10 months

Owen is 10 months old already.  Can you believe it?  He spent his 10 month old birthday by "helping" Grandpa bale hay.  His first experience!  It was 90 with a breeze, and it was great. :)

While he still enjoys having some sort of structure to his day {naps around 9:30 and 1:30, bedtime between 7:30 and 8}, he is, for the most part, SO adaptable to whatever we're doing, and I really appreciate that he never gets overly fussy, until we get home. :)   He crawls like a maniac {speed crawls whenever he sees mommy},  pulls up on things like crazy, recently started cruising the couches, and just yesterday started letting go and balancing for a couple of seconds at a time.  He'll be walking soon. :(  He says, "bbbbbb" for the motor sounds of tractors and four--wheelers, often babbles "dada, mama," and accurately says "moo" whenever he sees a cow.  He enjoys "singing" {a prolonged aaaaahhhh} when we play the piano or sing with him.  He has four teeth.  The front-top right tooth JUST broke through a couple of days ago.  His weight has dropped off a bit {20 lbs, 2 oz, 35% a couple of weeks ago, so he's not REALLY a chub-a-lubs, but we still affectionately refer to him as such!}, but that is expected at this age.  He has really started to fight his brother.  Whenever Isaac tries to do anything he doesn't want to do, or takes one of his toys.  He'll push at him, or just scream.  Today, Owen even slapped Isaac....boy oh boy, I can already tell it's going to get MUCH more fun.  Ha!

Owen, you are the BEST.  We love you to the moon and back.

PS - That bruise on his forehead?  That's because Daddy took him into the bathroom, and Owen clocked his head on the toilet!

Did you know the picture are sideways? Or did the heat really get to me that much while we were baling hay?

Yes, I know they're sideways. Blogger is stupid.
