Oweeen

Lucy can finally say her brother's name. For two months we've tried to teach her "Owen" and she'd just say "baby" back to us. In fact, we tried to teach her in syllables, since she knows the letter "o". Here was a normal conversation:
Lucy, say "O".
"O".
Now say "O-wen".
She'd get a smirk on her face and reply, "Ooooo-baby!"
What a tease.

So yesterday, just on her own she said Owen. Only, it came out Oweeen. It still sounds real cute. She seems to enjoy a new word in her repertoire.

Here they are playing Casey's favorite game "Owen's gonna get you..."
He and Owen chase Lucy around and she thinks it's the funniest thing.
Can't wait till they're older and really do play together!

You definitely need to get Lucy saying "Oweeeeen" on video! Sounds adorable.

And yes, it is fun to watch when they start playing together. Alex's most often-repeated phrase lately is, "Mon, Booper!" Translation: C'mon, Cooper!

How fun! We used to do the same thing with each of our babies. The kids all LOVED that game. It was so fun and it would cause the baby to totally crack up. So cute!!
