!!
