Half a Year
I decided that it was a good time to get some pictures of him. Our living room, where Austin spends most of his awake time, doesn't have the best lighting for photography. The covered porch (which I love) makes it a tad dark. Anyway, I thought I'd take him outside.
The weather was beautiful, Austin was happy. This was going to be a good session, I could tell already. I put down a blanket, flipped on the camera and got Austin settled. He, however, had other ideas.
Apparently, the great outdoors is full of distractions. Like wind.
He kept insisting on going over to the grass, even though he didn't seem to like the way it felt.
Austin has been "this close" to crawling for weeks. He can get up on all fours, move his arms, move his legs, but not all at the same time. He boot camp crawls pretty well, though, so he is mobile.
Toward the end, he started doing this little frustrated squeal. Not crying, just saying, "Help! Mommy won't stop trying to get me to smile!"
