Brightest Color

So, he is the new love of my life, but not so sure if he is the brightest crayon in the box. The other day little Owen was laying in his bassinet crying. No big deal. But then he started more like screaming. So, I checked on him and he had ahold of his hair and was pulling it. It took a good effort on my part to get him to free himself.

It was sweet and memorable. If only I had a camera.

1st Dip

Well we went to the swimming pool today. It is an indoor pool. So, we didn't have to worry about the sun. The air was so Hot. The water was pretty cold.
He enjoyed it. He was nice and calm until it was just too cold for him. We met Meredith there and little Connor showed me a good view of what Owen will be like in a little over a year.

He may be ready but I am not

So, last night me and Owen got up to eat. Owen fell asleep only after1 oz. And normally as soon as I lay him down and if he hasn't eaten enough he would wake right up. So, I decided to lay him in his crib while I went to the bathroom. This is the first time he had been in his crib because he sleeps in the bassinet next to our bed. Well, he didn't wake up, he kept on sleeping. That has never happened before. I didn't want to pick him up and move him to the bassinet because I was sure he would wake up. And since my bed was calling my name, I set up the baby monitor and headed to bed.

I told Jon once I got into bed that he was in his crib. And he said "Noooo" "can you hear him?" I told him I set up the monitor. And he was back to sleep. But I couldn't get back to sleep. I just felt sad that he was so far away. And I couldn't pick my head up to see if he was ok after every peep. To make sure he hadn't spit up and make sure he was still breathing. So, I spent most of the hour laying and watching the lights on the monitor for each coo he made.

I decided after that, that I am just not ready for him to be off on his own in his room. Boy, if I have a hard time leaving him in his crib, I can't even imagine how hard it will be to send him off to his first day of kindergarden. And what about college?

Pictures from 4th of July

We spent the day with Jon's family. Everyone loved Owen of course. And he was good of course.

Here are some pictures.

Another day

So last night, little Owen slept from 1am till 5:30. Go Owen. In the past 4 weeks we have nursed some, pumped a lot, and supplemented. Bottles have been such a problem. Milk spilling all over the place! I have tried all types of nipples. And they still spill. So, today was the first day that I nursed only. I was afraid to do that because I didn't think my supply was enough. But after nursing every 3 hours he acted a little hungry so I topped him off with a little formula but then he spit it up. So, I guess he is getting enough from me. Whoo hoo... Along with that Owen has stayed awake pretty much all day.

Pictures from today.

Still Perfect

Yep. Little Owen is still perfect. Some nights are a little longer than others. But for the most part, he gets up at midnight, 2 am and 5am. He is more alert during the day, but still only seems to cry if he is hungry.

July 2nd he had his first shower with mommy. He likes the shower very much. He doesn't cry until you take him out of the shower into the cold. And after he calms down and gets warm I can usually lay him in the bassinet and he just lays down nice and calm and looks around in amazement at the world around him.

Also on the 2nd we went and heard Jon's friend Don play bluegrass at this small resturaunt. Jon was all worried we would have to leave early because Owen might not like the loud music. "Silly Jon, you know we have a perfect baby". He sat and listened and looked around and then fell asleep. And it's not that it was quiet, it was nice and loud. And the only time he jumped was when some of the other people clapped really loud.

Here is a picture from that night.
