first tooth

So, after almost 10 months of saying "I think he's getting a tooth"--it's here! And just let me say, it's been a ROUGH couple days. The weird part is which tooth it is: the top tooth, first one to the left of where his two front teeth will be. (those two buggers are just about to poke through too)

Please note a couple observations in this flattering picture--(from top to bottom)
#1 Owen's shiner--he had a little spill in nursery this morning while I was at bible study
#2 My blueberry stained fingernail--we just got finished having a late lunch/early supper because nothing sounded good to the poor guy earlier today, and of course
#3 Owen's pearly white in all it's glory!

(He was quite cooperative in letting me take his picture--a full tummy makes for a happy baby.)

who could resist

Though today was sorta a rough day here at the Hankins' household--well, particularly for little Owen--how could a momma resist a face who looks up with such longing to be held??

Reaching takes a substantial amount of concentration

Sunday pm

Owen had fun this evening putting objects in the middle of his exersaucer then crawling into it to retrieve his treasures.

Baldy?? Not for long. When you look close, you'll see my wisps coming in more and more every day.

Owen is tuckered out today. He has been sleeping like crazy! This morning he got up at 7:45 (usual time), went down for his nap at 9:45, slept until 12:30 (normally he would wake up before noon), went down for another nap at 3:00 and is still sleeping....wonder how much longer he will sleep??
Mama was able to get lots of things on the "to do" list completed as a result: the house cleaned (check), taxes filed (check), a few other little "house managing" things (check, check, check), and a dessert made for dinner tonight. (mmmm...check) :)

little man in the mirror

Hey?!? Who's THAT guy? He's pretty good looking, wouldn't ya say?

C'mon, lets go play some chase around the house---it's my favorite game!

Actually, I think I'd like to eat you...just one little bite...hold still for me...

Aw, leaving already? ...Well, good talkin to ya...see ya around!

in and out

Hurray for high speed internet at our house!!! What a luxury! Now, I have no excuse for not posting updates more frequently!

NOW I can do it!


Cabinets, bookshelfs, oh--and how could I forget--his absolute favorite room--the bathroom (we've had to keep a gate up because he makes a beeline for the toilet)

Around the house...

Here's a little blip of what Owen is up to all day long:

Eating (the "blueberry monster" face--one of Owen's very favorite foods)

Crawling all over the place (he was obsessed with my necklace today)

Pulling himself up on everything
