Baby Owen ~11 Months Old~

No sign this time. He won't hold still long enough to get a picture with even a portion of the piece of paper. Notice I had to trap him with my legs to get this picture.
Highlights in the life of Owen include:
  • He eats anything and everything (good when he's in the highchair, bad when he's on the floor)
  • He has started sleeping through the night every few nights (all that teasing makes the rest of our nights really unpleasant)
  • He stands up for little bits of time, then collapses to the floor in laughter because he thinks it's so funny
  • Come to think of it, he thinks a lot of things are funny and laughs a lot and it's this funny little "eh-eh-eh-eh-eh" laugh
  • He's still on the move, all over everywhere, crawling like crazy, including up the stairs if they aren't blocked off
  • He loves throwing balls, especially on the wood floor, crawling after them, throwing them again, crawling after them ...
  • He loves pushing cars around on the floor (I don't know why, but I'm surprised he gets this concept already)
  • He is quite the musician; he still shakes everything and hits things together until they make the loudest noise possible; he has added the alligator xylophone to his repertoire and he can play the kazoo like nobody's business (seriously!)
  • He babbles a little, but still doesn't talk much; he'll say "ma-ma-ma-ma" and "da-da-da-da" and try to copy some sounds he hears; he coos along sweetly when you sing and he'll copy Putty when he meows with a little "ow"
  • He's the sweetest, cuddliest (when he wants to be) little kid and I love him to pieces

At least you don't have to throw the ball for him. He's getting so big.
