He Likes Me . . .

He really likes me.
Owen actually fell asleep cuddling with me tonight. I can't remember the last time he willingly fell asleep with me. He has at church a few (like 3) times by force but never just cuddling at home after given the option of sleeping by himself. I know I shouldn't encourage this behavior especially since it was so hard to break Nahlia of it. It's just so sweet. He rolled over put his arm around my neck and fell asleep. I just love him.

Halloween High Five

Today while playing outside Owen wandered into our Friends yard that is decorated for Halloween. He loves their dog and was trying to pet it through the fences but when the dog ran away he headed for the decorations, skeleton arms chained together and reaching from their graves. He processed to give them all high fives. What else would a one year old boy do with them. When I asked what he was doing he just smiled at me.
That's a Happy Halloween.

My Wonder Baby

Over about the last week or so Nahlia and I have noticed Owen using a lot more words. While doing a little shopping we decided to count them. I'm leaving out some the words that Nahlia claims to have heard like embarrassed and lines of songs he has sung with her.
dog - he also makes this grunting sound that I think is he's bark but is more of a grunt
cat - along with this adorable little more song like than meow like sound
He is 13 months as of yesterday and I'm amazed. Seems like everyday he says something new. It's very excited and sad at the same time because he's my baby.

Well I'm pretty much covered in them and Nahlia has noticed.  
She has NONE.
It's something she brought up a long time ago and we've been waiting for her to get some freckles. Then Owen was born with one little freckle on his back, which was very sad for her because she still didn't have any.
Well her dreams have come true not only does she have one she has two.
Can you see it? on her neck.
The other one is on her knee.
Congrats sweetie you have a freckle!

Grandpa Stewart

Nathan's Grandpa Stewart has passed away after a long hard decline. For as long as I've known Nathan Grandpa has been bedriden, atleast 6 years. It of course is very sad but I can't help but feel happy for him. The storie's I've been told about him, he lived a very full and active life and I always felt he was trapped in his aged body. 
The people gathered to honor his life was comprized of mostly nieghbors and friends, which speaks volums about the kind of person he was. His daughter told about how she remembers when he would come home from work and the first thing he did was find grandma and give her a kiss, everyday. That was my favorite story.

Owen 6 Months

Little Owen has about 10 different nick names -
Little O
Osie Bagosie
Owen Bowen
Rosie (from his dad - Osie to Rosie)
O dawg
Osie Shmosie
ok 9 names that I can think of at the moment.
He still smiles and laughs all the time. Loves to eat his baby food. He also wants any food that you have. In particular drinks. He will grab a drink out of you hands so fast and he actually does pretty well drinking out of it. I've had to get use to his fast hands. He grabs at everything. We've had some close calls but he's so fast when I was walking by a basket and he pulled the whole thing off the counter. It was at a party and it was full of donut holes. He's sitting up and rolling but doesn't really care for it. Daddy is his favorite person. He reached out to Nate for the first time and to me shortly after. Just looking at Nahlia gets him all worked up. He'll start laughing and wiggling and climbing all over you if she looks at him. We took him to the indoor pool and he loves the water. We may have two fishies on our hands. He also loves the bath.
