There's no place like home


Owen and I just got back from the shoe store. I'd only planned to stop in and get a quick check of his shoe size, but one foot measured at a 6 and the other at a 5.5, which meant the size 5 shoes he walked in wearing would need to be replaced. And wouldn't you know, these red beauties were on sale 80% off. A deal like that justifies making him walk around looking like Judy Garland.

And on a "my sweet baby is growing up" note, Owen shrugged off my offered hand and walked down the flight of 10 brick steps from the driveway to the house all by himself. A year ago at this time all he could manage was a pitiful G.I. Joe belly crawl.

Click those heels -- there's no place like home. When he turn's 2 I can't wait to double his height to see how tall he is going to be. That's coming up soon. What are your party plans since we also have a wedding to attend? Halloween?

He is definitely getting bigger and more grown up. They say you can judge how big a boy will be by the size of his feet. Looks like he is on his way to being pretty tall. And he is already developing that "I can do it myself" attitude. That is Ok too as long as he stays within your boundaries. Grandpa Coach
