Flashback Friday!

In an attempt to broaden his fan club, create more friends, and improve likeliness, I've chosen AUSTIN to be the subject of my flashback this Friday.
I'm hoping that if you guys can see just how CUTE he really is and was, then we can begin to mend the scars of wherever we went wrong.
Look at this little beauty. A dashing 11 month old with the resemblance of Jakob almost 100%. Don't you just wanna hold him and those skinny leggies? He seems like a fun loving and happy child right? What's not to love?

This picture doesn't have an age on it but I'm guessing he's about 2 years old here. Isn't that haircut the 'do that every kid is sportin these days?! Austin is SO fashionable and ahead of the trends by decades. Just another reason to love everything about him. Those puffy cheeks and lips are to DIE for. Come on...admit it...you know you're drooling right now.
I knew if I showed you his sweet side you'd change your thoughts about him.
But then...

...I found this picture. And at that moment, I knew that all hope of loving Austin, was lost.
The pre-teens weren't good for you Lover. Thankfully he's grown into a stinkin HoT dude. BUT, sometimes...JUST sometimes...he'll make this annoying face (just like the picture) for the sole purpose of annoying the CRAP outta me. And it always works.
(You know you're doing it right now Lover AND laughing about it. Stopit.)


ps...Miah just said, "Dad don't look very good in that kid picture."

I'm thinking you need to add one more picture of what he looked like when you met or something...something not so...ummm...bad school picture.

Austin's awesome!!!

SM said...

LOL!! TOO FUNNY!! I love the pics. And in fact, the last one is kind of endearing. It's like a "look what he had to overcome" type thing.

Everyone likes Austin, tell him to stop losing sleep about it! ;)

Haha! This was great.. just for the record, I've never commented on a blog about Austin, because I feel strange commenting about a friends husband... especially when I've never met the friend or the husband... it is okay that I call you "friend".. right? I sent you a book, that makes us friends... right? LOL :)

p.s. Glad you're outta your funk and feeling like a happy girl again!

Oh, he really must love you to put up with you! i do love the perfectly positioned bangs in that last picture. Miah's hilarious. Give him some dr.pepper for me.

Poor Austin, what a good sport he is, one more reason to like him :). I'm getting scared that I put all those old pics of me on my blog *shiver*.

AWWWWWWWWW!!! I love my son-in-law, Austin. You know Austin, if no one else loves you...you always have your mother in law....as long as you leave my bunnies alone...hahahaha...I hope you are enjoying Rhode Island and will be home soon.
Mutha in law

you crack me up! I really did laugh at this one:) Of course we love Austin b/c you do. But I don't know him--so most of the time I just don't know what to say to post's about him:) Miah is too funny--out of the mouths of babes:)

O-M-G, A!!!!!!! WOW!!!!! It's a good thing he is in class right now, and has NO clue that you posted all those loveable pics of him for the whole internet world to see.

I especially LOVE LOVE the last pic! What a handsome little guy!!!!

dena said...

That is a CRAZY picture! It is a miracle that you bagged a hot leg warmer wearin' chick like J Lowe!

nat said...

i love it...those were great pics....especially the last one...every guy goes thru that chunky stage...it's hilarious...

Lindsay said...

oh austin... you're just a nerd like the rest of us. I should have known. You're right jessica.. that last picture looks like someone socked him in the mouth... poor chubby austin... enos laughed when he saw this picture and said, "aww.. austin was a fat kid!" HAH.

Bonnie said...

Man, that was a BAD picture! Poor Austin! You're right, it is a good thing he grew out of that stage! Now I know where his obsession with carbs came from... must bring back bad memories!

Carolina said...

I'm not gonna follow suit and comment about how "bad" the chubby picture is..blah blah..blah!

I'm just going to kindly TELL all the fact that when this handsome boy moved into our ward...EVERY GIRL was completely SMITTEN by him! Yah...Rockwall ward girls..remember, remember?? And as you all know...it included our Jessica who stated she would one day marry him!

So...that just goes to show that it doesn't matter how bad the so-called "ugly" phase is..because you still get the "girl" in the end :) :)
