Our little man is keeping us on our toes these days. He has been walking since he was about 10.5 months, a master at climbing stairs and fearless. He is also trying so hard to talk. His favorite word right now is GO. We say “ready, set” and Owen will say GO. It cracks us up! He says it when we are going outside, when we are leaving the house, when we head upstairs for bath, pretty much all the time. He is so full of life and has taught me so much already.
You are a serious, adventurous and stubborn soul. You love playing with your sister and are starting to take a stance for yourself when sis gets a little too aggressive and bossy. You love playing outside and taking walks. You also insist on climbing the stairs even though you are not old enough to come down the stairs by yourself and you think it is pretty funny to have mommy and daddy chase you off the staircase – it’s your favorite game! You are a great eater and will eat most anything we put in front of you. Your favorite foods right now are oatmeal, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, chicken nuggets, yogurt and applesauce. You are trying so hard to make your voice heard, but you have a pretty limited vocabularly for the time being. You can say dada, mama, sis, GO, dog and duck and you love when we sing ABCs. You LOVE bath time and you splash water with your legs and hands with the biggest smile on your face. You have 8 teeth now and I think we are in for some rough nights soon as it appears your incisors are coming!! You LOVE music just like your sister and it is so sweet to watch you and Jensen dance with excitement to a variety of music. Lately you have been trying to play sister’s guitar and you are pretty good at holding it with one had and slamming your other hand on the strings.
You are an absolute challenge at times, but we can’t imagine our life without you. Your constant snuggles, precious chubby cheeks and smile melt this mama’s heart. We love you so much and can’t imagine our lives without you.
