0 years 0 months 3 weeks 6 days

Dear Austen,

Happy Saturday! Daddy is still in bed, you and I got up at 6:30 and came out to the couch. You're napping right now as I enjoy my coffee and write this.
We didn't intend to, but have been cosleeping more these days. You sleep so much better when you're near us, so even though it's a bit cramped, it works! Whenever you stir, I only need to rub your back and you settle back to sleep.

Today we are going to a BBQ at the Emry's. Jason was born the same week as you, and we haven't seen him yet, so I'm excited to meet him today. It'll also be the first time we've gone to visit someone other than your Grandparents or Uncle Carl and Aunt Jess' house. We'll see how well you behave!

We're still supplementing with formula, though you've grown rather impatient with breastfeeding since the bottle feeds you so much faster! Overall, you don't really care what you get as long as it's food, and last night you ate 5 oz of formula before bed! I think you're going through a growth spurt, all you've been doing the past few days is eat and sleep! I think you're gonna be a chunky little fellow!

We've been suffering from thrush for the past week or so, and yours is looking so much better as of yesterday! We started to infect each other, so I'm glad yours is healing. It has really helped your fussiness. You really have a fantastic personality! Such moods! Always getting a laugh from us as you take in the world around you!

As always, looking forward to another day of you and your developing dexterity and maturity! Each day you seem more like a little man and less of a newborn!

With Love,
