Our 2 month old boy!

Mister Owen -
How on Earth are you 2 months old? In some sense, it seems as though it was just yesterday I was lying in a hospital bed, scared out of my mind and in more pain that I could ever imagine being in. In another sense, that night was light years ago. Our world has been turned upside down, but for the better, and I can't imagine our family without you. You just fit.

You're like you Daddy already in so many ways; your face looks so thoughtful as you ponder your growing world. You are calm and take things in stride. You are so flexible and don't mind the (many) times I hoist you out of your crib still asleep so that we can go somewhere (I know, I know, never wake a sleeping baby). You are like me in many ways too. You are silly and you don't hesitate to show how you feel - happy, sad, mad. You still look so much like me, many people comment on that, but when you make certain faces, I see more of your Dad in you.

At the beginning of this month you had just started to smile and "coo" every once in a while. Now, your "smiley" times are almost predictable and the other night you cooed so much, Daddy and I knew you were talking to us, so we cooed right back. We were laughing hysterically and so were you. Each morning, we play together on your activity gym. You love the lights and the music. You also like when the puppies lay with you and you kick the heck out of Tucker when he lays at your feet. You still don't know how to feel about Lucy licking your face, especially when you have remnants of milk on it. You are starting to fall asleep on your own, although there are times that a lot of crying takes place before hand, but you also are waking up happier, sometimes just talking instead of crying to let me know you are awake.
