Austin's 1st Birthday Party!
My cousin's little boy turned a year old.
We got to attend his birthday party on Saturday.
Mommy & Gage, eating cake...
Gage & Austin...in the great toy stare-down...
No Gage, this is NOT yours....it's Austin's. Now go forth & share!
Daddy & Gage playing in their living room...
Austin, how old are you??? That's right, ONE!
A fairly good time was had by all. Gage takes a while to warm up in settings like that. Not to mention the fact that he fell asleep about 5 minutes before we got there.
So Austin's a year old now. He's walking. He points a lot, and REALLY enjoyed all of the balloons at his party.
Austin was born at home. How cool is that? His Mommy & Daddy delivered him with the help of a mid-wife. Racelle (his Mommy) says that she'll deliver future children the same way if she can help it! She shared the pictures with me *(no, I will not be sharing them here!), and it seemed just amazing.
Racelle was pregnant with Austin when I was pregnant with Masyn. She was one of the first phone calls that I made to share the good news, since she would have her baby right before I'd have mine, and we'd get to be pregnant together.
So, it was kind of pecking in the back of my mind while we were there, but it surprisingly was not overwhelming. It is what it is, I suppose.
