Out of the mouths of babes... Here is a conversation between Owen and Daddy:
Owen: Daddy, I brush your hair?
Daddy: Where's my hair?
Owen: There (pointing to the sides)
Doug: What about here (patting the top of his head)?
Owen: No hair there
Doug: What happened to it?
I can't believe it's June already. Thank God for nicer weather! We've been out to the zoo a few times and went to the Brooklin County Fair this week (a sure sign that summer is around the corner). Owen loved the fair....maybe a little too much (hello meltdown when it was time to go. The joys of having a 2 year old!). He actually went on a couple of rides for the first time but was scared of all but the pony ride. Still, he kept asking to go on more. His favourite, as always, was the animals.
Owen is doing really well with potty training. At home, he's pretty much got it mastered. He's even waking dry most mornings but Mommy hasn't been brave enough yet to get rid of the pull-up for nightime. We're also still working on getting it down while at school. All in all, he's doing quite well with it.
Owen has a new pet in the backyard (see pic), who drops by on a regular basis and Owen has taking quite a liking to him. We'll see how much Daddy likes him when he sees the nice "piles" he leaves behind.
Cooper is 4 months old today. Developmentally, quite a bit has happened over the last month. He's now grasping and holding toys, he's doing much better with head and limb control. We also kicked the swaddling habit (not like it helped much anyway...he's still up every 2-3 hours through the night.) He has started to get a few 4-5 hour stretches in but they are from 7pm-12am. That doesn't help Mommy much! Oh well...in time. He's also babbling a lot more, particualrly when he wants us to know he's not happy. :-) Good news, his umbilical hernia has pretty much healed on it's own. It just looks like an "outy" now...yay!
Unfortunately, we've decided that we won't be able to make it home to NB this summer...sniff..sniff. The flights are just too pricey right now and the thought of driving all that way with and infant and toddler is just too much for Mommy and Daddy. But we'll make our own fun here. Owen will only be in school part-time this summer so we'll spend lots of time together.
That's it for now. Hugs and kisses to everyone in NB...we're missing you!
