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 night...to 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!
