My Happy Boy

It's been quite a while since I've given an update on my sweet boy. He will be a whoppin' 10 months old on October 17th. I can't believe it!!! The fact that he is almost one just seems unreal. Where has the time gone?

Owen is such a sweet guy. His smile is so big and so frequent; he's almost always smiling. He really has a very sweet personality; he is farily quiet (hard not to be with Miss Gabberjaws around), loves to be held, thinks his sister is hillarious, and loves to be read to. I just love hanging out with him!

He's weighing in at 18 pounds so he's just barely making it to the 10th percentile for weight. He's healthy though, and that's all that really matters! His reflux is still there and we're very grateful for a home with hardwood floors so that cleaning up the spit-up isn't a big deal. Even though he's still puking a lot, it's not hurting him very much anymore so that's a blessing. Our pediatrician said that once he learns to pull up, his muscles should strengthen and things should get better. We'll see. For now, I'm still not eating anything containing wheat, corn, or tomatoes. I'm taking him to an allergist at the end of the month so maybe I'll have more info after that.

Owey is doing the army-crawl all over the place, especially moving fast towards Tali's toys. He eats lots of fruits and veggies and loves maple teething biscuits. He can go from crawling to sitting, can stand with assistance, and just started to "dance." We've been working on signing; he understands "milk," "eat" and "more." I think he's starting to sign "more" but I'm not positive on that. He does love waving "hi" and "bye" and claps all the time.

We thank God for Owen!

  1. Oh so happy to have an update on Owen! Gosh, I meant to teach Piper signs but have been lax about it other than More and Eat. But so far I don't think she has really got it - but then I'm not nearly consistent enough for it to work. There are just so many things I thought I'd do better! Where has the time gone indeed... I'm wishing I had your hardwood floors lately not that our little babe has turned into Droolilla. :) So waht veggies are his favorite? Piper likes green beans - but has kinda gone on a food strike these past 4 days. It worries me. Thanks again for the update. meg and I were hoping to get up there to visit you this month, but it is not looking good at all... Maybe January or Feb.!
