Catching up

We haven't been doing a whole lot beyond the daily work and play, so I don't have too much to report. I wanted to put up some videos of Owen, however, because he's growing so much! He's talking in full sentences now, is learning how to swim, loves to play outside, loves to read books and sing songs, and is basically the best little boy we could ever ask for. We love him so much!

We play this game almost every time we're trying to get Owen out of the tub. He hasn't yet figured out that we will always win.

This was the aftermath of our talent at the talent show during the Farrell family reunion. Matt and I decided to do a "Minute to Win It" talent (if you don't know that TV show, look it up - it's pretty entertaining). We chose the one where you have to pull all the tissues out of a box in under one minute so that Owen could help us. The following video is what happened after we were done.... if you listen closely, you can hear Owen yelling "TISSUES!" the whole time. :)

Owen learning how to swim in the hot tub. There is a spot on the marble tiles in the hot tub that looks like a face. Owen calls it "The Scary" (I have no idea where he came up with that). That's what he's saying over and over in the video - he's "swimming to the Scary".

That's all for now. I want to get a good video of him talking, but as soon as I pull out the camera, he starts making cheesy faces and won't talk. Hopefully I'll get one soon. :)
