Owen has been smiling purposefully for about a week now.  The smiles are still pretty infrequent, but he is starting to figure out what he is doing.  When Andy came home from work today, I was showing him how Owen can sit in his Bumbo chair.  We had the camera out and happened to catch a couple of smiles!


Owen is getting so big!

Everyone tells you that your children grow up fast, but it is amazing to actually watch it happen.  Sometimes it seems like I put Owen to sleep and he wakes up a bigger boy with more abilities!  He is holding his head up now (at least for short periods of time). Yesterday, I set him in his bouncer for a little while.  He was so cute that I had to take some pictures.  The pictures were so cute that I had to share them.  We didn't stay in the bouncer for long, but we are working our way up to loving a new toy!



We also decided yesterday that Owen was big enough to graduate out of the sling on his baby bathtub. He looked like such a big boy waiting for his bath!


Happy Birthday to Emily!

I do not know how in the world I am 25 years old, but I guess I am!  It seems like yesterday that I was putting on shows with Brittney in Annie and Da's yard, but now I am a college graduate, I'm married, and I have a 2 month old son!  It has been a great 25 years, and here's hoping that the next 25 are even better!

I just realized that Owen will be 25 years old when my next 25 years are up...that's SCARY!!!

Thanks everyone for making my birthday so special!  All of my family worked together to get me an awesome Ipod.  Thanks, Dad, Annie, Da, Ann, Brittney, and Tyler!  Owen gave me a docking station for the house, and Andy installed a port in the van so that I can listen to my Ipod with CD quality and not have to deal with an FM modulator...too bad we didn't know that our stereo had anti-theft protection and we had to buy a code to make it work again!

My sweet mother gave me a beautiful locket with a picture of Owen inside and a neat gadget that wirelessly uploads my pictures from my digital camera to my computer.

My wonderful husband also built me an awesome computer that runs Mac so that I can do neat things with my pictures, Ipod, and blog.

I love you all!

Sunday Naps

Owen was sick on Sunday.  He had a virus last week, so we decided to keep him home from church.  I stayed home on Sunday morning, and Andy stayed home with him on Sunday night.  When I got home from church, this is what I found:




Happy Halloween!

Owen was 6 weeks old for his first halloween.  We were afraid his costume would be too big, but it ended up being perfect.  Owen was the most adorable little monster!  Owen had a virus, so we didn't get to do much trick or treating, but we did go see Nana and Granny.  GiGi came to see her little monster, too!
