Owen is ONE!

Our little Owen celebrated his first birthday yesterday. I know they say it goes faster with the 2nd child and yep, it sure does! I won't lie, it's been a challenging year at times, but what a cutie. This little face makes it all worth it.
We don't get his stats till Friday at his Dr. appt. But in the mean time, the big news is....HE WALKS!
He started taking a few steps on his on own on Saturday and continued to do a few yesterday also. Unfortunately he has a cold so he's been a little clingy and whiny and hasn't had much walking energy. But hooray! He's a cute little weeble wabble and can take 6 steps, so far.

Other stuff he's up to:
He likes to be wherever I am. Shocker. If I'm in the kitchen for 2 seconds, he finds me. So I pull out my bag of kitchen tricks for him to play with (um, tupperware, measuring cups, wire whisk). Today it was: snacks to eat. He sat, leaned against the trashcan and was totally chill like this for 15 min. It was adorable:
He loves to smile and has the cutest little face. But he can also be a fabulous whiner. This picture makes me laugh:
He loves to be wherever Lucy is and his face lights up when he sees her. She's learning how to share with him and is getting better at it. I predict a lifetime of Owen playing with dollhouses and being dressed up in little girl clothes:
He's such a fun little boy already. He has a great laugh and smile.
He likes to play peek-a-boo with his rag (yes, he has a rag too). He's become a better sleeper and takes good naps. He loves to be held but explores on his own too (hallelujah). He likes to climb. He can go down the little slide at the mall by himself (on his stomach of course). And well, he's just adorable!
We love you Owen! Happy first Birthday!
