Imitating Daddy

January Happenings

Here's the last couple of weeks of "Just" life...haven't used that pun this year so thought I better :)! Grandpa finished 30 years of working at the Minneapolis dealership and Owen scored the balloons after we visited him. Made the trek out west to go hunting with the youth boys and their dads. Tough trip both ways.....lots, and lots, and lots of crying. The picture of O eating should read "typical first bite". When ever he eats a new solid he can't figure out what to make of it. Today we had a play date with little Miss Maddie, O's "southern bell". It was really fun to watch them interact, especailly when Maddie decided to "taste/lick" Owen :)! And can't forget that Todd got his Master's diploma in the mail today....whoo-hoo, sure glad we're done with that!

Can Do's and Cannot's

I had an idea a while back to do Owen's "Can Do's" and "Cannot's" for the record. So here goes.....

Owen can....
* Crawl.....and quite quickly once he has his sights on something he
wants...usually the dog's bowls.

* Laugh :)

* Pull up on everything, the latest is our pant legs.

* Say he has two teeth...well not actually "say it" :)

* Get mad when he doesn't get his way....gets that from his Daddy :).

* Fart....again got it from his Daddy :).

* Speak his own language from manly grunts to cute cooing.

* Climb, Denver, toys, guitar cases, steps, etc.

* Eat Gerber puffs, with the funniest faces.

* Say "mama" and "dada" but not intentionally directed at us.

Owen cannot....

* Sleep through the night....ARGH!

* Get those top teeth to come in....drool and chew and drool and chew and nothin'!

* Hold still while his diaper is being changed.

* Like his nose being wiped.

* Stay in one place for very long, or sit on a lap or be held period very long.

* Understand that Denver's tail is not a toy.

* Help looking just like his Daddy (that's what most people say at least).
