Owen is never ending energy. He leaves a trail wherever he goes. He also loves to be my little helper. Whatever mommy is doing, he wants to do too. This morning while he was eating breakfast, I started unwrapping caramels to make some turtles. All of a sudden, eating oatmeal lost its appeal. As soon as he was finished, Owen hopped up on my chair to help mommy with her task. At first he just wanted to eat them, but then he got the hang of it quite well. He probably ended up unwrapping almost half the bag for me.
Yesterday at lunch, Jimmy spotted a cardinal out our kitchen window. Owen watched and watched it until it flew away. When the bird flew away, Owen turned around at asked for "more."
Oh, and by the way, I've graduated....
from "mama" to "mommee."

Here's a few pictures of our little ones. And, the best part is, I didn't even stage the ones of the two of them! Owen wanted up on the couch, so I helped him up. He sat there with me while we talked and he ate his raisins. Every once in a while, he'd reach over to give his baby sis a hug or kiss.

A second or two later and she looked up at me and sort of strained her neck to look towards Owen saying, "I saw your little guy eye-ing something in there and I just couldn't resist," and pulled out a toy truck. "Happy Thanksgiving," she said.
How sweet....she made both Owen and I's day. :)

...doing "boy" things...
you know, like watching tractors and animals on youtube.
Jimmy took yesterday off work because I was up all night with the flu and in no shape to be taking care of Owen. I slept pretty much all day, and the boys played. Owen had a blast having Daddy around all day to dote on him. I kept hearing "Dada, dada" whenever I'd wake up enough to hear them playing. I'm thankful they had the extra time together. I think Jimmy enjoyed being "Mr. Mom."
Thankfully, Lilly is waiting to make her grand debut until I get better. I can't imagine trying to go through labor at the same time as fighting the flu. Hopefully, now I'm on the up-swing and she can come sometime Thanksgiving week! Pray the rest of our family stays healthy for her arrival.

I think Owen likes our new refrigerator as much as I do. His favorite feature is the ice coming out of the dispenser on the door. Whenever he hears someone dispensing ice/water out of it, he comes running to watch. Recently, he started asking for "ice"....ALL the time! Don't worry, we give him TINY pieces of crushed ice that practically melt as soon as he gets them to he mouth.
The footage on this video isn't the greatest, but it was the best I could get last night. He was sooo wiggly and kept getting waaay to close to the camera.
Here's a few things to "decode" in this video:
1. His reference to "hand"--clenching his hands. We were reading a book earlier in the evening with a hand in it and this was his way to sign "hand."
2. His newest word- "ice"
3. "mees"--is his current "please". It's a combination for "more" and "please" right now....we'll get there :)
