Daily Owen: 10.30.2013

Owen playing in the garage and outside with poppy. He also helped mama weed which basically involved him throwing dirt, which was apparently a total blast. Doesn't take much!

Daily Owen: 10.29.2013

I thought I would feel vindicated waking up the little guy this morning after we were up the.whole.night (almost literally). But instead I walked in to the sweetest looking boy who melted my heart. Guess that makes all of the lack of sleep worth it!

Playing around with mama this afternoon causing all sorts of trouble...clearly.

Day at the pumpkin patch at a local organic farm about 10 minutes from us. Complete with tractor rides, picking pumpkins (of course), watching the heaving of a huge pumpkin, apple cider, wheel barrow rides, and seeing pigs and cows. Owen's eyes were huge pretty much the whole time we were there- too cute!

Daily Owen: 10.24.2013

The story of last night, as told by Owen:

Guess what guys?!

I'm a big boy now and big boys grow teeth. I am SO big, I decided to cut my last six before my two year molars ALL AT ONCE!

I have also decided to start walking now. As a result, I was a crabby pants last night at least that's what mama says.

At first I looked at her and said, "no way mama!" but mama and poppy both assured me I was indeed up every hour and would not sleep. Fever, nursing, inconsolable- what a mess I was! 

I finally fell asleep on mama with blankie around 5am, but she had to get up at 6.30am so she only got 2-3 hours of sleep and I didn't even want poppy to hold me! I woke up happy and fever free!

I think mama is really tired so I gave her my best cheese face which made her laugh. 

Then I offered to cuddle her with long as its not every hour all night again, I think she will do it. She said she loves me and feels bad that I have so many new teeth at once. I said a-ok mama! I'm a big boy.

The end. 

Mama's note: please sleep all night (or even just a few hours straight...please please please....)

Owen got to play with poppy today in which LOTS of fussiness ensued (hello four teeth at once and also: BAH). To mitigate the fussiness = terrible nap = no productivity for J, Justin bundled Owen up, put him in the back pack (O's favorite!) and headed out to work in the garage. Apparently it was a huge success- backpack and change of scenery made Owen forget about the blasted teeth for a while and Justin got some work done. Win win!

Helping poppy build some shelves in the garage. Was not happy about the hat.

Daily Owen: 10.21.2013

All bundled up and ready to head out into the arctic (ahem, 50 degree fall day...just looks as if he might be heading into the arctic).

Fourteen months old today. Fourteen. Woah. Where did the time go?! 

I think we've also traded in the moose shot for the doggie shot. Seriously, this kid LOVES dogs. Of any kind whether stuffed or real, apparently.

Game called: attack poppy and big doggie in background by running between the two and "getting" each one. Hilarious!

The little guy loves to  "help" mama clean. He was really rocking it tonight!

We made it back to Seattle today. Owen slept for an hour on the plane (below) and otherwise did really well. He's such a good little traveler.

Playing with water on grandmas counter...most fun EVER.

We had originally planned on going to Gracelands homecoming today but decided against the drive as there just didn't seem to be enough of my close friends going. However, one of them- my college roommate for four years- was in the Kansas City area so we got to have brunch with Wish and her two cute kiddos and husband. So fun albeit definitely different now with kids in the mix!

Long day of shopping today- Oeo did great! And also played hide and seek with random objects in stores. He's having a blast getting spoiled by grandma and grandpa!

Daily Owen: 10.9.2013

Another plane ride in the books. We barely made it.... Literally on the plane for two minutes before the doors shut and were the last people on. We can thank the airline for our HOUR wait to check our bags. We actually even did the whole cliche running through the airport thing. 

It ended well as we did make our flight and as a bonus, Owen did awesome!
