12 months

Our tiny boy hit his 12 month mark on May 14. He is growing slowly, but healthy none the less. We went in to see the urologist in April, and found out that his bad kidney is gone. They couldn't see it in the ultrasound. So we have been released from the care of the urologist, and don't have to see him again. Hooray!!!

1 year stats: 16 pounds 8 ounces, and 28 inches tall. He is finally on the growth chart for his height at right around the 5th percentile. The pediatrician isn't worried about him, and is happy that he's following the curve and growing how a tiny boy should. One day he'll catch up.

- loves to eat anything he can get his hands on, his favorites right now are pirates booty, black beans, and hot dogs
- has 3 teeth, two on the bottom and 1 on the top.
-can kneel on his knees when playing
-loves to look at books
-enjoys playing on mommy and daddys ipads
- loves his grandpa James, and always wants to see him if he is in the room
-Another new thing is Owen is sleeping on the floor. He started hating his crib and wasn't sleeping at night, so we put him on the floor to see if we could catch a break. He's doing better but still wakes up quite a few times each night.

He would not sit still for his photos and was climbing all over the chair and making himself rock. Here he is our little monkey!

Thanks to our friend Lindsay for the adorable shirt!

Eating Breakfast

Not much eating happened this day! Owen doesn't fall asleep just anywhere so this was a shock for us. Poor thing had been sick and not sleeping at night, so he was just exhausted.

Easter 2011

We had a wonderful Easter! The easter bunny spoiled Owen, and brought him a new outfit, some bubbles, a few easter trucks, a bunny shaped bumble ball, and his first pair of converse. Owen didn't really care much about his basket, and only wanted to pull on the laces in his new shoes.
Owen loved all the plastic easter eggs that we gave him for his photos. He kept picking them up and banging them together, or putting them to his mouth and blowing on them.
We also gave him a chocolate bunny to enjoy in the studio. He would put the ears in his mouth for a few seconds, then pull them out and smack his lips together. I think he liked it. After all was said and done he was a pretty messy boy, and the back of the bunnies ears had a hole where he had ground his teeth into them.
His basket wasn't hidden very well
Every time the little tree got anywhere near him he would cringe and try and get away from it.

First lick
After a few licks
Testing out the butt, maybe it's as good as the ears
Back to the ears
Messy boy loved eating the easter bunny
