I was just thinking the other day that I needed to update my little guy's book. I don't think I've written in it since he turned one, he's now four. My daughters is 100% completed since she is now 9. Any kid after the first always gets shafted.. Haha.. My poor little guy!

PS. Love the name August!

I love the name August! When I had my second boy, it was August or Sawyer. He looked like a Sawyer, so that's what he is. But I loved the name August...Gus, Gussie, Auggie, the possibilities are endless. We just have Sawy (like Soy). But it fits him great!
