This is Austin's big day

Austin was born 14 years ago today!
9lbs, 8 oz, and was 22 1/2 inches long. Whew!


He already looks like a 'man in the making' in this picture,
and he was only 4 weeks old!
Watch him grow through the years.


Austin was just 9 when we first met him.
I noticed right away how polite he was, and what a gentleman.

Taken the first day I met them.

He is very even tempered, easy to get along with.
I am particularly impressed at how kind and patient he is with his brother and sisters.

Austin likes water polo, swimming, guitar and hanging out with friends. He is presently spending much of his time at play practice,
as Austin has the part of Grandpa Joe in Willy Wonka.
Mark your calendars for April 17th as that will be opening night at the MET.
Easy for me to remember because that is the day Logan turns 30. :)
We wish you a very Happy Birthday Austin!!
We love you, and we are proud of you!

Happy Birthday Austin. Even though I have never met you I think you are a great kid. I am impressed that you are in a play. I always wanted to do that but was always too nervous. Good luck.

We all need to know something Jill/Amy. Anytime you write about Amy's kids it is always said how polite and nice they are. How do they/you do it????

I think these pictures show that he was a cute, cute baby and grew into a handsome young man. I'm sure he makes his parents proud too. Happy Birthday to Austin!

Grandma Peg echoed my thoughts completely! I hope to meet this fine young, handsome man someday! I'm going to try & see that play at the MET too! What a great thing to play Grandpa Joe & Willy Wonka? Double Awesome. I'm totally impressed by his multi-faceted talents! Happy Birthday!
