a year in review.

by @according2kelly on October 27, 2007

break out the birthday candles & wrap the presents because owen turns ONE today! crazy! he is definitely a little kid now. i may still call him my baby, but he really is a little boy. when i look back i’m amazed at how much he has grown & all the things we’ve done in just one year. o has been to hawaii twice, turkey, greece & france, utah half a dozen times & disneyland more times than i can count. heavens! what a busy little guy! as i watch him, i realize that in so many ways he is exactly like his big brother gavin, but at the same time, they are totally & completely different. little o just likes to sit quietly and take everything in. don’t get me wrong, he can get very, very loud, but he just seems to be really aware & intrigued by his surroundings. he loves to follow gavin around… no matter what tortures gav bestowed upon him, owen is always quick to follow gavin again & again. at one, he almost has four teeth. i say almost, because his two front top & bottom teeth have begun to make an appearance. o seems to be on the verge of walking. he’s at this kinda funny stage… he knows he can walk, he’s done it before, but he’s just not quite sure he wants to… he seems to realize he can actually keep up with gavin when he crawls, as opposed to walking. although, jeff thinks he walks when no one is looking – we’re always finding him standing up, just chilling in the middle of the room. when owsers smiles it’s like watching a cartoon character, his cheeks get all big & puff out to the sides like the are full of marbles. he LOVES to eat. he’ll eat everything in sight, & most nights he would win an eating contest between him & gavin. i love my little guy… i can’t wait to see what this next year brings! i’m so grateful to have him in my life.
