4 weeks

Owen-today you are 4 weeks old! I wonder how 4 weeks can seem like a short period of time but also seem so long ago. It feels like you have been with us forever so I have to remind myself you are only 4 weeks old.

Things you do:
>You eat every 1.5hr to 2 hrs. You refuse to wait any longer than the 2 hour time frame.
>You hate formula! You have to be really desperate to eat it.
>You hold your head up really well. You did this from birth but you are now able to turn it all directions to look at things.
>You are cooing! It's more like "arrr" and when we talk to each other, your daddy reminds us that we are not pirates. We can be if you want to be though!
> You smiled at me for the first time this past week. Of course it was when we were talking pirate.
> You look for me when I walk in the room andIstart talking.
> Your favorite place to sleep is with me and in my bed. No cribs or baby beds for you. We will change this though due to all that grunting you do that keeps me up all night.
>Your eyes are finally turning to what I think will be green like mine and your bubba's eyes.

You are so laid back and peaceful! But when you do get mad, you do the "billy goat" cry and I can't get to you fast enough. Can't wait to see what the next 4 weeks bring.

Two weeks!

I'm a few days behind! This past Thursday, Tonya and I adventured to Temple with two four year olds and 1 2 week old. It was time for Owen's 2 week check up. In the past two weeks he has grown an inch and gained 6ozs. Boy is he a chunk. He already holds his head up really well and stands up on his legs with very little help from us. He coos and is finally making eye contact. I really can't believe he has only been here for two weeks. It seems like it's been forever and that life wasn't complete without him. I'm pretty lucky! Carsyn calls him Superman, Cutter calls him Super Turtle, and Clark and I call him turtle or monkey.

This picture makes me laugh! He is so serious.
Again, he is one serious kid! But soooo CUTE!

Owen's First Trip to the Ag Shop

Yes, I actually documented this. This is a huge deal to Cutter and Carsyn and I know it will be to Owen someday too. Please excuse Cutter!(the kid on the left with his hands in inappropriate places during a picture) He has an infected chigger bite you know where! An infection that requires an antibiotic! Let me say this was a huge first for a mom of 3 boys. It was quite shocking. If only I could post pictures and a description of that, so you would know exactly what I'm talking about.

Owen's Hobbies!

I cuddle with my monkey in my bouncer while watching Dora with my big brothers.(I might take a little nap!)
I cuddle with my monkey in my crib while I sleep!

I cuddle up with my Mommy while I sleep!

I like to sleep in Mommy and Daddy's bed during my nap!
I sleep a lot, eat a lot, and need a lot of diaper changes!
