My Three at Six Months...

6 months

6 months

6 months

Owen is 6 Months!

Owen's 6 month birthday would officially be February 31st, but since there is no such day... I guess today would be it because tomorrow is March 1st. So, we celebrated today ;)

These are some more pictures from our photo shoot last week.

So what's new with Owen???

He's been sleeping from 10:00pm to 6:00am.
Which makes me a VERY happy mommy!

He drinks a whole 5 ounces now. AND...he can hold his own bottle!

He is a full time sitter upper too! Getting better and better at it by the day.

He's still chewing on EVERYTHING, but hasn't actually cut any teeth yet. I think they are right there, just sitting and waiting for the perfect day to come through.
Speaking of chewing...he also started eating vegetables. He started with carrots yesterday, then peas today, and probably squash tomorrow. He seems really excited about his new flavors :)

If it is possible for a child this age to have a favorite toy, this is his. He loves this little cowboy. It is just the right flatness to be able to get a good chew on. I wanted to show it's size in comparison to his sweet little foot. Almost exactly the same size.
Yep...he's already half a year old and I don't know where the time has gone. His easy going little personality is really starting to shine. He is pretty much good with anything. He doesn't mind being held, kissed, hugged, carried, rolled, or anything else by his two big brothers. (and believe me he gets plenty of all that) He giggles when you play peek a boo with him, and has a ticklish spot right on his neck. He is hungry every three hours on the money, but after a nice bottle he is happy again until nap time.
He still uses rolling as his main form of transportation, but I think he is gearing up to crawl. He picks his knees up and is learning the crawling position.
Happy 6 month Birthday! We love you so much!

Owen's First Food

Owen will be 6 months this week, so it's time for him to start eating baby food. We started tonight with carrots, which he really loved! We can't wait to continue introducing vegetables, then fruits, then meats. Yummy yummy!

Three precious faces!

Each one of those three little faces brighten my day in their own special way.

Birthday Countdown

So this year, more than ever, Luke is super excited about his birthday. Every day- several times a day, he asks me how much longer till my birthday??? So, I thought it might be a good idea to do a birthday countdown chain so he will have a visual of how many days are left. Every day he will tear off a link of the chain until we FINALLY reach April 13th.

So...he still has 50 days to go. (forever in a little 4 almost 5 year olds mind) But, we will tear one off one day at a time until we get to the end of the chain!


What's the old saying? "God made dirt, dirt don't hurt?"

I am a firm believer! I love it when the boys play so hard outside and get so dirty that they have to take their clothes off before they come in the house. Today was one of those days and I was totally fine with stripping their clothes off in the backyard and carrying them straight to the shower.

I love having dirty little smelly boys!

You can do it O!

Owen is starting to scoot! He gets his eye on something and will do whatever it takes to reach it. It's so fun to watch him grow!

Sweet baby! It won't be long before he is crawling all over the place..

Sweet Moments

I was lucky enough to have caught this precious moment this morning. Made my whole day!

Owen likes our Spiderman book just as much as the other two ;)

My newest craft is this welcome wreath. I found it one day as I googled "burlap". It was super easy to make and you can change out the words to say whatever you want. I decided to make this one in bright colors for spring, but I have seen them all different ways. It is always so fun to have a new wreath on the door!

On The Move

Notice little Owen WAY back in the back of the picture...

He started at the top left corner and rolled all the way over there until he couldn't roll any farther. Won't be long!!!
