Owen decided today was the day to redecorate the bathroom of our Park City condo we are staying in. I think he did an excellent job. Too bad for him, mommy caught him when he had only unrolled half the roll. Imagine how much better his redecorating could have been with a full roll of paper.

Look what Owen can do. Playing the harmonica. What a little smarty pants!

Mini golfer

Chase recently bought Owen some real golf clubs. Since every time he saw a club or a ball he would go crazy. He loves golf! He loves his clubs and can say club "bub", and ball "ba". He is learning quickly and can hit a ball on his own. Enjoy the cuteness.

We've spent a lot of time at various doctors, and appointments over the last few months. We've now met our deductible , and are half way to our out of pocket for the year, here's why.
Chase had weakness in his right fingers around the beginning of July, so we went to our family Doctor. He had an MRI which showed something in his brain. He was tested for MS to see if that's what is showing up. So far all the tests have been negative. But that's not ruled out all the way yet. 10% of people diagnosed with MS have negative results. He had another MRI a few weeks ago to see if anything had changed. The "tumor" has grown a tiny bit (could also be wrong measuring). But since all his strength was back in his arm and hand the neurosurgeon decided that he didn't want to do a biopsy now, as it could cause more problems for Chase right now. He will see the neurosurgeon again in November, have another MRI, and we will go from there. Whether it be just a biopsy and leave the tumor alone, or a biopsy and removal of the "tumor".

15 months

Wow what a slacker blogger. Mostly I just haven't blogged recently because I would rather spend my free time when Owen is napping or in bed doing other things. Owen is growing like crazy. Walking/running everywhere. Climbing everything. Being so stinking adorable. We truly love this little monkey, and are so grateful to have him as part of our family.
Owens 15 month stats: 17 pounds 15 ounces, 29.1 inches tall (5%). He is growing great and keeping right on his track. Our pediatrician is very happy with his progress, and so are mommy and daddy.
