Owen, Owen, Owen...where do I start with that little bundle of joy. He has had a rough start at life. A week after he was born and spent one night in his new bed he was evicted and sent back to his grandmother's house away from his Daddy, and 2 big brothers. Then he had to deal with RSV on his own. In addition he has had to figure out how to cope with not only mommy and daddy trying to help him out but 2 big brothers too. Man the life of a 1 month old. Owen honestly has been an amazing baby. He sleeps through everything. Screaming, yelling, playing, vacuuming, barking, you name it I guarantee he can sleep through it. Owen loves to spend time in his bouncer, swing, bassinet, mommy's arms, daddy's arms and in the arms of anyone else who is willing to hold him. The place he is least fond of is his bathtub. Although I must admit he is getting better :)
This is a picture of Owen and Ethan at Dr. Cartwright's office. The nurses there were awesome! I had plenty of help and they went out of there way to accommodate us. You cannot see Owen in this picture but he is behind Ethan in the car carrier. A picture of him in the car carrier is below.

Not the best picture, but I did not have time to take another one. He was a real champ! He weighed in at 8 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long. Owen has gained weight and grow so much since he was born. He goes again for a 2 month check up. At that point I should have some percentiles and new numbers. I look forward to seeing how much he has grown and changed in just that short period of time.

Owen's bragging points:

1. He usually only gets up once in the night time. If we feed him between 10:30 and 11:00 then he is good until 2:30 - 3:30 in the morning. Then he will sleep again until 6:00 when everyone else gets up.

2. Up to 6 oz. every 3 to 5 hours. Granted sometimes he falls asleep during the feeding but not for too long.

3. Owen has had his first play date with Colin. I will post pictures of the 2 of them soon. Colin is my best friend Jessica's little man. He was born the day before Owen. They are going to have many, many, many more play dates together in the future.

I enjoyed the pictures of Owen. Boy have they changed so much in the past month. Can't wait for another playdate.
