Happy Birthday Owen

I cannot believe that it was a full year ago that Owen was born. Time has flown. It has been the best year!!! Jeff and I are so blessed to be the parents of such a wonderful child.

In one year he has gone from sleeping sweet baby to a movin and groovin crazy boy. I love it!!! I remember being so scared and intimidated by this sweet innocent baby with NO CLUE what to do. I still have no clue but Sweet Baby Owen makes being a mommy really simple.

He is crawling all over the place, using his walker to get around, into EVERYTHING, eating grown up food and drinking whole milk. He is growing up TOO FAST. I want to stop time now - just for today and relish in everything. But, this year has been a blast and I know every year in between will be as well.

He is by far the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and Jeff. I can tell he was hand picked for us by God and all of the loved ones hanging out in Heaven. I really think that Papa Bruce had a giant say in the selection process because only he would send me a sassy child with a giant personality and a great sense of humor. I say a thank you every night before going to bed.

Owen is lucky to have so many wonderful people in his life. As much as we are blessed to have him he is blessed to have so many wonderful friends, family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins...the list goes on.
