I like to think if my computer wasn't 12 years old, if it didn't freeze up every time I tried to load a picture, I might update my blog more often. As it is, it has taken about half an hour to load the nuggets of cuteness below.
I hope someone sees this and enjoys the results of hair pulling frustration I have endured to post this :)
Little Miss Norah has been loving her dry erase books. She's getting very good at tracing letters and shapes. Her 'guys' are also getting more detailed with hair and glasses lately.

This young man, oh my, he is BUSY. We try to fill our days with activites and outings. For Norah this planning used to just be to alleviate boredom, for Owen its more focused on burning energy!
|he likes to point at everyting just to be sure we know where to look!|
Owen is 16 almost 17 months now. I have plenty of mommy guilt over not documenting his milestones as well as I did Norah's. I console myself knowing he is a happy healthy little kid and that's more important then remembering which day he cut each tooth or added a new word.
While I'm talking teeth and words....He has four front teeth on top, cutting both top molars, and three front teeth on bottom. His vocabulary has been increasing rapidly in the last two months. It's both fun and frustrating since he still won't say Momma!
So far he says, Uh oh, nono, Kitty, dog, meow, woof, truck, duck, sis, daddy, thank you, car, dropped, stuck, pants, socks, shoes, binky, ball, hot (and will blow on hot foods)...that's all I can think of at the moment but I know there's more. I'm trying to teach him to say help instead of screeching like a stuck pig when he gets upset with something. He's about 26lbs, probably more now since I weighed him a few weeks ago, and mostly wearing 18-24mth clothes.
|crazy cuties! Owen stylin his new shoes (size 5 1/2 !)|
