Sticky hot

Owen and I are now sans Dad in New Jersey. We were really sad to see him go, but loved the bonus 12 or so hours we got with him yesterday when his flight was delayed.

Our little man is having a really hard time adjusting, so much harder than last time we were in the US. Last night he was up every 30-45 minutes.... oh my goodness. And he is the crankiest ever! His two little bottom teeth are really coming up so maybe that has something to do with it. Oh, and the crushing NJ heat and humidity isn't helping. We attempted to go for our first run with our new jogger stroller this morning and didn't even make it down the driveway. I think Owen is also really worried about Grandma, who is still in the hospital and hasn't gotten to hang out with him very much. ):

Owen did have his first pool experience yesterday!!! It is undecided if he enjoyed it... he didn't hate it, but wasn't smiling very much. Especially when Dad dunked him, much against Mom's wishes!

With his Mom:
That's all for now. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers please!

Owen is 6 months old!!!! We can't believe how fast time has gone by and how much our little man has grown. Just look at that face..... the cutest little guy I've ever seen!

We had a great long weekend with Dad as he took off yesterday to celebrate Owen's 6 month birthday. We are looking forward to seeing the NJ family this weekend! Owen can't wait to be on US soil again!

Owen now officially loves his rings...

We also played ball with Dad for the first time this week!

Have a good week everyone!

First word? Yeah, we know it's not really, but it definitely shocked us when Jason was trying to make Owen say "Da-da" and he repeated him amongst his babbling. I think he's just prepping for Father's day in 2 weeks. I'll try to get it on video soon. Also, maybe Owen wanted to reward his Dad for playing his favorite new game, called Throw-Me-Up-In-the-Air. Mom and Owen had some great photos taken in front of Big Ben and Parliament with our friends Hannah and Hadley (3 weeks older than Owen). Here's the best one of mother and baby:

Owen is doing really well with the sleep training we started about 10 days ago. We now put him down to sleep awake and he falls asleep within about 10 minutes to his little musical seahorse, a gift from Grandma Connie. He's waking Mom up less to feed during the night, but still every other night or so. And eating - wow! Owen is getting the hang of it and loves his baby rice and apples. Carrots - not really sure about them. Today we start sweet potatos, Mom's favorite vegetable! I pureed myself a nice serving while I was making Owen's. (: I have high hopes he'll like this one.

Anyway -today we are off to baby yoga and Mom's diet meeting. I am now back to my pre-pregnancy weight and can fit into my old clothes... woohoo!

Have a great week everyone! xo
