What we do for fun

Owen LOVES to dance. He can't help but get up and move almost every time he hears music, and especially likes dancing to the music from his favorite movies. He's especially proud of his booty shake. :) We have a lot of impromtu dance parties in our house.

Owen loves to play games, and balloon tennis is a new favorite around here. Anything that involves running and smacking is bound to be a hit. :) I just taped paper plates to some wooden spoons, blew up a balloon, and we went to town!

Though Owen can be rough-and-tumble at times, he's generally a pretty quiet kid. He LOVES to color and draw, and is very particular and detail-oriented. We've just recently let him start using kid scissors and glue sticks. I caught this video of him cutting happily away. My favorite part of this is his intense concentration - you can see his jaw and mouth working, which is a funny habit he has whenever he's focusing on something. It makes his little dimples come out. :)

Owen also loves to pretend. He's always making his toys talk to each other. He can carry on conversations with them for hours. In this video he's making his stuffed dog talk to his hand (ie - his dinosaur... he makes his hands walk and calls them dinosaurs). He had no idea I was recording him, or that I was even listening. I love catching him doing this - it cracks me up to listen.
