we are here in michigan till monday... and we are having a great time. my grandmother is totally in love with owen. he can do no wrong and his screams are music to her ears, it means he's awake. which by the way, every morning he has woken up at 7am, and memee is waiting right outside our door. usually brian and i hang out with owen for about an hour after he gets up... but not here in MI... she grabs him right out of bed and takes him to feed him. it's great... i just go back to sleep. all memee wants to do is cuddle and love on owen. as i try to put owen down for his nap, she basically hangs onto him and is dragged up the steps after us saying "no... dont put him down.... no....." we are coming home monday, and i hope that our flight is less stressful than what is was when we came. yeah, nothing like a baby screaming bloody murder on a packed flight. i was that mother who every person hates. my sister came with us, especially to help me with owen while we fly.... but when he started screaming she plugged her ears with her fingers. ahhh, nothing like a high pitched scream to go along with the screaming of jet engines.

always new

well... having your kid grow up is very rewarding, of course, but also much more time consuming. owen is now eating. and i guess he's eating alot. 2 packs of whatever i give him, and then a bottle to top him off. he also started taking 2-3 hour naps. why didnt we start stuffing him earlier! lets just say i get a lot more done during the day. tonight when i went in to check on him and say goodnight, i saw that he was sleeping on his stomach. i couldnt believe it. 3 months ago i tried putting him on his belly to sleep and he basically screamed bloody murder into his mattress. so i guess he has now OFFICIALLY OFFICIALLY learned to roll over. i even got nervous with him on his belly, so i rolled him onto his back. he just looked up at me and smiled, and rolled over again and went to sleep. i think he will be just fine....

month 5.5

dear owen.
you are growing so fast these days. all of a sudden you can roll over (yes, still by being "tricked" into it) and eat bananas and prunes. i'm not too into the prunes, you get stinky poo from them, but you seem to love them. i cant believe that you absolutely love to bounce in your jumper. today we were over at the new house, working on fixing it up, and all you wanted to do was go up and down, up and down. i think you were content for an hour or so. you do a few warmup jumps and then off you go! you're still working on trying to sit up, but i think that will come very soon. dont be frustrated. you love dogs... which i'm very happy about... means we will be able to get one, just dont tell your daddy... we'll just bring it home one day. but, you laugh and laugh when you see a dog, you stick your hand out there to be licked, and then stick it in your mouth... which i'm sorry, but thats gross... thank goodness we're not germ freaks.

i hope you dont get a complex, but your nickname nowadays is "Michelin", cause of your arms... i think your arms look more like the marshmallow man from Ghostbusters. when you're older we'll watch it together, it's not too scary and it's one of my favorites, along with goonies and dirty dancing, which your daddy doesnt like. you can watch amelie with him.... when you're much older. but, the first person who called you michelin was ryan uhler... he loves you so much. everytime we go over there, he holds you and walks you around the yard. i'm sure you both talk up a storm!

speaking of talking... you talk so much more lately, especially to babies your size. aunt missy and aubrey came over and all you did was laugh and talk to aubrey, very loudly... you were being a bit forward, trying to grab her face and all. next week we are going to travel to michigan for the first time since you were born. we're going to fly and aunt mer mer is coming with us. memee is getting everything ready and is so excited to see you again.

your daddy was holding you the other night and i was sitting there looking at you looking at me, and i was thanking God for you. i was wondering how the Lord is going to use you in this life. what great things He is going to call you to do. i pray that you hear Him and follow His ways.
love, mama

good visit

we had a bunch of visitors this weekend at the new house. the mannis came over and their daughter decided to practice kissing our son. the joyces brought stuffed shells for lunch. the shusters stopped by to check things out. also, matt and cigi dropped in. and i think that was just in one day... we loved having everyone over, and so did owen.... obviously.

tricked or taught?

brian says that i have tricked our son into rolling over. all i do is hold a toy up above him and in a voice like i'm talking to a dog, saying "come on owen.... do you want the tooooyyyyy??? come on... you can do it..."
