One Big Kid


No, not me, my nephew. The most adorable child in the world who loves his toes. (And his blog. Heh heh.) But he's not even six months and he's already eighteen pounds. When my PT taught me how to carry that weight around safely- well, boxes don't move. It's "Okay, Austin, let Auntie Nettie put her knee braces on and we'll go up and down the driveway. Again."

He really is smart, though. I was visiting him at Melissa's in-laws, they were all going to a wedding. His grandparents took him about five Friday, but Melissa left a few hours before for the rehearsal. It wasn't two minutes after she did and he was bawling. Separation anxiety isn't supposed to happen until nine months, but what can I say? Just that I would do anything for him.

I wish we retained that flexibility.

my oldest daughter was almost 10 lbs. at six months, but she was a premmie. this has nothing to do with this blog, well, maybe it does, but anyway, i followed the link to see your cutie pie, but where is the rest of the blog, all i keep finding are links to the other posts, where do i find the main part of the blog?

It's under my "Doesn't this random scattering of sites seem desperately random?" section, or you can just go here. I think you'll enjoy the rest of it, too, cause I archived every post and picture I've done of him. I mean, clever Austin archived all the entries about him.

Isn't it Nettie who usually sticks her foot in her mouth?

He sure is a cutie, Nettie!

Does he wear socks? If so, is Jammy eating toe jam?

Maybe his secondary nickname can be Tasty Toes.

What a little sweetheart.
I remember when I could bring my toes up to my face too, but I don't remember that I ever tried to suck my toes.
The thought of trying to bring my foot to my face now, at my age, makes me feel like my bones would all shatter!

Wow, he's cute! They should feed him more often, though. Eventually these tykes end up chewing off a limb if they get too hungry, and that can make it difficult to find back-to-school clothes that fit well.
