  • Have a girl's weekend while Owen has a boy's weekend
  • Go to the children's museum
  • Celebrate Daddy
  • Go to the park
  • Have a BBQ
  • Eat snow cones
  • Go swimming
  • Play in Nana & Pops' new sandbox
  • Build a swing set in the backyard (shh.. this is a surprise for the babe's) ;)

My First Mother's Day

My first mother's day was definitely one to remember! I was so spoiled by Owen, my husband and my family! I really don't want to brag about gifts... but I found this one 'hiding' the night before in the garage, so Jer decided to give it to me early.
My husband spoiled me and got me the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.. it was also a combined 2nd anniversary present.

After breakfast in bed, we went over to my parent's for Sunday funday hanging out in their pool! Owen made my mom this...

Taking a little siesta under a palm tree.
And napping again after dinner. (This kid has a tough life) ;)

Mother's Day 2011 was so special and everyone made me feel very loved. I thank God every day for my happy and healthy little boy and am so thankful I get to be his mommy.

Five Six and Seven

Months old that is... I am combining Owen's 5 6 & 7 month milestones in to one post!

Owen turned 5 months old while we were visiting Disney World! How many spoiled babies can say that? He was almost turning over days before, but actually rolled from front to back and then back to front on his 5 month birthday! We took him to a spring training Astros game against the Yankees and we had so much fun. He was a little scared when the crowd starting cheering for A Rod, but then passed out on his daddy's shoulder soon after.

We had a little celebration for Owen's 1/2 birthday! He turned 6 months old on April 6th. I made some 'half decorated' cupcakes and invited our best friends over for some lunch and play time! We had hot dogs, mac & cheese, and red velvet cupcakes. We played outside with bubbles because it was such a nice day. Owen is modeling his robot PJs in his picture.. thanks Jamie for the fabulous find! :)

Owen just turned 7 months old on the 6th! We didn't really do anything special, just loved on him like always! ;) I'm not sure if it's just me, but I see a huge difference from 6 to 7 months old. He has really come alive and his personality is awesome. He is so outgoing and loves when strangers come up and talk to him. His hair is also growing so quickly! He is definitely a strawberry blond and I love it. I say this all the time, but this is definitely my favorite age so far. He is sleeping through the night, can sit up on his own and is soaking things up like a sponge. It only took me a day to teach him to clap his hands when we say 'Yay' or sing Patty Cake! I love it. I am obsessed with him. Obsessed.
