letter to baby

Dear baby Owen,

You are 6 months old now and really starting to get quite the little personality!  Celebrating your brother's 3 year birthday and you being six months, I've realized that you two are growing at incredible rates of speed.  Slow down, boss.  Slow.down.

You started daycare this month and you really seem to fit right in.  I was super nervous because I could not for the life of me get you to take a bottle.  You fought it tooth and nail, but the very first day when I picked you up, they said you took the bottle like a champ.  You just like to give your mother a nervous breakdown.  I see how this is going to play out.

We started you on solid foods and you really like avocado and butternut squash, but then you got sick and stopped eating solids all together.  You won't open your mouth.  You tighten your lips together, make a fist and yell at us until we stop trying to feed you.  So my life is consistent upon getting you to eat again.  Don't make me crazy!!

You're sitting up pretty good, but if something gets your attention, you topple over.  You haven't quite mastered how to get back up.  You really do like sitting up though and think it's much better if you have toys all around.  Luke even plays with you, but he doesn't like to share his trains.  We'll work on that.

You still aren't sleeping through the night and I'm really starting to get worn out with the multiple times I'm up with you.  I finally started making your daddy take a shift and that has helped, but when we stay at M and Pa's, we're on our own and I'm running around in a daze.  You love to be swaddled, but you're a master at getting your arm out and knocking out your pacifier.  It's loads of fun :)

I can't believe you're half a year old.  You are such an amazing addition to our family and we love you so much!

Mom and Dad
