42 weeks...

At 42 weeks Owen usually wakes up between 7:30 and 9:00. Every morning Owen and I go on a stroller walk. On our walks we try not to squish the morning sidewalk slugs with the stroller wheels, and we harass pigeons by chasing after them with the stroller to make them fly. Owen loves it when they fly.
I think we need to move up to the 1 year old mommy group because Owen is all over the place. He charges around like a tank and he has absolutely no fear. He loves to chase and be chased. We also found out this week that Owen thinks dirt is awesome.
Owen got his eighth tooth this week. Four on top and four on the bottom. He has started biting when he gets really tried and cranky. It super sucks when he bites. I hope it is a phase he will soon grow out of. I don't want him to be that kid at preschool that is biting the crap out of everyone. Its probably karma because I used to pinch everyone all the time (sorry michelle). He usually goes to bed between 8 and 10. He still sleeps in bed with us. We have gotten used to it at this point. He still wakes up 3-4 times a night but he is easily soothed back to sleep. I get really big smiles and extra special snuggles in the morning when he wakes up next to me. I love love love him.

40 weeks...

At 9 months Owen is 24 lbs and 29 inches long. He is saying "mama" like crazy but I still don't think he knows that I'm mama. I still love it though. This week is the first time Owen seemed to really enjoy playing independently. We even caught him quietly flipping thru the pages in one of his books all by himself. This is something he has never done before and makes his book loving mama very very happy.

38 weeks...

These are two of my favorite pictures taken while in Austin. They might just be my favorite pictures ever...I love them so.
P.S. The bunny is Owen's new friend we bought for him in Austin. His name is Thaddeus.
P.P.S. Drew is the Scrabble King.

Austin, TX

We had a wonderful time in Texas. Owen traveled like a dream. He is our "angel baby". Family and friends were loved on, and a TON of delicious food was eaten.
The top picture is Drew and his best friend Robert showing their man-love for each other by wrestling as soon as they were reunited. It was very sweet.
