This morning we watched the recycling truck drive in, empty cans, back up, turn around, and come back down the other side of the street. Owen was very interested! :-) We have such good times together. He is not cuddling quite so much, but when I get the chance, I hold on tight. He wiggles and wobbles, walks and talks the best he can. He rolls around laughing and having a good 'ol time. He started making a new sound...a kind of song-like sound like he's trying out his range. Up and down he makes the notes go...not the best singing yet, but perhaps he is trying to be like his daddy by singing.


I'm already sad about going back to work...I know I love my job because I would miss it if I did not have it to go back to. I am excited about my year, my new team, my schedule, but I keep thinking about all the times we share now during the day that I will miss terribly when I am away from him for 8 hours. Almost half of that will be nap time and another hour will be eating, but there is so much to share just in those times alone. Oh, Owen...what to do?
We are super excited about the family reunion!!!!!! We get to see everyone (almost) and play really hard! The only thing I do not look forward to is a 5 1/2 hour drive...Owen doesn't do well for 1/2 hour...we'll see if we can't keep him busy or asleep! :-)

Your little boy loves trucks just like his Grandpa! They will have fun together...

I lived across the street from a Bachelor at my last house whose garbage can was filled with beer bottles almost every week. When the trash was picked up it was like the fourth of July as his can was dumped. Owen would get a kick out of that.
