Wow! I can't believe he's hit double digits! He's gonna be a year old before we know it! How does that happen?! These past 10 months have flown by! And I can't believe we've lived in FL now for 6 months! Time truly does fly!
Here are a few Owen updates:
-He's eating more and more "grown up" food. Today we shared chicken nuggets for lunch! I think one of his favorite times of the day is when he shares a snack with his Daddy when he gets home from work. They usually enjoy crackers, apples, or a banana!
-He really knows what he's saying! He's been saying Mama and Dada for several months now, but now he's made the connection! When I get him from his nap he immediately says "Mama!" and as soon as Joe gets home from work he says "Dada"! He melts our heart!
-Pray for us. The mini tantrums have continued. If his toy car doesn't do exactly what he wants, he grunts (he seriously sounds like a lil' monster) and then he throws his car violently! I seriously have my work cut out for me!
-He's still not walking independently but it's still his favorite thing to practice! Thanks to our dear friend Beverly, he now has a walker!!! WAHOO! Thanks Bev!
-He does not like Christmas trees! I tried to get him to touch and smell a real one at Lowes and his little legs squeezed me and he nearly broke his back trying to lean away from it!! Not completely a bad thing though because he hasn't gone near ours!
-He continues to love baths, rides in his wagon, chasing his puppy, being chased by his mommy and daddy, being spun in circles, pushing and kicking any toys or loud objects, and so much more!
-His Grammy gave him a singing and dancing reindeer when she visited before Thanksgiving. He loves it! While she was here she taught him how to push the tiny button on the reindeer's foot to start and stop the loud music! It's so cute!!
-If on Thanksgiving Owen could have stated what he is most thankful for, Joe and I believe he would have said :
-His Mama and Dada
-His grandparents, great grandparents, great great grandfather, aunts, uncles,
cousins, and Roxy (our dog)
-And loud toys!
I guess that's enough updates for now! I'm a proud mom...can you tell?! :-)
To those who have young children...can you suggest any must have toys for our almost one year old? There's so many cool (and expensive) toys out there and we need a little help narrowing down his Christmas and Birthday gifts! Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
