I swear Owen is constantly telling me when things are hot (and most recently, cold). But whenever I try to catch it on camera, I'm too late or he's not in the mood to "perform". So, over the course of the last couple days, this is the best I could capture...but you get the idea. :)
On Monday (our Saturday), we took a family trip to the park.

--FINALLY sparking an interest in books!!! He is beginning to go to his book basket and look at books and babble as he turns the pages, be entertained by books during car rides, see library books on the kitchen table and want to read them, bring me books and plop into my lap to read them with me, and imitate my inflections as I read his favorite books. YAY!!!
--enthralled with sitting on chairs. He just feels like such a big boy to sit on a chair like mommy and daddy.
--not fighting diaper changes!! Whew! Those were like wrestling matches for a while! Yesterday, I told Owen it was time to change his diaper. He walked into his bedroom, laid down in the middle of the floor (where we have been doing the changes as of late) and laid nice and still while I followed him into his room and did his diaper change. At first I thought it just might be a coincidence...but guess what?? ..He did it again later in the day and again for all his changes today! What a victory!!

Notice Owen with is "snipped" paci below
Then later that afternoon we had to go run a few errands. When we go home, we went about our usual routine. I got Owen out of his car seat and set him down to grab some things out of the van. I brought in a load of stuff inside and left the door open behind me because he usually just follows me right inside. I started to unload a few things from their bags when I noticed Owen hadn't followed me in. I looked out the window to find....
...Oh, the joy of lawn mowing...hopefully he thinks it's this much fun when he's old enough to really mow!
