The firm that did our house re-model last year decided to enter our project for an award, plus Portico is looking at including before and after shots of our bathroom in an upcoming issue. What does that have to do with Owen? Well, one of the guys from the firm came by Friday to get more shots of the finished room, and he used his fancy camera to take this candid of Owen. Isn't the quality great? I wish I wish I wish I had one!
Update: Ha! I guess that's what I get for coveting. It would seem that the photo is of such high resolution that it's too nice for my blog. Sometimes I log on and it's there and sometimes it's not. Can you see it? If not and it's just killing you, I can e-mail it. Just leave a comment and place your order!
It was brutally cold at the end of last week, with a wind chill of zero when we got up Friday morning. We waited until it warmed up to the 30s to go outside.
O is becoming an avid outdoorsman. He bays at the front door worse than the cats sometimes. And it is no longer acceptable to come up our front walk and go straight into the house. Owen begs (Literally! He signs "please".) for a quick swing.
After playing in the yard a while, we came in and jumped on the bed. While staying at their house, Owen's Grandmother and Granddad helped him figure out what fun that can be. He's pretty good at playing the Trust Game. No cowardly bending of the knees or checking over the shoulder for Owen! Oh, and that's an acorn from the yard he's holding up at the end of the clip. Should I confess that, despite capturing it on video, I didn't even realize he possessed that particular choking hazard? Scott discovered it in Owen's pocket about 10 minutes later and took it from him. It took a day or two for me to upload this footage and find the acorn's unappreciated guest appearance.
