Owen at 6 months

This is my little Owen and he is the most handsome little boy ever. He brings so much joy to our lives. He is an excellent napper, happy 98% of the time, and a great little brother. He laughs at every thing Brooklyn does and is so patient as she pulls and pokes him while they try and play. Here is a glimpse of Owen James at 6 months old:
  • He sits up and loves to play with anything put in front of him
  • He drools like nothing I've ever seen before
  • Can roll from front to back and back to front but mostly rolls from back to tummy
  • Loves tummy time
  • Is obsessed with Brooklyn and Peek a boo
  • Isn't the best night time sleeper but he is getting better every day. He gave me 6 hrs last bad it was from 6 pm to 12 am instead of 12 am to 6 am. Once he's in a deep sleep he does great but just has a hard time getting to sleep at first
  • Smiles at everyone so he can show off his dimples
  • Blabs mama everyday all day but I don't think he has connected it yet
  • Loves his mama
  • Has 2 teeth and they came less than a week apart. Poor kid as been a teething machine the past couple of weeks and it has been rough.
  • Will put anything and everything in his mouth
  • Loves solid foods. I was procrastinating starting so when his aunt Martha came to visit she helped us get started. Loves applesauce, pears, banans and sweet potatoes. Hates potatoes and avocado. Not much else yet but we are working on it! 
  • Everyone says he is my twin and that he should be a baby model. I mean, just look at him! He is just so handsome I swear I could stare at his face all day long.
  • Weighs 17 lbs 5.5 0z and is 28.5 inches long. He is one tall boy (99%).
Happy 6 months Owen. We are so grateful you are a part of our family. You bring us joy, make us laugh, and fill our hearts with more love than we knew we could hold. Time is going by so quickly. We just can't believe you are 1/2 year old already.  You keep us busy and I am sure as time goes on you'll keep us even busier.

Sorry I haven't blogged in a long time. I really haven't found the time but I couldn't resist sharing these pictures with our loved ones. Hope all of you are doing well and that you enjoy the upcoming holiday season.


  1. I don't think I've ever noticed his red hair before. Taking after the Ellsworths. Love it.

  2. He is so cute. Oh. My. Goodness! And you're looking gorgeous as ever! What a sweet boy you have!

Wise Men Still Seek Him Free Printable

UPDATE:  Hello Everyone! I have noticed that this post has been receiving a lot of traffic via pinterest and The Dating Divas Website. I wanted to welcome you all.

I also post all of my free printables here. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your holiday season.
So the past couple of days I have really been thinking about how I can reflect the true meaning of Christmas in my home. We live in a small two bedroom apartment and there isn't much room to decorate. This morning I was watching the video Wise Men Still Seek Himand felt inspired to create a printable for my home. It's a good reminder to not only seek Him this time of year but throughou…

Hazel's Birth Story

Warning: This is long and is written in detail as it's meant to be my record of her birth. 
Well it's been a long time since I've blogged. Life gets busy and it's hard to keep up. However, I found myself wanting to record the details of Hazel's birth story. She's already 4.5 months old and I am finding that I am starting to forget small things. I want to write them all down before I forget. So here I am, sharing our story, so that I can remember and share it with her someday.

Hazel Anne Power joined our family on September 3, 2017 at 8:40 pm weighing 7 lbs 5 oz and 19.5 inches long. She is my smallest baby. She's 6 oz less than Brooklyn and 1 inch shorter. She is just darling and we are so glad she's a part of our family. 
So I guess I'll start at the beginning. I found out I was pregnant right after Christmas time and was able to share the news with my family that was in town for the holidays. We return home from our trip and I start back up playin…

Big News!

So this is big news for the Power family. I know many of you know a million other people who are currently pregnant but before you roll your eyes and skip over this post completely (ha), read on and hear a little bit about our story.
I am currently 20 weeks pregnant. We just found out yesterday that we are expecting a baby girl. She is due to enter this world on January 3, 2012. So far she is healthy and growing strong. She is growing about a week ahead of schedule. Maybe she'll come before the end of the year. Derek and I will celebrate our 3rd anniversary on the 16th of not too long after our sweet girl is born.
A little about us:
Derek: One of the things I love most about Derek is how patiently he accepts trials in his life. He always has such a good atitude about what life has handed him. When he was 11 or 12 he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Then at age 19 he was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer.  He has now been in remission for 5 years. We are tr…
