Ma! He's makin' eyes at me...

Meet Austin.
His family lives in our neighborhood and we go to the same church. Austin is just a couple months older than Afton, although it looks like more because she is so teeny... and the whole hair thing. How unfair is it that he has that beautiful head of blond curls and she is still mostly bald! Since they were born his mom and I have often joked that some day we will have to urge them in each other's direction. Well, we may not have to wait that long... and it may not take much urging.

Here's how it all went down...
We noticed that Austin was inching his way closer and closer to Afton. He actually started about 10 feet away, but I wasn't quick enough with the camera. Afton actually inched away a couple of times and gave him a few sideways glances (playing hard to get, I suppose), but eventually allowed him to get closer...
and closer...
until they were right next to each other. 
Will noticed cute little Afton and decided to try his chances with her. Austin quickly took care of him with a little shove...
Just enough to knock him off balance... rattle his nerves a bit.
Will decided it wasn't worth the fight and threw in the towel... which made Austin very happy.
So, after some pleasant conversation...
some whispered "sweet nothings"...
a tender little kiss...
and some affectionate touching... Afton was obviously hooked... 
And she followed him off into the sunset (and the playground). Can you blame her? Austin is a pretty cute kid! Austin's mom and I are anxious to see how this story unfolds... more to come?

(P.S. That's chocolate cookie smeared all ever his face. I guess it made him even more irresistable... what girl doesn't love chocolate?)

Cute's pictures and story, you had me hooked! I was thinking that Austen and Will were going to get in a fist fight over Afton! I'm glad they didn't but it would have been funny!

Glad you found us. Adorable family. And you have my blessing in using the name Cole, it is a good one. Love this story and the fact that you got all those pictures. How old is Afton? I think Stella will be in the same boat as her in the hair area. Ah well . .Isn't that always the way? Boys get the long dark eyelashes and the head of golden curls.

Oh my gosh, that is one of the most adorable photo stories ever. I love how you were able to capture everything! (I'm an old friend of Chris's from BYU/MDT)
