Awsumb's Christmas Presents
Awsumb's Christmas PJ's

Awsumb played the baby Jesus in the church play

Since Awsumb sleeps with Mommy and Daddy or in his bassinet,
 we attached Awsumb's mobile to his dressing table. 
He loves to watch it while we change his diaper.
Makes diaper time more bearable for him, and Mommy!
  Two months old

Independence Day
Awsumb was so excited to wave his very own flag.
We sang this song to him over and over!
"You're a grand old flag, you're a high flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave!"


Awsumb finally gets a room of his own in the attic above the garage...
Awsumb likes his new bed!
After a long day of visiting friends and walking along the lake,
Awsumb needed a bath before bed to wash all the sunscreen out of his hair.
Awsumb loves to splash the water and play with his boat.
Gpa Awsumb brought Awsumb this race car outfit the day he was born
Gpa Awsumb also likes to give Awsumb Hot Wheels.
Problem is his Mommy won't let him take them out of the box,
and well, they just don't make good teething toys!
Awsumb's friend Anjah gave him her Mega Saucer to play with
Awsumb sure loves bouncing and playing in it!  Plus it keeps him out of Mommy's way!
