Owen...partying like a rockstar...and playing in the sink...
silly boy!
who? me?
yep! me! (thanks, mom, for combing my hair like a big dork!)
You'd never guess...yes, boots...he asked to wear them to bed too. I'm telling ya! He cracks me up everyday! Some days I see him slimming down and losing his belly...but obvious not all the time!
Last Saturday was the first time he told me "poopy" before he went. Then the next day he made me laugh because he started calling everything "big" and "heavy" so he told me "poopy"..."big poopy"..."heavy poopy!" I've got to write that one in the journal!

Fun Times with mommy!... are we having fun??
Owen is starting to talk in sentences, and his first sentence ( I think) was "Shoot the basketball!" From this photo you would not believe he was so brilliant! :-)
Owen't loves to drink with a straw...he pulls the straw up and says, "BIG straw!" He cracks me up everyday!
This morning he was having a little too much fun with his "butter-butter" (peanut butter) and started licking it off his fingers. I think he missed some! Yes, his jammies say "man of steel".

Owen did eat all of his breakfast and drank all his milk this morning, so he was prepared for his "field trip." Carrie took the kids to see Jack and the Beanstalk in Anoka today...
She said Owen was really good, but when he started talking, she just gave him some "dee-berries" (strawberries). Of course that's going to make him quiet and focused! He is Roger's son! :-)

I think we are starting to see a trend here: as soon as Carrie put Owen in the car after the performance, he was asleep. She said he was asleep before she buckled him in. That's how she got the picture of him. She sent this picture to me on my cell phone right when she took it. What a wonderful thing to get in the middle of a busy day. A reminder of the most precious times...

When we were home this weekend, Gramma made Owen another little picture book. He loves this one because it has a picture of a "backetball hoop" on it...
At breakfast this morning he was very interested in it...he studied it, named everyone and everything he recognized: hoop, "gampa", tazzy, "backetball", etc...
Thanks gramma!

This past weekend Owen and I left Daddy at home to make the trip to Wisconsin for a short trip. We left Saturday morning-out the door by 6:30 and in Gramma and Grampa's driveway by noon. We made it! We were plenty busy and were loved. We spent time playing basketball, eating, playing, talking, playing more basketball, playing the piano, throwing monkey around and listening to him scream, playing more basketball, get the routine. :-)

The paparazzi was out in full force as Owen showed off his ball handling skills...

Owen got hugged and kissed and squeezed plenty! No lack of love here!
Auntie Emmy and Big Guy hung around quite a bit so Owen got his fill of them too! Big Guy ran around the yard with Little much fun!
Gramma and Grampa were generous with their hugs and kisses as well. I think Owen is the favorite!...well, how long will that last anyway? I think Julie is going to have a girl so Owen will still be the favorite boy! :-) heehee, that is just my feeling, but Julie is already saying it's a "he", I guess...we'll see!

Owen let me hug him and hold him as well. Okay...I'm still his favorite...totally! No contest!

We left Sunday afternoon in time for nap...he was so tuckered out, he slept for 21/2 hours. Sweet boy...We'd do the trip was time well-spent!
