He loves the kitty cat

While at Bear Lake, auntie Brena was playing with Owen and showing him Camden's sewing cards. Owen was loving looking at them, and acting so cute. He really loves his auntie, and is always doing cute things for her. I especially love his reaction to the kitty cat and the bunny rabbit.

First solid food

At Owens 4 month check up the pediatrician looked at Owens growth chart and said everything looked fine, even though Owen was under the curve he was following right along it. Then the pediatrician looked at Owens face and said he didn't think he was chubby enough, so we were sent home with orders to either give Owen a formula bottle after he nursed to make sure he is getting full enough, or start feeding him solid food. We tried the formula thing, but Owen wanted nothing to do with it, and kept looking at me like I was crazy.
So here we are at 4 months and 4 days old eating rice cereal. Owen loves the stuff, and finished off the first bowl I ever gave him. We make sure to let him have it at least once a day, but today he got lucky and got to have it twice. Hopefully this helps him chunk up a little and make the pediatrician happy. We'll get to see the progress in a week or so when we go in for a weight check. Mommy really wasn't ready for this step yet, it means that my baby is growing up faster than I ever thought possible.

4 months

Our little man is 4 months old, it's crazy how time flies when we are having so much fun. We are head over heels in love with this little guy. He is growing, just slowly. As of his 4 month appointment he is 9 pounds 14 ounces, and 23 and 1/2 inches tall.
He sleeps great at night, usually going to bed between 8 and 9 PM and waking up between 6 and 7 AM. He eats and then goes back to sleep again for up to another 2 hours. He has trouble napping during the day though. Does anyone have any advice for getting him to nap without mommy having to hold him. I tried to talk to the pediatrician about it, and he asked "would you rather have him sleep during the day, or at night." I chose night.

when screaming = still cute

I was cleaning some things off the desktop on chases imac and saw this picture of Owen from his blessing photo shoot. I think even though he is screaming he is still super adorable, maybe I'm a meanie though.

Bear Lake 2010

We were able to take a week long vacation the end of August to Bear Lake with Chases family. It was lots of fun, and we spent a lot of time just hanging out on the beach. I was able to get out on the boat a few times, as Brena and Camden were there and willing to watch Owen for me. I look forward to next year when Owen can actually play in the water and hopefully enjoy the lake a little more.
Owens first feel of the water, it was pretty warm and he didn't seem to mind it.
