diamond lake

today we spent a few hours visiting with my grandmother's friends on a beautiful lake. we enjoyed a pontoon ride and got burnt. what more can you ask for.

meredith, owen and i drove to niles, michigan on saturday. i thought the 11 hour trip with an 18 month old would be harder, but God really does answer prayer! he somehow did amazingly well and da da da dora really help the last 4 hrs pass by quickly, well, for him i guess. da da da dora got a bit on my nerves, actually got quite a bit on my nerves.
the next day we all packed up and took owen to a petting zoo called deer forest. it was pretty ghetto for a petting zoo. i dont think anything has been cleaned or sanitized in decades. i know you cant sanitize wild animals, but at least wipe down the playground that was there. and now looking back at the ferris wheel that i dragged owen on, i can probably be safe to say that it probably wasnt that safe either.

month 18

dear owen,
today you are 18 months old. i havnt written a monthly update in a while, and today i'm actually getting to it the day of! that's what happens when i start my day 2 hrs before you get up.... it's quiet and i can think like a normal human being, without mommy brain.
these past few months have really gone by quick. we've already had vacation and you loved playing all day in nana's lake. you love saying nana's name, but popop is a bit unhappy that you dont even try to say his.
you've also realized this summer that you actually do enjoy the pool. last year it was like trying to put you into something so horrible that all you could do was scream your head off. now you put your head under and try to blow bubbles, it's very cute.

driving in the car has now become an interesting game of hide and seek. all of a sudden i will hear a muffled "mama?!" and when i turn around there you are with your blanket over your head. it's the funniest thing... and then i say "where's owen?" it's fun for about 30 seconds... then you get a bit carried away with the whole thing, the game could last the whole car ride.... i'm not sure how that's going to work for our trip to michigan.
we tried the elmo potty this past month.... and it was a failure. instead of pooping in the potty you decided that pooping on the cabin floor was so much more fun. thats cool, it was nana's carpet anyway.

this morning owen and i played out on the back porch with chalk. i bought the chalk a few months ago with high hopes of seeing my son out on the sidewalk drawing, but that was before i experienced how messy it really can be. i learned then that i dont really like the way chalk feels. kinda wussy, i know.... but owen loves chalk. so, today i decided to suck it up and pull out the box of 24 chalk sticks. yes, 24 not just 8... kinda like the whole crayon experience. we decided to decorate his "house" that now resides on the porch, instead of his room - for some reason he was afraid of it in there. anyway.... we really enjoyed ourselves even though i was totally covered in chalk drawings.
