We ended the day at dinner at Puckett's grocery and Sweet CeCe's. Olivia went with us, but I never got any pictures with her! She was a huge help!

Our wonderful photographer worked her magic again with Henry for his 6 month pictures. She got some great ones of Austin's personality, too. He got sick the next day, so you can tell towards the end, he is starting to not feel good.

Since the last blog, Henry Thomas Cox has joined our family! He weighed 9 lbs 14 ounces and was 21 inches long! I was blessed to be able to stay home with the boys for four months on maternity leave. We had the best time playing outside, going to Monkey’s Treehouse, going to the pool, walking around the neighborhood, etc. I was not ready to go back when the time came. It has been an adjustment for all of us. Henry is still not sleeping through the night, but he sleeps longer than Austin did at this stage.
Henry had his 4 month check up the other day, and he is now 17 lbs 14 ounces! The doctor said “this is what we call a bouncing baby boy”. She was very pleased with his growth and how alert and smiley he was. He is starting to roll over and grab toys and bring them to his mouth. He loves his toes right now and plays with them or chews on them. He adores his big brother. He is always so excited to see Austin and just watches him intently. He loves sitting in his bumbo playing with toys. He can even grab toys out of the bin sitting next to him. He loves sitting in the exersaucer watching everyone around him. Austin will go and bring toys to entertain him. Henry is such a happy baby. He is content to sit in your lap just watching the world go by. He has these beautiful blue eyes, and his hair is getting darker. The hair on the top of his head stands straight up after his bath! His smile is the highlight of my day and what keeps me sane when I have to get up every 2 hours in the middle of the night. When I come in his room, he does this little dance kicking his arms and legs and gives me this huge grin. He is such a sweet baby!
Austin has changed so much since the last post! He repeats everything we say. He is learning his colors and does pretty well with them. He can count to ten. Allen likes to say he does “roll call”. My brother said it is like he is a sports announcer. He keeps tabs on everyone around (or not around). He loves to go down the list of our family and say what everyone is doing. "Dada Work" "Dada Church". He thinks if someone is not at our house, they are at church. If you eat a meal with him, he will give you a play by play of the meal. “Mama eat”. “Mama more”. “Mama All Done”. When he says crackers, it sounds like chatchies. He has some wild hair that goes every different way after he wakes up from sleeping. I am constantly taming it, and it seems like he is getting a hair cut every few weeks.
We had a fun fall! One Monday, Allen, Austin, and I went to Gentry’s Farm. He had a blast going on the hay ride and playing in the log cabin. We had a great Halloween. He dressed up as Thomas and went trick or treating at a few neighbors’ houses. He loved the “punkins” as he called them.
Henry was baptized the first week of November, and Allen’s parents came to visit. We decided to have Austin’s 2nd birthday party the same weekend. He had a Thomas themed party and had a great time! Allen and I took him to Adventure Science Center on his actual birthday. He loved the trains, but the rest of it was a little over his head. Plus, I think that is where he got the stomach bug that lasted over a week!
Austin loves to talk about himself in 3rd person and calls himself Austi. It is really cute. Henry LOVES his fingers. He sucks his 2 fingers on his left hand when he is tired and rubs his head. It is the cutest thing.
Here we are picking out our Christmas tree!
