About Me


Saturday, June 13, 2009


First of all, a sad tale - Owen got his first bump on his head today! He was standing up, leaning on a toy, pulled it towards him, and fell backwards and hit his head on another toy. I think it upset me more than him - he only cried for about 30 seconds. He's totally fine, but every time I look at that bump, I'm re-traumatized. :)

Anyway, these two videos are of Owen dancing. He started doing this a while ago, but we haven't really caught it until now (he stops when he sees the camera). Whenever there's music playing, whether it's from a toy or from some music we have playing, he starts dancing.

This next video is of what we call "the Spike". Whenever Owen gets picked up (when he's happy), he kicks with his toes pointed. It actually really hurts if he kicks you - he's got some strong legs. It's really funny to watch, though.

Owen and I are heading out to CA tomorrow morning, and Matt will be joining us next Thursday. I'll probably not update while we're there, but I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!

Owen is so cute!! I love "the spike." I have fun in Cali!

Owen's quite the dancer! And that spike thing is hilarious. I can totally see how it would hurt if he kicked you. I'm sorry to hear that he bumped his head; it's hard to see your baby fall!

Matthew loved watching the movies. He kept trying to touch Owen. I love the dancing. So cute!
I didn't realize you were coming to California so soon. Have a fun visit and we'll probably see you Friday or Saturday.
