Owen is doing really well. He just moved to the next classroom in school and the transition has been fairly easy. He's talking a little more but still not stringing any words together to form a phrase. His new obsession is Barney and Elmo (much to our dismay). He's growing like crazy...moving into size 3 and turning into a little boy right before our very eyes. When I tell him it's time for school, he now puts his chair away, shuts off the tv and grabs his backpack at the front door. He also managed to escape his crib recently. When did our baby turn into a little boy?!
For those of you who don't know already, Owen is going to be a big brother in February. Whoa...are we going to have our hands full!
Has it been a couple of months since our last update?? Owen is such a little boy these days..he seems to have lost his baby face almost overnight. New words include hi, ball and yucky (not sure where this one came from!). New signing words include please, thank-you, outside and bath.
He absolutely loves the outdoors...so much so that coming in is sometimes quite a production. Can you imagine...a mind of his own and STUBBORN....wonder where he gets that from?! He's also obsessed with dogs....we're working on Daddy..every little boy needs a dog of his very own! If only we were home more...
We're looking forward to the warm weather for the obvious reasons. But we're also dying to get into the summer as it means we've finally made it past his first cold and flu season at daycare. What a challenge that's been!
Owen will be 15 months old this week. We can hardly believe how grown up he is. He's walking/running like a pro (started a few days before 13 months). He's saying more words but we're pretty sure only Mommy and Daddy really understand them. He's also signing now, which helps when we're not 100% sure what he's saying.
He just had his first haircut and it went much better than we expected (see Feb pics). He looks like such a little boy now...sniff...sniff.
We also all survived Mommy's first business trip. She was away for 5 days. Mommy found it much harder than the boys did!
