This week Owen began feeding himself dinner. Its crazy messy but tons of fun watching him try to get the hang of using a spoon on his own. Bowls with suction cups on the bottom that stay in place are my new favorite baby item. Without them there would be less eating and more flinging of bowls across the room. We also started giving Owen more "real food" like cous cous, cheese and roasted sweet potato. He even enjoyed bits of pot roast at grandma's. Its fun watching him try new tastes and textures.
Owen has started standing on his own. It only lasts for a few minutes though. He seems to fall down as soon as he realizes he is not holding on to anything. His favorite thing right now is clapping. He LOVES when everyone starts clapping, and he will immediately join in. Kisses are also being given but they are sloppy and open mouthed...and completely adorable.
Being Owen's mommy is the best thing EVER.
