I have a minor obsession lately.. Chalk pens! @jenniferggreen posted about them on Twitter & I went out and grabbed some! She posted a picture of a 'Christmas Bucket List' and I made my Own version on our chalkboard.
Owen is only 14 months- so he is a spectator in a lot of things- the list is just for fun and mostly for mommy. :)
My mom and I visited Old Town Spring a few weeks ago & I fell in love with this little Santa Letter Chalkboard. This is also just for fun- I can't wait for when Owen is older & he can tell me what he wants for Christmas!
Hope everyone is having a great Monday morning! Owen's a little under the weather with a stuffy nose- so we're laying low.
My BFF Ivy is preggers (yay) and although I was in her exact same shoes a little over 14 months ago, I find that I have forgotten most things about my pregnancy! I've heard this happens to a lot of people- but I want to start writing things down, so as not to forget the 'the little things'.
Jer and I were talking last night about what a joy Owen has been and just how much fun he is. Of course I have my days with him that I'm counting the minutes until Jer gets home from work so that I can pee in private (sorry if TMI). But lately, I find that once he goes to bed, I start to miss him. Sorry if this is coming off sappy or like I'm saying Owen is the most well behaved child, because I assure you, he isn't. But I am so in love with him. And I find myself falling more in love with him every day. He is my joy.
We had a lunch date yesterday. Just Owen and I. He loves to dip his food in 'di di' or dip dip. This day, he happened to have ketchup for his 'di di'...
He's also really into puppies. Every stuffed animal he sees is a 'puh-ay'!
Also, every single stranger he sees while we are out and about is 'dada'. Older women, teenage boys, cashier at Target, he does not discriminate. He loves his dada more than anything! He also loves wearing Dada's shoes around the house.
He started walking at about 13 1/2 months, but started full on walking at 14 months. He's also talking all the time. It sounds like gibberish- but he says it with such purpose and determination, that I would love to know what he's saying.
Some not so nice things he's been doing are playing just a little rough, but I know that's normal for a 1-year-old boy. He pinches sometimes and hits, although most of the time it is just to get your attention. When he does it, we tell him 'no' and 'nice hands'. He knows what both of those mean and usually gets his feelings hurt and then lays his head on whatever or whoever he was pinching or 'love tapping' aka hitting. ;)
Well- we're off to celebrate a friends birthday over lunch, hope you have a nice Thursday!
