New tricks...

Here are some pictures of Owen's new tricks. We have some videos to show you too, but they take forever to load, so this is all for now. :) First, Owen now sleeps on his stomach. We were worried the first night, because one of the things you hear most often from the doctors/nurses/books/etc. is "Put your baby on his back to sleep!!!" So when we found him like this, we flipped him over, and within 10 seconds, he had flipped back on to his stomach in his sleep. This is how he likes to sleep now. :)

I have no idea how this is comfortable, but apparently, it is.

He got stopped mid-roll at the side of his crib.

He traveled all the way up his crib and slept with his head in the corner. And yes, he's wearing Santa pajamas, and it's June. I know. They won't fit in December, though.

The other day, I turned on a flashlight for Owen. He would look at the flashlight, then point it at the wall, crawl over and touch the light on the wall, then crawl back and put his hand over it. It was pretty cute, and fun to see him learning.

Owen's got this thing with socks. They never stay on his feet - he pulls them off and they go directly in his mouth. They stay like that the whole time while he plays, and he gets mad if you try to take the sock out of his mouth. He even pulled off another little boy's sock last night and stuck it in his mouth. Silly boy.

Haha, we put my swim cap on Owen's head. It made his face all squishy, and Matt and I were crying we were laughing so hard.

While trying to pull himself up on the chair, Owen slid underneath, and then he started doing pull-ups.

This is what I see when I open the door to get Owen up from a nap.

He stands up on everything now!

That's it for now. I've got two videos that hopefully I'll put up later, but for right now, Owen needs a playmate! See ya!
