Well, my lil’ man has turned two. I cannot believe my baby is becoming more and more independent each day. Owen’s independence makes me kind of sad, but he still needs mom and dad a lot so that is good too. We took the kids and my mom to the Jenks Aquarium the afternoon of Owen’s birthday. The kids had a great time looking at all the fish and going in the shark tunnel. One fish splashed Tim, and Owen quickly started pointing and telling the fish “no-no” – it was very cute. We really had a quiet birthday and it was nice. Owen enjoyed his monster cookies on his actual birthday – he got icing all over the place.
We celebrated his birthday with family on Jan 2nd with Will. Owen got an awesome train table from his Grandma and a Sweetpea3 (first MP3 player) from Nana and Papa. He loved his gifts. Owen now walks around with his new “choo-choos” and plays on the train table nightly. The Sweetpea3 was a definite hit – this kids LOVES music. Owen specifically enjoys Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles. He puts the mp3 player to his ear and just dances around the house – it is absolutely adorable. At night time he wants the mp3 player in his bed and not on his dresser – he is so opinionated (I wonder where he gets that?). As such, the mp3 player has miraculously disappeared before bedtime as I do not need him rolling over and waking up the house in the middle of the night. Ha – wouldn’t that be a treat!
After his birthday, we welcomed in 2010. This year, Josh starts Kindergarten (another milestone that is breaking mommy’s heart – he cannot be ready – can he?). Owen is going to start potty training – yippee! To be diaper free again … ahhhhh … sigh. As for me and Tim we are preparing for Tim’s busy season – yuck. Tim is preparing to work some crazy hours and I am preparing to be a single mom for awhile. I just have to remember it is only a few months and it is over – well, not really – but we like to pretend. ;o)
Well, until next time.
