Owen's Birth Announcement

Since I'm pretty sure everyone has received Owen's birth announcement, I will post it for all to see!!

Owen is sleeping soundly in his swing, while I do laundry and pick up the house! When Jer gets home from work (he's working a half day) we are heading over to my parent's because my brother Blake and his GF Taylor are driving in from Lubbock! This will be the first time Taylor meets Owen and the first time Blake will get to hold Owen. My sister and her family arrive late Wednesday night, so we will see them first thing Thursday. I am so excited to spend Thanksgiving with my entire family! I could not be more blessed.

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

1 Month

Goodness, i'll catch up on this thing some day. Guess who is 1 month old? Actually, he's already 6 weeks, but let's just pretend for a minute!! Here is my beautiful boy all dressed up in his Tech gear!

I feel like he's already changed so much from this picture! Here are his stats:

Height: 23 inches
Weight: 11 pounds 8 ounces
Clothes: 0-3

Owen is built just like his Daddy! He is long and lean. His 0-3 month clothes are getting a little short on him, but are loose around the middle.

Right now, he is awake a lot more during the day and he is cooing and making lots of noises at us. I don't want to 'jinx' anything, but he is a really good baby. He only cries when he is hungry or has gas. And this baby gets gas! When he toots, Jer will first look at me to see if I did it, because they do not sound like baby farts. He is smiling at us all the time and loves to be naked! He loves his bath time and baby massages at night. We are noticing that he favors his left side and tries to suck on his left thumb, so we'll see if he's a south paw like his Aunt Amber.

He gets his first set of shots on Friday and this mommy is not looking forward to it! If he feels up to it, we're gonna meet The Glovers at La Centerra this Saturday evening for the Christmas tree lighting! We're excited, because we have stayed at home for the most part since he hasn't had his shots.

Alright, fatty is hungry, so I must go! Nice talking to you all again. ;)

Owen's First Halloween

For Owen's first Halloween, I wanted him to be something cute and cuddly! What is cuter or cuddlier (<--- word?!) than a puppy?? I'll tell ya... an almost one-month-old as a puppy! He actually had three Halloween outfits, but only one costume. The orange onesie was what he slept in and the ghost outfit was his Halloween 'day' outfit. I may have gone a tad overboard. ;) Oh and if you can't tell, Lola was a flower!

Owen spent a total of 15 minutes in his puppy costume because it was too hot. It was made out of fleece and this little boy sweats his booty off in anything more than a cotton onesie!
We spent the evening with my parents, watching Halloween movies and passing candy out to the trick-or-treaters! It was the perfect first Halloween for my baby boy.

Owen's Newborn Pictures

Here are Owen's FABULOUS newborn photos taken by the incredible Lindsay Perry. I could go on and on about how amazing these pictures are, but I will let you see for yourself.

We are finally getting into a routine around these-here-parts and I promise to make regular blogging a part of that routine. Hold me accountable!
