Austin has been flirting with crawling the past week or so. When we were on our cruise, and he was with his Memaw, and pop he learned to get up on all four. Gradually he began to rock, and little by little he figured it out!!! The video is on jan 23, the day he really took off. That was the first night he went more than a few steps. He managed to make it all the way across the room to a shelf, reach up, and knock the opened bottle of baby powder off to make a mess. We knew then we were in for it at that moment.

This year for Christmas we got to go down to Texas to spend the holidays with Trav's family. It was such a great time. We were down there for almost 3 weeks!!! We did a little bit of it all! We will post more things to come with all the festivities.
The beauty of being married, is that twice the family means twice the FUN!!!!! Before we went to the blessed land of Texas (God's country as Travis calls it) we were so blessed to be able to do a Christmas celebration with my family as well. We loved it, and this year was the best Christmas yet. It must have something to do with the spirit of children and new experiences for our family. It was so special to have Austin with us this year.
This year we spent thanksgiving with the Morgan side of the family. It was a fantastic time! Uncle Blake and the boys came up, and we all feasted on turkey with all the fixings. After our food settled, we played games and watched some football. That night we decided to brave the crowds and did a little black friday shopping! Travis even came along to carry the bags!
Austin seems to have acquired the hair of his great, great grandmother on his dad's side. She had red hair, and Austin's hair has a slight red tint to it. After 6 months it began to look a little shaggy, so we decided to fix it up! You cant really tell from the before and after photos, but it looked much better.
