{ 24 hours }

How can it be that in 24 hours my baby became a big boy!! Last night he pulled up on the couch for the first time. This morning he started crawling forward (we've been doing backwards for a week or 2). And this afternoon I found a tooth on the bottom! HOLY COW. My little man is on a roll. Maybe tonight he'll sleep through the night! haha

First Hair Cut

Some people save the first haircut for when "they have a lot of hair", and that's exactly what we did. Owen was born with a ton of hair, lost very little, and kept growing more!
The night before the big cut!

We took Owen to Pigtails and Crewcuts . It was such a sweet little place. We put him in the police car and he just sat there like a champ! He loved getting sprayed with the water bottle and thought the buzz of shaver was too funny.

Before the haircut Owen had medium brow hair with a lot of red in it. But once we chopped all that dark hair off we found strawberry blond hair hiding underneath. It'll be fun to see what color he really ends up with.

6 Month Updates

How is it possible that you are 6 months already. We had fun celebrating your half year birthday!!

Some Stats:

Weight: ALMOST 21 pounds (95%)

Height: 28 inches (Over 100%)

Clothes: 9-12 month

Diapers: Size 3

Food: Still Breast Fed (we are doing great most days!) and you love your solids. We started solids and 4 months and you just love eating real food everyday. Some favorites include: Sweet Potato, Apples& Pears with Cinnamon, Peas, and Yogurt (any flavor will do). I am making all you food and that has been a lot of fun for me.

Sleep: You still love sleeping with mommy and daddy. If you sleep in our bed you will sleep anywhere from 3-5 hours at a time. But if you are in your crib or pack and play you usually only sleep about 45 mins - an hour. That's ok though. Because we LOVE having you in bed with us. And you still are eating 1 time at night (normal around 1ish).

Activities: Jumpy! Jumpy! Jumpy! It doesn't matter if you are sitting or standing, you are Always bouncing up and down. Your favorite toy is a musical tool bench. You love to sit in front of it and hit it with all your might. You will purposely knock it over and then scoot on your butt up to it (so you can hit it some more).

Favorites: You still LOVE playing with Grandma and Uncle John. They can always get a big smile out of you. Whenever you see your Great Grandma, you never fail to give her your flirty eyes! You seriously love playing with animals. We have to remind you to be gentle (even though you don't know what that means yet). You try to catch Kitty when she run by (and she hates it) and you love playing with Snoop Dog at Grandma and Grandpa's (and she LOVES it!!)

First Katy Rodeo! We can't wait for you to be big enough for the Stick Horse race and Mutton Bustin'
Milestone: Sitting! You started sitting independently at 5 months and 2 weeks. And mastered it by the 6 month mark. Your doctor was surprised at how good you are at it! We knew you were super strong and wanted to be independent asap!

Super Bowl Party Anyone??

Firsts: You got you first haircut! You loved sitting in the special seat and getting your hair sprayed with water.
Great Grandma made you a "fishing shirt"
