Owen's new trick

We were doing tummy time with Owen (which he's getting very good at, by the way), and all of a sudden, he rolled over from his stomach to his back! I think it surprised him a little bit - he just laid there with a funny look on his face. We turned him back over, and in a couple minutes, he did it again. He's getting so big, and we love watching him discover new things about himself and his world. We'll try to get a video of it to post.

In other news, Owen and I are off to California tomorrow. We're flying out a couple days before Matt so that we can give him some quiet time to study for his remaining finals. Matt will join us on Saturday morning. We'll be there for all of Christmas break, and we can't wait!

New pictures...

This is the email that I received from grandma Bromley yesterday:


If you know how many times I check your blog for pictures, you would feel sorry for me. I keep thinking you will put some up of the blessing day.


So, in order to brighten her day, here are lots of pictures from the last two weeks, including decorating our Christmas tree, the weekend with our families, the blessing day, and some other random ones.
