updated stats

So I took Owen to the doctor yesterday. Things moving along as they should.
Weight - 20 lbs
Height - 29 in

I love the office that I take him to. I see Nurse Lesley and I LOVE her. She reminds me a lot of Tiffany because she is very earth mother and calm. I am not calm...I stress about everything. She laughed at me yesterday (but in a nice way) because I told her that I tried to give Owen those little finger food things that dissolve but he began to gag so I threw the whole thing away. She said that he will not choke on something that will not block his airways. I am not convinced. He also gags on water so sippy cups have been put on standby.

On the crawling front...still nothing going on. Cooper is now making strides across the floor. Nurse Lesley said that crawling is not a developmental milestone so to not be alarmed if he decides to walk before he crawls. I think crawling babies are cute though so I really hope that he at least makes an effort. I think it is adorable to pretend to chase a crawling baby and watch them crawl really really fast. Cracks me up.

Football season is upon us so Owen and I will be spending quality time together while Bigger Baby goes to the Dome to watch the Falcons lose. My friend Ashley suffers through this same thing during baseball season. At least this year I am not pregnant so I can possibly enjoy a good Georgia game or two. I love football season, don't get me wrong, but watching a team full of millionaires lose is NOT my idea of a good time.

I am clearly in need of an attitude adjustment. I think a vacation is in order.

I have blogging ADD

I have been a terrible blogger. My blogging ADD kicked in months ago and I cannot seem to get myself out of the rut. With nothing exciting going on in my life, I find it hard to pull topics out of thin air to bore my loyal audience.

However, I feel bad so I thought that I would at least blog about not blogging. The irony.

As mentioned though, nothing fun and exciting has been going on in the Ferguson house. Other than Owen just being wonderful, we have been laying low after the families flew back to their respective homes. It was a whirlwind for a few weeks with everyone in town but things are back to normal.

The family visits were awesome!!! I miss all of them so much.

On the Owen front - not much going on. He still thinks crawling is a bore and has figured out that if he fusses long enough eventually someone will put him where he wants to be. I tend to allow the fussiness to go a little longer than Jeff...however, it just does not seem to be something that he is very interested in at the time. We remain patient.

We are starting to introduce the sippy cup during solid food feedings. I am not very calm during choking situations so typically the sippy cup is thrown in the sink at the first cough. We keep trying though.

Owen did get a new big boy car seat. The carrier is no more and now the Evenflow Tribute is in the Nitro. He looks so grown up in it. I was bummed...I remember putting Baby Owen in the carrier about a thousand times when we were about to leave the hospital because I wanted to make sure that he was safe and sound...and I was also convinced that if he was in there wrong they wouldn't let me take him home. He looked so tiny in that thing the first day. Now his feet hang out of it and he looks like a monster in the thing.

The big 10 year reunion is Saturday and I am still debating on what to wear. Like I told Ashley...I just want to be comfortable (not frumpy) and cute. Either way, I think alcohol will make the party much more fun (sorry mom!)

Until next month...(or until I think of other blogs to blog about)
