New pictures!

We are posting some new pictures to the album to the right! Andy took this good one, but then the little guy started crying, so we are postponing the photo session for another time.

2 months!

Owen is now 2 months old! Wow! We are a little more relaxed now that things are more routine. We can count on him to be awake a little after feeding and then get a good 1-2 hour nap in. We have been venturing out for breakfast and dinner a bit while he is in this routine. Owen had his 2 month check up this week. Are you ready for this?..... Owen weighs 9 pounds 8 ounces and is 22 1/4 inches. He has gone up to the 10th percentile in weight and 25th in height! I guess nursing is going well :) He had some shots- he cried for 30 seconds during the first poke and stopped after the nurse was done. He did wonderful that night and the next day too! Hopefully this continues.

Smile Factory

This little man is smiling like crazy now. It makes mommy happy :) He is so fun to watch and play with. I am glad I get to be home for a while longer to hang out with him some more. My teacher pals and students started back to school this week. I went in for Open House to see the kiddos. They all had grown up so much over the summer!

Sorry to all of our devoted followers out there. We did not get around to posting last weekend :( Been having too much fun with Owen! He has been doing awesome. Making huge strides in the feeding arena. He has been nursing full time now for an entire week! We are so proud of him. This is so much easier on mommy- maybe this is why Owen is so happy... because mommy is happy! (notice that in the picture he loves mommy) He turned 2 months this weekend. We will post pictures soon in his car. Owen and I spent the weekend at Gma and Gpa L's house because Andy and Grandpa Strayer were working on installing a 16 foot band of windows in mommy's soon to be amazingly, beautiful kitchen. The house is still a mess, but the windows are a spectacular sight!

We go to the pediatrician this week for a checkup, weigh in and some shots. Shhh.... don't tell Owen.

What's Up Dog?

Owen looking cool in his doggie hat after a bath :) He doesn't seem to mind wearing a hat and looks pretty cute. His hats fit now since his brain has been developing exponentially over the last several weeks! Thought I would stick a math word in for my students out there that are reading :)

This is the noise in my ear as I type this post... and I thought a mosquito buzzing in my ear was a nuisance! Other than the crying fits Owen is currently going through, this has been a pretty good week. Mr. Bubbles is still packing on the pounds and his neck is getting a lot stronger. It may take a few more months before he's actually able to support the entire weight of is large cranium. He's now up to 8 lbs and 21 inches long which puts him in the 3rd percentile. He's so close to setting a new littleness standard!

Finally, he's cried himself to sleep. As long as I don't move for the next hour we should be good!

oops... I moved, here we go again!!!

We went to the cardiologist for a follow up visit on Wed. and he was very happy with Owen's progress. He even said no more Lasix, so you know what that means... no more meds! The picture shows him getting an Echocardiogram. Looks complicated, but was very fast and painless :)

Since he's doing so well mom is starting to get a little more adventurous with the little guy and starting to take him out into the fresh air (no he hasn't been locked in the basement). He made his first trip to Heather's Cafe, had his first Gator ride at Grandma and Grandpa Leuzinger's, and even got to meet his cousins Jane and Evan for the first time today. Evan is only 3 months older but next to Owen he looks like he's five, or maybe it's Owen that looks like he's negative 2 months...

Owen has been a wonderful new addition to the family. I even cleaned poo off the bottom of his foot today, how's that for bonding?!?
