Now we're there


Nine friends and I had a slumber party over the weekend (yes, I'm too old for such things and that is precisely why it was so much fun).  When I came home Saturday, I learned that Owen figured out his walking toy earlier that morning.  Scott said he just crawled up to it, grabbed the bar to pull himself up and took off.  He'll walk until he reaches an obstruction and then wait patiently for someone to come turn him around.  

It's occurred to me that Owen has chosen to attain several of his milestones outside of my presence.  I must give him stage fright or something.  When it's time for those official first steps, I guess I'll have to pretend I'm going off to get a pedicure and then hide out across the street in the neighbors' bushes with a pair of binoculars instead.  

p.s. Between the saggy britches and creepy long hair growing behind his ears, he looks like Lil Wayne tried to style Dennis Franz, don't you think?

Yeah!. . . . and he did it without shoes. I can't wait to see him again, hold and kiss him. Before too long he won't let us do that because of the independent two's. So hug him up and kiss him a bunch for yourself and all of us. DD

Great job little Owen! I love how little Owen turned around to look at you when he came to a stop. Less than a month and he will be a i year old! They grow up so fast.

I finally got some time to look at the blog. It won't be long until you won't have to hire somebody to mow your grass. He looked like he was pushing a lawnmower or a grocery cart. That will be a help to you as well as he can accompany you as you go shopping. Has it been almost a year since we got that call at 4:00 in the morning and we luckily caught a flight and got to Birmingham in time to be with you as Owen was coming into this world? All of us were so lucky to be able to share that moment together. Give him a hug and we will see you in less than a month. Love, Coach
