I also had to go through her clothes and officially pack up all of her newborn and size 0-3 month clothes. She is wearing 3-6 month clothes, and I feel like she will quickly grow out of these.
Will loves it when she talks to him and is always so excited to tell me what Austin has said. I love the look she is giving him in the picture.
She has also started to giggle. It's not a super common occurrence yet, but it has happened several times. She is ticklish by her neck and her legs, though most of the time when I try to tickle her she isn't sure how to react. Every once in a while, I will get a giggle though, and it is the best sound. Will is constantly asking me to make Austin laugh. We all love that sound.
Funny story: One time when I was checking out at the grocery store, the cashier asked me what my baby's name was. I told her it was Austin. She kind of mulled it over, but didn't really react one way or the other. Then she turns and asks what my other daughter's name is. I say Blake. Immediately she says uh-oh and what is your boy's name. When I told her Will, her response was, "Oh good. If you had said Lucy I would have had to take you out back or something!" It was great. I know everyone might not love the names we have picked, but I absolutely adore them. I expect to get odd looks and responses, but it doesn't change how much I love their names.
She has some goofy expressions and it is always fun when you capture them on camera.
I have started putting her in the bumbo for short periods of time. Sometimes she loves it and will sit and talk and smile. Other times she arches her back and screams until you take her out. She can hold her head fairly well, but I don't leave her in there for too long cause I can tell she starts getting tired.
Austin is constantly turning her head back and forth. Especially when she is tired, she will toss and turn her head, like she isn't quite comfortable. I read somewhere that it is a common way for babies to try and fight sleep. Anyways, she does it A LOT. She has a nice bald spot on the back of her head as a result. Neither of my other kids ever got bald spots so this is new territory for me.
Austin has also found her hands and has started to play with them and suck on them constantly. One time Lance and I were cuddling on the couch, kissing here and there, when suddenly it sounded like Austin was making kissing noises at us. We both burst up laughing. She was sucking on her fist, but it seriously sounded like she was teasing us with kissing noises.
She still loves bath time, though I think she is starting to grow out of her tub. It's fun to look at her pictures in the tub from a while ago and see just how much she has grown. It's crazy to me.
Austin is a lot of fun to have around. It has been interesting adjusting to three kids, but so far I think we are doing well. There are some nights where I'm ready to go to bed, and start to get ready then I realize that she is still awake and I can't go to bed until after she goes to sleep. But I love all of the little moments I have with her throughout the day. Any time I am feeling a little down or sad, I just have to look at her and she'll give me a giant smile. It makes everything better.
